Season Series:  Flin Flon leads the season series 2-0. 

Team Scope:                                                                             

Ice Wolves:  The once powerful Ice Wolves are in a rebuild season in 2012-13.  They traded away Nathan Boyer and Brennan Ritchie to Melville and lost the services of forward Rhyse Dieno to the WHL.  The team has scored a lot this season, currently sitting tied for fourth in the league, but they give up a lot too, giving up the most in the SJHL.

Bombers:  The team has defeated the Ice Wolves twice this season having success against their northern rivals, something that has been rare the past few seasons.  But the club is coming into tonight’s action losers of seven of their last 10 and only two up no on Humboldt for first in the North.  The team is also without the services of forwards Riley Storzuk, Kevin Lacroix and Dylan Balaski and defenseman Danys Chartrand.  Tonight’s game is the first of four in five nights before the Christmas break.
