The Dryden GM Ice Dogs are Bill Salonen Cup champions for the second consecutive year.

They took the Superior International Junior Hockey league playoff final 3-2 in Game 6 of the best-of-seven series over the North Stars in Thunder Bay last night.

Ted Davis put the puck to the back of the net 55 seconds into the third period to finalize the score at Fort William Gardens and was afterwards named the CCM Hockey Playoff Most Valuable Player for his efforts in helping his side capture the Cup.

The GM Ice Dogs outshot the North Stars 49-37.

Both clubs will return to the ice May 1 in Dryden as they host the Dudley-Hewitt Cup Central Canadian Jr. A Championship.

Joining the two SIJHL sides at the four-team event will be the winners of the Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League and the Ontario Junior Hockey League.
