All four regional NOJHL teams match up against one another to begin the weekend.

The Timmins Rock will travel up and visit the Hearst Lumberjacks at 7:00pm, while the Cochrane Crunch welcome the Kirkland Lake Gold Miners at 7:30pm.

The Rock defeated the Lumberjacks 3-1 last Saturday at the McIntyre Arena after a late shorthanded marker by Derek Seguin.

Meantime, the Crunch beat the Gold Miners twice in exhibition play at the Polar Bear Classic in high-scoring affairs. In round-robin play, Cochrane won 7-5 and in the semi-final, it was a 6-4 final.

The Crunch and Miners also meet Saturday night in Kirkland Lake.
