Chiefs grab 6-4 win over Portland

The Spokane Chiefs won for the first time at home this season as five different players scored goals in a 6-4 win on Tuesday night in the Spokane Arena. Spokane is now 3-2-1-0 on the season with three games coming up over the weekend.

Portland scored the first goal of the game, a power play marker, at 1:30 of the first period when Frazer McLaren sent the rebound of a Colton Sceviour shot into the back of the net. Spokane would tie it up with a Michael Grabner goal, his third of the year, at 3:38 with the assist going to Chris Bruton.

Seth Compton's rocket one timer from the left circle gave the Chiefs a 2-1 lead. Grabner pulled the puck off the wall and slid it to Compton who tallied his first of the season. Bruton earned his second assist of the night.

Portland made it a 2-2 game through one when Rob Klinkhammer scored their second power play goal of the game at 12:45.

Spokane pulled away in the second with three goals, the first coming from Judd Blackwater. David Rutherford broke down the left wing on a two-on-one and, after shifting past a defender, slipped the puck in front a driving Blackwater. The goal came at 4:09 of the period. Evan Haw's blast from the top of the right circle gave the Chiefs a power play goal and a two goal lead at 6:26. Bruton completed a three point night with an assist. Portland pulled within one at 15:09 as Nick Hotson scored.

Blackwater's second of the night came unassisted as he swiped the puck away at the Portland blueline and snapped it high stick side on Kurtis Mucha.

The only scoring of the third period came in the final minute with an extra attacker on the ice for Portland. The Winter Hawks pulled within one at 19:08 as Michael Sauer scored from in close, but the Chiefs sealed the deal with an empty netter with just 30- seconds remaining. The goal was unassisted.

Dustin Tokarski won his second consecutive start with a 34 save effort.

The Chiefs will host the Everett Silvertips on Friday night and celebrate Boomer's birthday. The game will be the second in as many Fridays between the two as Spokane earned a 2-1 shootout win last week in Everett. Spokane will travel to Kelowna on Saturday and Seattle on Sunday.

Tickets to all home games are available by calling the Chiefs office at (509) 535-PUCK or TicketsWest at (800) 325-SEAT.

Swift Current swamps Cats

Oh, that’s right. Scott Bowles is still a goaltender on this team.

And, oh, right again, they have a new star forward in Devin Setoguchi.

One more — that’s correct, the Cougars have a first-round NHL draft pick, Ty Wishart, who is supposed to anchor the defence.

Mueller, Hamill power up

In this season of change in the Western Hockey League, where new rules have made special teams increasingly important, the Everett Silvertips have taken a somewhat novel approach to ensure success on their power play.

A major one involves moving skilled center Peter Mueller to the point where he must also be concerned about defense.

Mueller, of course, can do just about anything he wants in hockey.

Tribe Drops Third Straight

Two new guys look good, Cole Simpson bites his old team as the Raiders top the Warriors 5-3 Tuesday.

It was a tale of two totally different Moose Jaw Warrior teams in the same game last night.

The Tribe played quite possibly their sloppiest period of hockey all year in the first, spotting the Prince Albert Raiders 4 unanswered goals.

The Warriors were never able to tie it up, as they lost 5-3, but last night's second period was one of their best all season.

Moose Jaw out-shot P.A. 27-7 in the second period, but managed just 5 shots in the first, and 3 in the third, for a total of 35.

Biggest positive out of last night's 3rd straight loss was the two newcomers.

Keith Voytechek had an assist on an Andre Herman goal, while Matt Isbister scored two in his Warriors' debut.

Isbister was the club's first line centre, playing between Riley Holzapfel and Kenndal McCardle.

The 20 year old talks about his first goal as a Warrior, orchestrated by Holzapfel.

"I was just trying to get to the net, he had a couple wizard-like moves, I was trying not to get mesmorized, and then he threw it over there and I just tried to get my stick on it before it hit the ice and luckily I did."

Again, last night's final score 5-3 for the Prince Albert Raiders, dropping the Warriors to 2 and 5, with former Warrior Cole Simpson scoring a goal and adding a helper for his new club.

Warriors host the Regina Pats Sunday at 7 in their first meeting of the season.

Sens decide it's time to pay Czech

If the Lethbridge Hurricanes go out for pizza after the game tonight, we know who’s buying.
“Yes, actually they are joking around, they know me and stuff like that, but I don’t know, probably not,” defenceman Tomas Kudelka said Tuesday, hours after signing a three-year entry level contract with the Ottawa Senators.
The 19-year-old native of Zlin, Czech Republic was a fifth round selection (136th overall) of the Senators in the 2005 National Hockey League draft. A two-time World Junior participant for the Czech Republic and now a second-year veteran of the Western Hockey League, inking a pro deal was the next stage in his evolution as a hockey player.

Captain already comfortable

From the relative splendor of Columbus Blue Jackets training camp to a bus hurtling across Saskatchewan, Kris Russell adjusted quickly to life back in the Western Hockey League and back with the Medicine Hat Tigers.
“The first couple days were a little difficult just adjusting to the time change,” said the Tigers 19-year-old captain on Tuesday following his return to The Arena after a prolonged road swing through the Eastern Division.
The Tigers (6-2-0-0) next play on Friday when they host the Prince George Cougars, 7 p.m. at The Arena.
“Getting my legs underneath me, it was definitely a little tough, but the guys made it easy on me,” said Russell.
“It’s easy to jump back into this organization,” said the returning WHL top defenceman award winner.
Russell scored twice and rung up five points in six games after rejoining the team on Sept. 30 in Swift Current. But the Tigers are hardly starving for the power-play specialist’s offensive capabilities.
As a team, Medicine Hat sits tied for third in the goals-for category with 31 in games. They trail the unbeaten Vancouver Giants (46 goals in nine games), Lethbridge (33 in nine) and sit even with Kootenay (31 in seven).
Russell’s re-assignment from Columbus adds another dimension to the Tigers offence, but the signed 19-year-old defenceman is hardly the only threat on the team.

Ams not content with quick start

It took a dusty trip through the archives to reveal that the Tri-City Americans have never been off to a better start through the first six games of a season.

At 5-1-0-0 and on a five-game win streak, the Americans are pleased with their start, but coach Don Nachbaur is not about to put the cart before the horse.

"I think we have worked hard and improved in a lot of areas, but we can't be content," Nachbaur said. "Collectively as a group, we haven't played 60 minutes. We have things to work on to be a good team."

Since the Americans opened their first Western Hockey League season in 1988 (a 2-4 start), they have had two starts of 4-1-1 (1989-90 and 1999-2000), one at 3-2-1 (1998-99) and five seasons when they began 3-3.

Fast start paces Raiders past Tribe

Andy Smith is used to scoring goals in the Civic Centre while wearing white, but there was something quite a bit different this time.

Smith, a rookie centre with the Prince Albert Raiders, scored two goals in a 5-3 victory over the Moose Jaw Warriors Tuesday, dropping the Warriors’ record to 2-5 and leaving the Tribe in last place in the WHL’s East Division.

It was a homecoming of sorts for the 17-year-old Rosetown product who played the last two seasons with the AAA Midget Warriors while getting some spot duty for the Raiders in that time.

Raiders ponder solution to extra 20-year-old

There is a bit of a bind across the Western Hockey League this season and Prince Albert Raiders are among the teams feeling it.

The reason is the excess of quality 20-year-olds across the league.

It almost sounds like a good problem to have. That is, until it comes time to move one of them.

“Last year there was a shortage of over-age players, this year there’s an abundance,” Raiders general manager Donn Clark said prior to a game against the Warriors on Tuesday in Moose Jaw.

Wheaties to salute Special Olympians

Brandon, Manitoba -- The Western Hockey League's Brandon Wheat Kings, in conjunction with Convergys, has announced plans to recognize a number of western Manitoba athletes for their outstanding achievements at this year's Special Olympic Summer Games that were held in Brandon.

The hockey club plans to Salute ten Special Olympians during the first intermission of Friday's game at the Keystone Centre between the Wheat Kings and visiting Regina Pats.

In addition to local bowlers David Walwyn and Art Haggstrom and swimmer Jason Norminton, the Wheat Kings will recognize members of the Silver Medal winning baseball team - Daryn Thomson, Wayne and Shannon Bauche, Craig and Krista McLaren, Mathew Gero and Harvey Chambers.

While Norminton took home three bronze and a silver medal, Walwyn captured two silver and a bronxe in 10 pin bowling. Haggstrom meanwhile won two gold and a silver and will be a part of Team Canada at the International Special Olympic Games in Shanghai in 2007.

The 2006 Special Olympic Summer Games in Brandon turned out to be one of the best ever, attracting over 1,400 athletes, coaches and Mission staff from every province and territory across Canada. Athletes competed in the sports of five and ten pin bowling, Slo pitch softball, acquatics, athletics, power lifting, rhythmic gymnastics and soccer.

As of this year, over two hundred western Manitoba athletes are registered in Special Olympics and a number of them will be in attendance at Friday's WHL game, courtesy of Convergys.

At Convergys, we enable organizations everywhere to enhance the value of their relationships with customers and employees. It's why we have become the global leader in customer management, billing and HR services, providing outsourcing, services, consulting and software solutions to leading companies around the world.

On the ice, Friday's game will be the first of three in three nights for the Wheat Kings, who travel to Saskatchewan for games Saturday night in Saskatoon and Sunday in Prince Albert. Brandon enters the weekend with a record of four wins and four losses. In games played at the Keystone Centre, Brandon is 3-1-0. Slovakian born right-winger Juraj Simek and Colorado Avalanche second round draft choice Codey Burki share the club scoring lead with six goals and 12 points while left-winger Mark Derlago and defenceman Dustin Kohn have nine points each.

The Pats enter the weekend with a record of 4-3-0 and are coming off a 2-0 victory over Prince Albert. Linden Rowat turned aside 20 shots to earn the shutout and won the club's number one job between the pipes when Regina sent veteran David Reekie to Everett for a fifth round draft choice.

TIckets to Friday's game are on sale now at the Keystone Centre box office, by calling 726-3555 or online at ticketmaster.ca.
