Chiefs cap unbeaten preseason with Powell River win

The Chilliwack Chiefs enter the regular season this weekend, hosting the BCHL Showcase at Prospera Centre.

Craig Puffer scored three times to help lead his Chilliwack Chiefs to a 7-3 home ice victory over the Powell River Kings Saturday night.

The Chiefs finished the pre season with four wins in four games.

The Kings led 2-0 just past the six minute mark of the first period on goals  by Wes St. Amond and Nick Nonis. The Chiefs tied it briefly on goals by Puffer and Vincent Desharnais before Curtis McCarrick restored the Kings lead.

It was all Chilliwack after that.

Puffer scored twice with Tipper Higgins and Jake Larson adding last minute goals to give the Chiefs a 6-3 lead through 40 minutes.

Powell River’s Jesse Lansdell scored the only goal of the third period.

Mitchell Datz went the distance in goal for the Chiefs making 26 saves. Stefan Wornig and Chilliwack native Dawson Rodin split the goaltending duties for the Kings.

The Chiefs open the regular season at home, hosting the BCHL Showcase this weekend at Prospera Centre.

They play Powell River Saturday (7 p.m.) and Merritt Sunday (6 p.m.).
