Hamilton optimistic

What type of team will the Kelowna Rockets have this season?

General Manager Bruce Hamilton is optimistic.

"When 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.

"I 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", Hamilton added.

The Rockets are trying to become the first WHL team since the Kamloops (94-95) Blazers to win back-to-back league titles.
