Candice Ward

 

The Calgary Hitmen effectively sewed up the second wild card and final playoff berth in the WHL’s Eastern Conference, knocking off the Kootenay ICE by a 6-1 margin Friday night.

With the win, the Hitmen eliminate the Saskatoon Blades from playoff contention and will take on the first-place Regina Pats, winners of the Scotty Munro Memorial Trophy as WHL Regular Season Champions.

Games 1 and 2 are set for March 24 and 25, respectively, at the Brandt Centre in Regina. The series will then shift to Calgary’s Scotiabank Saddledome for Games 3 and 4 on March 28 and 30, respectively.
