Glacier Kings drop exhibition games

Icemen now preparing for start of 2014-15 VIJHL regular season this weekend

It was a “Gimme Five” weekend at the Comox Valley Sports Centre, and the Comox Valley Glacier Kings were the ones giving out the fives.

The Yetis dropped a pair of Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League pre-season exhibition games, 5-2 to the Oceanside Generals on Saturday and 5-0 to the Nanaimo Buccaneers on Sunday.

Saturday’s game was tied 2-2 after the first period and the visitors scored three unanswered goals in the second.

The Icemen out-shot the Generals 28-26.

It was another matinee match-up Sunday when the Bucs hit town, and they out-shot the G-Kings 29-26 en route to the 5-0 win.

Nanaimo led 1-0 after one period and 3-0 after two.

The Glacier Kings will be hoping for better things this weekend as they open the 2014-15 VIJHL regular season with a pair of games.

They are away to the Campbell River Storm on Friday then host Kerry Park Islanders on Saturday, with game time 7:30 p.m. at SC Arena #1.
