Special to Vegas Hockey
Daryl Jenner, a coach who was at the Okanagan Hockey Academy in Penticton, has passed. Years ago coach Jenner recruited and signed Las Vegas goal scorer Ryan Townsend to play in Penticton. Townsend, 30, is now an elite hockey official who works in the big hockey games in Las Vegas.
Hockey mom Karla Townsend of Las Vegas said “coach Jenner recruited our son Ryan to play in Penticton. He was a fun coach who brought all of that to the rink every single day. He wrote the book ‘Game Winning Goals’ which is a classic. He will be very missed by all in the sport of hockey.”
