Seeking to vacate the cellar of the Midwest Jr. Hockey League, Soo Firehawks are home for three games this weekend as they play host to the MC Monarchs.

With a record of 5-13-2, seventh-place Soo is a point back of the sixth-place Alpena Flyers in the MWJHL standings. Alpena has a record of 5-11-3.

As Alpena has a home-and-home series with the 19-1-1 Traverse City Hounds this weekend, the Soo will try to take advantage of Big Bear Arena when it plays host to MC tonight at 7:30, Saturday evening at 7:00 and Sunday afternoon at 1:00.

MC is a strong third in the MWJHL with a record of 19-8 and features league scoring leader Adam Jonak, who has a remarkable 35 goals, 48 assists, 83 points. The Monarchs also boast the MWJHL’s top scoring defenceman in Jarrad Vroman, who has 10-31-41 numbers.
