The Kootenay ICE are in Brandon Friday and Saturday for a pair of road games versus the Wheat Kings.
The ICE are looking to bounce back after falling 5-1 to the Regina Pats Wednesday.
Kootenay is now 1-5 on the road this year.
“When you get on the road you don’t get the matchups.” says Head Coach James Patrick. “Compared to our last road trip it’ll be nice to have [Cale] Fleury and [Martin] Bodak in the lineup and I think that makes us a much better team.”
Cale Fleury missed the last road trip due to a suspension while Martin Bodak was out with an injury.
Head Coach James Patrick says there’s still plenty of room for improvement.
“I just think neutral zone and defensive zone are areas where you can’t work on enough.” explains Patrick. “That’s [areas] I feel we still need to be better at times.”
The ICE are 7-8-1 on the season while the Wheat Kings own a record of 9-5-1.
This will be the only stop in Brandon this season for the ICE.
