The win means the North Stars take the division title by two points over Kindersley. They also clinched the number two seed overall in the league on a night when many playoff positions were still to be decided.

“It’s crazy, man. It’s a great feeling,” said Head Coach Brayden Klimosko.

“The boys deserve it, the boys worked hard, they deserve the two points. They deserve the division win. We battled hard to get back to that spot and at the end of the day that’s all you can ask for your group.”
