The Trail Commercial Hockey League returned to the ice shortly after Christmas, with some teams still nursing the affects of the holiday season.

Allstar Maintenance and Arlington skated to a 3-3 draw on the same night the cellar-dwelling Firebird scorched league-leading Re/Max 6-1, thanks to a two goal and two assist performance from the inscrutable Eric Hill.

Three nights later, Re/Max returned to form with an 11-4 pasting of Arlington, while the Allstars pummeled Firebird 10-1 to move within two points of second place and idle OK Tire.

Graham Proulx once again led the onslaught for Re/Max scoring four times and adding two helpers, while Dave Eccles had a big five-point night on two goals and three assists.

Re/Max’s Gabe Gaudet also pitched in with a pair of goals and a helper, while Daryl Zol netted a hat trick for the Big A in the loss.

Meanwhile, the Allstars got a hat trick from Ryan Jenner and a pair each from Kelly Sidoni and Layne Stopanski in the 10-1 drubbing of Firebird.

The TCHL hits the ice this week with Allstar facing Firebird at 7:15 Thursday and the Arlington taking on OK Tire at 8:30 p.m. at the Cominco Arena.
