The Williams Lake peewee girls Benny and the Jets house team will be featured on CBC’s Hockey Day in Canada this Saturday, Jan. 18.

Hockey Day in Canada will air from Prince George this weekend, with part of the festivities featuring the Williams Lake team squaring off against their northern rivals.

“The Prince George girls team we played against last weekend asked us to come up again to play against them for Hockey Day in Canada,” said Elisabeth Pocock, team manager with Benny and the Jets.

Saturday, starting at 8:15 a.m., the two teams will play.

“It’s going to be taped by CBC and they’re going to show snippets throughout the day,” she said.

“It should be pretty good. They’ve got NHL alumni coming up there to talk to the girls and Scotiabank is doing some things for the girls, as well.”
