This Week In The NWJHL – December 9

We’re now into the second half of the league schedule as we get closer to the holiday break.

All six teams will be off from December 22 to January 2.

Everyone will be trying to get some more wins under their belts for the next two weeks before the break.

They got a 5-3 win on Friday before winning 6-5 in overtime on Saturday.

North Peace will have a chance to move into first this weekend as they’ll face Fort St. John in a two game set this weekend in Peace River.


Sitting in fourth place right now are the Flyers.
