A BRIEF HISTORY OF AREA HOCKEY

Top

BEGINNINGS

Seniors:

The Vernon region has had a rich and storied hockey history, with the first teams being organized in the late 1890's.

The senior teams of the area had won the Coy Cup, BC Championship, with Enderby winning the first in 1923, Vernon won three straight and Lumby won a few times in the 1930's.

Vernon Senior hockey continued into the '40's and '50's with the Okanagan Senior Hockey League beign formed during this time, it included teams from Vernon, Kelowna, Kamloops and Penticton.

The league folded in 1961 but, not before some noteable players emerged. One such player, whom many Vernon Jr. A hockey fans will recognize, was Norman "Odie" Lowe Jr. Odie would, after retiring from senior hockey, become a long time coach of the Vernon Jr. A teams.

Juniors:

As far a junior age teams go there were the BX Monarchs of the late 1930's, the Hydrophones Midgets and the Vernon Bombers Juvenile & Juniors of the early 1940's.

VERNON JR. CANADIANS

Top

The Vernon Jr. Canadians along with the Penticton Jr. Vees, Kelowna Buckaroos and Kamloops Jr. Rockets, four junior "B" teams, formed the Okanagan-Mainline Junior 'A' Hockey League in 1961 on the advise and determination of Canadians' owner Bill Brown. This was the Vernon Jr. Canadians and the Vernon franchises' inaugural season.

Statistics wise, it was not a very successful season for the Vernon Jr. Canadains ... success, was the fact, that they played their first season as a junior 'A' team.

VERNON BLADES

The franchise changed its name to the Vernon Blades for the start of the 1962-63 season. They would remain the Vernon Blades through till the end of the 1966-67 season.

Jr. Canadians owner, Bill Brown, sold the team to Vern Dye and seventeen others, for three hundred dollars each, who bought it for Vernon Minor Hockey. Two years later Vernon Minor Hockey sold the club to Vern Dye for five thousand dollars.

VERNON ESSOS

For the 1967-68 season the Vernon franchise, changed its name to the Vernon Essos. They would remain the Vernon Essos through till the end of the 1972-73 season.

Vernon Essos Logo 1969-70

The Esso's were named after the title sponsor, Ernies Esso Station, located at 3200 32nd Street in Vernon. The team was commonly called "Ernies Esso's" in conversations around town, as Ernie Kowal was the teams new co-owner(along w/Vern Dye).

Playoff success for the Vernon Essos came in 1970 when they won the franchises first league pennant and league championship. They would repeat that feat again in 1972.

The Essos were automatice winners of the provincial, Mowat Cup, those same years. They were also Abbott Cup (Western Canadian) runners-up in 1970 and BC vs Alta runners-up in 1972.

For the 1973-74 season the Vernon franchise, changed its name to the Vernon Vikings. They would remain the Vernon Vikings through till the end of the 1977-78 season.

Even though the Vernon Vikings won the league pennant in 1976 they bowed out in the second round of the playoffs that year, losing nine points to one, in a eight point series (4L - 1T).

After sixteen consecutive playoff appearances, for the franchise, the Vernon Vikings were the first team to not make them in 1978.

VERNON CANADIANS

Top

Vernon Canadians Logo 1978

For the 1978-79 season the Vernon franchise was known as the Vernon Canadians. It was the only season that this name was used, although in 1961 they were known as the Jr. Canadians.

Top

VERNON LAKERS (Carl Enemark Era)

Top

Vernon Lakers Logo 1980-89

After a one years leave of absence the franchise adopted a new name, the Vernon Lakers, for the 1980-81 season. They kept that name till the end of 1982-83 season.

Carl Pedersen Enemark(and his wife Ivy), of Enemark & Campbell Realty, purchases the Lakers from Vern Dye after the 1981-82 season.

Enemark sells the Lakers to Mel Lis of Lis Equipment Rental Ltd., after the 1985-86 season.

Top

VERNON ROCKETS

Top

NOTE: The validity of the name Rockets seems to be contraversial. Some sources still refer to them as the Lakers. I have listed them here as the Rockets until I find proof they were in fact know as the Lakers. I you can supply that PROOF please, do so!

For the 1983-84 season the Vernon franchise was known as the Vernon Rockets. They had an extremly good season winning forty-five games but, lost in the first round of the playoffs, 4 games to 2.

VERNON LAKERS (Mel Lis Era) 2-Time National Champions

Top

Vernon Lakers Logo 1990-95

The second installment of the Vernon Lakers came in the 1984-85 season. They remained the Vernon Lakers through till the end of the 1994-95 season.

It was this version of the franchise that started what was to become a dominate player in junior 'A' hockey, in the league, regional and national levels.

Not once in the eleven seasons of league play did they fall under the five-hundred mark and they made the playoffs every season. The Vernon Lakers entered the regional playdowns in consecutive years and made the national tournament four years straight, culminating in two National Championships, 1990 and 1991.

The Vernon Lakers accomplishment of four National Championship appearances, 1989 - 1992, remains a Canadian junior "A" hockey record.

Mel Lis sold the Lakers to oral and maxillofacial surgeon Dr. James Duncan Wray after the 1991-92 season.

By the end to the 1994-95 season the Vernon Lakers brought the franchise from the negative to the positive side of the wins versus losses category. They did this in both the regular season and playoffs statistics.

VERNON VIPERS (Wray Era)

Top

Vernon Vipers Logo 1996

For the 1995-96 season the Vernon franchise changed its name to the Vernon Vipers and presently retains that name.

This portion of the franchise has established itself as an elite junior "A" hockey team in league, regional and national levels.


1996, was one of Vernons' best seasons as they finished the regular portion winning 43 games, losing 13 and tying 4. The Vernon Vipers defeated the Langley Thunder for the League title, 4 games to 1. In regional playdowns that year they defeated the Prince George Spruce Kings (Rocky Mountain JHL) for the Mowat Cup, 3 games to 0. Then faced a tough Saint Albert Saints (Alberta Junior Hockey League) team, winning 4 games to 3, to claim the Doyle Cup. The Abbott Cup, which was awarded during a national tournament round-robin game, was awarded to the Melfort Mustangs (Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League), as they defeated the Vernon Vipers, 5-1. The Vernon Vipers had an even round-robin during the national tournament, winning 2 games and losing 2. In the semi-final of the tournament game the Vernon Vipers defeated the Newmarket 87's (Ontario Provincial Junior A Hockey League), 7-4. The Vernon Vipers opponent for the final was the, host, Melfort Mustangs. The Vernon Vipers avenged the Abbott Cup loss, by winning the final, 2-0, claiming the franchises third national title, the inaugural Royal Bank Cup.


Three short years after winning the inaugural Royal Bank Cup Vernon once again returned to the National stage, in 1999. The Vernon Vipers accomplished this by capping an amazing season of 52 wins and 6 loses with 2 Ties, which is currently the franchises best season also. The Vernon Vipers defeated the Chilliwack Chiefs for the League title, Fred Page Cup. The Mowat Cup was a mixed blessing as the Vernon Vipers won but, not without controversy. The Kimberley Dynamiters (Rocky Mountain JHL) won 1 game of the 4 played. It was the first time a team from the Rocky Mountain Junior Hockey League defeated a team from the British Columbia Hockey League. It should be noted however, that Vernon played with a Junior "B" backup goaltender in the loss, (7-6) due to injury of their regular goaltenders. The Doyle Cup was easily won by the Vernon Vipers, 4 games to 1, over the Calgary Canucks (Alberta JHL). The Vernon Vipers did it all the hard-way in the Royal Bank Cup Tournament winning only once during round-robin play. That one win was enough though, to claim the Abbott Cup defeating the Estevan Bruins (Saskatchewan JHL), 3-2. After that dismal showing in the round-robin the Vernon Vipers still managed to advance to the semi-finals. In that semi, the Bramalea Blues (Ontario Provincial JHL) were defeated, 3-2. The Royal Bank Cup final was an absolute blow-out as the Vernon Vipers hammered the Charlottetown Abbies (Maritime Junior A Hockey League), 9-3, claiming the franchises fourth National Championship in ten years and second Royal Bank Cup.


The 2000-01 season turned out to be an extreme disappointment for the franchise as the Vernon Vipers failed to make the playoffs, the first time since 1982.


Maintaining a competitive level in the league for the next few years the Vernon Vipers would eventually set a Canadian Record.

In 2009 the Vernon Vipers swept through the league playoffs defeating the Penticton Vees four games to one, the Salmon Arm Silverbacks four games to two and the Powell River Kings four games to two. The Vernon Vipers would then literally breeze though the regional and national series with ten straight wins and no losses. They defeated the Grande Prairie Storm for the Doyle Cup, and in the Royal Bank Cup Tournament they defeated all teams in the round-robin, the Kingston Voyageurs, 6-3, in the semi-final and the Humboldt Broncos, 2-0, in the final, winning the franchises fifth national title and third Royal Bank Cup.

The Canadian Record ?, with five National Titles, Vernon is the only Jr. A Franchise in Canada to have that distinction !


Once again, in 2010, the Vernon Vipers win the Royal Bank Cup. Only the third time a team has won back-to-back National Championships, the previous two being in 1981 & 1982 Prince Albert Raiders, 1990 & 1991 Vernon Lakers.

The Vipers were League and Divisional Pennant winners with 105 points, second all-time for the Franchise, finishing with a League record of 51W-6L-0T-3OL. Having avoided the Elimination Round, the Vipers met up with the 5th place Quesnel Millioniares in the Quarter Finals defeating them 4 games to 2. The Penticton Vees were the Vipers' next victum in the Semi Finals winning also by a result of 4 games to 2. In the BCHL Finals the Vernon Vipers would once again take on the Powell River Kings. Looking for revenge from thier loss in 2009, to the Vipers, the Kings took Vernon to a game seven. The Vipers won that game by a score of 3-1, advancing them to the Doyle Cup.

The Doyle Cup series also went to seven games, against the Spruce Grove Saints, with Vernon winning 7-3.

The National Jr. A Tournament was held in Dauphin, Manitoba. The Vernon Vipers record in the Round Robin, 3W-1L, Dauphin Kings 5-6 L ot, La Ronge Ice Wolves 4-2 W, Oakville Blades 5-3 W and Brockville Braves 4-2 W. In the Semi Final Vernon once again took on the Brockville Braves earning a shut-out winning 2-0. The Final was a blow-out for the Vernon Vipers. Taking on the Host, Dauphin Kings, the Vipers annialiated Dauphin for a 8-1 win, giving the Vernon Vipers thier 4th Royal Bank Cup.

The Vernon Vipers 4th National Title ties them with the Prince Albert Raiders, although it is the 6th for the Franchise which is a Canadian Record.


Vernon Vipers Logo 2011

A speacial note on the 2010-11 season for the Vipers was that of the 60 regular season games played 20 went to overtime. Their record for those overtime games is, 20GP - 7W - 9L - 4T. 1\3 of a season went to overtime, gotta be some sort of record !


After not advanceing to the playoffs for both the 2011-12 & 2012-13 seasons, under head coach Jason Williamson, the Vipers would return to winning ways in 2013-14. The Vipers advanced thru the three rounds before falling in the league final to Coquitlam, however, the Vipers were earlier chosen to host the Royal Bank Cup, where they went as far as the semifinals.


In the 2014-15 season Mark Ferner would once again take the riegns of the Vipers. In his 4 years at the helm, the Vipers have yet to make it past the Divisional Round. In Marks final season as head coach of the Vipers, in 2019, the Vipers made it all the way to the league finals.


Duncan Wray

Vipers Owner,Dr. Duncan Wray , passed away on January 11, 2018. His wife Libby became owner and governor upon his passing. Since buying the team in 1992, Wray became known as a very hands-on team owner, always interacting with fans, and watching his Vipers play. During Wray's time as the Vipers owner, the team won twelve (12) Interior Conference pennants, three (3) BCHL regular season titles, seven (7) BCHL Championships, and six (6) Doyle Cups, four (4) National Championships plus once runner up. Duncan Wray was inducted into the BC Hockey Hall of Fame in 2011, with his 1998-99 Vernon Vipers following suit in 2016.

Vernon Vipers Logo 2019

The Vernon Vipers Hockey Club announced an ownership change September 7, 2018. The Club has been sold by owner Libby Wray and has been purchased by Tom and John Glen.

Jason McKee became the Vipers head coach for the 2019-2020 season, replacing Mark Ferner. During this season the Vipers managed a record of 30-24-2-2 for 64 points. This put them in 5th place of the Interior Division and 8th place in the league. Playing the 4th place, Wenatchee Wild in the first round, they won the series 4 games to 1. However the entire playoffs were cancelled after the league first round due to the Covid-19 Pandemic.


The Covid Panemic continued into the 2020-21 season however, the Provincial Health Office eased restrictions enough to allow the league to play an extended exhibition/traning season from September 25 to November 19. The "Okanagan Cup' tournament was established, for this pre-season, which included Penticton, Salmon Arm and West Kelowna. Penticton defeated the Vipers in the final to take the cup.

For the 20 game regular season the Vipers played in a so called "POD" along with Salmon Arm and West Kelowna. The Vipers claimed top spot, recording a record of 13-5-1-1 for 28 points.
