Howden Headed into Final Showing before Last Cuts are Made

Quinton Howden had 3 assists in team White’s 7-5 win over team Red Monday night. Howden was on team White with Wheat Kings Brayden Schenn and Scott Glennie along with Swift Current’s Cody Eakin.

The coaching staff made their first round of cut’s this morning, releasing nine of their expected 18 releases.

Released players:
Brad Ross (F- Portland)
Brendan Gallagher (F-Vancouver)
Joey Hishon (F-Owen)
Garrett Wilson (F-Owen)
Linden Vey (F-Medicine Hat)
Ryan Howse (F- Chilliwack)
Reilly Smith (F- Miami U)

Brayden McNabb (D-Kootenay)
Jesse Blacker (D- Owen)

The remaining players at selection camp will dress for Tuesday night's game against the Canadian University National Team. Assuming this year's squad goes with 13 forwards, seven defencemen and two goaltenders, there are still four forwards, three blueliners and two goalies left to release. Head coach Dave Cameron and his staff will make those final cuts on Wednesday morning, when the 22-man roster is finalized for the 2011 World Junior Hockey Championship beginning on Boxing Day.
