  Nejezchleb, who would be a 20-year old next season, would be forced to sit the first two games of the 2014-2015 WHL regular season should he return to the Wheat Kings (or another WHL team).

  Meanwhile, the Victoria Royals were hit hard by the WHL, with the team fined $10,000 and players Steven Hodges and Brandon Magee suspended for five and 12 games respectively.

  The fine and suspensions stem from incidents in from the fifth and final game of Victoria's Western Conference semifinal series loss to the Portland Winterhawks.

  Kootenay Ice coach Ryan McGill has also been fined $500 after being tossed late in Game Six Monday of their Eastern Conference semifinal series with Medicine Hat.
