    '06 draft eligible d-man Tysen Dowzak who was planning on playing in the USHL this year will instead be going to the WHL.

    Personally, I think this is a great move for him. He seems to be the prototypical WHL d-man and I think this will do a lot for his game and his draft stock.

    this move makes alot of sense, i think he will benefit much more playing in the most physical junior league in north america, not saying he wouldnt have done fine in the ushl. what a steal for kelowna, id love to see guys like okposo and forney go in that direction.

    No No do not say that!! I want to see Okposo with my Gophers in another year! Forney is looking more and more like a player the Gophers are also looking at.

    Damn, I was convinced Dowzak was going to the Sioux.

    Oh well :cry:

    Wicked news, Kelowna is going to have a stellar team this year, only losing 4 guys from last years WHL Championship team.

    hes definitely going to help. i think this move, if he plays to his potential, will solidify him as a 1st rounder.

    He's an overager right? It's very rare for a team to use both their overager and Euro position on the same player.

    that's what I had thought, but apparently that was the plan before it was discovered he'd need surgery in the offseason that would keep him out. they were apparently very pleased with his play,especially in the playoffs, and had intended to go ahead and retain him...but...like i said, i have no idea what the plan is now.

    Weber, Mosienko, Palin and I think the other is Bodie.

    Looks like Weber and Palin will be replaced by Edler and now this Dowzak kid.

    Darzins will likely be replaced by the other Euro we drafted this offseason.

    A guy within the organization like Cuthbert will prolly take up Mosie's spot.

    IIRC Spurgeon will also be out for a few months for the same reason as Darzins. So somebody will have to take his place for awhile too.

    IIRC Shoulder surgery like Darzins. I'm pretty sure it was him. It was in the same article as Darzins.

    Yeah, December return for both. I found the article on the Capital News' website, but I can't get a working link for it because of their weird archiving system. Searching for 'Darzins' on http://www.kelownacapnews.com/ brings it up, though.

    As for Dowzak, anybody have a link confirming this? I've seen nothing official yet.

    its reported on ushr.com, which is a pay site, so i cant provide the link. it is 100% certain that dowzak is headed to kelowna. the website is very accurate and they usually break stories before most.

    Bodie is supposedly returning as an overager even though Edmonton signed him.

    Why didn't he play for the USNTDP U17 last year?

    He's only 17 so it's not like he's going to dominate the WHL or anything this year, but he should be a decent addition to the Rockets club.

    He turned down an invitation.

    That would be a relevant comment if anyone in this thread inferred he would be dominating the league this year.

    its likely he'll have the same impact as michael sauer did last year, but probably wont put up as many points.
