Ex-Chiefs faring well.

Thanks to the first goal for rookie defenseman Landon Oslanski, Lethbridge has won three in a row. ’s first goal of the season was the winner as the Hurricanes edged the Calgary Hitmen, 3-2. . . . Oslanski, 17, and D Mike Reddington, 19, were traded to Lethbridge when the Spokane Chiefs acquired Kyle Beach two games into the season. Last week Spokane sent over-age forward Dustin Donaghy to the Hurricanes.

Oslanski had an assist in the only game he played for the Chiefs, he has a goal and three assists in 16 games for the Hurricanes. Reddington didn't score for Spokane but he has 13 assists in 19 games for Lethbridge. Donaghy has two assists in two games for Lethbridge, compared to one assist in 13 games for Spokane.

In his 16 games for the Chiefs, Beach has 15 goals and five assists - and 56 penalty mnutes, just 11 shy of what the Hurricanes' Spokane trio has picked up their combined 37 games (50 by Reddington).

You just have to read this, it's not a hockey story, or even a sports story. It's a people story and it's worth every second you spend reading it. Thanks to the Drinnan blog.
