Tri-City (30-7-2-0) returns to action tonight at the Viaero Center as the 1st place team in the USHL’s league standings.

The Storm has collected six of a possible eight points against the Stampede to this point in the season series. Tri-City has posted three consecutive victories over Sioux Falls after dropping the opening game of this year’s nine-game season series on October 23rd, 2021, at the Viaero Center. Tri-City won last year’s season series over Sioux Falls with a head-to-head record of 5-2-1-0. Jeremy Wilmer (3), Dane Dowiak (3), Tanner Adams (2), and Lleyton Roed (2) lead all Storm players with the most goals scored in this year’s season series against the Stampede. Sebastian Wraneschitz is seeking to become the first Storm goaltender to record multiple victories over the Stampede this season following his USHL debut, and first career win, against Sioux Falls on January 21st. The Storm will host the Stampede again tomorrow night at the Viaero Center to complete play in a two-game weekend.

 

Sioux Falls (13-22-3-2) is seeking a bounce-back victory following a 4-3 overtime loss to the Sioux City Musketeers last Saturday at the Denny Sanford PREMIER Center. Daniel Russell, Maddox Fleming, and Sam Harris scored for the Stampede in the loss.
