The North Central Hockey League resumes this week with the Morinville Kings heading to Whitecourt to face the Wild at 3 p.m. Sunday.

The Kings return to home ice the following week with a Saturday night outing Sept. 14 against the Rocky Rams. Before that, they face Westlock on the road Sept. 13.

The Kings are currently sitting in third place with a 12-3-0 record, a point and a game behind Devon and two points and a game behind Daysland.
