It’s a second consecutive game in an N-H-L building for the Saskatoon Blades Friday night in Calgary.
After beating the Oil Kings 5-3 Wednesday at Rogers Place in Edmonton, the Bridge City Bunch take on the winless Hitmen at Scotiabank Saddledome. The only change head coach Mitch Love is expected to make to his line-up from Wednesday is between the pipes with 19-year-old Dorrin Luding (pictured) making his first-ever start for the Blue and Gold. He has made 31 previous W-H-L appearances, including a pair with the Blades some two-and-a-half years apart. Calgary is off to an 0-3-1 start under new head coach Steve Hamilton. Saskatoon is 4-2-0 going into the 7 p.m. faceoff with the Sardinia Restaurant pre-game show signing on at 6 on 98-COOL.
