Championship rings stolen

Thieves have made off with two national Junior A championship rings belonging to West Kelowna Warriors head coach Rylan Ferster.

The rings were stolen from inside Ferster's truck sometime late last Saturday night, or early Sunday morning.

The truck was parked in front of his home on Francis Avenue in Kelowna. The theft was discovered Sunday morning.

The stolen rings were the 1990 Centennial Cup ring Ferster won as a member of the then Vernon Lakers, and the 2016 RBC Cup ring he captured as head coach of the Warriors.

The Centennial Cup was the national Jr. A championship until 1995 when it was renamed the RBC Cup.

The 1990 ring has the Vernon Lakers logo on the side, while the 2016 version features the Warriors logo on the face and Triple Crown on one side.

Both rings have Ferster's name engraved on them.

When asked which one was more special, Ferster said both for different reasons, although he admits he appreciated the 2016 championship more because he was able to appreciate the sacrifices more at an older age.

"I really feel bad because I promised the rings to my daughters, and they have already picked out the one they want," he said.

"I guess that means I'll have to get them replaced."

Or, get them returned.

If you have any information on the whereabouts of these rings, contact Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300.
