With a 13-7-1 record, the Lakers face Northern Lakes (9-13-0) at home Friday, Park Rapids (14-5-3) at home for a huge section game Feb. 11, and travel Little Falls (3-17-2) Feb. 13.

The Lakers have shown a strong first line which can produce goals, led by sophomore center Jon Richards, who has 50 points on the season with 19 goals and 31 assists.

Linemate Ryan DeConcini has 45 points with 21 goals and 24 assists, while Wilson Lysford has 12 goals and 21 assists for 33 points.

Depth at goalie has also been a strength, with starter MacKenzie Steele recording a save percentage of 89.1, while sophomore Austin Fritz is 5-0 with a 90.9 save percentage.

The two goalies each had wins Thursday and Friday, with Fritz having 15 saves against Wadena-Deer Creek.

The Lakers manhandled the Wolverines by outshooting them 50-16, with four different DL players scoring in Jacob Fritz, DeConcini, Brady Crawford and Casey Paskey.

Steele nabbed the win over Greenway Coleraine with 28 saves, as DL zipped to a 3-0 first period lead on goals by Lysford on a power play, Jacob Fritz and DeConcini.

DL had to maintain that lead after scoreless second and third periods, while the Raiders scored two in the final frame.
