AMHERST - The Amherst Ramblers take their perfect 4-0 Maritime Junior A Hockey League record into Amherst Stadium on Saturday night and Sunday afternoon.
Their first test is against the Truro Bearcats.
Then on Sunday, they take on the Pictou County Weeks Crushers.
Truro and Pictou County met last night in New Glasgow.
The Bearcats went into the game with a 3-0 record but are no longer undefeated after losing 4-3 in overtime.
The Weeks Crushers' record stands at 4-1-1-0 in what is still an early season.
The Ramblers are now the only team in the 11-member circuit which has yet to lose a game this season.
One reason for the Ramblers success is Jordan Escott.
Escott rejected overtures from the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League earlier this month and has lighted up the junior A ranks with his touch around the net.
Escott leads the league in scoring with four goals and seven assists.
This weekend, fans will get a look at the newest player to don a Ramblers uniform.
Earlier this week, they acquired 20-year-old Paul Roebothan from the Woodstock Slammers for a third-round draft pick and future considerations.
With the acquisition of Roebothan, the Ramblers now have a 22-man roster, which coach Corey Crocker says opens up the competition within the team and makes players accountable, "every single day."
Roebothan is a six-foot, 196-pound centre from St. John N.L.
He had 20 goals and 24 assists in 57 regular-season games with the Slammers last year.
The puck will drop against Truro at 7 p.m and against the Weeks Crushers at 4 p.m.
