Commit Cycle: September 6

Jonathan Milley

Right Wing
Pembroke Lumber Kings (CCHL)
6'4", 215 pounds
Ottawa, ON
Class of 2012
DOB 5/8/1991

Date Opponent                Score  G   A Pts PIM

8/31 at Kemptville (ex)      W 6-3  1   1   2   6 [box score]
9/2  at North Bay (ex)       W 3-2  -   -   -   - [box score
9/4  vs. Carleton Place (ex) W 2-1  -   -   -   - [box score]
9/5  at Kanata (ex)          W 4-2  0   0   0   5 [box score]

Milley took a visit to PSU over the weekend, causing him to miss his team's Friday and Sunday games...the Lumber Kings rallied from an early 3-0 hole Wednesday night, with Milley contributing a pair of power play points to the comeback...despite the effort, he said he was "not too happy with [his] play," perhaps in part because of an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty at the end of the first period that helped lead to Kemptville's 3-0 goal...on Monday, Milley returned - for 1:26 of the game anyway, at which point he took a head contact major/game misconduct...the PLK crew will officially begin their CJHL title defense on Saturday when they take on Hawkesbury.

Reed Linaker

St. Albert Steel (AJHL)
5'9", 165 pounds
Edmonton, AB
Class of 2012
DOB 11/4/1991

Date Opponent                Score  G   A Pts PIM

8/30 vs. Camrose (ex)        W 7-1  -   -   -   - [box score]
9/2  at Sherwood Park (ex)   W 5-0  -   -   -   - [box score]
9/3  vs. Sherwood Park (ex)  L 3-5  -   -   -   - [box score]
9/4  vs. Spruce Grove (ex)   L 3-7  -   -   -   - [box score]

The Steel got on track last Tuesday against an also-struggling Camrose club, with Linaker providing an assist on the 5-1 goal...he also go into a fight for the second consecutive week, a pretty useless skill in college hockey, but one that might indicate a grit factor...there's not really much to report for the last three games, although it's extremely likely that Linaker didn't play in at least two of them...the Steel's exhibition season is now concluded, and they begin playing games that count Friday versus the Olds Grizzlies.

David Glen

Spruce Grove Saints (AJHL)
6'0", 175 pounds
Fort Saskatchewan, AB
Class of 2012
DOB 2/14/1991

Date Opponent                Score  G   A Pts PIM

8/30 vs. Sherwood Park (ex)  W 5-0  -   -   -   - [box score]
8/31 vs. Drayton Valley (ex) L 3-4  -   -   -   - [box score]
9/2  at Drayton Valley (ex)  W 7-4  -   -   -   - [box score]
9/4  at St. Albert (ex)      W 7-3  -   -   -   - [box score]

Glen had an assist on the initial goal in the Saints' shutout win Tuesday...he also, while drawing a second-period high sticking penalty, received praise for his effort both on that play and generally...much as with Reed Linaker, updates were extremely sporadic as the weekend went on, particularly on Sunday when Glen's and Linaker's teams squared off...this is a problem that should be rectified for the start of the regular season Saturday against the Grande Prairie Storm.

Kenny Brooks

Tri-City Storm (USHL)
6'0", 179 pounds
Las Vegas, NV
Class of 2012
DOB 12/11/1991

While Brooks and the Storm don't begin their exhibition season for another nine days, the PSU commit was named one of Tri-City's co-captains for this coming season...he'll wear the C during home games, while teammate Nick Lappin will carry the honor for road games...after moving to defense last season due to injuries, Brooks decided to move back to forward during the Storm's tryout camp.
