The Canada-Russia series continues as Team Russia moves onto the Ontario Hockey League following two losses to the Western Hockey League. The WHL won 7-3 on Monday in Kelowna, and 4-2 in Kamloops on Tuesday.
It's didn't look pretty early, but the Blazers stuck with it and Collin Shirley scored the game-winning goal with 31 seconds left, giving Kamloops a 3-2 win over the Victoria Royals on Wednesday night.
Craig Bonner is out as the Vice-President and General Manager of the Kamloops Blazers, succeeded by a figure from the team's storied past. The team issued a news release today stating Bonner has resigned to follow another hockey opportunity.
The Blazers are still looking for their first win of the season after dropping two in Victoria this weekend.
Mistakes and Turnovers have been costly.
This one on a Royals power play leads to a tic tac toe with Chaz Reddekop finishing off to give Victoria a 1-0 lead.
