It’s an exciting time to be a Moose Jaw Warriors fan! 

After an historic season, clinching the Ed Chynoweth Cup for the first time in franchise history following a thrilling sweep of the Portland Winterhawks, the Warriors are now in Saginaw, Michigan for the 104th Memorial Cup.  

While Saginaw is over 2,100 kilometres away from Moose Jaw, the Warriors aren’t alone as an estimated one hundred fans have made the journey to cheer the team on.  

“It was pretty electric on Friday when they were playing at the Dow Event Centre, having it packed in there and knowing that you had to cheer as loud as you could because there was 5,000 Spirit fans there,” said Mark Abbey. 

Before the Warriors threw their gloves into the air and piled on to Jackson Unger in the WHL Championship game, Abbey knew he was heading to Saginaw. 

“I always said that if the Warriors ever made it to the Memorial Cup that I was going to go, so it's pretty much right after that when they claimed the championship.” 

In between catching games, Abbey is soaking in the fan experience. 

“With the fan fest here and you get to talk and meet a lot of the different people from the different cities of the Canadian Hockey League. It's been a good time.” 

The Moose Jaw Warriors who lost a hard-fought game Friday night against the host team look to bounce back tonight in their second game of the round robin versus the London Knights.  

Puck drop is set for this afternoon at 5:30 p.m. There are limited tickets remaining for the Moose Jaw Events Centre’s Warriors Watch Party. Tickets can be purchased as the events centre box office or online

Additionally, the game can be heard live on Country 100 with the Voice of the Warriors’ James Gallo starting with the pre-game show at 5:10 p.m.
