The Fort St. John Senior Flyers wrapped up their exhibition schedule yesterday against the Fort Nelson Yeti. After the Flyers came away with a win in the first game on Saturday, they improved upon their play on the ice and it resulted in a 7-1 victory.

Head coach Andrew Leriger said the big difference in the two games was a willingness to put the puck on the net.

“They shot the puck. Yesterday we were a little tight on the stick and dishing it off when we should have shot. To get 35-40 shots a game, we’re going to score goals,” he said

Rick Cleaver had himself a solid game with a hat trick. Leriger said when he’s at the top of his game, he’s a key contributor for the hockey club.

“Last year he was working the oil patch and missed a lot of games. It’s hard to get in a rhythm when you’re missing every other game. Now he’s got a job in town, he’s in shape. When he’s in shape and shooting the puck the way he is, he’s a plus,” he said.

Fort St. John will officially open the North Peace Hockey League season on Saturday night when they host the Manning Comets.
