HONOURING ACHIEVEMENTS THIS SEASON AND SAYING GOODBYE TO GRADUATING PLAYERS!
Friday night, the Weyburn Red Wings Hockey Club held their annual Awards Night & Windup.
With thank yous, goodbyes to graduating players and awards, there was a quite a few heart wrenching moments, which included a standing ovation for longtime equipment manager Ed Istace, a heart felt Captain’s speech from Mike Eskra and saying goodbye to the graduating players – Braden Mellon, Donavon Lumb, Ian Parker, Connor Burk, Jake Wozney and Carson Rose!
