THE MacBETH REPORT:
D Bryce Lampman (Kamloops, 2002-03) has signed a contract for the rest of the season with Ingolstadt (Germany DEL). He was pointless in five games with the Houston Aeros (AHL) this season.
Steve Ewen, who writes for the Vancouver Province and covers the Vancouver Giants, continues to make progress as he crushes the tumour with humour. You may check out his latest blog entry right here.
The Calgary Hitmen will add D Brody Luhning, 18, to their roster as they return to action after the Christmas break. Kuhning, an eighth-round pick by the Swift Current Broncos in the 2007 bantam draft, has 23 points and 50 penalty minutes in 35 games with the SJHL’s Battlefords North Stars. Kuhning, from Lumsden, Sask., had one assist in 30 games with Swift Current last season. . . . The Hitmen are at home to the Moose Jaw Warriors on Tuesday.
Elliott Pap of the Vancouver Sun reports that the Vancouver Giants expect to have two injured players back for tonight’s game with the visiting Kamloops Blazers. D Zach Hodder (shoulders) is expected to play his first game of the season, while F Greg Lamoure (shoulder) hasn’t played since Dec. 4. . . . The Giants may still be without D David Musil, who has a deep bone bruise on his right shin and hasn’t played since Dec. 7. That injury kept him off the ice when he joined the Czech junior team before Christmas. . . . The Giants also will be without F Matt Bellerive, who is with Team Pacific at the U-17 World Hockey Challenge in Winnipeg and Portage la Prairie. . . . The Blazers likely will have D Josh Caron (broken collarbone) back for the first time since the second game of the season. But they will be missing D Brady Gaudet and F Logan McVeigh, both of whom are with Team Western at the WHC. The Blazers are expected to have F Matt Needham of the Okanagan Hockey Academy and D Landon Cross from the midget AAA Brandon Wheat Kings in their lineup. Both were 2010 bantam draft picks. . . . The Giants and Blazers meet in Kamloops on Tuesday firstname.lastname@example.org
