The Penticton Vees are looking to extend their winning streak to 11 games as they face the Salmon Arm Silverbacks on Wednesday night at the South Okanagan Events Centre.

The last place team in the Interior Division, the Silverbacks (12-15-3-0), visited the SOEC on Nov. 24, losing in overtime thanks to Owen Sillinger who scored just 42 seconds into the extra period.
The Vees beat them, 6-2 the other time they met this season, in September.
The Vees will continue to be without defencemen Jonny Tychonick and Ryan O’Connell who made the Canada West team for the World Junior A Challenge.
