THE PUCK HAS DROPPED!


VANCOUVER CANUCKS 4
ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS 3

|> [GAME STATS]

The Canuckleheads' rookies edged the Evil Monkeys in a game at Edmontown. The Evil Monkeys have played the Greasers' rookies for several years now and this year add the Canuckleheads. Kind of a slap in the face for UBC.

The Canuckleheads had two goals each from Kellen Tochkin and Kevin Connauton. Also dressed were P.C. Labrie and Mario Bliznak, both of whom played lots for the Manitoba Moose last year.

Next up:
Sept 11 Edmonton Oilers @ Alberta
Sept 11 Manitoba @ Regina (at Whitewood)
Sept 12 Regina @ Saskatchewan (at Yorkton)
Sept 15 New York Islanders @ Saskatchewan (at Prince Albert)

HERD NETS VICTORY


MANITOBA BISONS 3
REGINA COUGARS 2

|> [U OF M STORY]

I can't find stats anywhere and the U of R site does not even have a score, let alone a story. So all I know is what the blurb says, which is basically that Bison goals were scored by Tyler Dittmer, Stewart Thiessen and Riley Dudar.

It's only exhibition, sure, but still counts as a measure of revenge after last season's playoff defeat.

The Bisons will have an inter-squad game on Sunday at 12:00 noon at the Max Bell Arena. They then host the Carleton Ravens of the OUA next Friday and Saturday. I won't be able to attend on Saturday but hope to be there Friday. It's high time the hockey season started!


EDMONTON OILERS 3
ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS 4

|> [GAME STATS] ~ [U OF A STORY]

The Evil Monkeys took apart the Greasers' rookies in this one. They oiutshot them 43-24, including 17-9 in the 3rd period where the Evil Monkeys scored 3 goals. The links have good in-depth coverage of the game.

INTER-SQUAD GAME


BROWN 3
GOLD 4

|> [U OF M STORY (link not active as I post)]

What better way to spend a sunny afternoon than watching inter-squad hockey! My son and I got some chores done and decided to take this one in and got there with about 3 minutes left in the first period.

The Bisons had nice practice jerseys. The Gold were light gold (NOT yellow) and would look great as a regular jersey.

One surprise is that former captain Rob Smith (who played pro in Germany last year) is on the training camp roster. He also was at the Manitoba Moose camp in 2006.

Here's the roster (since it is not on-line :x )
  • GOLD

    Goaltenders:
    1 Jessie Deckert (PA, WHL)
    34 Steve Christie
    35 Sonny Albert (Dryden, SIHL)

    Defensemen:
    2 Chad Erb (Brandon, WHL)
    3 Travis Mealy (UPEI, CIS/AUS)
    4 Kip Workman
    5 Stewart Thiessen
    9 Patrick Flynn (Phoenix, WSHL)
    12 Stephane Lenoski

    Forwards:
    8 Terrance Delaronde
    11 Riley Dudar
    14 Joey Moggach (Bemidji, NCAA)
    15 Troy Crowley (Phoenix, WSHL)
    16 Jared Walker - did not play
    18 Travis Kornelsen
    19 Ian Duval (Kelowna, WHL) - did not play
    20 Steve Obelnicki (Twin City, SPHL)
    22 Kyle Howarth
    23 Tyler Dittmer


    BROWN

    Goaltenders:
    1 Gavin McHale
    35 Ben Lobb

    Defensemen:
    2 David Brown
    3 Brandon Lockerby (Edmonton, WHL)
    4 Rob Smith (German pro) - did not play
    6 Dane Crowley (Houston, AHL)
    8 A.J. Spiller
    9 Bryn Lindsay

    Forwards:
    11 MIke Hellyer
    14 Greg Beller
    15 Cole Hunter
    16 Nick Stelmack (Neepawa, MJHL)
    17 Chris Benias
    18 Blair Macaulay (Saints, MJHL)
    19 Nolan Waker
    21 Calin Wild
    22 Jon Cara
    23 Rick Wood - did not play
The Gold went with 5 d-men per period, loaning Mealy to the forwards in the 2nd period and Thiessen in the 3rd. They then rotated the 5 d-men. The Gold forward lines were:
Howarth - Kornelsen - Moggach
Delaronde - Crowley - Obelnicki
Dittmer - Dudar - d-man

The Brown also rotated their 5 d-men, though Crowley ahd at least one shioft at forward. Brown and Lockerby were togther a lot. The forward lines were:
Hellyer - Beller - Hunter
Macaulay - Wild - Waker
Stelmack - Benias - Cara

The first period was scoreless, and I only saw the ending. Christie was in goal for the Gold and McHale for the Brown.

The Brown scored two late 2nd period goals, by Lockerby and Lindsay. Both were shots from d-men at the point and may have been deflected. (There was no PA announcement.) Albert was in goal for the Gold and Lobb came in goal for the Brown mid-way through.

The Gold broke the game wide-open with a four goal third period outburst. They really dominated the whole period and scored 3 times to take the lead, with Delaronde, Dudar, and Moggach getting the goals. Stelmack for the Brown equalized. Deckert played goal in the 3rd period for the Gold and preserved the tie in the late-going when he made a pair of great saves off Macaulay and Waker. It looked like a draw was going to happen but Delaronde scored with about 16 seconds left for the win.

Delaronde was active, scoring twice and getting into a fight with newcomer Dane Crowley (there are 2 Crowleys on the roster). Crowley's stats are [HERE]. He seems to be a grinder and a decent enough d-man.

The players not returning this year are few and far between. They are:
Myles Rumsey
Mark Olafson
Nick Hotson
Pierre-Paul Lamoureaux
Tyler Mistelbacher

On balance, I would say that the newcomers are better than the players they are replacing. There is a load of competition for spots. Therefore, I would expect some strong effort from the on-the-bubble players next weekend against Carleton.

COACHES ANNOUNCED

Links: [CJOB LINK] ~ [U OF M LINK]

- They are Larry Bumstead and Brent Zelenewich. Both have local roots and are teaching-oriented. In contrast, Calgary has two new coaches with NHL playing experience and not much in the line of coaching, namely Cory Cross and Brad Isbister. [LINK]

The odd thing about the games against UND is that they always happen on a Sunday after the Bisons have already played Friday and Saturday. They need to play on a bye week or in pre-season.

And the odd thing is the SIOUX have had 1 team practice with the coaches before the game.So it's a wash in my book. While the Bison have had 6-8 games under their belt the SIOUX are still shaking the rust off and are yet in game shape.

Why would they not start practice when they go back to school? This is a very odd time to have an exhibition, though. I really don't know why they bother when it really does not fit.

They are on the ice they just can't have coaches on the ice with them.NCAA rule.It's like me and the high school team I coach here in town.I can't be on the ice with them until Nov.9.
As far as the game goes I enjoy it because we get to see all the SIOUX players dress and play and your team always plays hard and never gives up.

SERIES PREVIEW

CARLETON RAVENS (2009: 13-11-4)
MANITOBA BISONS (2009: 13-9-6)


Friday, September 18, 2009 at 7:00 pm at Max Bell Arena
Saturday, September 19, 2009 at 12:30 pm at Max Bell Arena


The Bisons have played one exhibition game, a 3-2 win over Regina. This is Carleton's first game. They follow with games against Windsor and UOIT next weekend.

Carleton is a relative newcomer, having rekindled their hockey program. Though the OUA is weaker than the CW and the AUS, Carleton played in the tougher Far East Division, which included the Quebec teams and Ottawa and it traditionally produces either the conference champion or runner-up. Though they were 4th in the regular season, they beat Concordia in one playoff series and then lost to UQTR in overtime in the 2nd round.

The Bisons played two OUA teams last year. They beat Laurier (22-5-1) by a 6-3 score and lost to Lakehead (18-8-2) by 3-2 in overtime.

The roster page at the U of M site is incomplete, only containing 16 names. I'll be checking for updates.

One unfortunate thing is that Saturday's game is being played in the afternoon whilst the football homecoming game starts at 2:00 p.m. I'll be missing both to be at my son's baseball game. Oh well, at least I'll see one hockey game this weekend.

BISONS TRAMPLE RAVENS IN O.T.

click logos for web site
CARLETON RAVENS 5
MANITOBA BISONS 6

|> [U OF M STORY] ~ [SUMMARY] ~ [SCORE SHEET]



This was a crazy exhibition game. First off, they used the 2 referee, 2 linesmen system and it resulted in a bit of penalty-calling contest. In fact there were three extended 2-man advantage situations (2 in favour of Carleton).

The 1st period was a standard exhibition game. Carleton notched a PP goal by Derek Wells when the Bisons were slow to react to a rebound. Carleton was chippier than the typoical Bison opponent and there were slashes and pushes at every whistle.

Things went off the rails in the 2nd period. Robert Smith of Carleton scored on a penalty shot about 5 minutes in. Thereafter the Bisons went on a stretch where they controlled play. Greg Beller scored on a PP to make it 2-1. Rick Wood scored on a delayed penalty to make it 2-2.

Then came a stretch of 2-man advantages. Wells for Carleton restored their lead at 3-2. Then Carleton took 4 penalties on top of one another (in a space of a minute and a half), during which time the Bisons scored two PP goals on separate 2-man advantages. Newcomer Travis Mealy scored first, and Kyle Howarth second. That made it 4-3 Bisons heading into the 3rd period.

I thought the Bisons might be able to assert control of the game in the 3rd period. But the parade to the penalty box made it impossible for the game to develop any flow. Mike Byrd flew out of the penalty box and tied the game 4 minutes in. Then an exchange of two more PP goals (Howarth by the Bisons and Shane Bakker by the Ravens) finished regulation time at 5-5.

Thankfully, after all penalties were over an even-strength goal ended the game when Howarth completed his hat-trick, scoring the 4th, 5th, and 6th goals on the night.

Each side dressed over-the-limit, meaning there were excess players. In general, the alignment was like this:
  • BISONS
    GOAL:
    Christie (Deckert)

    DEFENCE:
    Thiessen - Lenoski
    Lindsay - Workman
    Mealy - Flynn
    Spiller - Lockerby

    FORWARDS:
    Cara - Kornlesen - Howarth
    Delaronde - Benias - Hunter
    Beller - Wood - Hellyer
    Waker - Wild - Macaulay

    RAVENS
    GOAL:
    Archibald (Dube)

    DEFENCE:
    Smith - Loikets
    Carrie - Klassen
    Halstead - Good
    Stanley - Miffen

    FORWARDS:
    MacLean - Wells - Berard
    Bakker - Self - Caruana
    Bastien - Cipparone - Byrd
    Barrett - Medel - Downey
ELSEWHERE:

  • SASKATCHEWAN HUSKIES 5
    LETHBRIDGE PRONGHORNS 4

    |> [SUMMARY]

    This was the afternoon game out in Edmontown to open The Brick Invitational. Seems like an evenly matched game from the summary. Sask supposedly had a great recruiting class and nothing was heard from Lethbridge but they seemed to do just fine. Sask is now 1-2 and Lethbridge 0-1 in the pre-season.


    REGINA COUGARS 1
    ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS 5

    |> [U OF A STORY] ~ [SUMMARY]



    The Evil Monkeys can be tough at home and evidently throttled the Puddy-Tats out in Edmontown. Regina is now 1-2 in the pre-season and Alberta is 2-1, having split against NHL rookie squads.


    NAIT OOKS -
    UBC THUNDERBIRDS -

    |> [UBC SITE] ~ [NAIT SITE]

    There are as yet no results from the west coast. So check the team sites at the links and the score should be at one of them. I see that NAIT has two Portage Terrier grads, Kyle Fisher and Riley Nixdorf.

BISONS TAKE ANOTHER IN O.T.

CARLETON RAVENS 3
MANITOBA BISONS 4

|> [U OF M STORY] ~ [SUMMARY] ~ [SCORE SHEET]



The Bisons had a big edge in shots (42-26) and made several line-up changes. Deckert and McHale split the goaltending. McHale had a shut-out. Erb, Walker, Dudar, Dittmer, and Brown were all added to the line-up. Oddly, Carleton used the same goaltender from Friday night.

ELSEWHERE:

  • REGINA COUGARS 3

    A mild surprise, I guess. Hilton was in goal again for Regina.

    ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS 5

    |> [U OF A STORY] ~ [SUMMARY]



    The Evil Monkeys were outshot but took their own tournament with the win. Harvey was in net again for Sask.


    NAIT OOKS 5
    UBC THUNDERBIRDS 3

    |> [UBC STORY]

    It transpires that this series is Saturday-Sunday, so there was no game last night. UBC falls victim to an ACAC team. They have quite the pre-season, playing teams from the ACAC, NCAA, and AHL.

SERIES PREVIEW AND MID-WEEK UPDATES

click logos for web site

MANITOBA BISONS (2009: 13-9-6)
BROCK BADGERS (2009: 9-14-5)


The Bisons wrap up their pre-season non-conference schedule with a pair of games in St. Catharines against the Brock Badgers this coming weekend.

The Bisons are 3-0 in the pre-season, but not one win is by more than a single goal. Meanwhile, Brock started on the road with a pair of shut-out losses in New Brunswick, by 4-0 and 5-0 scores. However, it must be noted that UNB are defending national champions.

In the 2007-08 season the Badgers surprised everybody when they went on a playoff run which gained them a berth in the nationals. They won best-of-three series against the Western Ontario Urban Cowboys and the Lakehead Thunderwolves, taking the deciding game in overtime in both cases. I guess they used up too much karma, because they fell out of the playoff race in 2008-09.

Here are some Brock links:The pre-season records (including all opposition from CIS to colleges to NHL rookies) are as follows:

CW team W L T (teams beaten)
Alberta 3 1 0 (Oilers, Regina, Sask)
Manitoba 3 0 0 (Regina, Carleton, Carleton)
Lethbridge 2 2 0 (Mt Royal, Regina)
UBC 1 1 0 (NAIT)
Regina 1 3 0 (Sask)
Saskatchewan 1 3 0 (Lethbridge)
Calgary 0 0 0


I know it is only pre-season, but the Evil Monkeys are off to a much better start than the Banjo Dogs.

  • Sept 25 Manitoba @ Brock
    Sept 25 Lethbridge @ Regina (at Saskatown)

BISONS CLAIM ROAD WIN

click logos for web site
MANITOBA BISONS 4
BROCK BADGERS 1

|> [U OF M STORY] ~ [B.U. STORY]

The Brock site had an audio webcast so I heard the ending of the game. By the sounds of it the Bisons had quite an edge in play. Neither the Ontario or the CW web sites have links to any summaries. So all we know is this:
Quote:
MHKY Pre-Season: Manitoba 4 Brock 1 at Brock University...

Manitoba scorers: Jared Walker, Rick Wood, Greg Beller and Mike Hellyer
with Steve Christie and Jesse Deckert in nets...

Both teams play again on Sat., Sept. 26 at 3 pm CT

Watch Manitoba Bisons men's hockey at Brock with live broadcast on ustream.tv (audio) for Saturday, September 26 game.

ELSEWHERE:

  • REGINA COUGARS 1
    LETHBRIDGE PRONGHORNS 3



    ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS 3
    SASKATCHEWAN HUSKIES 2

    (in overtime)

    All I could get were the scores. Both games are part of the Huskie Classic in Saskatown. I guess they are reeling from their unexpected football loss to the Evil Monkeys in Edmontown.


    MOUNT ROYAL COUGARS 0
    CALGARY DINOS 4


    I got a score this morning. Mount Royal College just became Mount Royal University effective this season.
NEXT UP:
  • Sept 26 Manitoba @ Brock
    Sept 26 Regina @ Saskatchewan
    Sept 26 Alberta @ Lethbridge (at Saskatown)
    Sept 26 SAIT @ Calgary

    Sept 30 Abbotsford Heat @ UBC

BISONS SWEEP TO GO 5-0 IN PRE-SEASON

click logos for web site
MANITOBA BISONS 3
BROCK BADGERS 2

|> [U OF M STORY] ~ [B.U. STORY]

The information on the game is sparse so read the short articles at the links. A basic summary is here:
Code:
Scoring Summary

First Period
3:25 Manitoba  Mike Hellyer (Jared Walker, Greg Beller) PP
12:56 Brock  Derek Brochu (Stephen Miller)
19:35 Manitoba  Chris Benias (Kip Workman, Stewart Thiessen)

Second Period
0:32 Manitoba  Rick Wood (Mike Hellyer, Greg Neller) PP
18:04 Brock  Ryan Allen (George Bradley)

Third Period
No Scoring
This gives the Bisons a clean sweep of their pre-season schedule. However, four of the five games were decided by one goal.

Next weekend is the home opener against the Saskatchewan Huskies, who have struggled in the pre-season. However, they are the perennial #2 team in the league and recruited well in the eyes of most observers. The oddity of next weekend is that the Bisons will then head down to play at UND on Sunday. It seems that every year they play UND as a 3rd game in 3 days.

ELSEWHERE:

  • ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS 5
    LETHBRIDGE PRONGHORNS 6

    |> [U OF A LINK]


    REGINA COUGARS -
    SASKATCHEWAN HUSKIES -


    The U of A site is the only source with any information as I post. The Saskatchewan telegraph office must be running slow this weekend.

    Anyhow, Lethbridge wins the weekend series with a rare win over the Evil Monkeys.So they must be happy.


    SAIT TROJANS 5
    CALGARY DINOS 1

    |> [SAIT STORY]

    SAIT also defeated Mount Royal earlier in this round-robin tournament to take the title. All three teams are from the City of Calgary. The story at the SAIT link also contains speculation regarding the CIS and CCAA (colleges) joining forces at some level.

    The odd things is that Alberta colleges have a very good league but nobody else has such a league in Western Canada. The fledgling Manitoba Colleges Athletic Association had 3 teams last year (Assiniboine, CMU, and Providence) and my guess is that most of the players in that league played elsewhere. This year they have four teams with the addition of Saint Boniface (CUSB). [MCAC SCHEDULE]

I am really looking forward to the Bisons season this year... they looked very good in the 2 home exhibition games. And all the games were played without their final team, unlike Regina and Lethbridge who had virtually no one to cut.

SERIES PREVIEW: REGULAR SEASON STARTS!

click logos for web site

SASKATCHEWAN HUSKIES (2008-09: 17-9-2; 2009-10: 1-5-0)
MANITOBA BISONS (2008-09: 13-9-6; 2009-10: 5-0-0)


I am kicking the schedule-makers for the Moose and Bisons who have both teams starting their home seasons on the exact same dates. So I'll be seeing the Moose on Friday and the Bisons on Saturday.

The Huskies had by all accounts a great crop of recruits this year. However, their on-ice results in pre-season have been less than stellar. Of course, it is hard to extrapolate those results to the regular season. However, in the past the pre-season results usually mirror the early season results.

Of importance this year are two factors in scheduling and league format. One, only four teams qualify for the playoffs. Two, the conference sends two teams to the nationals. Therefore, the Huskies and Bisons could be playing a semi-final series for a spot in the nationals. After a bazillion years in a row of the Huskies facing the Evil Monkeys for the conference title, this could be the year where the Bisons change that.

The Bisons will then head down to The Ralph to face the North Dakota Fightin' Sioux on Sunday night. I have never been a fan of that sort of scheduling but it is apparently all that be accomodated under NCAA rules. The Sioux are ranked 2nd in the WCHA pre-season coaches' poll [LINK]. They may still have to change their name unless local reservations approve. [LINK]
