In the 25th game of his injury-plagued season, Sioux City Musketeers defenseman and Oilers' prospect Troy Hesketh finally recorded his first point. Hesketh recorded a second assist on the second goal of the game in a 6-3 win over the Lincoln Stars. A strong finish to the 2010-2011 season would be a relief for Hesketh as he has suffered through a concussion and having his scholarship to Wisconsin dropped.
Hesketh will either head to the WHL's Edmonton Oil Kings, who own his CHL rights, or find another scholarship offer. I know of at least two NCAA coaches who have reached out to Hesketh to talk about his future as an NCAA player, but those discussions were hampered by Hesketh's long recovery. Hesketh, the 71st overall pick in the 2009 draft, turns 20 in July and needs to make up some ground on his peer group and quickly.
