The WHL's Husky Player of the Month should be announced later this morning. Chalk my vote up for Broncos F Cody Eakin. He was over-looked last week for the Boston Pizza Player of the Week.
Eakin had a huge October which included a league best 13 goals, an invite for Team WHL and an NHL contract in his hands from the Washington Capitals. How can you argue with those accomplishments?
Broncos F Matt Tassone began practicing with the Broncos over the weekend but it could still be awhile until he returns to game action.
Broncos Head Coach/GM Mark Lamb spoke about the situation in last night's pre-game show.
"It's still up in the air right now. When you look at him in practice you think he can play right away. There's nothing there that shows that he can't. He will probably still be a month away. The doctors have to clear him and we're not going to push him. We would rather have him on the team after Christmas and going down the stretch and into playoffs."
Personally, just having Matt around the team and back with the guys gives them a boost.
We could have another update later.... we will see how the day unfolds....
