The Fernie Ghostriders are returning to the Memorial Arena this weekend after spending a month playing their home games in Sparwood.
The arena was closed as crews worked on roof repairs.
Head coach Jeff Wagner says the team is happy to be back home and back to their regular schedule.
“It’s almost similar to when being back in our rink when we had our home-opener, almost a reopening of the memorial [arena],” says Wagner. “Gets us back to our regular schedule as well.”
The Ghostriders welcome the Eddy Mountain Division-leading Kimberley Dynamiters Saturday.
Wagner says Saturday’s game will be a difficult test.
“We talked about what Kimberley does well, we try to eliminate those things,” Wagner says. “We’ll look at some video and see where they’ll be taken advantage of.”
Kimberley leads the season series 1-0.
