Top 5 Plays of 2017: Alaska Nanooks Hockey

By  | 

FAIRBANKS, Alaska - We're going to continue our series of the top plays of 2017.
Tonight we're going to look at Nanook Hockey.

Our lone honorable mention in this list saw the strangest Goal of the year so far. The Puck actually slides under the net and play continued for some time until the officials reviewed it and gave the Nooks their goal.
The Number 5 Spot belongs to Rookie Standout Steven Jandric. After the Nanooks and the Air Force Falcons skated to a tie, they played a 3-on-3 double overtime period. There Jandric knocked in what would have been the game winner in a WCHA Contest.
Ross Heidt Takes the Number 4 spot on this list with a long distance shot against Northern Michigan. Heidt fires one from the Blue line, it then is touched by the Goalie before skidding into the goal.
Number 3 goes to Justin Woods who gets past former Ice Dogs Goaltender Patrick Munson to light the Lamp for his hometown team. This goal sent the Teddy Bears flying onto the ice for the annual Teddy Bear Toss.
Our number two play sees Tyler Cline pass the puck to Zach Frye. Frye then sends it backwards to Cline, who finishes the job to help secure the win against Simon Fraser.
And our number one spot on the list shows the James LaDouce snipe one between the pipes to secure the Governor's Cup for yet another season. This is the fifth recognized Gov Cup win in a row for the Nooks, but UAA Hasn't held the cup since 2009.
