The two-game weekend begins with a tilt versus the Fairview Flyers, who enter the weekend ranked third in the league standings with a record of 14-15-0-4, an impressive feat considering it’s the team's first year in the league.
It’s also a team the Huskies have had some trouble with this season, having played the Flyers four times entering the weekend, with the Flyers winning three of the four meetings. However, the Huskies took the most recent meeting back on November 12, a 6-5 shootout victory in Fairview.
Every game has been close between the two teams, as all four games have been decided by a single goal.
Next on the schedule, the Huskies wrap up the season in Peace River with a tilt against the Navigators, the league's second place team, who enters the weekend with a record of 27-5-0-1.
Much like their record against the Flyers, the Huskies have played the Navigators four times going into the weekend, and enter the tilt only having won one of four meetings this season.
The similarities continue, as the Huskies victory came in their most recent match against the Navigators, a 3-2 home victory. It was a special win for one Huskies player in particular, as the win was the first for recently acquired goaltender Daimon Derouin.
The Huskies enter the weekend on a roll, having won three games in a row, and seven of their last eight. Their current three-game winning streak was most recently capped off with an emphatic 9-2 victory in Dawson Creek, handing the Junior Canucks their seventh straight defeat.
Saturday’s home game hits the ice at 8 p.m., while Sunday’s matinee will begin at 3:30 p.m.
