Defenseman Stewart Coyle Traded by Salmon Arm and Penticton, Ends Up with Kindersley Klippers:



Defenseman Stewart Coyle was traded twice in a period of 24 hours after being moved by the Salmon Arm SilverBacks to the Penticton Vees for future considerations and then, along with future considerations, by Vees Head Coach and GM Fred Harbinson to the Kindersley Klippers of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League for futures.

Taylor Rocca over at the SJ Journal reports that Klippers GM and Head Coach Rockie Zinger Salmon Arm originally had a deal with Kindersley, but Coyle didn't clear BCHL waivers after the Vees put a claim in and matched the deal.

Then Coyle decided to not report to Penticton after being set on going to the Klippers so Zinger worked out a deal with the Vees.

So essentially, Salmon Arm and Penticton wind up with future considerations while Kindersley gets the player it wanted in the first place and future considerations.

Here's the release from the 'Backs portion of the trade:

The Salmon Arm SilverBacks announced on Thursday that 18 year old Defenceman Stewart Coyle has been traded to the Penticton Vees, in exchange for Future Considerations.

Coyle, a native of Sicamous, joined the 'Backs early in the season after stints with the WHL's Vancouver Giants and Spokane Chiefs, last season.

Stewart amassed 11 Penalty Minutes and 0 points in his 9 games with the SilverBacks on the blue-line.

The 'Backs would like to thank Stewart for his contributions to the team, and its dressing room, while wishing him the best of luck in his future endeavours.

Your SilverBacks host those same Penticton Vees this Saturday, at the Shaw Centre, before taking on the Merritt Centennials on Sunday Afternoon, also at the Shaw Centre.

For more information pertaining to this press release please contact Troy Mick at the SilverBacks Hockey Operations office at 250-832-3856, Ext 106

Surrey Clears Logjam in Goal By Trading Victor Adamo to St. Michael's Buzzers:


The Surrey Eagles picked up goaltender Devon Fordyce (94) two weeks ago from the AJHL's Brooks Bandits to bolster the position.

However, with Bo Didur (97) and Victor Adamo (93) also on the roster, it was inevitable that something had to give for Head Coach and GM Peter Schaefer.

Yesterday, Schaefer made the move to send Adamo back to the Ontario Junior Hockey League, trading the Toronto native to the St. Michael's Buzzers for future considerations, leaving Fordyce and Didur as the guardians of the Eagles net.

West Kelowna Brings Back Reid Simmonds in Trade With Okotoks:


A familiar face is back with the West Kelowna Warriors after Head Coach and GM Rylan Ferster swung a trade to acquire forward Reid Simmonds (93) from the Okotoks Oilers of the Alberta Junior Hockey League for future considerations.

Simmonds was traded by the Warriors back in June to the Fort McMurray Oil Barons for defenseman Taylor Graham. Fort Mac then moved the Calgary native to Okotoks before the 2013-14 season started. 

Now, after 106 games in West Kelowna over two seasons, Simmonds is back playing at Royal LePage Place.

To West Kelowna Warriors:
F Reid Simmonds (93) To Okotoks Oilers:
Future Considerations

There's no release on either team's website regarding the trade, but West-K play-by-play man Jon Zacks posted this on his blog yesterday:

We’ll start with a trade that brings Reid Simmonds back to Warriors Country.  The Calgary product spent his first two seasons of junior with the Tribe before a deal that sent him to the AJHL this summer (for Taylor Graham).  Simmonds has now been acquired from Okotoks for future considerations and he’s on his way back to the Okanagan as I write this.

Those who have followed this team over the past couple of seasons will know how valuable Simmonds can be.  The now 20 year-old is a terrific competitor who plays the game, as Coach Ferster always puts it, ‘the right way.’  

He doesn’t score a ton of goals, but does have a knack for scoring big ones (like the game 4 OT winner vs. Pen last year).  ‘Simmer’ is a pro, who works hard every day and wears a smile in the community as well.  I’m guessing he’ll draw onto the line with with Matt Anholt and Tyson Dallman, giving West K a shut-down unit that will be simply awful to play against.

Victoria Trades Junior A Rights to Defenseman Nick Charif to Spruce Grove:


Last week, the Victoria Grizzlies traded a player who was on their roster, but wasn't with the team.

Victoria head coach and GM Bill Bestwick moved the junior A rights to defenseman Nick Charif (95) to the Spruce Grove Saints of the Alberta Junior Hockey League for future considerations.

Charif was listed by the WHL's Red Deer Rebels and left the Grizzlies after realizing he wasn't eligible for a full five year scholarship at an NCAA school due to the fact that he took some courses he took last winter at MacEwan University in Edmonton.

He signed with the Rebels and joined them full-time two weeks ago, and Victoria decided to get something for his junior A rights.

Trail Trades Defenseman Braeden Jones to Portage Terriers:



The (short-lived) mystery of what happened to defenseman Braeden Jones (94) is solved as the Trail Smoke Eaters announced today that they've traded him to the MJHL's Portage Terriers for future considerations.

Jones was traded to make room for defenseman Cody Bardock, who the Smokies picked up from Sherwood Park on Thursday.

To Portage Terriers:
D Braeden Jones (94) To Trail Smoke Eaters:
Future Considerations

Here's Trail's release on the deal:

The Trail Smoke Eaters have completed a trade with the Manitoba Junior Hockey League’s Portage Terriers, sending 19 year-old defenseman Braeden Jones east for future considerations.

Jones, from Edmonton, Alberta, scored 3 goals and 9 points in 44 appearances with the Smoke Eaters during the 2012-13 and 2013-14 seasons, adding 78 minutes in penalties. The 6’2” blueliner was recruited in the spring of 2012 from the Knights of Columbus midget AAA program.

Jones will join former Smoke Eater defenseman Matt Alexander with Portage. The Terriers will host the 2015 RBC Cup.

The Smoke Eaters would like to thank Braeden for his contributions on and off the ice in our community, and wish him the very best with the Terriers.

Trail Acquires Defenseman Cody Bardock from Sherwood Park:


The Trail Smoke Eaters made their first trade since firing GM and Head Coach Bill Birks on Wednesday, shoring up their defense by trading for defenseman Cody Bardock (93) from the AJHL's Sherwood Park Crusaders for future considerations.

To make room for Bardock, defenseman Braeden Jones (94) is no longer on the Smoke Eaters roster after one assist in 13 games and I'm investigating to find out if he was traded or released.

To Trail Smoke Eaters:
D Cody Bardock (93) To Sherwood Park Crusaders:
Future Considerations

Here's the release from the Smoke Eaters:

The Trail Smoke Eaters have completed a trade with the Alberta Junior Hockey League’s Sherwood Park Crusaders, adding 20 year-old Cody Bardock to the team’s blueline.

Smoke Eaters have acquired the 6’5” defenseman for future considerations.

Bardock, from Lethbridge, Alberta, scored 1 goal and 7 points in twelve games with the Crusaders this season, adding 22 penalty minutes. In 82 career Junior “A” games with Prince George, Brooks, and Sherwood Park, Bardock has put up 5 goals and 25 points, amassing 63 minutes in penalties.

The acquisition of Bardock means the Smoke Eaters now have the full complement of overage players (6) allowed under BC Hockey League regulations.

The Smoke Eaters would like to welcome Cody to Trail, and back to the BCHL.

27 BCHL Players Featured on Canada West Selection Camp Roster:


It's another feather in the cap of the BC Hockey League as it has the most players featured on the Canada West selection camp roster, which was announced yesterday.

Powell River leads the way with six players on the roster (Imoo, Burns, Leclerc, Ripley, Keats, Lukosevicius) while Penticton (Beauvais, Coulombe, Stoykewych), West Kelowna (Plant, Lloyd, Pope), Victoria (Dillon, McGuire, Meek) and Vernon (Blacklock, Wilson, Hannoun) are next with three each.

Merritt (Birks, Wight) has two players invited and Surrey (Dawson), Langley (Dombrovskiy), Prince George (Jenks), Cowichan (Cooper), Salmon Arm (Gillies), Coquitlam (Rockwood) and Nanaimo (Taylor) each feature one invitee on their rosters.

Trail, Alberni Valley, and Chilliwack are the lone BCHL teams to have a player invited to the camp.

Here's the official release from Hockey Canada:

Hockey Canada, in partnership with the Canadian Junior Hockey League, announced Friday the 66 players that will attend the Canada West selection camp in preparation for the 2013 World Junior A Challenge.

The selection camp, scheduled for Oct. 26-30, will be held at the Markin MacPhail Centre at Canada Olympic Park in Calgary. The 66 players will be divided into four teams – Black, Gold, Red and White – and will play six intrasquad games, in addition to daily practices.

Players named to the Canada West selection camp roster were selected from the CJHL’s five western Junior A leagues: the British Columbia Hockey League (BCHL), Alberta Junior Hockey League (AJHL), Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League (SJHL), Manitoba Junior Hockey League (MJHL) and Superior International Junior Hockey League (SIJHL).

The selection camp roster was chosen by Canada West head coach Jason McKee (Spruce Grove, AJHL), along with assistant coaches Trent Cassan (Yorkton, SJHL) and Ryan Smith (Selkirk, MJHL), and team manager Shawn Bullock (Hockey Canada).

“There is tremendous talent in Canada’s five western Junior A leagues, and it was a challenge to select only 66 to invite,” McKee said. “We’re excited for the potential of this group, and we can’t wait to get on the ice in Calgary and choose the 22 who will wear the red and white in Yarmouth.”

“As you can see by this list, there are a lot of excellent players in the five Western Junior A leagues,” said Kirk Lamb, president of the CJHL. “Canada West has experienced a tremendous level of success in the past, and competition for a position on a team that has a great chance to compete for gold in Yarmouth will be intense.”

The Canada West selection camp roster includes:
  • six goaltenders, 24 defencemen and 36 forwards;
  • 27 players from the BCHL, 23 players from the AJHL, seven players from the SJHL, six players from the MJHL, and three players from the SIJHL;
  • seven players returning from the 2012 World Junior A Challenge (Imoo, Keats, Lloyd, Reeve, Ripley, Skip, Stoykewych);
  • two players selected at the 2013 NHL Entry Draft (Pope – Detroit, 4th round, 109th overall; Birks – Pittsburgh, 6th round, 164th overall).
The 2013 World Junior A Challenge will be held Nov. 4-10 at the Mariners Centre in Yarmouth, N.S. Canada West will play in Group B, joined by the Czech Republic and Switzerland, while Canada East, Russia and the United States will comprise Group A.

Preliminary round play will run until Wednesday, Nov. 6, with both semifinals taking place Friday, Nov. 8. The gold medal game, which will be shown nationally on TSN/RDS, the official broadcasters of Hockey Canada, is set for Sunday, Nov. 10 (check your local listings). All preliminary round games, quarter-finals, semifinals and the bronze medal game can be seen live via webcast through FASTHockey at hockeycanada.fasthockey.com.

Fans can now purchase a three-game ticket package that includes both of Canada East’s preliminary round games, against Russia on Nov. 4 and the U.S. on Nov. 6, as well as the gold medal game on Nov. 10, for $99 (plus applicable fees).

It settled for silver in 2008 in Camrose, Alta., 2009 in Summerside, P.E.I., and last year, and finished fourth in 2010 in Penticton, B.C.

Surrey Eagles Acquire Garrett Forster From Flin Flon Bombers For Joel Gaudet & Futures:


The saga of forward Garrett Forster (95) reached (what seems to be) a conclusion as the Surrey Eagles acquired the Delta native from the SJHL's Flin Flon Bombers in exchange for forward Joel Gaudet (94) and future considerations.

I say it's been a saga for Forster because his junior A rights were traded for the fourth time in the last six weeks. It started on September 4th when Coquitlam traded Forster along with goaltender Daniel Urbani and defenseman Bryce Eviston to the AJHL's Brooks Bandits for netminder Gordie Defiel.

After seven games with Brooks, the Bandits moved Forster and Eviston to the Dieppe Commandos of the Maritime Junior A Hockey League for future considerations on October 5th. That same day, Dieppe flipped Forster, Eviston and future considerations to Flin Flon for forward Justin Rasmussen.

Forster never played for the Bombers and I can only presume he returned home as he showed up on the roster of the junior B Aldergrove Kodiaks this past weekend. He played one game for the PJHL club, registering one assist before his junior A rights were picked up by Surrey today and he played tonight, wearing number 96, against his former team in Coquitlam.

To Surrey Eagles:
F Garrett Forster (95) To Flin Flon Bombers:
F Joel Gaudet (94) + Future Considerations

There's no mention of the trade on either team's website, but it is posted under BCHL Transactions on the league website.

Coquitlam Express Trade Cal Hofford to Cornwall Colts, Add Former WHL Defenseman Zach Hodder:


The Coquitlam Express added former Moose Jaw Warriors defenseman Zach Hodder (93) to their roster prior to tonight's game against Surrey, which meant Barry Wolff's club was one over the roster limit allowed in the BCHL.

As a result, Wolff brokered a trade with the Cornwall Colts of the Central Canada Hockey League, sending blueliner Cal Hofford (94) east in exchange for future considerations.

For Hofford, it's a chance to play closer to home as it's just over four hours between Cornwall and his hometown of Woodbridge.

Hodder was a member of the Express during the 2011-12 season, posting 33 points in 43 games before resuming his WHL career during the 2012-13 season and the start of this season before Moose Jaw released him last week.

To Cornwall Colts:
D Cal Hofford (94) To Coquitlam Express:
Future Considerations

Nothing from the Express on their website, by play-by-play man Eddie Gregory posted this on his Coquitlam Expressions blog:

The Coquitlam Express got a boost to the blueline by bringing back a familiar face Wednesday.

They have re-acquired defenceman Zach Hodder from the Moose Jaw Warriors of the WHL.

The 20 year old Delta native played 43 games with the Express during the 2011-12 season. In those 43 games, Hodder was very productive piling up 12 goals and added 21 assists for 31 points.

The 12 goals he scored that season is the second highest total in a season by an Express defenceman.

He returned to the WHL last season where he split the season with Prince Albert Raiders and Medicine Hat Tigers. In 60 games he had 3 goals and 13 assists for 16 points.

This season he played 6 games with the Moose Jaw Warriors and had picked up 1 assist. He has 128 career WHL games with Vancouver, Saskatoon, Price Albert, Medicine Hat and Moose Jaw registering 8 goals and 30 assists for 38 points.

Hodder will make his Express re-debut tonight vs. the Surrey Eagles and will wear #2.

2014 Great Northwest Showcase Announced:




This is HUGE... I'm pumped for this year's edition of the Great Northwest Showcase. 


Organizers announced this morning the four participants for the tournament January 3 - 4, 2014 at the Bill Copeland Sports Centre - SFU, UBC, University of North Dakota and Princeton University.

There's a distinct BCHL flavour to the Showcase and I'll post the breakdown of alumni on each team at a later date, but for now, having two NCAA Div. I schools come and compete against a BCIHL team and a CIS team is very exciting for the collegiate level of hockey here in BC.

Here's the official release:

The Simon Fraser University Men’s Hockey team is pleased to announce that the 2014 Great Northwest Showcase will take place on January 3rd and 4th, 2014, and will feature the University of North Dakota (NCAA Division I), the Princeton University Tigers (NCAA Division I), Simon Fraser University Men’s Hockey (BCIHL), and the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds (CIS). This year’s event is sponsored by Tourism Burnaby as well as the Hilton Vancouver Metrotown Hotel.

The Great Northwest Showcase began in 2012 as a four game exhibition showcasing top level international University Men’s Hockey while promoting the importance of education during an athlete’s career. This year’s event will continue in the tradition of the GNS while building on the success of the inaugural event. The GNS not only provides a valuable competitive experience for the student-athletes involved, but also world-class entertainment and competition for sports fans of all ages who attend.

The four games of this year’s GNS are: SFU vs Princeton, UBC vs UND, UBC vs Princeton, and SFU vs UND. The games are scheduled to take place at the Bill Copeland Sports Centre in Burnaby, BC, home of the SFU Men’s Hockey team.

“We appreciate the invitation and are proud to be a part of this tournament,” says UND Head Coach Dave Hakstol. “It is a great opportunity to spread the footprint of NCAA Division I hockey and, at the same time, allows many of our players from Western Canada to return home for two exhibition games.”

“The UBC Hockey team is excited to attend this year’s Great Northwest Showcase, it will be a great opportunity for the fans to see different levels of college hockey and two top NCAA programs.” says UBC Head Coach Milan Dragicevic. “Our players will be thrilled to play against top NCAA competition and raise the level of awareness of CIS hockey in the Lower Mainland.”

Evolution 107.9 FM to Broadcast SFU Men's Hockey Home Games:


I'm beyond excited to post this piece of news as the radio station that serves as a major part of the BCIT Radio Arts & Entertainment Program, which I work within, is the new radio voice of the SFU Clan Men's Hockey Team.

Although I also do the broadcasts for SFU Hockey, mine are part of the pay-per-view audio and video on FastHockey.com. Our students' broadcast will be the only one available on terrestrial radio in Metro Vancouver.

Here's the joint media release from Evolution 107.9 FM and SFU Clan Men's Hockey:

BCIT’s Evolution 107.9 FM, broadcasting from the Burnaby Campus, and the Simon Fraser University Clan Men’s Hockey Team have announced a one-year broadcast agreement for the 2013-14 BC Intercollegiate Hockey League season.

Heard locally in Burnaby and Metro Vancouver, Evolution 107.9 FM will carry all 12 regular season home games for the Clan this season. All games will also be streamed online and available internationally via www.evolution1079.com and iTunes radio. Fans can also listen via mobile device with the free Evolution 107.9 app for Android and iPhone.

As part of the agreement, Evolution 107.9 FM will also have SFU men’s hockey players, coaches, and staff on the air for weekly features and interviews.

While play-by-play announcing, colour commentary, and broadcast hosting for each game will predominantly be covered by second-year students in BCIT’s Radio Arts and Entertainment program, the opportunity is also available to first-year students as well.

“We’re thrilled about the opportunity for our BCIT Radio Arts and Entertainment students to gain valuable experience broadcasting SFU Clan hockey games,” said Evolution 107.9 Operations Manager Brian Wiebe. “Being involved in the Burnaby community is a core value that both the SFU Men’s Hockey Team and Evolution 107.9 share and we hope this agreement helps to continue the good relationship that already exists between the two schools.”

“Both BCIT and SFU are part of a long and proud history for the City of Burnaby,” he continued. “Our Radio Arts and Entertainment Program students collaborating with Head Coach Mark Coletta and the Clan Men’s Hockey Team hopefully continues that tradition for many years to come.”

“Providing an opportunity for local students to gain experience that will help them in their professional careers is one of the goals of our program,” says SFU Director of Hockey Operations Chris Munshaw. “This is something we have worked towards with many SFU and BCIT students individually over the years, and we feel that this year we have a new exciting opportunity to further that commitment by involving the BCIT programs directly.”

Evolution 107.9 FM signed on in March of 2006 and is the campus radio station at BCIT. The radio format is adult album alternative and consists mostly of independent, rock, and adult alternative. The station is staffed entirely by second-year students in BCIT’s Radio Arts & Entertainment and Broadcast & Online Journalism Programs.

SFU Men’s Hockey was re-established in 2004 and provides an opportunity for Junior hockey players to further their hockey careers while pursuing a post-secondary education. The program aims to raise the profile of collegiate hockey in BC while supporting and giving back to the local community.

27 BCHL Alumni on NHL Opening Night Rosters:


The National Hockey League published each team's opening day roster on its website yesterday and there are 27 former BCHL players featured.

There have already been some adjustments to these rosters (like Pittsburgh called up former Penticton forward Beau Bennett from the minors), but because they were official for opening day yesterday, it's what I'm going with for the purposes of this post.

In all, 21 of the NHL's 30 teams have a former BCHLer on their roster. With three, the Vancouver Canucks, Ottawa Senators, and Dallas Stars have the most former BCHLers on their rosters.
