Keeping with the festival theme of the Showcase event, the BCHL is introducing a new fun and interactive Hockey House for the two Penticton dates. This feature will include a variety of activities for kids, fans and BCHL families and friends.
The BCHL will host a panel on Saturday, Oct. 5 that will include former NHL players and current BCHL dads Mike Richter, Doug Weight and Dixon Ward as well as BCHL Commissioner Chris Hebb. The discussion will cover their playing careers, why their sons chose to play in the BCHL and the game of hockey today.
Hockey House will include an area for kids to test their hockey skills or just have fun. These activities will include:
- Mascot competition
- Inflatable bounce house
- Shooting accuracy station
- Bauer hockey experience
TSN 1040 will broadcast their afternoon drive show live from the Hockey House in Penticton from 3-7 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 4. Hosts Matt Sekeres and Blake Price have broadcast live from the BCHL Showcase Festival for the past several years, and are making the trip to the Okanagan this year to interview hockey personalities from the BCHL, NCAA and NHL live from the event.
