Tournament arranged for BCHL’s Island Division teams

Powell River, Alberni Valley, Nanaimo, Cowichan Valley and Victoria to play for Island Cup

Sports leagues and teams have to be creative and flexible in this time, and Island Division teams in the BC Hockey League are proving just that.

The Island Cup will feature the Victoria Grizzlies, Cowichan Valley Capitals, Nanaimo Clippers, Alberni Valley Bulldogs and Powell River Kings in a round-robin beginning October 2.

Each club will play 12 round-robin games. Semifinals and finals will be held at the Q Centre in Colwood on dates to be announced.

The tournament will adhere to current BC guidelines and a maximum of 50 people, including players, coaches and scorekeepers, will be in the rinks for the games.

“This is all dependent on the health authorities,” said Grizzlies GM and head coach Craig Didmon. “If it can’t happen, then we will continue practising and training until the start of the regular season.”

The BCHL regular season is targeted to begin December 1.
