What To Watch

Lethbridge Point of View

Keep On Rolling, Rolling, Rolling: The Lethbridge Hurricanes continued to roll this weekend. The team had their season-long six game winning streak snapped on Saturday with a 3-2 overtime loss in Red Deer but the ‘Canes jumped back in the win column on Monday night with a 6-4 win at Rogers Place in Edmonton. The Hurricanes are now 7-0-1-0 in their last eight games.

Giorgi-OH-so-Wonderful: Buffalo Sabres draft pick Giorgio Estephan is on a tear. The fourth year veteran enters play tonight on a season-high seven game point streak. In that span, Estephan has racked up 14 points (8g-6a). He also has goals in five straight games picking up seven tallies.

Regina Point of View

They’re OK: Understatement of the year, perhaps? Yeah, the Regina Pats are OK. In fact, the Pats are REALLY darn good. Regina is off to one of their best starts ever. Entering a Tuesday match-up with the Kootenay Ice, the Pats had a 19-2-4-0 record while scoring 140 goals (an average of 5.60 per game).

Reigning WHL Player of the Week: Pats defenseman Sergey Zborovskiy was named last week’s WHL Player of the Week. The Russian rear-guard had nine points (3g-6a) in two games on the weekend. That included a seven point effort on Saturday against the Prince Albert Raiders.
