Royals’ Sundher follows up Team WHL selection with six goals in two games

Kevin Sundher has more points than all the other people in the WHL

As of Nov. 1

Kevin Sundher followed up the announcement of his inclusion in the 2011 Super Series with an explosive six-goal weekend.

The Royals’ assistant captain will play for Team WHL versus Team Russia in Regina on Wednesday, Nov. 16. It’s the fifth of six games between CHL teams and Team Russia, which will conclude Thursday, Nov. 17 in Moose Jaw.

The announcement came last Thursday (Oct. 27), and may or may not have sparked Sundher as he exploded for six goals and one assist in two games against the Seattle Thunderbirds over the weekend. The Royals lost to the Thunderbirds in a 4-3 shootout on Friday but came back with a 7-3 win on Saturday at Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre.

Four of Sundher’s goals came in Saturday’s win, a five-point effort that pushed the assistant captain atop all WHL scorers with 11 goals and 21 assists for 32 points in 17 games.

Sundher is the third player in Bruins/Royals franchise history to play in the CHL Super Series. Forward Mark Santorelli played for Team WHL in Cranbrook in 2007 and Ryan Howse played in Prince George last year.

Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre hosted the Super Series in November of 2009 when Team WHL defeated Team Russia 2-1.

The Royals host the Vancouver Giants Friday (Nov. 4) and Saturday at 7:05 p.m.
