After their two regular season games against the Grande Prairie JDA Kings, the Huskies sit in a three-way tie for last place in the league with 0 points. However, the Huskies have only played two games this season, while their fellow bottom dwellers, Dawson Creek and Beaverlodge, have each played three games.
First on Friday the Huskies host Sexsmith at the North Peace Arena with the game starting at 8pm. On Saturday, Oct 8, the Huskies will mush their way to Sexsmith to take on the Vipers, a team that despite playing twice as many games as the Huskies, only lead the pups by two points in the standings with a 1-3 record.
With a win on Friday and Saturday, the Huskies could improve in the league standings, as both Dawson Creek and Beaverlodge still remain pointless as well. Unfortunately for the Huskies, Dawson Creek and Beaverlodge play each other Saturday night, guaranteeing that one of those teams earns to points in the standings.
A Huskies win would have them move into a three-way tie for second last in the league with Sexsmith and the winner of the Dawson Creek, Beaverlodge game.
The Huskies will have to wait a few more weeks before their next home game, which will take place on Friday, Oct 28 against their rivals, the Dawson Creek Junior Canucks.
