Grizzlies Continue Road Trip in Rapid City

West Valley City, Utah – The Utah Grizzlies continue the 5 game road trip this Friday and Saturday in the Black Hills against the Rapid City Rush. 7:00 pm face-off each night.

The Grizzlies scored 21 goals in 3 games last week, led  by Josh Dickinson’s 7 goal week and Travis Barron, who had 4 goals and 4 assists last week. The Grizz outscored opponents 21 to 10, with the highlight being a 10-4 win over Allen on November 18th. The last time the Grizz had scored in double digits was on November 15thth, 1995 vs Chicago in the IHL days.

Josh Dickinson, what can you say. He’s the sure bet to win league player of the week honors after scoring 2 hat tricks last week and in the 3 games had 7 goals and 1 assist. He leads the league with 7 goals. He is also 2nd in the league with 22 shots on goal. He likes to get the scoring going early as every Dickinson goal was scored in the first 24 minutes and 10 seconds of the game.

Josh is happy to have a teammate like Tim McGauley. In 4 of Dickinson’s 7 goals, Tim McGauley got an assist. McGauley scored his first goal of the season in last Saturday’s 5-4 overtime loss to Allen.

Next homestand for the Grizzlies is on Saturday, November 2nd at 7 pm and Sunday, November 3rd at 1 pm against the Idaho Steelheads. Tickets are available at utahgrizzlies.com, the Maverik Center box office or by calling (801) 988-8000.
