The red-hot Kimberley Dynamiters look to carry their momentum into the New Year.
Head Coach Derek Stuart says their goals remain the same as they enter 2018.
“Get better every practice and get better every game.” says Stuart. “Hopefully [we] hit our peak once playoffs come.”
The Nitros are winners of eight straight games after defeating Fernie 9-4 Friday.
The Dynamiters finished December with a perfect 8-0 record.
Stuart says an undefeated December was due in large part to maintaining focus and playing hard from start to finish every game.
“I think the guys were ready to go each and every game.” says Stuart. “Playing home-and-home series’ against three teams that are chasing you makes it a little bit easier but the focus was definitely impressive.”
Brock Palmer continues to lead the Dynamiters scoring race with 46 points (21G, 25A) in 30 games.
Kimberley begins 2018 on the road against Grand Forks and Nelson this coming weekend.
Kimberley is now nine points ahead of the Creston Valley Thunder Cats for the Eddie Mountain Division lead.
