The Okanagan Rockets are proud to announce that 17 year old forward Linden Hora has received a commitment from the Vernon Vipers of the BCHL for the 2014-2015 season.
"We are very proud of Linden achieving his goal of playing Junior "A" hockey next season with a great program like the Vernon Vipers." said Rockets general manager David Michaud. "Linden had several team pursuing him in both the BCHL and the AJHL, so for him to settle on Vernon is a big deal, we couldn't be happier for him."
Hora posted 18 goals in the regular season for the Rockets and then posted several clutch goals for them in the post season. Hora notched the game winning goal in overtime at the Telus Cup to help the Rockets claim bronze at the national event.
Hora becomes the latest member of the 2013-2014 Rockets to secure a spot in Junior hockey for the coming season. "Linden had some options in Junior B last season and we encouraged him to give our program a shot. He had a solid season and now will realize his goal of playing Junior "A". It's a really great example of having a little patience, and putting yourself in a position to succeed."
