THE MacBETH REPORT:
F Frantisek Mrazek (Red Deer, 1997-99) signed a one-year contract with Heilbronner Falken (Germany, DEL2). He had 18 goals and 10 assists in 44 games with Landshut (Germany, 2. Bundesliga) last season. 2. Bundesliga now is known as DEL2 effective this season. Die Falken open their regular season against Landshut on Friday at Heilbronn.
Interesting goings-on in Sudbury where the OHL’s Wolves announced that Northern Life, a twice-a-week publication, has become the team’s “official newspaper.” . . . Blaine Smith, the Wolves’ president and general manager, was quoted as saying that Northern Life “understands the importance of supporting the local OHL team by providing professional editorial coverage that assists in building our brand in the community and throughout the OHL.” . . . The fish are in the barrel and Peter Ruicci of the Sault Star doesn’t miss with his column right here.
The SJHL, which earlier found corporate sponsorship (Kramer Ltd. Group) for one of its division, now has done it with another. The Viterra Division will comprise the Estevan Bruins, Melville Millionaires, Yorkton Terriers and Weyburn Red Wings. . . . Viterra has long been in the grain-handling and marketing business. . . . The SJHL’s regular season begins Thursday with Melville in Estevan.
