Former Niagara first round pick Brook Hiddink has skated at the Storm practice the past two days.
The free agent was released by the Plymouth Whalers at the end of training camp this year. Hiddink, a 5'11", 195 pound winger, had two goals and 18 assists in 45 games last season split between Niagara and Plymouth.
Mike Kelly said he hopes Hiddink will stick around and practice through next week so the team can make a better assessment. Other teams are apparently interested in him.
James MacEwan (ankle), Tyler Boston (upper body), Ben Harpur (knee) and Matt Hotchkiss (under-17 tournament) are all unavailable this weekend.
Sixth round pick Luke Burghardt has been called up from the Pickering Raiders major midgets, where he is lighting it up for a team that has gone 25-0 to start the season in league and tournament play.
