The Bobcats couldn't be happier to be back in Lloydminster.
Due to renovations at the Centennial Civic Centre, the Bobcats began the season with a seven-game road trip.
Head coach Tom Keca said his squad has some catching up to do.
"Ideally, you don't want to start with seven on the road," Keca said.
"We've got a fairly young and inexperienced hockey club.
"So it definitely put us behind the eight-ball a little bit but it's not something that's insurmountable.
The Bobcats (2-6-0-0 prior to last night's home game against Drayton Valley), got a boost last week when d-man Lenny Thunderchild decided to leave the WHL's Portland Winter Hawks to play for his hometown team.
"He's definitely a welcomed addition to our back end," Keca said. "He provides us with a lot of ability and intelligence.
"He's going to help our younger defencemen."
