The 2018-2019 season is winding down for the majority of the cast that makes up the Soo Minor Thunderbirds of the Great North Midget Hockey League.
The Minor Thunderbirds have a respectable record of 9-10-4 in league play with one game remaining on the regular season schedule. They will then take part in a four-team, minor midget tournament sponsored by the Northern Ontario Hockey Association.
As well, three members of the Minor T-Birds, defensemen Tyler Dunbar and Jack Matier and forward Stephen Pszeniczny, will be part of the Team NOHA squad that will compete at the OHL Cup and the OHL Gold Cup.
