Tyler Wirth made his Junior Hockey Debut this weekend with the Strathmore Wheatland Kings in Alberta’s Heritage Junior “B”Hockey League, and the 6’2” 181 pound forward did not disappointed as he netted his first goal of his junior career on Friday in a 4-2 loss to Okotoks.
“It feels good to get the first one out of the way and I can just keep building off that,” said Wirth. “Getting the first goal in the league really boosts my confidence, and I hope to carry that into the upcoming games.”
The Wheatland Kings faced Okotoks again on Saturday and kept with them in regulation, ultimately losing 3-2 in OT. Wirth and the Wheatland Kings will now prepare for their next games against Stettler and Red Deer this coming weekend.
