Former Laker D-man Derek A Smith has been named head coach of the Wellington Dukes of the OJHL.
The podcast of the Laker Hockey Talk show has been posted.
A couple of things of note. Melvin Karlsson is not returning to the Lakers; he's going back to Sweden. No mention of filling behind him for this coming season. The Lakers have a new volunteer assistant coach, Mike Gugin.
Damon didn't have much to say about the realignment. He did say he thought more information would be coming out fairly soon.
Damon failed to mention that 24 of his 66 (36%) career wins have come against Huntsville, Fairbanks and Anchorage.
Lakers would have had a pretty average 16-12 record without those 3 teams in the league last year.
Of the 23 wins last year, to many where against bad teams or teams that had a down year for me to truly believe this thing is heading in the right direction.
Anyone know how Owen Headrick is doing these days and where he will play this coming season?
I know of last season he was playing out east in one of the Canadian Universities . A woman that cuts my hair ,her son was his room mate on the hockey team . But I cannot remember if it was in Newfoundland or Nova Scotia .
Sounds like Owen has had struggles since he left the Lakers.
It sounds like we won't know until September whether the Alaska teams will play this coming season or not. The Lakers only six games in January (excluding the U.S U18 exhibition game) are against the Alaska schools. If they both fold, I don't know how the league officials
reshuffle the schedule so the Lakers don't go without playing a single league game in January.

It looks like Lakers D-man recruit Brendan Hill will be playing for the Prince George Spruce Kings of the BCHL this coming season. He has a 2001 birth date and played for Detroit Catholic Central last season.
Is Steve Ruggerio coming back this season ? On College Hockey news , they have him on the new roster .
