The OCN Blizzard host the Virden Oil Capitals tonight in the final regular season home game of the season. The Blizzard come into tonight’s game as one of the hottest teams in the MJHL; they’ve won five in a row and 12 of their last 13.
The Blizzard sport a record of 38-16-3 and are currently in a three-way tie for second in the MJHL with Selkirk and Winkler at 79 points.
In addition to the hot play of the team as a whole, star defenceman Brady Keeper was the recipient of three MJHL honours; league MVP, defenceman of the year and a member of the league’s first all-star team.
Keeper is set to attend the University of Maine next year to play NCAA Div-I hockey for the Black Bears.
After tonight’s game, the Blizzard will finish off their season on the road next weekend in Selkirk and Steinbach.
Tonight’s game can be heard on 102.9 CJAR in OCN and The Pas and can also be streamed online at www.thepasonline.com. Jaret Schneider will have the call starting with a pregame show at 6:45.
