RANFORD RETURNS FROM PHILADELPHIA
Kamloops, BC – The Kamloops Blazers have welcomed 18-year-old forward Brendan Ranford back from the Philadelphia Flyers training camp.
Ranford was drafted by the Flyers in the 7th round in 2010 and joins JT Barnett, who was with the Minnesota Wild and Chase Schaber, who was with the Edmonton Oilers, as other players returned from NHL training camps.
There are still three Blazers at NHL training camps Josh Caron (Minnesota), Corey Fienhage (Buffalo), and Austin Madaisky. Madaisky is listed on Columbus’ roster tonight as the Blue Jackets host the Washington Capitals in NHL pre-season action.
It is expected that Caron and Madaisky will be returned to the Blazers on Thursday, in time for Friday’s home opener versus the Prince George Cougars and when the Blazers introduce their third jerseys on Saturday versus the Chilliwack Bruins.
