Since coming together in Regina, the trio are on a three-game point streak after they connected for the Raiders’ lone goal on Friday. Wiesblatt is riding a three-game streak, Protas has points in five straight, and Watts leads the team with a six-game point streak that dates back to last season.

ZACK IS BACK: Defenceman Zack Hayes made his season debut on Friday night against the Blades. Hayes was most recently attending training camp with the San Diego Gulls, the AHL affiliate of the Anaheim Ducks.
