FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Fort St. John Flyers are back in NPHL action tonight as they travel to Dawson Creek.

The team is coming off an overtime defeat at the hands of the Senior Canucks that knocked them out of Coy Cup contention last Thursday.

The Flyers could be working with a short bench tonight according to their General Manager.  “Not sure who we have available for the game because of injuries and work,” said Lee Hartman. “I hope it’s as good as last weeks game.”

With three games remaining to conclude the regular season the team will be preparing for the playoffs as every team in the Western Division will make the post-season which begins on January 30th. Playoffs will consist of each team playing eight games in a round robin style format, followed by the second and third-placed teams meeting in a clash with the winner advancing to play the top-seeded team for the chance to represent the West in the finals.

Tonight’s clash versus the Sr. Canucks gets underway at 8:30 p.m.
