League Play Game Changes

The long wait is over for the WHL with the BCHL suiting up playing in five pods around the province putting their game back on ice after a long extended wait.

The return doesn’t mean the teams won’t play without problems and such is the case with the WHL Kelowna Rockets being hit with concern from COVID-19 related issues.

We received the following notice from Taylor Rocca, Director, Communications for the WHL and wanted to share.
