Players get focused for faceoff

Nanaimo Clippers centreman Zach Martin takes a faceoff against the Powell River Kings earlier this month. The teams play again Friday (Oct. 1).

The Nanaimo Clippers are getting lots of game action to find their form.

The city’s B.C. Hockey League team plays its third game of the week tonight (Oct. 1) when the Powell River Kings visit Frank Crane Arena.

It will be the fourth game in eight days for the Clippers. They play tomorrow night, too, facing the Alberni Valley Bulldogs Saturday on the road.

All this hockey is a good thing early in the season, said defenceman Graeme McCormack.

“We can focus on a lot of things and we can put them into effect,” he said. “Like positioning in your own end and some power play and penalty kill. The best time to practise that is in a game situation.”

GAME ON … Friday’s game is a 7:10 p.m. faceoff at Frank Crane Arena … On Saturday the Clippers and Alberni Valley Bulldogs face off at 7 p.m. at Port Alberni’s Weyerhaeuser Arena.
