Bruins unveil tentative schedule

  • Jul. 28, 2010 11:00 a.m.

The Chilliwack Bruins have released a tentative version of their 2010-11 regular season schedule. The Western Hockey League will unveil the official schedule Aug. 10.

The Bruins home opener is Saturday, Oct. 2 versus Kamloops Blazers. That night will include a tribute to First Nations and the debut of Chilliwack’s new third jersey.

The team hosts three holiday games, including the now-annual Remembrance Day matchup with the Vancouver Giants. Just like last year, a special one-time jersey will be worn for that game.

The Bruins play the Prince Albert Raiders on Thanksgiving Day (Oct. 11) and the Moose Jaw Warriors are in town New Years Eve.

“We’re very pleased with the schedule,” said Bruins marketing director Barry Douglas. “Of our 36 home dates, 26 will be played on weekends including 13 Saturday games. All six Sunday games, with 5 p.m. starts, will once again be Family Fun Nights.”

One change of note for this season will be the start time for Friday home games. They will start at 7:30 p.m., a half hour later than in previous seasons.

“After getting feedback from our fan base, we feel that starting the Friday games a little later will give more people a chance to get to the game on time,” Douglas explained.
