Tonight

The Saskatoon Blades (11-6-1-0) head into Swift Current to battle the Broncos (5-9-2-1) for the second time this season, and first appearance at Innovation Credit Union i-plex since February 15th of 2020.

The Blades are looking to rebound after dropping back-to-back contests to the CHL-leading Winnipeg ICE last weekend, the same team the Broncos fell to on Friday night by a 4-3 score.

Saskatoon went 1-2 on its most recent three-game swing through Winnipeg last weekend, with the lone victory coming in Brandon by a 2-1 score on Friday, Nov. 12.

Saskatoon is amidst a stretch of nine straight games away from home; this being the fourth stop as Curling Canada takes over SaskTel Centre for Canadian Olympic Curling Trials.

This is the second of four meetings between the two squads. They’ll reconvene for a home-and-home series on January 14th and 15th to wrap up their season series.

Who to Watch

Defenceman Tanner Molendyk is expected to return after missing the last seven games with an upper-body injury. The 2020 1st round draft pick notched his first career goal on Oct. 9th vs. the Brandon Wheat Kings, and has also added three assists for four points in nine games this season.

Draft-eligible forward Brandon Lisowsky sits third in team goals with nine on the season, and also netted the game-tying marker against Swift Current at the beginning of the month to force overtime. The Port Coquitlam, BC product is one of three players ranked by NHL Central Scouting, joining defenceman Charlie Wright and Pavel Bocharov.

San Jose Sharks prospect Tristen Robins continues to lead the team in scoring with 28 points (11G-17A) in 17 games. The alternate captain is one back of Matthew Savoie and Mikey Milne for top spot in the WHL scoring race.

On the Record

Brennan Sonne, head coach.
