It’s an early Christmas present! The BCHL and the Powell River Kings have launched a new website system and stats upgrade that’ll take effect beginning December 30th. It means that all 17 teams received new websites to build and fans will get a different look at team and player stats as well. The system is the same one that the Canadian Hockey League uses for its leagues (WHL, OHL, QMJHL) and is closely tied in with FastHockey, the league’s PPV video provider.
The launch of the new website means some changes for the blog, as I’ve made the decision to combine the two. For the last few years the main source of Kings news was the blog, while the old website often got overlooked by myself. Game recaps were rarely posted and it often sat un-updated for days. With the blog and website combining, it means (nearly) daily fresh content on the website and one spot for Kings fans to gather information on the team.
So after 4 and a half seasons, 989 posts and 300,000 views…this will be the last post on this incarnation of “Kings of the Castle”.

Enjoy Kings fans!
