The Fort St. John Huskies and Grande Prairie Wheat Kings will once again face off in the North West Junior Hockey League championships.

The Huskies won their semi-final series against the Dawson Creek in four games on Friday night, beating the Kodiaks 5-3 on the road to secure a return to the Senator Cup finals.

Cayden Frenette scored twice, and Justin Brownlee, Kurtis Lee, and Raymond Dick each put one in the net for the win. Jackson Powers stopped 19 of the 22 shots he faced.

The Huskies are the defending NWJHL Senators Cup champs, and finished this year's season with a historic 38-3-1 record and 77 points.

The team beat Grande Prairie in the best-of-seven final last season, four games to two. A schedule for this year's championship has yet to be set.

The second-place Wheat Kings also won their semi-final against Sexsmith Vipers in four games this week.
