It's been a very successful season so far for the Unity Lazers, who compete in the Centre Four Hockey League in the Midget AA Division. Through their first 20 games of the season, the Lazers find themselves in fourth place in the standings with a record of 14-5-1 (14 wins, 5 losses and 1 tie).

The Lazers are solid in all aspects of the ice with great goaltenders, solid defencemen and have some players that are very offensively-gifted. One of those gifted forwards happens to be Colby Ralston, a first-year Midget player who finds himself in the top 10 in league scoring.

Ralston leads his team in points, which is rare for a first year Midget player to accomplish. In 2017, Ralston was selected in the SJHL Bantam Draft to the Kindersley Klippers in the 4th round with the 40th overall pick.

With the Klippers holding the pick for the future, it's safe to say that Ralston is in good hands when it comes to the future for his hockey career. For the rest of this season, Ralston will continue to work on his overall hockey skills, and be a team first player the rest of the way.

We spoke to Head Coach of the Lazers, Dwayne Scott, about the high-caliber teams alongside them at the top of the standings, and how that adds to the excitement for his group when they arrive at the rink every night.

"From what we see, the kids are having a great time. We have a great mixture of young players, to older players and everyone really gets along well. We feel like we can beat any team in this league with our group." Scott said.

The Lazers are traveling to Regina this weekend for their lone tournament of the year. The tournament will feature other Midget AA teams in the Centre Four Hockey League, the southern part of the province, Alberta and Manitoba.
