The biggest news that broke while you were sleeping was Seth Ambroz committing to the University of Minnesota for the 2011 season. He lit up the Select 15's earlier this month with eight goals and three assists. With New Prague Trojans last year as a freshman, he had 36 goals and 32 assists in 27 games.
A source has confirmed that his current plan for this season is to play with the Omaha Lancers of the United States Hockey League. It should be interesting if he leaves for the National Team Development Program for the 2009-2010 season. The Seattle Thunderbirds have his WHL rights.
The Tri-City Americans have signed their 2nd Round Pick, Nils Moser, to a Standard Player Agreement. With the Airdrie AAA Bantam club in Alberta, he tallied 28 goals and 46 assists. This season, he's heading to the famed Notre Dame Hounds Midget AAA club in Wilcox, Saskatchewan.
The Regina Pats have come to terms with defenseman Myles Bell. He was their 1st Round Selection in 2008. This offensive defenseman had 17 goals and 15 assists in 31 games.
Former Lethbridge Hurricane and Tri-City American, Colton Yellow Horn, will be with the Red Bulls Salzburg of the Austria Erste Bank Liga. He had 48 goals and 49 assists with the Tri-City Americans.
Ryan McDonough who played for the Saginaw Spirit lasy year is also trying out for the Red Bulls Salzburg this season. If he doesn't make the team he will rejoin the Spirit. He had 45 goals and 44 assists last year. Don't confused with the Montreal Canadiens draft pick Ryan McDonagh who plays for University of Wisconsin.
Baie-Comeau and the Quebec Ramparts (in the left hand column) release their training camp roster.
That's My Take
