The NHL’s Vegas Golden Knights on Wednesday re-assigned defenceman Kaedan Korczak back to the Kelowna Rockets.
Korczak played in all 68 games for Kelowna last season. He set career highs in assists (29) and points (33).
The Golden Knights drafted Korczak No. 41 overall during the second round of 2019 NHL Entry Draft.
Kelowna also welcomed defenceman Sean Comrie into the fold this week. The Edmonton native was auditioning with the Philadelphia Flyers on an amateur tryout.
The six-foot-one, 170-pound Comrie scored a goal against the New York Islander rookies and advanced to their main camp.
Kelowna acquired Comrie’s rights from the Brandon Wheat Kings during the 2019 WHL Bantam Draft.
He played for the University of Denver this past season where he had an assist in 18 games with the Pioneers.
Nolan Foote is now the lone Rocket away at an NHL training camp, and was to make his preseason debut Wednesday night with the Tampa Bay Lightning against the Carolina Hurricanes.
The Rockets are to open their Memorial Cup season Saturday against the Spokane Chiefs. The home opener will also be the Canadian Cancer Society Pink in the Rink game.
