Coming off two losses last weekend, the Victoria Shamrocks are ready to get back into action when they take on the Burnaby Lakers Friday night at The Q Centre. To give the Shamrocks an extra boost, 4 prominent players will return to the lineup including, Jesse King, Steve Priolo, Rhys Duch, and Tyler Burton.
Shamrocks Nation should need no introduction to these superstars including local prodigies Jesse King and Rhys Duch. King finished 2018 as the third leading scorer in the WLA with 93 points and was an integral part in the Shamrocks Mann Cup win back in 2015. As for Duch, he’s entering his 11th season as a member of the Shamrocks and is looking to improve upon his 5.5 points per game from last season.
Fan favourite Steve Priolo returns to solidify the back end for Victoria. Priolo has 25 points in 29 combined games in the last two seasons, including averaging a point per game in 20 postseason games. Also, making his return to the Shamrocks is Tyler Burton, who will be playing his first WLA game since August 27, 2017. Burton had 2 points in 5 regular season games for the Shamrocks in 2017 and will play a major part in shutting down Lakers forwards Robert Church and Dane Stevens.
