November 27, 2012, Victoria, BC – The Victoria Royals will host the Moose Jaw Warriors tonight at Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre in a Tuesday night match-up. The meeting marks the only time during the 2012-13 WHL regular season that the two teams will clash. Puck drop is scheduled for 7:05 p.m.
Tonight marks the final game of a six-game homestand for Victoria. Sitting in third place in the B.C. Division standings with a 13-12-0-0 record, the Royals will look to import forward Alex Gogolev, who is currently riding a nine-game point streak, as they battle for two more points before heading to Prince George on Friday. Moose Jaw, now 8-11-3-4 and occupying the sixth spot in the East Division, will rely on defenceman Morgan Rielly as they try to record the first win of their current seven-game road swing. Rielly, selected fifth overall by the Toronto Maple Leaves in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, has 22 points (4g-18a) through 26 games so far this season.
