CLax Preview: Niagara Lock Monsters

Seventeen returning players highlight the opening roster for the Niagara Lock Monsters, who had a league-best 11-3 regular season record in 2013. Creator’s Cup will be the target in 2014.

The top scoring team in CLax last year, Niagara coach Jeff Dowling has plenty of firepower returning. League-leading scorer Corey Fowler (80 pts.) and Andrew Potter (79 pts.) combined to score 63 of those league-high 231 team goals.

Defending the goal was also a strength for the Lock Monsters, with CLax Goalie of the Year Connor Danko sporting a stellar .809 save%.

With nearly the same team that rolled through the regular season last year, Niagara should be considered a top threat to repeat that feat in 2014. The Lock Monsters open league play on Saturday, February 1 playing host to Barrie Blizzard.
