Earning back-to-back wins on the weekend against Eastern Washington, assistant coach Tom Spencer was pleased with SFU Men’s Hockey’s effort over the weekend.
“Right now, [the] guys are confident and we wanted to make sure we executed regardless of who the opponent was,” he said. “We wanted to make sure they brought their a-game and stay on task, execute what we worked on in practice and we thought we did a real good job of that.”
This Friday, the Clan will take on the Trinity Western Spartans in the last game of a nearly month long road stretch.
Defenceman Zack Klebaum and Forward Sam Chatterley, who were injured in Saturday’s game and didn’t play Sunday, are day-to-day. Forward Jesse Mysiorek, who didn’t play either game on the weekend, is day-to-day. Defenceman Nick Coltura is also listed as day-to-day.
Forward Tyler Basham, who has missed the last five games with a shoulder injury, has been making good progress. However, he is questionable for Friday’s game.
“Tyler looked good [yesterday] in practice,” said Spencer. “[But] definitely a thing we don’t want to rush back. He says he feels great, but we want to make sure the doctor gives him the green light. I think it’s more looking to the long term gain as opposed to the short term solution. We don’t want to put him in a situation where he gets hurt real quick right coming back again.”
