CORNER BROOK  Clearly, the Wolves have some work to do.

The Western Wolves posted a record of one win and three losses at the second of three warm-up tournaments — for the provincial AAA peewee hockey league — hosted by the Central IcePak in Bishop’s Falls over the weekend.

The AAA peewee program, featuring the top players 11-12 years of age, will see teams play three warm-up tournaments to help prepare for the provincial AAA peewee hockey championship Feb. 14-16 at the Goulds Arena. From here, the provincial champions will earn the right to represent Hockey Newfoundland and Labrador at the 2014 Bell Aliant Atlantic AAA Peewee Hockey Championship March 27-30 in Fredericton, N. B.

The first warm-up tournament was held in November in Bonavista with the Wolves posting a record of one win, one tie and two defeats at Cabot Stadium. The Wolves will host the third warm-up tournament Jan. 17-18 at the Gros Morne Arena in Rocky Harbour.
