VIJHL All-Star Classic goes Jan. 26

Kerry Park Islanders hosting 2014 event in Island Savings Centre in Duncan

The 2014 VIJHL All Star Classic will take place Jan. 26, 2014. The league made the announcement Dec. 19.

The host team is the Kerry Park Islanders with the puck dropping at 3 p.m. at the Island Savings Centre in Duncan. Organizers are looking to present a fast, exciting hockey game to VIJHL fans.

“We’re looking forward to hosting the league this year,” said Kerry Park Islanders owner Mark Osmond. “Since we bought the team last season, our staff and players have worked hard to develop our program and this is a great chance to show fans in the Cowichan Valley what a great game Junior B is.”

The format will see the North Division All-Stars (Comox, Campbell River, Oceanside and Nanaimo) battle the South Division All-Stars (Victoria, Saanich, Peninsula, Westshore and Kerry Park) and it promises to be anyone’s game as the league standings are close.

Each team will be submitting a minimum of three players (two forwards, one defence), with division leaders, Victoria and Nanaimo, getting to choose five (three forwards, two defence).

Tickets are $10 for adults, $8 for seniors/students and $6 for children and will be available at the door.
