The Vancouver Island Seals will open a three-game series against the Northern Capitals on Friday as they look to extend their season long three-game win streak. Seals forward Devan Andrusak recorded five points (3g-2a) last weekend to move into the top 10 in league scoring. The Northern Capitals will come into the series on the back of two wins, but will be without the league’s top two scorers, Hailey Armstrong and Brooklyn Hutchings, as they are away with Team BC at the 2021 Western Regional Women’s U18 Championship.
