After sitting out the 2016/17 season, former Warriors captain and RBC Cup Champion Kyle Marino is settling into the life of college hockey with the University of Alaska-Fairbanks Nanooks.
Marino, 22, played two seasons in West Kelowna where he registered 17 goals and 54 points in 111 career BCHL games while captaining the 2015/16 version of the Warriors, who won the BCHL’s Fred Page Cup, Western Canada Cup and RBC Cup National Championship before heading to the Nanooks last season.
The Niagara Falls, Ontario native did not get into any games last season but has played in 14 games so far through the 2017/18 season with three assists and 14 penalty minutes.
Warriors play-by-play broadcaster Trevor Miller caught up with Marino and talked about the start to his season, his roommate and former Warriors forward Kylar Hope, the grind of balancing school and hockey as well as his brother and current Warriors captain Jared Marino and his offensive success:
The Warriors are back in action on Wednesday night when they head to the South Okanagan to take on the Penticton Vees for the fourth time this season. The puck drops at 7:00 PM from the South Okanagan Events Centre with the pre-game going at 6:45 PM on the Warriors Internet Network and live on pay-per-view at HockeyTV.com.
The Warriors return home to Royal LePage Place on Saturday, December 2nd against the Wenatchee Wild. Tickets can be purchased online at wkw.ticketpro.com, at the Warriors office, by calling (250) 769-7051 or at the box office ahead of the opening face-0ff.
