Holidays over for Chiefs

The Spokane Chiefs return from Christas break tonight and we welcome them back with a feature on goalie James Reid. The Chiefs face Portland in less than an hour are already behind 3-1 - three Spokane players absent playing in the World Juniors to just one for Portland. Also, Chief rookies Brady Brassart and Mitch Holmberg are off at a Canadian provencial tourney.

I missed all the World Junior action because of the holidays but just heard everything surrounding Tyler Johnson's ejection for Team USA's opening win on Saturday. I'll endeavor to explain it in the next day or two but if any of you fans know of a link or saw what happened, please expound for your fellow fans. I will tell you, inspite of what the broadcasters were saying during the whole affair, Johnson did not receive a concussion during a pre-tournament game.

Check back later for the game story.
