Archie and Alex giving it a 1-2 punch.

IceDogs Drop Frontenacs 6-2

Dougie Hamilton led the Niagara IceDogs to a 6-2 victory over the Kingston Frontenacs with a goal and two assists in front of another sold-out crowd at the Gatorade Garden City Complex Sunday afternoon. Darren Archibald also notched two goals and an assist for the 'Dogs in their convincing win over the visiting Fronts.

Mark Visentin stopped 30 shots and picked up an assist in his first game back in net for the IceDogs since the IIHF World Junior tournament in Buffalo, while Jason Wilson, Andrew Agozzino and Johnson Andrews also potted goals for Niagara.

The IceDogs kicked things off at the 11:15 mark of the first on the power play as the Hamilton brothers collaborated efforts with Freddie making a cross-crease pass right onto the stick of brother Dougie who was pinching in from the point. Dougie made no mistake in one-timing the puck into the net to give the IceDogs a 1-0 lead.

The Frontenacs looked outplayed until the dying minutes of the period when Nathan Moon was the first to score for his team after an awkward play behind the IceDogs net, before Mark Visentin's World Junior teammate Erik Gudbranson potted a goal from the point to put Kingston up 2-1 after 20 minutes of play.

Things got rough just past the midway mark of the second as Erik Gudbranson seemed to be on a mission to drop the gloves as he went after a much smaller Alex Friesen in front of the Kingston net. After several players took roughing penalties, Gudbranson's double minor put the IceDogs on a four minute power play.

Andrew Agozzino converted almost right away with the man advantage to pick up his 25th goal of the year, before Darren Archibald followed up soon after with a wrist shot from the top of the circle to put the IceDogs up 4-2 - both goals came on the power play.

The second period ended on a physical note as Johnson Andrews went toe-to-toe with Connor Stokes after Stokes was pestering the IceDogs throughout the majority of the game. Both players were throwing bombs but Andrews' landed the majority until he slipped to the ice and Stokes took four late shots, striking Andrews' head while he was lying on the ice.

After sitting out for the remainder of the period, both players would return in the third.

The IceDogs did a great job killing off a five-on-three and a few other minor penalties in the third period, and things calmed down quite a bit in the final frame allowing the 'Dogs to stay composed and hold onto the lead.

The Fronts pulled their goalie in the final minute in efforts to tie the game, but Darren Archibald scored on the open net to pick up his second of the game before Johnson Andrews came back after his fight and scored a beautiful breakaway goal with just 15 seconds left to give Niagara a 6-2 win over Kingston.

The IceDogs will return to action this coming Thursday, Jan. 13 as they host Toronto Maple Leafs draft pick Greg McKegg and the Erie Otters at 7 p.m.

Tickets for this and all other IceDogs home games are still available and can be purchased at any IceDogs ticketing location. For more information, please contact the IceDogs office at 905-687-DOG1.

Now Alex and Archie are both Alternate captains.

The Canucks scouting success rate is blowing me away.

Niagara IceDogs overage forward Darren Archibald has been named an alternate captain, following the departure of former alternate captain Dylan MacEachern.

Archibald will join captain Andrew Agozzino and alternate captain Alex Friesen as part of the IceDogs on-ice leadership group.

Archibald was acquired from the Barrie Colts in a trade in early December and signed an entry level contract with the Vancouver Canucks shortly after joining the IceDogs.

The Newmarket native is in his third OHL season and has 76 goals and 78 assists for 154 points in 163 carrer OHL games, including 7 goals and 9 assists for 16 points in 14 games with the IceDogs.

The IceDogs would like to congratulate Darren on being named one of our alternate captains and look forward to his continued success.

I wonder if he will go to Manitoba at the end of the year? I guess it all depends on how the playoff situations are for both the Ice Dogs and the Moose. I think the Ice Dogs will make it pretty far, although the Moose are in a pretty good spot too.

Well, unless the Icedogs implode, they will be going deep this year. They are 3rd in their conference right now, and Archibald has given them a big boost. I don't think he'll have a chance to join the Moose until next season.

The IceDogs do seem to have a good team, so hopefully Archibald and Friesen have a good long playoff run. Everyone was all hyped up when Hodgson took his Battalion team to the OHL Finals in '09, and Sauve had a nice run to the QMJHL Finals too last year. So hopefully Friesen and Archie can make it 3 years in a row. Going on long playoff runs like that is invaluable experience that you just can't simulate in training or other modes of development.

With a scoreless overtime period, the game would be forced into a shootout. Mark Visentin stopped Sudbury's first shot by Michael Sgarbossa, and newly named assistant captain Darren Archibald scored for Niagara. Marcus Foligno answered back with a goal of his own, but Visentin stopped another shot and Ryan Strome scored on the next shot to give the IceDogs a 5-4 shootout win.

Archie wows 'em with two goals in a 6-5 win over Plymouth:

Jason Wilson led the Niagara IceDogs with three points and the game-winning goal in the shootout to boost them to a 6-5 victory against the Plymouth Whalers Friday night.

IceDogs assistant captain Darren Archibald opened the scoring at the 5:37 mark of the first with the help of Steven Shipley and Shane Rover.

Just over five minutes later, Jason Wilson continued his exceptional offensive play as of late but notching his 12th of the season and second in as many games while Ryan Strome picked up the assist to make it 2-0 after twenty minutes.

Freddie Hamilton then followed suit 9:05 into the second for his 24th goal of the season, with Strome and Wilson both recording their second points of the night.

Plymouth scored their first goal of the game on a power play late in the second to cut the IceDogs lead to 3-1.

The home team then followed up with another marker to open the third frame as Stephan Noesen put one past Dalton McGrath to bring the game within one goal just two minutes in.

Austin Levi tallied a clutch short-handed goal at the 6:42 mark of the third to tie things up, but Darren Archibald stepped up and scored his second goal of the game on that very power play to regain the IceDogs lead 4-3.

Whalers' grinder Jamie Devane notched a goal late in the third to give the game an even score of 4-4, but the third period scoring frenzy would only continue as Jason Wilson kept up the trend and picked up his second of the night from Strome and Freddie Hamilton just seconds later.

Devane then took a turn scoring two goals on the night a minute after Wilson's goal to tie things up once again late in the third, and the 5-5 game was taken into overtime.

With a scoreless extra frame, the IceDogs found themselves heading into their second shootout in as many games.

The first six shooters failed to convert, but Jason Wilson proved to be on his game as he scored the shootout winner to give the IceDogs an important win over the Plymouth Whalers.

Archie picks up his 28th goal as the Ice Dogs beat the first place Spirit 5-4.

The Niagara IceDogs picked up their second straight road victory over the Western Conference's first place Saginaw Spirit. Freddie Hamilton scored 2 goals and three points while Ryan Strome added three assists.

Freddie Hamilton wasted no time in getting the IceDogs on the board as he potted his 25th of the year just 19 seconds into the game with the help of Ryan Strome.

David Pacan followed up just under seven minutes in with Andrew Agozzino and Dougie Hamilton adding helpers to make it 2-0.

Saginaw sniper Josh Shalla then picked up his 37th goal of the season on the power play just past the 13 minute mark to give the game a 2-1 score.

John McFarland then tied the game just over a minute later, but Alex Friesen was able to regain the Niagara lead on a power play opportunity while Strome and Freddie Hamilton picked up their second points of the night on the play.

The score was 3-2 in favour of the IceDogs after the first 20 minutes.

The next goal wouldn't come until the 8:14 mark of the second as Darren Archibald notched his 28th of the year from Simon Gronvaldt to increase the IceDogs' lead to 4-2.

The Spirit made another comeback as Jordan Szwarz scored a short-handed marker to make it 4-3.

Freddie Hamilton continued to dominate with his second tally of the night eight minutes later. Strome also picked up his third point of the night, while Tim Billingsley recorded his first point since returning from injury.

That made it 5-3 IceDogs going into the second intermission.

Justin Kea brought the game within a goal once again by scoring at the 17:09 mark of the third, but that is as close as it would come as the IceDogs held onto a 5-4 lead to pick up their second straight win on the road.

http://www.thescouti...ngs-top-76-100/

The scouting report ranked him #100 overall, despite missing the 2009 draft.

Signing Archie was like getting a free 4th round pick.

"Archibald concludes TSR’s rankings after surprisingly going undrafted a year ago. There is a lot of talk that the 19 year old will be a mid-round selection this year, however, after providing steady play for the Colts all season long. Some nights he has the ability to be the best player on the ice, combining his physical play with soft hands, a package that should ensure that he doesn’t go undrafted again in Los Angeles. "
