Rider Notes for the Weekend

The Ghostriders play the Castlegar Rebels Saturday night, after last weekend the Rebels  were in 3rd place in their division with 34 points just 3 points behind Grand Forks... but the Rebels also have 3 games in hand. 
Beaver Valley with 53 points will finish in first place, they will be here in Fernie next Saturday January 14th.

The Ghostriders defeated the Rebels 7-3 here in Fernie on October 1st but the Rebels won 7-5 in Castlegar December 10th.

The Rebels have two guys in the top 10 in KIJHL scoring, Logan Styler has 52 and Ed Lindsey has 50 points.

 Suspension List
Brendan Nemes, Ty Abbott, Nolan Lagace and Ben Shushkovsky will be serving game 3 of their 3 game suspensions on Saturday.  Kyle Haugo was nailed with an instigator penalty during the Kimberley line brawl will still have 3 more games to go.

Head Coach Craig Mohr will also miss Saturday’s game, it will be game 3 of his 5 game suspension.

GM Craig Mohr has a line on a couple of goalies to replace the injured Brandon Butler, and a forward to replace the injured Matt Rogers... we should hear something very soon.

Mitch Titus, who was injured by a cheap shot in the Kimberley game along with Ryan Kennedy and Justin Peers are all listed as day to day with injuries.

Kevin Pierce is playing in Spain with team Mexico (his birth place) in the World Tier two under 20 tournament in Spain. He will be back late January.

In Creston on New Year's Eve the Riders had affiliate players Chase Rayman, Cory Caldwell, Jake Beranek, Owen Titus and Andre Pelletier in the lineup. All the Rider AP's are unavailable this weekend as they all have games with their regular teams. 
Coach Mohr says the AP's did a good job against the 1st place Thunder Cats keeping them in check most of the night and only a late third period goal in a 3-2 loss kept the game from going into OT..

The Ghostriders are in Invermere on Friday night and it is a Drive 99.1 Radio Broadcast game.
