Linden to drop first puck at Yetis Alumni Game

Captain Canuck in town Thursday for appearance at Glacier Kings' reunion

TREVOR LINDEN IS scheduled to drop the opening puck at Thursday night's Glacier Kings' Alumni Game.

The Yetis of yore are lacing ’em up once more.

Thursday night, the Comox Valley Glacier Kings are holding an Alumni Game at the Comox Valley Sports Centre, with some blasts from the past ready to relive their Jr. B glory days and entertain spectators in Arena No. 1.

Adding more magic to the memorable evening, “Captain Canuck” Trevor Linden is scheduled to drop the first puck. The opening ceremonies and introductions start at 7:10 p.m. Advance tickets are at First Insurance and will also be available at the door.

Among the alumni will be Curtus Larson (1998-2002), Dennis Barna (1994-95), Bryce Hansen (1994-95), Rob Woods (1999-2000), Troy Weed (1993-95), Hugh Gurney (1993-95), Broc Churchill (1993-96), Scott Zaichowsky (1995-97) and Dustin Frame (2000-01).

Organizers say Paul Weed will coach one team with guest coach Bill Rotheisler. Tony Wishart will coach the other team with guest coaches Cam Knox and Mark McNaughton.

Between periods, players from the CVMHA Initiation Program will skate in a mini-game.

League Play

The Glacier Kings had their seven-game Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League winning streak snapped on the weekend as they lost 1-0 to the Peninsula Panthers on Oct. 13 and 2-1 to the Oceanside Generals on Oct. 14

Despite the losses, goalie Josh Round was strong between the pipes for the Icemen. He was the game’s second star on Saturday, making 30 saves, and earned third star honours on Sunday when he turned aside 45 shots.

The Glacier Kings return to VIJHL action Saturday when they host the Nanaimo Buccaneers in a 7:30 p.m. start at the Sports Centre.

The Bucs are in second place in the North Division and riding a two-game winning streak while the division-leading Yetis will be looking to regain their scoring touch.
