Silvertips to play here

From the rink comes word the North Island Silvertips of the BC Hockey Major Midget League will be hosting the Greater Vancouver Canadians Nov. 4 at Oceanside Place.

The puck drops at 11 a.m., and with the Silvertips penciling in three local players — D-man David Biagioni from Parksville, forwards Trent Bell (Nanoose Bay) and goalie Liam Giroux (QB) — local fans will have plenty to cheer for.

Coaching the Silvertips this season is former Oceanside Generals’ assistant coach Jason Dubyna.

The Major Midget league was established in 2004 to give elite-level players aged 15-17 a chance to play at a high level in their age group.

The Silvertips are currently 4-5-1 on the regular season and tied for sixth in the 11-team league with the South Island Royals, and two points up on the eighth place Canadians.
