    It is now next year. The Bisons' first recruiting news comes about a month earlier than it did last year. The first three recruits seem of a high enough calibre. However, last year's team had just 7 defencemen and once injuries struck the team was short-staffed for many games. Therefore, my view is that it will be the calibre of blue line recruits which will tell us what level of team to expect. Note that ALL of the 2015-16 roster is eligible to return. So even one good defenceman may be enough.

    Nick Zajac - LW/C - Saskatoon (WHL)

    - Zajac hales from Headingley and has good bloodlines. He is coming off a 20-goal season in the Dub, where he was captain of the Blades. He is listed as 5'10" and 180 lbs. Maybe he could catch on playing the wing with Shaq Merasty, or if they concentrate their top 3 on one line, he could even centre his own line.

    Quintin Lisoway - C/LW - Brandon (WHL), Steinbach (MJHL), Acadie-Bathurst (QMJHL)

    - Lisoway is from Neepawa and started out with the Natives in the MJHL. He then went to the Wheaties in the Dub, and went back and forth from there to Steinbach. In 2015-16 he had stints with Steinbach and Brandon, before settling in with Acadie-Bathurst in the Q to finish his junior career. He is 5'10" and 194 lbs. He was able to score well in the MJHL, with 18 goals in 27 games. In the Q and the Dub he seemed to be thought of us a useful player but not a high goal-scorer.

    Kamerin Nault - F - Winnipeg (MJHL)

    - Nault is a Winnipegger who started with Garden City in high school hockey before going to the Blues for four seasons. He is coming off 37 goals in 54 games. At 6'2" he weighs only 160 lbs. I guess he could use a good buffet and some weight training from the Bison training staff.

    The Bisons have not announced any new commitments from players, but they have added an assistant coach. Ryan Bonni, former coach at River East in the MMJHL and a former NHLer, joined the staff. Returnng assistants are Steve Christie, Tyler Dittmer, Riley Dudar, and Devin Himpe.

    REMI LAURENCELLE - LW/C - Everett (0WHL)

    - Laurencelle fits the Bison profile in many ways - a local boy who headed west to play major junior, wore a letter, and is coming home for his university. Of note, after a slow start to hs major junior career he is coming off seasons of 23 and 28 goals. This past season he also scored 4 goals in 9 playoff games. Unless the Bisons lose all their best returnees, they should have an incredible group of forwards. But with only 7 defencemen on last year's roster, they now need some blueline signings. He also had scraps with current Jets Adam Lowry and Nic Petan. At 5'10" and 17 years old the Lowry fight was a mismatch. See the links!

    New Schedule



    The new Bison schedule has been released and includes a complete list of 9 exhibition games against teams from 4 different leagues. Here is the exhibition schedule:

    Fri Sep 09 Jamestown at Manitoba 7:30 pm
    Sat Sep 10 Jamestown at Manitoba 7:30 pm
    Fri Sep 16 Manitoba v Calgary at Regina 8:00 pm
    Sat Sep 17 Manitoba v Saskatchewan at Regina 1:00 pm
    Fri Sep 23 Regina at Manitoba 7:00 pm
    Sat Sep 24 Regina at Manitoba 1:00 pm
    Wed Oct 05 Manitoba at Manitoba Moose time TBA
    Fri Oct 07 Manitoba at Lakehead 6:00 pm
    Sat Oct 08 Manitoba at Lakehead 6:00 pm

    The regular season home opener weekend is October 14th and 15th against the Mount Royal Cougars, Friday at 7:00 and Saturday at 1:00. The trend to Saturday afternoon games continues with 4 of their 7 series featuring a Saturday matinee following a Friday night game. The other 3 series will see two games at 7:00 and one moved back to 7:30.

    Across the CW, Lethbridge is the only team without a schedule story, and Regina was the only other team to post their exhibition games. UBC and Saskatchewan will start the season a week earier than the rest.

    Who are the Jamestown Jimmies? They are a brand new team operating in ACHA division 1. The Bisons demolished the Iowa State Cyclones of the ACHA on November 27-28, 2009 by scores of 8-3 and 10-2. Those games were such mis-matches I actually feared for the safety of Iowa State. Jamestown has recruited from the KIJHL (Junior B) and SIJHL (Junior A). Their [Facebook Page] has recruiting announcements.

    In other sports, Jamestown plays in the Northstar Athletic Association (NSAA) but may switch to the US version of the GPAC. Both are conferences in the NAIA. Of note, the Winnipeg Wesmen baseball team also plays in the NSAA. I have hoped that the ACHA independent team at Minot State and the NJCAA teams in Williston State and Dakota-Bottineau would be used as opponents for a revived MCAC which would include the Winnipeg Wesmen and Brandon Bobcats, but that may be a pipedream.


    I find the renewal of the Battle of the Herds to be interesting. The game will be played at the MTS Iceplex. This will be the 7th game between the teams. The past results are:
    September 2002: Moose 7 Bisons 3
    September 29, 2005: Bisons 3 Moose 1
    October 4, 2005: Moose 6 Bisons 4
    September 26, 2007: Moose 7 Bisons 1
    September 30, 2008: Bisons 6, Moose 2
    September 29, 2010: Moose 2, Bisons 1

    ACAC Down a Team



    First, we bade farewell to the STU Pids of the AUS. Now, it is so long to the short-lived Keystone Huskies program from the ACAC. The school is based in Fort McMurray, Alberta and has suffered from declining enrolment and the fire.

    Keystone showed progress. The team operated for just 4 seasons and finished 7th, 8th, 6th, and 3rd.

    The ACAC is now back down to 8 teams for the upcoming 2016-17 season.

    Former coach wins Jack Adams

    Former Bison and current Capital head coach Barry Trotz was rewarded with the NHL's Jack Adams award for Coach of the Year! He last coached the Herd in 1988 before going to the AHL and then Nashville.

    There are no new schedule announcements nor any news from the Bisons. However, UBC had two recruiting announcements and Lethbridge had one. The links are loaded with pictures, stats, and even videos.

    On July 7th, UBC announced that defenceman Jerrett Smith was leaving one team of Thunderbirds for another. He captained Seattle's WHL team last year. Then on July 19th they added three more WHL grads, namely Tanner Faith (defence - Moose Jaw), Carter Popoff (forward - Vancouver), and Joseph Carvahlo (defence - Prince George).

    Meanwhile, on July 12 the Hψrny Ones made a mass announcement. They may want to dovert some school funds to the purchase of an abacus.
    After overhauling the roster prior to last season, the Pronghorn men's hockey team announced its 2016-17 recruiting class today with the addition of eight players; five forwards, three defencemen, and one goaltender.
    They should have recruited this guy:


    Here are the names from the story:

    Russ Maxwell - forward - 2 years off on a mission - former Lethbridge/Seattle WHL
    Garrett Hughson - goaltender - Spokane WHL
    Cory Millette - forward - Lethbridge WHL
    Ryan Chynoweth - left wing - Lloydminster AJHL (several AJHL and WHL tams)
    Torrin White - forward - Langley BCHL (Moose Jaw WHL)
    Connor Sanvido - right wing - STU AUS (several WHL teams)
    Ayrton Nikkel - defence - Allen ECHL (several BCHL and WHL teams)
    Clint Filbrandt - defence - Drumheller AJHL

    Both teams have what appears to be a good set of recruits. However, one always needs to ask who is returning from last year's roster. That is a lot of new names for Lethrbidge after a major shake-up last year.

    Brian Burke Talking at Sask



    The Butt Sniffers are holding a banquet on November 3rd and the speakers will be Brad May and Brian Burke. Burke will likely tell them to play with pugnacity, bellicosity, and truculence. They won't know what he's talking about. So they will go outside, pee on the building, and bark at May.

    Still no pre-season schedule for the Mutts, nor the procrastinators at Alberta, Calgary, MRU, and UBC.

    Bisons add 3 and news around the CW



    As I have mentioned, the entire Bison roster from 2015-16 was eligibl to return. So with 8 announced recruits, and 7 of those being forwards, I have to wonder which players have left school and which are coming to camp for an intense competition. Last year's roster included just 7 defencemen, so they nededd recruits there.

    Links:
    •[U of M Announcement]
    •[MJHL Announcement]
    •[MyToba.ca]


    Garrett Johnston - D - Acadie-Bathurst/Chicoutimi/Moncton (QMJHL)

    - With five previously-announced recruits up front (and two more in this release) the Bisons really needed to land a defenceman with a major junior background. He evidently has some size and takes care of his own end of the ice. Im other words, the type the team used to have more of and really needs. He is a Winnipeg boy coming home after 3 years in th QMJHL. He started with Moncton and last season was twice-traded. Seems odd for the Bisons to have two recruits from the same team in the Q. (Quinton Lisoway is the other.) He started his junior career in the MJHL for the Swan Valley Stampeders.

    Brad Bowles - C - Portage (MJHL)

    - Bowles and his twin brother are the Bisons' answer to the Sedins I guess. He comes to the Bisons off a Junior A career where he won everything available at that level, including the scoring title last year. He was also at the Calgary Flames' rookie camp last month. It is not often one sees a Junior A recruit considered to be a prime prospect but this is one. In 60 games his numbers were 45-57-102. In 13 playoff games he was 17-17-34. Over his career he has played 18 games at the RBC and WCC and has racked up 9-14-23.

    Shawn Bowles - F - Portage (MJHL)

    - Shawn does not hav quite the numbers of Brad, but it is close. He has missed more games due to injury. In 39 games he went 19-46-65, a similar PPG ratio to that of his brother.

    On September 21st the Monkeys will once again face the Greasers' Rookies. After much hype with McDavid last year, things are back to normal this year with the game being held at the Drake. The Greasers won last year but the Monkeys hold a 13-12 edge/

    In the Town of Bedrock they are losing a ton of players and have announced a recruiting class of 12. That is a major renovation. Mr. Slate must have bankrolled it. Here's the list:

    Mac Colasimone • 5'6" 150 lbs • Forward • Arts • White Rock, B.C. • Colorado (WSHL)
    Darcy DeRoose • 6'3" 194 lbs • Forward • Arts • Ceylon, Sask • Estevan (SJHL)
    TJ Dumonceaux • 5'10" 176 lbs • Forward • Arts • Kelowna, B.C. • Bentley University (NCAA)
    Braiden Doucette • 6' 181 lbs • Defense • Arts • Leduc, Alta • Canmore Eagles (AJHL)
    Logan Fisher • 6'2" 205 lbs • Forward • Arts • Red Deer, Alta • Victoria (WHL)
    Robbie Fisher • 6' 176 lbs • Defense • Arts • Kenora, ON • Wilfrid Laurier University (CIS) - Okotoks Oilers (AJHL)
    Matt Greenfield • 6'1" 185 lbs • Goalie • Business • Parkland, FL, USA • West Kelowna Warriors (BCHL)
    Luke Harrison • 6'1" 205 lbs • Forward • Arts • Kelowna, B.C. • Prince George Cougars (WHL)
    Jared Hauf • 6'5" 223 lbs • Defence • Open Studies • Calgary, Alta • Seattle (WHL)
    Riley Roberts • 6'1" 181 lbs • Forward • Arts • Essex, ON • Colorado (WSHL)
    Brayden Sherbinin • 6'1" 185 lbs • Defense • Open Studies • Kelowna, B.C. • Quinnipiac University (NCAA)
    Coleman Vollrath • 6' 170 lbs • Goalie • Arts • Calgary, Alta • Victoria (WHL)

    This recruiting class would be great in th OUA but in the CW it looks sub-par. There are some good players here but they are not (on paper at least) as good as the ones departing.

    UQTR is now 2-0 in a round-robin tournament. Also at 2-0 are the Nottingham Panthers, the defending champion of the EIHL, the "big leagues" in the British Isles. Kassel is in the DEL2, which is Germany's 2nd tier league. The Bisons have played teams from that league in their tours of Europe.

    On Sunday, the tournament wraps up with games between Nottingham v UQTR and Amiens v Kassel.

    One note: Due to the hot weather at this time of year the first 3 games of the tournament had to be played in a smaller secondary arena.

    BTW, the scores of the Napoleon Cup games nor incolving UQTR are as follows:

    Aug 26: Nottingham 3, Kassel 0
    Aug 27: Nottingham 5, Amiens 3

    FYI Nottingham is not EIHL champions but playoffs champions. In UK, winning the regular season is more prestigious than the playoffs. You can see it in the set up. After a 52-game regular sesaon, post-season action comprises home-and-away quater-finals followed by a Final Four tournament. It's more like a big familly party to finish the year. Regular season champs Sheffield Steelers is the one getting the CHL spot for Britain while Nottingham will play Continental Cup. I'm not taking anything away from the Panthers, it's just the way British hockey is organized. And I really wish them to reach Continental Cup finals.

    Despite the loss, UQTR must consider their European sojourn to have been a success. They were 3-1-0 and will bring home some hardware.

    There are no hockey games in the CIS on the Labour Day weekend. We are now less than 9 days away from the first Bison game.

    Preview: Sept 9-10: Jamestown at Bisons


    `
    JAMESTOWN JIMMIES (0-0-0)
    MANITOBA BISONS (0-0-0)

    Friday, September 9th, 7:30 CDT @ Wayne Fleming Arena
    Saturday, September 10th, 7:30 CDT @ Wayne Fleming Arena

    • [LeagueStat Bison Roster Page]
    • [Elite Prospects Bison Page]
    • [Jamestown Team Site]
    • [Jamestown Facebook Page]

    We are just a day away from the start of the season. At this stage it is hard to do much of a preview because the Bisons have yet to upload a roster page for this year. One good reason is that the season is starting a week earlier than usual. Also, the training camp roster usually undergoes updates as players are added and deleted.

    However, I found a useful link at Elite Prospects. Here is what I found. On this list, "confirmed" is with respect to the Elite Prospects list.

    Goaltenders

    Confirmed returnees (3)
    Justin Paulic
    Byron Spriggs
    Dasan Sydora

    Defencemen

    Confirmed returnees (4)

    Confirmed recruits (1)
    Garrett Johnston

    Unconfirmed returnees (3)
    Sean Christensen
    Luke Paulsen
    Brock Sutherland

    Forwards

    Confirmed returnees (8)
    Justin Augert
    Liam Bilton
    Brett Brooks
    Warren Callis
    Brett Dudar (returning from 2014-15)
    Jesse Paradis
    Joel Schreyer
    Jonah Wasylak

    Confirmed recruits (7)
    Brad Bowles
    Shawn Bowles
    Hudson Friesen
    Remi Laurencelle
    Quintin Lisoway
    Kamerin Nault
    Nick Zajac

    Unconfirmed returnees (8)
    Jordyn Boyd
    Dustin Bruyere
    Jordan DePape
    Dylan Kelly
    Shaq Merasty
    Chris Stockl
    Brett Stovin
    Zach Waldvogel

    The top 3 scorers from 2015-16 (Merasty, DePape, and Stovin) are "unconfirmed". There are already 15 forwards on the list. Like I always say, you cannot evaluate the quality of a recruiting class until you see who is eligible to return but is not returning.

    Also, I have nothing to say about Jamestown. This is the first season for the program so Friday night's debut will go down in their history as a momentous occasion.

    AROUND THE CIS


    - Former Monkey and Jets' prospect Levko Koper has signed an AHL contract with the Charlotte Checkers.

    Link:

    • [U of A Story]



    - After only one season, the Birdies have parted company with coach Adam Shell. His replacment is former assistant Sven Butenschon. The linked story says about as little as possible. Butenschon is a former Wheatie and has many years of pro experience in the NHL, AHL, and Europe.

    Link:

    • [UBC Story]



    - Laurentian and Nipissing have created a multi-sport challenge event which they hope will fan the flames of rivalry. This is reminiscent of the Winnipeg v Manitoba Dickworth Challenge and the Crowchild Classic between Calgary and Mount Royal. This one is being dubbed the 705 Challenge Cup.

    Another recruit?



    Reid Zalitech - D - Moose Jaw (WHL)

    - A right-handed defenceman with WHL experience would be an asset. But is he playing? Is he playable? I came across his name at Elite Prospects. They linked to a story from almost a year ago in the Moose Jaw Times.
    Zalitach played 65 games in two seasons with the Warriors. He was acquired from Vancouver for a fourth round pick in 2015 and a third rounder in 2016.

    "Reid re-injured his knee during the week," Millar said. "He has played for the past while with some chronic pain in his knee and he just feels he can't continue to do so. It's been a real challenge for him. He's going to move on with his life as well and is looking at going to the University of Manitoba in the beginning of January."

    Zalitach had previously torn his MCL and also had a patellar dislocation in his knee during his career.
    We'll see.

    Sept 9: Bisons Coast In Jimmies' Franchise Debut


    JAMESTOWN JIMMIES 0
    MANITOBA BISONS 6

    Links:
    • [U of M Schedule/Results]


    It is always nice to get out to hockey for the dirst time in late summer. The crowd was small, yet more than I anticipated due to the Goldeyes having a hom game and TV featuring the Red Sox v Blue Jays and the World Cup exhibition game.

    The game was also significant in that the Jamestown team was playing their first ever game. Will this lead to bigger and better things? Time will tell. Althoufh they looked sharp in their bright orange jerseys, they were in way iver their heads. One can safely say the score flattered them.

    I have thus far not seen a game report and summary. The Bisons held period leads of 3-0 and 5-0. The shots be period were 15-3, 17-2, and 9-5. Justin Paulic shared the shut-out with Dasan Sydora. Goals were scored by Justin Augert, Jesse Paradis, Brett Stovin, Dylan Kelly, Joel Schreyer, and Jordan DePape.

    There was a vast difference betweem the teams. I don't believe that Jamestown had consecutive shots in the game. There were only maybe 1 or 2 faceoffs per period in the Bison end. Of the 10 official shots only 2 or 3 actually required effort.

    My vision is not good at present so I could not jot down the alignment. I got help from my son for the Bisons and got this:

    Goal
    1 Paulic - 34 Sydora

    Defence
    5 L Christensen - 9 Hunter
    3 S Christensen - 5 Brescani
    20 Johnston - 2 Henry

    Forwards
    16 Paradis - 28 Stovin - 27 DePape
    18 Kelly - 25 Merasty - 29 Wasylak
    8 Bilton - 11 Laurencelle - 24 Augert
    21 Brooks - 17 Callis - 23 Schreyer

    Scratches
    G 35 Spriggs
    D 6 Heinrich
    F 10 Dudar - 12 Zajac - 14 Nault
    F 15 S Bowles - 19 Friesen - 22 B Bwles
    F 26 Lisoway - 30 Stagg

    So 20 forwards are trying out for the team, and just 7 defencemen. I remember one season when they kept 10 defencemen and 14 forwards, and played many games with 2 or 3 d-men playing forward. It is mucj harder to do the reverse.

    One notable absence from the roster is defenceman and former #12 Brock Sutherland. He could have been back for a 5th year but likely graduated after 4 years and has moved on. There were also two new names not previously announced as recruits.

    Blake Heinrich - D - Portland (WHL)

    - This Minnesota boy played two full seasons with the Sioux City Musketeers of the USHL then went to the Portland Winterhawks in the Dub. He had been a recruit for UMD but then switched to the major junior route.

    Links:
    Stats: [Elite Prospects] : [Hockey DB]
    Profiles: [HF]
    Story: [Portland recruitment]


    Daniel Stagg - F - Cochrane (NOJHL)

    - He played a mix of Junior A and B hockey before being recruited by Portage College last year. However he did not play at all in 2015-16. Looks like a walk-o.

    Sept 10: Herd Sweeps, so does CW


    JAMESTOWN JIMMIES 0
    MANITOBA BISONS 9

    • [U of M Schedule/Results]
    • [U of M Twitter]


    The Jimminies came out with some intensity, giving it a literal "college try" after their Friday night debacle. For one period, it worked to an extent. The Bisons came out trampling them but on a PP the Jimmies actually carried the play and had scoring chances. However, the Bisons got goals from Channing Bresciani and Remi Laurencelle (on a fabulous breakaway) and outshot them 12-5.

    In the 2nd period, Byron Spriggs replaced Dasan Sydora in the Bison goal. This gave each goaltender 2 periods on the weekend. It seemed that the 1st period physicality wore out the Jimmies. They were gassed and the Bisons piled on 4 goals and outshot them 15-2. Goals came from Shawn Bowles, Liam Bilton, Justin Augert, and Brett Dudar. Dudar's was on a nice passing play where he was left to put the icing on the cake.

    The 3rd period was more of the same. I believe that the shots were 14-3, for 41-10 on the night. The Bison goals were scored by three newcomers: Hudson Friesen, Quintin Lisoway, and Daniel Stagg (into an empty net!). Of note, Lisoway switched from #26 to #23 (taking Schreyer's jersey) and Stagg switched from #30 to #29 (Wasylak's jersey). Friesen's goal was the end of a nice passing play with his linemates, Laurencelle and Augert. Incidentally, that line were also the 3 stars.

    Another interesting tidbit: No Bison scored twice in either game. Only one (Augert) scored in both. He was the only player to score on Friday and dress on Saturday.

    A couple of players wore a different number than was listed on the line-up sheet. So these alignments may not be 100% accurate.

    Goal
    34 Sydora - 35 Spriggs

    Defence
    5 L Christensen - 9 Hunter
    3 S Christensen - 4 Brescani
    20 Johnston - 2 Henry

    Forwards
    19 Friesen - 11 Laurencelle - 24 Augert
    12 Zajac - 17 Callis - 8 Bilton
    15 S Bowles - 22 B Bowles - 10 Dudar
    23 Lisoway - 21 Brooks - 29 Stagg

    Scratches
    G 1 Paulic
    D 6 Heinrich
    F 14 Nault - 16 Paradis - 18 Kelly
    F 23 Schreyer - 25 Merasty - 27 DePape
    F 28 Stovin - 29 Wasylak

    I did not see a 6 or 14 out there. So if Heinrich of Nault drew into the lineup it was in a different jersey number.

    The game report has lots of pictures but no stats. It seems there was a lot of pushing and shoving. The Birdies should be able to whip The Clown. Maybe their goalie kept it close. It was the opener for both.

    The Monkeys completed the CW's sweep of the Tier II ranks. However, NAIT is a legit CW-level team. They dominated the ACAC last year, going 36-0, including playoffs. They won a number of games against CW teams, including the Brick Invitational Tournament. So the Monkeys have to be happy with this win in the Athabasca tournament finale.

    There are no preview stories as I post. And the roster page is stuck in 2015-16. But here are the players from h weekend line-up card:

    Goaltenders

    Justin Paulic
    Byron Spriggs
    Dasan Sydora

    Defencemen

    Channing Bresciani
    Lee Christensen
    Sean Christensen
    Adam Henry
    Rene Hunter
    *Garrett Johnston
    *Blake Heinrich

    Forwards

    Justin Augert
    Liam Bilton
    Brett Brooks
    Warren Callis
    Jordan DePape
    Brett Dudar
    Dylan Kelly
    Shaq Merasty
    Jesse Paradis
    Joel Schreyer
    Brett Stovin
    Jonah Wasylak
    *Brad Bowles
    *Shawn Bowles
    *Hudson Friesen
    *Remi Laurencelle
    *Quintin Lisoway
    *Kamerin Nault
    *Daniel Stagg
    *Nick Zajac

    *indicates 1st year player

    All players except Heinrich played at least once. He has a tryout with the Minnesota Wild. They really need a 7th defenceman. In fact, I would like to see an 8th. I am wondering if any of the forwards could be moved back.

    This event is a two games per team event. In past years Regina would add a game against Briercret just so that they could wipe them out. Here's the schedule, all times at CDT:

    Regina v Saskatchewan 7:00 p.m. (Ochapowace First Nation)
    Calgary v Manitoba 7:00 p.m. (The Co-operators Centre)
    Manitoba v Saskatchewan 12:00 p.m. (The Co-operators Centre)
    Calgary at Regina 3:00 p.m. (The Co-operators Centre)

    Sept 17: Bisons Beat Mutts, Claim 2nd


    MANITOBA BISONS 5
    SASKATCHEWAN HUSKIES 2

    Links:
    • [U of M Schedule/Results]
    • [U of S Schedule/Results]


    This win for the Herd left both teams at 1-1-0 for the weekend and tied for 2nd. The Bisons were awarded 2nd by virtue of the win. Here's the report from the host site:
    Manitoba kicked off Saturday's action with a 5-2 victory over the Saskatchewan Huskies, led by Brett Dudar who had two goals and an assist. Daniel Stagg, Brett Stovin and Brett Brooks also found the net in the win.
    They also added a blurb on Friday's game:
    Also on Friday night, the Dinos dismantled Manitoba, earning a 7-2 win at The Co-opertaors Centre. The Dinos exploded for six unanswered goals over the first 45 minutes thanks to Danny Gayle, Luke Harrison, Mackenzie Colasimone, Chris Collins, Walchuk and Dumonceaux. Stagg and Stovin replied for Manitoba and Robbie Fisher added one more for the Dinos.
    It is not likely that I will find a roster link nor stats for either game. Not surprising to see Stovin score in both games, and Dudar closed strong when he plaued two years ago. But Stagg may be a surprise. This would give him 3 goals in 3 games as a walk-on in a camp with 20 forwards. Of course, last weekend's goal was an empty-netter and Friday's goal was once the game was out of hand. Next weekend's roster against Regina should be interesting.

    After hosting a 4-team event last weekend, the Banjo-Cats have the honour of bparding a bus leaving Saskatchewan this weekend. For Regina's new recruits the first road-trip could be an eye-opener. Things like cutlery, toothpaste, colour TV, indoor plumbing, and shoelaces can overwhelm a young hick.

    Although ranked 8th in the CW by most people, the Cats should be a huge step up from the Jamestown team the Bisons faced in their other home series.

    The Bison roster page is not yet updated for this year, so I don't know if any cuts have been made.

    The ACAC starts their schedule so no more interlcok for them. Four teams are off to Edmontown for the Brock Invitational. And in an interesting match-up YBC will host Ryerson. That leaves Lethbridge with a rock in their Halloween bag. Here's the schedule:

    Sept 23: Bisons Beat Bumpkins


    REGINA COUGARS 2
    MANITOBA BISONS 8

    Links:
    • [U of M Schedule/Results]
    • [LeagyeStat Daily]
    • [CW Schedule/Results]


    The Bisons amassed period leads of 3-0 and 5-0 en route to a one-sided pasting of the Banjo-Cats. The game was completely one-sided throughout. The shots were 37-27 with most Regina shots (14) coming in a chippy 3rd period.

    The Bisons lined up like this:

    Goal
    35 Spriggs - 34 Sydora -

    Defence
    4 Bresciani - 9 Hunter
    3 S Christensen - 19 Friesen
    20 Johnston - 2 Henry

    Forwards
    25 Merasty - 28 Stovin - 27 DePape
    13 Laurencelle - 10 Dudar - 29 Wasylak
    8 Bilton - 24 Augert - 21 Brooks
    16 Paradis - 23 Lisoway - 17 Callis

    Scratches
    G 1 Paulic
    D 5 L Christensen - 6 Heinrich
    F 12 Zajac - 14 Nault - 15 S Bowles
    F 18 Kelly - 22 B Bowles - 23 Schreyer -
    F 30 Stagg - ?? St. Croix

    Justin Augert scored twice and single goals were scored by Liam Bilton, Brett Brooks, Channing Bresciani, Brett Stovin, Rene Hunter, and Remi Laurencelle. Byron Spriggs started in goal and played the first two periods and Dasan Sydora took over in the 3rd.

    Of note, forward Hudson Friesen played defence. I suspected that something like this would happen with so many forwards in camp.

    Another note, each player on the 3rd line scored one of the Bisons' first three goals.

    The rematch goes Saturday at 1:00 p.m. While this runs opposite the homecoming football game, it is better than anight game which would go head-to-head with the Word Cup semi-final game.

    Michael St. Croix - C - Greenville (ECHL)

    - This was a new name on the Bison line-ip card. This Winnipeg native once scored 45 goals for Edmonton in the WHL and was then drafted by the Rangers and played 3 seasons in the ECHL with a pitstop in the AHL. Looks like a redshirt.

    The Rambos are no doubt enjoying a road-trip to British California. Too bad for them their sole accomplishment on the night was spoiling a shut-out mid-way through the 3rd period whilst trailing 4-0. This makes the Birdies 4-0-0 in the pre-season. The teams meet again on Saturday.

    Preview: Oct 1: Bisons at UND



    MANITOBA BISONS (5-1-0)
    NORTH DAKOTA FIGHTING HAWKS (0-0-0)

    • [InForum Story] ∞ [Grand Forks Herald]

    The Bisons are off on their (almost) annual trek to Grand Forks. This will be the first game in the history of the Fighting Hawks. UND teams started life as the "Flickertails" then spent most of their life as the "Fighting Sioux". Due to the NCAA prohibitiop on aboriginal names they have spent a few years without a nickname. So Saturday night marks a 4th pgase of history for them.

    For the Bisons this is just a one-game weekend, so with a huge roster still at camp there will be a lot of players without ice time. The Bisons have updated their roster page and no cuts have been made.

    There are two bits of news at UND, and one story about each is in the links. One is that they are getting their championship rings for the NCAA title they won last spring. Two is that they are the pre-season #1 choice in the polls.

    Sept 29-30: Out-of-Town Scoreboard


    U.N.D. has a new link for all-encompassing Game Notes. I will likely listen on the audio link supplied on the page.

    LU and the U of L last played in 2002 and tied one game 3-3 and the other was a 6-4 win for the Mutts.

    Both sides missed the playoffs last year. However, Lethbridge showed remarkable improvement. Lakehead also had a reasonable 2nd half after digging a deep hole in the 1st.

    This was Lakehead's first action of the season, while Lethbridge is 4-0-0 against ACAC teams.

    The linked game story has a nice description of what was apparently a chippy affair. The teams meet again on Saturday at 7:00 EDT, or 6:00 CDT.

    Oct 1: Late Surge Costs Bisons


    MANITOBA BISONS 1
    NORTH DAKOTA FIGHTING HAWKS 5

    Links:
    • [UND Game Story] ∞ [@ U of M]
    • [Box Score (pdf)] ∞ [@ U of M]
    • [Highlights]


    This was a funny game. The goals tended to come in bunches. After the Hawks (?) raised their banner (as NCAA champions) the 1st period produced little action. It looked like the period would end 0-0 when the Herd gave up two goals just 10 seconds apart.

    After a scoreless 2nd period the Bisons got on the board with an unassisted goal from Hudson Friesen (who now appears to be a defenceman, although this is not a certainty from the summary) after 4 minutes. At mid-period a Bison powerplay fizzled and after that there was no rally.

    Each goaltender played a period. Paulic stopped 11 of 13, Spriggs made all 8 saves he needed, and Sydora struggled, allowing 3 goals on 10 shots.

    Scratches were:
    D: 5 L. Christensen, 6 Heinrich
    F: 14 Nault, 16 Paradis, 18 Kelly
    F: 22 B. Bowles, 23 Schreyer, 27 DePape
    -- St. Croix

    DePape was injured against Regina last weekend. Hopefully he will be ready for the season.

    The Thundermutts vaulted to a 2-0 lead but the H0rny Ones bounced back for the win. A last second goal for the hosts made the scoreline look better. Lethbridge has a 6-0-0 pre-season mark, but have yet to play a conference opponent.

    To my knowledge, this represents the first game between these teams. A credible performance for the underdog Spartans. The Birds end the pre-season at 5-1-0. TWU beat SFU 6-1 in their only game within the BCIHL. They lost all 4 games outside the BCIHL.

    Return to GPAC! Back in the day it was the Bisons, Nor'westers (as they were), Regina, and the dearly departed Bobcats and Wesmen once had their own little conferemce. The Bisons are no doubt in a much better place right now.

    The shores of Lake Superior are a fairly common non-conference stop for the Bisons. In fact, Winnipeg is closer to Thunder Bay than any city in the OUA (700 km as opposed to 1,000 to Sudbury or 1,100 to North Bay). At one time Lakehead would host a 4-team event at Christmas. That was a tough trip when the Mutts were one of the better teams around. As they faded the event became more feasible as a one-on-one.

    I admit to having a soft spot for Thunder Bay teams. They face serious challenges just finding a league in which to play. In the past they had junior, senior, intermediate, and university teams all in one league just so they could find four.

    Lakehead started the season last week with two home losses to Lethbridge in a battle of two non-playoff teams from a year ago. They started last year at 0-10-1, went 1-1-3 before Christmas, then were a respectable 6-6-0 in the new year. The surge was not enough to make the playoffs in the OUA West, where 8 of the 10 teams qualified.

    The Bisons have won when they were supposed to this pre-season, easily sweeping series against Jamestown and Regina. Otherwise they beat Sask and lost to Calgary and North Dakota. I will be interested to see if they use all the players in camp, or if it is time to trim the roster.

    In one roster note, defenceman Blake Heinrich has been released by the Minnesota/Iowa Wild and should be ready to report.

    The linked story fron the CW includes the annual coaches' poll, since the regular season starts in Saskatchewan. Here's the result"

    Team / Points (first-place votes)

    1. Saskatchewan / 49 (7)
    2. Alberta / 39 (
    3. Mount Royal / 36

    The regular season starts in a staggered fashion this year. All by itself is this curtain-raiser from the Rutherdump in Saskatown. Manitoba and Alberta have non-conference games whilst Calgary, Mount Royal, Lethbridge, and Regina will gorge on turkey.

    The Banjomutts are the reigning champs. After two years in a downward spiral, the Mutts surprised last season when they seemed to strike gold with every new recruit. With a strong crop of returnees they are the big favourites this year.

    But hold on there, Baba Louie. The Mutts are only 1-2-1 in pre-season. Their only win was against Regina. They lost to Manitoba, Alberta (in OT), and Calgary. Pre-season records often show what sort of start a team will have.

    At the same time, the 'Birds went 5-1-0, but only two games were against the CW. Those were two OT wins over the Evil Monkeys. That's good. Their split with Ryerson is a sister-kisser. Their two wins against BCIHL teams were to be expected.

    This game is the last of the NCAA games. Can the Evil Monkeys stop the whitewash? In a twist, the OUA has done better against the NCAA than against the CW. At 5-2-2 the Apes look like a contender but not a scary juggernaut as was expected a year ago.

    The Herd is now 6-2 on the pre-season after a convincing win in Thunder Bay. The 'Wolves fall to 0-3. There was no line-up posted. But from the summary it appears that the Bisons are using everybody. Here is the summary:

    PERIOD 1:

    2. 13:46 Manitoba, Nault (Merasty , Henry ) PP

    17:38 Manitoba, Dudar (HLD/RO)

    PERIOD 3:
    7. 09:05 Lakehead, Cody Alcock (unassisted)
    8. 10:37 Manitoba, Auget (Johnston )
    9. 17:49 Lakehead, Tyler Anton (Matt Alexander, Kelin Ainsworth) PP
    Penalties:
    00:30 Lakehead, Justin Sefton (HLD)
    04:17 Manitoba, Lisoway (TR)
    08:23 Lakehead, Justin Sefton (RO)
    08:38 Manitoba, Henry (HKG)
    09:24 Lakehead, E.J. Faust (HS)
    13:12 Lakehead, Patrick Murphy (USC)
    16:29 Manitoba, Stovin (KN)

    Goaltenders:
    Lakehead:
    McDonald, 18 saves made, 5 goals against.
    Corbin, 16 saves made, 1 goals against.
    Manitoba:
    Spriggs, 13 saves made, 1 goals against.
    Sydora, 4 saves made, 2 goals against.

    That was some outburst in the 1st period. 4 goaks in 4 minutes! The shots favoured the Bisons 40-20.

    Oct 8: Bisons Sweep to End Pre-Season

    This game, and the Monkeys' game in the Excited States, bring the exhibition season to a close. This was a hybrid weekend, with the regular season starting elsewhere. More on that later. Right now,let's talk Bisons!

    A road sweep is never easy, so some level of celebration is in order. But the celebration should be somewhat subdued because it was not exactly a contender in opposite uniforms. The 7-2-0 pre-season is a decent record. However against likely playpff teams from the CW, the Herd was 1-1. Pretty much the same as everyone else!.

    As for the game, Kamerin Nault and Brad Bowles had two goals eacg and Jonah Wasylak scored for the 2nd game in a row. The links include a nice write-up and here's the summary:

    PERIOD 1:
    1. 01:41 Manitoba, Nault (Merasty , Augert )
    2. 06:23 Manitoba, Wasylak (Dudar , Johnston )
    Penalties:
    02:38 Manitoba, Zajac (SL)
    03:43 Manitoba, Hunter (HKG)
    11:37 Lakehead, Cody Alcock (SL)
    16:17 Lakehead, Devin Fullum (INT)
    19:01 Manitoba, Hunter (HLD)

    PERIOD 2:
    3. 00:19 Manitoba, B.Bowles (Hunter) SH
    4. 00:35 Lakehead, Cody Alcock (Linden Springer) PP
    5. 17:28 Lakehead, Tyler Anton (Justin Sefton)
    Penalties:
    07:25 Manitoba, Brooks (INT from Bench/GM)
    07:25 Manitoba, S.Bowles (CC)

    The Saskatchewanites will be having a ho-down tonight complete with banjos, moonshine, kazoos, and roast possum. Sask scored 6 goals on 29 shots on UBC goaltender Matt Hewitt. He was yanked with about 10 minutes left and newcomer Derek Dun stopped 4 of the 5 shots he faced. The shot pattern was odd. In the 1st period, the shots were 17-3 in favour of Sask (and they led 3-0), In the 2nd, UBC outshot Sask by 18-4 but Jordon Cooke stopped everything fired at the Sask goal. In the end the shots were 34-28 for Sask and 7 different mangy inbreds scored. This was the only regular season series on the CW schedule.

    The strikinh thing in the summary was that the shots were 24-21. Not the wide0open craziness for which the Evil Monkeys are known. Is this the beginning of a change in style? I note that 4 of their 6 pre-season games against CW teams went into overtime, and the other two were split. They finish the pre-season at 6-2-2.

    The teams start to play for real now. And it is about time. The start of exhibition play is exciting because it marks the coming of a n3w season and a chance to see the new recruits. But enough already.

    Last year the Bisons were 0-4 against the Bluegars. But this year the Bisons have loaded their roster with wuality new recruits while the Bluegars have last about 8 starters, including their leading scorer (Tyler Fiddler).

    A couple of years ago these two teams played the most physical games in the CW. They may not be as big as before, but are still fairly close. And they still maybe the mst physical match0up oyt there,

    Calgary was thought to be a team in decline But they snagged some pre-season wins over Manitoba, Regina, and Sask and had close losses to MRU and Alberta (twice). Despite their significant losses of key personnel, I suspect they will still be a strong opponent. UBC remains an enigma. Their pre-season record included two wins against the BCIHL and a split with Ryerson. They also beat Alberta twice, both in OT. I was unsure what to make of them. Then they were crushed by the Banjomutts last weekend. They could dig themselves a deep hole with two losses this series.

    This is a rematch of last season's final. However,both sides showed some cracks in pre-season but both won their games last weekend. They were also #1 and #2 in the CW coaches' poll. Sask returns most of their roster so should be improving still. The Evil Monkeys get a strong recruiting class every year, and this ne is no exception. However, they don't appear to be as good on ice as they do on paper.

    These two seem to be the perennial doorats in this conference. The H0rny Ones improved greatly and were very close to the playoffs last yera. Don't let the pre-season records fool you. Regina played only CW and NCAA teams, and Lehbridge played only ACAC amd OUA teams. So hard to gauge.

    This game was a tight one where the outcome as in doubt up until the empty net goal put it away. And this was the most one-sided game in the CW first full weekend of competition.

    My son was sick so we stayed home and I watched the stream on CanadaWest.tv. It was mostly entertaining. The Bisons opened scoring when Justin Augert skayed through 5 Blyegars by himself on a line change. However, MRU cashed in twice on powerplays to take the lead. With the game tied 1-1 after two periods, the Bisons dominated most of the 3rd period. The shots were 15-7. However, after killing a couple of pemalties, MRU cashed in after the Bisons took a too many men penalty om the final 5 minutes.

    Bluegars scorers were Connor Rankin, Jesse Lee, and Cam Maclise. Byron Spriggs was tagged with the loss, stopping 18 of the 20 shots he faced. Colin Cooper stopped 25 of 26 to post the win.

    The scratches for the Bisons were:

    Defence:
    5 L Christensen - 6 B Heinrich

    Forwards:
    8 L Bilton - 12 N Zajac - 16 J Paradis
    21 B Brooks - 27 J DePape

    Goaltender:
    34 Sydora

    The Saturday rematch is a 1:00 matinee and can be seen on CanadaWest.tv and heard on 101.5 YMFM.com.

    This is the type of game one does not expect in the CW. The shors were 29-20 for Bedrock U. Steven Stafford got the win for the Dinos and Matt Hewitt took the loss for the Tweeties. After giving up 11 goals last weekend, this represents progress for UBC.

    The Banjpcats were 0-6 on pre-season. But that was agaunst CW and NCAA competition. Meanwhile, the H0rny Ones were 6-0 against ACAC and OUA opposition. Rgis shows what a difference there is in those schedules. The new goaltenders racked up some good numbers. Andy Desautels stopped 29 of 20 for the win and Garrett Hughson stopped 36 of 38 taking the loss.

    Being swept at home is never a good thing. The score was not a real indication of the play, but that doesn't really matter.

    The 1st period saw the Bisons score first, when Shaq Merasty made a great pass to Remi Laurencelle. Although the period was pretty even (the shots were 9-8), MRU scired 3 times in the last 8 minutes. Bison golatender Justin Paulic did not exactly distinguish himself. One goal was a breakaway. Otherwise there was little sustained oressure by the Bluegars.

    The 2nd period was quite close and Bisons appeared to be capable of a comeback. The TSN Turning Point happened late in the period when Colin Cooper stopped Brett Stovin on a breakway which was closely followed by Rankin;s 2nd of the night.

    The Bisons did not have much left for a 3rd period comeback and kind of mailed it in. When you are ourshot (13-11) in a 3rd period where you are trailing it is not a good sign for a comeback.

    Here's how thd Bisons lined up:

    10 Dudar 28 Stovin 29 Wasylak
    13 Laurencelle 25 Merasty 24 Augert
    12 Zahac 23 Schreyer 17 Callis
    22 B Bowles 15 S Bowles 14 Naukt

    The scratches for the Bisons were:

    G 34 Sydora
    D 5 Christensen - 6 Heinrich
    F 8 Bilton - 16 Paradis - 18 Kelly
    F 21 Brooks - 26 Lisoway - 27 DePape

    The Bisons are off to Regina next weekend. Ick. Their goal will be to leave with a .500 record.

    The Banjomutts pick up 3 out of 4 points on the toughest roadtrip of the season. The game was tied after two and then the Evil Monkeys lost in what has become a familiar manner. They outshot the Bumpkins 13-5 but gave up the only two goals of the period.

    Nobody can lose two home games to the Banjocats and still make the playoffs. The last goal was an empty-netter, so this was close throughout. This was the most free-wheeling game of the weekend, with shots of 38-37 in favour of the winners.

    I got tired of waiting for stuff so I made a bare-bones post on Friday night/Saturday morning and am doing a proper updated here on Saturday lunch time.

    I got to watch this on CanadaWest.tv. Regina did a reasonable job on their broadcast. The Bison alignment was hard to determine because I have bad vision (until Monday!), the Bison numbers are hard to see on their road jerseys, and broadcasters usually rarely mention the names of away players. However, they had just 4 regular defencemen dressed (Sean Christesnen, Channing Bresciani, Rene Hunter, and Garrett Johnston). It seems that Hunter Friesen is not a defemceman and I have to assume that one oother forward got introduced to the blueline.

    The scratches were Paulic in goal, Adam Genry on defence, and Brent Dudar at forward. Yet to dress for a regular season game are Liam Bilton, Lee Christensen, Blake Heinrich, Dylan Kellym abd Jesse Paradis. Which are out due to numbers and which due to injury is unknown to me.

    The Kittens played much better than they did in the pre-season. They outshot the Bisons 38-30. However they have a severe lack of offensive finesse so not many of their chances were awe-inspiring. Still a good performance by Byron Spriggs. Quick summary:

    1st
    11:46 Man Augert (2) ASST: Laurencelle (7)
    15:56 Reg McPhee (1) ASST: None
    2nd
    14:51 Man Merasty (1) ASST: Augert (1)
    3rd
    6:03 Man Stovin (1) ASST: DePape (1), Zajac (1)
    13:51 Man Augert (3) ASST: Laurencelle (2)
    17:13 Man Lisoway (1) ASST: Callis (1)

    Good to see that Jordan DePape was back in the roster.

    Saturday's rematch is at 3:99 CST or 4:00 CDT.

    The Bluegars are off to a good start. After a pair of 1-0 wins, Bedrock U must now get used to having to score some. The Bluegars likely want to avoid another 3rd place finish so they can get that elusive first round bye. Cplon Cooper got the win and Steven Stafford took the loss. Matthew Brown led MRU with a hat-trick. A dominant win for MRU on all the stats.

    The H0rny Ones never played a CW opponent in pre-season then opened with a split against Regina. So this series will help put them in context. They came out guns-a-blazing and outshot Sask 17-6 but were still tied 1-1. Jordon Cooke got the win and Garrett Hughson suffered the loss. Jesse Forsberg scored twice for the Mutts, including the OT winner. Meanwhile, Justin Valentino scored both goals for the 'Horns.

    The Bisons completed a convincing sweep of the Banjocats late Saturday afternoon. The matinee was great because it allowed the players to get the heck out of that dump as soon as possible.

    The line-up was the same as on Friday except that Paulic replaced Sydora as the backup goaltender. Byron Spriggs stopped 27 of 30 in claiming his 2nd win of the weekend. Regina started veteran Mitch Kilgore and he stopped 26 of 30 through two periods before Andy Desaitels came in to stop 8 of 9 in the 3rd. Here's how the scoring went:

    1st
    7:44 Reg Coleshaw (2) ASST: Bell (2), Luhning (1) (PP)
    10:28 Man B Bowles (1) ASST: Stovin (1), S Bowles (1) (PP)
    2nd
    5:18 Man DePape (1) ASST: Stovin (2), Lisoway (1)
    10:13 Man Hunter (1) ASST: Stovin (3), DePape (2) (PP)
    17:59 Man Stovin (2) ASST: B Bowles (1), DePape (3) (PP)
    3rd
    2:11 Reg Coleshaw (3) ASST: Fowlie (1)
    9:21 Reg McNulty (1) ASST: None
    14:26 Man Augert (4) ASST: Merasty (2), Laurencelle (3)
    18:38 Man Callis (1) ASST: None (EN)

    Augert is racking up the goals. He also scored a bundle in the pre-season. He has really clicked with Merasty and Laurencelle. DePape appears to be hitting his stride after his injury. He and Stovin played with one or both of the Bowles at various times. The Cats have to watch the penalties. The Bisons went 3 for 10 on the PP. (Regina was 1 for 3.)

    The Bisons host UBC next weekend for a Friday-Saturday double-header.

    In the Town of Bedrock it appears that the Bluegars are now the #1 team. This was not as close as the score would indicate. The shots were 45-29 and it was 4-1 with less than 2 minutes left. Colin Cooper was again the winning goaltender and newcomer Coleman Volrath was tagged with the loss. Luke Simpson scored twice for the winners and Dylan Walchuk had a deuce for Bedrock U.

    The Mangy Mutts had a 3-1 lead before being blown away by the H0rny Ones. Jordon Cooke was unable to bail out the Mutts this time, stopping 28 of 32 shots. Garrett Hughson stopped 32 of 35 shots for the win. Tim Campbell's 2 goals led the way for the 'Horns. So Lethbridge starts with 2 points against Regina and 3 against Sask. Early results make me believe that the conference has tightened a bit this year.

    This win shows the strengths and weaknesses of the Evil Monkeys. They outshot the Birds 15-7 in the 1st period yet trailed 3-2. Starting goaltender Kenny Cameron lasted barely 10 minutes, giving up 3 goals on 6 shots. Brendan Burke then stopped 17 of 19 to secure the win. Matt Hewitt gave up 8 goals on 31 shots before pulled pulled mid-way through the 3rd. Derek Dun then gave up 1 goal on the 8 shots he faced. Rtson Baillie and Jamie Crooks each scored twice for the Apes, and Chase Clayton notched a pair for the Birds.

    So after two weeks for most teams, here is how they stand:

    This is an important early season test for the boys from British California. They are 1-5-0 and two more losses this weekend would leave them in a tough spot. Moreover, they have opened the season against the teams they need to beat if they want to move up the CW ladder. They have played Sask, Calgary, and Alberta. UBC have longed for the day when they do more than fight tooth and nail for the final playoff spot.

    In a quirky stat, over the last 4 years UBC is 4-3-1 at Manitoba and Manitoba is 5-2-1 at UBC.

    Bison goaltender Byron Spriggs was awarded the CW's 2nd star for AoW last week. I suspect he may get both starts again this weekend. Up front, 4 forwards are at least on a point-per-game pace - Augert, Stovin, DePape, and Laurencelle.

    The Bisons have thus far faced just the best and the worst of the CW. If they want to move up, this is the type of series they need to win.

    This is a home-and-home series between the two southern Alberta rivals. Bedrock U had a solid pre-season, followed by a sweep of UBC and a domination by MRU. The H0rny Ones should be a challenger for a playoff berth this year. Each team has a new goaltender, Coleman Vollrath for the Dinos and Garrett Hughson for the 'Horns.

    Here's another home-and-home series. Canines vs. Felines. The Bumpkins of Northern Banjoland vs. the Hicks of the South. Friday's game in Regina is their Shine On game, a fundraiser for cancer research. The Kittens were swept by the Bisons last weekend but did show signs of life. Against a common opponent (Lethbridge), Regina earned a 2-2 point split whilst Sask was 2-3. Sask is the reigning champ and on paper should be stronger this year, but their results make me pause for now.

    This is the most interesting match-up of the weekend. In the whole CIS, the Evil Monkeys are the most consisent winner and the newcomer Bluegars are off to the best start. So is the start of the season just a blip? Or a sign of things to come? After losing last Friday, the Monkeys came out guns-a-blazing last Saturday. Have they turned the corner?

    Oct 28: Bisons Beat Birds


    U.B.C. THUNDERBIRDS 2
    MANITOBA BISONS 3

    Is there such a thing as a convincing 3-2 win? If so, this was it. The Bisons carried the play, outshooting the Birds 40-31 and missing many top-notch scoring opportunities. The Bisons also rolled 4 lines most of the time, whilst UBC stuck to their top 9 forwards. That combination leaves the Bisons better poritioned for the Saturday rematch. Now, on to the game.

    This was my first game with a good eye so I was able to get a good handle on the line-ups. Here's the alignment:

    MANITOBA

    Goal:
    35 Spriggs (1 Paulic)

    Defence:
    4 Bresciani - 19 Friesen
    20 Johnston - 2 Henry
    3 S Christensen - 28 Stovin

    Forwards:
    24 Augert - 13 Laurencelle - 25 Merasty
    15 S Bowles - 22 B Bowles - 27 DePape
    21 Brooks - 17 Callis - 23 Schreyer
    29 Wasylak - 12 Zajak - 26 Lisoway

    Scratches:
    5 L Christensen (D) 6 Heinrich (D)
    8 Bilton (F) 9 Hunter (D) 10 Dudar (F)
    14 Nault (F) 16 Paradis (F) 34 Sydora (G)

    U.B.C.

    Goal:
    30 Hewitt (34 Dun)

    Defence:
    4 Vannieuwenhuizen - 8 Guenther
    13 Becker - 7 Faith
    26 Carvalho - 29 Smith
    2 Fafard

    Forwards:
    12 Buonassisi - 23 Lockhart - 22 Clayton
    5 Stenerson - 15 Rossignol - 20 Antilla
    9 Hayer - 10 Bardaro - 17 Vetterl
    16 Popoff - 18 Lebrun

    Scratches:
    6 Underwood (D) 11 Rai (F) 14 Grewal (D)
    19 Georgeson (F) 21 Nachtigall (F)
    27 Connolly (D) 31 Devji (G)

    SCORING:

    1st
    18:41 UBC Bardaro (3) ASST: Lockhart (1), Antilla (1) (PP)
    2nd
    0:38 Man DePape (2) ASST: B Bowles (2), S Bowles (2)
    1:34 Man Augert (5) ASST: Laurencelle (4), Merasty (3)
    19:54 Man Henry (1) ASST: Merasty (4), Laurencelle (5) (PP)
    3rd
    19:47 UBC Lockhart (2) ASST: Bardaro (2), Vetterl (2)

    As mentioned, UBC did not use their "extra" guys very much. Of note, Brett Stovin was moved back to the blueline. However, during two 10 minute misconducts assessed against the Bisons, he moved up front to allow the 4 line rotation to continue.

    The game started with some good back-and-forth play. The Bisons generated a few great chances but were unable to pull the trigger, including a breakaway for Jordan DePape. Play turned in UBC's favour when the Bisons took back-to-back penalties late in the period. On the 2nd one, Anthony Bardaro gave the Birds their only lead of the game.

    The intermission changed the game around. Before the hot dogs got cold the Bisons had a 2-1 lead on goals from DePape (his 2nd) and Justin Augert (his 5th). Play settled in thereafter. Then in the last minute of play, Adam Henry scored his 1st of the season on a Bison PP.

    Despite trailing by two goals, UBC did not really force the play in the 3rd period. In fact, they were outshot 13-10. Hard to come back with those numbers. With an empty net they finally created some chances and narrowed the gap with 13 seconds left. Too little, too late.

    Byron Spriggs stopped 29 of 31 shots to claim the win, and veteran Matt Hewitt stopped 37 of 40 in suffering defeat.

    The rematch goes Saturday at 7:30, later than usual due to the Blue Bummers' afternoon game.

    The H0rny Ones have lost their home leg of this home-and-home series and have fallen a point behind Bedrock U as a result. They did outshoot the Dinos 32-25 on the night. However, it took a last-minute goal to make the scoreline respectable. Veteran Steven Stanford got the win and rookie Garret Hughson got the loss.

    The Dogs beat the Cats in the first Battle of Banjoland this season. There were 5 different goal-scorers. Jordon Cooke got another win, making 25 saves in 26 chances. Andy Desautels stopped 33 of 37 in taking the loss. Regina modeled some new yellow jerseys in the game.

    The Evil Monkeys had to win in order to bring the Bluegars back into reality and here you go. All of the goals came in a wild 2nd period. Luke Siemans picked up the win, making 26 saves in 28 chances, and Colin Cooper tasted his first loss, stopping 27 of 31. There were 6 different goal-scorers on the night.

    So the CW's traditional Big Four all won their games. Is the conference going back to normal?

    Oct 29: UBC Gets a Split


    U.B.C. THUNDERBIRDS 3

    I fell asleep Saturday night while waiting for the game story to be uploaded. So here we go with a Sunday afternoon nightly report.

    One might think that a 3-2 loss following a 3-2 win would imply two comparable games with simply a reverse score, but that is not the case. The Bisons controlled Friday's game. While they outshot UBC 34-30 on Saturday, they missed the net or failed to pull the trigger on their best chances on Saturday. They did not pass as well, fumbled the puck, and were generally just not sharp all night.

    MANITOBA

    Goal:
    1 Paulic (35 Spriggs)

    Defence:
    20 Johnston - 2 Henry
    4 Bresciani - 3 S Christensen
    19 Friesen

    Forwards:
    15 S Bowles - 22 B Bowles - 27 DePape
    24 Augert - 13 Laurencelle - 25 Merasty
    14 Nault - 28 Stovin - 10 Dudar
    12 Zajak - 26 Lisoway - 29 Wasylak - 17 Callis

    Scratches:
    5 L Christensen (D) 6 Heinrich (D) 8 Bilton (F)
    9 Hunter (D) 16 Paradis (F) 18 Kelly (F)
    21 Brooks (F) 23 Schreyer (F) 34 Sydora (G)

    U.B.C.

    Goal:
    34 Dun (30 Hewitt)

    Defence:
    26 Carvalho - 29 Smith
    13 Becker - 7 Faith
    4 Vannieuwenhuizen - 8 Guenther

    Forwards:
    9 Hayer - 10 Bardaro - 17 Vetterl
    12 Buonassisi - 23 Lockhart - 15 Rossignol
    14 Grewal - 22 Clayton - 20 Antilla
    5 Stenerson - 16 Popoff - 18 Lebrun

    Scratches:
    2 Fafard (D) 6 Underwood (D) 11 Rai (F)
    19 Georgeson (F) 21 Nachtigall (F)
    27 Connolly (D) 31 Devji (G)

    SCORING:

    1st
    4:24 UBC Antilla (1) ASST: Carvalho (1), Bardaro (3) (PP)
    17:38 Man DePape (3) ASST: B Bowles (2)
    18:22 UBC Vetterl (3) ASST: Hayer (1), Bardaro (4)
    2nd
    11:30 Man Lisoway (2) ASST: Callis (2), Wasylak (1)
    3rd
    11:44 UBC Bardaro (4) ASST: Guenther (1), Vetterl (3)

    The Bisons rotated their 5 defencemen, so the pairings did not really exist. Stovin was moved back up front on a separate line to "spread the wealth", and the four guys on the 4th line all played a lot. IMO, you don't need 13 forwards dressed and perhaps the alignment is what made the team seem out of synch all night.

    Next week the Bisons are off to visit the Dinos at Bedrock U. They host Lethbridge November 11-12.

    The H0rny Ones were clinging to a 1-0 lead after two periods but before you could say Yabba Dabba Doo the Dinos had a 2-1 win. Matthew Greenfield had his first start for the Dinos and veteran Damien Ketlo got the nod for Lethbridge. Shots were 30-22 for Calgary.

    The Banjocats were flattered by this scoreline. They were outshot 51-21 yet it took a late 3rd period goal by the Banjomutts to break a 3-3 tie. Once again, Sask went with Jordon Cooke in goal and Regina countered with Andy Desautels.

    The Bluegars entered the weekend in a lofty 1st place status but the Evil Monkeys responded in their traditional fashion. After a win at home, the Apes showed they were just as adept winning on the road. An MRU goal with 2 seconds left made it look close. Luke Siemens stopped 32 of 34 for the win and vet Cam Lanigan stopped 23 of 26 for the loss.

    The last time these teams met it was in the playoffs and Bedrock U won 2 games to 1. Which was odd because the Bisons won all 4 regular season games in 2015-16. Over the last 4 years, the Bisons have a 7-5-4 record against the Dinos. That's a lot of overtime games, and this weekend is likely not going to be an exception.

    The Bisons need to find out where they stand against teams like this one. I am interested to see if they will be getting any injured defencemen back in the line-up.

    The CW link above has a summary of the WHL scholarships. Here are the numbers:

    Summary: WHL Scholarships 2016-2017

    Canadian Universities, Western Canada – 225
    Canadian Universities, Eastern Canada – 50
    Canadian Colleges and other institutions – 71
    U.S. Colleges, Universities – 9
    Total WHL Scholarships – 355

    WHL Graduates continuing to play hockey at the elite Canadian University or College level:

    Canada West Conference – 142
    Ontario University Athletics /Atlantic University Sport Conferences – 45
    ACAC / BCIHL – 15
    Total – 202

    Note that I deleted "live links" from the CW and CIS sites. Last week none of those were updated once the entire weekend, hence they were not "live links". I may post them in later weeks if they become activated.

    ELSEWHERE:


    LETHBRIDGE PRONGHORNS (2-3-1, 8-3-1, OHT35 #20)
    U.B.C. THUNDERBIRDS (2-6-0, 7-7-0, OHT35 #22)

    This could be the series to decide the 6th and final playoff berth. Last year UBC was 6th and the H0rny Ones were 7th. And that's where these teams currently sit, albeit with Lethbridge out in front.


    ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS (4-2-0, 10-4-2, OHT35 #4)
    REGINA COUGARS (1-5-0, 1-11-0, OHT35 #33)

    The Evil Monkeys had a shaky start but rose to the occasion against the Bluegars last weekend. Are they now on a roll? Not sure the Banjocats are the measuring stick for that. Road sweeps are never easy but that is what would draw the most bets if the CW was on gambling sites.


    SASKATCHEWAN HUSKIES (6-1-1, 7-3-2, OHT35 #2)
    MOUNT ROYAL COUGARS (4-2-0, 6-5-0, OHT35 #5)

    After a sweep by the Monkeys a week ago, the Bluegars have to show whether they are pretenders or contenders. This battle with the defending champs will do just that. Both sides have been reliant on goaltending. Let's see if that holds up.
