After capping off their second win in as many nights, the Richardson Pioneer Weyburn Red Wings invited fans in attendance to join them on the ice for a skate. Dozens of kids of all ages took part in the skate, getting autographs, playing tag, and getting to know the players.
“It’s nice giving to the kids, skating with them,” said Red Wing forward Nik Sombrowski during the skate. “Obviously they look up to us, so getting out here with them makes our day, and it’s a great time.”
“It was good, even though I fell on my bum,” said four-year-old Scarlett, who made sure to get photos with her favourite players.
“First time I've ever done this, so it’s pretty sweet just to be involved with the community,” added Kirk Mullen, who played in his first game with the Red Wings Saturday.
The Wings will be back in action Monday night when they host the La Ronge Ice Wolves at Crescent Point Place. The puck drops on the game at 7:30 p.m.
