Melville ends their Pre-season with a 4-2 record and they begin their regular season on opening night on Thursday at home to the Estevan Bruins. Pre-game show 7:20, Play by Play 7:30 on GX94
While the Way Way Wolverines finish their preseason with a 2-4 record and will open their regular season at home on Friday against the defending MJHL champion Portage Terriers.

**Thoughts From the Box**
*Wolves 20 year old goalie Cory Simons who was outstanding tonight and kept his team in it late in the game.
*Wolves will have a young defense core, but '94 born Matt Miller looks like he can help fill that void, smooth skating dman led a few nice rushes and even scored.
*Lucas Froese, 20 year old vet for the Mils had yet another strong game for the Mils, it shows how much he worked hard in the summer and could be a dark horse for SJ scoring lead
*Entertaining hockey game as both sides gear up for the start of regular season and both teams look close to that shape.
Elsewhere, Swan won their 6th game of the preseason defeating the Virden Oil Capitals 3-2.
