Pre-season set for Kelowna Rockets

The Rockets begin the 2019-2020 with a six-game pre-season

The Kelowna Rockets have given fans a look at the upcoming pre-season games.

After a busy WHL Draft and off-season, the Rockets’ upcoming pre-season games will help determine how the team is looking as it heads into the 2019-2020 season, where they will host the Memorial Cup next May.

The Rockets will return to Prospera Place Aug. 30 for the first of a six-game pre-season. Kelowna will host the Victoria Royals in one of three home games leading up to the WHL regular season.

Before the pre-season can begin, the Rockets have a few big names expected to be called in the upcoming NHL draft starting June 21. Nolan Foote, Kaedan Korczak and Lassi Thomson are a trio of Rockets who have been scouted to be potential first-round picks.
