The Prince Albert Raiders will waste little time getting reacquainted with the Saskatoon Blades when the 2018-19 WHL season rolls around.
The Raiders released their 2018 pre-season schedule on Wednesday, which includes four tilts with the Blades and one more against the Pats in Regina.
The Blades and Raiders will also continue their annual tradition of holding a game in Warman.
The two clubs kick-off the pre-season on Aug. 30 with a game at the Art Hauser Centre, then meet again at the Art Hauser Centre one week later on Sept. 6. The two teams meet for a third straight time in Warman on Sept. 8.
The Raiders play their lone road game of the pre-season with a trip to Regina on Sept. 14 and finish the season the next night with another home game against the Blades.
Start time for all five games is 7 p.m.
