Coming Right Back: Vernon Tonight

Chilliwack Chiefs (0-1-0-0) VS Vernon Vipers (1-0-0-0)

(Prospera Centre  –  5:30 pregame/6 pm faceoff on 89.5 The Drive)

As you know by now, things didn’t go well last night for the Chiefs in a 6-1 loss to the Powell River Kings in their opening game. The positive here is the team won’t have to stew over it for a week before their next game. On the other hand, the test doesn’t get easier, as the RBC Cup host Vernon Vipers pay a visit.

Vernon had a much more successful opening game at the Showcase, scoring five times in the third period en route to a 7-3 victory over the Surrey Eagles. Vernon enters the season ranked 5th in the country thanks to the rebuild of talent and skill after a down year last season.

There’s one familiar face in former Surrey Eagle Demico Hannoun – part of the Adam Tambellini trade last winter. Hannoun is expected to be a big part of the O for Jason Williamson this year, along with former Vee Dexter Dancs, and Liam Coughlin, who scored twice last night to earn the game’s first star. Veteran goaltender Danny Todosychuk is back, but Austin Smith may get the start for the Vipes tonight.

Lyndon Stanwood may get the call in goal this evening for the Chiefs, as he and Josh Halpenny will battle to see who gets the bulk of the starts this year. It comes down to effort and compete level for the Chiefs tonight, as they simply didn’t have any of that on Saturday.

There will be a skate with the team after the game. Skate rentals will be available.
