Chiefs/Grizz: Quick Hits


Chilliwack Chiefs (5-14-1-2, 5th in Mainland Division) VS Victoria Grizzlies (12-7-2-1, 2nd in Island Division)(Friday, November 15th,  Prospera Centre –  6:30 pregame/7pm faceoff on 89.5 The Drive)

– These two have met once before, a 6-2 Grizzlies victory in Victoria on October 20th. The Grizzlies jumped out to an early 2-0 lead in that game and never looked back. Bill Bestwick’s club is right behind Powell River for the top spot in the Island Division, and would no doubt like to get a three game Mainland trip off to a good start. Chilliwack recently snapped a five game losing streak with a win over Surrey last Saturday night on home ice, only the second time they’ve sent the fans at Prospera home happy. With two more home games this weekend, the Chiefs are hoping to start something here, and with 17 goals for in 3 games, they’re feeling it offensively for the first time all year.

– While Chilliwack will try to be aggresive at the offensive end, it leaves opportunities for the other team, and with Gerry and Myles Fitzgerald, along with Jesse Schultz, the Grizzlies have some top flight forwards to deal with. Gerry and Myles may be missing their brother Leo, but are cruising along just fine as they lead the team in points. You may not be able to stop those two, but containing them will play a big role in weather or not the Chiefs secure two points.

– Harvey Smyl noted yesterday how active the Victoria defensemen are, and that they would have to make note of that tonight. The back end, like Chilliwack’s, can produce points. Brandon Egli, Jacob Kearley, and Mitch Meek have all reached double figures in points through 22 games.

– As I type this, I’m unsure as to who starts in goal tonight for the Chiefs. Spencer Tremblay joined his new teammates at practice this week, along with Josh Halpenny and Lyndon Stanwood. Halpenny was given the nod for both games last weekend against Surrey. Lyndon Stanwood started that October 20th game in Victoria, but was hooked after three goals allowed through 27 minutes. Regardless of who starts in net, the Chiefs will have to be good from the goaltender on out if they hope to make it consecutive wins for just the second time this season.
