WESTERN CANADA JUNIOR HOCKEY LEAGUE SCHEDULE

During the off season several of the team franchises were moved. Calgary Centennials hired general-manager Bob Strumm, former Saskatoon Star-Phoenix sports writer. Owner Dick Koentges moved the franchise to Billings, Montana. He hired Dave king as the coach. Renamed the club the Bighorns and played in the brand new 8,600 seat Yellowstone Metra Arena.

Gerry Brisson transferred Winnipeg Monarchs to Calgary, where they were renamed the Wranglers. The majority owner Enhrain Strinke was not satisfied with the local arena and moved the Kamloopss franchise to Seattle and renamed the team the Breakers.

Before 4,200 observers, Regina Pats played their premier hockey game in the new Agridome, Sunday, October 2, against the Saskatoon Blades.
