Victoria Grizzlies hit the road before home opener

Pre-game barbecue and tailgate party on Friday, Sept. 29

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.

The Grizzlies hit the road this weekend to take on the Alberni Valley Bulldogs and the Nanaimo Clippers. The team is also on the road next weekend (Sept. 23 and 24) when they take on the Prince George Spruce Kings and the Coquitlam Express.

Two games into the season the Grizzlies are sitting third in the Island division with one win and one loss. Leading is the Nanaimo Clippers (two wins), followed by the Powell River Kings (one win and one overtime loss).
