BRYAN WILSON – 02.13.2024

The Wranglers host the Manitoba Moose at the Scotiabank Saddledome on Tuesday night in search of a much needed ‘W’.

Calgary (24-16-3-1) is coming off back-to-back losses against the San Diego Gulls over the weekend, which slid them down to fourth in the Pacific Division (52 Pts.) and now have four teams behind them in the standings that are currently within striking distance.

Points are at a premium and the pressure is on for this midweek matchup with the Moose, which kicks off tonight.

Puck drop: 7pm MST.
