SJHL trade rumour

Drew George is apparently on his way to the SJHL.

The following was taken earlier today from the blog of Regina Pats' voice Rod Pedersen:

The Regina product and Telus Cup champ from the Notre Dame Hounds was at practice with the Pats Wednesday. He's in limbo after electing not to report to Cowichan Valley after his recent BCHL trade from Vernon.

Team officials tell me George isn't expected to play in this weekend's home games (Saturday against Brandon and Sunday against P.A.), however they're hopeful they can convince him to. For now, he's just practicing with his hometown team.

The '91 born George has 17 points (10g 7a) in 24 games in the BCHL.

Though he continues to practise with the Pats today, Pedersen did a 1 on 1 interview where he said he won't be playing in this weekend's games because he doesn't want to ruin his NCAA eligibility.

Talks are said to be ongoing to get a deal worked out with a team in the SJHL. One could speculate that it could be Weyburn (leading the conference) or Notre Dame (where George played midget hockey) which are both close to Regina.

Being a '91 with loads of upside, I would seem him fitting in really well in Kindersley. This team, as I mentioned earlier, is loaded with young talent and the future looks bright for the next few years.

We'll find our more as the days progress. He won't want to be out of game action for long.
