What To Watch

Lethbridge Point of View

Wins A Premium: The Hurricanes have had a tough go in the month of November. The ‘Canes are current 1-7-2-0 this month and have lost ten of 11 games. Saturday will be their last game of the month.

Washington Woes: The Hurricanes had a long losing streak in Tri-City continued last night with a 4-1 loss to the Americans – their last win in Kennewick was December 11th/1999. Much the same in Spokane, the ‘Canes haven’t won a game at Spokane Arena since 2003.

Spokane Point of View

Helewka Terrific: Adam Helewka has been outstanding for the Chiefs this season. The veteran after 50 points a year ago in 62 games, is well on pace to shatter that. In his first 20 games of the season, Helewka has 30 points (13g-17a)

Offense From Defense: Jason Fram, much like Helewka, has been terrific this year. Fram, who had an impressive 57 points as an 18-year-old last year is poised to better that this year. In 22 games, Fram has 23 points.
