Derek Lee now a Grizzly

Derek Lee will be entering his last season in the BCHL this Fall, but not w/ the Salmon Arm Silverbacks (thanks to Todd at TCT for the info). Derek was traded to the Victoria Grizzlies and will play this season for the host of the 2009 RBC Cup, meaning his team automatically qualifies for this national tournament. Derek had 77 points in 52 games last season w/ the Silverbacks.

Nice quote from Derek: "I get to play in a national championship and then go to play NCAA hockey at a really good school that gets up to 15,000 fans at home games."

Good luck to Derek on his new team!
