Capitals announce new majority owner

Press Release

Offseason moves for the Cowichan Valley Capitals continue with the club now announcing a new majority owner.

Stew Gordon, who became a partial owner at the start of last season, has acquired a majority share of the club after his purchase agreement was approved by the BCHL.

Gordon, 50, is involved in the construction business as owner of Gordon N'gordon Interiors and is a Vancouver Island native having grown up in the Victoria suburb of Langford. He is also the owner of the Junior B Kerry Park Islanders of the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League.

Owning a Junior A club is something Gordon has had his eye on for a long time.

"I've been a minority owner (with the Capitals) for over a year and there was an opportunity for majority ownership," said Gordon. "I've been involved as a sponsor before (but) I've been wanting this for about five years."

Gordon is looking forward to helping the Caps, along with new coaching staff member Jim Ingram, qualify for the postseason once again and is excited to get involved with the local community.

"Of course (my goal), is to make the playoffs and push as many kids to the NCAA as possible," said Gordon. "Now we've got Jim Ingram on board and we've got good coaches.

"The people of Duncan are awesome; it's a great area."
