It was the only Game 7 of the first round of the 2020 AJHL playoffs. While the usual drama of a game 7 was gone by the 2nd period, the drama that unfolded after the game was unprecedented as the rest of the playoffs were cancelled due COVID-19. At the time the game was on, no one knew it would be the final game of the 2019-20 AJHL season. Listen to the game here.
It had been thirteen straight losses against the defending National Junior 'A' champion, Brooks Bandits coming into the game at Encana Arena.

The Kodiaks came into the game riding a 7-game losing streak which had begun on September 20th with a 2-1 shoot-out loss to the Okotoks Oilers at Encana Arena.

The Kodiaks hosted the Fort McMurray Oil Barons in Game 7 of the AJHL Championship Series. It was a full house at Edgeworth Centre with over 3,000 fans in attendance to watch the deciding game.

Another classic "Battle of the Bears" in Olds. A banged-up Kodiaks' team went into the game against the Grizzlys without both of their 20 year-old co-captains, Nolan Marshall and Jonathan Lashyn.
