Make-up game for Lakers scheduled

The Fort Frances Lakers will return to SIJHL play a few days earlier than scheduled.
The squad will host a make-up game against the Dryden Ice Dogs this Tuesday (Jan. 8) at 7:30 p.m. at the Ice For Kids Arena.

That game—initially scheduled for Dec. 12—was cancelled due to poor road conditions.
Following a lengthy holiday break, the Lakers originally were to have returned to SIJHL action next Friday (Jan. 11) here against the league-leading Minnesota Wilderness.
Prior to that, the Lakers and Wilderness will head to Spooner, Wis. this weekend, where they’ll be taking on two teams from the Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League in a “showcase” event.
The Lakers first will go up against the defending NOJHL and Dudley Hewitt Cup champion Soo Thunderbirds tomorrow afternoon.
Then they’ll face the Elliot Lake Bobcats on Saturday.
