It won’t be an easy start to the weekend, as the Huskies kick off their weekend with a Friday evening game against the Grande Prairie JDA Kings, a team that is currently dominating the North West Junior Hockey League.
The pups will need to make sure their defence is sharp as they travel to the home arena of the team currently occupying first place in the league standings, boasting an impressive 5-0-0 record.
Even more impressive is their offensive production, as the team has scored an astonishing 47 goals-for in just five games, while only allowing seven to be scored on them.
Leading the JDA Kings, as well as the league offensively is Corey Wamsteeker, who in just five games played, has already scored 8 goals and dished out nine assists for total points tally of 17.
The Huskies won’t have long to recover from Friday’s game, as the team will get right back to it on home ice Saturday, welcoming the Slave Lake Wolves to Fort St. John for the first time this season.
Slave Lake currently occupies third in the league standings, showing a record of 2-1-0, having scored nine goals in those three games, while allowing a league-low seven to be scored on them.
Focusing on the Huskies, the team sits in last place in the league standings, sitting at 0-2-0, having scored seven goals in those two games, while allowing nine.
It should be a tough weekend for the Huskies, who will be looking to capture their first win of the regular season.
Saturday’s home game will be held at the North Peace Arena. The puck drops at 8 p.m.
