Saskatoon wins 2 games.

The Blades played the Calgary Hitmen. A crutial game because they are in a race with the Hitmen for a playoff spot.  This game was a close game. The home town Blades won it in Overtime.

Last night Saskatoon faced a Red Deer Rebels team who at the trade deadline traded away assets for draft picks.  Despite the small crowd. The Blades grinded it out for 60 minutes. Nice to see 4 different goal scorers!  They came away with the win. 3 more crutial home games for the Blades coming up.

It will not be easy. Nothing ever is in life though.  It would be nice to see Saskatoon make the playoffs. Maybe Mason MCarty will return to the line up soon??

Blades lose 2.

Friday night the Saskatoon Blades played Moose Jaw. They lost 4-0.  Saturday night they returned to Saskatoon and took on the Tri City Americans.  They also came up short losing 2-0. The Blades next game is on Tuesday against the Calgary Hitmen. The WHL trade deadline is on Tuesday. I think that the Blades are done trading.

This probably means another season of no playoffs.

The owner of the Saskatchewan Rush is interested in buying the team.  The Blades said the team is not for sale.  Well when the Blades have no fans left. Then they might have to sell.

Blades lose 2..

Saskatoon faced the Brandon Wheat Kings in a home and home series. They lost both games.  Each close games in terms of score. 

Now the WHL has their Christmas break. So on behalf of myself. I hope all fans of the WHL have a safe and merry Christmas.

Maybe Santa will be good to the Blades this year?? Haha.

Blades lose in Overtime. Trade Sloboshan and Reid to Spokane.

So the Saskatoon Blades played another hockey game tonight. They jumped out to a 2-0 lead... Oh that was great.... WRONG. The Oil Kings scored 2 goals to tie it.

The Oil Kings peppered 46 shots at the Blades net. The Oil Kings scored 11 seconds into Overtime.   The mini win streak is over.
There was a trade rumoured between Spokane and Saskatoon. It happened. Blades trade Wyatt Sloboshan,Nolan Reid and a 3rd round pick to Spokane Chiefs for F Markson Bechtold and local product Evan Fiala. We will see if this trade helps the Blades reach the playoffs.

The Blades have put Kolten Olynek on Waivers.  They had too when Fiala was brought in.

  I hope this trade makes the Blades a tougher team to play against. Bringing in 2 tough hard working players. From what I hear of US Division fans.
