Aug. 17: Bison Euro-foes Have Started Playing


The teams the Bisons are facing (or may be facing in the tournament) during their European tour have started playing and have made more signings.

The schedule links for most teams still do not have exhibition games posted yet. But two opponents have a list from the Sportforen.de message board, which seems to have it all for German teams.

Starbulls Rosenheim 3
EC Villacher SV 4

(in shoot-out)

When the Starbulls face the Bisons, it will be their 4th game of the season. Villacher is a good team from the EBEL, Austria's top league with a few teams from other countries. Their remaining games are:

Aug 18 v Villacher SV (A)
Aug 23 v HC Bozen/Bolzano (H)
Aug 27 v Manitoba Bisons (H)
Aug 30 v Sterzing Broncos (H)
Sept 01 v Sterzing Broncos (A)
Sept 06 v HC Pustertal (A)
Sept 08 v HC Pustertal (H)

Bozen/Bolzano is an Italian side that has moved to the EBEL effective this year. Sterzing and Pusteral are in the Italian Elite A.

While Ritten/Renon Sport has yet to announce a full schedule and has yet to play a game, they have announced yet another big signing. Eric Johansson, born in Edmonton but with dual Swedish citizenship, has signed. He is a vet, having played in the AHL for 3 seasons ended in 2005. Since then he has played mostly in Sweden. Ritten seems determined to boost themselves to a higher level.

The Neumarkt/Egna Wild Geese do not have the splashy announcements of the other Bison opponents. But there was a story about them signing a young Slovak, Matej Direr, who just been out of junior for a year.
