2002 born forward Braden Plaschewsky was returned to the Midget AAA Calgary Buffaloes of the Alberta Midget League. Plaschewsky was a 2nd round pick of the Blades in 2017. The young pivot got a long look during the pre-season, appearing in all 6 of the Blades’ pre-season wins, scoring 2 goals in the process.

Goaltender Koen MacInnes, also a 2nd round pick of the Blades in 2017, has been returned to the Burnaby Winter Club’s Midget Prep squad of the CSSHL. MacInnes had a strong showing in three pre-season starts for Saskatoon. The 16-year-old netminder not only won all three of his starts, but posted an impressive .929SV% and 2.27GAA.

The Blades now look ahead to the first game of the regular season which goes on Friday in Swift Current against the reigning league champion Broncos.

Both teams will return to Saskatoon for the Blades’ home opener on Saturday, September 22nd, starting 7:00pm at SaskTel Centre. Tickets are on sale now or call the Blades office at 306-975-8844 for more information.
