No rest on the horizon as the Winterhawks have busy weekends coming up.
2023 gets off to a hectic start for the Saugeen Shores Winterhawks, who will play three games this weekend, two of them at home.
Their Bruce County rivals the Ripley Wolves will no doubt be looking to avenge the 5-1 loss
the Winterhawks handed them on their home ice back in December, as the two teams hook up on Friday night (January 6th) at The Plex at 8:30 p.m.
It will be just the beginning, as the Winterhawks hit the road on Saturday down Highway 10 to visit the Shelburne Muskies at 8:00 p.m.
They'll turn around and head back home for a Sunday early evening game against the Minto 81's at 6:30 p.m. at The Plex.
That game will be Minor Hockey Night, with the Winterhawks challenging Saugeen Shores Storm teams to come out and show their team spirit for a chance to win a practice with Winterhawks players later this season.
Teams who are playing on Sunday and unable to attend can still enter by recording a video and sending it to us either via social media DM, or at [email protected]
Also looming is the WOAA Sr. Hockey League's playoff roster deadline. All teams are required to submit 26-player rosters (23 skaters, 3 goalies) by January 10th.
The Winterhawks are currently carrying 31 players on the roster after re-signing the club's all-time leading scorer Brent MacDermid
Players must dress for at least five games during the regular season in order to be eligible to compete in playoff games.
The following weekend, the Winterhawks have two games scheduled, hosting the Shallow Lake Crushers on January 13th, followed by a trip to visit the Durham Thundercats on January 14th.
The Winterhawks continue to work with the WOAA and the Shelburne Muskies to find a solution to reschedule the home game that was postponed on December 23rd due to the pre-Christmas blizzard.
