Walker inducted into Baseball Hall of Fame
Larry Walker's HoF baseball career doesn't happen if the Regina Pats don't cut him in back to back years.
Does Bob Strumm get a thank-you in Walker's Cooperstown speech? 😂
— Alan Caldwell (@smallatlarge) January 22, 2020
Larry Walker was inducted into baseball’s Hall of Fame on Tuesday in his final year of eligibility. Walker’s Hall of Fame career may never have happened if he wasn’t cut twice by the WHL’s Regina Pats in the mid-1980s. Walker’s failed attempts to crack the WHL as a goaltender between the pipes would set off a chain of events that sent him into the batter’s box with the Montreal Expos.

–Kyle Topping and Sean Comrie near returning to the lineup as they are now day-to-day. Liam Kindree went from four weeks out to 10 weeks after his surgery.
-Defenseman Joe Arnstsen is officially out week-to-week after suffering an injury over the weekend. Brett Davis is listed as out week-to-week and fellow forward Dino Kambeitz went from day-to-day to week-to-week with his lower-body injury. Zack Stringer was out with an illness over the weekend but is not on the report so he must be ready to return.
Medicine Hat Tigers:
-The indefinitely out for forward Elijah Brown has been changed to 2-to-3 weeks.
Moose Jaw Warriors:
-Overage defenseman Carson Sass missed Saturday’s game and is now officially out 1-to-2 weeks with a lower-body injury.
Prince George Cougars:

Red Deer Rebels:
-Defenseman Chase Leslie, who was hurt on Friday, is out week-to-week with an upper-body injury.

-Goalie Blake Lyda is officially listed as out day-to-day with an upper-body injury he suffered at practice last week.
-Defenseman Bobby Russell missed Saturday’s game against Regina and is now listed as out day-to-day with an upper-body injury.
Swift Current Broncos:
-Officially sent forward Caleb Wyrostok back to NAX Prep of the CSSHL. He has been off the roster since Saturday. Their blue line has been decimated by injury. Alex Moar and Garrett Sambrook played on Friday and not Saturday. Moar is out week-to-week and Sambrook is day-to-day. Parker Hendren played in both games but is listed as out day-to-day with a lower-body ailment. If Moar or Sambrook cannot go by Wednesday, they may need to call up either Billy Sowa or Devin Aubin or go with five defensemen. Both of them are currently playing for teams based in Alberta.
-Goalie Talyn Boyko is listed as out “TBD” with a lower-body injury. If he cannot play by Friday, that leaves the Americans with just one signed and healthy goalie in Mason Dunsford. Listed goalie Ronin Geraghty was added to the roster but we do not have him signed in our records. We are awaiting confirmation from the team regarding this but it is our belief he is with the team as an emergency backup.
Connor Bouchard was scratched Saturday and is now listed as out “TBD” with an upper-body injury. Defenseman Carson Haynes was returned to Lethbridge of the AMHL after making his WHL debut Saturday.
-Forward Krz Plummer, who was hurt on Saturday, is out indefinitely with a lower-body injury.
-16-year-old forward Trent Crane has been picked up from the OCN Blizzard of the MJHL. 19-year-old defenseman Ty Ettinger has been sent to Sherwood Park of the AJHL. Three players who were out parts or all of last weekend were officially listed. Kaid Oliver missed Saturday and is listed as day-to-day with an upper-body injury. Sean Gulka, who also missed Saturday, is week-to-week with an upper-body ailment and goalie Shane Farkas is day-to-day with an upper-body injury. Keegan Maddocks was reassigned to Delta Prep though so maybe he is close to returning as Adam Evanoff is the only other goalie on the roster.
