Fairview Flyers Looking For Improvements This Season


The Fairview Flyers are ready to begin the NWJHL season.

Lance Wiebe, the Flyers head coach and GM, says they had a good number of returning players at their training camp.

“We had what we expected for returning players and then a large addition of new guys looking for spots so we had a fantastic showing with lots of guys on the ice and gave us a good look at several players.”

Last season, The Flyers finished in last place and missed the playoffs after winning just three games in the regular season.

Wiebe says they hope that their returning players build off some learning experiences from how last year went.

“More than half of our roster were new last year so we knew we were gonna have a tough one, but we fought through it and made lots of improvements and that’s what we’re looking to do this season is to build and be bigger and better for this year.”

The full interview with Wiebe can be heard below.
