Grizzlies on fire

West Shore team among hottest in league heading into final week of January

The Q Centre welcomes back one of the hottest teams in the  British Columbia Hockey League Saturday, Jan. 23.

Following a tough December that saw the Victoria Grizzlies go 3-5 for the month, the up-and-down season continues with a successful but gruelling January.

Despite numerous back-to-back games, the West Shore squad has battled, riding a 5-0 January record that saw them outscoring their opposition 28 goals to 8 over the two-week span. Heading  into a stretch where  the team plays four of their next five games at home, the streaking team has an opportunity to improve their 19 win, 20 regulation loss and three overtime loss record and jockey for a playoff position. They currently sit fourth in the Island division with 42 points. Brayden Gelsinger is currently in the top 15 in league scoring with 51 points.

Game starts at 7 p.m. at The Q Centre.
