The West Kelowna Warriors Junior ‘A’ Hockey Club is pleased to announce the hiring of Rob Mitchell as the team’s public address announcer ahead of the 2018/2019 season.

Mitchell brings a ton of experience as a public address announcer in junior hockey, notably 14 years with the Western Hockey League’s Prince George Cougars. Mitchell now calls West Kelowna home and can’t wait for the home opener Sept. 8.

“I am extremely excited to be back at the rink again,” said Mitchell, “I want to thank Kim Dobranski and the Warriors organization for opportunity to get behind the mic and once again”.
