Jason Siedem and Daniel North are no longer listed on the roster. I didn't think Siedem showed much, but I thought for sure North would have made the roster. I liked his game better than Greye Rampton, who is still here.
Has anyone heard how long Luke Ashton will be out?

What happened to Luke Ashton?

I haven't been impressed with Jason Siedem, Greye Rampton or Adam Bourgeois. I wasn't surprised to see Siedem gone. I thought Daniel North looked good in at least one preseason game. I was a little surprised to see him not with the team anymore.

Maybe Braden Smith will replace Adam Bourgeois?

With the BCHL leaving the CJHL this year, are the rules the same as last season? Is the max limit for players/rosters still at 23?
