Tonight – The Saskatoon Blades host their annual Local Heroes Night to honour all the brave men & women who serve out community and beyond. Be in your seats early as a special pre-game ceremony is set to begin at 6:55pm.

As for the game, the Saskatoon Blades go head to head with the Regina Pats for the 5th time this season. The Blades lead the season series 3-1 and come in to tonight looking to snap a 2 game slide not having played since Tuesday in Calgary. Meanwhile, the Pats were at home last night and fell 5-3 to the Moose Jaw Warriors which ended a 3 game win streak for Regina.

The opponent – The new look Regina Pats put together three straight wins after injecting their lineup with several big name players at the trade deadline last week. Additions include 3 members of the Blades – Cam Hebig, Libor Hájek, and Ryan Kubic… they also acquired 20 year old forward Jesse Gabrielle who was sent back to junior from the AHL’s Providence Bruins. The Pats will come in hungry after suffering a 5-3 loss last night to the Moose Jaw Warriors.

For Saskatoon – The Blades will look to get back into the win column after an unsuccessful road trip last week where they went 1/3 through the Central Division beating Red Deer and losing to Kootenay and Calgary.

The Blades will get a boost offensively as Kirby Dach and Michael Farren return to lineup from injury, but will be without a key contributor on the backend as Mark Rubinchik remains sidelined with a lower body injury.

Injury Report:

F Caleb Fantillo – lower body, 1-2 weeks
D Mark Rubinchik – lower body, day-to-day
