The Portage Terriers look to get back in the win column tonight as they host the OCN Blizzard at 6:30 at the PCU Centre. Portage is well rested coming into tonights game; they haven't played since a 9-3 loss in Winkler on Tuesday. The Blizzard on the other hand are playing their third game in three nights. The Terriers and Blizzard have met twice already this season with Portage winning 5-4 in overtime, and 5-2.
Players to Watch:
Brady Keeper: The captain of the Blizzard is a fiesty defenseman who leads his team in scoring, and isn't afraid to drop the gloves. He fought Terrier forward Scott Mickoski the last time these two teams met.
Emiliem Boily: The 19 year old goaltender from Durham-Sud Quebec has a record of 4-2, a 2.46 GAA and .918 SV%.
Chase Brakel: Last week he was the runner up for the Recycle Everywhere player of the week honour and currently has a point in all 11 games he has played this season.
Josh Sielsky: Acquired in a trade from Nipawin this week for Future Considerations. The 18 year old forward had 44 points in 36 games last season in the SMHL. Details on the trade can be found here.
