The Kings are excited to officially kick off their 31st season in the British Columbia Hockey League on Saturday September 8th, 2018 at the Hap Parker Arena.
Continuing the 30th Anniversary celebrations that began in January, the team will offer a salute to the original 1988 Powell River Paper Kings team, before turning attention to the present and the future. The Kings are also due to raise their 2018 Island Division Championship banner, won last season by defeating the Nanaimo Clippers and Victoria Grizzlies to advance out of the division (or conference) for the first time since 2012.
Fans are encouraged to arrive early to the game. The Kings will be holding a tailgate party out front of the Hap with live music and entertainment. Rotary Club of Powell River will be on site grilling up food, with all proceeds going to Jumpstart here in Powell River. Canadian Tire is the game night sponsor and will be on hand with contests and prizes for fans.
Season ticket (or Flex Pack) holders who have not yet picked up their ticket will be able to do so at a special table next to the Kings office. Fans can collect their passes before the game as well with the office open 10-4 on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
