Hey it’s Scott Alan,
Where’s Chris Levesque when you need him?
Ryan Miller is having some hip tightness and will not dress for tonight’s home tilt with the St. Louis Blues.
Jacob Markstrom will start in goal… but who will back him up? Chris Levesque – who played for UBC at the time – acted as the Canucks’ backup goalie back in 2003 when there wasn’t time to get another goalie to Vancouver.
Richard Bachman and Thatcher Demko of the Utica Comets are in upstate New York, unable to get a direct flight here. Michael Garteig of the Alaska Aces is unable to get a flight from Anchorage.
That means finding a local option. Enter Matt Hewitt of the UBC Thunderbirds. He’s from New Westminster and played three years of junior with the Regina Pats.
Good luck Matt!
