The Cole Harbour Wolfpack are entering the NSMMHL playoffs on one heck of a roll. The Wolfpack started the season with back-to-back 2-1 losses in mid-September and haven’t lost in regulation since, including an 18-game win streak from early November through mid-February. Although its offence ranked No. 2 behind Brady Hunter (21-29—50) and Riley Kidney (19-28—47), who finished second and third, respectively, in league scoring, Cole Harbour did it with defence; the Wolfpack allowed only 75 goals, 20 fewer than second-place Halifax. Griffin Kelly led the NSMMHL with a 1.97 goals-against average and 16 wins.
