BP to broadcast Laker games

Fort Frances Lakers’ fans will have a friendly, food-filled atmosphere where they can cheer on their favourite team this week.
Boston Pizza will broadcast each Laker game at the Dudley-Hewitt Cup Ontario junior ‘A ‘hockey championship being held in Wellington, beginning with tomorrow’s opener against the Toronto Lakeshore Patriots at 1:30 p.m. (all times CDT).

The Lakers then will face the host Wellington Dukes on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. before wrapping up round-robin play Thursday at 1:30 p.m. against the Kirkland Lake Gold Miners.
The semi-final between the second- and third-place finishers goes Friday at 6:30 p.m., with the final set for that same time Saturday.
The winner advances to the RBC Cup Canadian junior ‘A’ hockey championship May 10-18 in Vernon, B.C.
Boston Pizza will be giving away prizes during the broadcasts, such as NHL merchandise.
The local restaurant also will be donating $5 from every large pepperoni pizza, and $5 from every gift certificate of $20 or more bought during the games, to the Lakers.
There also will be a freewill donation area, with all money collected going to the team.
