Pretty much everyone knew it, and now the CFL is coming down on the Edmonton Eskimos for the Odell Willis signing.
When CFL free agency opened on February 15th, it didn't take long, four minutes actually, for the Eskimos to announce they signed the free agent defensive end. A suspiciously quick period of time for an entire pro-sports contract to come together and be signed, not mention to put together a media release complete with quotes.
Saskatoon Blades forward Josh Nicholls is NHL-bound next season after signing a three-year entry-level deal with the New York Rangers on Tuesday.
The 20-year-old Tsawwassen, B.C., native has played in Saskatoon for the past five seasons, and with 2012-2013 being his last eligible year, Nicholls said the weight on his shoulder to find a place to play next year has disappeared.
"It's great to get that deal done for myself and for my family, but the focus is still on this season and winning a WHL Championship and a Memorial Cup," said Nicholls.
The Saskatoon Blades might have had too much on their minds coming into Tuesday's contest with the Calgary Hitmen. Before the game Josh Nicholls was honoured for reaching 300 points in his WHL career. Blades coach and general manager Lorne Molleken was also honoured for recording his 600th career win in the WHL.
The Saskatoon Blades (41-22-1-3) found themselves on the wrong side of a seven-goal first period and they couldn't recover, as the Calgary Hitmen (41-20-1-4) downed the Memorial Cup hosts 9-5.
