The Windsor Spitfires will appeal the disciplinary action taken against them and announced by the OHL on Friday. All they have to do is figure out the details of the appeal process. Jim Parker of the Windsor Star has that story right here.
The Tri-City Americans have acquired F Phil Tot, 19, from the Lethbridge Hurricanes for a fifth-round selection in the 2013 bantam draft and a second-round selection in 2014. . . . Tot, from Calgary, had asked the Hurricanes to move him. He was the 18th overall selection in the 2008 draft. He had 76 points, including 23 goals, and 90 penalty minutes in 175 games with the Hurricanes. Last season, he reached careers highs in games played (61), goals (14), assists (31) and points (45). . . . A late birthday, Tot wasn`t selected in the 2012 NHL draft, although he was at No. 100 in NHL Central Scouting`s final ranking of draft-eligible North American skaters. . . . “With a shortage of quality ’93-born forwards in the league this year, I felt that this was a trade we had to pursue,” said Tri-City GM Bob Tory in a news release. “We graduated a lot of quality forwards from last year’s club and to be able to add a top-six forward to our mix in mid-August is huge for our club.”
The Regina Pats have extended the contract of general manager Chad Lang through 2013-14. Lang, who is preparing for his third season in the position, took over from longtime GM Brent Parker, who now is the Pats`president. . . . The Pats went 37-27-8 last season.
F Colton Yellow Horn, 25, has signed with the ECHL’s Ontario Reign. Last season, Yellow Horn put up 55 points in 58 games with the Central league’s Allen Americans. . . . He played 330 regular-season games over five seasons (2003-08) in the WHL, splitting it between the Lethbridge Hurricanes and Tri-City Americans.
