Bet you didn't know former Spokane Chiefs defenseman Jared Spurgeon is the leading scorer among blue-liners for the Minnesota Wild.
On the home front, Brenden Kichton is returned from the Team Canada camp but Dominik Uher will be headed to join the Czech Republic for the World Junior tournament. Also, Corbin Baldwin has lost the mullet.
Unconfirmed but the hot rumor around Spokane Chiefs hockey is that Tanner Mort, who has been scratched from the last five games, including tonight, has requested a trade. Other scratches are Tyler King and Carter Proft.
