OLIVER PAIPOONGE – It will be a scaled-back Teleco Cup this weekend at the NortWest Arena.
The host Kam River Fighting Walleye on Tuesday announced the event has been reduced to a two-game series between themselves and an all-star team from the Lakehead Junior Hockey League. The Fort Frances Lakers and Wisconsin Lumberjacks, both originally scheduled to take part in a four-team event, will not participate.
Walleye officials cite unforeseen circumstances.
The new scheduled will see the Fighting Walleye take on the LJHL all-stars at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday and 1 p.m on Sunday.
The tournament winner will be determined based on an aggregate point system.
Weekend pass-holders will be refunded $30 and anyone wanting a full refund can contact the Fighting Walleye front office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Single-game tickets are still available, with a cap of 275 spectators allowed in the arena. The team has encouraged fans to pre-pay for tickets to ensure entry.
