Blades start the season 1-0 & with a bang!

I think it is safe to say that the Blades and Pats rivalry had the most edge that I have ever seen but maybe not as big as the PA & Saskatoon rivalry but pretty close.

There was no scoring after the first period but in the second both teams potted a goal each. After that the Blades ran errr skated with the game and never looked back.Brendon Wall played a pretty decent replace decent with EXCELLENT,his performance earned him 1st star hounors.

Rookie defenceman Dalton Thrower earned himself 14 penalty minutes and no this is not a typo. That is quite the first WHL game for a 16 year old!!!!

Teigan Zahn and Garrett Mitchell fought in the 3rd and I would have to say that Zahn got the best of Mitchell but if you listened to the game or were at the game then you be the judge.

The final 3 minutes was when the game started to become a show because the focus at this point was not really to score goals. The Blades went on to defeat the Pats 5-1 in front of a crowd of 5,219.
They outshot the Pats 39-18.

The Pats should have a decent team once they get some veterans back from NHL camps.

The Blades next action is a road game on the 23rd against those same Regina Pats.

The next home game for the Blades is on the 25th when the Edmonton Oil Kings enter Credit Union Centre. Be there!!!!!!!!!!!
