The Bozeman Icedogs wrapped up their regular season with a pivotal sweep against the Sheridan Hawks on home ice.

The 4-3 and 5-2 wins over Sheridan gave Bozeman the Frontier Division regular-season title in the North American Three Hockey League.

In the Friday opener, Hazen McKay earned first-star honors with his two goals and one assist. His brother, Luke, chipped in a goal and set up two more. Goalie Conan Hayton made 36 saves in net for the Icedogs.

In the Saturday finale, Chase White scored twice, while Jack Greeley, Christian Veneruzzo and Mikhail Greeley joined him on the scoresheet with a goal apiece. In net, Domagoj Troha made 24 saves.

“This weekend for me personally was a dream come true. We’ve gone through a lot of adversity as a group. We’ve worked hard for this all year, and it was nice to see the hard work and preparation pay off,” Bozeman coach Rainer Londino-Green said. “We have bigger things in mind for the rest of the season and playoffs, but for now we’re gonna take a couple of days and enjoy what we accomplished thus far. I am looking forward to working with this group of young men and making some waves in the playoffs.”

The NA3HL Frontier Division playoffs will begin this week, but the Icedogs will have a bye. Their first games will be next week.
