Junior Hockey Update

I haven't had time to watch the transactions pages of the USHL and NAHL very closely of late, and wanted to catch up on the news of players moving into and out of leagues, being placed on IR, etc. I will make these changes to Wisconsin Hockey Players Division 1 Watch shortly.

Sean Wiles was traded from Tri-City to Santa Fe of the NAHL on December 7th. He still has not shown up on the NAHL website or the Santa Fe website, so he may be out of hockey at this point.

Potential UW recruit Jason Gregoire was put on the 45-day IR by Lincoln on 11/27, meaning he will not be back in action until mid-January at the soonest. He played in just 4 games this year racking up 8 points. It's very ironic that Gregoire's injury, among others, gave Patrick Johnson the chance to join Lincoln, play extremely well, and have Johnson get a scholarship to UW while Gregoire is still sidelined and has not made a college commitment.

Scott Pulak was traded out of the NAHL to the Soo Indians.
