Blomqvist Back, Hicketts Signs

The Victoria Royals roster got a boost this week as three players were returned from NHL Main Camps.

Royals 19 year old forward Axel Blomqvist was returned from the NHL Winnipeg Jets to Victoria.

Defenseman Joe Hicketts signed a 3 year entry level contract with the NHL Detroit Red Wings after attending camp as a free agent.

20 year old forward Brandon Magee was returned by Calgary but faces a 12 game suspension.

Only forward Austin Carroll (team leading 34 goals last season) and 6’6 250 lb defenseman Keegan Kanzig are still away at NHL camps, both with the Flames.
