Last time they met: The Blades were bested 2-1 by the Red Deer Rebels in their first Alberta trip of the season on October 1st. Riley McKay had a goal while Nolan Maier made 32 saves in net. Kyle Crnkovic was named 2nd Star in the post-game ceremony.

What it means for Saskatoon: Saskatoon only play four home games in the month of November – all in a row starting now. Getting a win tonight means starting this home-stand off on the right note.

The stat: 4The Red Deer Rebels have allowed a league leading 4 short-handed goals this season.

The match-up: Ethan Anders vs. Nolan Maier – Just as these last time these clubs met, a big performance by either, or both, goaltender(s) could go a long way in a game that has one goal game written all over it.

It’s a big night for: Tristen Robins – The sophomore forward has started his season off nicely with 14 points (6G-8A) in 18 games played. Robins most recently had a 2 point night in Calgary (1G-1A) – his 4th multipoint game of the year – and will be on a 3 game point streak should he find his way to the scorer’s sheet again tonight.

90s Night: Hit up the Blades on Facebook or Instagram to submit a 90s song request, get a 90s stylized photo taken in the Photo Booth on the concourse and collect a Retro Rookies hockey card at the door to have signed by the Blades’ rookies post-game!
