Cheer on your Vees as they take on Red Bull Salzberg! Hockey club Red Bull Salzburg (Under-20 team) will be coming to the South Okanagan in late January, as part of a BCHL exhibition tour by the Austrian club’s youth team. The puck drops at 7:00 PM at the South Okanagan Events Centre (SOEC). Doors open at 6:00 PM.
the last time an international club came through the BCHL was in the 2009-10 season when the Malmo Redhawks of Sweden played in Powell River, Alberni Valley and Nanaimo. In 2008-09, the Sweden U18 side featuring Colorado Avalanche Captain Gabriel Landeskog played a series of exhibition games against BCHL teams.
The Red Bull Salzburg club, like the BCHL teams they’ll face, will include players born anywhere from 1995 to 1999. Most of the players are Austrian but there are some German-born players as well.
Red Bull Salzburg has several familiar faces in its executive including club director and former NHL head coach Pierre Pagé and skills coach, former NCAA star and NHLer Brian Savage.
