Turns out they pretty much sold out season tix day 1.

State of the Art. Wow

Never seen penalty box and players benches on same side before. Maybe not so unusual in minor leagues?

Savoie is the older brother of highly-touted prospect Matthew Savoie, who is eligible for the 2019 WHL Bantam Draft.

Time for Winnipeg Ice Thread?

What's interesting about the Savoie trade is that both brothers are committed to NCAA right now, but there's buzz that they might change their minds and play together in Winnipeg, as the Ice have the 1st overall pick and will most certainly be taking Matthew...

NOT eligible and won't be playing in the WHL by the sounds of things. Or, the Ice would be taking him first overall. 

 

We have an Ice thread.
