Liam 'Crash' Nijhoff attempts to charge past Westshore Wolf goalie Austin Roden helping the Glacier Kings to a 5-1 victory on Sept. 12. The Yetis' next home game is Sept. 19 against the Peninsula Panthers with game time 7:30 p.m. at Sports Centre Arena #1.

Glacier Kings grab two impressive wins

The Comox Valley Glacier Kings enjoyed a much more productive second week of Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League play than their first one, as they picked up a pair of impressive victories.

On Sept. 12 at the Comox Valley Sports Centre, the Yetis whipped the Westshore Wolves 5-1 behind goals by second star Kyle Wade, Tyson Slater, Curtis Csuk, Liam Nijhoff and first star Justin Mirabelli.

Paul Broadbent earned the win in net as the G-Kings outshot the Wolves 27-23.  Sheldon Brett was the game’s third star.

Special teams were impressive for the home team as the Icemen went 1-for-2 on the power play and killed off five Westshore power plays.

On Sept. 10 the Glacier Kings were in Nanaimo where they skated to a convincing 6-2 win over the Buccaneers.

First star Grayden McInnes led the way with two goals and one assist while Slater (1g, 1a) earned second star honours. Grant Isles added three helpers. The visitors led 2-0 after one period and 4-1 after two.

McReynolds, Slater, Nijhoff and Jake McKenzie had the other Comox Valley tallies.

Broadbent was the winning goalie as the Yetis outshot the Bucs 37-28 and went 2-for-7 on the power play. Nanaimo was 1-for-6 with the man advantage.

Comox Valley is now 2-1-0-1 on the young 2015-16 season and in second place in the North Division, three points back of undefeated Campbell River Storm (4-0-0-0).

The G-Kings will be busy over the next few days. On Sept. 18 they are in Saanich to play the Braves and on Sept. 19 they host the Peninsula Panthers (7:30 p.m. Sports Centre Arena #1).

 

On Sept. 22 they are home to Oceanside Generals (7 p.m. SC #1).
