Summerside Western Capitals
Kelly will get the start for the visiting Capitals against the Bridgewater Lumberjacks in the MHL (Maritime Junior Hockey League) contest.
Capitals’ No. 1 goaltender Simon-Pier Chamberland was injured in a collision early in Wednesday night’s game in Miramichi, and will not dress this evening. The Caps have called up Jordan Zember to back up Kelly tonight.
Kelly has compiled a 3-7-1 (won-lost-overtime losses) record this season, along with a 3.32 goals-against average and .900 save percentage.
The Capitals go into the game with an 11-18-2-2 (won-lost-overtime losses-shootout losses) record. Bridgewater is last overall in the 11-team league at 2-29-3-2. However, one of those wins came in Summerside early in the season.
Tonight will mark the debut of new Bridgewater head coach Travis Young, a former assistant coach with the Acadia Axemen.
