Sunday game between the Prince Rupert Rampage and Hazelton Wolverines cancelled

Sunday's game between the Prince Rupert Rampage and the Hazelton Wolverines has been cancelled.

Sunday’s game between the Prince Rupert Rampage and the Hazelton Wolverines has been cancelled.

The two teams were to meet at one p.m. on Sunday in a rematch from last weekend’s 5-3 victory for the Rampage but a lack of players has forced the Wolverines to cancel their road trip, which included a Saturday game in Kitimat

“We could have gone to Prince Rupert and Kitimat with an 11-man team that included two goalies, but that’s not going to do it. We didn’t feel it was fair to the players who would be going…We went to Lac La Hache and Williams Lake with 13 players, and when you go with that few players and you lose one or two you really get worn out and blown out of the water,” said Wolverines vice-president Randy Russell, alluding to being outscored 32-8 on the October 15/16 road trip and noting that three players have commitments to Minor Hockey this weekend.

“We feel bad because we had some good games with Prince Rupert, but it wouldn’t be fair.”

As a result of the forfeit, the Wolverines will pay $1,000 to both the Rampage and the Kitimat Ice Demons.
