It’s been a great month for Stettler Lightning assistant captain Landon Potter. Last week, he was named player of the week in the Heritage Junior Hockey League. This past weekend, he helped the Lightning win two home games in as many nights to stay alive in the junior B league’s playoff race.
Potter netted a hat trick Saturday as the Lightning clipped the High River Flyers 5-2. Connor Doucette and Doug Blacklock also scored, while Simon Thieleman made 39 saves.
On Friday night, the Lightning beat the Mountainview Colts 4-1 on goals from Potter, Scott Ternes, Adam Ternes and Wyatt Haustein, and a 36-save performance from Thieleman.
This Friday, the Lightning visit the Airdrie Thunder, before hosting the Blackfalds Wranglers next Tuesday night.
