Aside from Danville making two very solid signings in the hockey playing department, here's a look at the 5th column guys:
: BCHL product, rang up 259 PIMs in three seasons between Victoria and Cowichan Valley. 9 WHL scraps in Kelowna in 09/10 and an impressive 16 for Arizona (CHL) last season. Looks to be a LHW at just 6' 1" but solid fight card with some real big boys for the kid.
Notables: Aaron Boogaard
(x3), RJ Hand, Erick Lizon, Jason Kostadine (x2), David Simoes (x2), David Starenky, Randy McNaught (x2), Cam Abney, Taylor Jordan
Brandon Burlingame: Not much out there on this kid but he's 22 years old, from Boring, Oregon and put up 340 PIM in 152 games in the NORPAC for Vancouver and Northern Oregon. Couldn't hurt to have him around
Peter Cintala: As Marc LeFebvre continues to assemble the Chiefs, he brought in some Euro flavor and possibly (?) a gritty one. Three 100+ PIM seasons in U20 Czech and Slovak leagues, as well as one in Slovakia's 2nd division. Spent the last two seasons in France and either calmed down a bit or played with refs that let stuff go, the gaudy PIMs by Euro standards make him noteworthy. Pretty decent point production as well, it'll be interesting should Cintala stick.
