Wild will break a 582-day dry spell Saturday

Wenatchee's last game was March 6, 2020

By the time the Wenatchee Wild start the BCHL hockey season this Saturday, it will have been 582-days since they last took the ice in a meaningful game. It was on March 6, 2020 that the Wild fell in Game 5 to the Vernon Vipers in the playoffs. Arch Ecker had the call…

It turned out to be the last day for anything in the 2020 season in the league before it was shut down due to COVID-19. Little did Wenatchee know the border closing the following season meant NO season for the Wild.

Head coach Chris Clark says there’s no better way to get back into the swing of things than head north to play a rival on Saturday…

Here’s a look at the first part of the Wenatchee Wild’s schedule. Now, the border is still closed for land-travel into the U-S, so the BCHL has arranged to fly teams to Seattle and then the Wild will pick them up and bring them to Wenatchee for games. The teams will then bus back into Canada.

The Wild, meanwhile, will head to Canada on extended trips, such is what you see here. So Wenatchee will play 8-games north of the border before finally opening the home part of the schedule November 11th and 12th against West Kelowna.
