    This was the opening night of the Regina Tournament. There isn't much news about these game out there. The SAIT Twitter had a blurb and all teams' S&R pages have a score without a link, at least as I post.

    So both Bison wins so far have been 2-1 games, and they are now 2-3-0 in the pre-season. It would be nice if someone in Regina tweeted out a picture of the lineup cards.

    On Saturday, it will be S.A.I.T. v Regina at 1:00 CDT and Manitoba v Saskatchewan at 4:30 CDT.

    The first game was played Thursday in Cowtown and the second was Friday in Edmontown. The two wins give Bedrock U the tournament title, and a 4-0-0 record in pre-season. It's Yabba Dabba Doo time. The Evil Monkeys are now on a two game losing streak! MRU and Alberta will fight it out for second place on Saturday.

    Time to bring back the asterisk for links that are missing as I post but may show up later when you read. There were no game stories nor boxscores/summaries posted for either game. Only the Manitoba Twitter had a tweet. In any event, I guess if medals were being awarded, the Mutts claimed gold, the Bisons settled for silver, and the Kittens got a bronze. The Condoms got nothing but experience.

    Without any other teams posting even a tweet, here's a photo of everything I could obtain:


    So returning Zach Franko and rookie Devon Skoleski paced the scoring for the Bisons this weekend. Rookies also did very well on the scoring in the UK tour as well.

    Next weekend, the Bisons have just the one game, that being a Saturday matinee against Regina. The week will start with York's sad commemorative tour of Saskatchewan.

    Oddly, the above-linked story from the Ottawa Citizen is their story on Sask's recruiting. I have no idea why such a story would be printed there.

    Good to see that the Apes uploaded boxscores to the CW site, joining UBC. The win gives the Evil Monkeys 2nd place in the 3-team tournament. Here's the last of a string of tweets from the evening:
    With a depleted line up the boys get it done tonight. Final score 7-3. @bmagee18 with a heck of a night gets the star for the Bears and Watson for the Cougars. Off to Athabasca next weekend for games against @UofA_AugVikings & @NAITMensHockey
    Alberta's site has yet to add their Athabasca exhibition games to their posted schedule. MRU acknowledges that they face the Dinos, and not Minnesota State, on Wednesday. However, their official schedule has yet to make the correction.

    This was cut back from two games to one in order to allow the Banjo Cats to play York on their tour in memory of Mark Cross, their former player who went in to coaching only to perish in the Humboldt tragedy.

    The Bison roster page has been updated. Several new rookies are listed, who were not included in the recruiting announcements. I'll need to do some profiles on them. In all, there are 12 new recruits. The odd thing is that the team is low on numbers. Although bursting with four goaltenders, they have just 21 skaters.

    Here's the roster to date:

    Goaltenders
    1 Justin Paulic
    30 Tyler Brown R
    34 Dasan Sydora
    35 Byron Spriggs

    Defence
    2 Adam Henry
    3 Sean Christensen
    11 Mitchell Dyck R
    23 Mackenzie Dwyer R
    24 Thomas Lenchyschyn R
    25 Lucas Skrumeda
    27 Carter Doerksen R

    Forwards
    4 Kamerin Nault
    8 Liam Bilton
    9 Zach Franko
    10 Devon Skoleski R
    12 Nick Zajac
    14 Thomas Freeman R
    15 Keaton Jameson R
    16 Dawson Martin R
    18 Garrett Armour R
    21 Brett Brooks
    22 Jeremey Leipsic R
    26 Matthew Leblanc R
    28 Brett Stovin
    29 Jonah Wasylak

    Those eligible to return but nevertheless departed include:

    Defencemen
    9 Douglas
    11 Sharonov
    16 Heinrich

    Forwards
    13 Laurencelle
    15 S Bowles
    18 St. Croix
    19 Spencer
    20 Keane
    22 B Bowles
    26 Lisoway

    Though most of those were frequent scratches, St. Croix was the leading scorer and Laurencelle was oft-injured but was the CW rookie-of-the-year two years ago. My guess is that there are a couple of bodies yet to be added.

    R indicates rookie

    OUT-OF-TOWN SCOREBOARD

    There were two mid-week games for CW teams this week, followed by a pretty full slate of games to come on the weekend.

    The Bluegars hit the win column to go 1-2-0 in their final pre-season game. The Dinos move on to face York and Sask on the weekend. They are now 4-0-1 in the pre-season.



    YORK LIONS 2
    REGINA COUGARS 3

    (in overtime)

    Links:
    York: [S&R] : [Twitter]
    Regina: [Game Story] : [Twitter]


    This was the opener of York's memorial tour in honour of alumnus Mark Cross, one of the Humboldt victims. This game was played in his hometown, Lumsden, Sask. Regina is now 2-1-0 in pre-season. This was York's first game.

    ELSEWHERE



    YORK LIONS (0-1-0)
    CALGARY DINOSAURS (4-0-1)
    SASKATCHEWAN HUSKIES (2-0-0)

    This was not planned (I don't think) but over three days a de facto round-robin tournament is being played. Here's the schedule:

    Sep 21 Calgary v York (in Humboldt)
    Sep 22 Calgary at Saskatchewan
    Sep 23 York at Saskatchewan



    SIMON FRASER CLAN (1-0-0)
    TRINITY WESTERN SPARTANS (0-0-1)
    U.B.C. THUNDERBIRDS (3-1-0)

    These games finish the "Captains' Cup" pre-season series. SFU already beat TWU 4-3 in overtime last weekend. Holy Trinity is a CW member, but do not compete in the hockey league. The Clown are floundering in the States in a conference without a hockey league. Here's the weekend schedule:

    Sep 21 Simon Fraser (BCIHL) at U.B.C.
    Sep 22 Trinity Western (BCIHL) at U.B.C.



    LETHBRIDGE PRONGHORNS (2-0-0)
    LAKEHEAD THUNDERWOLVFES (0-0-0)

    The U-Cup hosts will enter the regular season with no games against a CW opponent. They started with a sweep of Red Deer College and now it's off to Thunder Bay for a traditional weekend series.

    Sep 21 Lethbridge at Lakehead
    Sep 22 Lethbridge at Lakehead



    ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS (2-1-1)
    UA AUGUSTANA VIKINGS (1-0-0)
    N.A.I.T. OOKS (0-1-1)

    The Evil Monkeys are taking part in the Athabasca Tournament. MacEwan is also taking part but not currently slated to play the Monkeys. Here's the schedule:

    Sep 21 Augustana v Alberta
    Sep 22 MacEwan v NAIT

    Sept 22: BISONS WIN CONVINCINGLY



    REGINA COUGARS 2
    MANITOBA BISONS 5


    Links:
    Manitoba: [S&R] : [Twitter] : [Tweet]
    Regina: [S&R] : [Twitter*]


    It was nice to see my first live hockey of the season. Unfortunately, I never noticed the game time change from 3:00 to 2:00. So I missed two 1st period Bison goals. Since the Bisons wore jerseys with a black number on a brown background (the CW has a rule whereby the home team wears light/dark in alternating seasons now), and Regina had yellow numbers on a white background, it was hard to tell who was out there. Also, my pen ran out right away, forcing me to use my cell phone to make notes. This is the best I could figure.

    MANITOBA BISONS

    Goal
    35 Spriggs (1 Paulic)

    Defence
    23 Dwyer 11 Dyck
    25 Skrumeda 27 Doerksen
    24 Lenchyschyn 3 Christensen

    Forwards
    9 Franko 28 Stovin 8 Bilton
    18 Armour 16 Martin 14 Freeman
    15 Jameson 21 Brooks 2 Henry
    22 Leipsic 10 Skoleski 26 Leblanc

    Scratches
    4 Nault 12 Zajac 29 Wasylak
    30 Brown 34 Sydora

    REGINA COUGARS

    Goal
    30 Holtby 31 MacAuley

    Defence
    2 Hilsendager 5 Burns
    22 Eisler 24 Hicks
    27 Riddle 7 King

    Forwards
    12 Stevely 11 Odelein 29 Campbell
    14 Coughlin 13 Frei (with various others)
    8 Anderson 16 McPhee 17 Kosloski
    20 Duperreault 10 Eskra 23 Miller

    Scratches (one must have dressed)
    4 Schacher 9 Chaulk 15 Lech
    18 Adams 19 Marr 21 Kreklewich
    25 Nagel 28 Peel 32 Zborosky
    35 Herringer

    Since I missed the first period, all I can say is the scorers from the 2nd and 3rd:

    3-0 Garrett Armour - Top shelf over the glove on a one timer from Thomas Freeman.

    4-0 Carter Doerksen - A tip-in on a cross-the-slot passing play.

    5-0 Zach Franko - A replica of the 4-0 goal which went in as the prior goal was being announced.

    5-1 Connor Odelin - A power-play goal broke the shut-out.

    Penalty shot - Adam Henry was being used as a forward in this game and was hauled down on a break-away. Dawso9n MacAuley made the stop.

    5-2 Tristan Frei - Another power-play goal when time was almost up.

    The overall impression is that the Bisons have added a lot of quick, smaller forwards who made Regina run around. Let's see how they do as the competition will get better very quickly.

    The defence was under almost no pressure. Spriggs had no more than two tough saves to make. Were they good, or does Regina lack offensive punch?

    The Bisons are off to the Town of Bedrock next weekend, the to the Excited States after that. The next home action is October 12th and 13th against the Evil Monkeys.

    OUT-OF-TOWN SCOREBOARD

    On Friday night, there were just four CW teams in action, one against the ACAC, one against the BCIHL, and two against OUA teams. The Saturday night games will be updated later.

    This was part of the Athabasca Tournament, which also includes NAIT and MacEwan from the ACAC. Maybe one day Athabasca will have a team of their own. Not much is posted on this game, and that makes sense. The Monkeys aren't bragging, and their side-campus doesn't need to be shamed. The linked story is about their new WHL recruits. They only have two this year. That's all they need, due to a bumper crop of returnees.

    Sept 22: EVENING SCORES

    With the Bisons playing a matinee, I did not have to wait for the other games to finish before posting. So here's what happened Saturday night.

    OUT-OF-TOWN SCOREBOARD

    Links:
    Boxscore: [UBC] : [LeagueStat]

    Twitter: [UBC]


    This concluded the "Captains' Cup" series, in which UBC went 2-0, the SFU Clown went 1-1, and Holy Trinity pulled up the rear at 0-2. The Spartans were off to a 2-0 lead 2:20 into the 2nd period, but the T-irds stormed back to tie the game before the 2nd period ended then won going away. Shots were 30-20 on the night. I guess one could say of this series that the results were respectable for the BCIHL but their teams are still a ways away from being CW calibre. In all, UBC went 5-1-0 in pre-season after starting with a loss.

    Sask: [S&R] : [Twitter*]


    All I know comes from the Dinos' Twitter. Sask scored two powerplay goals to tie and then win the game. Sask is now 3-0 in the pre-season, and finishes with what should be the final game at The Rutherdump on Sunday against York. Meanwhile, the Dinos return to the Town of Bedrock where they open the season next weekend against the Bisons.

    Lakehead: [Game Story] : [Twitter] : [Tweet]


    Lethbridge held a 5-3 lead in the 3rd period before blowing the lead and ultimately losing in overtime. The linked story from LU says this is their first pre-season sweep since 2010. Jeesh. In any event, two tight losses for the 'Horns leave them at 2-1-1 for the pre-season, albeit without having played a team from the CW.

    Sask never even posted a score on this one. It only got tweeted in response to a question! This game brought the curtain down on The Rutherdump. May it R.I.P.

    So York goes 0-3-0, even losing to last-place Regina. One has to wonder about their prospects for the season. Sask ends the pre-season unblemished at 4-0-0.

    The regular season kicks off in the CW and the AUS this week, whilst the OUA gets in one more week of non-conference/exhibition play.

    Last year, Calgary had the 3rd best record in the CW, but use of an ineligible player early in the first half of the season cost them 8 points in the standings, and had them slump to 5th. The Bisons capitalized and claimed 3rd place.

    The regular season was considered a disappointment in the Town of Bedrock last year. They had a much ballyhooed recruiting class, that never seemed to get on track. They are once again a highly touted team, but I say let's wait and see. In pre-season the clobbered MacEwan from the ACAC twice, split with MRU, and beat Alberta. That would suggest they are capable.

    The Bisons are becoming somewhat less typical, recruiting more and more small, quick players all the time. IMO they need some size in their defence this year. They were often exploited there last year. I have seen just their lone home exhibition game, and they did handle Regina well. The Dinos, however, are a much different side. Losing four good players who were eligible to return (St. Croix, Laurencelle, Lisoway, and Heinrich) has hurt the Bisons.

Personally, I believe that the Mutts lost a lot, not easily replaced with new recruits. Still, they had the best pre-season record of any USports team.

    The Bisons gave up early goals in the 1st and 2nd periods, but by the end of the 2nd period had found their form to tie the game at 2-2. One goal came from a veteran (Brett Stovin) and one from a rookie (Devon Skoleski). The stage was set for a good 3rd period, however the Dinos took control with three unanswered goals. Jordan Papirny got the win (with 14 saves) and Byron Spriggs took the loss (with 34 saves). The rematch goes Saturday at 2:00 MDT, 3:00 CDT.

    Whenever a team makes a trip to the Town of Bedrock, a split is considered a decent weekend. So that aspect of the weekend should make Bison fans very happy.

    However, was this a case of capitalizing on a shaky goaltender? Matthew Greenfield stopped just 11 of 15 shots before an empty-netter closed the scoring.

    Oddly, this was the night of the players whose last name starts with "S". Skoleski, Skrumeda, and Stovin led the Bisons to a 3-0 lead by the 2nd period. Sydora started in place of Spriggs in goal, and stopped 32 of 35 to get the "W". Sheen (with two) and Shearer scored for the Dinos, and Stovin's empty-netter closed the scoring. The only non-S contribution was from Brooks, whose 3rd period goal gave the Bisons a 4-2 lead which lasted until the end of the game.

    Stovin and Skoleski also scored on Friday night. I'd like to see them focus on Stovin's offensive side this year.

    The Bison scratches were skaters Kamerin Nault, Jonah Wasylak, and Thomas Lenchyshyn, and goaltenders Justin Paulic and Tyler Brown (who's not expected to play much, if at all, this year). It looks like they lined up like this:

    Defence:
    25 Skrumeda 27 Doerksen
    3 Christensen 2 Henry
    23 Dwyer 11 Dyck

    Forwards:
    12 Zajak 15 Jameson 21 Brooks
    9 Franko 28 Stovin 8 Bolton
    26 Leblanc 10 Skoleski 22 Leipsic
    18 Armour 16 Martin 14 Freeman

    When PP and PK were out there a fair bit, the 4th line and Leblanc had very little ice time.

    Next weekend the Bisons are off to the Excited States (North Dakota and Omaha to be precise), before opening at home against the Alberta Evil Monkeys on October 12th and 13th. The Dinos, meanwhile, will muse over their pending extinction whilst relaxing with a bye week.

    Indeed, it is hard to sweep a team. The Bluegars had it all their way on Friday night but this matinee was a lot tougher. Last season, the Banjo Cats seemed to throw in the towel once the losses were piling up. Let's see how they handle this season. They acquired some better players but are still at least a notch behind most CW teams. In this one, pair of PP goals kept Regina in it. Riley Morris stopped 19 of 21 to get the win, and Dawson MacAuley stopped 33 of 36 to suffer defeat. 3rd year defenceman Jesse Lees scored the OT winner, his 2nd point of the night.

    It is never easy to sweep on the road, even in Lethbridge. So the T-irds must be thrilled with the sweep. In an interesting stat, over the series the Hørny Ønes were 1-for-11 on the power play and UBC was 5-for-10. Both sides switched goaltenders, giving a rookie his debut. Patrick Dea stopped 29 of 31 for the win, and Taz Burman stopped 45 of 48 at the other end. All season long we will be contemplating what a massive upset it would be to see Lethbridge upset a conference champion when they host the U-Cup.

    It was funny that every other team in the CW had two games under their belts before these two teams even stepped on the ice for game 1. This was a special night for the Apes. As defending conference and national champions they had banners to raise. They were scratching their armpit with one hand whilst holding a banana in the other, taking an occasional break to swing from the other banners at the Clare Drake Arena.

    The celebratory mood seemed to lift the Monkeys early on, as they mounted a 2-0 lead with goals in the opening minute of each of the 1st and 2nd periods. From there it was all downhill, as five different Mutts helped put the boots to the Primates. In net, 2nd year Taran Kozun answered the call with 30 saves on 32 shots for the win. Meanwhile, Brendan Burke took the loss with 27 saves on 32 shots.

    Of note, the Monkeys dressed just 19 players due to a rash of injuries.

    The Monkeys were down to 16 skaters for this rematch. However, the head organ grinder must have offered plenty of bananas to the survivors to get them going for this one. The turning point IMO was during a 2nd period PP situation. The Mutts were down two and went on the PP, during which time the Evil Monkeys scored twice. Game Over. Zach Sawchenko got a turn in goal for the Apes, and faced just 15 shots in claiming the win. Taran Kozun started once again for the Mutts, stopping 30 of 35 shots. Taylor Cooper had 2 goals and an assist to lead the Monkey offence. So the Mutts had to be satisfied with a split, a quick drink from the toilet, and a bus ride back to Saskatown.

    This is a bye week in the CW. But the Bisons, Lethbridge, Mount Royal, and Alberta are headed south for games against various NCAA teams. All trips are Saturday/Sunday format.

    For the Bisons, they are off to play two teams from the NCAC. It is a strong conference. Last year UND defeated UNO in the quarter-finals. Omaha is coached by Mike Gabinet, former coach of the NAIT Ooks. UND is ranked 11th in one poll, and 12th in another.

    In this week's news, there are three stories linked from GoBisons.ca. First, rookie Devon Skoleski was the male UofM athlete-of-the week, based on scoring in both games last weekend. Second, the 123 Bison athletes to be recognozed as Academic All-Canadians beats the previous UofM record of 117. The total includes 8 hockey players off last year's squad. And third, we have a preview story which includes a blurb on the Bison Broads raising their national championship banner on Friday night.

    Around USports, Dinos' coach Mark Howell will coach the All-Stars against the Team Canada Juniors in December. And UNB was ranked #1 in the first Top Ten. Oddly, York got votes after going 0-3-0 on their trip to Sask.

    Oct 6: BISONS LOSE IN OVERTIME


    MANITOBA BISONS 2
    NORTH DAKOTA FIGHTING HAWKS 3

    (in overtime)

    Links:

    CHN: [Scoreboard] : [Boxscore]
    UND: [Stats (pdf)] : [Game Story] : [Live Stats]
    UofM: [Schedule/Results] : [Twitter] : [Tweet]


    The Fighting Hawks, or Suddenly-Peaceful-Sioux, built a 2-0 lead, lost it in the 3rd period, then won it on a PP goal in overtime. That's the abridged version.

    The UND website is not what it used to be. At one time they provided links to legible boxscores or summaries, video highlights, and a game story or two. Now their team links for live stats were trash. In some ways, it was even worse than that pathetic rubbish put out by USports. The version of the live stats page was totally different if viewed on a desktop, tablet, or cell phone. There were no lineups on the desktop version, for example.

    At the end of the day, I would recommend the College Hockey News (CHN) boxscore linked, and the UND game story. The Bison Twitter account also had updates, as shown in this picture:


    The CHN site also displayed the usual line combinations, and the complete line-up:

    Forwards:
    21 Brooks - 15 Jameson - 12 Zajac
    22 Leipsic - 28 Stovin - 8 Bilton
    29 Wasylak - 10 Skoleski - 26 LeBlanc
    18 Armour - 16 Martin - 14 Freeman

    Defence:
    3 Christensen - 2 Henry
    25 Skrumeda - 24 Lenchyschyn
    23 Dwyer - 11 Dyck
    5 Paradoski

    Goal:
    35 Spriggs (1 Paulic did not play)

    Scratches:
    4 Bilton - 9 Franko - 27 Doerksen
    30 Brown - 34 Sydora

    Byron Spriggs stopped 52 of 55 shots, to be named 1st star. Uniquely, both Bison goals were scored by players of the hard-nosed variety, Thomas Lenchyschyn and Jonah Wasylak. This was Wasylak's first game back in over a year.

    The extra defenceman dressed for the Bisons was Brandon Paradoski. He went to St. Paul's then played Junior B for the Selkirk Fishermen and then MMJHL for the Seven Oaks Raiders. I guess that since Sean Christensen has done so well, the team is somewhat less afraid to dip into the MMJHL for a depth player. I'll have to do full profiles of the new recruits brought in after the recruiting season had apparently ended.


    This photo of the overtime winner also gives us a glimpse of the new Bison dark uniform.

    The Bisons ventured further south for game two of the weekend and had a tough night in Omaha. Brett Brooks scored their only goal. Byron Spriggs did not suit up, leaving goaltending to be split between Justin Paulic (stopping 28 of 32 shots) and Dasan Sydora (stopping 22 of 24 shots).

    Here's how they lined up:

    Goaltenders:
    1 Paulic - 34 Sydora

    Defence:
    2 Henry - 25 Skrumeda
    5 Paradoski - 24 Lenchyschyn
    23 Dwyer - 11 Dyck

    Forwards:
    21 Brooks - 15 Jameson - 12 Zajac
    22 Leipsic - 28 Stovin - 8 Bilton
    29 Wasylak - 10 Skoleski - 26 LeBlanc
    18 Armour - 16 Martin - 14 Freeman

    Scratches:
    3 Christensen - 4 Nault
    9 Franko - 27 Doerksen
    30 Brown - 35 Spriggs

    Hopefully those scratches will recover in time to face the Monkeys in next weekend's home opener, Friday and Saturday at 7:00 p.m.


    Paulic played two periods, Sydora played the 3rd.

    There were also two additional Saturday night picture Tweets posted. Here they are, with a sample picture.

    No shootouts in the NCAA. After the OT was done, this one was called a draw. The Monkeys went with Kenny Cameron in goal. They were outshot 16-3 in the 1st period, but the game was still scoreless. In the 2nd period, the Monkeys scored two early goals and outshot Air Force 16-11. However, they could not hold the lead and left the USA kissing their sisters.

    Star-Phoenix: [Good-bye rusty Rutherford, hello Merlis Belsher Place (rp @ Leader-Post)]


    The Rutherdump is disappearing and the whole CW, not just the UofS, is thrilled about that. Rust falling from the rafters ought to have been the final straw years ago. The big difference as far as hockey is concerned is that the ice surface will be full size, not the mini-ice the Huskies have been used to having. Will this prompt the recruitment of smaller players, and better skaters? I also see that it will have indoor plumbing, a rarity in Saskatown.

    This week in the CW features a quirk in the schedule in that all the teams who went 1-1 in the opening round face one another, the two 2-0 teams face one another, and the two winless teams also face one another.

    In this matchup between the Bisons and Evil Monkeys, the teams (on the surface) have had similar runs the last two weeks. Both started the regular season with a split against a team with a pre-season victory over their opponent (Calgary split with Manitoba and beat Alberta in pre-season, and Sask did the same in reverse). Both were 0-1-1 in the USA last weekend (albeit the Monkeys had a tie, not an OTL).

    One issue to observe is both sides' line-ups. Last weekend the Bisons were without Zach Franko and Kamerin Nault from their first line, and the Monkeys were without their whole top line. With so many new players, an dmost coming from Junior A, the Bisons lack depth in comparison to the Monkeys.

    In disappointing news, Findlay's “Tuesday Morning Skate” and podcast are now at the Usports site, instead of CUSN. (Why couldn't it be at both?) Since the Usports site is trash, it might be hard to get it. We'll see.

    This will be an interesting match-up between two sides who took last weekend off. Both were impressive on the Friday night of the opening weekend before crashing to Earth on Saturday. Sask had the best pre-season in all of the CIS (USports). Is Calgary a true contender, as pundits speculate? Or are they better viewed in a group with Manitoba, UBC, and MRU?


    LETHBRIDGE PRONGHORNS (0-2-0, 2-5-1, OHT35 #32)

    This is a golden opportunity to get a win! IMO, Regina has recruited fairly well the last two years and are not terrible. They're just not as good as the top 6 teams in the CW. Lethbridge had some off-season turmoil but it seems like they are not far off of last year's pace.


    MOUNT ROYAL COUGARS (2-0-0, 3-4-0, OHT35 #14)

    This is the battle for first place! However, unless the schedule changes to give these teams lots more games against Regina and Lethbridge, I don't see this holding. Realistically, these two are aiming to solidify a playoff berth and then shoot for home ice advantage in the quarter-finals.

    After the conference bye week and the end of non-conference play, the teams of the CW got down to some hotly contested games Friday night. Included was a dandy game at the Wayne Fleming Arena where a boisterous crowd, which included the Engineering Symonized Marching Band, cheered the Bisons on to a win over the Evil Monkeys. The Herd is now 2-1-0 and tied for 2nd place, whilst the Primates are 1-2-0 and tied for 5th.

    Here's how they lined up:

    MANITOBA

    Goal:
    35 Spriggs (34 Sydora)

    Defence:
    2 Henry 3 Christensen
    25 Skrumeda 24 Lenchyschyn
    11 Dyck 23 Dwyer

    Forwards:
    21 Brooks 15 Jameson 12 Zajak
    9 Franko 28 Stovin 8 Bolton
    4 Nault 10 Skoleski 26 Leblanc
    29 Wasylak 16 Martin 14 Freeman

    Scratches:
    1 Paulic 5 Paradoski 18 Armour
    22 Leipsic 27 Doerksen 30 Brown

    ALBERTA

    Goal:
    35 Sawchenko (31 Cameron)

    Defence:
    6 Craig 4 Kirichenko
    5 Fram 22 Carroll
    7 Lange 8 Rehill

    Forwards:
    36 Cox 12 Philp 27 Miske
    37 Nickles 14 Kieser 11 Cooper
    17 Hart 23 Clarkson 24 Tomchuk
    16 Pawlenchuk 13 Owre 26 Sanford

    Scratches:
    1 Burke 9 Legault 18 Baillie
    19 Magee 21 Kimmett 40 Lineker
    52 Charif

    For the first time in a while, Alberta iced a full roster. Also, the Bisons got back a lot of injured players.

    The Monkeys amassed a 2-0 lead in the 1st period with a pair of PP goals by Cole Sanford. The preponderance of penalties favoured Alberta. The Bisons turned it around in the 2nd period. Devon Skoleski (with his 3rd) scored on the PP and Brett Stovin (with his 4th) tied it up, as the Bisons outshot Alberta 12-10 in the period.

    Midway through the 3rd period, Nick Zajac scored his 1st of the season and suddenly it looked like the Bisons could do it. The Monkeys threw a lot of bananas at Spriggs, but he was quite up to the task. The shots were 38-28 favouring Alberta. The three stars were Spriggs, Zajac, and Sanford.

    This was a tight battle to christen the new Merlis Belsher Place in Saskatown. So a shootout seems appropriate. I saw the ending on CanadaWest.tv after getting home from the Bison game. Lots of crazy penalties and aggressiveness. Saturday's rematch should be quite the tussle. Taran Kozun got the win (29 saves) and Jordan Papirny took the loss (46 saves). There were eight different goal-scorers.

    The Banjocats scored with 93 seconds left to tie the game and there was much joy amongst the Feline Hillbillies. But the H0rny Ones Scored again with just 4 seconds left to claim the win. Lethbridge was only able to dress 16 skaters and two goaltenders. Garret Hughson made 31 saves to claim the win, and Dawson MacAuley had 28 saves in the loss. Lethbridge vaults out of the basement with the win, at 1-2-0, and Regina is 0-2-1.

    This was the only 2-goal loss of the night in the CW, and the last goal was into an empty net. Rylan Toth got the win, with 35 stops on 36 shots. Colin Cooper suffered the loss, with 32 saves on 34 shots. Austin Vetterl had two goals for the T-irds, including the empty-netter.

    The Monkeys got off to a quick start, leading 3-0 after the 1st. The Bisons attempted to rally but to no avail.

    Here's how they lined up:

    MANITOBA

    Goal:

    Mackenzie Dwyer scored for the Bisons. Zach Sawchenko got the win with his 19 saves. Byron Spriggs took the loss, with 27 saves on 31 shots over two periods. Dasan Sydora played the 3rd and stopped all 9 shots he faced.

    Both sides are now 2-2-0 and in a 4-way tie for 3rd place. Next weekend the Bisons host Regina and the Monkeys visit the Bluegars.

    A sweep for the H0rny Ones! Regina outshot them 43 to 21. But Garrett Hughson was on, and Michael Herringer was not, as goaltending made the difference. The last one was into an empty net, as six different players scored.

    After an extensive pre-season, every team in the CW has now hosted and travelled for a weekend series. The Bisons had a marginally sub-standard exhibition record, but a split in the Town of Bedrock followed by a split against the Evil Monkeys is the envy of most teams in Usports. All told, the Herd is tied for 3rd place with three other teams.

    Regina, meanwhile, are not a bad team but the best they could manage thus far is an OTL in games against MRU and Lethbridge (the teams who were 6th and 7th last year). Being swept at home by the Hørny Ønes is not part of the recipe for success.

    In the recent past, the Bisons have had the Cougars' number. The Bisons beat the Banjocats 5-2 in a September exhibition game, made to look close when the 'Cats scored a late goal. In 2017-18, the Bisons were 4-0-0, with Regina getting one point for an OTL. Over the past 4 years, the Bisons are 14-1-1 (Regina is 2-13-1) in head-to-head games.

    Regina's top four scorers include two veteran defencemen: Tyler King (2-2-4) and Landon Peel (1-2-3). The other two are rookie forwards, Arthur Miller (1-2-3 in 3 games) is hoping to write a story called “Death of a Playoff Drought”, and Connor Chaulk (1-2-3) has done well. Last year's rookie-of-the-year, Zak Zborosky, missed the opening weekend and has one assist in two games. Goaltenders Dawson MacAuley (4th year) and Michael Herringer (2nd year) have split the duties thus far. They have both had their moments. Herringer wound up 4-12-0, 5.11 GAA, .863 S% last year. This year he's 0-2-0, 5.01 GAA, .833 S%.

    At this early stage, four points gets a guy tied for 7th in conference scoring, and the Bisons have four forwards in that group. Brett Stovin (4-0-4) used to get mostly assists, veterans Brett Brook and Nick Zajac are both 1-3-4, and newcomer Keaton Jameson is 0-4-0. Another newcomer, Devon Skoleski, is off to a 3-0-3 start. Defenceman Lucas Skrumeda was off to a great start and also had somepoints (1-2-3 in 3 games) before being injured on a hit from behind last Friday.

    When all is said and done, Regina will steal some points from various teams this season. The Bisons will hope it starts next week.

    UBC is off to a 4-0 start, but this is the weekend where things get real. The Dinos knocked off the T-irds in last year's playoffs. I suspect that Bedrock U is on their way to a top four finish. However, they need to win series like this one to get there. The Friday game starts at 11:00 a.m. MDT, as part of a school promotion.


    LETHBRIDGE PRONGHORNS (2-2-0, 4-5-1, OHT35 #20)

    The Banjomutts' position in this series is akin to the Bisons' position in the Regina series. Having played Alberta and Calgary, they are off to a 3-1-0 start. But points lost here could damage them down the road in the race for a top-two finish needed for a bye to the semi-finals.


    ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS (2-2-0, 6-4-2, OHT35 #4)

    The Monkeys are vulnerable right now. In pre-season they split with UBC (albeit with an OTL) then split a 3-way round-robin against Calgary and MRU. In the regular season they split with Sask and Manitoba. The Bluegars, in turn, were swept by UBC and swept Regina. In this home-and-home series, it could be said that the Bluegars should feel the pressure to not just steal a point, but to get a split like everybody else.

    This was the proverbial "trap game" for the Bisons. The intensity level was half (or less) than it was for the Alberta series a weekend ago. Combined with a series of bad bounces and a hot goaltender and just like that the Banjocats have their first win of the season.

    Here's how they lined up:

    MANITOBA

    Goal:
    35 Spriggs (1 Paulic)

    Defence:
    2 Henry 3 Christensen
    23 Dwyer 11 Dyck
    24 Lenchyschyn 5 Paradoski

    REGINA

    Goal:
    31 MacAuley (35 Herringer)

    Defence:
    2 Hilsendager 7 King
    28 Peel 5 Burns
    27 Riddle 22 Eisler

    Forwards:
    23 Miller 13 Frei 32 Zborosky
    10 Eskra 8 Anderson 12 Stevely
    16 McPhee 9 Chaulk 14 Coughlin
    20 Duperreault 17 Kosloski 19 Marr

    Scratches:
    4 Schacher 11 Odelein 18 Adams
    21 Kreklewich 24 Hicks 29 Campbell
    30 Holtby

    The 1st period was a quick pace with lots of shots but no goals, Regina holding a 16-13 lead in shots.

    While still scoreless in the 2nd period, the Bisons started to take control of the game and went to the PP. However, Kitten Zach McPhee drifted what should have been a non-dangerous shot past Byron Spriggs. Arthur Miller completed the story of the 2nd period by making it 2-0 on a nice passing play flowing from an Adam Henry turnover.

    The 3rd period got off to a rough start. Brandon Paradoski, making his first start in a regular season game, was knocked down in the corner and rather than hold the puck, he passed it into the slot directly to Regina's Corey Kosloski. That made it 3-0, and sent the Bisons into scramble mode. Lots of chances were generated, but only Brett Brooks notched a goal.

    Bad give-aways were the theme of the night for the Bisons. There were at least a half-dozen glaring ones.

    In the end, Dawson MacAuley's 36 saves led to Kittens to their first win of 2018-19.

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

    The Evil Monkeys had a narrow escape in this one. The Bluegars are having tough luck, so it will seem. I might have to watch the replay of this on CanadaWest.tv.

    The Banjomutts are clearly off to the best start in the CW. Garret Hughson stopped 49 of 54 shots in taking the loss for the Hørny Ønes. Taran Kozun faced just 13 shots for the shutout. He could have been selling dog biscuits in the stands.

    Manitoban: [Bisons mauled by Cougars]

    The Bisons started this one dominating the Kittens. Kamerin Nault and Adam Henry scored 1st period goals to give the Herd a 2-0 lead heading to the intermission. They managed to amass the lead despite being shorthanded 3 times.

    The Bisons started shorthanded in the 2nd as well, but the 2-0 lead lasted until 15 minutes into the 2nd period. Dasan Sydora got his 2nd start of the season and held the fort. But the 18 shots he faced made a goal inevitable. Both goals were scored by defencemen (Tyler King and Brennan Riddle). The 2nd goal sailed over Sydora's right shoulder from the blueline. Sometimes you see why goalies these days are over 6 feet tall.

    So with the game tied heading to the 3rd period, the Bisons couldn't get a break. They were given 3 more penalties and were quite outraged over non-calls, such that one of the penalties called on them was a bench minor. In any event Zak Zborosky nothced himself a natural hat-trick to start the 3rd period to turn the game around. The Bisons launched some intense pressure of their own at the end but an empty net goal stopped the comeback.

    Here's how they lined up:

    MANITOBA

    Goal:
    34 Sydora (35 Spriggs)

    Defence:
    2 Henry 3 Christensen
    23 Dwyer 11 Dyck
    24 Lenchyschyn

    Forwards:
    9 Franko 28 Stovin 8 Bolton
    29 Wasylak 15 Jameson 12 Zajak
    22 Leipsic 10 Skoleski 4 Nault
    18 Armour 14 Freeman 26 Leblanc
    21 Brooks

    Scratches:
    1 Paulic 5 Paradoski 16 Martin
    25 Skrumeda 27 Doerksen 30 Brown

    I believe that Brooks was injured early on and I only noticed him once.

    REGINA

    Goal:
    31 MacAuley (35 Herringer)

    Defence:
    2 Hilsendager 7 King
    27 Riddle 5 Burns
    28 Peel 22 Eisler

    Forwards:
    23 Miller 13 Frei 32 Zborosky
    14 Coughlin 9 Chaulk 16 McPhee
    10 Eskra 12 Stevely 8 Anderson
    20 Duperreault 17 Kosloski 19 Marr

    Scratches:
    4 Schacher 11 Odelein 18 Adams
    21 Kreklewich 24 Hicks 29 Campbell
    30 Holtby

    Dawson MacAuley stopped 18 of 21 shots for the win, and Sydora stopped 34 of 39 in the loss. Kamerin Nault had two goals for the Herd.

    The Bisons fall to 2-4-0, and the Banjocats jump to 2-3-1. The Bisons are away to MRU next weekend.

    That illusory 4-0-0 start for the T-irds has come crashing down. The standings in the CW have tightened up considerably this weekend. Patrick Dea stopped just 19 of 27 shots for the T-irds and Matthew Greenfield stopped 29 of 31 for the win. Three Dinos scored two goals each (Mitch Cook, Bradley Schoonbaert, and Chris Rauckman).


    MOUNT ROYAL COUGARS 2

    The Monkeys scored with just 14 seconds left to force overtime, while on a PP and with an empty net. So two OTWs for the Apes gives them a somewhat deceptive 4-2-0 record. Kenny Cameron stopped 18 of 20 shots for the win, and Colin Cooper stopped 37 of 40 shots for the loss. Curtis Miske's winning goal was his second of the game.

    Taran Kozun had 12 saves for his second consecutive shutout. Taz Burman stopped 55 of an incredible 59 shots for the loss. Garrett Hughson came on to play just over a minute and stopped two more. That's a lot of shots for the Hørny Ønes to allow. Levi Cable scored twice for the Mutts.

    Every now and then there comes a story about the return of hockey to Newfoundland. Here's the latest!

    When M.U.N. was known as the Beothucks they played local senior hockey until 1968-69 when they joined the AIAA (forerunner to the AUS). They returned to senior hockey in 1976-77 to 1978-79, and then were back to the AUAA (as it was then called) for three more seasons until folding the program.
