Senior Flyers to drop puck on home opener Saturday night

The Dawson Creek Canucks will also be looking to win for the first time in the young season as they dropped their season opening contest at home to Hythe 8-6.

The Flyers will be counting on more of the same from Trevor Fitzgerald and Robbie Sidhu, who each had two points in the loss to Grande Prairie.

The Flyers have also announced their captains for the current season. Jeff Shipton will wear the captain’s C this year. Meanwhile, the players voted for Jeff Fast, Arlo Hadland, and Mike Shipton as the assistant captains.

Opening faceoff for Saturday’s game is slated for 8:30 p.m.
