The Kindersley Klippers have been red-hot in February.

The Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League team was three-for-three last week and is four-for-four this month. They defeated the La Ronge Ice Wolves 5-2 on Saturday and 2-1 in Unity last Wednesday. Sandwiched in between, they defeated the Notre Dame Hounds 3-1 on Friday.

“We’ve been pretty strong, again, since Christmas,” said coach Geoff Grimwood. “They are playing a good team game right now.”

One of the factors for success this past week was having Josh Fletcher make his return to the ice last Wednesday after being injured just 16 games into the season.

“It was great having him back. He’s a hard working player and makes everyone around him just elevate their game,” said Grimwood.
