If you’re itching for some B.C. Hockey League action, you’ll have to wait for the Victoria Grizzlies to hit the ice at The Q Centre in Colwood later this month.

The Grizzlies take on the Vernon Vipers for their home opener on Friday, Sept. 29 and then face off against the Langley Rivermen on Saturday, Sept. 30 at The Q Centre. Both games start at 7 p.m.

Don’t be late to the Friday game as pre-game festivities include a tailgate party and barbecue.
