BCHL unveil retro jerseys

The BC Hockey League Thursday unveiled throwback jerseys designed by each of the 18 member teams to help celebrate the league's 60th season.

Each team designed retro jerseys as a way to pay homage to hockey's past in their community.

West Kelowna Warriors president Chris Laurie designed the jersey his team will wear on their special retro night, Dec. 29.
