Eric Blais New KMHA Head Coach

A proven winner behind the bench, Eric Blais hopes to transfer his vision and passion to the continuing success of the Kelowna Minor Hockey Association overall.

A 13-year veteran of the local coaching ranks, Blais has been hired as the new head coach of the 1,500-member KMHA. And while he’s still putting some finishing touches on his business as a commercial artist, Blais is already hard at work on his new job.
