Now there's a sight you don't usually see. Due to the Fort Frances Lakers' SIJHL pre-season game against the Red Lake Miners here getting postponed on Friday evening, the Lakers decided to combine rosters with the Muskie boys' hockey team and made up two teams to play a game against each other at the Ice For Kids Arena.
