What type of team will the Kelowna Rockets have this season?
General Manager Bruce Hamilton is optimistic.
you look at (Rourke) Chartier, (Nick) Merkley and our overage guys like
(Tyson) Ballie, those kind of players. Throw in young (Dillon) Dube
now, this team will score some goals. We will be really solid in goal".
Hamilton isn't ruling out acquiring a veteran defenceman this
season with the loss of captain Madison Bowey and overager Cole Martin.
don't anticipate us having many problems on defence. All those young
guys that will have to play, played lots with the older guys, so we are
excited about our team. At this time of the year all teams think they
have a chance to win and that's important to start the season that way",
The Rockets are trying to become the first WHL team since the Kamloops (94-95) Blazers to win back-to-back league titles.
