Things to do

In case you haven’t heard, the Victoria Royals are off to their best start in franchise history, and currently occupy a position in the Western Hockey League fit for royalty: first place.

After a road-laden October schedule, the Royals have seven games at the Save-On-Foods Memorial Arena this month. Come check out the league’s top squad!

Team records are Wins – Losses – Overtime Losses – Shootout Losses.

Friday, November 3rd vs. Kelowna Rockets

  • Enemy Record: 7-5-2-1, 2nd in BC Division
  • Why: Simple. So far the Royals and Rockets are the only teams in the BC Division who have posted a winning record above .500, and early indications suggest if any team will challenge Victoria for the BC Division title, it will be Kelowna. Victoria will enter the contest with a 2-game winning streak, while Kelowna hasn’t lost in three games. Who’s streak will end?

Saturday, November 4th vs. Kelowna Rockets

  • Enemy Record: 7-5-2-1, 2nd in BC Division
  • Why: Because it’s Turn Back the Clock night! The Royals will be wearing vintage sweaters that will be auctioned off for charity. Fans are invited to wear 80’s costumes and prizes will be awarded to the best costumes. Oh – and the second half of back-to-back matchups can be pretty rambunctious.

Friday, November 10th vs. Edmonton Oil Kings

  • Enemy Record: 5-8-2-0, 5th in Central Division
  • Why: Victoria’s only game against the Oil Kings this year was a thriller played out in Alberta. Victoria took an early 2-0 lead, but Edmonton clawed their way back and forced overtime. Captain Matthew Phillips took matters into his own hands, scoring with 5 seconds left in overtime with an unassisted effort. The Royals are atop the standings and the Oil Kings are struggling. You can bet Edmonton will show up with plenty of oomph.

Tuesday, November 14th vs. Red Deer Rebels

  • Enemy Record: 8-7-1-0, 1st in Central Division
  • Why: It’s Victoria Buzz night! You can head to our Facebook page for info on how to win tickets. Red Deer currently sits atop the Central Division standings, with an 8-7-1-0 record through 14 games. On top of that, former Royal Jared Dmitriw will make his first appearance against his former club after being traded this past off-season. The Rebels can score, but they also have a leaky defense. It could very possibly be a high scoring affair.

Tuesday, November 21st vs.  Lethbridge Hurricanes

  • Enemy Record: 7-6-1-0, 3rd in Central Division
  • Why: Victoria and Lethbridge will clash twice this season, with this match at Save-On and two weeks later in Lethbridge. Diehard Vancouver Canucks fans could be interested in this game, as the Hurricanes possess a Canuck draft pick from 2015, Tate Olson. Lethbridge has been hovering around .500 for most of the season – will they be able to withstand the Royals’ ruthless attack?

Friday, November 24th vs. Seattle Thunderbirds

  • Enemy Record: 8-5-0-1, 4th in US Division
  • Why: The U.S. Division (the other Western Conference division) is particularly strong this year, with 4/5 teams posting winning records at the time of publication. Every point the Royals can deny American teams will mean a more favorable opponent in the playoffs.
  • Puck drop: 7:05pm.

Saturday, November 25th vs. Seattle Thunderbirds

  • Enemy Record: 8-5-0-1, 4th in US Division
  • Why: Round two. Other than the back-to-back matchups against Kelowna November 3rd and 4th, these two games are the only other set of back-to-backs in November. The second half of these matchups always have some extra oomph, as team’s look for revenge following the Friday match. Let the battle continue!
