A new Kootenay Ice age has arrived in Cranbrook as owners Greg Fettes and Matt Cockell joined Cranbrook mayor Lee Pratt (middle) and members of the business community for a meet and greet at the Heritage Inn on Tuesday evening.

Announced at the end of March, the franchise ownership officially changed hands on May 1st, following approval from the WHL and the Board of Governors. Both Fettes and Cockell say they are excited for a fresh start in Cranbrook and are looking forward to engaging with fans and local businesses as they move into the offseason and towards the 2017/18 WHL campaign.
