West Kelowna is coming off a loss to the Salmon Arm Silverbacks, while the Chiefs dropped an OT decision to the Penticton Vees on Friday.
Injury and Illness still the story for the Warriors, as it is unknown heading into tonight's game whether Andy Desautels or Brayden Gelsinger will return to the line-up. Jordan Masters is not expected to play.
The Prospera Center is a tricky arena for the Warriors. The beautiful facility that houses the Chiefs is the home of the BCHL Showcase each season, where the Warriors have a 4-2 record over the last 3 seasons.
Games against the Chiefs in this building however, have not been kind to the Warriors as they have an 0-3-2-0 record since Chilliwack returned to the BCHL in 2011-2012.
Add in the fact that the Chiefs are 17-4-0-1 at home this season in front of an average crowd of 2564 (1st in the BCHL) and it's an even bigger test for the Warriors tonight.
