Bowling Green recruit Joe McKeown scores sick goal in Dudley Hewitt Cup (VIDEO)

Buzzing The Net

The Wellington Dukes have worked some magic to make the Dudley Hewitt Cup final, never more so than when Joe McKeown had the puck on a string while scoring an eye-popping short-handed goal.

The Bowling Green recruit delivered a highlight moment of the round-robin of the Central Canada Junior A championship. During host Wellington's 3-0 win over Fort Frances Lakers on Wednesday, McKeown saw an opportunity when Fort Frances made an "awkward line change" during a power play. Instead of dumping the puck into a corner, he undressed the defender and then got goalie Jordan McCartney to bite on the fake before roofing the shot.

Wellington, one of the tiniest communities in Canada that supports a Junior A team, had a long hiatus after losing in the first round of the Ontario Junior Hockey League playoffs. However, as the host of the regional, it's pulled off three wins in a row to advance to the final, including an upset on Thursday over the OJHL champion Toronto Lakeshore Patriots. McKeown, a 19-year-old from Campbellford, Ont., got a charging major and game misconduct during that contest, but his teammates picked up the slack — just like the future Bowling Green player did in their first two games.

The RBC Cup, Canada's Junior A championship, begins May 10 in Vernon, B.C.
