Short bench results in Kings thumping Huskies 10-1

first_imgTo compound matters, as the available players left Fort St. John in their vehicles for Grande Prairie one of the skaters lost their equipment on the way.Faced with difficult circumstances the team encountered, two forwards were forced to play defence as Cayle Bell and Wyatt Fellows went back on the blue line.“They did fairly well,” said assistant coach Jeremy Clothier. “I don’t think either of them have played a lot of defence throughout their whole career so throwing them back there gave them a different look at the game. He [Bell] was more physical on defence than he has been up front all year so hopefully that carries forward.”- Advertisement -With only ten players lacing up the skates the Huskies did what they could. They stuck with the fundamentals but were out of gas come the final 20 minutes. It’s a game coaches are willing to chuck away as they look ahead going forward.“Basically we’ll just throw it away,” Clothier stated. “We worked quite hard for the most part. We only took three penalties and we scored a powerplay goal. They didn’t score on the powerplay. We did a few things right. We got a few pucks out, we iced the puck a ton. We didn’t take a lot of chances. Our guys were actually quite smart in how they played.”The Huskies have three games coming up over four days beginning on Wednesday. They’ll be in Dawson Creek on Wednesday night at 8 p.m. That game is followed by two more road games in Sexsmith and Grande Prairie on Friday and Saturday respectively.Advertisementlast_img read more
