KELOWNA – If you have followed the Kelowna Rockets through any of their long playoff runs during the last 17 years, you probably heard Regan Bartel make a few calls on the radio.
He's all pro, as much a part of the team as a Rockets jersey. He's also got a unique style for his home-team goal calls and now he's got his own special place on Reddit. Some anonymous redditor made the most of sincere flattery with this, er, imitation.
For his part, Bartel is having plenty of fun with this video making its rounds in hockey circles.
"I thought it was awesome," he has said on social media.
The best part? It appears the trickster, KamCamMan is a Kamloops Blazers fan (media?) getting creative in the age-old rivalry.
