Busy Weekend Lays Ahead For The Whalers

White Rock aim to snap their winless streak with a trio of games against conference opponents this weekend.

Winless in their last pair of games, three fixtures in four days pits the Pod against Richmond, Delta, and North Vancouver.

First up, a visit to Minoru Arena to square off against the Richmond Sockeyes on Thursday November 11th. White Rock are winless in their first two efforts against Richmond this season falling 5-3 and 2-1 in their first two games. Sitting five points and three places back of the second place Sockeyes, the Whalers face a crucial next few days as they have dropped five of their last seven games against Tom Shaw conference opponents.

Thursday’s game against Richmond is a chance to claw back some dropped points in the fifth of seven straight games against inter-conference opposition. The two squads will meet three more times after Thursday, with their next meeting falling on December 4th. Puck drop is set for Thursday November 14th at 7:00pm from Minoru Arena.

Following up Thursday’s game is a return to home ice as the Pod welcome the Delta IceHawks to Centennial on Saturday night. Having fell 6-2 to Delta last Tuesday, an immediate chance for redemption against a team hovering just a few points ahead of White Rock is up for grabs

This will be the fourth time already this season that the two sides square off, with White Rock leading the season series 2-1 after a pair of September wins.

The IceHawks are averaging nearly seven goals a game through their last nine outings, tallying the second most goals in the league this season. The Whalers blue line will be tested as that one is set for Saturday November 13th at 7:30pm from Centennial Arena. Masks and vaccine passports will be mandatory to enter.

Finally, completing this weekend’s back to back is a visit to North Vancouver on Sunday night. The league leading Wolf Pack have had White Rock’s number so far this season, beating them 3-0 in their only meeting so far. Losing just four games on the year, three of those losses have been to Tom Shaw conference opponents Grandview and Richmond. The two sides are set for a back to back matchup on December 18th and 19th at Centennial Arena, but White Rock aims to continue being the thorn in North Vancouver’s side as they have done so historically. That one gets underway from Harry Jerome Arena on Sunday November 14th at 7:00pm.

A massive opportunity lays ahead for coach Jason Rogers and the White Rock Whalers, with six points and a chance to gain some ground on teams above them in on the line. All games will be broadcasted on HockeyTV, with Ben Righetti and Jordy Cunningham having the call for all Whalers home games this season. Be sure to support the boys online as well on all of our social media pages to be sure that you don’t miss any of the action.

The Pod will be back in action next Saturday as they welcome the Chilliwack Jets to Centennial Arena for the first time on November 20th.
