Quakenbush Traded, Lund suspended

A few items from yesterday that became news right about the time I left my office... so I figured I would just wait until this morning.

The big news for Seattle is the trade of 18 year old Winger Isak Quakenbush to Prince George. In return Seattle receives 19 year old Center Colin Haas from Plano, Texas.

In 65 games with the Cougars, Haas had 3 goals and 5 assists, a -17 rating and 37 penalty minutes. I don't know much about him but in general I like the idea of the Tbirds getting a tad bit older for the season. Colin was listed last year at 6'2" and 190 lbs.

For Quakenbush... this is probably a good move for him. Not only will he actually be closer to home but a fresh start for him might help his game. I have been told from several people that Quakenbush is an excellent player in practice and just hadn't been able to translate that into games. Perhaps an opportunity with a young Prince George team is exactly what he needs.

In addition, Chance Lund was suspended for one game for his Cross-Checking Major and Game Misconduct in this past Sunday's game against Portland. Not sure if this applies to a regular season game or just Friday's exhibition game in Tri-Cities.
