Huskies kick off the regular season tonight in Fort St. John

Last year the Huskies took on the Wheelers five times, beating them in three those games.

Not only will Saturday’s game be the team’s home opener, it will also give the home fans an opportunity to meet the new Huskies squad, as this will be the first time the new team hits the ice after completing their tryouts.

Assistant Coach Jeremy Clothier talked about the team’s identity for the upcoming season. Clothier said this year’s squad is the fastest he’s seen in a while, and will try to use that speed to its advantage. The team will put lots of focus on setting a fast pace for their opponents, as well as using their speed for quick neutral zone transitions.

The Huskies regular season home opener will be taking place at the North Peace Arena. Puck drops at 8 p.m.
