Season Series:  Nipawin leads the season series 3-2. 

Team Scope:                                                                             

Hawks:  The Nipawin Hawks made some waves during the days leading up to the trade deadline.  Not only did they acquire 1992 born defenseman Carter Berg from Melfort, they also welcomed back 1992 born Eli Lichtenwald from the USHL.  Berg, although not an offensive juggernaut, is big and tough to play against.  Lichtenwald was a circumstance of numbers in Omaha and returned to the Hawks making an impact already scoring five points in the first four games and taking home Player of the Week honors.  The Hawks do lead the season series 3-2 including the last two games at the Whitney Forum.

Bombers:  It’s been a tough go for the Flin Flon Bombers since December 1st.  As shown on SJHL.ca the team has a record of 5-6-0-0 since the first day of December, but things are on the up and up.  The team made some moves at the deadline acquiring 1992 born forward Jason Wark from the AJHL and signing 1994 born defenseman Robert Gawron and both have paid dividends  with Gawron picking up an assist in his first game and Wark scoring a goal and showing immediate chemistry with forward Brett Boehm.   1992 born Andy Blanke also made his debut with the Bombers in La Ronge and despite the 1-0 loss, was an impact in the game generating chances and playing a physical game.  Blanke will not be in the lineup tonight but will be this weekend against the Humboldt Broncos.
