With opening night of the 2010-11 KIJHL season less than 2 months away, one might wonder when the league will release its schedule. I'm told it will happen in the next week or two, but the Kelowna Chiefs have decided to jump the gun by posting their sked on their website on Friday (for the record, they play the Rebels once, January 22nd in Castlegar).
The Rebels will open the new season with a home and home against the Nelson Leafs on September 10th and 11th, and once everything else is finalized, I will post the entire schedule here (plus news of a possible quirk to this year's Leafs schedule as well).
Bits & Bites: I had a brief chat with Darren Tarasoff over the weekend, he says he's planning on returning to Castlegar for his overage season. Our friends at Ridernews have the details on a trade this past weekend that sees Fernie pick up 1992 forward Sean Maktaak from Creston Valley. The move is considered the future considerations Fernie was promised in the Steven Casselman trade last season.
