With the Chase Heat on a penalty kill

Gathering weekend points

The Chase Heat were thankful over the past weekend as they found ways to put points up in the KIJHL standings

The Chase Heat were thankful over the past weekend as they found ways to put points up in the KIJHL standings.

Saturday the 10th they travelled to Princeton to face the Posse.

In the 1st they got a pair, Kolten Moore unassisted and then Zachary Fournier from Grady Musgrave.

In the 2nd, Princeton got a short-handed marker before Moore got his second from Travis Beaubien and then Beaubien popped in one from Tommy Brown.

It was all Chase in the 3rd except for a mental lapse with seven seconds left in the game. It was Michael Fidanza from Pat Brady, Logan Mostat with a short-handed assist to Nic Bruyere and lastly Beaubien with his second from Moore.

Bruyere stood tall in the twine stopping 20 of 22 while his teammates fired 44 at the Princeton stopper.

On Thanksgiving Sunday the 11th, in a matinee match-up, the visiting Columbia Valley Rockies from Invermere played physical hockey and got into penalty trouble while suffering a 4-1 loss at the hands of the Heat.

In the 1st, Mostat got things started from Fournier and Fidanza, then Moore got the second goal from Trevor Okino and Alex Durbeniuk.

In the 2nd the teams traded goals, Chase getting a power-play one from Okino assisted by Austin Willier and Mostat.

The Heat closed things out in the 3rd with another power-play goal from Braden Hughes, assisted by Okino and Moore.

Daniel Toews faced 25 shots and let a singleton by him for the victory.

Warmed up leftovers

Going into the season it was expected that Chase would have trouble scoring. Currently the team is fourth overall, a pleasant surprise with eight players in the top 50.

The Heat are currently second in their division and tied for third overall in the KIJHL with 16 points after 11 games.

Local player Tony Dennis made a decision to pursue a different career other than hockey and the entire Heat organization is proud of him and wishes him all the best!

Spencer Farstad took a puck to the face in Princeton and ended up with 20 stitches to repair the damage.

The combo of Bruyere and Toews between the pipes is the envy of a host of foes.

The Heat picked up defenceman Mason Palaga from the 100 Mile Wranglers for futures to shore up the back end. Palaga joins a bunch of his hockey buddies from Kamloops on the crew.

Next up are the Osoyoos Coyotes on Saturday the 17th at 7 p.m. at Art Holding Memorial Arena. The Heat travel to division- rival Sicamous, the Houseboat Capital, on Friday the 16th.
