The weekend begins Friday night in Beaverlodge, where the Huskies will play a significant game against the Blades when looking at the league standings. Beaverlodge only trails the Huskies, who sit tied for sixth with Sexsmith, by two points. A win for the Blades would create a three way tie for sixth place in the standings.
Friday’s meeting will be the third of the season between the Huskies and the Blades, who first met in Beaverlodge October 20, when the Huskies earned an 8-6 road win.
The pups won their second straight game versus the Blades on November 10 in Fort St. John, when the Huskies earned an 8-5 win at the North Peace Arena.
Fort St. John’s busy weekend on the road continues Saturday evening in Dawson Creek, where the Huskies will play the Jr. Canucks for just the second time this season. The teams first met back at the beginning of October, when the Huskies lost 4-3 at home.
Both games begin at 8 p.m. and can be heard live on 100.1 Moose FM. Don’t forget to listen to the informative Moose FM pre-game show.

In addition to playing two road games this weekend, the Huskies will be on the North Peace Arena ice Sunday, and are inviting fans to join them. This Sunday, the Huskies are hosting their annual Skate with the Huskies event, running from 1-3 p.m. and are inviting all fans who want to hit the ice with the favourite Huskies players for free.
Helmets and skates are the only equipment required, as the Huskies will provide the rest. Organizers are asking those planning to attend to refrain from bringing hockey sticks.
