Vipers Season One Month Away:

With no Vipers hockey for the past 100 days, the Vernon Vipers are just thirty one days away from opening day of training camp. The Vipers will open main camp August 21st. The Vipers last played April 10th after a very disappointing 3-1 loss at the South Okanagan Events Centre in Game 7 vs the Penticton Vees in the Interior Division Finals.

The Vipers will open the pre-season schedule with a home & home series vs the Salmon Arm Silverbacks starting with the first game August 25th in Vernon at Kal Tire Place. The Snakes will play four exhibition games before opening the 2017-18 regular season with a home & home series vs the Salmon Arm Silverbacks with the first game September 8th in Salmon Arm at the Shaw Centre.

No official report from the Vipers on who will be returning from last years club, but the Morning Star Newspaper has reported two separate stories regarding players returning for the upcoming season.

This was reported in the Morning Star Newspaper back in May before the Vipers Spring Camp:

The core group, including Brett Stapley, Jagger Williamson, Steven and Chris Jandric, Michael Ufberg, Shane Kelly, Jesse Lansdell and Niko Karamanis, is returning to the Viper den.

This was in Sunday's Morning Star Newspaper:

The Vipers camp opens Aug. 21 at Kal Tire Place with three teams scrimmaging. Vernon’s returnintg core is led by forwards Jagger Williamson, Brett Stapley and Niko Karamanis and defencemen Michael Ufberg and Chris Jandric. Taylor is back in net.

We have a good core of returning players. I hope the new additions work well with our veterans. Looking forward to August.
