On this episode of Crusaders Pre Game, hosts Zach Marks and Dawson Petryshen have a look at the weekend that saw Sherwood Park fall to the Spruce Grove Saints in back to back games to start the regular season. Rookies Ryan Arnold and Josh Rule got themselves on the score sheet for the first time, and goaltender Gus Bylin made nearly 80 saves, starting both games over the weekend.
Dawson spoke with Ty Hurley, another rookie, on what playing in the AJHL is like, and adapting his game to the next level. Also on the show, a preview of the matchup between the Crusaders and tonight’s opponent, the Drayton Valley Thunder. New captain Blake Sydlowski highlights what the team needs to do to come out with a win, and talks about the eight game road trip that lies ahead of them.
Sherwood Park faces a tall task, but the group is confident that they have the skills and mentality to come out on top.
