It’s time for another Three Stars of the Week, which is brought to you by Paull Funeral Home and Crematorium. Every Monday we will be awarding three players who had a big week and giving them stars. We will be doing this week-to-week with points being collected throughout the season. The top three will players will be recognized and presented an award during our final home game of the regular season.
Friday night was Hockey is for Everyone – presented by Wuskwi Sipihk First Nation. A night to provide awareness and a positive environment for players, families and fans of every race, religion, national origin, gender, age, sexual orientation or ability. Swan wore a custom jersey Friday and Saturday to mark the occasion. The Stampeders will wear the jerseys one more time before the end of the season before auctioning them off. Please stay tuned for further details on that.
The Stampeders organization would like to thank Wuskwi Sipihk First Nation, the Spirit Horse Singers from Long Plain First Nation, Elders, Junior members, Junior Chief and everyone in attendance for our first-ever Hockey is for Everyone game event. It is crucial that we support everyone who wants to play, or is already playing the sport they love, no matter their background.
The Swan Valley Stampeders did not have a great weekend, losing two straight games to the Waywayseecappo Wolverines in a home-and-home series. The Wolverines were able to score four Friday and five Saturday night, only allowing five goals against during those two games.
The Stampeders gained a point in Friday night’s Hockey is for Everyone game night, losing 4-3 in overtime. Swan followed that up with a 5-2 loss on the road Saturday night in Waywayseecappo.
Swan had a tough time scoring goals but also had a tough time staying out of the penalty box, giving up a total of 74 penalty minutes.
