The Blues announced that they have reduced their roster today, sending back three prospects to their respective junior teams.
Cody Beach, forward, was sent back to his junior team in the Western Hockey League, the Moose Jaw Warriors. Beach is expected to be a top six forward for Moose Jaw who plays a gritty, tough-mans game.
Brock Buekeboom is headed back to his Ontario Hockey League team, the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds. Buekeboom is more of a shutdown defensemen who has limited offensive upside to his game. He’s expected to be a top four defender for the Greyhounds.
Lastly, goaltender Jordan Binnington is headed back to the OHL to return to his junior team, the Owen Sound Attack. Binnington was named top goaltender in the Memorial Championships last season and is set to be the starter for Owen Sound this season.
