The road trip will also hurt the Huskies bench, as defencemen Cash Brinkworth and Brandon Smith will miss the trip, while Kole Norris is still questionable after suffering a concussion a week ago in Peace River. On the upside, Tyson Pederson will check back into the lineup, after more than two months on the injury shelf.

The Huskies won all 5 matchups against the Wolves in the regular season, 3 of them blowouts, and 2 of them close games.

Now that it really matters, the pups will look to continue their recent fine play, which saw them win 8 of their last 11 games, losing to only Whitecourt, and clinching second spot in the NWJHL.

This weekend’s games go at 8:30 on Friday night, at 7:30 on Saturday, live on Moose FM.
