Centennials To Cease BCHL Operations For 2024-25 Season

March 31, 2024


After an in-depth analysis the Merritt Centennials Board of Directors have made the very difficult decision to cease operations at the end of this season and withdraw from the BCHL.

The Board members past and present have worked extremely hard to maintain 51 continuous years of operation in the BCHL but have finally conceded that continuing into the future is no longer viable.

We cannot adequately express the gratitude owed to our community, sponsors, business partners, billets, volunteers, fans, staff, current players and alumni. We have come to the end of our final regular season.

We are confident that the current players and staff can have a great run into the upcoming playoffs. To our community, we hope you will attend over the playoffs and we fill the barn in celebration and pride to the end of 51 hard fought years.

With the Utmost Respect,

Ken Carruthers


Merritt Centennials Hockey Club
