The Fort Saint John Husky who were named to the NWJHL All Star game were announced today. Congratulations to Payden Wongstedt, Captain Jonathan Spence, Kole Norris, Steven Fast, Dan Pappin, and Cody Kalb. All of them are deserving of representing the Huckies in Whitecourt. Dylan Apsassin and Jordan Shipton would certainly have been in consideration had they played more games.
The format of the All Star game will be East versus West with the Huskies along with Beaverlodge, Dawson Creek and Sexsmith representing the West. There will be a skills competition in the afternoon followed by the game later on in the evening. The players will also attend a banquet and have a chance to mingle with fans. The game will be broadcast on XM105 in Whitecourt and if you want to listen I am sure you will be able to listen through their website. www.xm105.com
