The Comox Valley Glacier Kings are poised to be heading into the playoffs on a roll.
They have won their last five Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League regular season games, with only one match remaining – Feb. 23 against the last-place Nanaimo Buccaneers.
The Yetis beat Nanaimo 6-0 at home Feb. 4, and 7-1 on the road Friday, Feb. 10. They then beat Campbell River 7-4 at home on Saturday, Feb. 11, and followed with a 7-2 road victory Tuesday, Feb. 14 over the Kerry Park Islanders.

With just three losses this season, the division-leading Oceanside Generals have clinched the regular season title. The Victoria Cougars have clinched the VIJHL South division. Saanich and Peninsula have also clinched playoff berths.
The Glacier Kings wrap up their regular season at home, Saturday, against the 5-38-1 Buccaneers. Puck drop is 7:30 p.m. at the Comox Valley Sports Centre.
