BCHL announces retro theme night schedule

The BC Hockey League has announced its schedule for the league’s retro theme nights initiative for the 60th Anniversary season.

BCHL teams will host a retro night in their arena where they will wear their brand-new retro jerseys and take their fans for a walk down memory lane by honouring the history of their franchise, the league and hockey in their region.

Retro nights will take place throughout the year, starting with an Oct. 16 date in Cowichan Valley and finishing Jan. 22 in Coquitlam.
