After nearly a year of waiting, the Lethbridge Hurricanes will hit the ice tonight for their first game of the season. The Canes are taking on the Edmonton Oil Kings. The team has already faced quarantine, a short window of practice, and have patiently waited for this moment to finally arrive.
“The biggest thing is the urgency in this game. There’s not a lot of games compared to a usual season so each game is going to mean that much more,” says head coach, Brent Kisio “it’s kind of exciting from that standpoint where every night is going to be a big, big game”.
The WHL has tested 177 people within the Hurricanes division for COVID-19 without a single positive result.
