Calgary Hitmen

Recommended Posts

Might have to take in a game or two to watch him play.

 

Apparently he has 1 assist so far in his first 3 games as a Hitman. And I usually get a couple sets of tickets a year for the Hitmen, definitely looking forward to it more now that I can watch Kanzig crush some bodies in person.

The Hitmen just traded for the rights to G, Thatcher Demko (Canucks prospect).

Demko is a sophomore at Boston College and unlikely to forego his last 2 yrs of college.... BUT it is possible.. and this trade at least helps that speculation along nicely.

Demko is presently at the Team USA camp in a battle to start at World Jrs...

Demko vs McDonald will hopefully be an interesting comparison for the next decade.

So does that make you think he will stick it out for 2 years and go UFA on the Canucks?

I'm not sure what benefit the Hitmen get in this if he doesn't leave BC.

Any ideas? Trade coming?

Just heard Demko interviewed here this morning...
- He hasn't talked to Spokane since he was 14 yrs old.
- Has no intention of leaving school
- Accelerated his grade 12 so he could get to college earlier
- Education is the priority

So it was essentially a nothing transaction for Spokane who knew he wasn't leaving school... But Calgary obviously doesn't know that for sure. So they make the no risk trade for the opportunity to have a quick conversation with the Demko camp and try to sell him on leaving school.

Based on his own words today, he won't be leaving school for the dub.

 

 

 

 

 

(but like most things... there's always a chance)
