Ted Davis continues to show that he is a late season steal.

The 19-year-old from the small Renfrew County town of Cobden, Ontario, who wasn’t even playing hockey to start the season, once again provided the heroics in a Dryden GM Ice Dogs 3-2 overtime win over visiting Thunder Bay Saturday night.

Davis scored the winner on a picturesque 2-1 with just over 7-minutes remaining in extra time to take Game 1 of the Bill Salonen Cup.

He tied the game with under 3-minutes remaining in regulation time.

Davis also set-up Jacen Bracko to open the scoring early in the game.

Dryden GM outshot Thunder Bay 42-39, with Landon Pavlisin making several key saves. 

The game was being played in front of 910 fans in memory of Jim Wright, the long time Ice Dogs trainer, who passed away suddenly a week ago.

Game 2 if the SIJHlL Final is Sunday afternoon at 4:00.
