In round two, Morgan Rielly, Jordan Wyton and Torrin White didn’t even make the road trip to Medicine Hat for Games 3 and 4.
When the Moose Jaw Warriors head to Edmonton for their Eastern Conference final opener, not only will those three players be on the bus, but they could all be in the line-up.
While the team announced Thursday that Rielly would be back on the ice for Game 1, there’s also a chance that White and Wyton could also be ready to return.
“Hopefully I’ll be back in,” said Wyton who broke his hand a freak accident at practice on Mar. 13. “It’s feeling a lot better. I have a lot more movement in it now.”

White injured his right knee after a knee-on-knee hit from Medicine Hat Tigers star Emerson Etem. He took one abbreviated shift after the hit and recalls his knee didn’t feel good at all. Tests revealed there were no tears, so he’s hoping the long layoff between rounds will help it get better.
“It’s definitely getting better. I think the nine days off is a real good opportunity for it to heal and hopefully it will be 100 per cent for next Friday,” said White who skated Friday for the first time since the injury.
