The Victoria Royals enter the final stretch of the season, with 8 games overall in March. Five of their last six games will be on home ice, as the Royals battle for playoff positioning and get set for the magic of best-of-seven playoff hockey.

Here are 5 home games to check out this March!

Victoria Royals vs. Spokane Chiefs

  • Why: The Royals host the Spokane Chiefs in a rare Tuesday-Wednesday set, and local Oilers fans will have a chance to see Edmonton’s 2017 first rounder Kailer Yamamoto, who has been tearing up the WHL. He has a shocking 47 points in his past 22 games (18 goals, 29 assists).
  • When: Tuesday, March 6th
  • Puck drop: 7:05pm
  • Head-to-head: 1-1-0-0

Victoria Royals vs. Spokane Chiefs

  • Why: The Royals are in the thick of a tight playoff race with the Vancouver Giants, who trail by just two points, but also have two games in hand. The superior team of the two will get a coveted home-ice advantage for the first round of the playoffs, making this Wednesday evening matchup against the Chiefs critical for the Royals. Weekday games understandably get lower attendance than the weekend – come out and support the team!
  • When: Wednesday, March 7th
  • Puck drop: 7:05pm
  • Head-to-head: 1-1-0-0

Victoria Royals vs. Prince George Cougars

  • Why: Get ready for a beauty! It’s Don Cherry Bobblehead night at The Barn on Blanshard and the Royals will be outfitted in these outrageous jerseys as a homage to Coach’s Corner’s longtime host. It’s all an effort to raise awareness and promote organ donation across the country. Don’t miss out on seeing your favourite Royals wearing the epic jerseys picture above! And yes, they will be auctioned.
  • When: Friday, March 9th
  • Puck drop: 7:05pm
  • Head-to-head: 2-2-0-0

Victoria Royals vs. Prince George Cougars

  • Why: The Prince George Cougars are last in the B.C. Division and with the Royals and Vancouver Giants jockeying for first-round home ice advantage, they will need to capitalize on a Prince George team that has won just 22 games so far this year. This game is the final matinee of the season – take in some hockey on a Sunday afternoon!
  • When: Sunday, March 11th
  • Puck drop: 2:05pm
  • Head-to-head: 2-2-0-0

Victoria Royals vs. Everett Silvertips

  • Why: The final game of the 2018/19 season sees a rematch of Victoria’s playoff matchup last year, which featured the longest game in CHL history, a five-overtime heartbreaking loss. The Royals will be looking to send a message to the Silvertips, whose goaltender Carter Hart is among the best in the league, and jump into the playoffs on a high note.
  • When: Saturday, March 17th
  • Puck drop: 7:05pm
  • Head-to-head: 1-1-0-0
