The Swan Valley Stampeders will head out on their first real road trip today to face the Steinbach Pistons this evening and finish off the road trip with a game against the Winnipeg Freeze tomorrow.
Swan Valley will take a subpar start to the season (2-2-1) south to face the first place Steinbach Pistons (5-0-0) at the T.G. Smith Centre.
At this time, the Stampeder organization would like to recognize that today is National Day for Truth and Reconciliation and we are taking part in not only learning about our nation’s horrific past, but we are learning to grow together as we all move forward.
Swan Valley has several new faces added to the roster as Head Coach and General Manager Barry Wolff has been actively looking for extra scoring, and to help defend against some of the league’s best forwards. Swan Valley has added defenceman Ashton Fishley from Balcarres, Sask., defenceman Warren Marcotte from Calgary, Alta. and explosive forward Noah Wilson from St. Albert, AB. Fishley, Wilson and Marcotte are expected to be in the lineup tonight against Steinbach.
