The Coquitlam Adanacs remained in sixth place following a weekend split. Saturday June 17th in Nanaimo, the Adanacs defeated the slumping Timbermen 8-6. The Adanacs jumped out to a 4-0 lead 13 minutes into the contest and took a 5-3 advantage into the first intermission, with Cody Garrison picking up shorthanded and even strength markers. Trent Evans scored 2:39 into the second period, but the Timbermen roared back to tie the game at six by the seven minute mark. Jaxson Lee picked up his second tally of the evening and eventual game winner with 6:43 to go in the middle stanza and Nico McNabb added an insurance marker late in the contest to seal the deal for the Adanacs. Nanaimo outshot Coquitlam 40-38 with Hunter Wongstedt stopping 34 of 40 shots. Lee led team scoring with two goals and two assists.
Sunday June 18th at home, the Victoria Wolves came to town and stole a 10-8 decision from the Adanacs despite being outshot 54-42. The Wolves held leads of 2-1 and 6-4 after 20 and 40 minutes, repectively, but Coquitlam clawed back to take the lead with 7 1/2 minutes left in regulation only to have Victoria tie the game 30 seconds later and then score twice in the final minute and a half to take the win away. Jaxson Lee had three goals and two assists to lead scoring for the second straight night, with Jeremy Funk and Hunter Wongstedt combining to stop 32 of 42 shots.
