Looking to strengthen their goal tending and to shake up the roster, the Spokane Chiefs made a big move Wednesday morning, trading leading scorer Anthony Bardaro to Prince. To pick up goalie Eric Williams and forward Todd Fiddler (above in October matchup, going against now injured Spokane defenseman Tanner Mort), the Chiefs also sent backup goalie Luke Lee-Knight back to the Raiders, along with the fifth-round Bantam Draft pick they got when they traded Tyler Vanscourt to Prince Albert for Lee-Knight in September.
The Spokane Chiefs had a pretty impressive hat trick this week – coming from behind to win three Western Hockey League games.
This time they broke through with three third-period goals against Everett to pull out a 3-1 win.
Stars: 3, Everett goalie Kent Simpson with 35 saves. 2, Anthony Bardaro with assists on first two Spokane goals, 1, Captain Darren Kramer, with tying goal, winning assist and Gordie Howe hattrick.
