In the hunt for their second-straight WHL Western Conference championship, the Portland Winterhawks summon roars from hockey fans with supersonic skating, board-rattling hits, and electrifying goals. Led by points machine Sven Bartschi, the Winterhawks boast a polished roster that spotlights eight NHL draft picks, which affords fans a sneak peek at future stars before they glide onto the national stage or sign lucrative contracts to play on the moon. Smooth-skating Joe Morrow anchors the squad’s rally-snuffing defense, and goaltender Mac Carruth slows down all net-bound projectiles with a splash of maple syrup. Fans can absorb one of two hard-hitting matchups against contentious conference rivals. As an added bonus, the December 2 contest includes a postgame ham shoot, where women aged 18 and older have the opportunity to score a goal or stop a ferocious slap-shot to win a free ham.
