The Prince Albert Raiders have their roster down to 26 players after moving out D Brendan Guhle, 15, F Matteo Gennaro, 15, and D Matt Waseylenko, 19. . . . Guhle, the third overall pick in the 2012 bantam draft, will join a midget AAA team in Sherwood Park, Alta., while Gennaro, the 41st overall selection, will play midget AAA in St. Albert, Alta. . . . Waseylenko is expected to report to the AJHL’s Camrose Kodiaks. From St. Albert, he was fifth-round pick in the 2010 bantam draft. He had three points in four games with the Raiders, but played most of the season with the Kodiaks.
The Victoria Royals placed two 20-year-olds — F Mike Forsyth and G Keith Hamilton — on waivers Sunday. . . . Forsyth, from Calgary, had 15 points in 72 games last season. In 143 career games, including one with the Medicine Hat Tigers and 68 with the Chilliwack Bruins, he has 32 points. . . . Hamilton was the Royals’ starting goaltender last season, going 20-31-1 in 58 appearances. He had a 4.10 GAA and .880 save percentage. . . . The Royals are down to two 20-year-olds — F Jamie Crooks and D Tyler Stahl. . . . Stahl is looking at a suspension after a check-to-the-head major on Friday night against Kelowna. . . . The Royals also trimmed F Clay Spencer, 17, from their roster.
The Vancouver Giants assigned F Logan Harland, 17, to the AJHL’s Bonnyville Pontiacs on Saturday, getting their roster down to 27. . . . On Sunday, WesternEliteHockeyPr (@WEHPscout) tweeted: “The @bladeshockey have acquired forward Logan Harland from the Vancouver Giants. Put up some numbers as a midget player.” . . . Harland, from Paradise Hill, Sask., had one goal in nine games with the Giants last season. He had eight points in 38 games with the Pontiacs.
D Jordan Harris’s name no longer appears on the Prince George Cougars’ roster. So look for word sometime today that he has been assigned elsewhere. Harris was the 10th overall selection in the 2011 bantam draft. . . . Harris is from Prince Albert, so perhaps he’ll return for a second season with the midget AAA Mintos. He had 14 points and 48 penalty minutes in 43 games with the Mintos last season. . . . The Cougars are down to 26 players, including nine defencemen and two goaltenders.
