Four down, one to go.

The Hitmen (2-2) close out their pre-season schedule against the Kootenay ICE (2-3) tonight at 7 p.m. before the two meet again next weekend for a home-and-home series to open up the WHL regular season.

After dropping the first two games of the pre-season, the Hitmen bounced back to win a pair against the Edmonton Oil Kings last weekend.

The ICE head into the match up after they defeated the Lethbridge Hurricanes 8-4 last night, having seen ups and downs reflected by their pre-season record.
