Grizz bring .500 record into hockey home opener

BCHL returns to Colwood Friday when the Grizzlies host the Alberni Valley Bulldogs

Forced by the B.C. Hockey League schedule to play their first four games on the road, the Victoria Grizzlies finally get a chance to strut their stuff for the home fans Friday (Oct. 3) at The Q Centre.

The Grizzlies (2-2) host the Alberni Valley Bulldogs (1-2) in a 7 p.m. game.

Coming off a pair of road losses,  4-3 to Nanaimo on Saturday and 5-3 to Cowichan Valley last Friday, Victoria faces the league’s top-scoring defenceman in Kurt Gosselin (seven points in three games).

The Grizzlies are led by Dane Gibson (one goal, four assists in four games), plus Garrett Forster, Matthew Kennedy, Jay Mackie and Cole Pickup, each of whom have four points.

Rookie goaltender Michael Stiliadis has played three of the four games for the Grizzlies, posting a 2-1 record and recording a 2.97 goals against average and .908 save percentage.
