The Estevan Bruins came oh so close to going all the way in 2017-18, falling in game seven to the Nipawin Hawks in the SJHL finals. Now their cast of returning players has unfinished business, and you can hear their pursuit of the ultimate goal only on your home of the Bruins, Estevan's Rock Radio!
Rock 106 will carry 32 Estevan Bruins regular season games on air this year, with two home contests, two showcase games, and 28 road contests. Rob Mahon will be the voice of the Bruins again, returning for his second year behind the mic.
