Chiefs win shootout; Jared Spurgeon getting noticed

It was teddy bear toss in Vancouver, spoiled  by the Spokane Chiefs when Blake Gal was the only one of six shooters to score in the shoot-out. That’s four wins in a row for the Chiefs heading into a home game tonight against Kamloops.

A year ago Jared Spurgeon was playing hockey for the Spokane Chiefs and fighting for his professional life. He had been drafted by wasn’t signed. He had a great season, got a free agent try-out with Minnesota, was invited to camp, signed a contract and sent to Houston in the AHL. He’s already in the NHL and getting noticed, as this story by Kent Youngblood of The Minneapolis Star-Tribune suggests.

Meanwhile, the Tri-City Americans made a big trade.
