Host pair of weekend games
CHARLOTTETOWN – The Charlottetown Mark's Work Wearhouse Islanders will host the second-place Miramichi Rivermen twice this weekend.
The New Brunswick/P.E.I. Major Midget Hockey League teams will meet on Friday at 8 p.m., and again on Sunday at 1:45 p.m. Both games will be played at MacLauchlan Arena on the UPEI campus.
The Rivermen bring a 2-0-1 (won-lost-overtime/shootout losses) record into Charlottetown. Miramichi’s only loss was a 1-0 shootout decision to the first-place Saint John Vitos.
The Islanders, who were off last week, return to action after a pair of one-goal losses to open the season. The Islanders lost 10-9 in overtime to Saint John and 3-2 to the Moncton Flyers (3-1-0).
Early indications are the six-team league will be very competitive this year.
