North Stars-IceDiggers game postponed

The Traverse City North Stars will not be able to extend their current winning streak to seven tonight in Alpena as the game has been postponed.

With a number of players on both teams out impacted by sickness, the contest has been stricken from the NAHL slate and will be made up an a yet-unspecified date.

“Postponing games isn’t something anyone wants to have to do,” said Stars head coach-GM Anthony Palumbo. “But you have to have players to play a hockey game and there simply weren’t enough available guys to field a full team on either side. There really wasn’t much of a choice here.”

The North Stars (14-4-1) will now have the weekend off to try to get healthy for a pair of Thanksgiving holiday weekend affairs at Centre ICE arena against Alpena (6-15-0). The IceDiggers will visit for the annual Thanksgiving Eve classic and then make a return appearance on Saturday evening. Both games face-off at 7:00 p.m.
