Eastern Conference Championship Rematch TONIGHT
Edmonton, AB - The Oil Kings are back in action Friday night as they welcome the Moose Jaw Warriors to the City of Champions for a rematch of the 2012 WHL Eastern Conference Championship series. It will be the Warriors first game at Rexall Place since the Oil Kings 4-1 Game 5 win last season. Eastern Conference Championship MVP Laurent Brossoit posted a 37 save performance that night to give the Oil Kings a 4-1 series win. It was the first Eastern Conference title in the modern era of the franchise.
The Warriors defense is led by smooth skating Morgan Rielly who was selected fifth overall by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the 2012 NHL entry draft. Rielly was selected just one pick behind Oil Kings Captain Griffin Reinhart who was chosen fourth overall by the New York Islanders.
The Oil Kings posted a 3-0-0-1 record against the Warriors during the 2011-12 regular season. All time the Kings have a 7-4-2-3 regular season record vs Moose Jaw and a 5-1-1-1 regular season record at Rexall Place against the tribe.
