Swan Valley Star and Times Game Day Report

The Swan Valley Stampeders will be getting some relief to their lineup as they head south for their eighth and final regular-season matchup with the Waywayseecappo Wolverines.

The Stampeders are coming off a 3-2 shootout loss on home ice against the Wolverines last Saturday at the Centennial Arena. The Stampeders started the game on time tonight and jumped out to a very early 2-0 lead on goals by Ethan Matchim and Emile Pichette, but that was it as the offence dried up and the Wolverines found a way back into the game, and eventually won the game.

On a positive note, the Stampeders are on a two-game point streak and will need to pick up more tonight if they want to stay in third place in the West Divison.

Swan Valley will see a pair of players return to the lineup that will bring in some much-needed grit and toughness to all areas of their game. Lare Pahtayken and Nicolas Roussel will dress tonight in Wayway while Myles Mason remains out with an injury. Not dressing tonight will be Jayden Mosiondz and Trey Sauder, who has been suspended two games as a result of his third kneeing penalty in the same season as per the Junior A Supplement suspension guidelines.

SVS – Carter Cockburn (18G, 25A), Quinn Mulder (12G, 23A), Brad Fortin (12G, 18A) and Adam Rajsigl (6G, 23A).
