Three Kootenay International Junior Hockey League (KIJHL) players from Prince Rupert have started the season strong in Junior B hockey, with all scoring a goal just a few weeks into the season.

Tyler Ostrom (20) notched his first marker of the year when his Osooyos Coyotes played the Chase Heat on Sept. 13. He’s also almost matched his entire penalty minute total from last year through only seven games this season, including 12 PIMs in an 8-4 win versus the Columbia Valley Rockies. Ostrom has 24 PIMs compared to last year’s 27 in 37 games.

Brady Ward (19), another Rupertite, recently scored against the Revelstoke Grizzlies with the 100 Mile House Wranglers. He recorded an assist on opening night against Grand Forks.

Braydon Horcoff (20) also found the back of the net on Sept. 27 on the power-play, playing against Columbia Valley with the Beaver Valley Nitehawks in a 2-1 win.

At Thompson Rivers University (TRU), Sarah McChesney is gearing up for her first meet with the Wolf Pack, the Kamloops Classic Swimming/TRU Inter-city Dual Meet on Oct. 10, a swim she said will be a real test to start her university career as everyone must swim 15 events over three days.

Celina Guadagni from Rupert and Nate Vogstad from the Village of Queen Charlotte are practicing with their school’s basketball teams in preparation for the upcoming season. For Vogstad, he’ll suit up for the Simon Fraser University Clan and Guadagni is doing the same for Vancouver Island University.
