The Kamloops Junior “B” Storm continue in a state of flux, after tampering charges against the team were upheld by BC Hockey.
Team Owner Barry Dewar doesn’t accept the ruling, and hopes to continue on with his plan to move away from the team.
“I’m 65-years-old, I need a succession plan. I’ve entered into an agreement with a group to buy the team,” said Dewar. “They made an offer that I have accepted, and hopefully we can move forward and have them own the team, and I don’t have to put up with this crap.”
On the bright side, Dewar’s one year suspension has been reduced to 90 days, and his fine has been reduced to $1,000.
That said, Dewar feels the feel the KIJHL has acted inappropriately, adding he has to think about the future “very carefully.”
