Ice Demons take season opener against Prince Rupert Rampage

The Kitimat Ice Demons, wearing new home uniforms for the first time, got the new 2012-13 CIHL season off to a fast start.

The Kitimat Ice Demons, wearing new home uniforms for the first time, got the new 2012-13 CIHL season off to a fast start — literally. Defenseman Kyle Madsen took a draw from Nick Markowski in the first shift and drifted a shot towards Keano Wilson in the Rampage net. The shot was tipped by a Rampage defender and fluttered into the net with just 40 second gone in the game.

After a feisty Challenge Cup game against Prince Rupert in the North Challenge Cup some fans were disappointed by the slow start by the Rampage, who fell behind 3-0 with just six minutes gone.

The game ended 6-1 for Kitimat.

Other league scores saw last year’s CIHL league and playoff champions the Smithers Steelheads run up the score to 9-3 over the Omineca Ice, while it took a shootout in Terrace for the River kings to take their season opener 6-5 over the Houston Luckies.
