Bertaggia, Schenn Score - No Pickard

Sorry to disappoint everyone that was visiting the blog today, looking for information on the big Calvin Pickard trade.

If I've learned anything in the 19 years of broadcasting the Wheat Kings it's that most rumours are just that, rumours.

Anyways, a quick update for today. Alessio Bertaggia scored a goal in Switzerland's 4-3 win over Denmark this afternoon at the World Junior Hockey Championship in Calgary -- his first of the tournament. I think he was pretty happy -- what do you think?

Bertaggia also set up the overtime winner by Tanner Richard and now has one goal and four points in five games at the tournament.  The Swiss win guarantees them at least eighth-place and a spot in the 2013 World Junior Hockey Championship in Ufa, Russia.

Meanwhile, former Wheat Kings' captain Brayden Schenn scored his first career NHL goal in this afternoon's NHL Winter Classic between the Flyers and New York Rangers in Philadelphia.  Congrats to him.
