Jamie Phillips traded from Powell River Kings (BCHL) to Toronto Jr. Canadiens (OJHL) (http://www.powellriverkings.com/leagues/newsletter.cfm?page=58263&clientID=3517&leagueID=9578)

I knew that the BCHL and AJHL did some trading between each other, but I didn't know they dealt with Jr. A leagues on the other side of the continent.

Wow that sucks...Hopefully he gets a ton of playing time for the Jr Canadiens and finds a spot on another BCHL team next season.

Jamie seems to think he's coming to Houghton next season (http://www.powellriverkings.com/leagues/newsletter.cfm?page=57988&clientID=3517&leagueID=9578).

Is the misspelled Arizona city supposed to be coming in next year too? If yes, then I'm guessing that the kid from Hibbing isn't going to be 3rd string next year.

As far as I know, Phillips is a 2013 recruit...Heisenberg has him as a 2012 right now too but who knows.

Yes, Copley will be here. Kind of a tough spot for Nate Tromp if both goalie recruits come in at the same time. He'll only have four years left on his clock, so I don't know why they wouldn't put him on the roster as the fourth goalie. He'd move up to third string after Genoe leaves, but it seems unlikely that Pearson would wait to bring in "the next" goalie until Copley, Phillips and Tromp are done. Perhaps Tromp gets a couple years on the roster and that's it.

Best idea they had for football was to close the cafeterias for breakfast/lunch that morning and force everyone up the hill if they wanted to eat.

That works for Saturday morning football, but probably not so much for Friday/Saturday night hockey.

80 KHAIRA, JUJHAR PRINCE GEORGE BCHL 6' 2.5" 182 LW

rated 80th among NA skaters. Petan's teamate Kerfoot rated 81st; would be a nice recruit to land as well.

Ben Johnson rated 49th.

...and not just because his dad's a billionaire. But apparently he's narrowed it down to Boston College, Harvard and Yale.

Kerfoot was known to be leaning "east" months ago, unfortunately.

I started listening to The Mel Pearson Show 15 mins late this morning. Also, on Tech Athletics facebook page they posted that due to technical difficulties this morning's show will not be archived and I assume wont be replayed this afternoon.

There is a really nice article on Colin Murphy's hockey career in Germany by his home town paper back in Fort McMurray and one on Pheonix Copley's chance to play some games back "home" in Fairbanks once the conference reshuffling happens and MTU and UA_ are in the same conference plus much more.

The idea of the GLI being played outdoors has found some support.

ESPN (http://espn.go.com/nhl/story/_/id/7459001/nhl-eyes-maple-leafs-red-wings-winter-classic-big-house-second-rink-detroit) mentions the idea of an outdoor GLI. Fail to mention Michigan Tech though...

it wasn't bad enough that nobody will credit Flashy Man with the whole idea - now they're dissing Michigan Tech right out of the conversation too. :(
