For the first time in two weeks, the Flin Flon Bombers will hit the ice of the Whitney Forum for a game. That game on the 25th of October had the team defeat the Notre Dame Hounds 7-1. Since then the team split a pair of games on the road, a 3-0 loss against Nipawin and a 3-1 win against the Humboldt Broncos, who they host for two games this weekend.
The Broncos, who find themselves in Flin Flon for the only time this season, sit second in the Kramer Division, five points back of the first place Kindersley Klippers. Them come into town having won their last game, 3-0 against the Nipawin Hawks, and before a pair of losses, one to Melville and another to the Bombers, had won four in a row.
The team is lead primarily by veteran forwards Ryan Aubertin, Jarrett Fontaine and Dylan Fluter, each have 13 points, and of course Cody Pongracz, who sits with 11 (2g, 9a), but the team has a spread out offense with nine players with nine or more points.
First year goalie Cade Spencer has put up some decent numbers, 4-4-0, 2.26 goals against average and 0.918 save percentage, the other option is another 1995 born goalie in Ryland Pashovitz, who’s undefeated in regulation time so far posting a 4-0-1 record to go along with a 1.18 goals against average and a 0.963 save percentage.
Besides the long layoff for the Bombers at home, the team hasn’t played a game since their victory in Humboldt a week ago and in their last 10 games the team is .500 and find themselves in the bottom of the Sherwood division, sitting at .500, but only one point back of third and four back of first in the division.
The team will also be without the services of forward Brett Boehm this weekend, who was named to the CJHL Prospects Game in Nova Scotia, but will welcome newly acquired forward Conner Bucsis.
This weekend is the team’s annual Parents Weekend.
