London trainer Don Brankley penning memoirs...

Prince Albert's Mike Small finding his WHL legs (I guess they were buried in the front hall closet or something)...

Poor ice condition halts OHL game (gee, can't Canadians make ice, or are we blaming global warming?)...

Foligno says the Wolves aren’t sellers yet (and squashes rumours on a Self deal)...

Tyrell claws his way into leading role with Prince George Cougars...

Guelph Storm leading scorer Tomas Marcinko may be gone a month...
