this week in Dragons history, February 17 – 23
February 17, 2011….two familiar names to Dragons fans reached the 100
games played plateau in a 3-1 loss in Calgary against the Canucks. “Scrap
Iron” and “K-Mac” became the 31st and 32nd Dragons to reach the century
mark in this game. Evan Warner and Kevin McMillan were both held off
the scoresheet in their milestone game.
February 18, 2006….5 years before that pair reached 100 games, a local
hockey favorite attained the same distinction. Drumheller's own Talon Berlando
suited up for his 100th game as a Dragon, becoming the 9th to do so at the time,
in a 3-2 overtime loss against Canmore.
February 18, 2008….the Dragons beat Brooks 5-3 at the Arena. The winning
goal was scored by #4, Tyler Moir on Kody Vanrentergem. The goal was Tyler's
20th of the season as a Dragon. He came over in a trade from Drayton Valley
in October of 2007.
February 19, 2007….all-time great Kevin Bui got his 20th goal of the season in
a 3-2 win at Camrose. #19 beat Keenan Boomer for the game-winner in the third
period. Bui would finish the season with a team leading 22 goals and 54 points.
He was also team MVP in 2006-07.
February 20, 2006….the boys lit up the Calgary Royals 8-0 at the Father David
Bauer Arena. Jonathan LaRose kicked out 25 shots for his second shutout of the
season. The 8-goal margin still stands as the biggest margin of victory ever by the
Dragons, and it is also their most lopsided shutout win in team history.
February 20, 2007….Derek Werenka spent most of 2006-07 in the Western
Hockey League, but he returned late in the season to the Dragons. On this date
#11 played his 100th career game as a Dragon, becoming the 15th player to do
so. He made it a memorable one as well, scoring the overtime game winner in
a 2-1 victory in Fort McMurray.
February 20, 2009….2 years after Werenka's heroics, a pair of all-time Dragon
snipers reached the coveted 100-point mark in their careers during an 8-5 win
in Okotoks. Jeff Young drew an assist on a goal by Cody Rainaldi in the first period
for number 100. Later, in the second period, Cam Lamoureux rifled his 16th goal of the
season to reach the 100-point mark.
The Dragons ripped five first period goals in this game, including the second fastest
four-goal outburst in team history. The Dragons scored four goals in a 3.48 span in the
February 21, 2005….second year sniper Joey Martini became the 7th Dragon to
play 100 career games in a 2-1 loss at Canmore. Earlier in the season Martini set
the club record with a 4-goal game against the Canucks. The record stood for over
six years, 455 regular season games, until broken by Brodie Jamieson in December
February 21, 2010….the regular season came to an end on the most disappointing
campaign in Dragons history, as the club missed the playoffs for the first and only
time in their AJHL tenure.
February 17….Adam Gialet, #6 from Morinville, turns 26.
February 17….hard-nosed Lyndon Bartman from Medicine Hat also turns 26.
February 17….”the Jet”, Doug Jones, reaches 21.
February 19….St. Albert native Kyle Teague, who played in 2004-05, turns 28.
