Dulle driven from STU by now fired coach.

The Saskatoon Star-Phoenix has another profile story, this one on Kenton Dulle. He red-shirted last season as a transfer from St. Thomas. I guess if you are dull you belong in Sask!
Kenton Dulle had the misfortune to be coached at STU by the now fired coach, EX NHL er Mike Eagles who remains as the schools A/D.

Young Dulle was undoubtetly a thoroughbred player who was often in the dog house but deserved guidance and handling which the coach of the day was incapable of providing.
A university is supposed to.be an institution of learning and guidance but was NOT provided in his case.

It is a mistake to believe that just because one plays in the NHL that it equips one with the skills required to instruct young minds adequately and that certainly was the case with Eagles who remains as A/D.

Kenton was as positive as be could be under the circumstances that he endured at STU and good luck to him at U of STU.

this is good stuff on Dulle. Who was that last guy on this dicussion board who ate him alive as a malcontent/cancer?? Think those out west we will go with this description and mister bitter nose should get out of the basement once in a while and see that the sun is shining!

Sept. 20: One more calf for the Herd

The Bison roster page has made one late addition, namely Eric Mestery. They now have 28 players listed. Mestery is a big (6' 4") defenceman who played 4 years in the WHL with Tri-Cities and Lethbridge, from 2006-07 to 2009-10. In that time he was a 2nd round draft pick of the Washington Capitals in the 2008 entry draft. He announced his retirment in the summer of 2010 but made a comeback in December of his overage year with the Selkirk Steelers (MJHL) in 2010-11, where he only played 22 games. He never played in 2011-12.

The Bison depth chart now looks like this (some numbers have been changed and players are listed in numerical order):

Goal (3)
1 Joe Caligiuri – 34 Deven Dubyk - 35 Jesse Deckert

Defencemen (9)
tbd Eric Mestery - 2 Dane Crowley - 3 Blair Osiowy
4 Jeremy Schappert - 5 Lee Christensen - 6 Brock Sutherland
20 Brandon Lockerby - 22 Darren Bestland - 24 Travis Bobbee

Forwards (16)
9 Matthew Lowry – 10 Brendan Rowinski - 11 James Henry
12 Brett Chartier - 14 Nathan Green - 15 Craig Scott
16 Jesse Paradis – 17 Austin Lauder - 18 Dylan Kelly
19 Ian Duval - 21 Del Cowan - 23 Tyler Dittmer
25 Paul Ciarelli - 26 Blair Macaulay - 27 Tyler Feakes
29 Luke Cain

OUT EAST

Dulle, also possessed the ability to self destruct, like Charles Lavigne often did ( STU's star goalie). A player must take responsibility for his actions. He has talent and plays with an edge, I expect him to settle down and become a go to guy in Toon Town. As for Rantfather, someone needs to guide him to the sh.t house!

Lineup looked like this:

Dittmer - Henry - Macaulay
Paradis - Ciarelli - Lowry
Cain - Chartier - Feakes

Dulle's latest "meltdown" in a Saskatchewan winning game was to score 2 of 6 team goals on 6 shots with 2 PIM's,I will take that kind of performance any day

A credible performance and one hopefully repeated as he continues with his "meltdown",under better coaching circumstances at the University of Saskatchewan, Kenton will undoubtedly shine and good for him.

Dulle also had Saskatchewan's only goal in a 2 to 1 double OT loss to Alberta last night. He also had a penalty to go with the goal.

Sept. 21: Bisons 6, Cougars 2

HERD TRAMPLES KITTENS


REGINA COUGARS 2
MANITOBA BISONS 6


Links:
|> [LS Summary] : [CW Schedule/Results/Links]
|> [Manitoba Site : Roster] : [Regina Site]
|> [LeagueStat Manitoba Line-up] : [LeagueStat Regina Line-up]


It is always nice to see the inside of a hockey rink for the first time in autumn, and Friday was the night for me. As is usual for the first exhibition game, things were a bit out of synch. The line-up card is not the same, but at least it had the names and numbers, with only a couple of changes necessary. The PA guy was off with the tunes, but no mess-ups with the clock like I have seen in past seasons. And the Molson Canadian was nicely chilled to perfection, with the price holding steady at $4.00.

In the game, the Bisons handled the Banjo-Cats fairly well. After Regina started with a 13-0 win over Briercrest I thought maybe they were better than last year. IMO they seem to be short of defencemen. Their forwards are not going to scare the defencemen on any of the Big Four in the conference, but they do have their moments. Based on tonight, I would say that they have a less than 50% chance of finishing in the top 6 needed for a playoff berth.

Here's how the teams lined up:

MANITOBA BISONS

Goal:
34 Deven Dubyk - 35 Jesse Deckert

Defence:
22 Darren Bestland - 2 Dane Crowley
6 Brock Sutherland - 20 Brandon Lockerby
4 Jeremy Schappert - 24 Travis Bobbee
10 Eric Mestery

Forwards:
23 Tyler Dittmer - 11 James Henry - 26 Blair Macaulay
16 Jesse Paradis – 25 Paul Ciarelli - 9 Matthew Lowry
29 Luke Cain - 12 Brett Chartier - 27 Tyler Feakes
18 Dylan Kelly - 15 Craig Scott - 14 Austin Lauder

Scratches:
F: 10 Brendan Rowinski - 14 Nathan Green - 19 Ian Duval - 21 Del Cowan
D: 3 Blair Osiowy - 5 Lee Christensen
G: 1 Joe Caligiuri

REGINA COUGARS

Goal:
1 Mitch Kilgore - 35 Lucas Gore

Defence:
13 Brock Appleyard - 7 Mark Schneider
5 Jordan Reeve - 6 Matt Sawa
8 James Friedel - 2 Brandyn Wasyliw

Forwards:
24 Ward Szucki - 21 Skylar Hladun - 14 Craig Cuthbert
12 Liam Brennan - 9 Tyler Penny - 17 Carter Selinger
29 Matt Strueby - ... ... - 22 Troy Hunter
11 Tanner Lange - 10 Tyler Henry - 19 Sanfred King
15 Tyler Murray - dressed but not noticed

Scratches:
F: 20 Ryan Sawka - 25 Shay Wirll
D: 4 John Sonntag - 18 Russ Neilson
G: 16 Brayden Nargan

The Bisons don't have any names on jerseys yet, and there were a couple of changes. #17 Lauder took Green's #14 and the numberless Mestery took Rowinski's #10. Mestery had the odd shift as a 7th defenceman and the combos were shuffled a bit. The forward lines stayed consistent.

For the Kittens, Strueby and Hunter were a combo up front with pretty much everybody else at various times. I never saw a #15.

OUT OF TOWN SCOREBOARD:


NAIT OOKS 0
LETHBRIDGE PRONGHORNS 3


Links:

The H0rny Ones needed to rack up a win at long last. There is no game story as I post but the CW mini-summary is at least up. Lethbridge visits SAIT on Saturday.


SASKATCHEWAN HUSKIES 1
ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS 2

(in shoot-out)

The Evil Monkeys and Banjo-Mutts had a real nail-biter in game 2 of The Brick Invitational. Saturday night's game between the Primates and Mount Royal will decide the tournament. The Mongrels will face the Bedrock Boys in an afternoon consolation game on neutral ice. That's 7-0 for the Monkeys in pre-season. Against CW teams they are 3-0 with all wins by one goal.


SIMON FRASER CLAN 3
UBC THUNDERBIRDS 4

(in overtime)

Links:
|> [LS Summary] : [UBC Site]


UBC seem to have outplayed their cross-town rival (shots were 40-20) but could not put them away. UBC had a 3-1 lead but a Clan goal with just over a minute to go in the 2nd, followed by another 14 seconds into the 3rd, tied the game. Then the Tweety-Birds could not score in a 3rd period where they outshot the Clan 12-4. SFU hosts the return match Saturday night.

Sept. 22: Bisons 6, Cougars 2

SECOND VERSE SAME AS THE FIRST


REGINA COUGARS 2
MANITOBA BISONS 6


Links:
|> [LS Summary] : [CW Schedule/Results/Links]
|> [Manitoba Site : Roster] : [Regina Site]


I am not a big fan of matinee hockey, especially when it creates a conflict with a football game, but in the end this trip to the Max Bell was worth it. Not that this produced some classic hockey, but it was a nice opportunity to see what the new recruits look like.

Before I get too far into this, here's how the teams lined up:

MANITOBA BISONS

Goal:
1 Joe Caligiuri (35 Jesse Deckert)

Defence:
22 Darren Bestland - 2 Dane Crowley
5 Lee Christensen - 4 Jeremy Schappert
10 Eric Mestery - 3 Blair Osiowy

Forwards:
23 Tyler Dittmer - 19 Ian Duval - 26 Blair Macaulay
16 Jesse Paradis – 25 Paul Ciarelli - 9 Matthew Lowry
12 Brett Chartier - 11 James Henry - 27 Tyler Feakes
18 Dylan Kelly - 15 Craig Scott - 14 Austin Lauder

Scratches:
F: 10 Brendan Rowinski - 14 Nathan Green - 21 Del Cowan - 29 Luke Cain
D: 6 Brock Sutherland - 20 Brandon Lockerby - 24 Travis Bobbee
G: 34 Deven Dubyk

REGINA COUGARS

Goal:
35 Lucas Gore - 30 Andrew Hayes

Defence:
13 Brock Appleyard - 7 Mark Schneider
5 Jordan Reeve - 6 Matt Sawa
8 James Friedel - 2 Brandyn Wasyliw
2nd and 3rd period: 14 Craig Cuthbert

Forwards:
14 Craig Cuthbert (1st period) - 10 Tyler Henry - 22 Troy Hunter
9 Tyler Penny (replaced Cuthbert 2nd and 3rd period)
24 Ward Szucki - 20 Ryan Sawka - 11 Tanner Lange
16 Brayden Nargan - 15 Tyler Murray - 19 Sanfred King
12 Liam Brennan - 21 Skylar Hladun - 17 Carter Selinger

Scratches:
F: 25 Shay Wirll - 29 Matt Strueby
D: 4 John Sonntag - 18 Russ Neilson
G: 1 Mitch Kilgore

In the Bison goal, Caligiuri went the distance, after Dubyk and Deckert split Friday's game. This would indicate that Caligiuri has retained his starting position.

On defence, Sutherland, Lockerby and Bobbee were scratches after having played on Friday (when 7 d-men were dressed). Christensen and Osiowy were scratched on Friday, but dressed on Saturday. Mestery rarely played on Friday but saw a regular shift, and then some, on Saturday.

Now, it is hard to gauge the quality of the newcomers in games where they weren't under much pressure. But IMO the Bisons are blessed with 9 guys in camp who can play D in this league. The Mestery-Osiowy combination played very well on Saturday. I would love to see another 40 lbs. on Mestery. He seems to have a lot of upward potential.

I also have to note the play of Bestland. Due to last year's glut of defencemen, he had to play up front all year and did well as a 4th liner, generally on a line of converted blueliners. But when paired with Crowley on Saturday he was impressive. He had the best hit of the night, broke up several rushes, and made strong clearing passes all game.

Up front, the only change from Friday to Saturday was that Duval was in and Cain was out. Duval resumed his role on the 1st line, and Henry took Cain's spot on the 3rd line.

IMO, Duval improved the 1st line. They usually made the Kittens look like they were on catnip. However, they also made a bone-head play which resulted in Regina's first goal.

The 2nd line is a dangerous unit. They scored 3 goals on Friday night and it seemed to me that they had less ice-time Saturday. Their only goal was Ciarelli's, and that was in the midst of a line change.

The 3rd line was much more dangerous with Henry centering the unit on Saturday. Chartier notched two goals. He is a small player with loads of puck-handling talent. IMO, this is the type of player in short supply in the CW. Usually the Junior "A" grads have to earn their stripes. I hope he gets some good ice time to see what he can do on a semi-regular basis (at least) once the season begins. Feakes and/or Cain can help on this line by adding size.

The 4th line was unchanged in the two games, and produced one goal in each game. Kelly scored Friday, and Lauder on Saturday. This whole line is Junior "A" grads. They could stand to be a bit more physical. They gave as good as they got. But with two veterans and two university transfers not dressed, my guess is that this unit will form a taxi squad of capable replacement players.

OUT OF TOWN SCOREBOARD:


LETHBRIDGE PRONGHORNS 5
SAIT TROJANS 3


Links:
|> [SAIT Mini-Summary] : [Lethbridge Site]


The H0rny Ones notched a much-needed sweep to boost their confidence, and they got it. Here's all the information I have on the game:
Quote:
Details

U of L -- Chase Schaber, Brent Henke, Daniel Iwanski, Mark Hall, David McMullin. SAIT -- Jonathan Young, Landon Kadatz, Brent Struble.

Goal -- SAIT: Mike Tadjdeh (33-28); U of L: Damien Ketlo (31-28).

This turned out to be the consolation game in The Brick Invitational, played on neutral ice in Edmontown. As I post I do not have any source of information which gives more than the score.


MOUNT ROYAL COUGARS 4
ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS 5

(in overtime)

Links:
|> [LS Summary] : [Alberta Site]
|> [U of A Game Story - Friday]


You might want to check the U of A site for a tournament wrap-up story. None has been uploaded as I post. The Evil Monkeys have won their own tournament. Oddly, this gives them 4 straight one-goal wins against CW teams in the pre-season. Are they using up their good fortune in pre-season games in advance of their season debut against the Bisons next Friday and Saturday? Let's hope so!

Her Majesty's Kittens held a 3-2 lead after the 1st period. However, thereafter the Monkeys dominated the stats. They outshot their new provincial rivals by 35-9 over the final two periods but all they could do was force overtime.

The result gives Alberta 4 points and Mount Royal 3 points in the tournament standings. Calgary had 2 and Saskatchewan 1 to finish the field.


UBC THUNDERBIRDS 8
SIMON FRASER CLAN 0


Links:
|> [SFU Site]
|> [UBC Game Story - Friday]


There is no source for game stats as I post, but I did listen to much of this on-line through the SFU Site link. After SFU was able to hang in game one despite being outshot, once they got behind by a couple it seemed to be a case where the floodgates opened. Frankly, UBC should be able to crush SFU by this type of margin. You can check the links for any new game stories which are bound to be uploaded.

There "toilet hmour" by Red Army East directed at.me will not be commented on.

My comments re Dulle was to point out by example his play under competent coaching which was missing during his time at STU.

Dulle was not the only player driven from.The program by a coach who lacked/lacks basic communication skills to intervene or appropriately guide thoroughbred players such as Dulle.
The former coach was misguidedly supported by administration who no longer are at STU into misspending $$$$$ in trying to rectify a failing men's hockey program.

The hiring of new coach Troy Ryan has a new direction being put in place and should be supported by all.
This man knows what he is doing and should be strongly supported by administration in vetting Men's hockey back on track.

Sunday Morning Links

No matter how late one tries to stay awake on Saturday, there is always some information which just does not come available until Sunday morning.

First, a score from out east:
Guelph 5 Laurier 1 : [Laurier Schedule/Results]

Second, we have two game stories:

UBC has a full report on their 8-0 romp over SFU.

Alberta has two links with the same story and summary.

Since the pre-season has now wrapped up in the CW, here is a compilation of the results:

`````````````` v CW````v other``total
Alberta````````4-0-0`` 4-0-0````8-0-0
Manitoba`````` 3-1-0`` 0-0-0````3-1-0

For all of the talk/complaining about UNB carrying a lot of players the last couple years Manitoba has got quite the glut of guys this year (8 scratches last night)....now I am unfamiliar how they do things so do they plan on keeping all of those guys or will there be cuts?

Darned if I know.

They usually carry 24-26. After they ran short of bodies at times last year, and finished with 9-10 forwards, they might be inclined to be at the high end this year.

Since there are more than the usual number of Junior "A" guys around they might have a "taxi squad" where a player or two might even be deemed to be a red shirt.

In the past they have cuts guys but called them up later when they were short of bodies. That's also a possibility.

This is great stuff Hollywood. With southcampussports.com shut down we are missing Evan Baum's annual Canada West recruiting report card. I think he also did one of the whole nation. Are you up to the task of giving us your thoughts on who has the best recruiting class and why?

Since there are more than the usual number of Junior "A" guys around they might have a "taxi squad" where a player or two might even be deemed to be a red shirt.

In the past they have cuts guys but called them up later when they were short of bodies. That's also a possibility.
I think this is a good assessment of the situation. Currently there are 3 injured forwards - Rowinski, Green and Cowan. So I think Coach Sirant wants to be on the safe side up front.

on the back end, i think the Bisons will release one of the newcomers to get down to 8. Normally the Bisons keep 14 forwards, 8 dmen and 3 goalies. i think there may be 1 or 2 more forwards staying around this year, partially because of the need for depth with injuries and partially because of how good everyone looked in camp. The Bisons are looking strong.

Here is my take on the roster:


Forwards
Dittmer (5) - DuVal (4) - Macaulay (4) (could/should be the best line in Canada West)
Paradis (1) - Ciarelli (1) - Lowry (3) (had some good chemistry in pre-season - Rowinski may be penciled in here once he gets healthy)
Cain (4) - Henry (1) - Feakes (5) (who would want to play against these guys - size on the wings, grit, smarts, skill - tremendous third line)
Kelly (1) - Chartier (1) - Lauder (2) (for now with the injuries, I expect this line to get harder to play against when people are healthy - Chartier has some impressive skill, Kelly skates very well for a big tough guy)

reserve/injuries:
Rowinski (2) (skill guy has to play in top 9)
Green (2) (skill guy but has to prove himself, could take some time to work his way up in the lineup)
Cowan (3) (veteran who plays hard all the time, great on the PK, he will be an important part of this team once he gets back)
Scott (1) (Jr A guy who seems to be a bit in awe of the speed/skill/size out there, may need to be eased into things)

these lines with this depth is very impressive, may be the best Bison forward lineup in a long time.

Defence:
Schappert (3) - Bobbee (2) (smooth as silk and talented, expect the forwards to get the puck quickly and accurately)
Bestland (2) - Crowley (4) (Bestland has been a very pleasant surprise - consistent, physical, good puck movement and Crowley is one of the top dmen in the country and the likely captain of the 2012-13 Bisons)
Sutherland (2) - Lockerby (4) (Sutherland has looked very good as a freshman especially poised with the puck but is a defensively sound player and Lockerby is an offensive veteran, should be a good pairing)

reserve:
Mestery (1) (still working himself into shape it seems having not played for awhile but being a former 2nd round NHL pick and 6'5" this guy will get a chance - right now this is a pretty good depth option)
Christensen (1) & Osiowy (1) (my guess is one of these guys will be let go - both have been very solid in pre-season).

Goal
Caligiuri (3) - (seems to have gotten the nod as the number one to start in Alberta after the last preseason games)
Deckert (5) - (with great puck handling skills - has been injured and inconsistent in the past but has some great talent, should be very motivated as a 5th year guy)
Dubyk (1) - (will be the third guy unless something happens)

Redshirts:
From some reports from Bison practices it appears that there are at least 3 redshirts who will be eligible for 2013-14.

F - Aaron Lewadniuk (this guy will be great)
F - Taylor Dickin (this guy will be great)
G - Mark Friesen (has the potential to be a number 1 CIS goalie) - rumour is that he is focusing on school this year and will be back next year.

my assessment is that the Bisons will be very strong again in 2012-13 (and are already ahead of the game for recruiting for 2013-14), and may be even better than 2011-12 (the forward group is bigger, deeper and more talented but the defence needs to prove they can replace Rumsey, Erb and Schmidt, and it appears that with Sutherland and Mestery and more experience from the rest of the group they are close to doing that).

It will be a big first weekend on the road in Alberta.

With Mount Royal now in the fold and 8 teams in the conference are they going with a true balanced schedule this season....2 home/2 away against each of the other 7 teams?

I don't follow the WHL so I have nothing much to say about the new recruits around the league.

My impression of the teams from looking at http://www.eliteprospects.com/ is that UBC is improved and the rest replaced their departures with equivalent calibre players.

I might toss in a bit of extra analysis in the upcoming weekend preview, especially regarding the Monkeys since they will be the Bison opponent.

Sept. 25: Previews Are Out



First, the Bisons announced their captains. Dane Crowley gets the "C", whilst an "A" will be worn by Tyler Dittmer, Blair Macaulay, and Matthew Lowry.

Second, the Bisons have a Season Preview Story. The story says the team has 27 players, and that 12 are newcomers. However, the Roster Page has by my count 14 returnees and 14 newcomers. Maybe they don't count last season's redshirt as a newcomer, and maybe somebody was cut.



There was also a pre-season coaches poll, announced at both the CIS and CW sites. Here's the result:

1. Saskatchewan (4) 64
2. Manitoba```` (3) 54
3. Alberta``````(1) 50
4. Calgary``````````38
5. UBC``````````````27
6. Lethbridge`````` 17
7. Mount Royal``````13
8. Regina````````````8


The 1st place votes are in brackets. Scoring was based on a 10-8-6-4-3-2-1 system. So not only did 3 teams get 1st place votes, four were picked to win, place, or show. And, Regina was a unanimous last, even from their own coach!



The CIS site has a story on UNB facing the Russians. The Russkies will be all-stars from the MHL, their top junior league. The games will be on December 30th and 31st. The Comrades' tour will start with games against the Providence College Friars and RPI Red Hawks, both from the NCAA.

Sept. 25: More News

It seems that the teams across the CW got back to updating websites. Here's what I found:


The Regina Cougars uploaded a recap of their home games from Sept. 14-16 and a recap of their Bison series on Sept. 21-22.


The Mount Royal Cougars uploaded a recap of their loss to the Evil Monkeys.


Meanwhile, in the Town of Bedrock, they have proclaimed Sports Day in Canada. This is the itinerary:
Quote:
SPORTS DAY IN CANADA
Friday, Sept. 28
National Jersey Day – Show your support for sport by wearing your favourite jersey!
7 p.m. Men's Hockey: Dinos vs. Lethbridge, Father David Bauer Arena
7:45 p.m. (approx.): Calgary Flames defenceman Jay Bouwmeester signing autographs in the 1st intermission

Saturday, Sept. 29
2 p.m. Busses leave from UofC residence / Dining Centre
2:30 p.m. Yoga on the field at McMahon Stadium
3:15 p.m. Tailgate BBQ on the concourse – the first 300 yoga participants receive a FREE burger and beverage!
5 p.m. Football: Dinos vs. Saskatchewan, McMahon Stadium
Yoga? Before football? Who thought of that one? Betty and Wilma? Mr. Slate?


The H0rny Ones' Preview is up. They have this to say:
Quote:
Set to battle for the starting role this season is freshman Damien Ketlo, the Lethbridge Hurricanes 2011-12 MVP and Dylan Tait, also a former Hurricane. Tait made 7 appearances last season, mostly in relief appearances but put up solid numbers with a 2.89 goals-against-average and .920 save percentage.

In addition to the loss of Bowles, the ‘Horns are without their top three scorers from last season. Captain and leading scorer Dustin Moore and Winston Day Chief have graduated, while Taylor Gal decided to not to return for his third season. Up front, Dan Iwanski and Clayton Cumiskey will be tabbed to lead the way offensively but head coach Greg Gatto also expects big things from a trio of newcomers.

Former Kamloops Blazers captain Chase Schaber gives the ‘Horns a bona-fide number one centre and leadership, and former Western leaguers Cody Chikie and Killian Hutt have shown the ability to contribute offensively.

On the blue-line, coach Gatto has completely revamped the core which will be very young this year. DJ McDougall, Tyler Hlookoff and Mason Conway all return but the addition of former Victoria Royals captain Hayden Rintoul, local product Cason Machacek and former OHLer’s Tim Campbell and David McMullen are set to bolster the back end.
IMO, although Bowles gave them great goaltending for many years I felt he was not the goalie of old last year and Tait ought to have played more. This is a better-than-usual recruiting class for them, but they lost their core scorers up front. I await the posting of their roster at LeagueStat.


The U of A has a Evil Monkeys v Bisons Preview, although it appears to be a rough draft as I post.


The Banjo-Mutts have a cut-and-paste of the CW coaches' poll story. The U of S site has not posted much so far this year, so at least that is something. The story is also reposted at The Boxscore News, where they also reposted the UNB announcement.


The ACAC main page has a change to the SAIT Trojans Eye Opener Tournament. It was set up as an ACAC v BCIHL event. But the MacEwan Griffins are out and the AAA Senior Innisfail Eagles are in.


And here are the late scores from out east:

Sunday, September 23
UQTR 2 New Brunswick 3 : [UNB Game Story]
St. Francis Xavier 3 Acadia 2 : [Tournament wrap-up on both games]
Saint Mary’s 3 Carleton 1 : [Tournament Final]

Sept. 26: The Flood of News Continues

There are even more reports from around the league this afternoon, so here we go.


The Bison Roster Page now lists 27 names. The former #3 Blair Osiowy has been released and the new #3 is Eric Mestery, who played in Brendan Rowinski's #10 jersey last weekend. They have 3 goaltenders, 8 defencemen, and 16 forwards. With 3 forwards injured they could not realistically cut anybody else. IMO, Osiowy looked pretty good and would have been one of Regina's better defencemen. They have also reposted the CW's coaches' poll story.


The Mount Royal Cougars Preview is now up. This blurb tells what it's like to move up from last year:
Quote:
Head coach Jean Laforest went on a recruiting rampage during the summer and added 10 new student-athletes for the Cougars’ inaugural season in the Canadian Interuniversity Sports (CIS) league.

Graduating one member off last year’s squad, that means some members of the team that had a 22-2-1 regular season record in the final year in the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference lost their spots.

“Moving to a higher level, you can’t stand pat,” said Laforest.

“It’s not always a pleasant situation because some players have been here for one or two years and are being displaced. But that’s the reality of sport at an upper level.You give everyone the opportunity to make the hockey club, but the reality is not everyone will make the transition.”

The UBC Preview is also up.
Quote:
“Our goal from day one of training camp is to win a CIS Championship,” said Dragicevic who won a national title with Acadia in 1993. “Last year it was simply to make the playoffs, but this year we believe we have the right mix to be legitimate contenders. It's a long journey, but we have players here who have won championships and national titles before and we will be relying on them to show our other guys what it takes to be a champion.”

The Thunderbirds are coming off a season in which they finished 12-12-4 during the regular season and lost in three games to Calgary in the opening round of the playoffs. 21 players from that team are back and will be joined by an impressive group of recruits.

They include, defencemen Neil Manning (Nanaimo, BC), Kevin Smith (North Vancouver, BC), and Linden Saip (White Rock, BC) and forwards Brad Hoban (Victoria, BC), Joe Antilla (Madiera Park, BC, Dillon Wagner (Keephills, AB), Scott Macdonald (Surrey, BC), and Jessi Hilton (Sherwood Park, BC).

“We really identified our needs this offseason by bringing in puck moving 'd', more depth up front, and bigger guys along the walls,” said Dragicevic, who was named the Canada West Coach of the Year in 2011-12. “It's been our best recruiting class that we have had ever had and we expect all these guys to be impact players. With these additions, we feel we have improved our team the most of anybody in the Canada West. Now it's a case of starting the process off right and showing our guys the importance of creating a culture of winning from the very first day. ”
I don't disagree with the argument that UBC did the most ON PAPER to improve their team from a year ago. However, UBC was more than the sum of their parts last year. This was in stark contrast to their club tradition of being much less than the sum of their parts. IMO, UBC should be part of a "big 5" in the CW, rather than being in a constant battle with Regina and Lethbridge at the bottom. While I have them pegged at #5, I will need to see performance before I am convinced they have achieved a change of status as a program.


The CW conference-wide preview is also up now. There is a blurb on each team with records, arrivals, and departures duly noted.

Last year the Bisons had four one-goal games with the Evil Monkeys. They won 3, bit one was reversed. The Monkeys scored with too many Monkeys on the ice in OT, after which the goal was waived off and a penalty assessed. The bad karma ultimately pushed them down the standings and out of first place for the first time in eons. In fact, their ill-gotten extra point against the Bisons is all that enabled them to finish second, just ahead of Sask.

FWIW, the CW coaches poll has a tight 3-way race for first this year with Manitoba at #2 and Saudi Alberta at #3.

Three monkeys have escaped the zoo: forwards Jean-Pierre Szaszkiewicz and Lindsay Nielsen, and defenceman Ian Barteaux. A very low turnover for a university hockey team. The replacements are forwards Burke Gallimore, Rhett Rachinski, and Torrie Dyck, and defenceman Brennan Yadlowski. Gallimore and Rachinski are both WHL grads with over 30 goals last year. Dyck is an Augustana transfer.

My overall impression is that both teams should have similar records to what they had last year. Every point will be vital.

ELSEWHERE:


CALGARY DINOS (0-0-0, 3-3-0)
LETHBRIDGE PRONGHORNS (0-0-0, 2-2-0)

This series is a home and home and, unlike the others, starts Thursday (in Lethbridge) and finishes Friday (in Calgary).

Brock Nixon will be the Captain of the Dinos this year. Both sides split their pre-season games, but the H0rny Ones' only wins were over ACAC teams. Calgary was a disappointment last year. Only a late spurt allowed them to stem a strong challenge from UBC and hang on to 4th place. They rallied in the playoffs to edge the Bisons and then lose game 3 in OT to Sask in the final. IMO, the Dinos look to be a strong 4th place team again. Their recruits seem to be a notch below their departures.

The H0rny Ones were desperately short of Viagra last year. Only Regina's ineptitude and a return to the 6-team playoff format allowed them to make the playoffs. IMO, they have a decent crop of recruits, but those only replace the quality departees.


SASKATCHEWAN HUSKIES (0-0-0, 2-1-1)
MOUNT ROYAL COUGARS (0-0-0, 2-1-1)


Links:
|> [Live Stats Friday] : [Live Stats Saturday]

This series will be of interest because it represents Mount Royal's conference debut. They jump into the deep end by facing the defending champions. I am interested in seeing just how Sask will look with some turnover at the upper end of the depth chart. Gone are forwards Kyle Ross, Shaun Vey, Travis Brisebois, and Brenden Dowd, and defencemen Dylan Hole, Curtis Kulchar, and Jesse Zetariuk. The replacements are forwards Jesse Ross, Kenton Dulle, Jordan Peddle, Brandon Herrod, and Marc-Andre Carre, and defencemen James Bubnick and Andrew Blanke. They also now have a third goaltender, Blake Voth.


UBC THUNDERBIRDS (0-0-0, 2-0-0)

It is the opening weekend, yet IMO this is a crucial series for the Banjo-Cats. If they get swept at home in this series it could be a long, cold winter in Regina.

My only question: Has UBC prepared adequately? All they have played is two exhibitions against SFU from the BCIHL.

Sept. 27: Regular Season Begins

September 27, 2012

OUT OF TOWN SCOREBOARD:


CALGARY DINOS 4
LETHBRIDGE PRONGHORNS 3

(in overtime)

Links:
|> [LS Summary] : [CIS Boxscore]
|> [U of L Game Story] : [Reposted at U of C : at CIS : at CW]


The H0rny Ones and their inter-provincial rivals from Bedrock got a jump on the rest of the CW by starting their regular season on Thursday night. I did not see the whole game, but did see the end of the third period and the overtime.

Lethbridge took a page from their old playbook. They were massively outshot, but kept the game close and squeezed out a point in overtime. The `Horns had a 3-2 lead after two periods. The Dinos outshot them 15-5 in the 3rd as they pushed hard to equalize, and then to try to win. At the end of the 3rd it was the Dinos applying all the pressure.

But overtime was different. The teams traded rushes, and Dino goaltender Dustin Butler made the save of the night on a breakaway. Each team had 3 shots in the 4 minutes of OT.

OUT EAST:

Moncton 3 St. Francis Xavier 5 : [Game Story]
Laurier 4 Windsor 5 (ot) : [WLU Schedule/Results]

NEWS:


A Weekend Preview is up. They also have a Thursday Round-up, which has just the one game. I hope they consistently post this, especially after the busy Friday and Saturday night schedules all season long.


The CW has a pdf format Weekly Update #1. This one is worth printing because it includes the final stats from 2011-12 for each team, so it is worth saving. They put out one of these each week last year, hopefully it continues.

Also, Evan Daum has a two part team-by-team preview at The Edmonton Journal, now that South Campus Sports seems dormant. Part 1 covers the Big Four, and Part 2 covers the bottom four.


The debut of the Her Majesty's Kittens has the papers in Bedrock talking. There are stories at both The Calgary Sun and The Calgary Herald. From The Calgary Sun:
Quote:
The 12-time ACAC champion Mount Royal Cougars men’s hockey program has been preparing to make the transition from the college level to the CIS for a couple years now, but despite all the preparation, nothing compares to the real thing.

...

“From a talent perspective, we’re not a top program,” Laforest admitted. “In order to overcome that, it’s work ethic, commitment, motivation and making sure we compete for 60 minutes. That’s the big message for us this year. It has to be full out 60 minutes. It can’t be 20 or 40.”

Knopp is fine with a little bit of pressure and a 2-2 pre-season record helped build a bit of confidence heading into the opener.

“I know a lot of people will be looking at the scores to see how we hold up in the league,” the 6-foot-1, 198-lb., third-year winger said. “I think we made a pretty good impact during exhibition games, which gives up a little more respect around the league.”
The Calgary Herald added:
Quote:
The Cougars enter into this new fellowship with a reputation for excellence. They’ve won the ACAC title twice in the past seven seasons and last year (22-1-3) finished their residence with a bronze medal. But taking in the entire picture — on-ice as well as off — this is a brand new kettle of fish for MRU.

“We fly to Winnipeg, we fly to Vancouver . . . even the logistics of a road trip is totally different,” agreed Laforest. “The amount of organization that goes into it . . . drastically different. The venues we play in are larger than the ones we traditionally played in. The cities, they’re all major centres in western Canada. It’s a whole different environment from where we were.

...

The Cougars couldn’t have asked for a greater challenge. Canada West houses some of the best programs in the country, including perennially top-10 ranked Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan, the defending conference champ and season-opening opponent Friday and Saturday at Flames Community Arenas (7 p.m. both nights). Add to the mix a tough Calgary squad and you have a recipe for great fun every weekend.

But Laforest insists it isn’t about this year, or even next year. It’s about the process of becoming like those other institutions; a school where players will want to come.
UP NEXT:

Sept. 28
x Queen’s at Acadia
x UQTR vs Saint Mary’s
x St. Francis Xavier vs UPEI
x New Brunswick at McGill
x York Invitational Tournament
Semi-Final #1: Ryerson at York
Semi-Final #2: UOIT vs Toronto
