Hurricanes Reassign (D) Lenchyshyn & (F) Goberis

The Lethbridge Hurricanes announced Tuesday the reassignment of Defenceman Thomas Lenchyshyn and Forward Zach Goberis.

Lenchyshyn, 16, was the Hurricanes 1st round, 18th overall pick in the 2012 Bantam draft. The Steinbach, MB blueliner had 9 points (1G, 8A) and 91 PIMs with the Eastman Selects of the MAAAHL last season. In one preseason game played with the Hurricanes, Lenchyshyn notched two penalty minutes.

Goberis, also 16, played in two preseason games with the ‘Canes and notched one assist with the team. Goberis hails from Arvada, CO and had 65 points (24G, 41 A) and 56 PIMs with the Colorado Thunderbirds U-16 AAA last season. Goberis was picked by the ‘Canes in the 4th round, 87th overall in the 2012 Bantam draft.

The releasing of Lenchyshyn and Goberis leaves the ‘Canes with 28 players remaining on the roster. Of the 28 players, three goalies (Corbin Boes, Jonny Hogue and Chris Tai) remain fighting for a spot, as well as 16 forwards and 9 defenceman.

The remaining roster players will continue with the preseason schedule Wednesday, September 11th, when the ‘Canes take on the Medicine Hat Tigers at the ENMAX Centre at 7:00 p.m. Tickets for the game cost $10.00, with children six and under getting in for FREE. Full proceeds from the ticket sales are going towards Lethbridge Minor Hockey. Tickets for the game will be sold on a CASH ONLY basis at the Northwest entrance of the arena.
