The U15 AAA Greater Vancouver Canadians closed out their regular-season schedule by splitting their two games at Kelowna’s MNP Place, beating the Okanagan Rockets 3-2 on Saturday before losing to them 4-2 on Sunday.

The Canadians finished the regular season fifth in the U15 standings, with a final record of 12-15-1-2 for 27 points.
