The 19-year-old Dalton had 23 goals in 22 contests in his first SJJHL campaign. The product of the St. John’s Privateers major midget program played last season with the Nepean Raiders of the Central Canadian junior league after a year at Stanstead College, a Quebec prep school.
Dalton isn’t the only Breaker putting up impressive numbers. Liam Hynes of Southern Shore leads the league in scoring, averaging more than two points per game, while Peter Kavanagh is in second, right on that 2ppg average.
Meanwhile, there was one game in the SJJHL schedule Monday. That one saw the CBR Renegades down the Avalon Capitals 5-2 at the Goulds Arena.
The loss kept Avalon from securing sole possession of third place in the league standings. As it is, the Capitals and Mount Pearl Blades each have 28 points, with the Blades now having a game in hand.
