Jackson Henningsgard racked up two goals and two assists on Nov. 28, as the Amery boys' ice hockey team (1-2) traveled to Cumberland and shut out the Northwest Iceman, 5-0.

"Cumberland is a tough rink to play in, and we came out a little slow in the first," said Amery Coach Tim Henningsgard. "That is three games in a row... definitely something we need to fix."

Jackson picked up his first assist 11:38 into the game when Ryan Van Blaricom scored an even strength goal.

"At first intermission, we discussed getting pucks to the net, and we did just that throughout the period," Coach Henningsgard said. "It is nice to see the boys respond to something we ask of them."

The second period displayed three Amery goals - the first by Jackson at the 3:04 mark. Assisting on the even strength goal was Bennett Hellie. Hellie pitched in another assist 6 minutes later for a short handed Mac Smith goal. Then Jackson assisted Grady Martin for an even strength goal at the 11:27 mark of the second period.

Jackson finished off the scoring 11:52 into the third period off a Ryan Van Blaricom assist.

Neither team was able to score on the power play as both teams were called for two penalties.

"We played with a solid energy again tonight. If we continue to get this effort, this could be a pretty great season."

Amery goalkeeper Ethan Mork saved all 22 shots faced while Northwest's Aiden Ferguson tallied 24 saves while facing 29 shots on goal.
