I'm told by multiple sources that Ryan Aynsley, who signed with the Smoke Eaters as an AP last weekend, will suit up tonight when they host the Alberni Valley Bulldogs (7:30 PM, Cominco Arena). Aynsley last played in the BCHL in 2008-09 with the Merritt Centennials, scoring 13 points in 27 games. He currently leads the Rebels in scoring with 26 points in 12 games.
Former Rebel Ryan Renz is with the Bulldogs in what is shaping up to be his final year of junior hockey before heading to Northeastern University next year. However, he hasn't played since September 24th after suffering an injury. I haven't been able to wrangle up any details on when he might be back in action.
Bits & Bites: The Osoyoos Coyotes have bolstered their contingent of 16 year-olds by acquiring forward Carter Rigby from the WHL's Prince George Cougars. The Penticton native suited up for the 'Yotes in their 4-1 win at Princeton last night. The Kamloops Storm also bolstered their blueline by signing 20 year-old Kurt Torbohm. He spent the last three years in the WHL with Kamloops and Prince George. RJ Priesser, who left the Spokane Braves after being acquired from Fernie earlier this season, has landed with the NORPAC league's Puget Sound Tomahawks.
