Two players with the Lethbridge Hurricanes of the Western Hockey League, including one from B.C., and a former Hurricanes player were injured in an incident at a party near Calgary on Saturday.

North Vancouver’s Jordy Bellerive was reportedly injured in the fire along with two others – teammate Ryan Vandervlis and Hurricanes alumnus Matt Alfaro.
