The league-leading Victoria Cougars (23-4-2) host the North-division co-leaders Campbell River Storm (17-7-2-2) on Thursday (Dec. 12).

Face off is 7 p.m. at Archie Browning Sports Centre.

The Storm are as streaky a team as it gets in the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League. The team had six wins in a row in November but ended the month with a tie and two OT losses. Now they’ve started up again and are 2-0 in December while outscoring opponents 11-0.

The game will see the Cougars continue its holiday Toy Drive. Fans are asked to bring an unwrapped toy or a monetary donation to that game.

Fans who donate are entered to win a first-intermission draw for a prize pack of Cougars hockey tickets and a pizza.

The Toy Drive continues at the Cougars home games Sunday, Dec. 15 and Thursday, Dec. 19, against the Westshore Wolves and Saanich Braves, respectively.

All toys and monies received will be delivered by the Cougars players to the Paediatric Ward of the Victoria General Hospital and Santa’s Anonymous.
