The Kimberley Dynamiters are taking their eight game winning streak on the road this weekend.
The Nitros will pay a visit to Grand Forks Friday before heading to Nelson Saturday.
Kimberley is being led by rookie forward Cam Russell who currently owns a ten game point streak.
Russell has 15 points in total over the 10 game span.
He says it’s easy to produce when your entire team is firing on all cyclinders.
“I think personally I had a little bit of a slow start at the beginning of the season but where I’m at now and [how I’m] playing consistently I think I’m really happy with where I’m at right now.” says Russell.
Russell says he’s happy with the role he’s been given from Head Coach Derek Stuart.
“Playing good with your linemates obviously you’re going to get rewarded with ice time and I’m happy with where I’m at, I’m getting quite a bit of ice time.” says Russell. “I’m playing with linemates that are also playing good and that helps the team get in their groove too so as long as mine line is doing good you have to be happy with that.”
Russell is currently third in rookie scoring in the Kootenay Conference behind two of his teammates – Brock Palmer and Chase Gedny.
Kimberley has won once and lost once to the Border Bruins this season and is undefeated against the rough and tough Nelson Leafs.
The Dynamiters continue to lead the Eddie Mountain Division, nine points ahead of the second place Creston Valley Thunder Cats.
