The Warriors made a couple of roster moves last week with three different teams. The first deal sent 20 year old Chad Suer to the Everett Silvertips for NHL prospect goaltender Thomas Heemskerk. With that trade, 20 year old goaltender Jeff Bosch was sent to the Kamloops Blazers for a 6th round 2011 Bantam Draft pick. On Saturday, 19 year old forward Riley Reinbolt was sent to Calgary for a conditional draft pick. The Warriors are still carrying five overager’s with Thomas Frazee, Dylan Hood, Spencer Edwards, Brendan Rowinski (on the injured list) and newly acquired goalie Thomas Heemskerk all in that category.
