Glacier Kings' Ben Raffler takes a quick breather at the expense of an Oceanside opponent during VIJHL action at the Sports Centre.

Glacier Kings edge Generals; get swept by Storm

Comox Valley squad remains in third place in VIJHL North Division

Another strong performance between the pipes by Marcus Gloss lifted the Comox Valley Glacier Kings to a 4-3 victory over the Oceanside Generals in Jan. 30 Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League action in Courtenay.

Gloss has been a solid addition to the Yetis’ lineup. On Saturday he stopped 37 shots and earned first-star honours. Second star Nick Novin netted the winner midway through the third period after the teams were tied 2-2 after one and 3-3 after two.

Sheldon Brett, Brandon McReynolds and Jake McKenzie had the other G-Kings’ goals. Mathieu Jallabert tallied twice for the visitors, who out-shot the Icemen 39-31.

On Friday, Jan. 29 the Glacier Kings were in Campbell River where they dropped a 6-1 decision to the Storm. Despite being out-shot 43-26, the Yetis trailed just 2-1 after two periods before the Storm exploded four unanswered goals in the third, chasing Gloss in favour of Braddock Otton with 6:36 left to play. Austin McNeil scored the lone Comox Valley goal.

Shortly after the Storm went up 6-1 while shorthanded, things got somewhat out of hand. With just over three minutes left, the refs handed out 10 10-minute misconducts – five to each team.

The G-Kings have five regular season games remaining. Next up is a Feb. 4 tilt in Nanaimo followed by a two-game home stand (Feb. 6 and Feb. 8) against the Storm.

ICE CHIPS The Yetis (17-22-0-4) remain third in the North Division, six points back of second-place Nanaimo (20-17-1-3) who have two games in hand … the Storm (33-6-2-2) continue to battle South Division leaders Victoria Cougars (35-4-1-1) for best overall record …
