Beach update

Just back from practice. Here’s what I found out regarding Kyle Beach.

– Beach was knocked unconscious by Chris Bruton’s punch after Wednesday’s game. Head coach John Becanic didn’t know for how long, but he estimated Beach was out for somewhere between 15 seconds and a minute. He was not taken to a hospital following the game.

– Beach’s condition was still not known. He was expected to be checked out for a concussion sometime this afternoon. There was no mention of any other possible injuries. Becanic listed Beach as doubtful for tomorrow’s game against Portland.

– There’s been no word on whether the league will take any action against Bruton. A message left with league VP Richard Doerksen, who handles discipline, has yet to be returned.

– There were no inflammatory remarks coming out of the Everett camp. They seem to be taking a wait-and-see approach until the league decides a course of action.

– Word out of the Spokane camp is that the Chiefs feel confident Bruton will not be suspended.

And in non-Beach related news:

– Despite the victory Becanic was not pleased with the way the Tips played in Spokane, and he skated the team pretty hard in practice.

– Defenseman Mike Alexander was getting a lot of props. He was recorded with nine blocked shots last night, leaving about six welts on various parts of his body. One welt on his bicep apparently is about the size of a fist (I didn’t see it myself).

– Center Zack Dailey should be back tomorrow. He sat out last night’s game with a knot in his back.
