Rockets reduce roster

The Kelowna Rockets reduced their roster today, sending 16 year-old forward Justin Kirkland back to Saskatchewan.
Kirkland, the Rockets 5th round pick in the 2011 draft, will likely play in Notre Dame this season.
Kirkland played in four pre-season games, collecting an assist and six minutes in penalties.
That leaves the Rockets with three - 16 year-old's. Rourke Chartier, Austin Glover and Riley Stadel remain with the team.

Hey Reagan, Any chance were going to get Zemgus Girgensons with nhl teams send most draft picks to the chl today

Regan Bartel said...

Sabres sent 20 players to AHL team today, with Girgensons being one of them. NHL lockout means better chance of getting him.

hey regan u know if they do anything about the bad atmosphere at the games i know it hard when the rockets arent winning but it needs to get better. i sit in 104 and notice a few fans really get into it by being coal one guy sits by the tunnel. if more fans were like him it would make the game better.

That guy by the tunnel is me :P I am very vocal at the games and enjoy getting the crowd chanting "Go Rockets Go" You can expect much of the same this year :)
