The defending Allan Cup Champion Fort St. John Senior Flyers will open their season this Saturday, Oct. 23, in Grande Prairie against the Athletics.
Flyers General Manager Rob Larsen says that he definitely expects the team to make a run at the Allan Cup again this year. Larsen says they are short a few players at the moment, but the team team should still look strong in the early goings.
Larsen also expects Grande Prairie to be a tough early test for his squad.
