This post is coming 1 day early because I will have no time to write it up and post it before the game tomorrow because it means a trip straight from work to the Credit Union Centre for the game.
The Wheat Kings and Blades are still 1 & 2 in the division. Finally it will be the 1st time that Blades fans will be able to watch Brayden Schenn.
I am excited for this match-up because it will allow me to look at the Wheat Kings new players.....OK enough about the Wheat Kings. The Blades had a tough road trip against the Wheat Kings and Rebels,as they lost both games but they did muster up a win in Medicine Hat against the Tigers on Saturday night.
The Blades will be without 5 players for awhile after Christmas: Jyri Niemi (injured 1-week and may not even play in the World Junior's) Curtis Hamilton who is injured with a broken collarbone 3-5 weeks and will not be able to face his dad's team...the Kelowna Rockets on Dec 16th. Duncan Seimens,Dalton Trower and Brent Benson will all be playing in the U-17 Tournament.
