VIJHL Wild Card Game and Award Ceremony


Evan Wales

February 10, 2013, Victoria, BC (ISN) – Next Sunday, February 17th there will be a special Wild Card Game between Campbell River Storm and Kerry Park Islanders at Bear Mountain Arena.

The winner of this game will compete as the fourth seed in the North Division and will also gain home-ice advantage in the final for their division. (i.e. if the Storm win, the North team will have home-ice in the final; if Kerry Park wins, then the South team will earn home ice in the final).

We will also be handing out the 2013 VIJHL Awards after the game. I’ve attached an itinerary of what will take place during the game and would love to get the information out there in order to get a great turn out at Bear Mountain.

If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail me or VIJHL president Greg Batters
