A week after sweeping the Slave Lake Wolves in Round 1 of the North West Junior Hockey League playoffs, it’s finally been confirmed that the Fort St. John Huskies will be facing the Grande Prairie JDA Kings in Round 2.

While the team suspected they’d be playing against the league dominant JDA Kings, it couldn’t be confirmed until the series between the Fairview Flyers and Beaverlodge Blades ended.

Now the schedule has been set, and Game 1 of Round 2 has been scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 28 in Grande Prairie.

“It’s going to be a tough one,” said Huskies forward Jamie Watson about facing the JDA Kings. “We’re going to have to come out strong and come out strong and keep positive. We can’t quit. We’re a hard-working team.”

The Kings finished the NWJHL regular season on top of the league with an incredible record of 32-3-0 and 64 points, while the Huskies – who finished fifth – had a 14-18-3 record and 31 points in comparison.

“Whatever happens, we’re happy,” Watson said. “We’re all having fun and that’s what it’s all about.”

Watson continued to talk about how badly the Huskies want to win and go deeper in the playoffs to give their fans something to cheer for and prove themselves.

Game 1 will take place in Grande Prairie at 8:30 p.m. and the Huskies will host the Kings for Game 2 at North Peace Arena on Saturday, March 2 at 8 p.m.
