Cents Intrasquad Game, Recent Moves:

My coaching debut wasn't much of a success as Team Merritt News (Team Black) blanked Team Q101 (Team White) 5-0 in the Cents annual intrasquad game last night. There was a GREAT crowd at the game, the amount of interest in the Centennials this season is as high as I've seen it in my eight years in Merritt.

After the game, the Cents trimmed their training camp roster by nine more players: Forwards Daylan Robertson, Brad Robinson, Ben Reinbolt, Caleb Staniland and River Lafferty, defencemen Lucas Hildebrand and Brett DeFrias, and goaltenders Dusty Hyde and Dylan Quinn. The cuts leave 34 players still with the team, including veterans. Not included in that total are Jakob Reichert and Austin Baecker, as both left training camp to attend WHL camps with Chilliwack and Seattle respectively. Here's the summary from the Cents website:

Merritt, BC - August 27, 2010

The Merritt Centennials played their annual intrasquad game Friday night at the Nicola Valley Memorial Arena. 33 Cents hopefuls took to the ice that saw Team Black skate away with a 5-0 victory over Team White. The Centennials coaching staff now has the task of reducing the team's roster to no more than 23 players for the regular season opener on the road Friday September 10 in Trail.

Dustin Lebrun (92) and Eric Schmidt (93) each led Black with a goal and an assist. Jared Andersen (90), Cole Buckley (92), and Michael Hails (94) shared the shutout in goal for Team Black.
