I chatted with head coach Steve Junker on Mountain FM's Overtime last night. He gave me his take on the 5-2 win in Grand Forks as well as a brief look ahead to this weekend's games against Spokane and Fernie. If you missed it, click here to hear the full interview.
Alumni Update: Last year's captain, Gilbert Bilodeau, is skating with Grant MacEwan College in Edmonton. They play in the ACAC circuit, the equivalent of the loop Selkirk College plays in here in BC. Bilodeau is pointless through his first four games for Grant MacEwan, who sit 0-3-1 thus far. One of his teammates is Shannon Szabados, who played for Canada at the 2010 Winter Games and also was the first woman to suit up in a WHL game when she played for the Tri-City Americans.
Bits & Bites: Our two opponents this weekend, the Braves and Ghostriders, both have experienced turnover in goal this season. But their respective starting goaltenders, Jason Greenwell and Cash Ulrich from last season are now teammates at Eastern Washington University, who play in ACHA Div. II. Greenwell of course also suited up as a Brave during his time in the KIJHL, making him and Ulrich two of 7 former Braves currently on the roster. They played an exhibition game against my alma mater, SFU, on October 9th. The Clan won 9-3.
