Lakers re-sign Meyer


The Fort Frances Lakers’ offensive outlook for the coming season just became a whole lot brighter.
The team announced today it will have high-scoring forward Mason Meyer back in the fold.
“Mason, at this point, is the highest-scoring player we have returning from last year’s roster,” noted Lakers’ general manager and head coach Wayne Strachan.
“We are hoping he can build on last year’s success and again be one of our leaders on the ice, and a player the league has to watch for night after night,” Strachan added.
Meyer was named the SIJHL’s most improved player, and selected a CCM first-team all-star, last season after finishing third in the league in goals (40) and fourth in assists (50) and points (90).
The 20-year-old International Falls product also was second in power-play goals with 13.
The Lakers also revealed yesterday they will hold their main camp Aug. 28-30 at the Ice For Kids Arena.
After registration and off-ice testing, the squad will have its first on-ice session at 8 p.m. that first day.
The following two days will see the players on the ice twice a day.
Sessions are slated for 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. on Day 2 and 10 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. on Day 3.
