The Vancouver Rangers have announced new ownership. The team will be owned by a group called Vancouver Sports Management LLC. The group will consist of four people, Head Coach Dave Daniello, Parker Cowand, Jerry Adamowicz, and Jon Neill. Former owners Greg and Spencer Jamison will stay on as consultants. Head coach Dave Daniello will retain his roles as General Manager and Head Coach. The Vancouver Rangers debuted in the 2015-2016 season and made the Thorne Cup Playoffs after finishing with a record of 30-18-0-4, they were eliminated by the Whitefish Wolverines in the first round. This ownership group brings together people with accomplished and diverse backgrounds. Career development, player recruiting, financial controls, business operations, community support, affiliated team activities, breadth and depth of union hockey in Vancouver, and sponsorships will increase greatly with this new ownership. The Rangers will be an essential part of the community and be involved in many activities to raise awareness of programs that brings Vancouver together. Hopes are high for the Rangers for even greater success in the 2016-2017 season.
