It's a Moose Jaw Warriors game day! The Warriors welcome their east division rival, the Saskatoon Blades to the Hangar tonight for a 7:00 p.m. puck drop. The Warriors are coming off a 4-1 loss on Saturday to Brandon, while the Blades suffered a 3-1 loss on Tuesday night at home against the Lethbridge Hurricanes. We will have all the live play-by-play coverage on Country 100.
Sticking with the Warriors, defenseman Max Wanner has come quite a way in his young hockey career, from growing up in Estevan to skating alongside Connor McDavid. The 19-year-old recently attended Edmonton Oilers training camp and just signed an entry-level deal with the NHL club. But Wanner says he's still got a lot of work to do.
"It's one thing to get drafted by a [NHL] team and it's another thing to sign with that team," says Wanner in an interview with Discover Estevan's Nolan Kowal. "It's a pretty big deal, but at the end of the day you still have to go to work every day and show that you deserve an NHL spot."
