Mark your calendars, Victoria!

Hockey season is on the horizon and today the Victoria Royals have released their full schedule for the 2019-20 Western Hockey League (WHL) regular season.

Though the Royals will begin this year’s season on the road facing the Everett Silvertips on Saturday, September 21st, Victoria’s home opener is set for Friday, September 27th versus the Prince George Cougars.

You can join the Royals for their official homestead kickoff at our very own Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre on September 27th – puck drop is at 7:05 p.m.!

In their longest homestand of the regular season this year, Victoria will remain on home ice for a five-game duration from Friday, October 25th to Saturday, November 2nd – during this time, the team will face the Kamloops Blazers and Kelowna Rockets twice a piece, and the Medicine Hat Tigers once.

The Victoria team will also spend a decent chunk of time away from home this season, their longest road trip including six separate games happening from Friday, January 24th to Saturday, February 1st.

This road trip will include facing the Eastern Conference’s East Division, which consists of the Brandon Wheat Kings, Winnipeg ICE, Saskatoon Blades, Prince Albert Raiders, Regina Pats and the Moose Jaw Warriors.
