The Fort St. John Huskies have themselves a very important upcoming game.

Wednesday, the Huskies will welcome the Dawson Creek Junior Canucks, in a battle for fourth place in the NWJHL.

The Huskies and Junior Canucks are tied in their season series. They have played each other four times, with each team winning two of those games.

The Junior Canucks currently occupy the fourth place spot in the standings with 25 points. The Huskies sit in fifth place with 24 points.

With a win, The Huskies will leap frog the Junior Canucks for fourth place.

The Huskies had two opportunities to accomplish this over the weekend, but lost both of their games, preventing the jump from occurring. However, the Huskies were struggling with injuries over the weekend, which severely limited their bench.

Hopefully the home town crowd will provide the support the Huskies need and the injury bug rids itself from Fort St. John’s bench.

Puck drops at 8 p.m. at the North Peace Arena.
