Where are they now - Chris Ray

Chris Ray
The Kelowna Rockets 2003-2004 Memorial Cup championship team will be inducted into the BC Hockey Hall of Fame this Friday. I thought it would be interesting this week to look at where some of the players that season are now hanging their hats.
Let's look back at forward Chris Ray, who was a fresh face on the Rockets roster that season.  
What a rookie season for Chris Ray. In 2003-2004, the West Kelowna product was playing for his home town team as a 17 year-old.
Ray would play in 54 games that season collecting just five goals. Despite the modest totals, Ray would play four full seasons with the Rockets including the 2006-2007 campaign when he was named the team captain.
Following his WHL career, the well spoken forward would spend five years at the University of Waterloo.  
What is Chris Ray up to now? The 28 year-old is a father of a three year old boy (London) and a 15 month old daughter (Matilda).
Ray works in Vernon but lives in Kelowna as an Environmental Scientist.
