The Kamloops Blazers have just created a battle for the #1 goaltending spot with the acquisition of over-age 'tender Jeff Bosch from the Moose Jaw Warriors.
The Warriors get a 6th round pick in 2012 in return.
This is the third team for Bosch in his WHL career. He was traded to the Warriors from the Regina Pats after a goaltending glut in the Queen City two years ago.
This takes care of one of two open 20 year-old spots for the Blazers. It also creates a good battle between Bosch and Jon Groenheyde for the #1 spot.
The over-age goaltender musical chairs started when the Prince George Cougars acquired Morgan Clark from Swift Current before training camp began.
There's an abundant of 20 year-old goaltenders out there that could be on the move. We've just seen Thomas Heemskerk traded to Moose Jaw today from Everett.
Brandon has two in Andrew Hayes and Jacob De Serres. Kootenay has Todd Mathews. Two more in Red Deer in Barnstable and Keumper. There's Steven Stanford in Saskatoon.
Chilliwack has Lucas Gore and Portland maymove Ian Curtis with Mac Carruth looking to be the #1 guy.
Likely Spokane will go with James Reid and Swift Current is set with Mark Friesen. Tri City likely has a good battle going between Drew Owsley and over-age Alex Pechurskiy.
These moves today are just the first of many in the next month leading up to the 20 year-old deadline.
