The Waywayseecappo Wolverines will wrap up their three-game homestand on Thursday night when they host the OCN Blizzard in search of a fourth straight win.
Fresh off of a 5-2 triumph over the Selkirk Steelers earlier in the week, Waywayseecappo has gotten back to business after an early-season skid.
The Wolverines were dominant at times against the Steelers, outshooting Selkirk 41-22. Steelers Goaltender, Levi Mitchell was one of the only reasons the Wolverines were held to five goals.
For the Wolverines and Blizzard, it will be just their second meeting of the season. In their first, OCN opened the scoring before the Wolverines scored three unanswered goals including an empty netter that sealed the 3-1 victory.
In their last four games, it’s been a tale of two teams for the OCN Blizzard. OCN would pick up wins against the Portage Terriers and Swan Valley Stampeders earlier this month before dropping back to back games against the Selkirk Steelers.
Leading the way for OCN has been 20-year-old Ryan Butler who has scored nine goals in nine games with four assists.
Zack Cloutier has carried the mail in net for the Blizzard, going 4-5-1-0 on the year with a .905 save percentage.
