Arcand honoured by PJHL
The Prince Albert Icehawks were officially eliminated from the Prairie Junior Hockey League playoff race on the weekend, but not all was lost as team captain Lyndon Arcand was presented with the league’s most sportsmanlike player award prior to the game against Fort Knox on Saturday at the Kinsmen Arena. Arcand, along with Bryce Nemish, was playing his final home game as an Icehawk as both graduate from the junior ranks this year. Arcand is also just one of two players (the other is Logan McKay) to appear in every game for Prince Albert during the regular season. Arcand had a goal and an assist in the Icehawks’ 6-2 loss to Fort Knox improving his season production to 26 goals and 22 assists to sit in second place in team scoring behind Brett Boyer. The Icehawks have just three games remaining on the schedule and can play spoiler for a couple of teams as they were in Saskatoon to face the Royals on Sunday before heading back to Saskatoon on Wednesday to take on the Quakers and then ending the season in Delisle on Friday against the Chiefs. The Royals and Quakers are in a battle for the top seed in the North Division standings while the Chiefs are slugging it out with the Saskatoon Westleys for a berth in the Survivor Series. Prince Albert, with strong showings in their final matches, can have a say in how everything finishes before the playoffs begin in 10 days.
