FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Fort St. John Huskies full second round NWJHL playoff schedule was released over the weekend.
The Huskies hold a 1-0 lead in the best-of-seven series after sneaking past the Grande Prairie JDA Kings 7-5 on Saturday night.

Over in the other semifinals, the North Peace Navigators hold a 2-0 series lead over the Dawson Creek Jr. Canucks after 4-2 and 6-4 victories over the weekend.
