Default Sept 13: Herd Lose Opener in Saskatown

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



MANITOBA BISONS 1
ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS 6

UofA: Linescore
UofA: Twitter
UofM: S&R


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.




TRINITY WESTERN SPARTANS 3
U.B.C. THUNDERBIRDS 5

TWU: Game Story


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.

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)
35 Curtis Meger - 1 - Kootenay (WHL)

Defencemen:
2 James Hilsendager - 2 - Kelowna (WHL)
4 Isaac Schacher - 4 - Drumheller (AJHL)

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)
16 Linden McCorrister - 1 - Brandon (WHL)
17 Turner Ripplinger - 1 - Estevan (SJHL)
18 Tyler Adams - 2 - Nipawin (SJHL)
19 Bryce Platt - 1 - Estevan (SJHL)
20 Ben Duperreault - 3 - Notre Dame (SJHL)
21 Tyler Kreklewich - 2 - Drumheller (AJHL)
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.

Default Sept 20: Shootout Loss on Friday Night


REGINA COUGARS 4
MANITOBA BISONS 3

(in a shootout)

Links:
Summaries: LeagueStat : CW HockeyTech : UofM


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:

21 Kreklewich 19 Platt 14 Coughlin

Scratches
4 Schacher 8 Anderson 16 McCorrister
18 Adams 31 MacAuley 32 Barnstable

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.

Luke Harrison led the Dinos with two goals, including the winner. Brodan Salmond got the win (32 stops ion 35 shots). Brendan Burke gave up two goals on five shots in the first period before being yanked. Matt Berlin stopped 21 of 23 shots to take the loss in relief. The teams head south for Saturday's rematch.

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.

REGINA COUGARS 1
MANITOBA BISONS 2

Summaries: LeagueStat : CW HockeyTech : UofM


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:

MANITOBA BISONS

2 Hilsendager 7 King
10 Eskra

Forwards
21 Kreklewich 14 Coughlin 11 Odelein

20 Duperreault 29 Campbell 19 Platt
23 Miller 13 Frei 12 Mickoski

Scratches
8 Anderson 18 Adams 28 Peel
30 Holtby 32 Barnstable

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 Coleman and Clarke. 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.

MOUNT ROYAL COUGARS (0-0-0, 3-1-0, OHT35 n/a)
SASKATCHEWAN HUSKIES (0-0-0, 1-1-0, OHT35 n/a)


Links:
➤ MRU: [Men's hockey 2019-20 season preview]
➤ UofS: [PREVIEW: Huskies open 2019-20 slate at home against Cougars]


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.



CALGARY DINOSAURS (0-0-0, 6-1-1, OHT35 n/a)
REGINA COUGARS (0-0-0, 1-3-0, OHT35 n/a)


Links:
➤ UofC: [Curtain rises on 2019-20 season in Regina]
➤ UofR: [Cougars finish off preseason with road split at Manitoba]


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.



ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS (0-0-0, 5-1-0, OHT35 n/a)
U.B.C. THUNDERBIRDS (0-0-0, 3-3-1, OHT35 n/a)


Links:
➤ UofA: [Golden Bears Hockey season preview]
➤ UBC: [T-Birds open Canada West season against defending champs]


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.

Default Sept 27: 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.
