UW Recruiting: McGuire on loan to the EJHL

We have a couple of recruiting tidbits for you on this glorious Wednesday afternoon. 2012 forward recruit Corbin McGuire (pictured) who left his high school program at Taft Prep to spend his last two years of high school with Fargo of the USHL has been loaned to the Springfield Pics of the Eastern Junior Hockey League.

McGuire was recently on the 45 day IR with a concussion. In an e-mail last night McGuire told me that this is a bit of a tune up. "I'm on loan by Fargo so I can get back into game shape." There is no word on how long he will be in Springfield, but he mentioned it might not be long. "I can be called back to Fargo at any time if need be. "

McGuire had been out since November 12th with the concussion. He played in his first game last night for Springfield but was held off the score sheet. Springfield plays it's next game this afternoon against the Capital District Selects.

Hesketh traded from Chicago to Sioux City

In another interesting move, 2011 defense recruit Troy Hesketh has been traded from the Chicago Steel to the Sioux City Musketeers. If you're counting at home, that's the second time this year that Hesketh has been traded. Just days before the season opener, Hesketh was traded from Fargo to Chicago.

It's hard to judge how a defenseman is playing just by looking at his statistics. Although through 22 games Hesketh had not recorded a point and was a -12.

Obviously Hesketh is still plenty talented and Sioux City thinks a change of scenery may be the best thing for Troy. According to Hockey In Wisconsin, Sioux City gave up a draft pick to acquire Hesketh.
