BCHL releases full-season schedule

A home-heavy stretch run may help the revamped Chilliwack Chiefs if they're in a BCHL playoff chase.

The Chilliwack Chiefs 2014-15 schedule was released Monday by the BCHL.

It’s a balanced slate that’s mostly free of oddities.

The team plays 58 regular season games and the most unusual stretch is back-to-back-to-back games against the Langley Rivermen Jan. 9, 10 and 15.

Chilliwack’s unofficial home opener is Sept. 20 with a BCHL Showcase game against Powell River Kings.

The official home opener is Sept. 27 when they host the Surrey Eagles.

The annual Vancouver Island road trip is Nov. 12-16, starting in Coquitlam then heading across the water to Powell River (Nov. 14), Alberni Valley (Nov. 15) and Nanaimo (Nov. 16). They visit Victoria and the Cowichan Valley Capitals Jan. 24-25.

If the Chiefs are in the thick of the playoff hunt as the season winds down, they’ll be thankful to play nine of their last 13 games in the friendly confines of Prospera Centre.

Each BCHL team plays 28 home dates and 28 games on the road.

All teams will have at least seven days off at Christmas with no games scheduled from Dec. 22 to 27.

The regular season concludes Feb. 28.
