The Wheels on the Bus Go Round and Round....


Oh the smell of the bus!
For the first time this hockey season, the Rockets were on the iron lung headed off to Edmonton for this weekend's tournament.
Rockets Head Coach Ryan Huska told me Friday that Torrie Jung will start in goal Saturday against the expansion Edmonton Oil Kings. The Rockets technically have three goaltenders on the trip to Edmonton, the other two being veteran Kristofer Westblom and 16 year-old rookie Dylan Tait. Seventeen year-old Daniel Salamandyk didn't make the trip, as he is expected to join the BC Hockey League's Westside Warriors. Players reassigned by the team following training camp were defenseman Mandeep Nijjar and forward James Kerr.
AM 1150 News-Talk-Sports won't be doing any exhibition play-by-play games as David Michaud has refused to do them! Actually our contract with the team is for regular season games only, but we'll be on the air with game one of the regular season September 22nd.

Hey Regan, the new blog looks great. Let's hope the Rockets look as good this year if not better).

I understand your station will not be broadcasting the games, however do you know if other teams will be broadcasting their games? Specifically, if ay of the temas from this weekend's tourney?

Thanks.
