Wolverines take on familiar foe in the Oil Capitals


Wolverines Regular Season Record:  26-15-3-2 Home: 15-5-2-0 PP: 17.7% (11th) PK: 84.3% (2nd) Rank: 1st in West Division, 4th in MJHL

Head Coach: Taylor Harnett

Tonight’s Matchup: Vs. Virden 7:30pm: The Wolverines are very familiar with the Virden Oil Capitals, even though they haven’t faced off since October. The team has lost their last eight contests against them, going all the way back to the 2021-22 season and playoffs. But all the losses have been one goal games, and all three this year have been in extra time.

Last Game: 7-0 Loss @ OCN: No one gives awards out for the worst loss of the season, but the Wolverines might have gotten that award on Tuesday after losing 7-0 to OCN. The team was down 3-0 after the first period, and never made any sort of comeback, allowing two Blizzard players to score hat tricks.

Tonight’s Matchup: @ Waywayseecappo 7:30pm: The Oil Capitals have beat the Wolverines in the last 8 contests that they have played against each other, but all those wins were one goal games, with six of them in overtime. The team has also been a roller coaster ride since the last time they took on the Wolverines though, getting down to the bottom of the West but making their way back up since the start of 2023.

Last Game: 4-1 Loss vs. Portage: The Oil Capitals fell victim to the resurgence of Ryan Botterill, as he scored twice in a 4-1 loss to the Terriers. Portage put the game away in the third period with two goals.
