John Carlson got his X-Rays back the other day and they came up negative. His status for tonight's marquee game against the Windsor Spitfires is questionable.

The Spokane Chiefs has taking Ondrej Roman off their roster. The 19-year-old has returned to his native Czech Republic where he has five points in 16 games with Viktovice HC. Sounds like he wants to return to the Chiefs

He is playing in his native Czech Republic while apparently awaiting his release so that he can return to the Chiefs for whom he played the previous two seasons. "We have an import spot available for Ondrej if he returns to Spokane," Chiefs GM Tim Speltz said in a release. "There is no immediate timeline for his return so we're going to remove him from the roster."
Western College Hockey has the latest commitments to Western schools.

That's My Take

Free Ondrej Roman!

Carlson should play tonight.

That Roman kid was a good player for the Chiefs in last years playoffs.

Lot of trade rumours heating up in the OHL.

Still nothing burning hot on Tavares yet.

Scratch Carlson, he and Korostin are sitting tonight. Doctors want him to wait another day so he'll probably go Friday night at home.
