3 Iqaluit youth make waves in Keystone Junior Hockey league


Three young hockey players from Iqaluit are lighting up the scoreboards in The Pas, Man.

Lodie Ipeelie Jr., Mitchell Tilley and Nate Gardner are playing hockey for the Opaskwayak Cree Nation team in the Keystone Junior Hockey league — the same league where Jordin Tootoo got his start.

"The speed is great, it's amazing," says Ipeelie Jr. "You're out there for 30 to 40 seconds, and busting as hard as you can every shift. Your legs are just wanting to give up but you can't stop."
