Comox Valley Glacier Kings alternate captain Jack Kennelly has been added to the long term injury list.
On Dec. 20, the the Glacier Kings announced they and Kennelly have opted for surgery with respect to an upper body injury.
The 20-year-old veteran forward will be out of the lineup for six to eight weeks.
Head coach Bill Rotheisler says Kennelly's presence on the ice will be missed, but Rotheisler is confident
the team has the necessary assets that will continue to keep the Glacier Kings on pace to reclaim the North Division's number one spot.
Kennelly was instrumental in the Glacier Kings' recent win over Oceanside, scoring four goals and one assist.
The Glacier Kings remain committed to Kennelly during his rehabilitation, and welcome his return upon medical clearance.
