Nanaimo Clippers fans will get their first glimpes this week at what’s to come this season.
The city’s B.C. Hockey League team takes the ice for two home pre-season games – Wednesday (Sept. 2) against the Victoria Grizzlies and Friday against the Cowichan Valley Capitals.
The Clips got the pre-season started Saturday on the road against the Alberni Valley Bulldogs, losing 5-2. Ryan Coghlan and Charley Borek scored goals.
The night before was the Rhodesie Cup intrasquad game, a 7-4 win for Team Black in which Sheldon Rempal scored a hat trick.
Both home exhibitions this week face off at 7 p.m. at Frank Crane Arena.
