Palongayak-Landry is originally from Yellowknife, N.W.T., and Abraham is from Waterhen Lake First Nation, which is near Meadow Lake, Sask.

The couple moved to Saskatoon to pursue post-secondary education, which they plan to focus on before setting a wedding date.

This was also their very first Blades game since moving to the city. Saskatoon beat the Kootenay Ice 4-2.
