2019-20 BCMML Standings

Weekend Preview: Ice vs. Rockets

October 24, 2014

The Okanagan Rockets (6-2-0) host the Kootenay Ice (2-6-0) at the Capital News Centre this weekend.  The games are set for 3:00 pm on Saturday, and 10:00 am on Sunday. 

Last Weekend:  The Rockets were 6-4 and 4-3 winners over the North Island Silvertips in Nanaimo while the Ice were 7-0 and 11-7 losers to the surging Valley West Hawks in Nelson. 

When we saw you Last: The Rockets defeated the Ice in all 4 match-up's during the 2013-2014 season. The Rockets won 6-0, 12-0, 8-0, and 8-1. Add it all up and the Rockets outscored the Ice 32-1 in the four games. 

Streak Buster: Cory Prevost's goal at 18:33 of the 2nd period on December 8th proved to be the lone goal the Ice scored against the Rockets last season.  The shutout streak was stopped just 21:27 away from 8 full games. The Rockets shutout streak against Ice lasted an incredible 544 minutes and 18 seconds. 

Home Cooking: The Rockets started the 14-15 season with a six game home stand before finally going on the road to Nanaimo last weekend.  They now return home to begin a second six game home stand as they will play host to the Ice, Canadians, and Hawks.  The Rockets are currently 4-2-0 on home ice this season. 

Will be Missed: The Rockets said good by to Sam DeMelo for the remainder of the season this week as he underwent season ending shoulder surgery.  The procedure was a complete success and Sam will be able to resume all hockey activities by the spring.  DeMelo was a late cut this fall of the BCHL's Salmon Arm Silverbacks. 

Welcome Aboard:  With DeMelo shut down, the Rockets added 16 year old defenceman Nick Higgs to their roster for the remainder of the season.  Higgs had appeared in 5 games already with the Rockets this season as an AP. 

Leaders of the Pack: Marcus Mitchell leads all BCMML players in goals with 11.  In just 8 games this season, Mitchell leads the Rockets in scoring with 19 points.  Ellis Junker, a 16 year old forward for the Ice leads the club in both goals (3) and points (8) in the club's first 8 games. Valley West's Trevor Ayre leads Mitchell by 3 points for the BCMML scoring lead. 

Alumni Watch: Parker Bowles, now in his 3rd full season with the Tri-City Americans, leads the Ams with 6 goals and 10 assists for 16 points in 13 games.  Bowles posted 71 points in 40 games for the Rockets back in the 11-12 season. 

Historically Speaking: Since 2006, the Rockets are 28-3-1 versus the Ice, including a record of 14-1-1 at the Capital News Centre.
