Keys From The Bear Cave:
Returning Home:
Alberni Valley forward Jackson Doucet is one of the teams most promising rookies on the team. He also happens to be from Victoria, today, he will be playing his second game against the Grizzlies in The Q Centre. The last time he played here, he scored a goal.

On The Road Struggles:
Alberni Valley has struggled on the road this season, going 3-8-1-0, there is definitely something to be desired. The Grizzlies, who are 5-3-3-0 at home this season will be looking to continue the streak of strong performance at home against a team that has a rocky record.

Front And Centre:
Today’s game will be the only game of the day for the BCHL. And with both teams playing today being part of the close Island Division, you can bet that teams like Powell River, Nanaimo, and Cowichan Valley will be taking an interest in this game.

Matchup Of The Night
              Dayne Finnson                     Vs.                Mitchell Oliver

Today’s matchup of the night includes each teams highest scoring defencemen. Oliver with 17 points this year will be facing Finnson who has 15. These two both like to pass the puck, and it shows in the stat sheet as both players have more assists than goals. The biggest impact these two players make however is when their team goes on the power play, both are the quarterbacks of their respective power plays so if one of the players make an offensive impact it will most likely come on the power play.
