Vees Win 2015 Western Canada Cup, Barrow Commits to Rivermen, Hards Set to Join Spruce Kings, Roseboom Added to Chiefs:

For the second time since the inaugural tournament three years ago, a BCHL team has claimed the Western Canada Cup championship. Connor Chartier scored 2:59 into overtime to give Penticton a 4-3 win over Portage to claim the title Saturday night. The Vees and Terriers were already guaranteed spots in the RBC Cup (Portage as host, and Penticton as one of the two finalists at the WCC), so both teams were playing to have their name engraved on the trophy. The Vees are the second BCHL team to win the Western Canada Cup after Surrey did back in 2013.
