The Kelowna Chiefs will play the second four consecutive road games Friday night when they visit the Nelson Leafs in KIJHL action.

The Chiefs are coming off a 4-2 win over the North Okanagan Knights Wednesday in Armstrong. Jordan Wood had a goal and an assist and Landon Andrusiak as Kelowna won its second straight.

Kelowna’s next home contest is Sunday, Jan. 30 at Rutland Arena against the Kamloops Storm.

With 10 games remaining in the regular season, the Chiefs (20-18-1-2) are second in the KIJHL’s Okanagan Division and just a point back of Kamloops for third overall in the Okanagan/Shuswap Conference.

Ok Rockets…

After a bye last weekend, the Okanagan Rockets return to B.C. Major Midget Leaue action this weekend at home to the Thompson Blazers.

Game times at CNC are Saturday at 3 p.m. and Sunday at 10 a.m.

The Rockets (10-15-3) are in a battle for the sixth and final playoff spot in the BCMML. They trail the sixth-place Vancouver Northeast Chiefs by four points, and are just a point back of the North Island Silvertips and Fraser Valley Bruins for seventh.

The Blazers are alone in last spot at 1-28-1.
