Connor Keith's been looking forward to it all season. He's a defenceman with the Fort Frances Lakers, who are getting ready to play English River, during Hockey Day in Canada.
The game's set for Saturday night at the Kenora rec centre. Keith's recovering from concussion symptoms, and he's hoping to be ready in time. A highlight, he says, will be seeing Don Cherry in the Coach's Corner and the hometown fans.
"Yeah, that'd be definitely a once in a lifetime opportunity," he said. "I'm really looking forward to that. Playing in front of my hometown again will be awesome."
Game time is set for 6:30 p.m. Saturday night.
