It’s going to be a pretty interesting week of junior B hockey in Nanaimo.

The Nanaimo Buccaneers have two of their more noteworthy games coming up. Tonight (Jan. 23) the Bucs host the Oceanside Generals for the first time since the Gens hired Bill Bestwick as coach. Tonight’s game is a 7:15 p.m. start at the Nanaimo Ice Centre.

Then on Saturday, the Buccaneers will team up with the junior A Nanaimo Clippers for a Hockey Day in Nanaimo doubleheader at Frank Crane Arena. The Bucs will play the Victoria Cougars in a 3 p.m. faceoff before the Clips take the ice for a 7 p.m. game against the Powell River Kings.

Tickets for the doubleheader are $20 for adults, $15 for seniors, $10 for youths and free for children.

The Buccaneers lost both their games last week, 2-1 to the Comox Valley Glacier Kings last Thursday at the NIC and then 6-3 to the Campbell River Storm up Island the following night.

In the close loss, Rowan Siider scored for the Bucs but the Yetis scored the game-winning goal right after that on a penalty shot. Jackson Jane suffered the loss in goal as his team was outshot 31-25. For more photos from that game, please click here and here.

Against the Storm, Jordan Levesque, Garrett Dunlop and Shane Dial were the Nanaimo goal scorers and Jane again took the 'L' as shots were 46-27 in favour of the weathermen.
