The Moose Jaw Warriors are gearing up for what could be an exciting season, as they open the 2022-23 Western Hockey League season on Friday. Head coach Mark O'Leary explains how the team is preparing for Friday night.
"I think it's getting right back to our identity," says O'Leary. "We know how Regina plays, they have guys that are willing to work and compete. Obviously, they have Connor [Bedard] and his skill level, anytime he's in the game they have a chance to score goals and win the game. It's going to continue to be about us and us getting to our identity as early as we can come Friday night and bank on our skill that we'll be there in the end if we can win our fair share of races and battles."
