A former member of the West Kelowna Warriors died from an “apparent overdose,” according to the New York Police Department.

Parm Dhaliwal, 23, was found dead at the Hyatt Grand Hotel in New York, July 30. The New York Police Department determined he was found deceased from an apparent overdose, said detective Francis Sammon.

The West Kelowna Warriors Junior ‘A’ Hockey Club is honouring Dhaliwal, Saturday, Oct. 1, at 7 p.m. when the Warriors host the Penticton Vees.

Dhaliwal played three seasons for the Warriors from 2016 to 2019. In his three seasons, he scored 38 goals and had 82 assists in 148 games.

“He was considered one of the all-time greats for the Warriors both on and off the ice. The game will take place on the home opener weekend which has games on both Friday and Saturday night. Saturday’s game will feature a pregame ceremony with Parm’s family on the ice followed by a game versus the rival Penticton Vees,” according to a press release from the Warriors.

A celebration of life was held in Surrey, where he was from, a few weeks ago.
