Voice of the Weyburn Red Wings Kevin Smith had a chat with Wings GM Ron Rumball during the first intermission of the Weyburn/Yorkton game last night on AM1190. Among the discussion was the recent Drew George rumours.
For those that are unaware of the situation, the 1991 born George was traded within the BCHL from Vernon to Cowichan Valley but has chosen not to report. The Regina native has been highly sought after by his hometown Regina Pats in the WHL but will not sign as he doesn't want to ruin his NCAA eligibility. The word going around is that he is hoping to get a deal closer to home in the SJHL.
Well last night on the AM1190 broadcast play-by-play voice of the Wings Kevin Smith chatted with Rumball who revealed that a deal is on the table with Cowichan Vally and they are waiting to hear back.
There has been some talk that if the Wings can't reach a deal George could end up in La Ronge via a trade. I'd like to see him in Kindersley with young talent like Duzan, Dommett, King and Thorimbert.
So now we just sit and wait.
