Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League

Game Day Preview – WRW @ ND


It will be the renewal of a rivalry Wednesday night, when the Weyburn Red Wings travel up Highway 39 to Wilcox to face the Notre Dame Hounds. While the Hounds enjoy a different type of home ice advantage with the larger, international sized ice surface, the Red Wings are coming in hot, having picked up two wins in their first two games.

For the Hounds, they will be looking to some of their veteran forwards to help lead the rush in terms of getting pucks in the net. They managed to score five goals in their two games against the Humboldt Broncos to open the season, but it wouldn’t be enough, as they allowed ten in those same games.

For the Red Wings, they are entering Wilcox with the Hounds looking to prove something. They will be looking to Nathan Hargrave to continue to stand tall in the crease, and keep the puck out. The efficient power play for the Red Wings, which went 3-for-7 Saturday against the Terriers, will capitalize on any mistakes the Hounds make discipline wise.
