The Steelheads will finish up 2015 on the road Saturday.
Smithers is headed to the coast to play the Prince Rupert Rampage. It will be the first of 3 meetings within a month.
With only 5 points separating these two, Coach Tom DeVries says neither team can afford a slip-up.
“Any team can go on a hot streak right now and take first or lose and go last … you play to do the best you can,” he says.
Smithers will have the holidays off before resuming play in Kitimat on January 9th.
