Blizzard Exhibition

It seemed as though the OCN Blizzard had a tough time to take it on the chin Friday night. The Blizzard faced a hot offensive line as they played the Bombers in Flin Flon.


OCN took more than enough penalties. Carter Comeau got a 7 minute major and a player game misconduct for fighting. The Bombers went on to blank the Blizzard 5-0.


The OCN Blizzard travelled to La Ronge, Saskatchewan for an exhibition game against the Ice Wolves last night. OCN won that one 2-1.


The Blizzard won’t play now until Saturday, an exhibition game against the SJHL Nipawin Hawks at OCN.

The Blizzard will take a short road trip to Flin Flon on Friday for a rematch against the Bombers and that game will be broadcast on 102.9 CJAR.
