October 7, 2005 - ECHL (ECHL) - Victoria Salmon Kings News Release

Victoria, BC - The Victoria Salmon Kings are happy to announce their pre-season exhibition schedule. Victoria will travel to Powell River for two games, Saturday October 15th (8:00pm) and Sunday October 16, 2005 (4:00pm) to play the Senior AAA Powell River Regals. The Regals are two time Allan Cup Champions and are one of the most successful Senior AAA teams in the country.

"The Regals Hockey Club is excited to host the Salmon Kings and look forward to being competitive and putting on a great show. It's going to be an thrilling year for hockey in Powell River and this is a great opportunity to kick off the season," said General Manager of the Regals, Scott Mastrodonato.

The Salmon Kings training camp is now underway and with 28 players in town skating for the first time on the ice at the Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre Friday morning.

"It is important we have a couple of exhibition games to get an opportunity to evaluate the players who will make the Salmon Kings this season," said Bryan Maxwell, Head Coach and General Manager of the Victoria Salmon Kings.

The Regals will be no push over for the Salmon Kings as the 2006 Allan Cup hosts are made up of mostly Collegiate/University and former Professional players who have moved on from playing hockey full time, to pursue family and careers in other occupations.
