- It's a busy week in Rocketville. Head Coach Ryan Huska is in Edmonton/Fort McMurray for the Canadian World Junior Team summer evaluation camp. Huska is an assistant coach for a second straight year on Team Canada. The Rockets don't have a player participating at the camp but they do have a prospect. Dillon Simpson was selected by the Rockets in the 8th round of the 2008 WHL Bantam Draft. He never played a game with the Rockets, but practiced with the team before electing to pursue his hockey career at the University of North Dakota.
- Rockets forward Shane McColgan is in Lake Placid New York today for the start of the U.S National Junior Team summer camp. The 2012 World Juniors are December 26th to January 5th in Calgary and Edmonton.
- Brady Leavold is making a comeback. Leavold, who played one season with the Rockets in 2007-2008, is returning to hockey after sitting out all of last season to nurse a concussion. The now 23 year-old is attempting to crack the lineup of Missouri Mavericks of the Central Hockey League. Working with a martial arts trainer four days a week, Leavold tells me he is in the best shape of his life. After playing junior at 5'9 and 190 pounds, the Port Coquitlam resident now weighs a solid 216 pounds.
