Broncos trim roster, host the Ice tonight

The Broncos have re-assigned 17 year-old forward Kyle Ireland following practice Thursday afternoon. Tough to keep the kid around when he's only appeared in five games this season. He saw limited action collecting one assist - oddly enough on his first ever WHL shift.

Good Rosetown kid, hope to see him back at some point this season but has to work on some obvious things, skating being number one. He has some skill . . . anyone who's been down to practice would see his shifty moves in the breakaway contest. He also sat directly behind me on the Broncos bus and was always entertaining to talk to. Good luck Isey.

Broncos host the Ice tonight . . . will they ever beat them? They've lost 11 straight games against them dating all the way back to November 2002, yikes!. We may catch them tired, this will be their 4th game in 5 nights in the midst of their East division swing. They will be without one of the league's best players in Ryan Russell who has a hand injury.

Look for a recap following the action . . . . later,
