Leedahl gets two games

Today’s news in brief:

– The final verdict is in on Tips winger Dawson Leedahl’s suspension. Leedahl was given two games by the league for his checking-from-behind major penalty against Brandon. Leedahl has already served one game. He’ll sit out Wednesday’s home game against Kamloops, then will be eligible to return Friday when Everett entertains Tri-City.

– With Leedahl out Wednesday, there’s a good chance new winger Darcy DeRoose will be making his Everett debut. DeRoose just joined the team from the AJHL’s Estevan Bruins. I’ve been told Everett wasn’t the only team interested in DeRoose when he was dropped by Moose Jaw. But while other teams had scouts en route to Estevan to see the 18-year-old play, Everett decided to list him immediately after Moose Jaw dropped him. No doubt the Tips are hoping DeRoose works out the way Brayden Low and Logan Aasman did last season, when they were both listed, called in for a look, then played well enough to stick with the team the rest of the way.

– Center Jujhar Khaira has taken the next step in his recovery from his upper-body injury. Khaira took full part in practice today, though he was wearing a no-contact jersey. The Tips are being cautious with Khaira, as they want him at 100 percent before he returns. Therefore, while Khaira is getting closer to returning, he won’t play in any of Everett’s games this week.

– I’m writing about winger Joshua Winquist for Wednesday’s paper, as he’s about as hot a player as there is in the league right now. He has 15 points (six goals, nine assists) in Everett’s past five games and is currently tied for fifth in the league in scoring with 27 points in 16 contests. I’ve written before about how his Everett career tracks that of former Tips winger Shane Harper almost exactly. Well, it just seems to continue. Does that mean the next step for Winquist is a pro contract?
