Heffley rejoins Rockets

Sixteen year-old Colton Heffley is rejoining the Kelowna Rockets.
A second round pick of the Rockets in the 2009 WHL bantam draft, Heffley attended training camp this year and played in a series of exhibition games.
Believing he would see little ice time, the Rockets sent him back to his hometown of Swift Current to play midget hockey this season.
Why the change of heart?
Well, earlier this week the coach and general manager of the midget Legionnaires resigned. It's believed Heffley then asked for his release.
Rather than play with another team in the Saskatchewan Midget AAA Hockey League, the Rockets have elected to bring him back to Kelowna for the remainder of the season.

Heffley joins Damon Severson and Jason Siebert as the three-16 year-old's on the Rockets roster.

Ok so how good do the Hawks look? Nino I bet was rusty but when they get it together what will they look like. I saw a period of last nights game on the net this morning and the Hawks have so many big players that can skate it looked like they just pushed our guys around and off the pucks with ease. It looked like we really had problems in the corners trying to win battles ? Regan can you elaborate a bit ? How did we really do besides the score being horrible ?

Well I don't think this move is going to change our fortunes too much, but I'm afraid if thing's don't improve quickly Mr Hamilton will be sending a few of the boy's packing, getting pretty chilly in Prince Albert this time of year boy's!!! 6-1 geezzz!!
