Niagara Icedogs netminder Stephen Dhillon delivered again Saturday in Traverse City, stepping into a game trailing 5-2. Dhillon allowed just one goal in 31 minutes making 13 saves many of which is high percentage areas and at key points in the game.  Dhillon who is used to a cool calming prescence between the pipes brought his best to Traverse City. The game needed extra time to decide the winner, as Blues forward Thomas Vannelli finished the game.

Example of one question asked – JORDAN what is your favourite movie and why?

JORDAN – “I would have to say my favourite movie is “Dawn of the planet of the Apes”. “I just couldn’t get over the affects and the graphics. Truly an inspiring and moving film. The plot was great and it kept me at the edge of my seat every moment. Some people say that movies such as Gladiator and The Godather are so good, but to me they don’t hold a candle to the Ape movie. I thought that Caesar the Ape was a lot like Ludzy, always bouncing around, and always angry at whoever crossed him. Truly I can say that “Dawn of the planet of the Apes” was my all time favourite. I will always remember that day I saw the magical movie and the long lasting  affect it  has had on my life, not just personal but hockey as well.  When I feel down about my game I think about Caesar the Ape and what he would do if he had skates and my game starts to evolve similar to Caesar. I start getting pucks deep and finishing hits just like Caesar. During the season my teammates call me Caesar or Ape”
