With a playoff spot already secured, the West Kelowna Warriors will continue their longest road stretch of BCHL season tonight in Coquitlam against the Express.

It will be the Warriors fourth of seven consecutive games away from Royal LePage Place.

West Kelowna will then travel to Trail this weekend for two games against the Smoke Eaters.

Rylan Ferster’s club couldn’t have asked for a better start to their road tour, sweeping three games in as many nights and clinching no worse than third spot in the Interior Division.

After blasting Cowichan Valley 7-1 on Friday night, the Warriors followed up with wild 6-5 victory over the Powell River Kings in double OT. Over the two games, Jonathan Desbiens paced the Warriors with four goals and five assists.

Then on Sunday in Chilliwack, West Kelowna made it 3-for-3 with 6-3 win over the Chiefs.

Garrett Forster scored a hat-trick and Desbiens added a goal and two assists for a 12-point weekend.

The Warriors (30-16-2-1) next home action is Saturday, Feb. 13 against the Langley Rivermen.
