Canucks fall flat on opening night, routed 8-3 by Huskies

 Speaking with acting captain Connor Rose ahead of Saturday's season opener, the same theme came up again and again. "We just need to get the lines together and find some chemistry," he said. "Once we get a little ways into this season, we'll click pretty good. This is a team that's not as close off the ice. ... We're still working out the kinks."

In short: we aren't a team yet.

He was talking about the team's pre-season losses at the time, but he could have just as easily been talking about Saturday's stunning loss at the Memorial Arena, where a group of individuals wearing the same coloured jersey were demolished 8-3 by the Fort St. John Huskies in their home opener.

Junior Canucks fall 7-4 to Sexsmith in pre-season opener

The Dawson Creek Junior Canucks kicked off their exhibition schedule last night at the Memorial Arena with a 7-4 loss at the hands of the visiting Sexsmith Vipers.
