The Kootenay ICE kick off their weekend at home Friday against the Spokane Chiefs.
The ICE haven’t seen Spokane since November when they lost 5-4.
Forward Brett Davis says they need to match the skill of the Chiefs’ top forwards.
“We’re going to have to come out with a lot of intensity and we’re going to come out physical against those guys.” says Davis. “Hopefully we can shut down their top guys and put a few in the back of the net.”
Davis is riding a four game point streak with 14 points in his last 10 games.
The 18-year old was also named ICE January Player of the Month.
Davis says he’s happy with the way he’s producing.
“Just a confident guy right now.” says Davis. “I have to give credit to my linemates, it’s working out.”
Davis has 38 points in 50 games with Kootenay this season.
Kootenay plays host to Swift Current Saturday after Friday’s clash with the Chiefs.
The Broncos are one of the top teams in the entire WHL and are led by forward Aleksi Heponiemi who has amassed 93 points in 39 games this season.
Listeners can catch both games live on The Drive starting with the pre game show at 6:35.
