After a major roster turnover in the summer, drafts, trades, camps, injuries and pre-season games we are ready for opening night. There’s nothing quite like it. Hockey is always fun but there’s something a little extra special about opening night. For rookies it’s that dream come true playing a WHL game, for veterans an opportunity to take the next step and for coaches/management their first real chance to see if all their hard work is paying off. These games count and as much as there is still lots of uncertainty the grind begins today and every point matters.
Our pre-game show from Brandon starts at 6pm on The Eagle 94.1 FM. You can click here to listen live online.
