Mavericks Defeat Grizzlies 5-2 on MLK Day

West Valley City, Utah – Trey Bradley and AJ White scored second period goals for the Utah Grizzlies but 4 Kansas City goals in the first period were too much to overcome as the Mavericks defeated the Grizzlies 5-2 on Monday evening at Maverik Center.

Utah goalie Peyton Jones was removed with 2:50 left in the first period and was replaced by Parker Gahagen, who stopped all 19 he saw.

Utah got on the board as Trey Bradley scored a shorthanded goal, his first in a Utah uniform 14:27 into the second. The assist went to Riley Woods, who was 1 of 3 players making their Grizzlies debut as he was signed today along with defenseman Ryan Lowney and Ryker Killins. 2 and a half minutes later AJ White scored to make it 4-2 Mavericks. The score remained 4-2 until Luke Bafia scored an empty net goal with 2:11 left in regulation.
