For OCN, they come into tonight’s game having won their last 4 games. They’ve knocked off Selkirk, Dauphin, Swan Valley and Winkler over the past 12 days. The acquisition of Tristan Elie has paid dividends for the Blizzard as he’s picked up 12 points in 6 games.

It’s also elevated the play of line mates Jeremy Dumont and George King. King leads the Blizzard with 27 goals and was recently honored as MJHL Player of the Week, and Player of the Month for January! 

For Neepawa, they’ve dropped their last two, 4-1 to Winkler at home and 4-1 to Dauphin on the road. They will need multiple wins over the month of February as they look to make a push for the final MJHL playoff spot. Right now they sit 4 points back of Swan Valley and Dauphin who are tied for 8th place.
