The next home game for the Nanaimo Clippers will be a wild one.

The Wenatchee Wild make their first-ever appearance at Frank Crane Arena this Saturday (Oct. 17).

The American expansion team has found immediate success in the B.C. Hockey League with a 6-3-1 record.

“I think all the boys are pretty excited to take on Wenatchee, the new team. They’ve looked good so far…” said Devin Brosseau, Clippers captain. “We’re looking to let them know who the Nanaimo Clippers are. It should be a fun experience.”

Spencer Hewson, another Clippers veteran, said he’s excited for the game.

“I’ve looked at their roster and I don’t know any of the players on it, so it’s going to be a completely new look for everybody,” he said. “They’ve done well so far so it should be a good challenge.”

GAME ON … The Clippers and Wild face off Saturday at 6 p.m. Nanaimo also hosts the Chilliwack Chiefs on Sunday at 2 p.m. at Frank Crane.
