Huskies ready for Kings/Flyers in semi-final clash


FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Fort St. John Huskies are awaiting their opponent in the second round of the NWJHL playoffs.

Currently, The Grande Prairie JDA Kings and Fairview Flyers are deadlocked at 2-2 as they head into the deciding game tonight. The Kings took Game 4 by the score of 2-0 on Wednesday evening. The winner advances to the best-of-seven semi-final versus the Huskies, who will have home-ice advantage.

“I think both teams that we have to face are quite similar,” said General Manager Jeremy Clothier. “They both play a physical, hard-nosed game. Whoever we play we have to be ready to get into the trenches. It’s going to be a war.”

Meanwhile, the North Peace Navigators and Dawson Creek Jr. Canucks both swept their opening round match-ups and are set to do battle in the other semi-final.

Second round action for the Pups is expected to begin as early as Saturday at the North Peace Arena.
