The Wenatchee Wild, proud Interior Conference members of the British Columbia Hockey

League (BCHL), are pleased to make this major announcement:

Effective immediately, the State of Arizona has been approved by the BCHL as a “Territory” for

the Wild. This means players from Arizona are now considered to be “Territory Players”, and

not “American Import” players. “Territory Players” of any age are eligible to play in Wenatchee,

including high school age.

As the only US-based team in the BCHL, the Wild must build their roster with a minimum of

fifteen (15) players from it’s “Territories”, which now are as follows: California, Colorado,

Washington, and Arizona.

To round out the remaining eight (8) roster spots, the Wild are permitted to have four (4)

“American Import” players from any state in the country, after their Senior year in high school,

as well as four (4) Canadian players, also after their Senior year in high school.

Head Coach and General Manager Bliss Littler commented, “This is a great step forward for the

Wild, having another territory with a more geographic connection to the West only helps us

improve our brand, and provide more opportunities for players to reach the NCAA. Arizona is a

state that continually produces talented players, and we are excited for the potential to have

them in a Wild uniform in the future.” Littler also continued, “We would like to thank BCHL

Commissioner John Grisdale and the BCHL Board of Governors for the approval of our request.”
