Rockets 2 and 0 in pre-season

  • It's not often that seven players find the score sheet. When it does happen it usually means a lopsided score. Saturday night at Prospera Place, the Rockets scored four times in the first period in a 7-2 win over Victoria, improving their pre-season record to 2 and 0.
  • Zach Franko, who was quiet in a 4-3 overtime win against Vancouver Friday night, scored once and added two assists in the victory. Madison Bowey, MacKenzie Johnston, Colton Sissons, Shane McColgan and Tyson Baillie all had multiple point games.
  • For a second straight night Colton Sissons was handed the 'C' on his jersey.
  • Interesting to note that 20 year-old forward Cody Chikie was the only overage forward/d-man dressed for the Rockets against the Royals. While Chikie was playing in back-to-back night's, 20 year-old d-man Kevin Smith was given the night off again.
  • Four of the seven goals the Rockets scored came on the power play. The Royals took eight of the first nine penalties in the game.
  • Curt Gogol wore the 'C' for the Royals. If he indeed plays junior this season, it will be interesting to see if the 20 year-old assumes that status.

I thought Adam Brown was also a 20yr. old player this season? Kevin Smith missing two games in row, he maybe on the move!!! JMO!
