Chilliwack rejoins BCHL

Sale of Millionaires approved

Some of the B.C. Hockey League’s (BCHL) biggest rivalries will be rekindled next season, now that the league’s board of governors has approved the sale and relocation of the Quesnel Millionaires.

The Mills will play next season in Chilliwack and be called the Chiefs, while the team formerly known as the Chiefs – who have played out of Langley since 2006 – are now known as the Rivermen since being sold last month.

The move brings to four the number of Lower Mainland-based BCHL squads, with Chilliwack – which earlier this spring lost its Western Hockey League team to Victoria – joining the Surrey Eagles, Coquitlam Express and Langley Rivermen.

Former Langley Chiefs head coach Harvey Smyl will move back to Chilliwack and coach the new Chiefs squad.
