Kosterman on the move

Czech F Jiri Fronk won’t be joining the WHL’s Victoria Royals this season. . . . Cleve Dheensaw of the Victoria Times Colonist reports that the Royals “lost to the KLH Chomutov Under-20s without a puck being fired.” . . . The Royals selected Fronk, 19, in the CHL’s 2013 import draft, but the IIHF has ruled that his contract with Chomutov is valid. . . .  “It was a reasoned written decision. That’s that,” Cam Hope, the Royals’ general manager, told Dheensaw. “It’s obviously disappointing but there’s nothing we can do about it. We have to respect the process because we rely on it both ways.” . . . The Royals are left with one import on their roster — G Patrik Polivka, 19, from Plzen, Czech Republic. . . . Dheensaw’s story is right here.

He had 32 points in 234 games with Calgary. . . . The Cougars now have two 20-year-olds on their roster, the other being F Klarc Wilson.

It was mentioned here yesterday that Calgary Hitmen F Pavel Padakin and Kamloops Blazers F Devin Oakes, both of whom drew three-game WHL suspensions, would miss one exhibition game and two regular-season games. . . . Actually, each already had served one game, so were left with one exhibition game and one regular-season game to serve.

The Red Deer Rebels have added F Kailum Gervais, 18, to their roster. Gervais, 6-foot-0 and 200 pounds, played the last two seasons with the SJHL’s Yorkton Terriers, putting up 48 points, including 16 goals, and 126 penalty minutes in 85 games. . . . Gervais is coming off a knee injury, so will be given some time to skate his way into shape with the Rebels. . . . Greg Meachem of the Red Deer Advocate has more right here.

Logan Clow of the Grande Prairie Daily Herald-Tribune has more right here.

Greg Bishop of The New York Times takes a look right here.
