LETHBRIDGE – It’s a big night for university hockey in Lethbridge.

The Lethbridge Pronghorn men's hockey team will take on their Southern Alberta rival Calgary Dinos tonight at the ENMAX Centre with puck drop set for 7 p.m.

Admission for Thursday night's game is free for University of Lethbridge and Lethbridge College students with a valid ID card, and there will also be free transit to and from the ENMAX Centre from the uLethbridge bus loop.

Game two of home-and-home is Friday night at Father David Bauer Arena in Calgary at 7:00 p.m. 

Following the sweep of the Regina Cougars last weekend, the Pronghorns (7-9-2) have taken a stranglehold of the sixth and final playoff spot in Canada West. 

Entering this week's action and with 10 games to play, the Pronghorns lead the Manitoba Bisons by eight points and the Regina Cougars by nine points.

With a pair of dominating wins, the Pronghorns have also set their sights up the standings, trailing UBC by four points for fifth and MRU by six points for fourth.

Coming off a seven-point weekend, Pronghorns senior forward Justin Valentino vaulted up the Canada West scoring list and is tied for second in conference scoring with seven goals and 14 assists. Valentino has also recorded at least one point in nine of his last 10 games.

Forward Torrin White also had a strong start to 2019 with two goals and three assists last weekend and sits second in Pronghorn scoring with seven goals and six assists in 12 games. He has already set career highs in goals and points this season.

Goaltender Garret Hughson moved into second place in save percentage in Canada West at 0.926% after two solid starts last weekend, and he has faced the second most shots in Canada West at 529.
