    Leading the Bears to a convincing home sweep of the Regina Cougars, sophomore winger Grayson Pawlenchuk poured in eight points over two games to extend Alberta’s conference winning streak.

    The reigning Canada West Rookie of the Year scored three goals in two games, while also adding five assists and 10 shots as the Bears earned their sixth and seventh straight wins. With the sweep, the Bears also extended their win streak over Regina to 51.

    Pawlenchuk recorded a point on every Alberta goal in their 4-2 win on Friday night, scoring twice in the third period. He followed that up with another four-point performance in Saturday’s 9-0 rout of the Cougars.

    Following his monster weekend, Pawlenchuk now sits second in Canada West with 19 points in 12 games, leading the conference with 10 goals.

    The Canada West leading Golden Bears (11-1-0) will visit the 5-6-1 Manitoba Bisons this weekend in Winnipeg. 

    GAME LOG: Friday, November 15 – Two goals, two assists, six shots and a +3 rating in a 4-2 win over Regina/ Saturday, November 16 – One goal, three assists, four shots and a +3 rating in a 9-0 win over Regina.
