Huge Win    The Whitehorse Huskies are out of Darryl Sutters dog house. The huge 4-3 win over the defending S.I.C.H.L. champion  Fredericton Express , a team the Huskies have been unable to beat.  The Huskies have been coming off a three game losing streak . The dogs now push their record to four and four , well below last years pace.   " It is a different year , we felt all along if we finish the first 12 games at five hundred we would be happy , it is that tough. Victor Hedman stepped up today and helped us win this big game. We had a better effort from our second line , they have been slow out of the gate. The turning point of the game is when  Karl Alzner beats up Milan Lucic at 0:11 of 3rd period . Lucic gets the gate and looses fight , we took off from there. The play of Ryan White since being called up from the Claimjumpers of Penticton has been jump start for the team , checking , scoring and fighting  .  Big goal late makes win possible , with James Neal  scoring from Jordan Staal and Martin St Louis . Neal is off to a slow start by his pace of last year , but scoring nine seconds left against the Express boosts  the team" said coach Daryl Sutter .     Radek Faksa  playing for the Czech Republic and Jacob De La Rose playing for the home country Swedan , are playing in Malmo Swedan at the world jrs . Henrik Samuelsson was also on the roster for team U.S.A. , but played a small amount in one game . "Three Huskies at world jrs and not one from Canada , my things have changed in 16 years." said GM DR Morrison.
