The Penticton Lakers were a junior 'B' Ice Hockey team based in Penticton, British Columbia, Canada. They were members of the Okanagan Division of the Okanagan/Shuswap of the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League (KIJHL) and were part of the Okanagan Hockey Academy. They played their home games at the South Okanagan Events Centre. They were last coached by Robert Dirk.

The Lakers were relocated to 100 Mile House prior to the start of the 2013-14 KIJHL season due to arena difficulties and poor attendance, largely to blame on superior competition from the Junior A Penticton Vees, and were renamed as the 100 Mile House Wranglers.
