Good morning! The Warriors staff is back at it this morning after a long Easter Weekend. The office will not be open, but the work will not stop. Planning meetings will be taking place to put together the exciting plans for next season.
Congrats to Morgan Rielly and Team Canada on their 4th place finish-- tough last couple games with a OT loss to the Americans to go to the gold medal game and a loss to Russia for the bronze. Morgan had a great tournament. A ton of buzz around Ryan Murphy and Ryan Murray.... the two Ryan's played great.
The Kootenay Ice took both games in Medicine Hat this weekend; sending them back to Cranbrook with a 2 game series lead. The Ice have not stumbled since meeting up with the Warriors in round 1. Portland and Spokane are all tied up at one a piece.
How about them Hawks? Coming from a 3-0 series deficit, they have clawed their way back into the playoffs-- defeating the Canucks in Game 6 last night. Game 7 will be crazy, it goes Tuesday.
The Telus Cup wrapped up this weekend and the winner is.... the Winnipeg Thrashers! You may remember them from their stop in the Friendly City for Regionals back in March. Congrats to them.
The Notre Dame Hounds -- including Moose Jaw Native and tournament star, Olivia Howe-- won the Esso Cup national midget girls' hockey championship Saturday night in St. Albert, Alta. The West champions from Wilcox, Sask., defeated the Edmonton Thunder 5-2 in the gold-medal game. Way to go girls!
