If Canmore can secure a win (or a tie), they will clinch fifth-place in the Southern Division standings and will meet the fourth-place Drumheller Dragons in the first-round of the upcoming AJHL playoffs.
2) CHEER ON GRADUATING PLAYERS – Friday’s game will be the last regular season home game EVER for six 20-year-old Canmore Eagle players who will all be graduating from Junior Hockey at the conclusion of the season.

These boys deserve some appreciation for all their hard work both on the ice, and in the community, over the years representing the Eagles.
