Cranbrook, BC (Dec 2nd 2019) – The Cranbrook Bucks (BCHL) and Golden Rockets (KIJHL) are excited to release the times and dates of the Golden Rockets home games for the month of December.
The Golden Rockets have been displaced from their home arena in Golden due to issues with their chiller system. Experts are currently working to fix the problem with the arena, but no timeline has been set.
“We are excited to bring some hockey games to Cranbrook and create some good out of a tough situation for Golden and their team.” Said Bucks President Nathan Lieuwen. “It was a no brainer for us to help out and bring their home games here.”
Coach and GM Jeremy Blumes commented ” We are thrilled that our fellow kootenay hockey club has welcomed us in our time of need. It’s a great opportunity for our boys as well as other KIJHL teams to showcase themselves to the BCHL’s newest franchise. We are grateful for the support from Nathan and the Bucks organization as well as a number of other individuals that have got us back on the ice. Our club is looking forward to playing in front of the great hockey community of Cranbrook.”.
Golden would also like to thank the City of Cranbrook and Cranbrook Minor Hockey for accommodating their schedule.
