Preview: Victoria at Everett, Tues. Dec 31, 2013

It’s the beginning of a home and home as the 3rd place Victoria Royals (25-13-0-2, 52pts) visit the 4th place Everett Silvertips (23-11-4-0, 50pts) in a New Years Eve matchup.

Pregame show at 5:45 on The Zone @ 91.3 FM.

It’s the first meeting of the season, as last year the Royals took the series 3-1.  Royals forward Mitch Skapski will face his former club for the first time.

Both clubs are 12 games over .500, have scored almost the identical amount of goals, while being equally as stingy defensively.

Victoria is riding a 4 game win streak, and has points in 6 straight (5-0-0-1), while Everett won their last outing, including 2 of their last 3 but only have 3 wins in their past 10.

Both clubs are missing players due to tournaments.  At the U-17’s are Royals Tyler Soy and Chaz Reddekopp, Kevin Davis and Noah Juulsen for the Silvertips.  Sharks draft pick defenseman Mirco Mueller is at the World Juniors for Team Switzerland.

Victoria is without the injured Joe Hicketts and Logan Nelson, while Everett played their last 2 games without the services of Joshua Winquist who’s 3rd in league scoring (59pts) and without 28 point man Manraj Hayer (upper).

Brayden Low’s first career overtime game-winning goal gave the Everett Silvertips a 4-3 victory over the Seattle Thunderbirds earning a split in the second game of a home-and-home set between the rivals Saturday night at the ShoWare Center.

Victoria is coming off a weekend sweep of the visiting Prince George Cougars by 8-1 and 5-2 scores.  The line of Brandon Magee, Steven Hodges and Axel Blomqvist totalled 19 points as Victoria outscored Prince George 13-3.  Coleman Vollrath earned both victories.

The Royals scored a total of 13 goals over the weekend set, as the line of Magee, Hodges and Blomqvist combined for a total of 19 points.  Magee now has 12 points (4g 8a) in his last 4 games and riding an 8 game point streak (17pts).   Blomqvist is riding a 6 game point streak with 11pts (6g 5a) in that span, while Hodges has 13pts (5g 8a) over his last 7 games.

With just two points separating these clubs, it makes for a big Conference matchup New Years Eve and Day as the rematch is set for 3pm in Victoria on January 1st.

Recap: VIC 6 - LETH 1

The Victoria Royals (21-13-0-2, 44pts) got goals from 6 different players in a 6-1 win over the Hurricanes in Lethbridge Sunday afternoon.

Ben Walker celebrates a goal
“I liked the way started the game, and stayed with what we wanted to do for 60 minutes.”  - Head Coach Dave Lowry

The Royals got a goal and assist each from Steven Hodges, Brandon Magee and Ryan Gagnon who scored his first WHL goal and was named first star.  Brett Cote and Chaz Reddekopp had a pair of assists each while Ben Walker, Austin Carroll and Mitch Skapski rounded out the scoring.


Vollrath was #2 star with 30 saves
Coleman Vollrath earned the win with 30 saves, as their penalty kill stopped 6 of 7 while scoring once on four chances.

Victoria held period leads of 2-0 and 5-1, and finished strong according to Lowry, with the only goal in the third.

“I was really impressed in the third period where we locked it down, we did give up a few chances, and they did get a few opportunities on the power play, but for the most part I liked the game in it’s entirety.”
Ryan Gagnon was the #1 star
The Royals sweep the season set 3-0 after a pair of wins on Island in October.

Axel Blomqvist faced his former club for the first time after being dealt to the Royals and picked up an assist.

Recap: VIC 3 - MH 4 SOL

Austin Carroll scored a pair of third period goals to help the Victoria Royals (21-13-0-2, 44pts) earn a point in a 4-3 shoot out loss in Medicine Hat Saturday.

Blomqvist is denied by Wapple
Trailing 3-1 in the third, Carroll scored his team leading 16th and 17th goals to force overtime which solved nothing.

“I got a couple nice feeds from Blomqvist and Skapski, and the puck just happened to bounce in…” 

-Austin Carroll on his 2 goals to tie the game. 
Polivka stops Valk's one timer

“We worked hard the rest of the game to get that goal to put us on top, but it didn’t work and we got a point…we’ve got to take some positives from this game.”

In the shoot out, Daniel Wapple denied both Ben Walker and Axel Blomqvist, while Curtis Valk and Miles Koules scored, and Tommy Vannelli was stopped by Patrik Polivka.

“I liked our resiliency, we got behind the 8-ball and our guys stayed with what we wanted to do.  We got pucks to the net, pushed the game to overtime, unfortunately lost in the shoot out tonight.” – Royals Head Coach Dave Lowry
Polivka stopped Valk on a shorthanded breakaway
Victoria remains even on their 5 game road trip with a 1-1-0-1 record after a 4-3 overtime victory in Swift Current Thursday and 3-2 loss at Vancouver Tuesday.

Lowry calls a Time Out
With the point, the Royals move into a tie for 4th in the West, after a Thunderbird loss against the Winterhawks Saturday.

“We don’t have a great record when we don’t score the first goal, but I really liked the way we came and competed right to the end.”  Said Lowry

The club hit the half way point of the season, with an 8 game over .500 record and 44 points (21-13-0-2), on pace to exceed their 35 win, 77 point record from last season.

Royals 16 year old defenseman Chaz Reddekopp scored his first WHL goal while adding an assist. 

“It was awesome, it was a good feeling to get the boys back in it there – just lucky it went in.”  said Reddekopp on his first goal.

“He’s going to be a real good player in this league for a long time.  It was nice to see him finally get rewarded…” said Lowry on Reddekopp

Tyler Cox had a goal and assist for the Tigers, while Curtis Valk and Tyler Lewington added singles.

Patrik Polivka kept Victoria in the game making 36 saves, while Daniel Wapple kicked out 34 shots.

Victoria was 0/3 on the power play, while Medicine Hat went 1 for 4.

In the first, Patrik Polivka made an outstanding save on Steven Owre, who also hit the post in the period.  Daniel Wapple stopped Steven Hodges on a breakaway.

The Tigers jumped to a 2-0 lead late with goals 1:36 apart.  Trevor Cox found the top corner for his 9th of the year, while Curtis Valk added his 14th with just 1:10 to go in the first. 

Reddekopp notched his first to cut the lead in half early in the second, but Lewington’s power play marker restored the 2 goal lead heading into the third.

Playing in just his second game with the Royals, Brendan Oleksyn fought Blake Penner early in the third period which seemed to spark his teammates.

“I think that was probably one of the big keys, he emotionally got invested and was a difference maker.  I like the fact that he took it upon himself but I also liked the fact that our guys really went after it after that, and found a way to get a lift.”  Said Lowry on Oleskyn tilt.

Medicine Hat was without World Junior participants Hunter Shinkaruk, netminder Marek Langhamer of the Czech Republic and forward Markus Eisenchmid of Germany.

Victoria was without 5 regulars in the line up. Brandon Magee served the the final of a two game suspension.  Logan Nelson (upper 7-10 days) along with defensemen Jordan Fransoo (upper, 2 weeks), Joe Hicketts (upper, indefinite) and forward Jack Walker (illness, day to day).

The Royals are now 1-2 in shoot outs and have a record of 3-13-0-1 when trailing after 40 minutes.

Victoria’s 10 day road trip continues Sunday afternoon with a 1pm puck drop in Lethbridge, and wrap up 5 games in 8 nights Tuesday at Edmonton.
