Nanaimo Clippers forward Sheldon Rempal celebrates a goal against the Trail Smoke Eaters on Friday at Frank Crane Arena.

Forward on fire as Clippers roll

The Nanaimo Clippers won all three of their games last week and Sheldon Rempal was the first star in every one, scoring seven goals.

With their best player at the top of his game, the Nanaimo Clippers can’t be beat.

The Clips won all three of their games last week and Sheldon Rempal was the first star in every one, scoring seven goals over that span.

Nanaimo handled the Victoria Grizzlies 5-1 on Wednesday at Frank Crane Arena, trounced the Trail Smoke Eaters 7-2 two nights later at home, and then edged the Cowichan Valley Capitals 4-3 on Saturday in Duncan.

Rempal had the game-winning goal in overtime against the Caps to complete his hat trick and a remarkable week. His 26 goals lead the B.C. Hockey League and he is one point off the league scoring lead with 53 points in 27 games.

“It’s definitely fun to be up there and competing with the other guys around the league,” Rempal said. “Obviously you look at it, but you don’t want to think too much of it and get off your game … It’s about winning games here and doing it as a team.”

Nanaimo outshot Cowichan 34-22. Edwin Hookenson also scored, Matt Hoover had three assists and Evan Johnson was the winning goalie.

GAME ON … The Clippers play just one game this week, Friday (Nov. 27) on the road at Victoria.
