Believe it or not, hockey season is back!
It happened in a flash, but this Friday marks the Victoria Royals’ first home game of the season.
The boys in blue will hit the ice for their home opener at Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre this Friday, September 23rd versus the Spokane Chiefs.
Puck drop is at 7:05 p.m., and from connecting with Marty himself, to high-fives with the players and even an exclusive deal on tickets, there’s a ton in store that evening that you won’t want to miss.
The cherry on top?
We here at Victoria Buzz have scored you an exclusive deal on tickets to the game—only $15 each!—but there’s only a limited amount available, so make sure you grab yours today.
The tickets are only available online, and are valid in sections 104 to106 and 112 to 114. You can snag yours here!
The Royals are starting off their 12th season with a team made up of some veterans and some fresh faces.
San Jose Sharks draft pick, Gannon Laraque is the team’s new captain following Tarun Fizer aging out of the WHL and moving on to play in the American Hockey League for the Colorado Eagles.
Austin Zemlak, Brayden Schuurman and Kalem Parker are another three players who will bring their collective experiences into leadership roles with the team this year.
Shuurman and Parker both represented Canada at the IIHF U18 World Hockey Championships this summer while Zemlak was named to Team Canada’s Selection Camp roster for the 2022 Hlinka Gretzky Cup.
A two game homestand against the Spokane Chiefs will open the regular season for the Royals this year.
After their home opener the Royals will have 15 promotional nights and other themed games including their annual Canadian Forces Appreciation night on November 19th, Pink in the Rink on February 10th and Star Wars Day on March 26th.
Come cheer on the boys in blue this as they kick off their 2022 /23 season this weekend—we’ll see you there!
