The Victoria Grizzlies did not fail to impress on their annual ‘Teddy Bear toss night’ even when missing their top players, nothing stopped them as they shutout the Salmon Arm Silverbacks. A big part of Victoria’s success was Kyle Dumba, whom stopped all 43 shots he faced. Dumba picked up his first shutout of the season against his former team.
The first period started as the Grizzlies wanted to see the teddy bears fly, with that in their minds they started to set things up in order to score. It wasn’t until 6:36 into the first period that Ryan Nolan would go on to find the back of the net picking up his 13th of the season. With assist coming from Brady MacDonald and Nico Sommerville. 6 minutes later it was Edward Yan who would pot his 4th of the season with assists coming from Marty Westhaver and Charlie Campbell making it 2-0.
No one on either team would be able to find the back of the net as both goalies played extremely well within the 2nd and 3rd period. It was Kyle Dumba who stood out as Salmon Arm tried everything but they could not find the back of the net, It had seemed as Dumba became a brick wall stopping everything that came his way.
The Grizzlies now sit at 3rd in the BCHL behind the Chilliwack Chiefs and the Prince George Spruce Kings.
