Centennials Release 14/15 BCHL Regular Season Schedule:

Another season of Merritt Centennials BCHL Hockey is gearing up in the Nicola Valley, as the league schedule was released on Thursday.

The schedule is highlighted by a pair of home stretches that span five and four games. That span of games, in the timing they both fall, could mean very important points for the Centennials down the stretch.

The season opens in Chilliwack on September 20th and 21st, before the Centennials open the season on Friday, September 26th in Salmon Arm. The home opener will go on Saturday, September 27th at 7:30 PM against the Penticton Vees.
