Operation: Hitmen Hockey (The Hockey Spy's Scouting Mission Game 1: Edmonton Oil Kings Vs Calgary Hitmen)


martin jones.jpgOf course the major March Madness event in the sports world is the incomparable NCAA basketball tourney. Hockey's version of March Madness has to be the start of the CHL playoffs!


The Hockey Spy will be attending and scouting Game 1 of the WHL (aka "The Dub") 1st round playoff matchup between the Edmonton Oil Kings and the hometown Calgary Hitmen. I am also attenting Game 2 this coming Sunday.


The 2nd ranked team in the CHL Top 10, the Calgary Hitmen have had a phenomenom year inwhat many thought coming into the season would be a rebuilding year with the loss of some key players like Karl Alzner and Ryan White to name just two. This season, they've amazingly established or broken 22 team records.


HockeyProspect.com gives an excellent breakdown of the Hitmen's season and players to watch for in this series.
