Off-shore gambling website worries CHL

The Canadian Hockey League has asked its lawyers to look at an off-shore internet gambling website where bets can be placed on major junior hockey games and the Memorial Cup.

The Austrian website bwin.com invites bets on OHL, WHL and QMJHL games and the Memorial Cup, which is troubling to a league in which its players are part of a teenage demographic that spends a lot of time online.

“Surprised would be a fair term and disappointed more than anything,” CHL commissioner David Branch said Wednesday from Toronto.

“We’re looking at options. Gambling is an issue we cannot choose to ignore.”

Betting on sports is a grey and in many ways unregulated area. Office hockey and football pools are common.

Time to sing Yeo Canada

Can Hitmen d-man Dylan Yeo carry a tune better than he carries the puck?

We'll find out tonight.

The rugged rearguard can't stickhandle all that well these days as he continues to rehab a badly broken wrist.

But the injury, which will keep him on the shelf for a few more weeks, hasn't affected his vocal cords, which will be on display tonight at the 'Dome as Yeo will sing the national anthem prior to the Hitmen/Kootenay Ice game (7 p.m.).

Giants putting on a clinic

What you saw at CN Centre on Wednesday was no accident.

The Vancouver Giants do not get outshot. They do not panic. They do not quit.

What you saw in the 5-4 shootout win by the Giants, a game the Prince George Cougars had in hand with a 4-1 lead with five minutes left to play in the third period, was the product of a belief system, ingrained through successfully dealing with trials and tribulations.

Medicine Hat ties motivate duo

Not that they should need it, but there is a little extra motivation on the line tonight for Brandon Wheat Kings forwards Bryan Kauk and Matt Hallick.

While final lineup decisions won’t be made until today, Kauk is slated to face his former team while Hallick could be suiting up against his hometown team when Brandon (2-3-0-0) battles the Medicine Hat Tigers (5-1-0-0) at the Keystone Centre tonight at 7:30.

Kauk, one of a number of veteran Wheat King forwards still searching for their first goal five games into the season, began his WHL career with the Tigers in 2004-05 before being traded to the Kamloops Blazers and then to the Wheat Kings early last season.

Under new rules, T-bird steps it up

There are few hockey players more articulate than Bretton Stamler, so it's not too surprising he has been one of the first to adjust to the new rules in the Western Hockey League.

The new regulations crack down on hooking, holding and interference, and have already turned several games into power-play contests.

Stamler, a fourth-year defenseman for the Seattle Thunderbirds, has managed to stay out of the penalty box while adding a goal and two assists in Seattle's 1-1-0-1 start to the season.

Brule descends depth chart

After a disappointing and pointless pre-season, North Vancouver's Gilbert Brule has been demoted to the Columbus Blue Jackets' fourth line.

Forget Rick Nash, Freddie Modin and Anson Carter as linemates. Brule will skate today against the Vancouver Canucks between enforcer Jody Shelley and Czech veteran Jaroslav Balastik.

Jackets' coach Gerard Gallant insisted this week he wasn't unhappy with the former Vancouver Giant but consider this: journeyman Mark Hartigan and undrafted rookie Geoff Platt are slated to centre the top two Columbus units.

Unbeaten, but not Unquestioned

It's the best possible start.

The Everett Silvertips opened the season 4-0, outscoring their opponents 14-4 for the best start in franchise history. As a result, Everett is currently ranked second in the entire Canadian Hockey League, behind only defending Western Hockey League champion Vancouver.

So everything's perfect, right?

Well, maybe not quite.

WolfPack optimistic despite lack of offence

Eight goals in seven games is bad, no matter what sport you’re talking about.

But the TRU WolfPack men’s soccer team has so far gotten away with a lack of scoring.

TRU, 2-4-1, is sixth in the B.C. Colleges Athletic Association, one point ahead of the cellar-dwelling UBC-Okanagan Lakers. That’s the bad part.

The silver lining comes in the fact the WolfPack is just three points out of a playoff spot and four points out of second. The Douglas Royals are running away with the league title with a 5-0-2 mark but, after that, no team has been too impressive.

The WolfPack gets a chance to get back in a playoff spot on Saturday, when it meets the Kwantlen Eagles (3-2-1) in Surrey.

Sizing up the competition

There are some instances where size does matter - and WHL goaltending is no exception.

But faced with the Blazers' recent losing skid, size comes to represent more than breadth between the posts. Instead, the magnitude of solid puck stopping has come to embody internal competition and the hunt for an elusive win.

"For me, I really need to work on long shots, since I'm not as big as some of the other guys out there. It's hard for me to find the puck through all the traffic," said Blazers goalie Dalyn Flette after watching four goals slip through the cracks in 18 shots during Tuesday night's 5-4 overtime loss to Kelowna.

Blazers expect payback time

Hockey fans are in for a raucous affair this weekend when the Kamloops Blazers play the Chilliwack Bruins tomorrow night at Interior Savings Centre.

These two teams combined for 263 penalty minutes and seven game misconducts when they met in the pre-season.

Kamloops Blazer Travis Dunstall won't be winning any popularity contests inside the Bruins dressing room, after running over Chilliwack goalie Andrew Pinsent in the last outing.

Cries from the Bruins bench claiming Dunstall made the hit intentionally ingnited the fireworks, and the parade to the penalty box began.
