Having a year round hockey rink in a town is what residents in some of the coastal communities wish for, like the one in Natuashish.
It is already late January and the Husky Centre in Nain is still not fully operational.
This year the weather has not gotten cold enough, early enough, to flood the rink to make the ice for skating.
According to Veryan Piwas in Natuashish, their year round hockey rink has been open and operating since October.
He says there are about thirty youths registered and playing hockey.
Piwas says there is a good turnout for the Atoms, Peewees, Bantams and Midget hockey teams.
He says they are in the process of organizing the men’s hockey teams, and they should be playing in a few more weeks.
But right now no hockey tournaments have been scheduled for any teams.
