McColgan speaks on trade

Shane McColgan is taking the cup half full approach following his trade to the Saskatoon Blades.

McColgan was traded along with Jessey Astles to the Saskatoon Blades Thursday for Ryan Olsen and two bantam picks.

The 19 year-old says leaving Kelowna isn't easy, but their is a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

"I am really exciting going forward. They are obviously hosting the Memorial Cup and hopefully this being my last year of junior, this is a good move."

McColgan was the Rockets first round pick in the 2008 WHL bantam draft.

"Saskatoon is a good fit for me. Things weren't working out for me in Kelowna. They are a great organization but it was time for a change and I got lucky with Saskatoon", McColgan added.

McColgan played in 212 regular season games with the Rockets and registered his 200th career point late in the 2011-2012 campaign.

Two words. Good Riddance. It is clear with this interview that McColgan hated being in Kelowna, and rumor has it was a massive cancer in the room. Aidios.

Not sure. I doubt it though.

Blades must have really wanted Astles badly enough to take Mc, its all about me, as a throw-in. Jared, you were too kind in your post.

JC totally agree with you......says alot about a player when he gets suspended for numerous embelishment peanalities....... I wouldn't want him on my team.

Liked Astles but not a major piece of this rebulding process.
