The Kensington Moase Plumbing and Heating Vipers will host the Sherwood Falcons Sunday at Community Gardens in Kensington.
The Island Junior Hockey League game gets underway at 7 p.m.
The four-time defending league champion and 2012-13 Atlantic champion Vipers will have a new look team this season after graduating five players and promoting three to the Summerside Western Capitals. They will also be without Drew Coulson (exchange trip until the new year) and Brett Hogan (UPEI soccer) meaning a new look team to start the season.
Some newcomers to the team are rookies from the Mid Isle Matrix defenceman Ryan Murray and forward Spencer Mcallistar.
The Vipers have also added forward Josh Bowman, who played with the junior A last season with the Bridgewater Lumberjacks and Dylan McQuaid, who split time between the Western Capitals and Holland College Hurricanes last season. McQuaid gives the Vipers arguably one of the top-three goalies in the league and he will be counted on to keep the Vipers in games early in the season.
The Vipers are hoping last season’s support continues this year.
Ticket prices remain the same and season passes will be on sale as well.
