Kamloops Blazers' Cole Ully to sit for two

The Kamloops Blazers will have to make do without the services of forward Cole Ully this weekend.

Ully, 18, was suspended for two games by the WHL on Tuesday for a checking from behind major he took in Saturday’s 3-1 loss to the Cougars in Prince George.

He will sit out both of the Blazers’ home games this weekend — they are to play host to the Victoria Royals on Friday and the Cougars on Saturday. Both games, at Interior Saving Centre, will start at 7 p.m.

Ully was given the major for checking from behind and a game misconduct with 12:49 remaining in the Saturday game. It was the first game misconduct of his career, and only the second major — he was involved in a fight with Ayrton Nikkel of the Everett Silvertips in January.

This is the first suspension of Ully’s career, but the Blazers’ second of 2013-14. Forward Devin Oakes was suspended three games for a check to the head in a Sept. 6 preseason game against the Kelowna Rockets. Oakes missed two preseason games along with the first game of the regular season.

Through four games this season, Ully, a Dallas Stars draft pick, has a team-high three goals, including two in a 5-2 victory over the host Cougars on Saturday. He will be eligible to return on Tuesday, when the Tri-City Americans pay a visit to ISC.
