Swiss Ritchie

Byron Ritchie à Genève

Selon divers médias romands, Genève-Servette a engagé le centre canadien Byron Ritchie. En provenance des Vancouver Canucks (NHL), ce centre râblé est le 5e étranger des Vernets sous contrat pour la saison à venir.

That’s from 24 Heures but Hockey Bums makes it slightly easier to understand: Byron Ritchie has a 1-year deal in Switzerland.

In other ex-Canucks news, Trevor Letowski went to Russia (which earned him a pay raise over the NHL) and Jan Hlavac went to Sweden. (Sadly, Jan’s Glasgow, Scotland career just wasn’t destined to be. Damn.) wink

P.S. (Updated at 11:44am PT) And Tyler Bouck is now a Sabre. So at least one of the “Ghosts of Canucks Past” are staying in the NHL this week.

Morrison’s NHL Iron Man Streak at Risk?

From Elliott Pap at the Vancouver Sun,

[Brendan] Morrison, the current NHL iron man with 512 consecutive games played, injured his wrist in Wednesday’s 4-3 shootout loss to San Jose. He did not practise today and coach Alain Vigneault said he was waiting word on the severity of the injury.

“Brendan is going to get it checked out this afternoon and we’ll have further details tomorrow,” Vigneault explained following practice at Burnaby 8-Rinks.


It would be very disappointing if Morrison’s long NHL streak were to end, but on the bright side Pap reports that other members of the Vancouver Ambulance Brigade (Rick Rypien, Byron Ritchie and Aaron Miller) are all ready to go.  So that’s something good, anyway…
