Rockets ready for pre-season

The end of the month can mean only one thing.

The start of hockey season in Kelowna.

The Rockets open the WHL pre-season tonight when they host the Victoria Royals.

Second year forward Liam Kindree says excited about taking a more prominent role with this years team.

"It is a different core this year. We lose big names from last years team. They are really successful players that have moved on to play in their respective NHL organizations. This year is a clean slate for everybody. Everybody will have an opportunity to make a name for themselves."

Game time tonight at Prospera Place is 7 o'clock.

If you can't make it tonight, don't worry, you can watch the Rockets in action tomorrow night when the Prince George Cougars come to town.
