While the Vancouver Canucks implode, the Penticton Vees win streak continues hitting 11 after their 4-2 win over the Wenatchee Wild at the Toyota Town Center.

With the victory Saturday, the Vees have tied their best start under head coach Fred Harbinson. The Vees won their first 11 games during the 2019-20 season.

They got a pair of first period goals from Josh Nadeau and Hiroki Gojsic. Nadeau celebrated his 19th birthday Saturday, finished with three points. Younger brother Bradly had a pair of points and defenceman Ryan Hopkins had three assists.

The birthday boy opened the scoring on the Vees’ first power play of the game. Josh Nadeau picked the corner from the face-off circle at 8:41 of the first for his fifth goal of the season.

Wenatchee scored a pair of goals in the third period, that bookended a Jackson Nieuwendyk tally. The Wild did get one back just before buzzer sounded. Weilandt scored on a Wenatchee power play officially at 19:59 to make it 4-2.

GAME NOTES

Aydar Suniev (visa), Ethan Mann (injured) and Derek Sparks were scratched. Penticton improved their road record to 6-0-0-0. The Vees have scored 69 goals through their first 11 games.

Penticton returns home Wednesday, Oct. 29 as they host the Cranbrook Bucks at the SOEC.
