"The 21-year-old from Edmonton, AB, finished third on the team and 15th among all WHL defensemen in scoring with 48 points, including a career-high 12 goals, in 68 games this season, and helped hold together a Rebels’ blue line that was decimated by injuries over the course of the season."
A little more from the WHL above, including all of the league's winners; Petrovic is currently playing with the AHL's San Antonio Rampage.
From BTN's Neate Sager:
Make what you will of a report (Josh) Birkholz, 19, who was facing a suspension at Minnesota for violating team rules, "allegedly failed multiple drug tests this summer." That means he is going to the WHL with some questions about character, which the Silvertips would surely have heard about (...) It's not something any firm conclusions can be drawn from. No one is so naive to think 19-year-old elite hockey players are exempt from youthful indiscretions; just look at what happened at Notre Dame recently. The main point of mentioning it is to pass on word of an element of the story that might have been underplayed in WHL circles(.)
Birkholz, 19, was Florida's third round pick in 2009 (acquired in the Bouwmeester trade from CGY). More above, with links.
Update: Clarification from Birkholz regarding the matter.
A second-round pick by FLA in 2008, Robak compiled 66 points (16 goals) in 71 games for Brandon (WHL) in 2009-10. Slick stuff for a D-man.
