Kambeitz, who recorded 11 goals on the checking line with the Royals last year, is coming off a scary injury from the 2018 playoffs and spent the summer rehabilitating before coming back to training camp in September. With a big turnover in the Royals’ roster this year, Victoria will be relying heavily on their returning players to make an impact, one of them being Kambeitz. The Royals begin their season on Friday, Sep. 21 when they host the Prince George Cougars at the Save-on-Foods Memorial Centre.
