The OCN Blizzard are hosting the Neepawa Natives for two games this weekend, starting tonight.

 

The Blizzard come into the game sporting a 30-15-3 record, good enough 63 points and for fourth place overall in the MJHL. They’re currently 18 points back of the Steinbach Pistons. They’re in the middle of four game win streak, with their latest win coming last Saturday against the visiting Winkler Flyers.

 

Neepawa on the other hand find themselves near the bottom of the league with a 12-28-5 record and 29 points.

 

OCN forward George King was recently named the MJHL player of the month for January. King scored in 10 of 12 games in January. King had three multi-point games during the month including a massive five point performance (2G, 3A) on the 25th against Swan Lake. He is currently riding a five game point streak and sits second in team scoring with 37 points (27G, 10A).

 

Blizzard goalie Brett Epp was also honoured by the league, being named runner-up for MJHL goalie of the month. Epp went 7-4 in January, including a shutout against the Winkler Flyers on January 28th. Epp is in his second season with the OCN Blizzard after coming over from the Drayton Valley Thunder of the AJHL last season. The Edmonton native is 18-9 on the season with a 2.69 GAA and .916 SV% with two shutouts.

 

The Blizzard have eight games left in the regular season after the weekend. All of the remaining games will be played at home, except for February 21st and 22nd, when they visit the Winker Flyers and Winnipeg Blues.
