Next weekend the Sioux Falls Stampede will play their final two games of the year, closing out what was a disatrous season.
The Herd have clinched a last place finish in the Western Conference after starting the year with just five players who had played USHL hockey. With that fact in mind, this year could be looked at as a good learning experience for the young squad, but it doesn't make the losing any easier..
"We gotta keep in mind that the boys are developing and that's always fine and dandy, but losing games and losing a lot of hockey games is not a lot of fun." Stampede Head Coach Kevin Hartzell said, "So you work and you persevere and that's what we've done."
The Herd will take on Sioux City and Tri-City Friday and Saturday respectively in 7pm matchups at the Arena.Follow KDLT Sports at @KDLTSports and KDLT Weekend Sports Anchor Kolbe Nelson at @KolbeNelson for opinions, links, and updates on Twitter.
