Tbirds make a trade

I had to shake myself this morning after not posting anything for some time. I think this is the first time (and might be the last) that I have ever first learned about a Tbird move through the Seattle Times but that is exactly where I found this trade this morning.

Seattle trades 17 year old forward Steve Oursov to Red Deer for 18 year old forward Mike Krgovich.

I'm a little surprised by this trade since Oursov looked decent last year in the 3 games he played with the Tbirds. He spent the rest of the season playing for the Trail Smoke Eaters (still one of the coolest names in sports).

With the 2008-09 season being a big year for the franchise, my guess is this is just a move to get a little bit older and experienced. Krgovich is listed at 6' and 175 lbs and had 4 goals and 3 assists in 63 games last season for Red Deer. He also added 54 PIM's.

Tbirds also picked up a 5th round draft pick in the deal.
