DENINU KUE/FORT RESOLUTION
It's not every day a two-time Stanley Cup champion comes to Fort Resolution but that was the case earlier this month.
Brad Lukowich, who won his rings with the Tampa Bay Lightning and Dallas Stars, made the trip to the community from March 19 to 22 to help run a hockey camp for community's minor hockey players and also take part in the community's annual spring carnival.

It's playoff time

The Yk Minor Hockey Association is getting set to wind down its 2014-2015 season and it all begins on Monday as the playoffs begin.
The atom, peewee, bantam and midget divisions will all begin the round-robin portion of the playoffs with everyone playing everyone to determine seedings for the elimination portion of the playoffs.
It all comes to a head on April 19 with "Championship Sunday" as the two teams left standing in each division will face off for all the marbles.
The Timbits, initiation and novice divisions have wrapped up for this season already but will return to the ice on Championship Sunday to round out their seasons.

Down to the wire

While the Yk Minor Hockey Association prepares for its playoff round, the Yk Rec Hockey League is about to crown its champions for the 2014-2015 season.
The championship games for the A and B divisions will be played at the Multiplex tomorrow night beginning with the A division contest at 9:15 p.m., followed by the B division decider at 10:45 p.m. It's all in preparation for the First Air Rec Hockey Tournament, which begins on April 2.
