The Rockets spend the day practicing in Medicine Hat

The legendary play-by-play voice of the Medicine Hat Tigers, Bob Ridley, conducts a TV interview with Kelowna Rockets head coach Ryan Huska after Tuesday’s workout at the Arena.  Huska enters the game against Medicine Hat with 192 career regular season wins behind the bench. Ridley has called Tigers games since 1970, the year the team entered the WHL. Amazingly, he has missed just one game. The Rockets traveled just under a thousand kilometers to get to the 'Gas City'. Newly acquired Cody Fowlie will make his debut after being acquired off waivers earlier this week. Fowlie will wear sweater #18. Ryan Olsen will serve his third and final game of a three game suspension for a hit to the head major he received against the Victoria Royals two weeks ago. Olsen will be back in the line up Friday night when the Rockets visit the Red Deer Rebels. AM 1150 has Wednesday's game, starting with the pre-game show at 5:30 and the play-by-play at 6.
