CORNER BROOK Budding hockey players in the west who want to play the game at the major midget level should find their way to Corner Brook this weekend.
The Colemans Western Kings of the Newfoundland and Labrador Major Midget Hockey League will be holding its 2014 spring identification May 9-10 at the Kinsmen Arena II.
The first open on-ice session for prospects from pockets of western Newfoundland is scheduled for Friday 6:30-8:30 p.m. and two sessions will be held on Saturday with ice slots scheduled for both 9-11 a.m. and 1-3 p.m. at the Kinsmen Arena II.
The Central IcePak didn't waste any time showing why they were the top major midget hockey club in the province this past year.
Nick Fitzgerald scored two goals to lead the league champion IcePak to a 7-5 win over the Colemans Western Kings in Game 5 of a best-of-seven final earlier this year to claim the championship crown.
The IcePak came into enemy territory with the series tied at one game apiece, but despite a gallant effort from the defending champions, three straight wins catapulted the central squad to the top.
The Kings won the crown one year earlier.
