There were four pre-season games on Friday, when rookie Jacob Herman made 35 saves for the shutout, backstopping Yorkton to a 3-0 win in Melville.  Ryan McCleary, another rookie Swift Current product like Herman, had a pair of goals in the win, while Melville’s Kaleb McEachern made 18/18 saves in half a game.

Jack Lenchyshyn scored in overtime as the Nipawin Hawks beat the Melfort Mustangs 3-2 (OT) at The Cage.  Brodie Girod got the Hawks on the board and Christian Albertson also scored against his former club.
