Surrey Knights have been shut out eight times this season – nine, if you count the league all-star game.
None of the Knights players have been named to the Pacific Junior Hockey League (PJHL) team for a showcase game against the Vancouver Island league all-stars at Ladner Leisure Centre on Sunday, Jan. 26, starting at 2:45 p.m.
Surrey isn’t alone, though, as the PJHL squad doesn’t include any players from teams in White Rock, Port Moody and Mission.
Instead, the all-star team is loaded with seven players with the league-leading North Vancouver Wolf Pack, three with Grandview Steelers, three with Richmond Sockeyes, two with Ridge Meadows Flames, two with Langley Trappers, and single skaters with Delta Ice Hawks, Aldergrove Kodiaks and Abbotsford Pilots.
The roster was posted to the league’s Facebook page on Tuesday (Jan. 14).
This season, heading into action Thursday (Jan. 16) at home against Ridge Meadows, the cellar-dwelling Surrey team has one win, 32 regulation losses and four overtime losses.
Wednesday night’s Knights-Kodiak game in Aldergrove was postponed due to that day’s snowstorm.
