Fort Frances Bantam ‘AA’ Canadians’ defenceman Mike Drouin prepared to blast a shot toward the net Friday afternoon at the Ice For Kids Arena during his team’s 4-1 win over the Southeast Blizzard of Steinbach, Man. in a round-robin contest in the 48th-annual local Bantam ‘AA’ tournament. The hosts went on to capture the tournament title Sunday afternoon with a wild 10-9 win versus the Seine River Snipers of Ste. Anne, Man.
