Sanvido and LaChance reassigned...

Rumors ran around me yesterday about this news and it has now been confirmed by the team.

Connor Sanvido and Justin LaChance have been reassigned by the club. Sanvido was the TBirds 1st round bantam pick in 2008 and just wasn't quite ready to make the jump to the big club. I think he still has a very good chance at growing and improving and making an impact for the Tbirds down the road. There are several examples of kids that just aren't quite ready as 16 year old's who come back and make an impact down the road. The most recent and obvious example is Kellan Tochkin for the Silvertips who did not make the club as a 16 year old and came back last year and was arguably the rookie of the year as a 17 year old.

LaChance was a 7th round bantam draft choice and was trying to make the club for the second year in a row. LaChance is another kid who might still be able to contribute down the road for the club and my understanding is that they are keeping him listed as well.

The Tbirds are going to have some additional information about the roster and who is and is not left in camp so make sure you stay tuned to the official website for more information.
