Bisons and CJOB announced
a partnership. Details are sketchy but it sounds like live radio coverage will be limited to football for now. Still, coverage is a good thing. There have been no announcements of further recruits to those announced on May 9th. But the rumour mill includes:
- defenceman - Spokane Chiefs (WHL)
- He's a 6'5" defenceman with four years in the WHL behind him. He would be another solid addition to the defence core.
- left wing - Moose Jaw Warriors (WHL)
- Most of his WHL career was with the Vancouver Giants. Last season he combined for 16 goals and 71 points split between Vancouver and Moose Jaw. His high was 21 goals. So two good forward recruits, but they could really use a centre.
- left wing - Saskatoon Blades (WHL)
- With the team seemingly building another solid blueline, a few good forwards are in order. Paradis had 15 goals and 49 points for the Blades, so while not a sniper he should add some skill up front.
The Saskatoon Star-Phoenix
has a story on this:
"We keep tabs of our Manitoba players that have left our province to play in the Western Hockey League,” Sirant said, noting he first approached Blades head coach and general manager Lorne Molleken about Paradis in December.
“As Lorne agreed, we both thought he did a real good job with the Blades. Jesse’s a solid player. He’s a hard-working guy that is a good two-way forward.”
Paradis was picked up off of waivers by the Blades last September after being released by the Moose Jaw Warriors just before the start of the season.
The 6-foot-1, 190-pound left-winger set career highs with 15 goals and 49 points while playing in all 72 games. He was named the Blades’ most sportsmanlike player after registering 32 penalty minutes.
Paradis was key member of the team’s penalty kill and was counted on defensively.
Sirant believes Paradis’s “versatility” will allow him to compete for third- and fourth-line minutes.
“All players coming from the Western league, it’s an adjustment coming into Canada West,” he said. “We expect Jesse to make that transition and make a good contribution for us in his first year.”
The university will welcome Paradis into the fold next week when its recruitment class is officially released.
The Tweety-Birds have had three announcements covering four new recruits:
from the Kootenay Ice (WHL),
Linden Saip and Jessi Hilton
(from Surrey of the BCJHL and Sherwood Park of the AJHL respectively), and
from the Seattle Tweety-Birds (WHL).
Evil Monkeys announced
that their new head organ grinder is Ian Herbers, formerly of the Milwaukee Admirals. The

H0rny Ones announced
the recruiting of three WHL grads: goaltender Damien Ketlo (Lethbridge Hurricanes) and defencemen Cason Machacek (Seattle Thunderbirds) and Hayden Rintoul (Victoria Royals).
