The Victoria Royals open a two-game set with the Kelowna Rockets tonight (Oct. 14) and Saturday, 7:05 p.m. at Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre.
This week also marks the release of Royals’ official replica hockey jerseys for purchase. Jerseys go on sale prior to tonight’s matchup beginning at 5:30 p.m. in the Royals’ Court merchandise store at Gate 1.
Youth ($90) and adult size ($115) jerseys are available in both the road white and home blue colours.
The Royals are coming off a rough weekend having lost three of four. During the stint the Royals were victimized by last week’s CHL player of the week Emerson Etem, who led the Medicine Hat Tigers with five goals during the Tigers’ two game visit to Victoria, Oct. 6 and 7.
Etem, an Anaheim Ducks prospect from Long Beach, Calif., added another goal on Oct. 8 as the Tigers beat the Vancouver Giants, 5-4.
The Royals are third in the B.C. Division with four wins in nine games.
