By The Nelson Daily Sports
Luke Bertolucci, who will represent B.C. at the Canada Games next month in Halifax, leads the Kootenay Ice back into action as the B.C. Major Midget Hockey League resumes play following the Christmas break.
Bertolucci and the rest of the Ice play host to the Thompson Blazers Saturday and Sunday at the NDCC Arena.
The Ice has been on fire of late, undefeated in four games.
Leading the Ice is Nelson’s Dryden Hunt and Bertolucci. Hunt leads Kootenay in scoring with nine goals and 19 assists.
Bertolucci, scoring for Team B.C. during an exhibition game during the holiday break, is right behind with 10 goals and 17 assists.
Kootenay currently sits in tenth spot in the 11-team league with 5-13-6 record, but is only eight points out of six spot.
The teams open the two-game set Saturday at 7:30 p.m. The series concludes Sunday beginning at 11:15 a.m.
