Stars host Augustana Tonight!!

It’s game day in the Battlefords. The North Stars host the Augustana Vikings of the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference. Tonight will be the North Stars third preseason game so far, they are 1-1, and their only home game before the regular season starts next week.

The Vikings have former North Star Boyd Wakelin in the lineup as well as former North Star coach Blaine Gusdal behind the bench. Wakelin is a Battleford native who played 160 regular season and playoff games with the North Stars and is still a fan favourite for his physical, hustling style of play and his clutch goals.

These two teams met last week in Camrose with the Vikings taking the game 5-2. The Stars got goals in that game from Robin Carlson and Blake Young. I didn’t see that game but I did see the North Stars game in Wainwright against the Kindersley Klippers on Saturday. I think fans will be excited to see what this year’s team is starting to look like.

Puck drops tonight at 7:30 at the Civic Center.

And hey, while you are at the Civic Center you can pick up your season tickets. They are ready to be printed and picked up. Call the North Stars office at 445 – S-T-A-R to make arrangements or you can pick up you tickets during tonight’s game. Also, tickets will be available for pickup on Tuesday September 17th between 7 and 8:30pm, also at the Civic Center.

Also I wanted to mention the fact that the North Stars have a new office/marketing manager in Trent Cey. One thing I have noticed since the change is that there seems to be more content on the North Stars website. Check out this story on some of the North Stars experiences in Wainwright. I know Trent is a great writer from his time at the local paper and I am excited to see that is going to continue to be a great hub of information.
