Brandon Sun: Former Ottawa Senators Head Coach Cory Clouston is hired as the new Brandon Wheat Kings Head Coach. Clouston coached in the WHL before he got a crack in the NHL and you have to wonder how long he’ll be in the WHL before he gets called up again. He’s still in his early-forties.
San Jose Mercury News: The Sharks add defenseman Colin White. Love this pick-up as I am huge Whitey fan (Two-time Stanley Cup Champion in 2000 and 2003 with the Devils). I’m telling you right now, this San Jose Sharks defense corps is looking very impressive right now.
