CIHL releases schedule for 2012/2013 season

The CIHL released its schedule for the upcoming season and the Prince Rupert Rampage will start the season with a long road swing.

The Central Interior Hockey League (CIHL) released its schedule for the upcoming season, and with the ice out of the arena the Prince Rupert Rampage will start the season with a long road swing.

The Rampage will start the season against the perennial league champion Kitimat Ice Demons on Saturday October 6 in Kitimat. The next weekend the team will take a massive road trip, playing the Lac La Hache Tomahawks – the furthest southern team in the league – on October 13 and the Williams Lake Stampeders on October 14. Two weeks later the team will play one of only three Friday games against the Terrace River Kings on October 26 before traveling to Kitimat for another game against the Demons.

The home opener for the team will be October 27, once again against the Demons, and the following weekend the team hits the road again for a saturday game against the Houston Luckies and a Sunday game against the Smithers Steelheads. The next four games for the Rampage will be at home as the team hosts the Stampeders and the Kangaroos on November 24 and 25, host the Demons on December 1 and finish the home-stand against the River Kings on December 8.

The Rampage continue their rivalry with the Demons on the road on December 14 and finish off the 2012 calendar year with a home game on December 29.

In 2013 the first game of the season will be on January 4 against the River Kings, and the team finishes off the 2012/2013 season with three home games against the Steelheads and Luckies on January 12 and 13 and play their last game against the Omenica Ice of Vanderhoof.
