A great week for Tyler Steenbergen got even better as in addition to the WHL Player of the Week he is also the CHL Player of the Week. If Swift Current’s top line keeps producing close to the level it has to start the season this won’t be the last award for someone from that group.
Also this week NHL Central Scouting released a list of 108 players to watch for the 2018 NHL Draft. Riley Stotts and Max Patterson are both rated as ‘C’ level prospects on the list. This is just the beginning of the draft process and a lot can change before June. It’s good to see both guys are at least on the radar.
Sounds like season ticket sales are continuing strong with a Friday deadline to see if we can hit 1700. They’re around 1630 so that’s really only 35 more pairs of tickets and one lucky fan will win their seat for life. Either way we are going to have a great start towards bigger crowds all season long. Kudos to Broncos fans for stepping up after a great season to reward the team with additional support already.
It’s a busy weekend coming up with games in Saskatoon on Friday, the home opener set for Saturday against Kootenay and a road trip to Moose Jaw on Sunday afternoon. We’ll have all the games for you on The Eagle 94.1 FM with Robertson Family Group Broncos Hockey.
