The Kelowna Rockets focused on their youth in the 2020-21 WHL season. Strong showings last season by the likes of forwards Trevor Wong and Andrew Cristall bode well for the future, and the re-insertion of Czech forward and Minnesota Wild prospect Pavel Novak into the Kelowna lineup bodes well for the Rockets’ goal of returning to the post-season in the spring of 2022.
