The Glacier Kings are fundraising for the Canadian Cancer Society this month by auctioning off their pink warm-up jerseys.

Comox Valley Glacier Kings take two from Oceanside Generals in VIJHL action

Instead of stuffing a Thanksgiving turkey, the Comox Valley Glacier Kings opted to cook the Oceanside Generals’ goose as the Yetis swept a home-and-away series in Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League weekend action.

The Icemen defeated the Generals 7-3 Friday in Courtenay then edged Oceanside 3-2 Saturday in Parksville.

Liam Nijhoff netted the winner on Oct. 10 at Oceanside Place as he tallied the only goal of the third period. The G-Kings led 2-0 just five minutes into the first period on goals by Kyle Keeder and Grayden McInnes. Oceanside pulled even in the second courtesy of Mathieu Jallabert’s two goals.

Oceanside outshot Comox Valley 25-24 with Paul Broadbent picking up the win.

The shots on goal – and final score – were not that close on Oct. 9 as the Glacier Kings outshot the Generals 44-25 en route to a convincing 7-3 win at the Comox Valley Sports Centre.

Kyle Wade scored two goals, including the winner, to earn first star accolades while second star Willie Daigneault and third star Brandon McReynolds  each tallied once. McInnes turned in a solid three-point (1g, 2a) performance with Broadbent earning the win.

The teams were tied 1-1 after one and 2-2 after two, with the Yetis’ special teams taking over in the final frame with a power-play goal by Wade and shorthanded markers by Daigneault and McReynolds.

The victories improved the Icemen’s record to 6-5-0-2 while Oceanside fell to 2-7-1-0. Comox Valley is third in the North Division, two points back of second-place Nanaimo Buccaneers (7-3-1-1) who have a game in hand. The G-Kings have a chance to grab a share of second place on Thursday, Oct. 15 when they visit the Bucs at the Nanaimo Ice Centre.

The Glacier Kings are home on Saturday, Oct. 17 to host the VIJHL’s top team, the Campbell River Storm (8-2-1-1). The puck drops at 7:30 p.m. at Sports Centre Arena #1.

ICE CHIPS The Glacier Kings are dedicating the month of October to all mothers, grandmothers, sisters, aunts and girlfriends … the team is auctioning off their specially designed team sweaters at the end of October and T-shirts are on sale at all their home games, with proceeds donated to the Canadian Cancer Society …
