"We have some of the best hockey coaching and volunteers in Rankin Inlet," Kusugak said. "I encourage them to keep up the hard work because they produce champions. I would also like to mention that these fine young hockey players are relying on us to help them get a new arena in Rankin Inlet." (PHOTO BY JANE GEORGE)
