Rockets release December home schedule

The Golden Rockets have released their December home schedule.


Due to the chiller being out of commission for the foreseeable future at the Golden Arena, the following will be the home game schedule in the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League through the balance of the month.


The regularly scheduled home game, Nov. 29, 2019 hosting the Osoyoos Coyotes has been rescheduled for Feb. 22, 2020 at the Golden Arena.


“We are excited to bring some hockey games to Cranbrook and create some good out of a tough situation for Golden and their team,” says Cranbrook Bucks president Nathan Lieuwen in a release. “It was a no-brainer for us to help out and bring their home games here.”


“We are thrilled that our fellow Kootenay hockey club has welcomed us in our time of need,” says Rockets coach-GM Jeremy Blumes in a release. “It’s a great opportunity for our boys as well as other KIJHL teams to showcase themselves to the BCHL’s newest franchise. We are grateful for the support from Nathan and the Bucks organization as well as a number of other individuals that have got us back on the ice. Our club is looking forward to playing in front of the great hockey community of Cranbrook.”
