The Blazers thread [WHL]


Recommended Posts



Kamloops, BC – Kamloops Blazers General Manager, Craig Bonner, announced today that the Blazers have sent 19-year-old forward, J.T. Barnett, to the Everett Silvertips in exchange for a 3rd round WHL Bantam pick in 2013. The team has also added 18-year-old forward, Brock Balson to the roster.

"We'd like to thank J.T. and wish him luck in Everett," commented General Manager, Craig Bonner. "Brock is a big forward and has WHL experience with the Prince Albert Raiders. He has played well in Junior A this season, and we expect him to be a good fit on our roster."

Barnett had 4 goals, 2 assists and 6 points in 16 games with the Blazers this season. Balson, who is a Kamloops native, has 10 goals, 9 assists and 19 points in 20 games with the Salmon Arm Silverbacks of the BCHL this season. Last year, Balson played 48 games with the Prince Albert Raiders and had a goal and two assists.

With these transactions, the Kamloops Blazers roster still sits at 23 players, including 13 forwards, 8 defensemen and 2 goaltenders. This does not include 19-year-old forward Jordan DePape, who is out with a long-term injury.

20 Victories, Six in a Row, 1st Place in the B.C. Division

The Kamloops Blazers have played well in the 2011-12 season. The hockey club is currently riding a six-game winning streak and has a record of 20-7-1-0. The Blazers won all four games this past week and have improved to 17-3-1-0 against Western Conference opponents this season.

The Blazers are the second team in the WHL to have hit the 20-win plateau. They just finished playing six games in the past nine nights and won all six games. The Blazers continue to lead the B.C. Division, sitting one point ahead of the Vancouver Giants with three games in hand.

and why arent any of the blazers on the world junior roster?
