2008-2009 Roster Update, IV

Jordie Berk has apparently decided to finish off this season playing junior A hockey. Jordie's rights were traded from Salmon Arm (BCHL) to Ft. McMurray (Alberta JHL) today. Jordie is the second Big Red player to return to the junior ranks this year, following Jacob Johnston (Camrose/ Alberta JHL).

Next year's roster currently projects to 26 -- 15 forwards, 8 defensemen, and 3 goalies -- assuming there are no early departures. That would lead one to expect Cornell to add another blueliner and a goalie to next fall's class. It is unknown whether Jacob or Jordie have any intention of returning to school in the fall. If neither plans on returning, it's possible that Jarred Seymour could be brought in a year early to fill out the defensive spot. Of course, the staff could choose to move in a new direction.
