Before their weekend matchups against Fernie and Golden this past week, the Rockies held a “Christmas Shopping with the Rockies” event where children under the age of 12 had the opportunity to do some Christmas shopping in town with Rockies players. After purchasing all of the gifts they had on their lists, the children went with the players to the arena so that they could carefully wrap all of the gifts they had just purchased. Now our Rockies faithful will have beautifully wrapped gifts waiting under their trees for their loved ones until Christmas morning!
The Rockies completed week nine splitting their two games with a 1-1 record. They hosted the Fernie Ghostriders on Friday, Nov. 26, and just couldn’t put one past the Fernie goaltender Dylan Lacroix. Saturday brought the 0.500 Golden Rockets to town, where the Rockies won by a final score of 4-1.
Additionally, on Saturday, Nov. 27, Copper Point Golf President & GM Brian Schaal presented the team with a cheque totaling $2,180.00 from the annual Columbia Valley Rockies Golf Tournament that took place back in September of 2021.
We’d like to give a huge thank you to Copper Point Golf for their continued support of the Columbia Valley Rockies hockey program.
This week, the Rockies face Kimberley away on Tuesday night and follow that up with a Friday game at home versus Creston before hitting the road on Saturday to take on Fernie.
