Cents head coach and GM Luke Pierce mentioned during the pre-game show on Q101 that forward Andrew Pickering (89) is a healthy scratch for tonight's game in Trail against the Smoke Eaters as a precautionary measure ahead of tomorrow's trade deadline. Scott Morisseau is playing his second game for Merritt since being added as an affiliate player a couple of weeks ago. He's taking Pickering's spot in the line-up.
Interesting that Pickering is a scratch while other 1989-born Cents players like Jordan Soquila, Ryne Bodger and Alex Valenti are all in the lineup. Stay tuned to the blog for all the latest moves by the Centennials and around the BCHL.
