Familiar face rejoining Lakers

A familiar face will be back in the fold next season with the Fort Frances Lakers.

The Lakers announced last Friday that they had acquired forward Tyler Malpass from the Soo Thunderbirds (NOJHL).

Malpass last suited up for the club back in the 2016-17 season in which he tallied 15 goals and 14 assists in 47 games.

He then added three helpers in six playoff games.
