All I got is a tweet and the score on this one. The Dinos are now 3-0-0 in pre-season. This was the Bluegars' first game, and they now have the weekend off.

This was originally dubbed as “Laval Rocket” and then was changed to “Montreal Canadiens Rookies” against the Quebec University All-Stars. The game was tied 1-1 after one and 3-3 after two. In the final period the aspiring pros dominated the shot clock (18-3) and scored four times to sail away with a win.

The Saskatoon tournament got off to an early start, and the first all-OUA game was held Thursday night as well.

No tweets, nor stories, on this one. The score was posted on both sites on Friday. It appears that nobody is using LeagueStat in the CW until the season starts. So rosters will remain a mystery, as will game details.

 

Fortunately, the OUA has started making extensive use of LeagueStat, with Thursday's game and Friday's five games all covered.

This is the pre-season's real kick-off weekend, with most teams seeing some action. The feature event is the Saskatown tournament.

The linescore posted by the UofA tells us that their goal-scorers were Nolan Volcan (2), Cole Sanford, Trevor Cox, Ben Carroll, and Lucas Nickles. The period scores were 1-0 and 3-1. Twitter tells that the shots were 34-16 in favour of the Monkeys. The Bisons are 7-8-1 against the Monkeys over the last 4 years, which is probably as good as anybody has done. The Apes are now 3-0-0 and this was the Bisons' first game.

The Dinos are 4-0-0 now, and Regina falls to 0-2-0. The Bisons face the Dinos on Saturday. This was game 3 of the Saskatown event.

With Holy Trinity entering the CW next year, this year's game is a glimpse of things to come. TWU has a decent game story linked. UBC is now 1-3-1 in pre-season, and this was TWU's first game. The T-irds have now won all four exhibition games in their program histories. This was the opening of a 3-team round-robin including the Simon Fraser Clown for the “Captains' Cup”.

There are no details on this game anywhere, but it is hard to imagine that this was anything other than a whuppin'. Calgary is now 5-0-0 and Manitoba is 0-2-0. Next weekend the Bisons host Regina, so I'll see what the new line-up looks like for real.

 

I have added a link to UMFM's podcast. The season debut had an interview with new goaltender Tyler Brown.

The U of A Twitter was updating scores. Shots were 31-20 in favour of the Monkeys. Alberta is now 4-0-0 and Sask is 1-1-0. Looking at the five scores from the weekend in Saskatown, it would seem that the Dinos and Monkeys are a cut above the Bisons and Banjolanders. Although, they have also played the most pre-season games and should be closer to their true form. We'll see. Alberta and Calgary play head-to-head next week to wrap up the pre-season. Oddly, Sask has no more games until the regular season starts.

Dubbed as the "Babcock Bowl" (Mike Babcock coached both sides at one time), the Kings have scored a major win for the ACAC by defeating the Hörny Ønes. I believe this to be their first win over a CW team. The period leads were 1-0 and 2-1 and the Kings held the shots lead, 32-20. The Kings are now 1-2-0 and this was the first game for Lethbridge. The rematch goes Sunday.

One win was nice, but when followed by a convincing win like this, even if against the Hörny Ønes, is a big moment for the Kings and the ACAC. The Boxscore listed just 12 skaters and a goaltender for Lethbridge.

This is from Tuesday night. No boxscores or stories about this one. These teams have now split two games, the only two played by the Bluegars thus far. This is the first loss for the Town of Bedrock, as they fall to 5-1-0.

The first actual hockey game of the season for me comes on Friday night at the U of M. Not many CW pre-season games utilize the LeagueStat reporting, but both of this weekend's games are listed. There is no TV or radio coverage of the series. However, all men's home games are going to be heard on UMFM 101.5 and at their on-line link provided.
 
The Bisons have a decided edge over Regina in recent years. Over the last 5 years they are 12-3-1. However, last year it was a home sweep at the hands of the Banjocats that set the Bison season sideways. They started with a tour of the British Isles. They were short-staffed for that one but still went 1-3-0 (with two one-goal losses). When they came back, they beat SAIT, lost to Sask, and beat Regina. So fair enough. Then they split on the road against the Dinos, went down south where they lost twice (but once in overtime against UND), then split a home series against the Evil Monkeys. Pretty fair start. But those two losses to Regina started an 11-game losing streak. Ugh.
Of note, the rosters are being updated at 6 of the 8 CW team sites. Lethbridge and UBC are the only holdouts.
 
The Bisons have added two returning defencemen who did not dress for the Brown/Gold game. Those are Mitchell Dyck and Carter Doerksen. They have 28 players, 16 forwards, 9 defencemen, and 3 goaltenders. (I don't like it when a team only has 7 defencemen.)
 
Here's the Bison roster (number/name/year/former team):
 
Goaltenders:
1 Jeremy Link – 1 – Blues (MJHL)
30 Riley Lamb - 1 – Swift Current (WHL)
35 Tyler Brown – 1 – Saskatoon (WHL)
 
Defencemen:
2 Adam Henry – 5 – Portland (WHL)
3 Sean Christensen – 5 – St. Boniface (MMJHL)
4 Matthew Stanley – 1 – Swift Current (WHL) Jacksonville (ECHL)
5 Liam Schioler – 1 – Regina (WHL)
6 Mitchell Dyck – 2 – Winkler (MJHL)
11 Ryan Carlson – 2 – UWS (NCAA)/ Steinbach (MJHL)
25 Lucas Skrumeda – 3 – Everett (WHL)
27 Carter Doerksen – 2 – Nipawin (SJHL)
28 Brady Pouteau - 1 – Regina (WHL)
 
Forwards:
8 Connor Barley – 1 – Selkirk (MJHL)
9 Dylan Thiessen – 1 – Mercyhurst (NCAA)
10 Devon Skoleski – 2 – Blues (MJHL)
12 Keaton Jameson – 2 – Swan Valley (MJHL)
13 Nicholas Labossiere – 1 – Selkirk/Steinbach (MJHL) St. Vital (MMJHL)
14 Geordie Keane – 2 – Blues (MJHL)
15 Ben Dalke – 1 – Virden (WHL)
16 Josh Tripp – 1 – Swan Valley (MJHL)
17 Colton Veloso – 2 – Jacksonville (ECHL)
18 Bradley Goethals – 1 – Swan Valley (MJHL)/Saskatoon (WHL)
19 Nathan Halvorsen – 1 – Selkirk (MJHL)
20 Tony Apetagon – 1 – Blues/OCN (MJHL)
21 Brian Harris – 1 – Swan Valley (MJHL)/Edmonton (WHL)
22 Jeremey Leipsic – 2 – Portage (MJHL)
26 Matthew LeBlanc – 2 – Blues (MJHL)
29 Jonah Wasylak – 5 – Steinbach (MJHL)
 
Notes:
Chase Brakel – He was an announced recruit in June but is not on the roster.
Travis Ridgen – Looks like he's been cut again!
 
Regina's Roster
 
Goaltenders:
30 Brandon Holtby - 3 - Dauphin (MJHL)
31 Dawson MacAuley - 5 - Regina (WHL)

24 Zak Hicks - 4 - Red Deer College (ACAC)
27 Brennan Riddle - 2 - Vancouver (WHL)
28 Landon Peel - 5 - Kootenay (WHL)
 
Forwards:
8 Keith Anderson - 2 - Battlefords (SJHL)
9 Conner Chaulk - 2 - Calgary (WHL)
11 Connor Odelein - 2 - Lloydminster (AJHL)
12 Scott Mickoski - 1 - Portage (MJHL)
13 Tristan Frei - 4 - Melfort (SJHL)
14 Tate Coughlin - 2 - Cowichan (BCHL)

23 Arthur Miller - 2 - Estevan (SJHL)
29 Tanner Campbell - 2 - Salmon Arm (BCHL)
32 Ty Barnstable - 1 - Portage (MJHL)
 
Note: Regina has lost two highly touted WHL recruits from two years ago, goaltender Michael Herringer and forward Zach Zborosky. Last year Zborosky had 5 goals and 2 assists in 4 games against the Bisons.

So I got to watch the pre-season home opener, caught my boy's friend's band, went home, got a cat nap, then started watching three Rugby World Cup games from Japan. Can I make it to 4:45 am when the All Blacks meet the Springboks? Might need another cat nap.

 

The first news of the evening is the arena renovations. There was a smell of paint, large fans were at ice level to clear the fog from the glass (it rained immensely and we had very high humidity), the handicapped seating stickers were being applied as the game started, and the prices at the concession stand have suffered a major boost. But the upper deck was in place. I snapped a shot of the Ice signage due to finished before they open Saturday night. I snapped a picture from the upper deck. You can see the centre ice scaffolding which is still up. It's a nice view above the netting. You can't really see the boards beneath you from that vantage point.

As for the game, the Bisons dressed 19 skaters. Here's the alignment:

Regina scored a soft one 3:40 into the game. Tristan Frei dribbled one underneath Tyler Brown's left pad. He'd like that one back. There was then no scoring until the 3rd period. Adam Henry pounced on a loose puck 7 minutes in to tie it. Then Jonah Wasylak tipped a point shot from Keaton Jameson to give the Herd their first lead 9 minutes in. The last 3 1/2 minutes saw a flurry of activity. Tanner Campbell tied the game when the Bisons vacated the d-zone to look for more goals, leaving a break-out opportunity for the Cougars. However Adam Henry restored the lead when he pinched in from the point to sink one in the open net. With the goalie pulled for an extra attacker, Regina evened the score again when Conner Chaulk converted a scramble. Neither the 4-on-4 nor the 3-on-3 produced a goal, and after 5 saves on the shootout, Chaulk scored the winner.

 

Regina is now 1-2-0 and the Bisons are 0-2-1 in the pre-season.

 

Rematch goes Saturday at 1:30 p.m.

The T-irds now have convincing wins over both of next year's newcomers. They are now 2-3-1. Of concern, UBC dressed just 15 skaters. Holy injury bug, Batman!  Tyler Sandhu led the way with a hat-trick and Matt Revel scored a pair. Rylan Toth got the win with 15 saves. Marc-Olivier Daigle (a former Monkey from 2015-16 who never played) recorded a 28 save loss. The Peter Griffins are now 1-2-0. This series also continues Saturday.

There were very few line-up changes, but the game had quite a different feel. The passing was better and it looked more "regular season" than Friday's game. Both sides dressed 19 skaters and two goaltenders. Here's the alignment:

After a scoreless first period, the Bisons opened scoring 41 seconds into the 2nd period when Geordie Keane cashed in a perfect assist from Keaton Jameson. After 13 minutes, newcomer defenceman Matthew Stanley made it 2-0 with a hard point shot. Turner Ripplinger broke the shutout 7 minutes into the 3rd on a passing play inside the slot. Riley Lamb stopped all 11 shots he faced to get the win, and Jeremy Link came on mid-way through and stopped 14 of the 15 shots he faced.

Dawson MacAuley went the distance and took the loss, with 32 saves on 34 shots.

 

It appears that the Bisons have been hit with a few injuries. Five players (Skoleski, Tripp, Leipsic, Leblanc, and Doerksen) never dressed for either game. Also, the team went with just 6 of their 9 defencemen actually playing on the blueline. 3rd year veteran Lukas Skrumeda played centre on Friday and last year's mid-season recruit Ryan Carlson played right wing both games. The last time the Bisons used defencemen as forwards on a regular basis they finished first! Up front, a massive influx of Junior A grads (even though very accomplished ones) will obviously experience some growing pains. Two players who did shine were Geordie Keane (who did not play last year and was a scratch most times the season before) and Nico Labossiere. Both had a nose for net. A lot of the others are playing nervous right now, which is understandable.

 

Here's a weekend stat: The Bisons were 2-for-15 on the PP, Regina was 0-for-10. Thankfully, there were far fewer penalties on Saturday than on Friday.

 

The Bisons are 1-2-1 in the pre-season, and Regina falls to 1-3-0. The Bisons will have two non-conference games down south during the conference bye week.

Regina kicks off the regular season at home with a Friday-Saturday series against Calgary, whilst the Bisons host Lethbridge inn a Saturday-Sunday series.

The Evil Monkeys trailed almost the whole game but in the end won it in OT. On the pre-season, Bedrock U falls to 6-1-1 and the Apes rise to 5-1-0. Cole Sanford led the Apes with 2 goals. Matt Berlin got the win with 20 saves on 24 shots, and Tyler Gutenberg got the loss with 18 saves on 23 shots. Not the greatest save percentages heading into the season. The Monkeys were also 3-for-7 on the PP. Both sides hit the road next weekend to start the regular season, Calgary going to Regina and Alberta to UBC.

The Peter Griffins scored a pair of 3rd period goals, one in the last minute, to make the scoreline look respectable. UBC had four different scorers. Rylan Toth got the win, stopping all 16 shots he faced through two periods. Ben Maquignaz played the 3rd and stopped 2 of the 4 shots he faced. UBC finishes the pre-season at 3-3-1 and MacEwan falls to 1-3-0. Their next CW action will be about a year from now.

The season is about to start for real! Instead of the usual Friday/Saturday double-header, this will be a Saturday/Sunday affair. The Bison opponent will be the Hørny Ønes, a team against whom the Bisons have played their worst games in recent years. Consider this: the Herd is 7-7-2 over the last four years against both the Evil Monkeys and the Hørny Ønes.

 

This is as good a time as any to look at the new Lethbridge line-up:

 

Goaltenders:
29 Jack Burgart - 4 - Bemidji State (NCAA)
33 Nikolas Amundrud - 1 - Rosetown (Sr AAA)
35 Taz Burman - 2 - Nanaimo Clippers (BCHL)

 

Defencemen:
2 Danny Gatenby - 1 - Nanaimo (BCHL)
3 Dallas Valentine - 3 - Kamloops (WHL)
4 Joshua Patrician - 1 - Humboldt (SJHL)
5 Jeff Rayman - 3 - Vancouver (WHL)
7 Spenser Jensen - 5 - Moose Jaw (WHL)
19 Taylor Fisher - 3 - Selkirk (MJHL)
25 Cameron Trott - 3 - Alaska-Anchorage (NCAA)/ Vernon (BCHL)
44 Evan Wardley - 4 - Seattle (WHL)

 

Forwards:
6 Russell Maxwell LW - 4 - Seattle (WHL)
8 Ryan Chynoweth LW - 4 - Lloydminster (AJHL)
9 Dalton Sward C - 5 - Vancouver (WHL)
11 George King RW - 1 - Melfort (SJHL)
12 Jared Janke C - 1 - Campbellton (MHL)
14 Kyle Gordon LW - 1 - Okotoks (AJHL)
16 Landon Gross LW - 2 - Olds (AJHL)
17 Josh Borynec LW - 1 - Melville (SJHL)
18 Owen Guenter RW - 1 - Humboldt (SJHL)
20 Brooks Maxwell C - 3 - Red Deer (WHL)
21 Torrin White RW - 4 - Langley (BCHL)
22 Jordan Roy LW - 2 - Fort McMurray (AJHL)
24 Luke Coleman LW - 1 - Calgary (WHL)
26 Michael Clarke C - 1 - Humboldt (SJHL)
27 Michael Grant RW - 2 - Nipawin (SJHL)
34 MacKenzie Mindus LW - 1 - Grand Falls (MHL)

 

Departures:
4 Blake Orban D
11 Logan Mick LW
12 Sam McKecknie C
17 Clint Filbrandt D
19 Justin Valentino LW
25 Cameron Trott D
28 Derek Brown C
29 Garret Hughson G
33 Jonny Hogue G
34 Connor Sanvido C
47 Artsiom Kalashnikov F

 

Like the Bisons, this is a huge recruiting class. On paper at least, it is a much weaker one. They have lost their top scorer (Valentino) and two more of their top ten (McKechnie and Sanvido). Filbrandt and Orban were the core of their defence. Hughson was their starting goaltender.  They also lost AK-47!

 

They have to pray that one or more goaltenders answers the call. Taz (back for his second season) had four WHL seasons and then finished in the BCHL. Amundrud's WHL career ended 4 years ago. Since then he has had two seasons in Junior A and one in Senior AAA. Burgart is transferring from Bemidji, where he played 3 games the last 3 years.

 

The defence lost quality, but still has six returnees. The two Junior A recruits are a cut below the players they replace.

 

Up front, the best recruits are

and

. Coleman has had 4 full seasons in the WHL and scored 20 goals last year. Clarke never played major junior, but did rack up the points in Junior A (28-43-71 in 57 games last year).

 

All-in-all, I don't see the Hørny Ønes improving much if at all on their 20 points from a year ago. Their pre-season record would indicate this. They lost twice to Red Deer College of the ACAC (3-2 in overtime and 6-3) and two more times to Mount Royal (6-0 and 3-2).

 

However, the CW coaches' poll (linked) has them tied with the Bisons in 7th.  Here's the final vote total:

1. Alberta Golden Bears - 49 (7)
2. Saskatchewan Huskies - 41
3. Calgary Dinos - 36 (1)
4. UBC Thunderbirds - 29
5. Mount Royal Cougars - 28
6. Regina Cougars - 15
7. Lethbridge Pronghorns - 13
8. Manitoba Bisons – 13

 

My picks are:
1. Alberta 
2. Calgary 
3. Saskatchewan 
4. Mount Royal 
5. Manitoba 
6. UBC 
7. Regina 
8. Lethbridge 

 

I will look at each team in the CW in the upcoming days to compelete the outlooks.

The Mutts finished first a year ago before losing the conference final to the Evil Monkeys. That still qualified them for the nationals where once again their only wins were against OUA teams. En route, they eliminated the  Bluegars in the CW semi-finals. So this presents as a redemption weekend for the Bluegars.

 

MRU had respectable pre-season results, a split against Bedrock U and a sweep of Lethbridge. Meanwhile, Sask played just two games, edging out Regina before being shutout by Alberta.

Bedrock U had a very good pre-season, in fact the best one in the CW in my opinion. They started by sweeping aside Red Deer College, then went on to win single games against Regina and Manitoba while gaining splits against MRU and Alberta. There is no doubt that Mr. Slate has put a lot of effort into getting the Dinos ready for the season with 8 games. If they want to finally break through into the Top Two they'll need a pair of wins in road series like this one.

The Evil Monkeys lost a load of good players. However, they also had an impressive and bountiful set of recruits. Things took a turn, however, when newly recruited goaltender Griffen Outhouse signed an AHL deal with the Manitoba Moose. The Apes had three decisive wins in pre-season (6-2 over UBC, 6-1 over Manitoba, and 4-0 over Sask) and three close ones (two of which were OTWs). 

 

The T-irds' only two games against CW opposition were those two against Alberta. Otherwise, they won their games against BCIHL and ACAC teams whilst losing their games against NCAA teams. UBC was the last CW team to update their roster page, so I have not looked into their roster too much. However, I have noticed that they have been short-staffed in the pre-season, dressing as few as 15 skaters in some games.

icon1.gifSept 28: Six CW Teams Start Regular Season

 

Due to a football game between Canada's Team – the Hamilton Tiger-Cats – and the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, the Bison home opener series was pushed back to Saturday/Sunday.

 

I have updated the “Live Links” to reflect that the UMFM audio feed will be on the second stream both nights. Also, the links should be for Saturday and Sunday, rather than Friday and Saturday. The “Other Links” have added another story from the U of M and a series preview from the U of L.

The Dinos had eight different scorers and outshot the Banjo Cats 37-19 to coast to a victory. Matthew Greenfield got the win and Dawson MacAuley took the loss.

This was close throughout but the Bluegars assumed control in the 3rd, outshooting the Banjo Mutts 11-5 to take the win. Riley Morris stopped 19 of 23 to claim the win and Taran Kozun stopped 26 of 31 to suffer defeat. Jesse Lees and Connor Rankin scored twice each for MRU. I had these teams pegged as #3 and #4 so a close game was expected.

The British Californians held 2-0 and 3-1 leads but could not hold on. I was focused on the MRU-Sask encounter and then saw the end of this one. The Evil Monkeys seemed to be in charge when I was watching. Grayson Pawlenchuk scored the tying and winning goals. Brendan Burke stopped 19 of 22 to get the win and Rylan Toth stopped 34 of 38 for the T-irds. Each side had two PP goals on 4 attempts.

icon1.gif Team Preview: Mount Royal Cougars
 
CW-2017-MRUBanner2-116x73.jpg
 
Since the line-ups were released so close to the season, I lacked the time to do a team-by-team. So I am doing this every now and then, by the order in which the Bisons play each opponent. Now it is time to cover the MOUNT ROYAL COUGARS, aka “Bluegars”. Here's the roster:
 
Goaltenders:
31 Kurtis Chapman - 1st – Victoria (BCHL)
33 Riley Morris - 2nd – Okotoks (AJHL)
35 Wyatt Hoflin - 4th – Kootenay (WHL)
 
Defencemen:
3 Tyson Helgesen - 2nd – Spokane (WHL)/Hartford (AHL)
4 Taylor Green - 4th – Coquitlam (BCHL)
6 Allan MacPherson - 3rd – Calgary (AJHL)
7 Jesse Lees - 4th – Prince Albert (WHL)
8 Ralph Jarratt - 1st - Victoria (WHL)
16 Connor Blake - 1st - Grande Prairie (AJHL)
24 Kade Jensen - 2nd – Brandon/Victoria (WHL)
26 Riley Shamray - 1st – Dauphin (MJHL)
 
Forwards:
2 Jamal Watson - 4th – Seattle/Swift Current (WHL)
9 Hunter Zandee - 3rd - Vernon (BCHL)
10 Nic Sicoly - 1st - Aberdeen (NAHL)
11 Andrew Fyten - 1st - Swift Current/Edmonton (WHL)
12 Mitch Lipon - 3rd - Whitecourt (AJHL)
13 Josh Bly - 3rd – Kindersley/Nipawin (SJHL)
14 Keegan Iverson - 1st – Lacombe (ACHW – redshirt after pro)
17 Ryley Lindgren - 2nd – Lethbridge/Swift Current (WHL)
18 Brad Kennedy - 3rd - Halifax (QMJHL)/Weeks (MJAHL)
19 Connor Chartier - 4th – Lacombe (ACHW – redshirt after OUA)
21 Sean Richards - 1st – Everett/Seattle (WHL)
22 Brandan Arnold - 2nd – Nipawin (SJHL)
23 Nolan Yaremko - 1st – Tri-City (WHL)/Stockton (AHL)
27 Connor Rankin - 5th – Norfolk (ECHL)
28 Chris Gerrie - 4th - Lacombe (ACHW)
 
Departures:
8 Zack Henry F
10 David Stephens F
15 Colton Kroeker F
16 Austin Adamson F
20 Luke Simpson F
21 Kord Pankewicz F
27 Grant Baker D
31 Colin Cooper G
 
Let's look at the arrivals and departures on a position-by-position basis, starting in goal. Cooper's best season was his first (2.30 GAA, .913 S%, 13-5-0) and his worst was his fourth (last year, 3.03 GAA, .904 S%, 2-5-0). In between, his save percentages were .899 and .884. Morris emerged as their starter last year, so this departure should not hurt too badly. Hoflin has become a career backup. This will be his 4th year in the CW, which followed 4 years in the WHL.

 is checkered. He's played on 8 teams in 6 leagues the last 4 years, including the WHL, BCHL, AJHL, SJHL, MJHL, and BCIHL.
 
The defenceman they lost was, appropriately, defensive. Baker was 0-6-6 and a +6. He played all 28 games. So he's a loss. But with five returnees, the three replacements should be an upgrade. Jarratt had a solid career with Victoria (WHL) and Blake and Shamray were captains of their Junior A teams.
 
Up front, they have lost Stephens, their leading scorer (7-16-23) and Kroeker, tied for second (6-16-22). Even though they have three “blue chip” recruits from the Dub, this loss will hurt them.
One will notice that they have had quite a number of players coming their way after emerging from the purgatory of a season in Lacombe necessitated by the need to recover eligibility. This feature makes them somewhat of a “veteran” team. I have them picked as #4 this year.

So, after this game I tried staying away for an all-night viewing of Rugby World Cup from Japan. But, alas, I fell asleep before saving my post. So here it is as I watch the stream of Australia-Wales.

The Bison recruits in goal and on defence were blue-chip this off-season, and it showed in their season opener. They outshot the Hørny Ønes 37-26 and had control of the game from the outset. When the Horns did get shots, they seldom were able to turn it into sustained pressure. It was generally a one-and-done situation. Riley Lamb posted the shut-out in his CW debut.

On the offence, a pair of sophomores avoided the jinx. Jeremey Leipsic got his goal in the opening minute of the second period. Defenceman Mitchell Dyck got his first goal in the CW in the opening minute of the third. Jameson's line with Wasylak and Leipsic scored both goals.

Here's how they lined up:

MANITOBA BISONS

Note: Former #18 Bradley Goethals is now off the roster. With Skrumeda and Carlson moved from defence to forward, the team now has 5 forwards scratched for each game.

The rematch goes Sunday at 2:00 p.m. at the Wayne Fleming Arena on the U of M Campus.

By the way, Lethbridge has a new uniform this year which is as dark as blue can be, almost black. I'll see if a good picture is available with my Sunday report.

Bedrock U is looking good so far. This was a battle of rookie goaltenders. The Dinos had Brodan Salmond (stopped 16 of 17) and the Banjo Cats had Curtis Meger (stopped 35 of 40). Matt Alfaro scored twice and added an assist for the Dinos, giving him 4 goals and 3 assists on a very productive weekend.

The Banjo Mutts lost just 3 games last year. They could have that many this year before they sit down for crawdads and possum shanks for Thanksgiving. I called Sask to slip and MRU to rise, but this sweep and decisive scoreline is shocking. The shots were almost even (30-29 in favour of the Bluegars). The teams stuck with their starting goaltenders, and Riley Morris' 27 saves on 29 shots got him a “W”. For the Mangy Mutts, Taran Kozun stopped 18 of 24 and was yanked after that 6th goal. 2nd year backup Travis Child then stopped 5 of 6 shots. Leading the offence were Riley Lindgren (with a hattrick) and Chris Gerrie (with a pair). Of note, the Bluegars were 3-for-7 on the PP.

Matt Berlin, another rookie goaltender, made his debut with a shutout for the Evil Monkeys. This was a one-sided win, following Friday's overtime encounter. The Apes were led by Ryan Jevne and Trevor Cox, each with a goal and a pair of assists. Berlin made 20 saves for the win, and Rylan Toth stopped 33 of 38 shots in the loss. The T-irds line-up shows just 15 skaters and a goaltender dressed for the game.

BRIEF SUMMARY

1st 1:16 UL White ASST: R Maxwell, B Maxwell
1st 2:33 UM Carlson ASST: Christensen, Halvorsen
1st 9:40 UM Veloso ASST: Keane
1st 17:15 UL Guenter ASST: Clarke, Gordon

3rd 0:47 UL B Maxwell ASST: Rayman (SH)

 

An afternoon game after a night game sometimes produces an odd, offensive game. And this was one of those.

 

The Bisons made two roster changes, starting Brown over Lamb in goal and Apetagon took over from Barley in the forwards. The Hørny Ønes shifted the defense pairings a bit but dressed the same 20 players.

 

The penalties were ultimately the difference. Lethbridge was 2-for-6 on the PP and the Bisons broke even, going 1-for-5 and giving up a shorthanded goal. Each side also had a goal waived off.


After each side had an early goal, the Bisons never got untracked once the penalties started kicking in. Veloso scored on a break-away mid-period. But within seconds of a PP ending, Guenter squeezed one under Brown's pads to tie the game. That save which somehow trickles through the pads seems to be Brown's problem area. It happened on this goal, the one waived off, and in the pre-season.


The 2nd period saw Lethbridge take the lead on a point shot. Wasylak tied it on a one-timer to the top shelf, and Henry gave the Bisons on a scramble upon the end of a PP. A PP deflection allowed the Horns to tie the game at 4-4 after two.

 

After being out-of-synch for two periods, the Bisons did get it together in the 3rd. But not until after a sloppy line change on a PP in the opening minute provided Maxwell and Lethbridge an opportunity to take the lead. This was the second such occurrence in the game.

 

The CW has a bye week next. The Bisons are headed to the Excited States for some non-conference play. On Oct 11-12 the Bisons are on the Road against MRU. The next home series is Oct 18-19 against Calgary.

Colton Veloso gave the Bisons a 1-0 lead in the 1st period but from then on it was all UND. The USCHO link had the alignment for both teams. Here's the Bisons:

 

Goal:
Lamb (Brown)

 

Defence:
Henry - Christensen
Stanley    - Dyck
Pouteau    - Schioler

 

Forwards:
Tripp - Jameson - Wasylak
Keane - Skrumeda - Veloso
Barley - Thiessen - Dalke
Carlson    - Labossiere - Halvorsen
Apetagon - Harris

 

Which means that the scratches were:
1 Link 10 Skoleski 22 Leipsic 
26 Leblanc 27 Doerksen

 

The Bisons have Sunday off before facing the Omaha Mavericks on Monday night.

The Omaha game story describes the game as a 3-3 tie. However, after two overtime periods a shoot-out was held, and it went 1-0 in favour of Omaha. The Bison line-up was the same as for the UND game, except that goaltending duties were split between Tyler Brown and Jeremy Link. Brown gave up 3 goals on 16 shots, and Link stopped all 29 shots he faced (including the prolonged overtime).

 

Brief Summary:

1st 07:54 MAN-1   Jameson   (Dyck and Wasylak)
1st 12:54 UNO-1   Pulkkinen (Jones and Ward)
1st 17:19 UNO-2   Ward (Brushett and Pulkkinen)
2nd 04:27 UNO-3   Schuldt   (Conley and Abate)
2nd 10:53 MAN-2   Skrumeda (Veloso)
3rd 13:23 MAN-3   Christensen
5th SO UNO-4 Ward

The Bisons are at MRU on Friday and Saturday, and next host Calgary on 18th and 19th.

I already posted my look at the MRU roster a while back. Both sides were in the Excited States last week, and each picked up a point. The Bluegars had the more impressive pre-season and also managed a sweep of the Banjo Mutts in Saskatown to start the season. I picked them for #4 in the CW, myself.

OK, this is not the marquee matchup of the weekend. Hopefully, the games will be close at least. If one side could sweep this they would have a great bonus.

A year ago this match-up would have drawn attention from U-Hockey fans from coast-to-coast. Now people are wondering if the Evil Monkeys will torment their banjo-lovin' canine guests.

This match-up is interesting because the Dinos have been off to such a great. UBC have been fair-to-middling. Their only CW opponent so far has been Alberta. They are 3-0-0 against lower leagues, 0-2-2 against the Monkeys, and 0-2-0 against the NCAA. Hard to gauge.

In the CW it was Hockey Night in Alberta as each series was hosted by an Alberta team. The Bison game was a nail-biter. The rest were not.

Manitoba-MRU games used to be the hardest hitting games in Usports hockey. The sides got some smaller, quicker players and the games lost a little edge. However, tonight we got a bit of that back.

 

The Bisons were down to 17 skaters and two goaltenders, so the injury bug is around. They had their usual starting 6 on defence, and Riley Lamb started in goal. A notable scratch up front was Colton Veloso.

 

Quick Summary

 

1st 11:03 MC Lindgren (4) ASST: Iverson, Gerrie (PP)

2nd 2:05 MB Thiessen (1) ASST: Pouteau, Keane

2nd 5:45 MB Halvorsen (1) ASST: Leipsic, Jameson

2nd 9:00 MC Lipon (1) ASST: Zandee

2nd 14:53 MC Blake (1) ASST: Fyten, Rankin (PP)

2nd 18:32 MC Blake (2) ASST: Lindgren (PP)

3rd 3:16 MB Dalke (1) ASST: Henry, Thiessen

3rd 19:47 MC Zandee (1) ASST: Chartier, Fyten (ENG)

 

So three rookie Bisons with their first goals accounted for all the scoring.

 

Th e power plays were the difference. The Bluegars went 3-for-5 and the Bisons went 0-for-3. Riley Morris got the win with 24 saves on 27 shots. Riley Lamb took the loss with 34 saves on 38 shots.

 

The rematch is a twi-nighter starting at 3:00 MT or 4:00 CT on Saturday.

I watched the replay of this one after watching the Bison game. I am snowed in with a blizzard so I may as well stay up late and watch as many games as possible. The Evil Monkeys were by far the better team. The Mutts had some good stretches and are FAR from a weak team. But they seem like a run-of-the-mill CW team now. The Apes had five different scorers. Brendan Burke got the win with 27 saves/28 shots, and Travis Child got the loss with 35 saves/40 shots.

This was the most defensive game of the night. Bedrock U jumped out to a 3-0 1st period lead, then it was 4-1 after two. UBC then managed a paltry 3 shots in the 3rd period. Had they scored on every shot they had in the 3rd, they would have had a tie at best. The Dinos had four different goal-scorers. Matthew Greenfield stopped 19 of 20 for the win, and Rylan Toth stopped 15 of 19 for the loss.

At first this looks like a convincing win for the Hørny Ønes. However, the Kittens actually outshot them 41-31. To keep the theme of the night going, Lethbridge had four different goal scorers. Taz Burman stopped 40 of 41 for the win and Dawson MacAuley stopped just one of three shots he faced before being yanked after 4+ minutes of play. Brandon Holtby stopped 26 of 28 the rest of the way.

icon1.gifOct 12: Bisons Rebound for a Split

 

The Bisons played in one of three matinees today. I'm not a big fan of Saturday afternoon games myself. Although I could see why the travelling team would much sooner play an earlier game. Now that each team has played one series at home and one on the road, here's how Saturday night went.

A split on the road at MRU is probably going to be looked upon as a pretty good weekend for the vast majority of teams as this season wears on. This win gives the Herd consecutive splits (2-2-0) and is the first blemish on the Bluegars' record (3-1-0).

 

The game was an oddity in that the Bluegars were running up the shot clock, however the Bisons were able to respond with odd-man rushes. As on Friday night, the teams swapped leads from time to time. However, the Bisons pulled ahead for good in the 2nd period, where they scored four goals, the last three unanswered, to take a 5-2 lead into the 3rd. The official stats say that the 3rd period shots were 17-1 in favour of MRU, which seems incorrect. In any event, MRU could draw back two goals but that was all.

 

The Bisons were again upset with the officials. MRU had two 5-on-3 powerplays and in this one Jonah Wasylak got the 10 minute misconduct for arguing. In the end, MRU was 3-for-8 on the PP and the Bisons were 2-for-5. However, it must be noted that the first Bison goal came 2 seconds after a PP expired so it was basically generated by PP pressure.

 

Riley Lamb got the win, and it appears that he has won the starter's job. He stopped 37 of 41 shots. Riley Morris suffered the loss with 6 saves on 11 shots through two periods. He was yanked in favour of Wyatt Hoflin in the 3rd period, and he stopped the lone shot credited.

 

Quick Summary
1st 13:54 MC Lees (3) ASST: Kennedy (PP)
1st 19:30 MB Leipsic (2) ASST: Veloso Henry 
2nd 0:23 MB Veloso (2) ASST: Keane Henry (PP)
2nd 6:26 MC Lindgren (5) ASST: Lees Chartier (PP)
2nd 8:35 MB Dalke (2) ASST: Thiessen Tripp 
2nd 11:43 MB Carlson (2) ASST: Henry Halvorsen 
2nd 14:46 MB Keane (1) ASST: Jameson Leipsic (PP)
3rd 0:12 MC Jensen (1) ASST: Richards Iverson 
3rd 4:54 MC Lees (4) ASST: Rankin (PP)

 

As you can see, Colton Veloso returned to the Bison lineup and found his way into the scoring stats.

 

Next Friday the Bisons return home to face the Bedrock Dinos, whilst MRU will visit the Evil Monkeys.

The T-irds had a 4-1 lead 12 minutes into the 2nd period. Then Mr. Slate must have devised a comeback strategy. Once again, UBC had just 16 skaters and two goaltenders dressed. They were 4-for-5 on the PP! Matthew Greenfield stopped 24-of-28 for the win, and Rylan Toth stopped 32 -of-37 for the loss.

 

The Bedrock Boys are now 4-0-0 and coming to Winnipeg next weekend. UBC is 0-2-2. However, they have played the two best teams (Alberta and Calgary).

The Banjo Cats once again recorded 41 shots yet lost. That's what happens when you fall behind 7-1 before mounting a comeback. Kyle Gordon scored twice for the Horny Ones. Taz Burman stopped 36-of-41 for the win. Regina again went through two goaltenders. Curtis Meger stopped 12-of-16 before being yanked in the early 2nd period. Brandon Holtby came on in to stop 8-of-11 and was tagged with the loss.

 

Lethbridge is now doing better than expected, with a record of 3-1-0. At 0-4-0 Regina already has a lot of ground to make up in the 24 remaining games.

As noted, lots of links have yet to be uploaded. I saw this as it was the only evening game. Sask played pretty well, as the overtime aspect would suggest. Nevertheless they are now 0-3-1. At least they are a point ahead of their provincial rival! The Evil Monkeys are 4-0-0. Matt Berlin stopped 24 of 26 shots for the win, and Taran Kozun stopped 34 of 37 for the loss. Fun Fact: Sask was 25-3-0 last year. They are now assured of a worse record after just four games.

In the Town of Bedrock the Dinos are off to the best start of any team in U-Hockey. They have swept Regina (now 0-4-0) and UBC (now 0-2-2). While the Bisons are 2-2-0, their opponents are both now 3-1-0 with, naturally, their only losses coming against the Bisons.

 

Last year, the Bisons held their own against the Dinos, going 2-2-0. Over the last 4 years, the Bisons are 9-6-1 against Calgary.

 

The Dinos have 6 players at or above a point-per-game pace: Matt Alfaro (5-4-9), Graham Black (2-6-8), Jordan Xavier (2-4-6), Ryan Gagnon (0-6-6), Coda Gordon (1-4-5), and Kaden Elder (2-2-4), all of whom are in the CW's top 20 scorers. Meanwhile, two Bisons are at that level: Adam Henry (1-5-6) and Jeremy Leipsic (2-3-5).

 

Matthew Greenfield has started 3-of-4 for the Dinos and has impressive stats (3-0-0, .910 S%, 1.89 GAA).

 

Meanwhile, Bison rookie Riley Lamb has taken over the starter's role and has impressive stats himself (2-1-0, .915 S%, 3.03 GAA).

 

Last weekend, Josh Tripp dressed for his first games as a Bison. That leaves Devon Skoleski and Matthew Leblanc as the only players yet to dress.

The Hørny Ønes are likely satisfied with their record, whilst the Banjo Mutts are bewildered with theirs. I must say that the Mutts did not look bad against the Evil Monkeys last weekend, and they have played two strong teams. But let's face it – they lost twice at home to MRU and the Bisons just split on the road against MRU. The Mutts need 4 points here.

The Bluegars are off to a nice start. However, in the last 4 years, the Evil Monkeys are 15-1-0 against MRU. And the Monkeyes aren't looking too shabby so far, either. This is a home-and-home series. Are MRU deserving of my praise? This series will go a long way in categorizing them.

Both sides are winless, true, but the T-irds cannot be criticized too much. They have played the top two teams in the OHT35, so 0-2-2 is not bad. The Banjo Cats have some room for optimism, since they recorded 41 shots in each game last weekend. Both sides are desperate for points. UBC holds a massive 13-3 edge over Regina in the last four years.

The Bedrock Dinos showed why they're #1 in the OHT35. In short, the Bisons played pretty well but to beat the Dinos they will need the odd break and some big performances. A couple big, strong forwards would help as well.

 

Here's how they lined up:

Quick Summary

 

1st 1:12 CD Gordon (2) ASST: Hines Vanstone

1st 8:00 MB Tripp (1) ASST: Dalke Thiessen

1st 8:44 MB Keane (2) ASST: Veloso Jameson (PP)

2nd 8:52 CD Elder (3) ASST: Alfaro Gordon

2nd 15:29 CD Elder (4) ASST: Gordon Alfaro

3rd 4:45 CD Cook (3) ASST: L Fisher (PP)

3rd 19:02 CD Elder (5) ASST: Gordon Shearer (PP)

 

W: Greenfield (12 saves, 14 shots)

L: Lamb (45 saves, 50 shots)

 

The shots were 25-13 through two periods, and the score 3-2, both in favour of the Dinos. The Bison forwards did not manage a load of shots but did generate two high quality opportunities off passing plays, and two of those were converted.

 

In the 3rd period the shots were 25-1 for the Dinos. The TSN Turning Point would have been the 4-2 goal. After that one, the Dinos locked down the Bisons.

 

The rematch goes Saturday at 2:00 p.m.

I know it's early, but this was a must-win for the Banjo Mutts. In fact, Saturday's rematch is also a must-win game. The threat of going from 25-3 to a cellar-dweller would not sit well in Hillbillyland. Carson Stadnyk led the way with 2 goals. Taran Kozun got the win with an 18 save shut-out. Taz Burman got the loss after being yanked in the 2nd period, stopping 13 of 16 shots. Nikolas Amundrud finished with 22 saves on 24 shots.

Well this one will get the tongues wagging nation-wide. Like I said in pre-season, MRU recruited what they needed. I never pegged them to win 3 straight road games against Sask and Alberta, however. That Bison split last weekend sure looks good now, eh? The Evil Monkeys did rack up the shots, outshooting the Bluegars 39-28. Brendan Burke got the loss after a 1st period pulling when he stopped just 5 of 8 shots. Matt Berlin stopped 16 of 19 shots in relief. Wyatt Hoflin stopped 36 of 39 for the W. Connor Chartier scored twice for MRU, including a shorthanded penalty shot. MRU hosts Saturday's rematch.

On a night when the Evil Monkeys lose at home, the game gets pipped for the title of upset-of-the-night when the previously winless Banjo Cats steal the spotlight. The Tweety-Birds warned that they thought they saw a dangerous puddy-tat but nobody listened. Chalk one up for the Felines! Brand Holtby got the win, with 38 saves on 39 shots. Patrick Dea stopped 23 of 25 in defeat.

Well isn't that something. The Bisons end the Dinos' winning streak in hockey while simultaneously kicking the living crap out of them in football across the street.

The only roster change for the Bisons wass that Tyler Brown replaced Jeremy Link as backup goaltender. No biggie. The other change was Devon Skoleski and Lucas Skrumeda switching lines. Skoleski scored twice, including the winner on a 2-on-1 with Adam Henry in 3-on-3 overtime. Skoleski missed all of the games up until now, so it was nice to see him back in the lineup. Skrumeda was paired with Ryan Carlsom (also a converted defenceman) and Nathan Halvorson on an effective checking line.

 

Despite the lop-sided shot clock on both nights, for all but about 15 minutes on Friday night, there was never more than a one-goal gap between the teams. The Bison goals were generally nice passing plays being converted. At the other end, Bedrock U must be concerned that possession and territory generates lots of mediocre shots. Usually when you see this many shots on goal, there are several periods where the game looks like a perpetual power play. Not the case here.

However you look at it, the Bisons have 4 points in 4 games against what have been the hottest two teams in the CW. So this has to be the decent start they needed with such a roster laden with rookies.

 

The Bisons host UBC next weekend on Saturday night and Sunday afternoon. Meanwhile, the Dinos are runnin' back to Saskatoon.
