The Swan Valley Stampeders return to home ice tonight, looking to win back-to-back games and move to .500 on the 2022/23 season.
They have a big task ahead of them as the defending Turnbull Cup Champions, the Dauphin Kings, are in town. The Kings sit with a record of 1-1-1 and sit third overall in the West Division standings. Swan Valley opened up the season with a 1-2 record, sitting in last place in the West. Swan Valley will need to stay out of the penalty box against the Kings as their power play is clipping along at 30% while their penalty kill sits second in the league at 86.7%.
Head Coach and General Manager Barry Wolff has changed a few pieces to his lineup ahead of tonight’s contest. Thomas Gazich, Griffin Ayotte, Liam Fitzgerald and newcomer Landen Gulutzan will all be in the lineup against the Kings. Full lineup details will be released at 5 pm.
Swan Valley – 75%
Dauphin – 86.7%
Swan Valley –23.1%
