Flyers to play Senior Canucks Friday

With the opening of the North Peace Hockey League season still two weeks away, the Fort St. John Senior Flyers will get their first taste of real hockey action in exhibition play Friday.

The Flyers will welcome their cross the river rival Dawson Creek Senior Canucks at 8 p.m. at North Peace Arena.

It will be the first meeting of the two squads since the Flyers ousted the Sr. C’s from the NPHL playoffs last February.

The five games series came to an epic conclusion with a 7-2 win for Fort St. John at home, but the series as a whole was full of fireworks. Dawson Creek won games two and four of the series by a goal a piece, while the Flyers outscored the Sr. Canucks 20-4 in their wins.

The regular season series was a much different story, as the Sr. Canucks handed the Flyers three of their four losses.

The exhibition game will be a good way to kick start the rivalry again in 2016, because the two teams won’t meet in the NPHL regular season until Thursday, Nov. 17.
