Venue: Town Toyota Center
Game Time: Friday @ 7:05pm
Season Series:  Wenatchee leads 4-1. Prince George’s lone win came at home in a 3-2 win with Raposo picking up the game winner.

 Game Overview:
It’s been a while since the Spruce Kings took on the Wenatchee Wild. Since the last meeting Prince George has a very new lineup, that looks a lot younger following the trade deadline. In the Spruce Kings first visit to the Town Toyota Center, the Wild outshot them 27-19, but barely won coming away with a 2-1 win. That was during Jake LeBrun’s hot streak, and he had the lone goal with a PPG in front of the crowd of 3044. Wenatchee leads the league in attendance, with their average of 2915 fans being nearly 600 ahead of the second place Penticton Vees. Prince George started the season getting outscored 13-1 in two games against the Wild, but the past games have all been close.
Prince George Home Record: 5-18-1-2
Spruce Kings Leading Scorer: Matt Stief – 4 goals / 34 assists / 38 points

Wenatchee Road Record: 15-7-1-1
Wild Leading Scorer: Brendan Harris – 11 goals / 34 assists / 45 points

Player to watch:
Spruce Kings: Last weekend against the Surrey Eagles, Parker Colley paced the Spruce Kings attack with four points. He had two assists on Friday, and then added a goal and an assist on Saturday. Of all the goals Colley has scored, all three have now been on breakaways, with one coming on an empty net. He didn’t have any points last week, but Adam Burnett has been developing into a leader for his team. The last few games have seen him collect a number of penalties, so look for him to hit the scoresheet with some offence this weekend.

Wild: Last time Prince George travelled to Wenatchee, Chase Perry had a much deserved third star selection. He has played Prince George in all five games, and has yet to see over 23 shots. He has two shutouts, two games allowing one goal, and one game (the loss) where he let in three. The third star selection in Wenatchee was the only star he received in those five games. Of the five games the Wild have beat the Spruce Kings, only once did they have a repeat scorer, and that was Dakota Raabe with a pair in the 8-0 win. He leads the Wild in goals against the Spruce Kings this year with four goals in five games.
