The Victoria Royals came to Sooke and played some hockey with the locals

The Victoria Royals hit the ice at the Seaparc Leisure Complex arena for a practice and meet-and-greet with the Sooke Thunderbirds from 5-7 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 20. The event was the first of its kind, according to Jeff Harris, Victoria Royals media director. Harris said the visit will be one of many across Vancouver Island, as the Royals intend on making more trips to other communities.
