Summer News


The Bisons have not announced any exhibition games yet. However, both the North Dakota and Bemdiji State schedule pages have the Bisons listed as opponents on the weekend of October 6-7. Since North Dakota can no longer use the Fighting Sioux moniker they have to revert to a letters-only logo for now. But since everybody likes beavers the Bemdiji logo is staying put.

Also, the UBC schedule page has a home-and-home series with Simon Fraser listed for September 21-22. They played at the Christmas break last year. The Tweety-Birds will also scoot down to Denver for 3 games in 3 days against Denver, Colorado College, and Air Force. Calgary used to make a trip like that.

The regular season will start on September 27-29. Adding the foregoing to the stuff I gathered last time from Regina and Alberta and we now have this exhibition schedule:

Sept 4 Alberta @ Augustana
Sept 6 Augustana @ Alberta
Sept 7 Alberta @ Calgary
Sept 8 Calgary @ Alberta
Sept 14 Tournament at Regina - teams tba
Sept 14 SAIT @ Alberta
Sept 15 Alberta @ SAIT
Sept 21-22 Brick Invitational at Edmonton - teams tba
Sept 21 Regina @ Manitoba (7:00 pm)
Sept 21 Simon Fraser @ UBC
Sept 22 Regina @ Manitoba (2:00 pm)
Sept 22 UBC @ Simon Fraser
Oct 6 Manitoba @ North Dakota (time tba)
Oct 6 UBC @ Denver
Oct 7 Manitoba @ Bemidji State (5:07 pm)
Oct 7 UBC @ Colorado College
Oct 8 UBC @ Air Force

Last season's rumours about Laurentian getting back into hockey have been confirmed in both the CIS and OUA websites.

The Jets signed UNB grad Hunter Tremblay for the Ice Caps. He was with the Oklahoma City Barons in the Oiler system last year.
