Huskies set for final weekend of regular season, first place up for grabs


FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Fort St. John Huskies are set for their final two games of the NWJHL regular season this weekend.

The Huskies are coming off an 11-2 win over the Beaverlodge Blades on Wednesday night, a game they had to win to keep their aspirations of finishing first in the standings alive.

A win over both the Dawson Creek Junior Canucks and Sexsmith Vipers on the weekend would secure first overall for the Pups and give them a first-round playoffs bye. However, a loss and two wins by the North Peace Navigators would drop the Huskies into the two seed and a first-round date with the Blades. The Navigators currently have 51 points while the Huskies have 52, both teams have a pair of games remaining.

“Tomorrow I would have to say is probably the biggest game of the year to date,” said General Manager Jeremy Clothier. “If the guys aren’t ready for that one I would be shocked.”

Friday night’s clash with the Jr. Canucks in Dawson Creek and Saturday’s date with the Sexsmith Vipers at the North Peace Arena get underway at 8:00 p.m.
