Canucks vs Huskies tonight

Game time is 8:00pm
Pre-game show 7:45pm


The Canucks are going to once again be looking to the line of Charles Radke, Colter McLean and Reed Smith to provide most of the offence. The Canucks top unit has scored 13 of the team's 25 goals (Smith has 6).

Head To Head

Only one meeting between these two teams this season which came back on opening night. The Huskies jumped out to a 4-1 lead after 40 minutes but the third was all Canucks. Four straight goals gave DC their first lead before the Dogs tied things late. FSJ went on to win in overtime on the power play after a very questionable call at the end of the third period. Final score: 6-5.

This will be a match up of two of the league's top teams as Dawson Creek is 4-0-0-1 to start the season while the Huskies are 4-1-0-0.

Last Game

The Canucks last game was a 6-2 win over North Peace. The victory is the Canucks fourth straight since the overtime loss to the Huskies. On the power play Dawson Creek scored once in four chances and they were a perfect 3 for 3 on the penalty kill including a huge kill in the third on a lengthy 5 on 3 advantage.

Cody Garnett was between the pipes and has played in all five Canuck games to start the season.

The winning streak includes wins over Grande Prairie (2), Slave Lake and North Peace.
