Calgary Hitmen Secure Victory Over Swift Current Broncos Before Holiday Break

The Calgary Hitmen dominated their final home game of 2023, clinching a 7-4 victory over the Swift Current Broncos at the Scotiabank Saddledome. The game kicked off with an early Broncos goal by Maddix McCagherty. The Hitmen swiftly retaliated with a trio of goals—Oliver Tulk's milestone 20th of the season, Sean Tschigerl's rapid follow-up, and Wyatt Pisarczyk's WHL debut goal. Despite Tyson Laventure's effort for Swift Current and a shorthanded tally from Carson Wetsch, Calgary maintained a lead throughout.

The Broncos narrowed the gap with Connor Hvidston's power play strike, but Maxim Muranov answered back, bolstering Calgary's advantage. Zach Turner's late-period goal kept hope alive for Swift Current, but it was short-lived as Keets Fawcett and David Adaszynski's empty-netter capped off Calgary's triumph. Muranov, shining with a goal and two assists, earned the first star, while Wetsch, Tschigerl, Tulk, and Ethan Moore also delivered standout multi-point efforts.

This win propels Calgary to a 12-15-3-1 record and sets them up for a well-earned 10-day respite before tackling a five-game road stint through the B.C. Division. Their journey kicks off against the Prince George Cougars on December 28th and continues against the Rockets, Royals, Giants, and Blazers. The Hitmen will then circle back for a seven-game homestand beginning January 7th against the Edmonton Oil Kings.
