Abbotsford – Riding a three-game winning streak to start the season, victory was not in the cards for the Abbotsford Pilots on Friday night as they were handed their first loss of the season by the Aldergrove Kodiaks (1-2-0-0) at MSA Arena by a score of 4-2. Dylan Black was the winning goaltender, stopping 33 shots on the way to the Kodiaks’ first win of the season. The Pilots’ Brock Machholz faced 30 shots on the evening.
Next Pilots Game: Friday in Abbotsford against the Langley Trappers at 7:30pm.
Note: On Friday afternoon, the Pilots traded defenceman Keilan Toews to the Kodiaks in exchange for forward Alex Beechey. The trade marks Beechey’s return to the Pilots organization, having played 53 games with Abbotsford between 2017 and 2018 before being moved to the Port Moody Panthers to finish the 2018-19 season. He made his season debut in Friday night’s game.
