Geerin AP's With Penticton:

D Jimmy Geerin (89), who the Cents acquired two weeks ago with F Scott Jacklin (90) from Cowichan Valley in the deal that saw D Curtis Gedig (91) go to the Capitals, has been added to the Penticton Vees roster as an affiliate player.

Geerin was suspended and subsequently released by the Centennials earlier this week and is free to sign with any team in the CJHL that has an open card, although since Penticton used their last card on F Max Grassi (88), it appears that Fred Harbinson is content to AP Geerin for the ten games he can play this season and then either sign him after the season is over or let him tryout for the Vees in camp.

It's disappointing that Geerin didn't want to report to Merritt as now the Centennials don't have anything to show for trading Gedig at this point. There are futures coming from Trail in the trade that sent Jacklin to the Smokies and those (whether cash or a player to be named later) will ultimately be what the Centennials get for moving Gedig to Cowichan.
