BCHL UPDATES WENATCHEE WILD SCHEDULE
The BCHL announced several schedule changes today involving the Wenatchee Wild due to the extension of the border closure for people traveling into the United States from Canada.
The Wild will exclusively play road games in the early part of the season and will make up their home dates in the later months. General Manager, Bliss Littler, “This takes a little pressure off by moving our October home dates to later in the season”
The team was previously scheduled to play four home games in October against the Penticton Vees, Surrey Eagles, Salmon Arm Silverbacks and Trail Smoke Eaters.
The BCHL’s Return to Play Task Force continues to investigate solutions if the land border remains closed beyond October. We will provide further details at a later date. “The Wild have every intention of playing a full season both at home and on the road. We are working with the BCHL office and looking at every available way to play our home games.” said Bliss Littler, Wild GM. “At this time, we can go and play our road games in Canada and return to Wenatchee after the games. The Canadian teams can not cross the land border at this time. We are working on several solutions to get our home games in including have teams fly in. Canadians can fly into the United States at this time.”
Head Coach Clark on the upcoming season, “Our staff couldn’t be more fired up for the start of the 21-22 season. September 17th is a day we have all had circled on our calendar with great anticipation. I know all the kids are excited to get going and there is a great buzz around town. It is great to have Wild Hockey back and can’t wait to see everyone in the Wolves Den soon.”
“We are very excited to have our players come in next week, we officially start next Friday September 17th “, Bliss Littler
