Glacier Kings lose two

The Comox Valley Glacier Kings lost 6-0 Thursday to the host Nanaimo Buccaneers.

Then on Saturday at the Comox Valley Sports Centre, the Yetis lost 4-2 to the Campbell River Storm. The visitors were up 2-0 at the end of the first period. Less than a minute into the second, rookie defender Mauro D’Alessandro got the home side on the board, with assists from Benjamin Bretell and Willie Daigneault.

Campbell River made it 3-1 at the 9:30 mark of the third, but D’Alessandro struck again at 11:06, with Jake McKenzie assisting. But the visitors struck again at 14:10 with a power play goal.

D’Alessandro earned first star honours while Kings forward Damian Rennie, also a rookie, was selected third star.
