Round Two in the Northeastern Alberta Junior Hockey League’s Playoffs gets underway tonight with all four remaining teams hitting the ice ...
The Wainwright Bisons are hoping rust isn’t a factor when they welcome the Cold Lake Ice for Game 1 of that Best-of-Seven Series.
The Bisons, who are 16-and-2 in N.E.A.J.H.L. playoff games dating back to last season, haven’t played since sweeping Vermilion on February 21st.
Meantime, the Ice may have the opposite problem and are hoping they’ll have gas in the tank.
Cold Lake upset St. Paul in Round One, winning that series four games to three, but needing extra time to pull out each of their wins.
Elsewhere, the Killam Wheat Kings welcome the Frog Lake T-Birds in a series that will showcase the league’s top two playoff scorers.
Frog Lake's Cody Hodgson leads the way with nine goals and sixteen points through five games while Killam's Clay Lang isn’t far behind with eight goals and thirteen points, also through five games.
