Island’s WCL teams go all kooky for hockey, glad to see it back

March 31, 2021

NANAIMO and VICTORIA, B.C. — The two West Coast League teams on Vancouver Island found a special way to celebrate, together, the return of one sport we’ve all missed — hockey.

With the WHL now having returned to the ice, and the BCHL set to begin this week, both without fans, the Victoria HarbourCats and Nanaimo NightOwls decided to team up and welcome back teams such as the Victoria Royals and Grizzlies, Nanaimo Clippers, Port Alberni Bulldogs and Cowichan Valley Capitals.

There was only one way to do it right — with special edition HarbourCats and NightOwls/Bars hockey jerseys, teaming with SP Apparel to produce sublimated, laced, truly-one-of-a-kind hockey jerseys, specially designed by social media/design guru Chris Beveridge.

The HarbourCats stayed true to the blues of team colours, while the NightOwls brand and ‘novelty name’ Bars brand are unique to those looks.

“Why not, right? We’re in Canada, might as well play along — and show support how we can for our hockey friends,” said Jim Swanson, GM/Managing Partner of the HarbourCats and NightOwls/Bars.

“Watching hockey come back, and watching MLB stadiums welcome back fans, is a good indicator for us all that measures are working and we can see the end of this challenging time soon. With these hockey jerseys, we can help celebrate that with the Royals, Grizzlies and Clippers in particular.”

The jerseys are available in limited quantities and available on the team websites, shop sections (see detailed links below).

Both the HarbourCats and NightOwls are scheduled to begin their 2021 West Coast League season on June 1, playing a Canada only schedule against league rivals and newcomers the Edmonton Riverhawks and Kamloops NorthPaws.  The detailed schedule is yet to be announced.

Details and updates on both teams will be available at their respective websites at www.harbourcats.com and www.nanamionightowls.com.
