The Hawkesbury Hawks will look to get back on the winning track in front of their hometown fans this Friday night (October 14), as they face the Pembroke Lumber Kings. Puck drop at the Robert Hartley Sports Complex is 7:30 p.m.

The Hawks finished with a record of one win and two losses in last weekend’s Central Canada Hockey League Showcase at the Bells Sensplex in Kanata, after a 3-2 loss on Monday (October 10) to the Brockville Braves closed out the team’s three games in three days over the Thanksgiving weekend. The Hawks now sport a record of three wins, three losses and one overtime loss and one shootout loss in eight games played and sit in fourth place in the CCHL’s Yzerman Division.
