The Comets are currently sitting on 4 points in the league, while the Wild are still in search of their first win. Their last meeting resulted in a 5-3 victory for the Comets, making this rematch an important one for Domenico De Simone’s young team to chalk up some points on home ice.
Following that, Edinburgh Capitals will play their first SNL game of this season as they face Kilmarnock Thunder.

This is the first of two games for the Capitals this weekend, and they will be eager to secure a win and accumulate valuable points whilst Thunder will be digging deep to hold on to pole position.
In another exciting matchup, Dundee Tigers will face off against the Aberdeen Lynx. Lynx, last season’s league champions, will make the short journey south to face the Tigers in a double-point game. Both teams currently have 4 points, with the Tigers having played four games compared to the Lynx’s three. This clash promises to be a fierce battle between the two big cats.
The hockey action continues on Sunday as Paisley Pirates host North Ayrshire Wild at the Braehead arena. This matchup will see the young Wild team facing the experienced Pirates.
