As with game 1, all we have is a list of scorers from the Monkeys' site: Brett Ferguson, Torrie Dyck and Thomas Carr. So now the records of the three teams to see action so far are:
Alberta 3-0-0
Manitoba 2-1-1
Calgary 0-2-0

There was also a piece in the Edmontown Examiner on new Monkey goaltender Luke Siemens. Although he has great credentials, it is hard to see him improving the Monkey goaltending. Kurtis Mucha stole games for them last year, including one memorable night in Manitoba.


There is no announcement yet from Sask on their recruits. However, we get word from Fort Mac that one of the Keyano Huskies' goaltenders is shifting to another pack of mutts. Matthew Smidt is shifting from remote Alberta to the Spitoon. BTW, Sask's site really sucks.

I also came across a piece on Yahoo about the CIS's improved exposure in general. Cited are:
1. CIS TV Deal with Sportsnet.
2. Sportsnet 360 Web Coverage (see http://www.sportsnet.ca/cis/).
3. Investment in free, live streaming.
4. Partnerships with community teams (an example is the Bisons-Bombers).
5. Brand Power.

I will have to see how Sportsnet's CIS page covers hockey this year. Right now the football coverage looks pretty good.
