FORT ST. JOHN B.C.- The Fort St. John Huskies have won their third straight Senators’ Cup and are on their way to the provincial championships.
The Huskies will be representing the NWJHL at the Alberta Junior B Provincials in Wainwright, Alberta, from March 31st to April 3rd.
The club will be competing for the Russ Burns Trophy, which is awarded to the top team in Alberta.
Jared Winkel says he is excited about the Senators Cup win, but he wants more.
“Well, it feels unreal, but honestly, I thought it would feel a little better, but I’m not satisfied. I wanna win provincials now, ” said Winkel.
Head coach Todd Alexander says he didn’t have to say much to the team because they were ready to go.
“They were already fired up, and you don’t need to throw any juice in the fire. At that point, they just came out playing hard, ” said Alexander.
“We’ve been doing an excellent job all year long and just played hockey. We’re tough to deal with. I’m really proud of everybody who has been along in this journey this year. It’s taken all 25 guys. Everybody got into the mix, so proud of everybody in their accomplishments and looking forward to getting down the provincials,” said Alexander.
