Team North rolls on
The 2016 National Aboriginal Hockey Championship in Mississauga, Ont., has been a mixture of ups and downs for Team North.
The ups came courtesy of the boys team as they finished the round-robin with a record of two wins and one loss, the only blemish being a 6-2 loss to B.C on Wednesday, meaning a second place finish in pool B. Their opponent wasn't known as of press time.
The girls, meanwhile, ended up dropping all three of its round-robin games to Manitoba, Ontario and B.C. to finish fourth, meaning a quarter-final match-up with Alberta.
See the next edition of Yellowknifer for the final recap.
Steven Hodges done for the season
Yellowknife's Steven Hodges got back on the ice late this season in time to play in the American Hockey League and the ECHL.
It was in the ECHL where he finished things up on April 20 with the Manchester Monarchs. The Monarchs were up against the Adirondack Thunder but came up short in game five of the best-of-seven first round match-up, 3-1.
Hodges played six games with the Portland Pirates of the AHL and eight games with the Monarchs, where he scored three goals and added three assists.
