The Comox Valley Glacier Kings kicked off the new year in style Sunday, defeating Peninsula Panthers 3-1 in a Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League match at the Comox Valley Sports Centre.

The win improved the Icemen’s record to a league-best 25-0-7-1. The hosts led 2-0 after one period and 2-1 after two. Kelin Hrycuik scored his 26th goal of the year, tying him for first place overall. Goalie Cam Waddington picked up an assist on the pay.

Mitch Ball’s 20th of the year gave the Yetis a two-goal lead. The Panthers netted the only goal of the middle stanza as Evan Campbell beat Waddington with a power-play marker. Corey Allen’s 15th of the year put the icing on the cake in the third.

Peninsula outshot Comox Valley 32-27, with Waddington picking up the win as well as third-star honours. Hrycuik was the game’s second star.
