Selkirk College Saints try to stay perfect

The Saints look to record back-to-back victories on home ice to open the 2013-14 BCIHL regular season this Friday

The Selkirk College Saints look to record back-to-back victories on home ice to open the 2013-14 B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League regular season this Friday when the University of Victoria visits for a 7:30 p.m. faceoff at the Castlegar Recreation Complex.

The Saints are coming off a 7-2 victory over Eastern Washington in their home opener that their power-play explode for five goals on seven opportunities. But Selkirk will look to get more production at even strength this weekend against an opponent they eliminated from the league playoffs in March.

“Every year that I’ve been a part of this league, UVic has a team that is hard working and tough to play against,” says Saints head coach Jeff Dubois. “They’re coming off a tough opening weekend against Thompson Rivers and they’ve had a couple weeks now to make some adjustments and get better, so I’m expecting the same type of tight game that we usually see when they come to town.”

The Vikes dropped both ends of a season-opening doubleheader with the WolfPack at home on September 27th and 28th, losing 6-1 and 6-5. The team is led offensively by former BCHLer Shawn Mueller, who led all BCIHL goal scorers last season with 22 and finished tied for second in points with Saints captain Logan Proulx.

Tickets are available at the door: $8 adults and $5 Selkirk students, staff, seniors, and children 6 and older.
