Kindersley Set To Entertain Former Klipper Taylor Wasden and The Money Men
Your pregame blog is brought to you buy:
Tonight marks game number 47 of 58 for the Kindersley Klippers, as they entertain the Melville Millionaires. Melville has won all 5 of the meetings between the 2 clubs so far this season, 4 of those Mills win came in regulation with 1 coming in overtime.
Despite the lose on Sunday night out in Weyburn, Kindersley put together their most complete game of 2012. They will need to bring that kind of compete level once again tonight, but also find their scoring touch against a very explosive Melville club.
This is a team that loaded up at the SJHL trade deadline bringing in veteran forwards Connor Bradshaw, and Taylor Wasden. They also got Sean Aschim back from the Seattle Thunderbirds in the WHL.
In terms of Taylor Wasden, he will make his return to Kindersley tonight and I bet he gets a standing ovation from the Kindersley faithful. It will be interesting to see if anyone tries to drop the mitts with Wazy tonight, so far in 5 games with Melville, Wasden has been very discipline and hasn't racked up any penalty minutes. I know the Klippers players all respect Wasden as a player and a friend, but on the ice you have no friends, your opponent becomes your enemy.
Kindersley will likely be without forward Tanner Kissick who is still recovering from an upper body injury. No word yet on when he may return to the lineup.
I also want to mention that this will be my 2nd last home game broadcast of the season. I have accepted a radio job back home in Edmonton and will be leaving Kindersley on February 3rd. I will still get to broadcast this weekends road trip and also next Thursdays home game. In terms of the job I will get to an in depth blog post about where I am headed, and my time in Kindersley at some point early next week. I just wanted to put this out their since alot of people have been asking me about it. I hope to see you down at the WCEC tonight, the boys put on a very exciting performance on Sunday and I would expect to see that effort once again tonight!
