Rare (and Bizarre): Victoria Salsa (BCHL, 1996-97)

Haven't seen too many of these programs on eBay. Don't really know anything about the British Columbia Hockey League, but I remembered the Victoria Salsa. One of the more unusual team names I've ever heard!


  
1996-97 Regular Season--Opponent Unknown






 

     The Victoria Salsa, now there's a strange nickname for a Canadian hockey team! The Salsa were part of the British Columbia Hockey League from 1994-2006. In 1996-97, the team was coached by Garry Davidson. The Salsa finished in sixth place in the Coastal Division, with a 24-35-1 record, just three points ahead of last place Langley. 
     I honestly don't know anything about this team, and aside from the standings, hockeydb.com does not have individual stats from that season. I recognized one player from the Salsa roster: Corey Laniuk, who played for the Flint Generals for four seasons.
     Don't think I paid too much for this program. Just thought it was a strange nickname and wanted to add it to my collection. Check out the logo...pretty pissed-off pepper!
