Victoria Royals return to home ice with back-to-back games against Kamloops Blazers


The Victoria Royals are gearing up for an exciting two-game series on home ice at the Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre, hosting the Kamloops Blazers this Tuesday and Wednesday.

The Royals are looking to replicate their prior success against the Blazers earlier in the season where they secured a solid 4-1 victory in Kamloops back in October.

Justin Kipkie will play his 100th WHL game tonight, all proudly played for the Victoria Royals.

Kipkie, the Arizona Coyotes’ fifth-round pick, boasts an impressive track record of five goals and 14 assists in the 24 games he’s played this season.

Meanwhile, the Blazers have faced a challenging season so far, languishing at the bottom of the Western Conference with 17 points from six wins in 24 games.

For the Royals, their recent road trip saw a tough 8-1 loss to the Spokane Chiefs.

Despite a spirited effort, Reggie Newman’s lone goal couldn’t counter the Chiefs’ scoring prowess, with multiple players contributing to their victory.

Goalkeeper Jayden Kraus faced 34 shots during the game.

With the Royals returning to their home ice, they’ll be eager to bounce back from their recent defeat and come out with a strong performance against the struggling Blazers.

The puck drops at 7:05 p.m. with doors at the Save-on-Foods Memorial Centre opening at 6 p.m. with weekday pricing in play.

Tickets start at $10 and if you’re planning to have dinner at the rink, hot dogs are priced at $3 each, plus Lucky branded beer will only cost $5.
