Duncan, BC – After a successful pre-season, the Cowichan Capitals are set to open up the 2015-16 BCHL regular season at home this Friday, September 11th hosting the Victoria Grizzlies at the Island Savings Centre.
It’s the second straight season the Capitals host the Grizzlies for the home opener, looking to repeat last year’s initial win.
