The Selkirk College Saints will celebrate their 2013-14 BC Intercollegiate Hockey League championship at its home opener on Friday night.

The Saints will hoist their second BCIHL championship banner to the rafters of the Castlegar Complex when they host the University of Eastern Washington Eagles.

However, the Saints are off to a bit of a slow start  dropping their opening match to the Eagles in a 4-3 shootout on Oct. 3, and following that up with a 6-2 setback to Simon Fraser and a 5-4 loss to Trinity Western on Friday and Saturday respectively.

The Saints are riddled with local talent including Trail natives Mike, Jamie, and Danny Vlanich, Ryan Edwards and Logan Proulx, as well as Fruitvale’s Arie Postmus, and Jesse Knowler of Castlegar.

Puck drop for the Selkirk College Saints versus Eastern Washington University goes at 7 p.m. at the Castlegar Rec Complex on Friday.
