Flyers play 2 more NPHL games this weekend

The Senior Flyers play two more NPHL regular season games this weekend, as they look to extend their 17 game winning streak.

On Friday night, the Flyers take to Fairview. The Kings sit in last place in the NPHL West division, but at 8-9 still have a better record than any team in the East. The teams have already met twice this season. The first was a well-fought 6-2 Flyers win on Nov. 28th in Fairview. The second was a disappointing effort from Fairview, a 16-1 Flyers win Dec. 5th. in FSJ. The Kings were short-benched that night, and played without a couple of their best players, including former NHLer Darren Van Impe. The Kings hope to have a much better effort on Friday – and you can catch the game live on Moose FM – with the pregame show starting at ~8:15pm.

On Saturday night, the Flyers host Valleyview at the North Peace Arena. At 6-11-1, the Jets sit in 9th place out of 10 teams in the league, and lost 10-0 when Fort St. John made the trip to Valleyview on Jan 3rd.
The Flyers and Fort St. John Minor Hockey have announced admission to Saturday night’s game will be free of charge to all minor hockey players. In honour of Minor Hockey Week in BC, free admission will go to all young players – provided they wear their own House or Rep. jerseys.
