KAMLOOPS — The Kamloops Blazers have changed their game time on Saturday, March 11th to 5:00pm against the Vancouver Giants. The game was originally scheduled to start at 7:00pm.

President & Chief Operating Officer, Don Moores had this statement in regards to the game time change.

“We have made the game time change for a few reasons. We had an influx in our attendance on Friday, November 11th and Saturday, December 31st with a start time at 5:00pm. Going back to last season, we had a sold out crowd on a Saturday night with a 5:00pm start time when Kamloops hosted Hockey Day in Canada. We believe the early start time is beneficial to encourage young families to attend, while also having minimal effect on our loyal season ticket holders and volunteers.”
