With the Junior B hockey season in the books, three clubs in the NWJHL finished among the Top 20 clubs in the entire province.

The first place Fort St.John Huskies, who are also hosting Provincials, finished with the 5th best winning percentage in the province.

The North Peace Navigators finished three points behind the Huskies in the NWJHL regular season standings but ended up in 6th in Alberta.

Finally, the Dawson Creek Jr. Canucks struggled in their final three games of the year, and as a result, they dropped four spots in the rankings, down into a tie for 11th.

The Fort St.John Huskies earned a 1st round bye thanks to their first place finish, and earn an automatic berth in the league Semi-Finals.

The North Peace Navigators will face the Beaverlodge Blades in the first round, and Dawson Creek will battle Sexsmith.

Both series will begin on Wednesday.
