Royals hope to gain from this season's pain 03 Mar 12

Don’t look for a stand-pat roster just because the Victoria Royals return all but two graduating 20-year-old players for the 2012-13 Western Hockey League season.

“The biggest thing you don’t want is to have complacency set in,” warned GM and head coach Marc Habscheid.

“There is nobody automatic on the team. Our list [each WHL team can protect 50 players] is such that we have good players coming in . . . including 21 forwards for 13 spots.”
