The 2nd Annual BCHL Showcase will take place from September 6th-8th at the Prospera Centre for a second straight year. Last season the inaugural showcase was an overall success and proved to be a one stop shop for scouts to take in 16 games in a span of a weekend.
The Rivermen will kick off the 2013-2014 season with a game against the Trail Smoke Eaters on Friday, September 6th at 7:00 PM. The squad will then get a day off on Saturday before playing in their final game on Sunday at 5:30 PM against the Merritt Centennials. Both contests will be on the secondary rink.
