The Islanders have just one league championship in their history capturing the Northwest Junior Hockey League honor in 1995. In their eight season KJHL history Cross Lake had their best finish in 2016 when the Islanders advanced to the semifinals before falling to OCN Storm in four games.
Peguis are scheduled to host Cross Lake next weekend in the final two games of the regular season. OCN Storm (19-9-0-0) and Norway House North Stars (4-24-0-0) have completed their regular season schedule.
