Fort St. John Huskies hand out 2019-20 team awards, end win streak at 16

All good things must come to an end eventually. The Fort St. John Huskies won their 16th game in a row against the County of Grande Prairie Kings 6-5 on Feb. 7, only to blow a late lead to the North Peace Navigators the next day, losing 4-2 and ending an incredible strech of wins that saw the Huskies outscore opponents 99-43.

However, there was no disappointment to be found, as the team and their families went straight to the Fort St. John Legion after the Feb. 8 game to hand out player awards at their annual banquet.

Jared Loewen won his third-straight best defenceman award, and was named the team’s MVP.

“The sky is the limit for this guy, and is the epitome of a guy being rewarded for the hard work and practice he puts in,” said coach Todd Alexander about Loewen.

The entire evening was a celebration of the Huskies outstanding season — they have locked up first place for the playoffs and have won 23 of their last 25 games. Now, they turn their attention towards winning a third-straight Senator’s Cup Championship.

The Huskies have two more games to play in the regular season — Friday, Feb. 14 at home against the Fairview Flyers, and Saturday, Feb. 15 in Peace River against the North Peace Navigators. The Huskies will then have a bye for the first round of the NWJHL playoffs.
