News & Notes

  • Big news out of Vernon, as Mark Ferner has stepped down as Head Coach & GM  of the Vipers. Jason Williamson has been promoted to fill his role. Jon Keen with Radio NL out of Kamloops had the story on Twitter. Keen speculated that Ferner will be named HC in Everett with the Silvertips. You can read the press release on the Vipers website here. You can follow Jon Keen on Twitter @JonKeenNLSports
  • Staying within the coaching circle, the Salmon Silverbacks have named Colin O'Hara as their newest Head Coach & GM. O'Hara takes over from Tim Kehler who resigned last week. O'Hara just completed his first season with the 'Backs and isn't new to the BCHL. O'Hara has made stops in Vernon and Quesnel and was most recently the HC in Nipawin of the SJHL.
  • The Vancouver Canucks will have a noticeable BCHL flavour at their Development Camp opens up this week. Former Vee Joey Lelaggia, Eagle Karel St. Laurent, Grizzlie Justin Courtnall King/Capital Chris Rawlings and future Cap Brendon Tanev.
  • The latest version of the Chilliwack Chiefs franchise has lauched their website today. You can find it at http://www.chilliwackchiefs.net/. The team hasn't released a logo yet but expect the one we have seen in recent years. However, looking at the colours they are using on the site, maybe maroon red and gold will be the teams colour scheme.
