The 2014-2015 KIJHL has started and the Rebels already have five games under their belt against two of their arch rivals in the Neil Murdoch Division of the Kootenay Conference, the Grand Forks Border Bruins and the Beaver Valley Nitehawks and with Creston in the Eddie Mountain Division.

All the games have been close, although the Rebels have only won one of the games.

According to sources inside the Rebel camp, coach Jess Dorrans is still choosing the team and using the exhibition games to test some new hopefuls with their skills in the “big league.”

The Rebels are regrouping after last season’s disappointing early finish in the playoffs against the Beaver Valley Nitehawks.

The locals lost to Beaver Valley last Friday and Saturday,  4-2 and 5-3 respectively.

However, Castlegar was then able to split games with the Grand Forks Border Bruins. The Rebels lost on Thursday 5-4 in a close match before a home crowd but rebounded on September 8 with a 5-4 win in Grand Forks.

The Rebels lost its season opener in Creston on September 3, 4-3.

The regular season opens this Saturday  for the Rebels as they travel to Nelson to take on the rival leafs. That games starts at 7 p.m..

The first home regular season game for the Rebels is on Friday September 19 against the Spokane Chiefs. The game begins at 7 p.m..
