Langley Township councillor Charlie Fox all but confirms the Western Hockey League team is on the move.
“The city has facilitated the move, we worked with them in whatever way shape or form we could to try and facilitate anything that they wanted.”
Fox says it would be a good economic boost for the Township.
“I think this will bring it up a notch in terms of the hockey element we offer in the community and I think it will be a great boost the whole South of the Fraser, Fraser Valley area.
The L-E-C is already home to the Langley Rivermen of the BC Hockey League and the Vancouver Stealth of the National Lacrosse League.
