The team that had given up the most goals in the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League didn’t allow any Sunday afternoon in Parksville.

The Comox Valley Glacier Kings blanked the Oceanside Generals 3-0 behind the 17-save effort of Blake Pearson. The win evened the Yetis’ record at .500 and kept them just one point back of the Campbell River Storm in the battle for second place in the North Division.

First-star Sheldon Brett continued his hot scoring touch with two goals and one assist while Jonas Harvath netted the other marker.

Brett is now tied for second in league scoring with 11 goals and 11 assists through 16 games.

The game was scoreless through two periods, with Comox Valley out-shooting Oceanside 19-15. But the Yetis owned the third period, out-shooting the Generals 13-2 and getting tallies from Brett and Harvath before Brett’s unassisted empty-netter sealed the deal with no time showing on the game clock.

The Glacier Kings have this weekend off then close out the October portion of their regular season schedule with games Oct. 26 at home against the Westshore Stingers and Oct. 31 at Nanaimo against the Buccaneers.

 

ICE CHIPS Pearson was the game’s second star and Liam Peel of Oceanside was third star … the Generals have hired Lou Gravel of Comox as general manager … he will be in charge of hockey operations, including finding a head coach for the 2-13-1 North Division cellar dwellers … the Glacier Kings are tied for 22nd in the Oct. 20 poll of the top B.C. Jr. B teams (based on winning percentage) … Victoria (12-1-0-1) is second and Nanaimo (12-2-0-0) third …
