Kodiaks open new junior hockey season Sept. 6

Season home opener features Mission City Outlaws against hometown Aldergrove Kodiaks

The Aldergrove Kodiaks, the three-time Pacific Junior Hockey League champions, host their home season opener this Wednesday, Sept. 6, against the Mission City Outlaws at Aldergrove Arena. Game time is 7:15 p.m.

The Kodiaks were the top team in the league in the past season with an impressive 36 wins in 43 games. It was their third championship in nine seasons.

This year will be a new team, however, as many of last year’s top players have aged out of the league. Their only confirmed player from last season is forward Kyle Bosko.

The Kodiaks hosted their evaluation camp July 17-20 at Langley Sportsplex and have four exhibition games before the regular season opens. The Kodiaks were defeated 4-3 in overtime by Mission Outlaws on Augg. 20 and 51 by Delta Ice Hawks on Aug. 27. Remaining exhibition games are Aug. 30 at Richmond Sockeyes and Sept. 1 at North Vncouver Wolf Pack.

The Harold Brittain conference has been expended to six teams this season, with the addition of the Langley Trappers playing out of George Preston Rec Centre. The Kodiaks, along with the Abbotsford Pilots, Mission Outlaws, Ridge Meadows Flames and Surrey Knights make up the rest of the division.

On the Tom Shaw conference side it reaims five teams with the Delta Ice Hawks, Grandview Steelers, North Vancouver Wolf Pack, Port Moody Panthers and Richmond Sockeyes making up the division.

The Koiaks’ home games this upcoming month include Mission Outlaws on Sept. 6, Abbotsford Pilots on Sept. 13, Ridge Meadows Flames on Sept. 20 and Surrey Knights on Sept. 27. All game times are 7:15 p.m.
