In the mid-2000’s, the North Central Minor Hockey League started in Saskatchewan, but the league ended up folding in 2010.

The league started up again at the beginning of this current hockey season.

"This summer, I bounced the word around to people to see if they were interested in starting this league, and we got a good response," said North Central Minor Hockey League President, Devin Bernatchez. "This November, we had an AGM. After that AGM, we decided to create three divisions."

The league is made up of novice, atom and peewee divisions. Over 250 players participate in the league in northern Saskatchewan. Bernatchez says a highlight of the league is that over 45 female players are taking part.

"That’s a great thing for our league and it’s a great thing for young girls entering into hockey, that’s something we want to promote," said Bernatchez. "Next year, we’re looking at having an all-girls division."

The league will hold its AGM on May 3rd, a location has not been decided yet.

A suspended band councillor from Key First Nation facing drug charges has been approved for electronic monitoring and released on $1,000 bail.

Clarence Papequash, 64, was in Yorkton court on Wednesday to seek bail on 10 charges: five for drug possession for the purpose of trafficking, four for firearms-related offences, and one for possession of stolen property.

He had been in custody since Feb. 15. At that time, police were executing a search warrant on Papequash’s residence. Mounties say they seized a number of pills and firearms from the home. They laid charges following the search.

Papequash is a current band councillor and former chief of Key, who was forced to resign in 2014 when he entered guilty pleas to drug charges that date back to 2010.

Current Key Chief Rodney Brass told MBC that Papequash was suspended as soon as the RCMP told Brass about the new charges. The band is looking into long-term options.

Papequash’s next court appearance is set for mid-March in Kamsack.
