Panther season minus Stingers

The Vancouver Island Junior Hockey Leage schedule is set, minus the Westshore Stingers.

The Stingers’ franchise was frozen partway through the 2010-11 season and will sit out the 2011-12 season.

Without Westshore the Kerry Park Islanders have been shifted to the South Division with the Victoria Cougars, Peninsula Panthers and Saanich Braves. The Campbell River Storm, Comox Valley Glacier Kings and Oceanside Generals will form the North Island Division

Teams in the North will meet nine times; teams in the South will meet eight times. North Island teams will meet South Island teams six times, in a 42-game schedule.

On the home front, the Peninsula Panthers club, based at Panorama Recreation Centre, open the season at home against the Comox Valley Glacier Kings on Sept. 9. Game time is 7:30 p.m. They head out to Comox the next night for the first road game.

Their first battle against a South division team will be the Saanich Braves at Pearkes arena at 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 14.

Preseason games start in August. Visit www.vijhl.com for game times as they become available.
