Venue: Frank Crane Arena
Game Time: 7pm
Last Year’s Matchup: Nanaimo won 2 out of three games
Season Series:  Nanaimo has the lone win taking a 5-2 decision

 Game Overview:
Prince George will be looking for revenge this weekend. All three teams they play (Nanaimo, Cowichan Valley, and Langley) they’ve yet to record a win against this season. The Spruce Kings will look to kick things off against Nanaimo, as they’re in the Frank Crane Arena tonight. In the one game they played this season, the big line for the Clippers of Brosseau-Hoover-Rempal combined for eight points with Hoover picking up a hat-trick. In each of the last three games, a player from the opposition has scored a hat-trick against the Spruce Kings. It started with Hoover, then Kawaguchi and Sukumuran each had hat-tricks last weekend against PG. The away team will need to shut down the top line of Nanaimo if they want any chance of coming away with a victory tonight.
Prince George Away Record: 3-13-0-2
Spruce Kings Leading Scorer: Adam Brubacher 11 goals-16 assists-37 points

Nanaimo Home Record: 12-6-0-0
Clippers Leading Scorer: Sheldon Rempal 37 goals-36 assists-73 points

Player to watch:
Spruce Kings: Back on home soil, the Vancouver Island boy Connor Logan needs to make an appearance this weekend. The rookie is second in rookie scoring on the team, and will need to put some points up in the absence of Jake LeBrun and Braiden Epp.

Clippers: Matthew Hoover had a hat-trick last time around, and will look to continue that success at home. He had the lone power play marker for the Clippers, and is tied for the team lead in PPG with Rempal at 13. The Spruce Kings as a unit have 24 goals on the man advantage this season.
