Quote: 'I made the decision early in this year to completely go with a youth movement,' owner Jim Goldsmith says. 'It's not to be blamed on Mike (Williamson) or Ken (Hodge).'
Tribune player of the week: Colton Sceviour sparked the Hawks in a 3-0 loss at Spokane, returning after missing 23 games (broken foot). The 17-year-old center nearly assisted on a goal on his second shift. March will be important for Sceviour to impress NHL scouts before the draft.
