’Canes getting comfortable with winning ways

Being a good team is one thing — believing you’re a good team is another.
Lethbridge Hurricanes have been a good hockey team through the first three weeks of the Western Hockey League season but Friday night’s 4-0 win over the Kelowna Rockets was testament to the fact this group also believes in itself.
The Rockets, winners of just one game, entered the night as one of the lowest-scoring teams in the league and were in the midst of a tough road swing. Lethbridge was waiting at home, eyeing an upcoming week that has them playing three divisional games — the perfect scenario for a letdown.
Through one period, despite the ’Canes’ 1-0 lead, the Rockets were playing with Lethbridge until the Hurricanes looked around the room and responded, doing what good teams do: enforcing their will and winning a game they should. ’Canes captain Kris Hogg said part of it is fitness and part of it was just using the speed advantage they trust.

Ams strike fast in win over Chiefs

Spokane Chiefs owner Bobby Brett displayed $100,000 in cash to the fans before Saturday's game against the Tri-City Americans.

Brett promised the money would be distributed to season ticket holders if the Chiefs did not make the playoffs. He then sent the money back to the bank.

After the Americans ruined the Chiefs' home opener with a 5-1 win at Spokane Arena, Brett may want to keep a few dollars handy just in case someone wants to cash in early.

"There was no passion," said Spokane coach Bill Peters, whose team fell to 2-2-1-0. "Our showing was very disappointing. But this is a good rivalry, we will be better the next time we play."

The Americans (5-1-0-0) used their speed, getting a pair of goals and an assist from Taylor Procyshen and two goals from Erik Felde, and their penalty kill was a perfect 7-for-7.

Warriors Wheelin' and Dealin' on the Weekend

The Moose Jaw Warriors shopping for some new talent on the weekend. The Tribe traded Dylan Chapman and a future draft pick for two new faces.

The Moose Jaw Warriors shipped third year Warrior defenseman Dylan Chapman to the Chilliwack Bruins in exchange for Bruins left winger Keith Voytechek on Sunday afternoon.

Following that, the Warriors made another move picking up 20 year old Matt Isbister of the Calgary Hitmen for a 3rd round draft pick in the 2008 Bantam Draft. Isbister joins 20 year old Warriors Jesse Zetariuk and Steven Gillen to solidify all three 20 year old positions on the team.

Voytechek will dress as a Warrior for the first time tomorrow night at the Civic Centre when the Warriors host the Prince Albert Raiders.
