We would like to congratulate the voice of the Rockets' Trevor Miller on his new position with the national champion West Kelowna Warriors of the BCHL. Trevor leaves us after 3 years of dedicated service to the Okanagan Rockets. His famous call of the Rockets' 2014 Pacific Championship is a memory which all in our program can recall. We would like to wish him all the best with his new opportunity.
"Trevor was a professional everyday he came to the rink, he put in tireless hours preparing and commuting to help our program. He will be missed here at the Capital News Centre" said Okanagan Rockets GM Braeden Pistawka.
With the departure, the Rockets will be hiring a new broadcaster for the upcoming 2016-17 season. At the top of job qualifications required is dedication.
"We're very proud of how Trevor has developed as a broadcaster during his time with us. We would like to provide the opportunity to someone else who has always had the desire to become a sports broadcaster, but has lacked the opportunity to have a team to call games for. Getting a chance in the BCHL, or the WHL doesn't come around very often, and you need experience as proved by Trevor. We want to provide an individual the chance to call 20 games and help assist our media relations department as well." said Pistawka.
