Along with a first glimpse of this year’s potential team, fans in attendance will also get a look at the NWJHL’s newest team, the Fairview Flyers, which was voted into the league over the summer.

Friday’s game will be the first of a home-and-home series between the Flyers and the Huskies, with game two taking place in Fairview Saturday, September 15.

Huskies assistant coach Jeremy Clothier, says there somewhat of a level of unfamiliarity with the leagues newest team.

"We know absolutely nothing about them. We know their head coach was over in Germany playing pro and from seeing them play minor hockey, they are going to be big."

The Huskies have been on the ice a few times this week during team practices, giving coaches an opportunity to not only work off some of the players’ off-season rust, but also to evaluate their team.

Final cuts will be made following the scheduled exhibition games, and Clothier says players' performances in these games can determine whether or not they will make their way onto to roster.

When asked to describe the team with one word based on what he’s seen in practice this week, Clothier responded, "committed."

As usual, the game will be held at the dog pound (the North Peace Arena), with the puck scheduled to drop at 8 p.m.
