The club stated in Saskatchewan, where it dwelled in a couple of towns before finally relocating to British Columbia in the 1970s. Their initial home in BC was the city of Westminster and the team was known as The New West Bruins. However a few years later, the club found new and permanent home in the town of Kamloops. In 1981, Kamloops Junior Oilers were unveiled to the hockey nation, but by 1984 the team found their name changed to Kamloops Blazers, after a change in ownership. However the best phase in the history of the club was yet to come; in 2007 the club was bought by Tom Gaglardi’s private investment group. The cool thing about the new owners was that at least four of the partners were Blazers alumni. These included Mark Recchi, Jarome Iginla, Shane Doan and Darryl Sydor. Since the owners had a personal connection to the club and the community, they have taken many steps that have had tremendous results for the club in particular and the sports related community of the area in general.
