I chatted with Nelson Leafs coach Chris Shaw about his two new players yesterday. The Leafs acquired forwards Brennan Foreman and Joel Stewart from Kimberley and Spokane, respectively. To hear the interview, click here.
Dixon Moves Up: Trail (BCHL) has snagged 16 year-old defenceman Ryan Dixon from the Beaver Valley Nitehawks. Dixon, a Trail native, had 7 points (1-6) in 23 games with the 'Hawks this season.
Goalie Swap: Kimberley and Revelstoke have exchanged goaltenders. The Dynamiters sent 20 year-old Tory Caldwell to the Grizzlies in exchange for 18 year-old Cole Buckley. Caldwell had requested a trade along with the aforementioned Foreman and Kristian Petit, who at the time of writing remains on Kimberley's reserve roster. In Buckley, Kimberley receives the current KIJHL wins leader. He had a record of 14-2 with Revelstoke posting a 2.58 GAA.
