Mr. Speaker, the Swift Current Broncos has a remarkable history, a history of great success and tremendous challenge. A successful junior A franchise in the smallest Western Hockey League city requires a huge community effort, and this year that commitment was there. With a record-setting year for attendance, an improvement of 18,000 fans from last year, all of southwest Saskatchewan is supporting our team. It is for good reason.
The Broncos are rated number four in the country and have recorded the most points in a season since they won the Memorial Cup in 1989. They finished second in the WHL and are moving into the first round of the playoffs against the Regina Pats, a team that wants to win because it is this year's host of the Memorial Cup.
The hard hitting, fast skating Broncos are on their way, led by their captain, Glenn Gawdin and goalie Stuart Skinner.
Swift Current and area will be decked out in blue and green as the Swift Current Broncos begin the road to another Memorial Cup. Go Broncos go.
