Big trade in WHL

A four-player, three draft pick trade came down in the Western Hockey League Wednesday between Lethbridge and Regina. For details, and a nice tip of the hat to the Seattle Thunderbirds for raising money for the Lakewood Police Guild, check out Gregg Drinnan's blog. That's a lot easier than hitting numerous websites.

The trade will have no impact on the Spokane Chiefs unless they meet Regina for the WHL championship. There is this quick note from the Chiefs, who play in Chilliwack on Friday and are home on Saturday against Swift Current. The home game is Teddy Bear toss night. Drinnan found a story on the event that has spread through junior hockey.
