A lot. And a lot that are still actively playing as well.

This will help a little. https://www.castanet.net/news/Kelowna/1 ... -in-Valley

Like Soupy says there are many. Not only just in Kelowna but valleywide. Duncan Keith (Chicago Blackhawks) has a summer home on the Naramata Bench.

There are also quite a few players up in Vernon.

Good luck with your search.

Agree with soupy, there are a lot of retired & current players that have homes in the Kelowna area.
Of course they are not about to advertise there locations anytime soon. Hang around few of the gyms in the area, you we see them sooner or later.
When you have to start compromising yourself and your morals for the people around you, it’s probably time to change the people around you.

If they played for the Rockets, there's a good chance they spend summers here, even if they don't own property.

Off the top of my head, ones I know live here or at least own property here:

Luke Schenn
Wade Redden
Brent Gilchrist
Byron Dafoe
Jarome Iginla
Jordin Tootoo
Byron Ritchie

As soupy said, it's not something that really gets publicized.
My fervent hope is that you and your tax dollars will be reunited in the afterlife.

It's funny, there have been several threads whose sole purpose was to bash Kelowna and then this one pops up. Imagine, people who could live pretty much anywhere in the world and many have chosen Kelowna as their "home".

It says a lot about what those of us who truly appreciate the region believe; Kelowna is a pretty amazing place to live.

True but these guys have money to burn. Most of the complainers don't.
I know the voices aren't real but they sure do come up with some good ideas!

Hang around Area 27 in the summer. Many there with their go-fast cars.
