Trackers hitting the road for tournament in Prince George

PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. – The Northeast BC/Yukon Trackers are on the road this weekend for a tournament in Prince George, and will be lacking one of their key players.

Trackers coach David Johnston says that Connor Bowie will not be in the line-up this weekend, after getting called up to play with the WHL’s Portland Winterhawks. Bowie has the second-most points playing for the Trackers this season with 14, behind Aiden Craig-Steele. Johnston says that Cayden Frenett has been brought up from Fort St. John’s Tier 2 Midget team in Bowie’s place, but that the team’s game won’t need to be tweaked too much.

Johnston added that the Trackers will need to change their game a bit when it comes to puck movement, as the tournament will be played on an Olympic-sized rink, which is 15 feet wider than the ice sheets at the Pomeroy Sports Centre.
