F Logan Barlage, the fourth overall selection in the WHL’s 2016 bantam draft, will make his debut with the Swift Current Broncos on Wednesday night when they play host to the Edmonton Oil Kings. . . . Barlage is playing for the midget AAA Prince Albert Mintos. He has six goals and six assists in seven games. . . . The 6-foot-3, 190-pound native of Humboldt has a goal and three assists in four exhibition games with the Broncos. Last season, he had 125 points, including 60 goals, with the bantam AA Humboldt Broncos.

The Spokane Chiefs have dropped F Logan Foster, 17, from their roster, although he will remain on their protected list. A native of Kamsack, Sask., Foster is expected to join a team in the SJHL. Foster was a seventh-round pick by the Chiefs in the 2014 WHL bantam draft. This season, he had one assist in seven games with Spokane.

A tip of the cap to the Regina Pats for a terrific marketing move for Sunday’s game against the visiting
ETHAN BEAR
Seattle Thunderbirds. . . . Seattle’s roster includes D Ethan Bear, who is from the Ochapowace First Nation that is located just east of Regina. . . . Knowing that Bear was coming home, the Pats held First Nations and Metis Awareness Night and attracted their first sellout (6,484) of the season to the Brandt Centre. . . . The crowd, many of whom were there to see Bear, got its money worth, too, as he had had a goal and two assists, although the Pats won the game, 6-3, with two empty-netters. . . . "It's something I'll remember for the rest of my life," Bear told Greg Harder of the Regina Leader-Post. "I'm not sure if I'll ever get anything like that again but that's the support I get (from home). The way our culture supports one another is amazing. I'm very proud of that. I'm happy I was able to get one tonight and let them cheer for me. It was a very special moment.” . . . Harder’s story is right here.

G Declan Hobbs, 18, who was dropped from the roster of the Kootenay Ice last week, has joined the SJHL’s Nipawin Hawks. Hobbs, from Saskatoon, was a third-round pick by the Ice in the 2013 WHL bantam draft. . . . 
A Vancouver radio station reported Monday that D Bowen Byram, whom the Vancouver Giants selected third overall in the 2016 bantam draft, is on the move. According to News 1130 Sports, Byram is leaving the midget AAA Lethbridge Hurricanes to attend the Yale Hockey Academy.
