The El Paso Rhinos are looking to get back on track in their highly competitive division in the Western States Hockey League this weekend.
The Rhinos will take on the Tulsa Jr. Oilers in a WSHL Mid-Western Division three-game home series at the El Paso County Coliseum Events Center, 4100 E. Paisano. The games are set for 7:30 p.m. tonight and Saturday, Feb. 24-25, and 4:30 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 26.
El Paso, 32-11, is in third place in the Mid-Western Division, after losing three straight to league-leader Oklahoma City. The Rhinos have been guided by forwards Chaseton Sare, with 37 goals and 87 points, and Alex Johanson with 37 goals and 76 points.
Tulsa, 13-32 and in fifth place, looks to forward Bogden Shleev and his 25 goals and 47 points.
