The Wheatland Kings clinched home-ice advantage for the first round of the 2023 playoffs! Their opponent will be the Coaldale Copperheads.

The first playoff game will be on February 16 on home ice at 8:00 p.m., followed by a road trip to Coaldale on the 18 at 8:00 p.m. If necessary, game three will be back at home on the 19 at 6:30 p.m.

The Kings have enjoyed success against Coaldale so far, as their regular season series featured 4 wins and just one loss. However, the Kings won't be overlooking them, as they know that Coaldale is a difficult place to play and that it'll take a full team effort to advance in the playoffs.
