Because of coach issues. Hard to believe he hasn't been traded for by another Jr A team, very hard to believe he would return to the Colts.
"Discussion are on going with the Seadogs "for this year,that would not effect the Colts decision to move him done to Jr B if they found there true number one , the third goalie in the mix with Jenkins and Edwardson ,has played well against the tougher teams. Can't see him not remaining with the Colts with the talent he has displayed so far, unless Jr A politics rear there ugly head!!!
There are no politics in Jr. A hockey. It is all business and the teams are privately owned and financed. And for $140,000 you can buy the Kanata Stallions. You will also need $100,000 per year to fund losses. Then you can install any player and goalie on your roster your little Speedy heart desires. No politics whatsoever.

From a pure business perspective, why wouldn't an owner develop a local player with potential ? In IM's world the back-up goalie plays 10 games behind. "Their true number one". A "rock star" will be difficult to find at this time of year.

Why would a team pay billet fees and other costs when you have a decent back-up in your roster.

That makes no business or hockey sense to do otherwise.
