Hurricanes This Week

It's been a whirlwind of here, there, and everywhere for the Lethbridge Hurricanes the last two weeks.

From a one game road trip to Saskatoon, then back home to take on Kelowna, the next day to Edmonton, back home again, then two days later to Prince Albert, Brandon, and Moose Jaw and finally back here to southern Alberta. There's been an awful lot of time spent traveling on the bus lately.

The Hurricanes have lost their last two games, both by 6-2 scores in Brandon and Moose Jaw this past weekend. They're back home this week for their final three games at the ENMAX Centre, before the hockey ice gets turned into curling ice for the Ford World Women's Curling Championship in a couple of weeks. On Tuesday (Mar. 6) the Hurricanes will look to exact some revenge of the Moose Jaw Warriors as they visit the ENMAX Centre. Then on the weekend Calgary is in town Friday (Mar. 9) and Medicine Hat will play in Lethbridge for the final time this year on Saturday (Mar. 10). The Hurrianes will hand out their annual player awards prior to that game against the Tigers.

The Hurricanes sit with a record of 26-39-0-1 in 66 games this season. Lethbridge will close out this season with three games on the road next week in Calgary, Red Deer, and Medicine Hat. The Hurricanes are hopeful they'll get back both Brody Sutter and Brady Ramsay at some point this week. Both players have missed the Canes last three games. Sutter has been out with some back problems and Ramsay with an upper body injury.


Fred Jack and I are back LIVE at Average Joe's Sports Bar on 6th Street South Monday night at 6:00 pm (MST). On the program, Hurricanes forward Phil Tot will join us. Gregg Drinnan from the Kamloops Daily News will be on to talk about this season and who he feels might be the favoured teams to win it all this year and in the last segment of the show, James Gallo the radio voice of the Moose Jaw Warriors.



  1. Did I hear right,Philip Tot said he wasnt to sure if Brady Ramsy was returning next year. Ihope thats not so.

    1. At first that's what I thought he said too,then realized he meant the next few games.

  2. No. He was talking about this season. Ramsay isn't going anywhere.

  3. Ramsey is from the EDGE school in Calgary. They're a sports-based school which conforms the athletes schedule to fit their sport schedules. It used to be part of the school I taught in Calgary Academy, but soon became too big and had to move to the their own building. I know the two guys who started EDGE, so it's great to see a graduate playing here! Darren

  4. Daniel Johnston also graduated from the Edge

  5. Good to hear that I heard wrong,Brady is a hard worker. AYDEN

  6. Cool! Didn't know that about Johnston!
