If you are in the United States and would like a copy of Sudden Death: The Incredible Saga of the 1986 Swift Current Broncos, it is available through amazon.com.
I am told that the books ships one or two days after an order is received.
At least one WHL fan in the Seattle area has received his copy and has ordered another.
If you are in Canada and can’t find it in your favourite bookstore, please check with a store manager as to availability.
THE MacBETH REPORT:
F Lee Goren (Saskatoon, two games in 1995-96) signed a contract for the rest of this season with Linköping (Sweden, Elitserien). He had four goals and eight assists in 13 games with the Pelicans Lahti (Finland, SM-Liiga) earlier this season. Goren played in Elitserien last season with Skellefteå, getting 11 goals and 18 assists in 51 games.
The Swift Current Broncos have brought in F Denis Bosc, 17, from the MJHL’s Steinbach Pistons. He has 16 points, eight of them goals, and 10 penalty minutes in 18 games with Steinbach. Last season, he had 21 points in 52 games with the Pistons. He was a sixth-round selection by the Broncos in the WHL’s 2010 bantam draft. Bosc should be in the lineup tonight in Edmonton. . . .
The Swift Current Broncos also have signed F Jake DeBrusk, a seventh-round pick in the 2011 bantam draft. DeBrusk, a 5-foot-6, 130-pounder from Edmonton, has 18 points, including nine goals, in 14 games with the SSAC Athletics of the Alberta Midget Hockey League this season. He is the son of former NHLer Louie DeBrusk. . . .
The OHL’s board of governors has voted unanimously to allow the Brampton Battalion to move to North Bay, Ont., in time for next season. The folks in North Bay already have purchased more than 2,100 season-ticket packages.
D Troy Rutkowski of the Portland Winterhawks has closed to within 25 games of the franchise record for regular-season games played. Rutkowski has played in 301 games, putting him fifth on the list, 25 in arrears of D Kevin Haupt (1994-99). Rutkowski also has played in 190 consecutive games. Portland’s record in that category is held by D Andrew Ference (221 games, Feb. 18, 1995 to Oct. 11, 1998). Rutkowski missed one game since the 2009-10 season began, and that was to playin the Top Prospects Game in January 2010. . . . During his time with Portland, he has played in 357 of a combined 366 regular-season and playoff games.
The Moose Jaw Warriors have released Russian F Nikita Zagryadskiy, 17. A 6-foot-3, 193-pounder, he had gotten into only three games and was pointless. . . . This leaves the Warriors without any imports on their roster. They selected Zagryadskiy in the 2012 CHL import draft in which they also selected German F Frederik Tiffels, 17. He is with the USHL’s Muskegon Lumberjacks.
