You will have a chance to see junior hockey. Kids 17 to 20 years old with lots of talent and lots of energy. They are the playing to get to the next level (professional) and are very energetic!

Three teams in the Vancouver area are

Langley Chiefs

Burnaby Express

Surrey Eagles

Here is the web link to the league, you can find the individual team links on the site.

I would contact the individual teams listed above some time this summer to see when they will be playing in the 2007/2008 season. They will probably have some pre-season games. Prices are very reasonable and the games will be high speed.

Hope that helps. Enjoy your visit.

If you have a car, there is a place called Burnaby 8 Rinks where you can see people practicing or playing pick up games if you just wanted to get the experience of seeing people skating first hand.

Not sure if you have heard but there will be a couple of NHL games being played in London between the LA Kings and Anaheim Ducks to start the next regular season. Those games are in late September, but I expect they will arrive well in advance of that to do some scrimmages, etc.
