Lakers looking to play tougher hockey

The Fort Frances Lakers have started the season strong in winning three of their first four games, but playing a more physical brand of hockey is something head coach and general manager Wayne Strachan is hoping his squad will adapt to.

Fort Frances (3-1-0-0) won its home-opener 6-5 over the Minnesota Iron Rangers (0-3-0-0) on Friday night on the back of Noah Loveday's late goal.

Drivers charged

On Sunday around 6:10 p.m., members of the Rainy River District OPP were dispatched to a report of an impaired driver on Scott Street who almost had caused a collision and then pulled into the Safeway parking lot.

The vehicle was located and upon speaking to the driver, the officer suspected he was under the influence of a controlled substance.
