Seven-year-old Grace Nelson takes in the Kamloops Blazers-Kootenay Ice game at Interior Savings Centre on Friday, Dec. 6.

The Blazers were thumped 7-3 and dropped a 7-0 decision the next night to the visiting Everett Silvertips. Kamloops is having a season to forget and sit in second-last spot in the Western Hockey League with a record of 6-20-6.

The Blazers’ 16 points are four more than cellar-dwelling Lethbridge.

The young Blue and Orange squad has tied the club record for consecutive losses at 12 and begins a six-game Prairie road trip on Tuesday, Dec. 10, in Brandon. From there, Kamloops will play the six games in eight nights, travelling to Brandon, Regina, Prince Albert, Saskatoon, Moose Jaw and Swift Current before enjoying the Christmas break.

The Blazers will return home for a Sunday, Dec. 29, game against Vancouver.
