Bucs’ one game a big matchup

The Nanaimo Buccaneers play the Campbell River Storm on Thursday (Dec. 11) at the NIC.

The Nanaimo Buccaneers play just one game this week, but that one game might take everything they’ve got.

The Bucs host the North Division’s first-place Campbell River Storm on Thursday (Dec. 11) night. It’s the first meeting between the teams since last week’s blockbuster transactions that sent Nanaimo’s then-leading goal scorer Will McNamara and alternate captain Thor Rosback to Campbell River, with defenceman Joe Gage coming to the Bucs from the Storm.

McNamara made an immediate impact up Island, setting a franchise record with nine points (five goals, four assists) in a single game last Friday in a 17-1 victory over the Oceanside Generals.

This Thursday’s game between the Bucs and the Storm is a 7:15 p.m. faceoff at the Nanaimo Ice Centre. Fans are asked to bring non-perishable food items and new, unwrapped toys to the game for local Christmas charities.
