A note to Rockets fans from Liam Kindree

Marissa Baecker

Dear Kelowna,


Thank you.

Thank you to Bruce Hamilton and Lorne Frey for allowing me to don the Kelowna Rockets colours for four years. When I was drafted on May 7th, 2015, my life was changed forever. Having the honour of saying that I was a Kelowna Rocket was, and will always be, one of the biggest honours of my life.

To the coaches I’ve had, thank you. You guys have made me a more complete version of myself, on the ice and off. Every last one of you pushed me to be a better as a hockey player and member.

To my billets, Kim, Tracy, and billet bro Braydon, you have become my second family. You guys have been some of the most important, and loving people in my life. The endless sacrifices you’ve made, and have continued to make, for me since I walked in your front door are appreciated more than you know. You have been more than I could have ever asked for.

I want to thank all my teammates throughout the years. You guys have been great. You’ve held me accountable, pushed me every day, and supported me. I wish all of you the absolute best in your futures, wherever they take you.

Lastly thank you fans. In my time playing in Kelowna, you guys were the best fans to play for in the WHL. To step on the Prospera Place ice and play the game I love in front of you have been some of the most surreal moments in the world. It wouldn’t be anything without you, you guys make it special.
