For one University of Lethbridge Pronghorn's Hockey player, this National tournament means more to him than what happens on the ice. For Sam McKechnie, Pronghorns pride is generational.
"It's definitely, I guess you could say in my blood. You know, my sister went to U of L and I'm really looking forward to playing at (The ENMAX centre) on Thursday."
The last time the Lethbridge Pronghorns won a national Championship was in 1994. Sam McKechnie's father was on that team.
