Tuesday night marks the return of Easton Odut to Dauphin.

Playing in his first year with the U18 Wheat Kings, the team comes to town to battle the Parkland Rangers at Credit Union Place. As expected, Easton has put together a tremendous season with Brandon, scoring five times in as many games and he has nine points. When the two teams met earlier this year in Brandon, Odut returned from a suspension to score once in a 6-1 win. Brandon enters Tuesday's game at 8-0 and on top of the league standings.

"It's definitely a game that I have been looking forward to," said Odut. "To get the chance to play in front of my family and friends in my hometown will be exciting."

The Rangers; meanwhile, are looking to get back in the win column. Coming up short in seven of their nine games, Parkland is tied for last in the league with the Norman Northstars heading into the game. While Parkland continues to put forth a great effort each time they hit the ice, they have struggled to put a full 60 minutes together but they will get that chance on Tuesday. Madden Murray paces the Rangers' offence with seven goals and eight points so far while three Rangers have six points, Hayden Seib, Dru Mushumanski and Luke Myhre.

Tuesday's game is the first of six straight on home ice for Parkland as they don't play on the road again until November 12. It's been an extremely road-heavy schedule for Parkland so far as they have played seven of their nine games away from town. 

The game also marks the return of Brady Turko to the region as the McCreary native is also in his first year with the U18 Wheat Kings and he has looked impressive, scoring three times while adding six assists. 

It's also the Rangers' Hockey Fights Cancer night and you're encouraged to wear pink in support.
