Hockey is back, as the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League gets ready for the regular season.
Pre-season is underway and the Golden Rockets have already played twice.
Game one of the exhibition was on Friday, where the Rockets lost to the Revelstoke Grizzlies 5-4.
The next night they lost again to the Grizzlies, this time 1-0.
Pre-season action continues tonight with the Fernie Ghostriders taking on the Creston Valley Thunder Cats.
The Columbia Valley Rockies’ first game will be on Thursday against the Rockets and Kimberley will have to wait until Friday for their first pre-season match as they play the Rockets as well.
The regular season begins on Sept. 22.
