Team general manager Vince Pedersen said the players had a great time on the ice as well and was appreciative of the support from the community for the event.

“It was fantastic tonight. This is the biggest turnout we’ve had in years and years. The kids loved it and the players had a great time. They worked up a sweat tonight with all these little guys,” he explained. “It means a lot. It should mean a lot to everybody on this team. The kids they come out more and more and they want to come out and watch. It gives us great support.”

The Huskies will now turn their focus to their game tonight against the Beaverlodge Blades. Beaverlodge comes to Fort St. John still looking for their first win of the NWJHL season but assistant coach Todd Alexander is making sure the players aren’t taking the game for granted.

“You’ve still got to play the hockey game and anything can happen on any night. Sometimes you have a bad night and it doesn’t matter so that’s why we’ve got to play the games,” he said. Our focus is to start the game strong and to go from there and dictate the pace. We’re not worried too much about who we’re playing or where they are in the standings. You can even have a look back at Thursday night there and there was a huge upset in the NFL. It happens in all levels and all kinds of sport. That’s the beauty of sport.”

Opening faceoff tonight at the North Peace Arena is slated for 8 p.m.
