The fact that the Medicine Hat Cubs are the last remaining undefeated team in the HJHL doesn't phase Gens Head Coach Kurtis Jones.
Actually, he's enjoying the stiff competition offered by the south division teams of the HJHL.
"For me, from the league standpoint and the general manager side, I'm really happy that every team in the south is working to be a better team and offering better competition," says Jones. "It's great."
Last weekend, the Gens went into overtime twice. At home, they beat the Coaldale Copperheads, 5-4. In Strathmore, they lost to the Wheatland Kings, 3-2.
Tonight, the Gens are in Medicine Hat before hosting the Sylvan Lake Wranglers, the top team in the north, on Saturday.
The season is just seven games old, and Jones isn't too concerned about the standings, or that the Cubs are sitting undefeated.
"It's a good test for us, and I'm not overly concerned. We're still pretty early in the season. Yeah, those teams are at the top right now, but it's game seven, it's not game 25. We'll see where they are after game 25."
It's an 8:15 p.m. start on Saturday against the Wranglers in the second game of a doubleheader of junior hockey at Totem One.
At 5 p.m. on Saturday, the Cochrane Chaos junior female team host the Lethbridge Eagles.
