Prince Albert, SK – The Prince Albert Raiders (50-9-2-2) play the penultimate week of the regular season with three games in the next seven days.
Last week, the Raiders finished with a 1-1-1-0 record over their three games. The week began with a 5-4 overtime loss to the Lethbridge Hurricanes. On Friday, the Raiders edged the Red Deer Rebels 2-1 in a shootout. Saturday night saw the Raiders fall 4-2 to the Moose Jaw Warriors at Mosaic Place.
This week, the Raiders have a chance to clinch the Scotty Munro Memorial Trophy as the WHL’s regular season champions. The Raiders can accomplish this feat with a win, or an overtime or shootout loss. Alternatively, a loss by the Vancouver Giants in any situation will clinch the trophy for the Raiders. The last Raiders team to win the Scotty Munro Memorial Trophy was the 1984-85 squad that went on to win the Memorial Cup.
The Raiders open the week with a Tuesday night tilt against the Swift Current Broncos (10-45-4-2) at the Art Hauser Centre. The two teams meet again on Friday night in Prince Albert on Friday night. Both games begin at 7 p.m. Tickets are available at raiderhockey.com and the Raider Office.
