Tonight’s Matchup: vs Winkler: The Stampeders need to keep pace in the West Division, and a win on the road tonight in Winkler will help them. Slowly climbing and dropping every week has the team sitting with a sub-par record of 6-6-1-1. The Stampeders need to find a way to stay out of the penalty box, though the team has scored three short-handed goals this season; it’s a trend that has stuck with this team this year and it needs to stop.
Last Game: 4-1 loss to the Portage Terriers: The Stampeders had a chance to pounce on the Portage Terriers early in last night’s contest, but failed to use their power play opportunities to gain a few more goals. Bryden Kiesman scored twice while Austin Peters and Kaden Kohle each collected a goal, leading their team to a 4-1 victory. **Note** since being acquired by Portage, Kiesman has scored all five of his goals against Kobe Grant.
