Grayson, Rosback on move

Port Hardy’s Lucas Grayson, who broke into the Western Hockey League as a 16-year-old with the Red Deer Rebels, was traded last month to the league’s Everett Silvertips.

Grayson, a 6-foot, 175-pound defenseman, has played in 11 games for the Silvertips and has yet to get on the scoresheet.

Port McNeill defenseman Thor Rosback, another Eagles alumnus, has also broken into junior hockey as the youngest member of the Victoria Cougars of the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League.

Rosback, 16, has one assist and six penalty minutes in 14 games for the Cougars.
