The Fargo Force (16-19-3-1; 36pts) are gearing up for two big home games vs. one of their toughest Western Conference rivals, the Sioux City Musketeers (22-12-3-1; 48pts)
Last weekend the Force went 1-1 and home against the conference leading Tri-City Storm with a 3-2 loss on Friday night followed by a 5-3 win on Saturday. The Musketeers put up the same record falling to Lincoln 4-2 on Friday and taking down the Blackhawks 3-1 on Saturday.
The Force are led by Bret Link (15G-17A) Cole Knuble (12G-14A) and Andre Gasseau (13G-17A). In their last matchup vs. the Musketeers at Scheels Arena on January 21 & 22 Gasseau and Knuble combined for 3/4 of the Force’s total goals scored that weekend.
Sioux City forward Owen McLaughlin leads the Musketeers with 19 goals and 30 assists, although he was held to just a single point in their three games last week. He’s followed on the leader board by Charlie Schoen (19G-22A) Dylan James (14G-21A) and Ben Steeves (19G-13A).
