Peters on home ice this weekend

The Grand forks Border Bruins are playing the first of three games on Midway ice this Sunday afternoon.

Lucas Peters is in his first year of junior hockey playing for the Grand Forks Border Bruins. The 18 year-old defenseman was raised in Midway and that is where the Bruins will face off against the Spokane Braves at 2 p.m. at the Midway Arena – aka the Boundary Expo Recreation Centre.

“It’s great, I am learning lots,” Peters told the Times on the phone Monday evening.

The Bruins are doing well this season with a 10-10-2-1 record (wins, losses, ties and overtime losses).

When asked if he’d ever had a real job Peters admitted to a couple of two-month summer jobs – but added that with daily practices, workouts and videos this is “more or less like a job.”

He’s looking forward to the game this weekend. It will be the first time in five years that he has played in a game on Midway ice. He said he likes the hard ice surface that the local arena provides.
