Comox Valley Glacier Kings return to regular season action

After hosting VIJHL All Star Classic, Yetis play Oceanside Generals twice this weekend

Fresh from hosting the 2015 VIJHL All Star Classic, the Comox Valley Glacier Kings return to regular season action this weekend with a home-and-away series with the Oceanside Generals.

The Generals are in Courtenay on Friday (7 p.m. Sports Centre #1) with the Yetis repaying the visit to Parksville on Saturday. Oceanside (6-30-2-1) sits last in the North Division while the Glacier Kings (19-14-1-5) are in third place.

The Jan. 18 All Star Classic was an unusually low-scoring all-star game, with Team North prevailing 6-4 over Team South. The teams were tied 1-1 after one and 3-3 after two.

Liam Shaw (Comox Valley) tallied twice for Team North (including a penalty shot) and added one assist to earn game MVP honours while Grant Isles (Comox Valley), Jordan Levesque (Nanaimo), Chad Bell (Nanaimo) and Dan Feeney (Campbell River) had the other goals.

Seamus Maguire led Team South with a pair of goals while Cory Petersen (West Shore) and Jamie Severs (West Shore) added one each. Maguire was Team South MVP while former Glacier Kings goalie Blake Pearson (now with Westshore) was Team North MVP.

VIJHL president Myles Parsons felt the 2015 All Star Classic went well. “The banquet was well attended, and a great experience for all who were there,” he said. “The game was a showcase of these young men’s skills and talents, the over 500 fans at the Comox Valley Sports Centre were not disappointed.”

On All Star Classic Eve (Jan. 17), the Icemen dropped a 5-3 decision to the Saanich Braves in Courtenay. The teams were tied 2-2 after one period, but the Braves banged in three unanswered second-period goals to sway things in their favour.

Shaw (second star), Lucas Robinson and Graydon McInnes (AP) scored for Comox Valley, who outshot Saanich 25-17. Liam Young played 33:32 minutes in goal (allowing four goals on 12 shots)l and took the loss while backup Zachary Straza played 24:29 (allowing one goal on five shots).
