The U17 Northstars Hockey Academy has been practicing up this week and last in preparation for weekend games in Williams Lake.

This season’s team only just all got settled in Williams Lake, with about half the team being from across the north and some from other parts of B.C., and will soon be hosting an opening season showcase for the Junior Prospects League.

The showcase is an opportunity for home fans to see the team in action before they hit the road, spending most of the season playing away games.

This weekend’s games will be taking place at the Cariboo Memorial Complex Sept. 15-17.

Friday, Sept. 15 at 5:15 p.m., the Northstars will play the Island Hockey Club from Vancouver Island.

Saturday, Sept. 16 at 6 p.m. the Northstars will play the Titans Hockey Union from Edmonton and Sunday, Sept. 17 at 10:30 a.m. the team will face off against Langley.
