BC Hockey League unveils new divisions for 2024-25 season – Okanagan


The BC Hockey League will have a new look next season after suddenly having to absorb five teams from Alberta in late January.

On Friday, the league issued a press release following its annual general meeting in late May, which saw the division realignment and the election of a new chairman for the board of directors.

Last season, and much before that, the league was split into two conferences: the Coastal Conference, which had nine teams, and the Interior Conference, which had eight.

The Interior West will consist of Penticton, Salmon Arm, Trail, Vernon and West Kelowna. The Interior East Division will consist of one BC team, Cranbrook, and five from Alberta (Blackfalds, Brooks, Cranbrook, Okotoks, Sherwood Park and Spruce Grove).

Five teams do not make the play-offs; two from the Coastal Conference and three from the Interior Conference.

The role of chairman will be taken over by Rich Murphy, owner of the Trail Smoke Eaters.

The league said he was elected unanimously after Penticton Vees owner Graham Fraser resigned after six years in the role.

This is an incredible honor, not only for me, but for Trail, the smallest market in the league, but one that has had a profound and historic impact on Canadian hockey.

I share the honor and joy of holding this important position with my team and with our community.

The league also said the contracts of commissioner Steven Cocker and Vice President of Hockey Operations Brad Lazarowich were extended.

The regular competition remains at 54 games.
