The Midget AAA Rangers are looking to get back in the win column with their biggest game of the young season.
On Thursday night (October 12), the Fort Saskatchewan Midget AAA Rangers will be hosting the Canadian Women's Olympic Team at the JRC.
So far the season, the Rangers are 1-3 and coming off a 7-0 loss against to the Knights of Columbus Pats.
This will count as a regular season game as the Canadian club is playing against each team in the AMHL (and currently sit at 1-1 on the season).
"The weekend wasn't a weekend that we want to remember so we just need to move forward, take it in stride and really learn from it," said head coach Chris Budnick. "One of our goals is to have team defense and I think we really let our goaltenders down."
Midget first-year Jacob Boucher is leading the way for the Rangers with four points this season, while Alex Thacker leads the way in the goal department with three.
Sebastian Cossa and Jacob Bennett have split time in goal so far this season, Bennett has posted a 0.914 SV% and a 3.00 GAA.
"If we don't skate, they're going to skate us to the ground," added Budnick.
The Canadian Women's Olympic Team roster boasts a couple of nearby players including Meghan Mikkelson of St Albert and Shannon Szabados from Edmonton.
Plenty of pre-game activities will be taking place at the JRC starting around 5:30 p.m. Puck drop is at 7:00 p.m.
