FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Fort St. John Huskies put the cherry on top of a record-breaking season by wrapping it up with two wins at home over the weekend.

The Sexsmith Vipers were in comeback form on Friday night, scoring three in a row after the Huskies scored four unanswered goals before the second period came to a close.

The Vipers couldn’t get any more pucks at the back of the net as the Huskies held on for the 4-3 win. Alex Nimmo led the way with two goals, including the eventual game-winner.

On Saturday, the Huskies welcomed the North Peace Navigators to town for their final regular season game and promptly dominated them, 6-1. Cayden Frenette and Kurtis Lee both had a goal and two assists in the game, while goalie Jackson Powers stopped 16 of 17 shots.

The Huskies end the regular season with a 38-1-1 record.

The Huskies’ Kurtis Lee finished the season as the league leader in points, with 70. He was the co-league leader in goals with 29, with his Huskies teammate Jared Winkel, and co-league leader in assists with 41 with his Huskies teammate Brandon Modde.

Goaltender Tyler MacArthur finishes the season with a league-leading 21 wins, nine more than second place.

The Huskies and the Vipers have a bye in the first round of the playoffs, starting Monday.

The North Peace Navigators open their five-game series against the Grande Prairie JDA Kings Monday, while the Fairview Flyers will face the Dawson Creek Kodiaks in their first game on Tuesday.
