WENATCHEE WILD CLAIM BCHL FRED PAGE CUP CHAMPIONSHIP!

Group Celly.jpg

The Wenatchee Wild left no doubt in anyone’s mind that they were the dominant team as they powered their way to a 3-0 win over the Prince George Spruce Kings in Game 5 of the BCHL Finals, laying claim to the league’s championship trophy, the Fred Page Cup. 3,845 fans filled the Town Toyota Center, an impressive number considering the game only became a certainty late Tuesday night when the Wild dropped Game 4 on the road.   

Wenatchee’s speed forced the Spruce Kings to take a few penalties, including a pair of first period tripping calls. The Wild scored on the first power play as Zak Galambos snapped home a hard shot from the left circle just 2:50 into the game. It was another tripping call, this time in the third period that set up the second goal of the night for Galambos. Team captain AJ Vanderbeck buried an empty netter to secure the win at 17:45 of the final frame, as fans chanted, “We Want the Cup”.

Prince George was held to just 8 shots on goal, all of which were denied by Austin Park for the shutout win, but there were quality chances including a couple of shots that rang off posts that just wouldn’t fall for the Spruce Kings as the Wild fired 37 shots at Evan DeBrouwer. Both goalies played exceptionally well.

In the end, Wenatchee overpowered Prince George, laying claim to the Fred Page Cup, the first time since 1979 that the Cup has resided on US soil when the Bellingham (WA) Blazers won it. Up next is the regional Doyle Cup, in which Wenatchee will face the Alberta Junior Hockey League (AJHL) Championship winner in a best-of-seven series, either the Spruce Grove Saints or Okotoks Oilers. From there, the winner gets a berth in the Royal Bank Cup tournament, held this year at Prospera Center in Chilliwack, BC. Details will follow, including information on ticket sales for the Doyle Cup.

WILD RESCHEDULED DATE ANNOUNCED

The Wenatchee Wild, proud members of the British Columbia Hockey League, in conjunction with the BCHL and the Powell River Kings have announced the makeup date for the postponed matchup from a week ago. The rescheduled game will be played Wednesday, January 31, 2018 at 6:30 pm at Town Toyota Center.


The Kings bus broke down while en route to Wenatchee for the game originally scheduled to be played Friday November 3, and it’s since been determined the engine seized. All potential remedies to play the game as scheduled were examined but none were able to be implemented. The task of finding a suitable date for rescheduling the game required considerable effort on the parts of both teams, the league, and the facility before arriving at the agreed upon solution.


Tickets for the originally scheduled November 3 date will be honored at the January 31 game. Any questions may be directed to the Wild office by calling 509-888-7825.

LITTLER NAMED AS FINALIST FOR CJHL COACH OF THE YEAR

The Canadian Junior Hockey League today announced the five finalists for their “Coach of the Year” award, which is presented annually and determined through voting by the 10 leagues that comprise the CJHL. Among the five finalists is the Head Coach / GM of the Wenatchee Wild, Bliss Littler.

Littler, who was also recognized by the BCHL this season as the Head Coach of the Year, guided his team to a league best record of 45-9-4, earning the Ron Boileau Memorial Trophy for the top record in the BCHL. The Wild also led the league in both power play goals (75) and shorthanded goals (15), as well as power play and penalty kill percentages. Wenatchee led the BCHL with a staggering plus-159 in goal differential, and were unbeaten in regulation on home ice (26-0-2) during the regular season. Fifteen of the players who played for Littler last season hold Division I college commitments, with more of them sure to come.

Littler and his staff are in Missouri this weekend for a tryout camp as the Wild prepare for their tenth season in the Wenatchee Valley, and the sixth in Wenatchee for Littler, whose coaching career dates back to 1996.
