It’s the only meeting of the season, as last year Moose Jaw won 4-3 in a shoot out in Victoria, and the Royals fell 2-0 to the Warriors the year prior.
Moose Jaw suffered a 6-1 loss to Medicine Hat Saturday in Alberta, but won in Lethbridge 4-2 Friday.

Moose Jaw is led in scoring by top prospect Brayden Point with 26 goals and 37 assists for 63 points. He won Gold at the U-18 this past summer with Royals Joe Hicketts.
Monday’s matinee will be the first and only time this season that Travis Brown will square off against his former team. Brown was selected by the Warriors in the 4th round, 76th overall, in the 2009 WHL Bantam Draft. He played three and half seasons for the tribe; he played in 182 games, he had 25 goals, and 109 points. Brown led the Warriors defence in scoring in his rookie season, 2011-2012, and was part of the team that went to the 2012 Eastern Conference Final.
After Victoria plays Monday in Moose Jaw, they’ll travel to Brandon for a Wednesday game, then Regina and Saskatoon before travelling back to the Island. Then they’ll play a pair in Prince George before their next home date March 7th and 8th against Kamloops.
