In a supportive gesture to the Kelowna Chiefs, the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League will add GS stickers to every player’s helmet this season.
The GS is in remembrance of Grant Sheridan, the Chiefs’ general manager and owner who died on July 28 after a battle with bacterial meningitis.
We’d like to acknowledge the @KIJHL and the first class gesture of putting GS stickers on the back of each players helmets within the league for the 2019/20 season. Thank-You for everyone’s comments, prayers and kind gestures. They’ll never be forgotten – nor will Grant Sheridan. pic.twitter.com/6kiEdQGk8E

Sheridan was a massive supporter of local and youth hockey programs and was well-loved in Rutland, where the Chiefs play, as well as the hockey community across the Okanagan.
The Chiefs return to action Sept. 13.
