The Kootenay Ice is back in B.C. Hockey Major Midget League action Saturday and Sunday in Rossland.
However, the competition doesn't get any easier for the Major Midget club as first place Okanagan Rockets, featuring many Western Hockey League draft picks, come to the Golden City to face the Ice.
The Rockets are tied for top spot with the Vancouver Northwest Giants, each with 16-3-1 records.
Kootenay squandered a chance to move up in league standings this past weekend by playing to a pair of ties against Kamloops Blazers — 3-3 and 2-2.
