Kootenay Ice: ICE CHIPS

By pbadmin

WHL Player of the Week:
Our very own, Jaroslav Svoboda, was named the Sprint Canada WHL Player of the Week after notching 2 goals and 6 assists in his last three games. This is the second time in his career and the sixth player in franchise history to achieve this honor.
First Time Ever:
For the first time in franchise history, the Kootenay Ice have won a regular season game against their arch nemesis, The Calgary Hitmen.
Top Guns:
The line of Svoboda (2-6-8), Green (4-2-6) and Blatny (3-3-6) has combined for twenty points during the three game unbeaten streak.
Forward Tyler Beechey will be out of the lineup for two to three weeks with a shoulder injury. Graham Belak left after the first period in the game against Calgary yet there is no word on his injury. Dean Arsene returned to the lineup after missing three games with the flu.
Where We Stand:
The Kootenay Ice are tied for second place with Lethbridge for the second spot in the Central Division with 20 points. The Calgary Hitmen are still in first with 27 points. The Ice are 8-5-4-0 so far this year.
