Odds n’ Ends
Last Saturday in Kimberley Jason Greenwell got his 3rd shutout as a Ghostrider …. Dave McIvor missed the new a few times last Friday but on Saturday had 2 goals and 1 assist and in 2 games last week had 4 points and now has 42pts. …. 23 of those are goals….Jordan Reid leads the Riders with 45 pts…… Derek Bishop and Cody Reinbold have the most points for defensemen at 15 but with 5 goals and 8 assists Joe DeLuca is right behind them….Nitro Nick Grady started all the fights last Friday with a hit from behind that saw the Riders lose three players but it helped Scott Traverse up his team leading PIM to 164….. Last Friday’s game here in Fernie was a total sellout of 1140 and dozens of fans were turned away at the door……The Ghostriders and their Coaches and Board Members thank you for your support.
