Busy Saturday

While the Broncos prepare for an mid - afternoon departure to Edmonton to play the Oil Kings tonight, WHL General Managers are putting it in overdrive with the trade deadline less than 28 hours away.

Nothing to report on the Broncos front although as reported earlier the team does have their hands in a few things around the league.

Broncos Trainer Jaime Leblanc has been around a few trade deadlines in his day. The sewing machine was packed just in case he had to do up some new name bars/numbers this weekend.

There's a lot of speculation out there across the league. Edmonton Oil Kings General Manager Bob Green will be a pre-game show guest as we go to air at 7:30pm tonight on the Eagle 94.1 FM.

The Broncos enter tonight's game winners of 5 of their last 6. While the Oil Kings have dropped six-in-a-row. The Oil Kings are 2-1 against the Broncos this season. This is the fourth and final meeting.

The wins you enjoy the most are the ones you seemingly pull out of mid-air. Last night the Broncos were by no means sharp for two periods. They flipped the switch in the third to rally back to force overtime and then the eventual shootout win.

Lots of parents and family following the Broncos this weekend. Red Deer is a nice central point for the Alberta families. Earl's last night was stuffed post-game.

More tonight from Edmonton.....
