League president’s statement about the Oceanside Generals

'There are going to be challenges,' says Myles Parsons

(Editor’s note: with all the changes — both on and off the ice — to the Oceanside Generals this season, we asked Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League president Myles Parsons for a comment about the Generals. What follows is Parsons’ e-mail response to NEWS sports reporter Tyson Taylor, unedited.)

 

“The Oceanside Generals have been in the League since 1990, and like almost every other team have had changes of leadership from time to time. There are going to be challenges. I am confident that the new team management will work very hard, to make the Generals a success, both on and off the ice. The bond between the players and their Fans was amazing to watch at Saturdays game (a loss). With the support of the Fans the Management and the League, the Gens will be moving forward.”
