KELOWNA – The end result of the 2015 CHL Memorial Cup may not have been exactly what they were hoping for but fans of the Kelowna Rockets are sure to be on hand this afternoon to welcome home the second best team in the league.

The Rockets lost 2-1 in overtime Sunday, May 31, despite outshooting the Oshawa Generals 38-26.
