The Glacier Kings returned to regular season action last night with a game in Nanaimo against the Buccaneers, who they are chasing for first place in the North Division. (Game result was unavailable at press time).

The Icemen opened the second half of the season riding a four-game winning streak. At 15-15-2 they are six points back of the 18-13-2 Bucs, who are on a two-game winning streak.

 

The task gets even tougher tomorrow night (Jan. 5) when they host the Saanich Braves (7:30 p.m. Sports Centre Arena #1). The Braves are second in the South Division and second overall with a 24-6-2 record.
