BC Hockey League held their November Road Show event at the West Fraser Centre in Quesnel.
Last weekend, two regular season games that were played between the Cowichan Valley Capitals and the Victoria Grizzlies was display the league in communities that don’t have a team.
Vice President of Hockey Operations, Brad Lazarowhich says the success was expected for a hockey town.
“From a perspective of a success for the league, good fan support, sold out on Saturday night and a really good crowd on Sunday, we did some school visits. Everything else was great.” says Lazarowhich.
Lazarowhich did note a negative from the event, which was the lack of minor hockey participation, due to the BCHL’s separation from Hockey Canada over the summer.
He’s sure parents would’ve loved their kids go on the ice, and be taught hockey fundamentals by the players, and hopes the policy gets looked at in the future.
On if the BCHL will make a return to either Quesnel or another community in the Cariboo, Lazarowhich says the league is open to any opportunities, and are always looking to take the road show to other communities.
