With two games left in the regular season, the SFU Men’s Hockey Team will have a chance to lock up first place in a back-to-back against Trinity Western. Just one point this weekend would prevent the Spartans from tying SFU for first at 36 points.
“The team needs to be focused and has to understand we haven’t locked up first place yet, and take the opportunity to get prepped for the playoffs,” said assistant coach Tom Spencer.
“It’s always an edgy game when we play Trinity, on both sides,” said Spencer. “We need to understand what we’ve done and accomplished this year, and use that to our advantage. We’ve played some really good hockey.”
Two closing wins would give SFU some much needed momentum before the playoffs, as they look to win their first BCIHL Championship since 2011.
After missing players including Sam Chatterley, Jayden Piattelli, and Daniell Lange in their last game due to injury, SFU is expected to have a mostly healthy roster.
However, Tyler Basham is not likely to play this weekend. Scott Patterson is day-to-day, and is questionable for the weekend.
