Busy week for Victoria Grizzles, Westshore Wolves

Teams won both games this week

It was a busy weekend on the ice for two of the West Shore’s hockey teams.

The Victoria Grizzlies kicked things off winning back-to-back games during the sixth annual Bauer British Columbia Hockey League (BCHL) Showcase in Chilliwack over the weekend.

First up, the Grizzlies faced off against the Prince George Spruce Kings. Despite being out shot 41-22, goaltender Zachary Rose tallied his first shut out of the season as the Grizzlies sailed to a 5-0 victory.

It was also a special game for head coach Craig Didmon, who recorded his 100th regular season win.

The Grizzlies notched four points this weekend at the BCHL showcase. Local fans get to catch the team in action during their home opener at The Q Centre on Friday, Sept. 29 versus the Vernon Vipers, and Saturday, Sept. 30 versus the Langley Rivermen.
