Senior Flyers sweep weekend exhibition games with Fort Nelson

Head coach Gerard Dicaire said the game was much closer than Saturday night and was up for grabs throughout.

“They had a chance early in the third off of our power play, Carter [Ryan] had a breakaway so it could have gone either way. You just deal with it as it comes. Horsty didn’t want to play too long in overtime so he decided to score.” he said.

Regardless of playing in just two games up to this point, Dicaire is happy with what he sees with his team especially given that they are a younger squad compared to last year’s group.

“So far yeah. We’ve got a younger squad this year, younger than even last year. We’ve got some of the Huskies up and some new guys into town working here. They seem committed so far but we’ll see how it is on our first road game how many guys show up at five o’clock.” he explained.

Scoring in order for the Flyers were Joey Massingham, Aaron Schepers, Tyler Loney, and Adam Horst.

Contributing with assists were Luke Middleton, Aaron Schepers, Rick Cleaver, Cole Calliou, and Brennan Giroux.

Next for the Flyers is their final exhibition game before the regular season as they’ll take on the Spirit River Rangers at 8:30 p.m. on Friday night.
