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.
