Here is a press release from the Broncos this afternoon:
Swift Current, SK – Swift Current Bronco General Manager and Head Coach Mark Lamb announced that the club has re-assigned 19-year-old defenceman Eric Walker and 18-year-old goaltender Steven Myland.
Walker has been re-assigned to the Alberni Valley Bulldogs of the BCHL. He was acquired by the Broncos in January 2012 from the Vancouver Giants. The 6’2”, 193-pound product of Castlegar, BC appeared in three games with the Broncos this season where he recorded 5 PIM and posted a plus/minus rating of +1.
Myland has been re-assigned to the North Delta Devils of the PIJHL. He was acquired by the Broncos in January 2011 from the Kootenay Ice. The 6’1”, 203-pound native of Cloverdale, BC made three pre-season appearances with the club where he recorded a 1.54 GAA and a 0.947 save percentage.
I’ll have more on the blog when I get more information on the roster moves from Mark Lamb. For now I want to wish both Walker and Myland the best of luck and I hope they both have terrific seasons. They’re both quality young men and quality players who just ran into the numbers game here in my view.
