- What would it be like to be the son of Len Barrie? Kelowna Rockets defenseman Tyson Barrie can answer that question. Your dad is a co-owner of the Tampa Bay Lightning and owns a huge development near Victoria. To say your dad is high profile would be an understatement. The question I want to know is would Len Barrie draft his son?
- And then their was one. Overage defenseman Tysen Dowzak is not only the remaining 20 year-old on the Rockets roster, but the final player from the 2004 WHL bantam draft.
- Colin Joe's departure leaves a significant hole in the Rockets dressing room. Joe was the team comic, and would often leave his teammates in stitches as he impersonated an Asian tour guide. Joe, who's dad is of Asian decent, loved to poke fun at himself and others. His outgoing personality will be missed.
- I haven't spoken to him, but I find it interesting that 17 year-old Stepan Novotny has decided to join the Rockets despite signing a letter of intent to play with the University of Denver in 2009. Novotny, who won't turn 18 officially until September, obviously see's the benefits of playing major junior and taking the fast track to the NHL.
- You shouldn't notice a language barrier when Novotny puts on a Rockets uniform. He's spent the last two seasons taking high school at Shattuck St. Mary's prep school in Minnesota, so his handle of the English language should be strong.
- Rockets veteran defenseman Tysen Dowzak and Novotny should have something in common. Dowzak also attended Shattuck St. Mary's.
- Below you will find a picture of Jared and Tyler Spurgeon. The brothers have not only won a WHL title and Memorial Cup, but both have now been drafted by an NHL team.
