The Soo Greyhounds returned to game action on Sunday afternoon, and the result was a learning experience for both veterans and rookies in the lineup.

Holding a 4-3 lead midway through the third period, the Sudbury Wolves scored three times in a span of 1:02 to break the game open en route to an 8-4 Ontario Hockey League exhibition win over the Greyhounds at the GFL Memorial Gardens.

For the Wolves, it was the second time in the contest that the team had scored four consecutive goals.

Greyhounds coach John Dean said the game was a reminder “that nothing is given for free in this game.”

“Some habits got exposed and that’s what happens when you play at this level,” Dean added. “I saw flashes of some really good things and some habits that we’re going to need to break over the course of the next three or four weeks before the regular season starts.”

While it wasn’t one specific issue, Dean said big mistakes were costly at times in allowing the Wolves to take advantage in transition.
