Exhibition Games vs Cougars

FOUR EXHIBITION GAMES WITH COUGARS!

The Bison Schedule Page now has 2011-12 instead of 2010-11 posted. There is no posting on their European games. The new information is that they will have two home series in their exhibition schedule after their return from Europe, all against Cougars! (It is always great news when you hear about lots of cougars coming to town on back to back weekends.) The Mount Royal Cougars (who will join the CW next year) will be here September 16th at 7:00 and 17th at 2:30 (for the now traditional hockey game at the same time as the homecoming football game). Then the Regina Cougars will be here on September 23rd at 7:00 and 24th at 2:30.

Regina's schedule is also up. In addition to Manitoba, they will play Sask and Briercrest Sept 9th-10th and then host a tournament against Brock and Sask on Sept 17th-18th.

Mount Royal's schedule is up and they will play the Okotoks Oliers (AJHL) on Sept 7th, a home-and-home with Lethbridge on Sept 9th-10th, and will go to Edmontown on Sept 23rd=24th to play Lethbridge and Alberta.

Saskatchewan's schedule has nothing but "TBD" but does confirm that they will be in Regina and Edmontown. I infer that they will play Briercrest and Brock on the weekend days that Regina is not playing them. They are also in Edmontown Sept 23rd-24th. I would also infer that they would play Lethbridge and Alberta on the days opposite Mount Royal, unless Calgary and/or UBC are included in that mix.

UBC's and Calgary's schedules have only the conference games listed. Alberta has nothing at all since last season ended. Lethbridge has nothing new on their schedule, but have uploaded other stories, such as this one about former coaches Mike Babcock and Bill Peters reuniting in Detroit.

I have no word yet on any NCAA exhibition games, but I suspect that UBC and Calgary will be playing down south.

Putting it all together, I get this:

Sept 7th Mount Royal at Okotoks Oilers
Sept 9th Regina at Saskatchewan
Sept 9th Lethbridge at Mount Royal
Sept 10th Briercrest College at Regina
Sept 10th Mount Royal at Lethbridge
Sept 11th Briercrest College at Saskatchewan*

Sept 16th Mount Royal at Manitoba
Sept 16th Brock v Saskatchewan (at Regina)*
Sept 17th Mount Royal at Manitoba
Sept 17th Brock at Regina
Sept 18th Saskatchewan at Regina

Sept 23rd Regina at Manitoba
Sept 23rd Mount Royal v Lethbridge (at Edmontown)
Sept 23rd Saskatchewan at Alberta*
Sept 24th Regina at Manitoba
Sept 24th Lethbridge v Saskatchewan (at Edmontown)*
Sept 24th Mount Royal at Alberta

* my inference only

UPDATE TIME

The Ritten site has an update in that there is now a roster change for their tournament. HC Val Pusteria (aka HC Pusteral) are out and the WSV Sterzing Broncos are in. Manitoba boy, and former Moose, Dirk Southern plays for the Broncos.

Here is the schedule, with opponents yet to be assigned:
27.08.2011 - 16:00 Clock - Game 1
27.08.2011 - 20:00 Clock - Game 2
28.08.2011 - 16:00 Clock - Loser 1 - Loser 2
28.08.2011 - 20:00 Clock - Winner 1 - Winner 2

Participating teams: Ritten Sport Renault Trucks, Fischtown Penguin Bremerhaven, Manitoba Bisons, WSV Sterzing Broncos

I have no further word on the rest of the Bison tour of Europe.

The Calgary Dinos announced their recruits, and this was also analyzed at South Campus Sports. The belief is that this is phase one of announcements for the Dinos. The players are:

Tyler Fiddler - forward - Calgary Hitmen (WHL)
David Robinson - forward - Vernon Vipers (BCHL)
Max Ross - forward - Lethbridge Hurricanes (WHL)
Taylor Stefishen - forward - Prince George Cougars (WHL)

In a speculative story about the Evil Monkeys' recruits at South Campus Sports, a story from the Tri-City Herald was cited which advises that Jarrett Toll has left the Monkeys to pursue his career in the NLL. The U of A site has had nothing new posted since last season ended, not even a schedule update. However the speculation is that they will announce a recruiting class en masse.

EURO TOUR SCHEDULE UPDATE

Aug. 26 Manitoba Bisons @ Rosenheim Starbulls
Aug. 27-28 Ritten Tournament - schedule TBA v Fischtown Pinguins, Ritten, Sterzing
Sep. 1 Manitoba Bisons @ Graz 99ers
Sep. 3 Manitoba Bisons @ Landshut Cannibals

The Rosenheim Starbulls' roster includes many Canadians, one of whom is former Thrasher golatender Norm Maracle. He turned pro with the Adirondack Red Wings in 1994-95. He was up-and-down with the Red Wings then was traded to the Atlanta Thrashers in 1999-2000. He was also up and down with them until going to Russia in 2003-04. He has been in Europe ever since.

The Graz 99ers are in the top Austrian league. Amongst their players is former NHLer Guillaume Lefebvre.

The Landshut Cannibals have a peculiar name and logo. Remember that Bugs Bunny cartoon where he encounters cannibals on a remote island? This team relies mostly on German players rather than imports. One import is Cody Thornton, who played three seasons for Saint Mary's in the CIS. He had 64 goals in 83 CIS games, and 20 goals in 45 German games last year. Here's a look at their jersey:

Mini-Update

Although there is nothing new to report on the Bisons, there are some stories about their opponents.

A non-story seemed to generate a lot of attention from the Monkey enclosure at the Canada West zoo. The Evil Monkeys announced their open tryout process. Yawn. But since they have otherwise done nothing on their website since the end of last year (but for the coaching change) this story also made it to the Boxscore News amid speculation that no feces throwers were being attracted to Saudi Alberta this year. So South Campus Sports chimed in with a "this means nothing" story. (Which is, of course, true.) In one site update, instead of listing last season's schedules and scores they now list "no games scheduled".

With the Bisons off to central Europe to start the pre-season, Regina stepped into the breach and will take their banjos to tour the Excited States. The Regina schedule page confirms they are at North Dakota on October 1st and at Bemidji on October 2nd.

The UBC schedule page also has their exhibition schedule. As per usual, they will not face any CW teams in pre-season. They will host the BCIHL's Thompson Rivers Wolfpack on Sept 17th and the ACAC's SAIT Condoms on Sept 24th. Then from October 1st to 3rd they will play a tough road-trip against Nebraska-Omaha, Minnesota, and Minnesota-Mankato.

The Fischtown Pinguins announced that they have signed former Bison Kevin Saurette. He joined the Reading Royals of the ECHL after the 2006 season ended and then split two seasons between Reading and Bingo of the AHL. He has since played three seasons in Germany.

The BCIHL made no announcement but I see that the Fraser Valley Cascades are not operating this year. They play in other sports in the CIS and BCCAC. They had a record of 2-20-2 last year. But in prior years were right up there in the standings, including 13-10-1 in 2009-10. Eastern Washington is joining the league.

The North Dakota soon-to-be-former-Fighting-Sioux announced that they will play the Clarkson Golden Knights at the MTS Centre on January 7th when the Herd is in Regina. Why this would not be arranged for the following weekend when the Bisons could have played is a mystery. It is about time the Bisons got themselves a home game against UND.

Monkeys, Banjo-Cats announce recruits

August 9, 2011

EVIL MONKEYS AND BANJO-CATS ANNOUNCE RECRUITS
..... AND EUROPEAN TEAMS OPEN CAMP


Although there is no new news about the Bisons out there, two rivals announced their recruiting classes. Also, some of their European tour opponents have made preparations for their training camps, which open this week.

Otherwise, none of the CW teams have announced training camp rosters and Saskatchewan, Alberta, Lethbridge, and Calgary have not released schedules either. So the fast-approaching exhibition season remains a bit of a mystery.

Nine feces-throwing primates were recruited to play for the University of Saudi Alberta. The Evil Monkeys announced their nine player recruiting class en masse. Three of those are hoping to escape the zoo via NHL tryouts. The picks are evaluated (complete with video links) at South Campus Sports. Josh Koper who will be attending Jets camp, Jordan Hickmott is headed to Rangers camp, and Brett Ferguson who got an invite from the Oilers. The players are (all WHL except where noted):
- Levko Koper - forward - Spokane
- Kruise Reddick - forward - Tri-City
- Brett Ferguson - forward - Red Deer
- Jordan Hickmott - forward - Edmonton
- James Dobrowolski - forward - Prince George
- Travis Toomey - forward - Seattle
- Jordan Rowley - defence - Prince Albert
- Thomas Carr - defence - Medicine Hat
- Barron Smith - defence - Peterborough (OHL)

The Monkeys apparently have nine returning forwards, five d-men, and 3 goaltenders. I don't have all the names but gone are their top two scorers, Derek Ryan and Chad Klassen, captain Eric Hunter, and Kyle Fecho on defence. I had understood that their main concern this year was the recruitment of new d-men. However, the group is very heavy with forwards.

The Regina announcement was bound to pale in comparison. They had previously announced seven recruits. But one, goaltender Andrew Hayes from Cape Breton (QMJHL), evidently had a change of heart. They replaced him with Lucas Gore, a fine goaltender from the Chilliwack Bruins. The others (Joel Kot and Blaine Tendler) are d-men who played in the WHL before finishing their junior careers as Junior "A" over-agers. Here's their whole list:
- Liam Brennan - Forward - Augustana College (ACAC)
- Tyler Henry - Forward - Bonnyville (AJHL)
- Troy Hunter - Forward - Estevan (SJHL)
- Dayton Fossum Defence - La Ronge (SJHL)
- Mark Schneider - Defence- Regina (WHL)
- John Sonntag Defence - Kindersley (SJHL)
- Lucas Gore - Goalie - Chilliwack (WHL)
- Joel Kot - Defence - Estevan (SJHL)
- Blaine Tendler - Defence - Yorkton (SJHL)

Ritten/Renon Sport has a brief tournament update, but still not an indication as to which team will face the Bisons in the semi-final round. The hosts also have a new goaltender, Karol Krizan from Slovakia via the Swedish elite league amongst others.

The Landshut Cannibals have opened camp. They should be really well-prepared when they face the Bisons. I have no word as to whether the Bisons will practice here before leaving. If not, they would be at a serious disadvantage.

August 11th schedule update

NON-CONFERENCE SCHEDULE UPDATE

The Evil Monkeys have added their schedule to their website. They won't leave Saudi Alberta for their non-conference games. They play at Calgary on Sept 10th, have a home-and-home with cross-town rivals NAIT Ooks on Sept 16th-17th, then host their Brick Invitational on Sept 23rd-24th. They did not announce the participating teams nor the schedule for that event. They will also venture to the SAIT invitational January 2nd-3rd.

Using the information from Alberta, along with the previous updates from Regina and UBC, I have pieced together an updated non-conference schedule for the Canada West teams. Lethbridge, Saskatchewan, and Calgary have yet to update their websites.

Aug 26th Manitoba at Rosenheim Starbulls
Aug 27th Manitoba at Ritten Tournament - schedule TBA
Aug 28th Manitoba at Ritten Tournament - schedule TBA
Sept 1st Manitoba at Graz 99ers
Sept 3rd Manitoba at Landshut Cannibals

Sept 7th Mount Royal at Okotoks Oilers
Sept 9th Regina at Saskatchewan
Sept 9th Lethbridge at Mount Royal
Sept 10th Briercrest at Regina
Sept 10th Mount Royal at Lethbridge
Sept 10th Alberta at Calgary
Sept 11th Briercrest at Saskatchewan*

Sept 16th Mount Royal at Manitoba
Sept 16th Brock v Saskatchewan (at Regina)*
Sept 16th NAIT at Alberta
Sept 17th Mount Royal at Manitoba
Sept 17th Brock at Regina
Sept 17th Thompson Rivers at UBC
Sept 17th Alberta at NAIT
Sept 18th Saskatchewan at Regina

Sept 23rd Regina at Manitoba
Sept 23rd Mount Royal v Lethbridge (at Edmontown)
Sept 23rd Saskatchewan at Alberta*
Sept 24th Regina at Manitoba
Sept 24th Lethbridge v Saskatchewan (at Edmontown)*
Sept 24th Mount Royal at Alberta
Sept 24th SAIT at UBC

Oct 1st UBC at Nebraska-Omaha
Oct 1st Regina at North Dakota
Oct 2nd UBC at Minnesota
Oct 2nd Regina at Bemidji
Oct 3rd UBC at Minnesota-Mankato

* my inference only

There has been no official announcement yet, but there are rumours that Calgary will be visiting Fredericton this fall, to repay UNB for their trip out to Alberta to play the Dinos (and the Golden Bears) last year.

That rumour was previously posted elsewhere however I could not see it listed on UNB's site either. They have two empty weekends (based on what has been posted by teams so far). They could head east for Sept 16th-17th, and then play in Alberta's Brick Invitational Sept 23rd-24th. However if they are planning to head east for Sept 23rd-24th then on Sept 16th-17th they would need games against opponents who have not released schedules, e.g. Lethbridge and ACAC teams.

Calgary usually also goes down south for a weekend excursion. However they play the Bisons on the Sept 30th/Oct 1st weekend. Therefore it looks like none of the top four from Canada West will play an NCAA team this year.

Keyano College in Fort McMurray has added a hockey team to the ACAC, starting play in 2012-13. Their coach is Paul Strand, former Evil Monkey. The ACAC will therefore stay at 8 teams next year once Mount Royal joins the CW.

Per normal, UNB has been holding off publishing their exhibition schedule. We are aware of UNB's NCAA games so far only because the games appear on NCAA schedules.

UNB will bring someone in for their annual Fall Classic tourney. Could be Calgary. We'll just have to wait until they're ready to announce.

UBC announced a whole set of eight recruits, in addition to the four from June:
- Marc-Antoine Juneau - forward - Bonnyville Pontiacs (AJHL)
- Marcus Toye - forward - Drumheller Dragons (AJHL)
- Nathan Fleming - forward - Spruce Grove Saints (AJHL) & York Lions (CIS)
- Michael Wilgosh - forward - Winkler Flyers (MJHL)
- Cole Pruden - forward - Winnipeg Saints (MJHL)
- Ilan Cumberbirch - defence - Burnaby Express and Surrey Eagles (BCHL)
- Brendon Wall - defence - Kelowna Rockets (WHL) and Melfort Mustangs (SJHL)
- Scott Brkich - defence - Melfort Mustangs (SJHL)

Most teams in the CW appear to have announced complete recruiting classes. There is still nothing from Sask. Calgary and Lethbridge have announced some names but we await their full announcements. Also, most teams still have their 2010-11 roster posted but most have their current schedule. Here is a quick summary:
Manitoba Roster - 2010-11 : Schedule - 2011-12
Regina Roster - 2011-12 : Schedule - 2011-12 : most up-to-date web site in the CW!
Saskatchewan : no roster page and main page schedule has opponents TBA
Alberta Roster - 2011-12 - is blank : Main Page - has 2011-12 schedule but for Brick Invitational
Calgary Roster - 2010-11 : Schedule - 2011-12 - does not include non-conference games
Lethbridge Roster - 2010-11 - on main page: Schedule - 2011-12 - does not include non-conference games
UBC Roster - 2010-11 : Schedule - 2011-12

UBC previously added 4 players so this gives them 12 new ones. However, they are mostly Junior "A" recruits. I do not know how many players they have returning.

Regina is the only team with a 2011-12 roster posted and they have 25 players. They will likely carry all of them.

There are usually a lot of players who leave after one year either because of a lack of playing time or because they don't want t0o finish a degree. At the other end, some players leave once they finish a 3 or 4 year degree.

I am hoping to see rosters updated ASAP from all teams. Until then it is hard to gauge how well everybody recruited.

Well said Hollywood. I wish all the schools kept the information flowing the way Regina has this year. very nicely done by the Cougars.

I actually count 26 skaters and 2 goalies on their 2011-12 roster for a total of 28 players. A huge CIS lineup.

keep us posted on any roster updates.

Didn't Illan Cumberbirch play a season with the U of S Huskies? Will that have any effect on his eligibility at UBC?

According to eliteprospects.com he played there just last season so he may have to red shirt. Anybody know the rule?

If you transfer schools for a second degree (e.g. Law, Education, Medicine, Dentistry, MBA, etc.) after completing one degree at first school, you don't have to sit a year or lose any eligibility. Otherwise you have to sit out (red shirt) 365 days from your last day on the roster of previous CIS or NCAA team.

For example, Nick Layton graduated from UNB this spring in just 3 years. He has two years of eligibility left, and he could have transferred to another school for a second degree or graduate studies and played two more years if he wanted. Instead, he opted to turn pro. Similarly, UNB's Jonathan Harty also graduated in three years this spring, but he opted to stay at UNB and take his MBA. He could have gone anywhere in the CIS and taken his MBA, and played.

Dalhousie, if I remember correctly, has three (3) AUS players transferring in this year, and they are all eligible to play their fifth year with the Tigers.

Ritten: The Ritten tournament has announced the pairings for the semi-final round of their tournament:
Aug 27th Fischtown v Sterzing (4 pm)
Aug 27th Manitoba v Ritten (7 pm)
Aug 28th loser 1 v loser 2 (4 pm)
Aug 28th winner 1 v winner 2 (7 pm)

UBC: There was more analysis of UBC's recruiting class at South Campus Sports.

Calgary: The Dinos' schedule has been updated to add non-conference games. The Sept 9th game does not yet appear on the Alberta schedule. However, it is mentioned at South Campus Sports in their story about the CW pre-season scheduling. That story, however, has Calgary playing StFX on Sept 21st and has no mention of them playing Acadia on Sept 20th. They also say that the Dinos may also play the Flames rookies. Anyhow, here's what they have:
Sept 9th Calgary at Alberta
Sept 10th Alberta at Calgary
Sept 20th Calgary at Acadia
Sept 23th Calgary at UNB
Sept 24th Calgary at UNB

SV Ritten Sport: The Ritten tournament looks to be one zany affair. Maybe not on scale with the holiday season in the Spengler Cup but festive nevertheless. They have a Facebook page and a YouTube page. It seems they used to have a YouTube guy 3 years ago and are now getting back into it. Maybe we'll get some Bison highlights.

Rosenheim Starbulls: The Starbulls will be the Bisons' first opponent and they will have 3 games played by the time they play the Herd. On their schedule page there are links to their summaries of a 4-3 sol against HC Thurgau (Swiss B) and a 5-4 win over the Tolz Lions. They play HC Thurgau tonight.

Graz 99ers: The 99ers beat Vitkovice (Czech) 5-3 and lost to Poprad LEV (Slovakia) 4-3. The Bisons don't play them until Sept. 1st, their 4th game of the tour.

WSV Sterzing Vipeteno Broncos: The Broncos' schedule shows that they will play Utica College (NCAA III) on Aug. 25th.

Calgary: Nothing new has been posted about the Dinos' schedule since mid-week. To verify their Maritime tour I looked up the schedules at the Acadia and StFX sites. StFX lists a game for Sept 21st and Acadia lists nothing. Hmmmm. I guess I will assume that both games are scheduled and some sites need updating. So with just Lethbridge and Sask to confirm schedules, here's the pre-season schedule:

Aug 26th Manitoba at Rosenheim Starbulls
Aug 27th Manitoba v SV Ritten Sport (Ritten semi-final)
Aug 28th Manitoba v Fischtown or Sterzing (final or 3rd place)
Sept 1st Manitoba at Graz 99ers
Sept 3rd Manitoba at Landshut Cannibals

Sept 7th Mount Royal at Okotoks Oilers
Sept 9th Regina at Saskatchewan
Sept 9th Lethbridge at Mount Royal
Sept 9th Calgary at Alberta
Sept 10th Briercrest at Regina
Sept 10th Mount Royal at Lethbridge
Sept 10th Alberta at Calgary
Sept 10th Alberta at Calgary

Sept 16th Mount Royal at Manitoba
Sept 16th Brock v Saskatchewan (Regina Tournament)
Sept 16th NAIT at Alberta
Sept 17th Mount Royal at Manitoba
Sept 17th Brock at Regina (Regina Tournament)
Sept 17th Thompson Rivers at UBC
Sept 17th Alberta at NAIT
Sept 18th Saskatchewan at Regina (Regina Tournament)

Sept 20th Calgary at Acadia
Sept 21st Calgary at St. Francis-Xavier

Sept 23rd Calgary at UNB
Sept 23rd Regina at Manitoba
Sept 23rd Mount Royal v Lethbridge (Edmontown Tournament)

Seems to me the one thing with this is that the program has to be unavailable at the other school. I seem to recall a few football players transfering to the U of S from schools without law programs. So he may have to redshirt unless he is taking something like Marine Biology at UBC.

I'm not sure how this works because UNB has had 5th year players from Dalhousie that offer a MBA program. Yet, Kevin?? Delaney, who played for SMU for 4 years, had to redshirt a year before he was eligible to play for Acadia. He was taking Education. Maybe AUS Fan knows something about that situation?

It is my understanding that Devan Praught, who just graduated from STU, is taking Education at UPEI this fall. It is a 2 year program on the Island and he has to sit out this year but next year he intends on playing for the Panthers.

The rule used to be you had to play your fifth where you played your fourth, Eirann Rigby ( after whom the rule is now named) challenged it to a Human Rights Tribunal I thought, when she ended it up in PEI at Vet College and wanted to continue playing basketball. Thus it was changed to allow fifth year transfers so long as your former school did not offer the program the new school did.
Yeah "Keith " Delaney, took Education at Acadia which is not offered at SMU. Since STU does offer Education, DP has to use one of his years to wait. I don't understand that either a few years ago that Jimmy guy from Dal who took an MBA at UNB? or did he wait a year? because Dal has an MBA program. Dave MacDonald this year, is in Liesure Studies, not offered at SMU, after which he hopes to get into law school. Everybody seems to have a few programs to offer, but clearly the largest have the most advantages.

Jimmy Cuddihy went to UNB for his 5th without sitting out, as did Brad Pierce two years earlier, also from Dal. Both guys were in the MBA program which is offered at Dal. I can only guess that they were not accepted at Dal and were free to go somewhere else.

Probably Dalhousie expected more than "can shoot puck hard" on their transcripts to get accepted into MBA program. UNB probably doesn't have as discriminating standards when it applies to hockey players.
