Klippers Game Day

The Kindersley Klippers (1-1-0) play host to the La Ronge Ice Wolves (2-1-0) Wednesday night. Puck drop is 7:00pm.

Last game:

After a season opening victory the Klippers were on the road in North Battleford last Saturday night for the back end of a home and home. Although the Klippers took an early lead it was Stars who came away with the 9-5 win.

Goaltender Riley Ross had a tough outing getting pulled early in the second for a short stint and then finally at the 8:35 mark of the second period in favour of Josh Thorimbert. Jordan Braid, Travis Eggum, and Taylor Duzan combined for 12 points in the game.

The La Ronge Ice Wolves were in North Battleford last night taking on the North Stars and it wasn't a favourable outcome. Both teams were able to get 38 shots a piece on goal but it was the Stars who found the net giving them the 5-2 win.

The Ice Wolves pulled goaltender Chris Jackson in the second period paving the way for Adam Bartko and the North Battleford product was fairly solid the rest of the way.

Head to head:

This is the first of four meetings between these to clubs.
