Idaho Steelheads land two players from ex-coach

Defenseman Cole Martin, 21, and forward Chance Braid, 20, have joined Idaho’s roster from the Kelowna (B.C.) Rockets of the Western Hockey League, coach Neil Graham announced Tuesday.

Graham was promoted from assistant coach to head coach earlier this month after Brad Ralph left for Kelowna.

Martin and Braid helped the Rockets last season to a WHL championship and a runner-up finish in the Memorial Cup.
