FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – On Friday night, the Fort St. John Huskies managed to exorcise the demons of losing to the bottom team in the NWJHL two weeks ago.

Hosting the Beaverlodge Blades on Friday night, the Huskies managed to get things started nearly 7 minutes in, as Matthew Apsassin put the Pups up 1-0 assisted by Gary Loewen. Brandon Howard made it 2-0 for the dogs less than a minute later with a powerplay goal assisted by Loewen and Jarod Lang.

Loewen continued to tally assists, as he and Tyler Bueckert fed Jacob Lang to put the Huskies up 3-0 close to 12 minutes in. Joshua Robinson tallied the Huskies’ 4th goal less than a minute later, assisted by Drew Fudger and Lou Turnbull-Giesbrecht.

In the 2nd, Apsassin scored his 2nd goal helped by David Smith and Geoff Dick. Dick then got another assist when Drew Fudger scored with less than 5 minutes left in the second. Jared Lowen tallied the 2nd assist on that goal. Adam Bowie sealed the deal in the third, while Gary Loewen tallied his 4th assist of the night along with Jarod Lang with less than 4 minutes in the game. Beaverlodge couldn’t find an answer as the Huskies won 7-0.

The Huskies are back on home ice on Wednesday night when they host the top team in the league. The Huskies beat the Dawson Creek Jr. Canucks on October 28th, and will be looking to improve to 2-0 against them at the North Peace Arena. Puck drops at 8:00 p.m.
