Chris Crowell's Jersey Retirement Ceremony-Tribute Video:
Vernon Vipers Retire #18
Posted by HockeyTube on Jan 31st, 2016
The BCHL Vernon Vipers who have won a record 6-National Junior A Championships since 1990, retired only their second jersey in the team’s history. On January 29th, 2016 the Vipers raised former captain Chris Crowell’s #18 jersey to the rafters, honouring one of the fiercest players to ever wear a Viper’s uniform. During a time when fighting was a big part of the sport…Crowell was one of the toughest players Vernon fans have ever watched. In fact you can see his highlights video below,
The Williams Lake native played for Vernon for four years and was captain of the 2009 RBC champion team. He earned a scholarship that year and attended the University of Alaska Anchorage. The 27 year old now lives in Kamloops with his wife.
The only other player to have his Vipers jersey retired is #20 Rob Short.
