October 10 weekend

The Storm are preparing to leave on their first long road trip of the season. They will meet  the Golden Rockets on Friday and the Columbia Valley Rockies on Saturday.  The Storm are looking forward to the trip as they want to continue to extend their excellent start. 

On Friday we will be Golden in the second and possibly last meeting of the season. 

The first meeting with Golden resulted in a suspension to Luke Gordon, and he will miss the rematch as he serves the last game of his 3 game suspension. Luke will have company in the stands as it looks like Spencer Schoech will also miss the next two games due to a suspension. Max James will likely not play due to an injury in practice and Kyle Michalovsky is still on he mend from an injury a couple of weeks ago.

On Saturday the team will meet the Columbia Valley Rockies for the first time  The second meeting will be in Kamloops Dec 7.  Playing teams in the other conferences are hard to gauge as we have not seen the Rockies in 2 seasons. Despite a manpower shortage the Storm feel confident on a successful weekend. 

 Addison Bazian will be back in the lineup after a bout with the flu and hopes to get back on track.  Jason Anderson won't likely be back this weekend as he awaits further news on an injury he suffered in Princeton. The defence remains a little beat up and the team will need Matt Dimor and Myles Jarvis Rorison to play a lot of minutes to give Wood, Buchanan and Dumont some time to regroup.  The Storm continue to have one of the best defences in the league despite being shorthanded.
Next home action is Sunday October 20 at 5 pm when we take on the Chase Heat
