Interviews with Kole Gable & Manny Viveiros

The Swift Current Broncos added to their depth this week in part responding to the number of injuries they’re dealing with at the moment. Kole Gable comes to Swift Current from Edmonton where he was playing more of a depth role as a sophomore. The 18-year-old has scored at other levels before and is looking forward to a fresh start with the Broncos as they deal with some holes in their lineup. I chatted with Manny Viveiros yesterday and Kole himself today.

Broncos Prospect Update

As the season goes along I like to keep track of how the Swift Current Broncos prospects are doing. Unfortunately without video for most of those leagues I can’t exactly give scouting reports for how guys are playing and numbers really only tell a percentage of the story.

That said they do help in certain cases like the tremendous success guys like Logan Barlage, Carter Dyck, Josh Prokop and Ethan Regnier are having to name a few. It’s also important to understand what kind of a situation a guy is playing with. How good is the league compared to his age? How good is his team and what kind of role is he playing? All those things factor in. You look at an elite prospect like Jacson Alexander who got hurt at U16s so he hasn’t played since but had 4 points in 5 games so the early story is good but incomplete.

Really it’s just fun to keep an eye on how things are developing but we can’t take it too seriously either.

Post-Game: Broncos 3 Hitmen 2 (OT)

Tyler Steenbergen is quickly becoming ‘Mr. Overtime.’

The 18-year-old scored the overtime winner for the third time this season as the Swift Current Broncos beat the Calgary Hitmen 3-2 tonight.

“We were getting a little tired at the end of our shift,” Steenbergen said. “(Lane Pederson) made a nice drop pass to me and I realized the d-man was a forward so I made a quick step to the middle, chucked it on net and luckily it went in.”

Steenbergen now sits third in the WHL in goals with 13 and tied for second in the league with 4 game winning goals. He also scored the OT winners in Prince George and at home against Spokane.

The good news keeps on coming for Broncos forward Lane Pederson. He signed an NHL deal with Arizona a couple weeks ago, was named an alternate captain here and now has been added to Team WHL for the CIBC Canada/Russia Series. Pederson will go head-to-head with Broncos D Artyom Minulin who is playing for Russia.

Tonight the injury riddled Broncos call up Josh Baker who almost made the club out of training camp. I don’t know the status of Kaden Elder after he was knocked out of Wednesday’s game. If he’s in the Broncos would have a full roster otherwise they could be one short. We will find out during pre-game. It’s always hard fought hockey against Calgary and this weekend shouldn’t be any different.
