Nick ardanaz has commited with the West Kelowna warriors? When did this happen?

Vernon has perhaps five defencemen returning: Judson, Fuller, Taylor, Kim, and Dow-Kenny. Ardanaz probably saw a better chance to be in the top 4 in Kelowna.

This doesn't belong in a thread about mascots battling it out.

You can't be shocked that this is happening. I'm sure there could be a number of players who decomitt or ask to be traded because of the coaching change

I talked to a friend this afternoon who checked out the mascot games over the weekend, and said there was only ten people in attendance.
