Toronto’s Paul Van De Velde tied the game at one two minutes later, but then Joseph Pendenza scored a pair of goals to give Lowell a 3-1 lead after one. Scott Wilson scored late in the second and freshman defenseman Greg Amlong capped the scoring with a power-play goal in the third.
Freshman goalie Connor Hellebuyck played the first half of the game and stopped 12 of 13 shots,
while Doug Carr saved seven of eight in the second half. The River Hawks open the regular season against Vermont on Friday.
-Hellebuyck, a fifth-round pick of the Winnipeg Jets, saved 12 of the 13 shots he faced. He gave up a couple rebounds that he seemed a little unsure of, but for the most part he looked solid. There wasn’t much he could’ve done on the one goal — it came on a cross-box pass to a wide-open player on the doorstep. Toronto tested Hellebuyck with a bunch of high shots, but he was able to take away any open space. Being 6-foot-4 certainly doesn’t hurt.
With the way Pavelec is playing in the Czech Republic, maybe we should just put Hellebuyck in net whenever the next Jets game is
