Tuesday . . .

The WHL exhibition schedule opens Wednesday night with the Swift Current Broncos meeting the host Moose Jaw Warriors in the Civic Centre (aka the Crushed Can). . . . Matthew Gourlie of the Moose Jaw Times-Herald reports that the Moose Jaw G Brandon Glover, 18, will be the oldest player in the Warriors’ lineup. F Joey Kornelsen is the only other veteran expected to be dressed for the home side.
The OHL’s Kitchener Rangers have announced a healthy profit from last season’s operations. Jeff Hicks of the Kitchener-Waterloo Record has the story right here. Of particular interest is how much a three-round playoff run was worth to the bottom line. Check it out.
Myles Stoesz, hockey enforcer, is leading the good life and Eric Welsh of the Chilliwack Progress has the story right here. It’s a good one.
City council in Lethbridge has given the OK to spending $1.2 million on a new video score clock. It should be in place when the renovations are completed in the Enmax Centre for next season. The vote, by the way, was 8-0 in favour of the new gizmo. . . . The cost of the clock is over and above the $33.7-million budget for renovations. . . . Having a new first-rate video scoreboard won’t hurt the Hurricanes’ chances of landing the 2013 Memorial Cup. . . . The Lethbridge Herald reports: “The $1.2-million price tag includes $525,000 for the scoreboard itself, $516,000 for video production facilities and about $175,000 for installation, design and consultation costs.”
