The teams who have a player(s) participating in the Can/Rus Superseries may have to make due without those players...... for example the Regina Pats will be without the services of both Colton Tuebert and Jordan Eberle for 2 games. The Pats appealed but the league denied that. The Blades may have some line-up juggling to do of their own as Curtis Hamilton and Stefan Elloitt are playing in the game on the 26th in Kelowna. So it may be unlikely that they will play Friday in Saskatoon with the Blades,but I hope they play on Saturday.
The Blades will take part in their 1st set of back to back home games this weekend and as a fan "I love this"
Every player the team has been growing or attempting to grow a mustache in the month of November & there is a very good video on http://www.saskatoonblades.com/. Watch it to see who is voted to having best mustache and worst one!!!!!!!!
My vote for best mustache goes to Braeden Johnson and worst goes to Travis Toomey.
3 current Saskatoon Blades players and 1 of the Blades prospects have made their respective U 17 teams.
Representing the Blades on team Pacific are Duncan Siemens and Dalton Thrower who were 1st and 2nd round picks of the Blades in 2008.
Also representing the Blades except on team West are Brent Benson (1st round pick in 08) and goalie prospect Tyler Oswald (5th round pick in 2008 as well)
Good luck guys!!!!
