Much like week one of the pre season, week two will have the Huskies take part in a home-and-home series, this time with Dawson Creek.
Game one will take place at the North Peace Arena, while game two will go down at the Dawson Creek Memorial Arena.
Huskies Assistant Coach Jeremy Clothier says this weekend’s focus will be within the team’s own zone.
“We are working hard at defensive zone positioning. Our focus is just on some of the systems that were practicing.”
Clothier says he’s confident production of offence isn’t an issue with his team, but this season the team will focus on reducing the goals-against.
Thursday’s game will also give the Fort St. John faithful an opportunity to support two different types of pups: the Fort St. John Huskies, along with the city’s SPCA.
The Huskies organization will donate all the funds raised through gate admissions to the SPCA North Peace Branch.
Thursday’s game will also provide Fort St. John an opportunity to watch a few new players on the team, as some new bodies will be hitting the ice for Fort St. John, trying to earn a roster spot.
The team will also be looking for their first pre-season victory after being swept in a home-and-home series with the Fairview Flyers last weekend.
Tomorrow’s game begins at 8 p.m.
