Pats have log-jam for overage positions

Greg Harder has the story at LeaderPost.com. He also has the Scouting Report which follows:

SCOUTING REPORT

SASKATOON (1-0-0-0) at REGINA (0-2-0-0)

Today, 7 p.m., Brandt Centre

Radio: 620 CKRM

Key injuries: REGINA -- None to report; SASKATOON -- None to report.

Overview: The Blades are back at full strength after the return of their last two NHL campers: F Milan Kytnar (Edmonton) and D Jyri Niemi (New York Islanders) . . . Regina is also welcoming back two key veterans: D Colten Teubert (L.A.) and Matt Delahey (New Jersey). RW Jordan Eberle remains with the Oilers . . . By trading F Chris Langkow to the Everett Silvertips on Tuesday, the Blades have settled on Kytnar, Derek Hulak and Walker Wintoneak (all forwards) as their three 20-year-olds . . . Kytnar's unexpected return (he's under contract to Edmonton) means the team is shopping rookie Swedish forward Hampus Gustafsson. The Blades will run with Kytnar and Niemi as their two imports . . . Saskatoon has played just one regular-season game to date -- a 5-1 win over Regina on Friday. The teams were involved in a third-period line brawl but weren't disciplined by the league . . . LW Matt Strueby has scored the Pats' lone goal over two games. He's also the only member of the team to record a point . . . G Damien Ketlo has stopped 65 of 72 shots in his first two games as the Pats' starter for a .903 save percentage.

Edit: The log-jam sure lasted a long time haha. I'm glad it's been dealt with. Now Parker can get on to dealing Rowat.... Hopefully they can get something for him.
