Banged-up Warriors drop host Broncos … Ferguson gets real taste of NHL … Rassell hat trick sparks Tigers

F Adam Řehák (Medicine Hat, 2011-12) has been released by Invicta Dynamos Gillingham (England, English National Division 1) by mutual agreement. He had six goals and two assists in eight games.


The Moose Jaw Warriors are a bit banged up — they scratched seven skaters from Tuesday night’s game against the host Swift Current Broncos.

That’s why the Warriors brought in D Daemon Hunt, 15, D Matthew Sanders, 16, and D Drae Gardiner, 16.

Hunt, from Brandon, was a first-round pick in the WHL’s 2017 bantam draft. He had one assist in two earlier games with the Warriors. Hunt has 12 assists in 11 games with the midget AAA Brandon Wheat Kings.

Sanders and Gardiner are from Calgary and play for the midget AAA Calgary Buffaloes. Sanders, a fifth-round selection in the 2016 bantam draft, has one goal and eight assists in 14 games. Gardiner, an eighth-round pick in the 2016 bantam draft, has a goal and six assists in 13 games.

Hunt and Gardiner were in Moose Jaw’s lineup last night in Swift Current, while Sanders was a healthy scratch.

The Warriors are missing four defencemen. They have been playing without Josh Brook and Dmitri Zaitsev, then lost Jett Woo and Matthew Benson to undisclosed injuries during a 3-1 victory over the visiting Regina Pats on Sunday.

Brook and Woo are out week-to-week, with Zaitsev listed as day-to-day, and Benson as TBD.

With the three additions, the Warriors now have 11 defencemen on their roster.


With F Kirby Dach having returned from the U-17 World Hockey Challenge, the Saskatoon Blades have sent F Logan Doust, 16, back to the major midget Vancouver-Northwest Giants. . . . Doust, a ninth-round selection in the 2016 WHL bantam draft, was pointless in three games with the Blades.

Meanwhile, the Blades will be without D Seth Bafaro for their next three games as he completes a four-game WHL suspension. With him out of the lineup, they will keep D Randen Schmidt, 17, on their roster until Bafaro is eligible to return. Things will be re-evaluated at that point. Schmidt was brought in from the midget AAA Regina Pat Canadians.


The Kamloops Blazers are likely to be without G Dylan Ferguson again tonight as they play host to the Prince George Cougars.

Ferguson became the fifth goaltender to play for the expansion Vegas Golden Knights this NHL season as he entered in the third period of an 8-2 loss to the host Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday night.

Ferguson left Kamloops on Oct. 30 to join the Golden Knights under the emergency recall rule. The Golden Knights have three goaltenders, including starter Marc-Andre Fleury (concussion), on the injured list.

When last night’s game started, Ferguson was on the bench backing up Maxime Lagace again. That marked Ferguson’s seventh game as the Golden Knights’ No. 2 goaltender.

Ferguson, 19, replaced Lagace with the Oilers holding a 7-2 lead in the third period. Ferguson stopped one of two shots in 9:14, giving up a PP goal to F Mark Letestu at 15:38.

Vegas next is scheduled to play on Thursday against the host Vancouver Canucks. Ferguson is from Lantzville, which is on Vancouver Island.

The Blazers start a stretch of three games in four nights tonight. They are scheduled to entertain the Vancouver Giants on Friday night and the Lethbridge Hurricanes on Saturday.

With Ferguson gone, the Blazers have been using freshman Max Palaga, a 17-year-old native of Kamloops, and Dylan Garand, 15, who plays at the Delta Hockey Academy.

The Blazers (7-12-0) are 3-1-0 since Ferguson left to join the Golden Knights.


The junior B Surrey Knights of the Pacific Junior Hockey League haven’t won a game in two years. It all adds up to an 84-game losing streak. . . . David Ebner of The Globe and Mail takes a look right here at how things got to this state.

Flynn, IceRays battling the storm … King crowns Warriors … Royals recruit Legien

F Brett Ferguson (Red Deer, 2008-11) has signed a one-year contract with the Guildford Flames (England, UK Elite). He played only two exhibition games last season with Gap (France, Ligue Magnus). He was injured, had hip surgery and missed the rest of the season.


When Brad Flynn was apprenticing as a hockey coach, he learned about and handled a lot of things. You can bet that dealing with a hurricane wasn’t one of them.

Flynn is preparing for his second season as the head coach of the NAHL’s Corpus Christi, Texas, IceRays. But, as you will be aware, Corpus Christi, a city of more than 325,000 people, spent some time late last week directly in the path of Hurricane Harvey.

“Nothing has prepared me for this training camp,” Flynn told Taking Note via email on Tuesday.

The tropical storm did veer away, reaching land about 15 miles northeast of downtown Corpus Christi, where the IceRays’ home arena, the American Bank Center, is located. However, it still left behind some damage in the form of downed trees and power lines, broken signs, and some damage to homes and businesses.

Flynn and the IceRays were to have opened training camp on Friday. Of course, that didn’t happen and, in fact, has yet to take place. For the past few days, he has had his hands full with, first, making sure the players and their billets were safe, moving most of them to the Dallas/Fort Worth area, and, second, getting everyone back to Corpus Christi.

In Flynn’s words:

“We had 10 players on the road still coming in and I got them to hunker in the closest city outside the hurricane’s path. The other 20 were here and needed to be evacuated by billets. I believe billeting in junior hockey is one of the most under appreciated aspect. Our billets evacuated and took players they had known less than 24 hours to safety even though we offered to make arrangements.

“Everyone is returning to the city (Wednesday). Our ice isn’t ready and the rink hasn’t been opened but we will begin some off-ice and plenty of community service to help rebuild our city.”

Flynn simply couldn’t say enough good things about the IceRays’ billet families.

“Our billets, many of whom billet the Corpus Christi Hooks minor league baseball team, are the real MVPs of this whole situation,” he wrote. “We have led the league in attendance the last four years. . . . We are going to be giving to our community like they support us through thick and thin.”

The ice had been going into the arena early last week, but the ice-making equipment had to be shut off with the storm approaching. So the ice-making process will have to be done over again once the all-clear is given.

If you are interested, Flynn did an interview that is available right here at nahl.com.

He also told Taking Note: “If people would like to help hurricane victims, they may donate to the Red Cross.” You are able to donate right here.

Before taking over as the head coach in Corpus Christi, Flynn, 32, spent two seasons as an assistant coach with the MJHL’s Swan Valley Stampeders. He was an assistant coach with the IceRays in 2014-15 and filled the same post with the QMJHL’s Acadie-Bathurst Titan in 2015-16.

Flynn’s father, Danny, is a veteran coach who is in his first season as an assistant coach with the WHL’s Portland Winterhawks.

He added three goals and six assists in 11 playoff games as the Wild won the Manitoba Midget Hockey League championship. . . .

The Lethbridge Hurricanes are without two of their veteran players as training camp heads towards the start of the exhibition schedule. D Brennan Riddle and F Ryan Bowen are both out indefinitely with undisclosed injuries. . . . Richard Gibson, writing at dubnetwork.ca, reports that both have “upper-body injuries.” . . . Riddle, 20, is preparing for his fourth WHL season. He had four goals and 14 assists in 68 games with the Hurricanes last season, after being acquired from the Prince Albert Raiders with whom he had played the previous two seasons. . . . Bowen, who will turn 19 on Dec. 10, was acquired last season from the Moose Jaw Warriors. He had six goals and 18 assists in 40 games with the Hurricanes, after putting up five goals and seven assists in 18 games with Moose Jaw.


F Tristen Robins has signed with the Regina Pats, according to bdnmb.ca. From Brandon, Robins was a fourth-round selection by the Pats in the 2017 bantam draft. He will turn 16 on Nov. 15. . . . Two seasons ago, he totalled 51 goals and 40 assists in 35 games with the bantam AAA Wheat Kings. . . . Last season, with the Rink Hockey Academy prep team in Winnipeg, Robins had five goals and eight assists in 25 games. . . . He is the son of former G Trevor Robins (Saskatoon, Brandon, 1989-93).
