Rockets release 2014-2015 schedule

  • The 2014-2015 Western Hockey League regular season schedule for the Kelowna Rockets was released this morning. The team will raise two banners to the rafters when they open the season September 20th against the visiting Kamloops Blazers. The Rockets are BC Division champions and WHL regular season champs.
  • The Rockets make an earlier visit to Prince George with back to back games September 26th and 27th. I guess I am bringing my golf clubs. Al Bristowe, make the tee-time please!
  • 15 of the teams first 24 games will be played on the road.
  • The Rockets play one 'road' double header this season. The Rockets visit the Portland Winterhawks on October 30th and November 1st.
  • The Rockets host the Winterhawks in a double header at Prospera Place on November 21st and 22nd.
  • The Rockets enjoy two - five game home stands.
  • The most significant news out of the Rockets schedule is the team does not play three games in three nights. Nope..not even once.
  • The bad news? If you are a Rockets season ticket holder you won't see the defending WHL champion Edmonton Oil Kings at all at Prospera Place. The Rockets face the Oil Kings on their own turf on December 16th.
  • This is a little concerning. The Rockets play three games in four nights 12 times.
