Kamloops Blazers TicketsThe Kamloops Blazers is a junior ice hockey team based out of Kamloops, British Columbia. As part of the Western Hockey League’s B.C. Division of the Western Conference, the Blazers face off against some of the toughest teams in the sport each year for honor, glory and ownership of the coveted Ed Chynoweth Cup, a prize they’ve taken six times so far. First established in 1966, the Blazers have gone through many changes over the years from their position as a founding WHL team to today, though they’ve always remained one of the most consistently competitive groups in the league. Whether they’re playing out of Kamloops’ own Sandman Centre or taking the fight to the other teams’ hometowns, the team strives to do its best to increase its number of championship and Memorial Cup wins as the years go by.
