WEST KELOWNA, B.C. – The new look Warriors(5-18-3-2) look to get vengeance when they host the Powell River Kings(13-14-1) Friday night.
Warriors vs. Kings 2019/20 Regular Season Schedule:
Friday, November 8th @ Hap Parker Arena (7:00 PM) LOSS 2-1
Friday, November 29th @ Royal LePage Place (7:00 PM)
The Warriors are coming off one of their most exciting victories of the season snapping their 10 game losing streak. It was a 6-2 win over the Salmon Arm Silverbacks. Although it was a complete game from top to bottom for the Warriors all the talk around town was the rookie trio of Tyler Cristall, Brendan Pigeon and John Evans. The three combined for 10 points last Saturday and will be back together Friday night when the Warriors host the Powell River Kings.
Tonight the Warriors look for revenge after suffering a 2-1 loss to the Kings during their Island road trip 3 weeks ago. Jacob Brockman scored the only goal with Kings goaltender Derek Krall standing tall. The Warriors might need a little more than a great rookie line to defeat a great defensive club like the Kings. Tonight will also be the debut of newly acquired Carter Wilkie and Holden Kodak. Wilkie brings depth, size and scoring for the Warriors. The Calgary native spent the past two seasons with the Chilliwack Chiefs. “Carter is an impact player who will help us at centre right away,” stated Warriors Head Coach and General Manager Brandon West. “He has a good skill set to go along with his vision and hockey IQ”. Holden Kodak spent this season and last season in the Western Hockey League with clubs like the Prince George Cougars and Kootenay Ice. Kodak’s well known for his play with the Yale Lions of the CSSHL where he was able to score 52 goals and 40 assists in only 36 games played in the 2017-18 season.
This evening’s game will be broadcast on both HockeyTV and the Warriors Mixlr Network. Puck drop at 7:00pm from Royal LePage Place in West Kelowna. For tickets to any upcoming home game visit tickets.westkelownawarriors.ca for details and packages.
