On top of Kootenay's Tim Bozon still in a medically induced coma remains in critical condition in a Saskatoon hospital this has been one very rough week for the kids playing junior hockey. Sometimes we all are so caught up in the development of these young players that we forget that they are just teenagers. Let us please pray that Trafford is found safe and sound and Bozon makes a recovery from meningitis.
Anthony Duclair (NYR 2013 3rd) missed his 4th game as he deals with an "upper body" injury/concussion.
