The game will mark the second meeting of the two neighbouring teams this season, with Fort St. John looking to even the season series, as they suffered a 5-3 home loss to the Canucks back on Dec.10, 2011.
The team won't have much time to rest, as they will get right back at it Friday, Jan.27, when they are back at the comforts of the North Peace Arena, where they will play host to the Hythe Mustangs.
Friday’s matchup with the Mustangs will be the lone meeting between the two clubs this season.
Hythe will enter the game with a record of 4-10-0, recording 8 points in 14 games played. The Flyers will enter the two-game weekend with a record of 2-4-1, earning 5 points in their seven games played.
Despite entering the weekend with a goals-against-average of 4.7, one area that the Flyers have excelled at this year is their penalty kill. Currently, the Flyers boast an impressive penalty kill rate of 81.5 per cent. Out of 38 penalty kill attempts, the team has only allowed 7 goals while down a man.
Friday’s home game against Hythe will begin at 8:30 p.m.
