It's expected the WHL will rule on a suspension for Blazers F Jordan DePape at some point today. His hit Friday night on Killian Hutt of the Swift Current Broncos is under review at the WHL Head Office. DePape didn't play Saturday night in Spokane.
To make matters worse, Blazer captain Chase Schaber is also facing suspension following a game misconduct Saturday night in Spokane for an "inappropriate gesture". It's also his 2nd game misconduct this season. That usually goes with an automatic one-game suspension...
We will wait and see.... I'll blog the info when I get it.
The Blazers have again recalled F Aspen Sterzer. The 16 year-old was called up earlier this season after the "Portland Punch-up" where several Blazers faced suspensions.
Sterzer will join the team on the three game road swing to close off the first half.
The Blazers have signed 2010 2nd round bantam pick Cole Ully to a WHL players contract.
Ully, who reigns from Calgary, was selected by the Blazers 30th overall in the draft. The high scoring forward is leading the Midget AAA Calgary Flames in scoring with 11 goals and 8 assists for 19 points in 20 games this season.
“We are very happy that Cole and his family have committed to the Kamloops Blazers and to play in the WHL,” General Manager Craig Bonner said. “Cole is a very talented and hard-working player. He will be a terrific fit for our team in the future. We now have signed our top four picks from the 2010 Bantam Draft.”
