Hunter Miska and the Vees preparing for Merritt tomorrow

Hunter Miska and the Vees preparing for Merritt tomorrow

Time to dust off the keyboard and pass along a few updates on the Penticton Vees as they gear up for the regular season on September 19th. The Vees wrap-up their exhibition schedule tomorrow afternoon when they host the Merritt Centennials at the SOEC for a 5:30pm face-off. To get you set for tomorrow’s tilt with the Cents’ here’s a few links to get you primed.

Tyson Jost, 16, is embarking on his first BCHL season and he say’s he owes a lot of his success to his work ethic. Where does he get that from? His mother Laura of course. Emanuel Sequeira from the Penticton Western News interviewed Jost about his hockey journey. READ HERE 

Speaking of work ethic, Cody DePourcq busted his butt (surprise, surprise) this summer in preparation of his fourth season with the Vees. He says he leaned a few things but rubbing elbows with a few pros. READ HERE 

Want to get the 411 on the Vees opponent this Sunday? Check out Ian Webster’s article in the Merritt Herald about the Cents’ whittling down their roster ahead of Sunday’s exhibition finale. READ HERE 

The Centennials are almost set roster wise for the upcoming season, as they have 20 of a maximum 22 players listed on their roster page on the BCHL website. VIEW HERE

BCHL Quick Hits:

The defending BCHL Champion Coquitlam Express unveiled a new look today. The logo remains the same but the Express have swapped out the red/black/white palate for blue/yellow/white. The swap comes to fall in line with Coquitlam minor hockey who have similar colours. Take a look HERE 

Glad to see this returning, as the BCHL, Subway and the newly minted TSN radio Vancouver have teamed up to air the weekly radio show, “Subway BCHL This Week.” Throughout the regular season, every Saturday morning from 9:30am to 10am host Jeff Paterson will talk all things BCHL. The first episode was this morning on TSN 1410 and featured, BCHL Commissioner John Grisdale, Merritt forward Daniel Nachbaur, Coquitlam coach Barry Wolff and Cowichan captain Kyle Horsman.
