Vipers owner gets hall pass

BCHL, Vernon Vipers

Two men with strong BCHL ties were inducted into the B.C. Hockey Hall of Fame last weekend. Vernon Vipers owner Duncan Wray and ex-New Westminster Royals defenceman Jack McIlhargey joined retired NHL official Rob Schick, members of the 1986 Penticton Knights and former NHLer Joe Sakic at the induction ceremony, held at Penticton’s South Okanagan Events Centre.

Wray has owned the Vipers since 1992, overseeing a six-time national championship team.

Jack McIlhargey played with the Royals in 1970-71 before going on to a lengthy NHL career with the Vancouver Canucks, Philadelphia Flyers and Hartford Whalers,

The crowd of nearly 700 at the ceremony included such hockey luminaries as Brian Burke, Pat Quinn, Stan Smyl, Harold Snespts, Andy Moog, Laurence Gilman, Darcy Rota and Bob Nicholson.
