The owner of the Vernon Vipers is downplaying rumours about a pending sale of the BC Hockey League team.
Libby Wray tells Beach Radio News in an email, she has “no comment on the rumours,” but adds “people love to gossip.”
“We are preparing for the start of training camp and are looking forward to another exciting season of hockey,” says Mrs. Wray.
There has been rumours that a sale of the team may be imminent.
Mrs. Wray took over ownership of the team when her husband — Duncan Wray — died in January.
Duncan Wray bought the team in 1992 when it was the Vernon Lakers, changing the name to Vipers in 1995.
