This Is Your "News About Colton Jobke" Leader...

In what may be one of the only times we'll ever highlight a news nugget about Colton Jobke, it appears that he, a defenseman for the Regina Pats, is caught in the middle of the trickle down effect of the NHL Lockout.

yeah, this guy.

Last week NHL teams sent roughly 6 quadrillion players down to their American Hockey League Affiliates so they would have a place to play- remember in 2004 Minnesota sent Brent Burns, Pierre-Marc Bouchard, and Mikko Koivu to Houston- and Jobke was amongst the 20-something 20-somethings assigned to The Aeros.

Well, because of that...he can't suit up and play for Regina during Western League play. He's not the only player in that sort of limbo, although his situation is AHL-specific; Neate Seger of Buzzing The Net has been detailing the situations that Major Junior teams will be dealing with in terms of whether or not their NHL drafted players on roster will actually play for them this year. Signed as a CHL free agent in 2010, Jobke has quietly taken part in Prospect Camps and The Traverse City Prospect Tournament ever since.

There is a chance he'll return to Regina, but he could very well find himself a spot with The Aeros.
