Pre-Game Report presented by | ICE Look to Regain First in the East Division.

GAME PREVIEW:  The ICE and Rebels will meet for the second time this season.  The first meeting between the two clubs took place on November 6th in Winnipeg.  The ICE skated away with a 5-3 victory that night behind a 3 point night from Michal Teply.

The ICE jumped out to a 2-0 lead after one period of play.  The Rebels would get one back early in the second but the ICE would prove to be too much to handle and took that one by a score of 5-3.

The ICE will look to get back in the win column tonight as they have dropped their past two games on home ice which has dropped their record to 6-4-0-0 over the last ten games.  The Rebels played in Brandon a night ago losing 2-1 and moving their record over the last ten games to 4-5-1-0.

The ICE currently sit one point behind the Prince Albert Raiders for first spot in the East Division.

Yesterday before the 4:00PM CST trade deadline in the WHL, the Winnipeg ICE completed a trade for the Rebels captain and Dallas Stars prospect Dawson Barteaux.  Barteaux is expected to make his ICE debut tonight against his former team.

LAST GAME – 4-1 LOSS TO MEDICINE HAT: The Winnipeg ICE faced off against the Medicine Hat Tigers Wednesday evening, hoping to get back into the win column after losing at home against the Prince Albert Raiders last Sunday by a 6-3 score.

The ICE struck for the game’s opening goal 4:38 into the contest on the power play, as Jackson Leppard put away the rebound from a Michal Teply one-timer. The assist gave Teply his first point since returning from the World Junior Championships with Czech Republic. The ICE took a 1-0 lead into the first intermission. The shots were 15-10 in favor of the ICE in the period.

The majority of the second period was scoreless, but Medicine Hat found the net twice in a span of 22 seconds late in the frame to take a 2-1 lead into the second intermission. Lukas Svejkovsky and Jonathan Brinkman scored the goals for the Tigers at 16:49 and 17:11. Shots after two periods were 29-27 in favor of the ICE.

The first half of the third period went by without many chances for either side. Teply did get two glorious in-tight chances to tie the game at two apiece with about seven minutes left, but Garin Bjorklund was up to the task in the blue paint.

Those two saves would prove pivotal, as the Tigers’ Lukas Svejkovsky put home a James Hamblin pass to complete a transition play with 4:25 left on the clock, doubling his team’s lead. 25 seconds later, the Tigers grabbed another goal to put the game away when Cole Sillinger streaked up the middle of the ice and put a shot through Liam Hughes’ five-hole.
