Houston Luckies kick start their season against the Smithers Steelheads in Houston this Saturday.

Shane Brienen, President of the Luckies, was optimistic about the team at press time.

“I think the Luckies will improve quite a bit this year.

“They were fairly young last year but even the games that they lost, most of the

time they were right in there going into the third period,” Brienen, said.

“I think that with a little more experience which they got last year, they’ll have a much better season this year,” he said.

Brienen says most of the core players were trying out for the team, as well as a few new players from Houston and Burns Lake who are back from Juniors.

At press time, Brienen said it looked like they’d have their three goalies back:

Brock Henrickson, David Little, and Colton Wardrop.

There are a few changes at the league level, including no Vanderhoof team this year and a few changes to the fighting rules for the season.

Brienen says there are more suspensions for fighting and the more a player fights, the longer their suspensions will be.

Houston prices remain the lowest in the league, and family prices are dropping in Houston this year.
