BIG MAC IS BACK:
Yesterday, Oct. 18, it was announced that Steve McCarthy was being returned to the Kootenay Ice after playing for the Chicago Blackhawks. He may play in the Ice’s road game this Wednesday in Lethbridge but this has yet to be determined. The fans can be assured that #7 will be back on the ice by this Friday night for the game against Prince Albert (in Cranbrook).
OVERAGE ABUNDANCE SOLVED:
On October 14 the Ice traded over-age defenseman Scott Roles along with future considerations to the Spokane Chiefs in exchange for 17 year old defenseman Cole Fischer (Dec. 23, 1981). This will be Fischer’s third year in the WHL. Fischer dressed for the Ice for the first time on Saturday, October 16th versus the Moose Jaw Warriors. He proved himself as being an experienced player as well as a physical presence on the ice when he took a player into the boards in the first few seconds of his Ice debut.
NO MORE INJURIES:
Forward Mike Green returned to the line-up in time for the October 16th game where he proved that he was healthy by notching 1 goal and 2 assists and earning the title of first star. Green suffered an ankle injury in the October 2nd game against the Saskatoon Blades.
