Nanaimo has taken a step towards potentially hosting a Western Hockey League franchise.
The City has completed an initial study looking into the building of an event centre with up to 8,300 seats depending on the event

Things usually don't work out for Nanaimo, but they still dream big. And that's refreshing for Vancouver Island.

Going to Nanaimo 6 times a year really highlights for me how bad it can be if your city totally sucks at urban planning. The city is really a disaster of pockets of development/retail here and there with vast distances between them. I'd actually suggest that downtown Courtenay seems more like a downtown than anything Nanaimo has for a "downtown".
So they may have a population much higher than other WHL or BCHL towns but it doesn't really matter if it's all spread out.

So little 5'6" Matthew Phillips has scored 50 goals this season and is the new single season record holder for goals scored.

The Royals will take on the number three team in the WHL and top team in the Western Conference, the Everett Silvertips, in their 1-vs-8 Western Conference Quarter-final best-of-seven series. Home games are next Tuesday and Wednesday, with a possible game six afternoon game on April 2.
It's a tough road for the Royals, who have lost 7 games in a row, and just came off a two-loss weekend against the same Everett squad to finish the regular season. If they can get by Everett, they'll be up against either Seattle or Tri-City in the second round. The good news? No chance they play Kelowna until at least the Conference Final.

Great game last night to even the series at 2-2. Does anyone know if the Friday away game will be aired at any local pub?

Royals are in 4OT in their mus-win 6th game right now. Game has been going for more than 5 hours.

Perhaps even crazier is that over at Archie Browning at the same time, the Victoria Cougars (Jr B) were involved in a 4OT game.
So between two junior hockey games in Victoria on Sunday afternoon, 15 periods of hockey were played.
