The Blades went 2-0 in their first part of their Alberta road trip,the Blades did not score the first goal in this game either.... Jyri Niemi scored the O.T winner giving the Blades the 3-2 victory.
Walker Wintoneak has been hot as of late scoring 11 points in 7 games so far this season. The Blades have really only 4 days to narrow down the 20 year old situation...this is probably the toughest decision Lorne Molleken will have to make all season long....
The Blades are starting too look like a scary team to play against,and that is a good sign. If only they could attract the same size of crowds that were at the NYI NHL preseason games. I guess the people of Saskatoon just do not know that WHL hockey is still good hockey and relatively cheap.
The Blades next games are in Calgary and Edmonton next Saturday and Sunday respectively. On Thursday a choice must be made. Will it be Kytnar,Hulak,Wintoneak,or Klassen that is given their walking papers? Stay tuned right here for the details......
On the Injury front Charles Inglis will apparently play next weekend...... Milan Kytnar is still healing from an upper body injury.
The Blades record is now @ 5-2-0-2 good for 12 points and 1st place in the east division,where they belong...for now.
