Every week on TSN Radio's BCHL This Week, host Jeff Paterson guides listeners through the week that was around the league, with several interviews and features highlighting the BCHL's players and coaches both past and present, whether they're a key contributor in the league right now or an alumni doing the league proud at higher levels. Starting this week, that show also includes a stand-out goal chosen to be the league's best of the week that was, and the inaugural BCHL Call of the Week honours were given to Joe Drapluk's tying effort from last Sunday's 4-3 Eagles overtime win.
A little late getting some thoughts up on the last week of Eagles activity and games, but here we go. We'll begin with the flurry of activity that took place last Wednesday, as the team made a pair of moves to bolster their back-end.
If you haven't yet, you can get the full details on these moves from the official press release I typed up after the deals went down. But I'll say a little more about it here now that Chugg and Schartz have played a few games with the team (two out of three of which have been victories).
An extremely competitive training camp with improved depth at every position has been both a blessing and a curse for the Dawson Creek Junior Canucks, as an influx of talented fresh faces means heart-wrenching decisions for the coaching staff.
On Saturday, the hammer fell on the first of those decisions, as goaltender Colton Anderson was cut from the club following a difficult outing that saw him allow five goals in the first 25 minutes of play.
