In any other year, the stands would be packed with fans with the Okanagan Cup on the line. But COVID-19 has prevented any fans in the stands at the SOEC.

Fans can still catch all the action on BCHLTV.ca, HockeyTV app and Shaw Spotlight.

The Vees have been crushing the Okanagan Cup tournament, winning game after game with a very impressive 12-1-0-0 record.

The Penticton Vees regular season is expected to start in December.
