Saskatchewan Looking For 4th Straight Gold

Yorkton Terrier Assistant Coach Danny McKay and several local area players are part of this year's Team Saskatchewan at the National Aboriginal Hockey Championships.

This year's event is in Saskatoon, and got underway Tuesday.

Saskatchewan posted a pair of convincing wins, 10-1 over North West Territories and 7-3 over Eastern Door & The North (Northern Quebec).

They're back in action today (WED) against Ontario (2:00) and B.C. (7:45) to finish off the round robin and look for a bye into the Semis on the weekend.

Saskatchewan has won the last three NAHC's and McKay has been the Head Coach for every one.

Other locals on the team include:

Dustin Skilliter (Yorkton Harvest)
Kailum Gervais (Yorkton Harvest)
Rodney Sewap (Yorkton Harvest)
Dalton Peigan (Ochapowace Thunder)
Lenny Keshane (Ochapowace Thunder)
Kirk Bear (Melville 'AA' Midget)
Trainer Riley Rice (Yorkton Terriers)
