The Cornwall Nationals are set for a jam-packed weekend, with three Federal Hockey League contests in three days, and an appearance at a Sunday evening fundraiser.

Cornwall travels to Watertown, N.Y., on Friday night to take on the Wolves (7:30 p.m.). The following night, the Nationals are in Port Huron, Mich., to battle the 2016 Commissioner’s Cup Champion Prowlers (7:30 p.m.).

Local hockey fans can watch Friday night’s game at La Maison (900 Montreal Road in Cornwall) on the big screen. A Cornwall Nationals 10-game Flex Pack will be up for grabs.

Cornwall will be back on home ice on Sunday afternoon when the Nats welcome the Watertown Wolves to the Civic Complex. Puck drop is set for 1:30 p.m. Individual game tickets are $13 for adults, $10 for seniors/students and $5 for children under the age of 12.

After the game on Sunday, fans can join the players for a Cornwall Hospice fundraiser at Deke & Squeaks Sports Bar (58 Pitt Street). Nationals players will serve the public from 5-7:30 p.m., and all tips will be donated to Cornwall Hospice.

There will also be a silent auction, live auction, and door prizes. E-mail to reserve your table.
