After a weekend with the Hillbillies, nothing is better than getting a chance to pile on the team bus and get the heck out of there and back to civilization. And doing so with an exhibition split is not so bad, either.
The Bisons dressed every player who sat out Friday's game, except for returnee Del Cowan. Based on who was with whom when goals were scored, my best guess is that the line-up was like this:
1 Joe Caligiuri – 34 Deven Dubyk
20 Brandon Lockerby - 6 Brock Sutherland
24 Travis Bobbee - 5 Lee Christensen
4 Jeremy Schappert - 3 Blair Osiowy
22 Darren Bestland
27 Tyler Feakes - 29 Luke Cain - 11 James Henry
23 Tyler Dittmer - 19 Ian Duval - 26 Blair Macaulay
9 Matthew Lowry - 16 Jesse Paradis – 25 Paul Ciarelli
12 Austin Lauder - 15 Craig Scott – 21 Brett Chartier
F: 21 Del Cowan – 10 Brendan Rowinski - 18 Dylan Kelly - 14 Nathan Green
D: 2 Dane Crowley
G: 35 Jesse Deckert
Unless I hear otherwise, I will assume that Borse, Schmidt, and Friesen are not in camp this year.
One note on the LeagueStat Bison Roster link, they listed all new recruits as defencemen.
Each of the three goaltenders in camp got two periods of play over the weekend. In this game, Caligiuri played the 1st and Dubyk got the last two.
The Bisons blasted out of the gate and outshot Regina 17-7 in the 1st period, but only held a 1-0 lead on a goal from Tyler Feakes.
The Herd then scored four unanswered goals in the 2nd to take firm command of the game. Jesse Paradis scored two, and Ian Duval and Brock Sutherland added singles.
The Bisons shifted to D in the 3rd, with no goals scored and outshooting Regina 7-6. This sets up a return match-up next weekend when the Banjo-Cats come to Winnipeg for a double-header.
The team sites have not posted game stories as I enter this post.

ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS 2

Johnny Lazo and Jordan Hickmott scored 1st period goals to give the Evil Monkeys all they needed to post their 4th straight win over ACAC teams.

The Dinos walked into Lethbridge and clearly the H0rny Ones were lacking viagra. The shots were still close (29-28). Calgary's PP was 4-for-7 on the night.
Of note, a CW Mini-Summary
