Uzelman with puck

Kyle Uzelman of the Fort Frances Lakers skated his way towards the Thief River Falls Norskies' net with the puck during the first period of the Lakers' 2-1 win in SIJHL action on Saturday night at the Ice For Kids Arena. Uzelman notched a goal in the second period to help the Lakers nail down their 15th win of the season.

Laker approaches

Fort Frances Lakers' captain Noah Loveday tried to navigate his way through the Thief River Falls Norskies' defence as he entered the offensive zone during the third period of the Lakers' 2-1 win on Saturday night in SIJHL action at the Ice For Kids Arena. Loveday dished out a pair of assists in that one to help his squad earn a home-and-home split against Thief River Falls.

Setting the screen

Josh Ward and Muskie teammate Nolan Mann did their best to impede the vision of International Falls Broncos' goalie Mitchell Nemec as they set a great screen in front, during the first period of Fort High's 4-3 win in the finale of their annual two-game “Border Battle” exhibition series on Tuesday night at the Ice For Kids Arena.

Nugent performing

Hallee Nugent of the local Northern Lights School of Skating was among an abundance of great performances for the school as the athletes shone bright at the second-annual Fort Frances Freeze Super Series competition that was hosted by the Border Skating Club on Saturday and Sunday at “The Duke” (Couchiching Arena).

Payne rink advances to U18 provincials

It was nearly a perfect weekend of curling for the local Ashley Payne rink at the U18 regionals held in Sioux Lookout over the weekend.

Team Payne, which is also comprised of Lauren Penney (lead), Daffni Chabot (second), Jillian Cousineau (third), and Anna Peters, compiled a 4-1 record en route to a second-place finish and thus qualifying for the provincials next month.

Lakers showing signs of progress

Wayne Strachan can see the light at the end of the tunnel and he's hoping to guide his team towards it.

The head coach and general manager of the Fort Frances Lakers has seen some signs of progress from his club and feels as though it is starting to play some of its best hockey of the season—even if it's not exactly showing in the win column just yet.
