FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Northeast B.C./Yukon Trackers are looking to remain atop the Bouchier Division standings with a win over the visiting Grande Prairie Athletic Storm on Sunday.

The team is coming off a one-goal victory over the Fort Saskatchewan Rangers last weekend to remain one point up on the second place Peace River Royals, with one game in hand. The team trailed the Royals by 12 points at the Christmas break, but are riding an 8-1-1 hot streak since the calendar turned to 2018, to take possession of first place.

“The focus for use against Grande Prairie Sunday is playing a mentally and physically sound hockey game,” said head coach Gerard Dicaire. “Playing a full sixty minutes of hockey the right way, use our speed and get pucks and traffic to the net while limited our turnovers and having a good transition game.”

Sunday’s date with the Storm will take place at the North Peace Arena. Puck drop is at 11:00 a.m.
