Mark September 7 on your calendars.
That’s the day the 2018-19 Kootenay International Junior Hockey League regular season begins.
The defending-champion Kimberley Dynamiters play host to the Creston Valley Thunder Cats while the Fernie Ghostriders travel to Spokane.
The Columbia Valley Rockies open their season on the road in a cross-conference game versus the Summerland Steam.
It’s the first time teams of opposite conferences will face off in the regular season since 2016.
