At least the Monkeys' site has a linescore, even if all it does is tell us who scored the Monkey goals. Could be a rough year for the H0rny Ones. Maybe the fact that the Monkeys got an early start gives them an edge over the `Horns. We'll see.

Thanks to Gilligan at CISfootball.org we have confirmation that this game was actually played! I do have to wonder why the team websites never had anything on it, though. It was played on September 10th.
Quote:
Nick Clark started in goal for Weyburn, and allowed 3 goals on 22 shots through half the game. Veteran, Nate Ferris then took over, but Regina kept coming. The boys really had to compete for puck possession, as the final shots ended up being 46-14 in favour of Regina. Last night was also a good opportunity to shake off the summer dust, and get reacquainted with physical play.

As usual we get a list of Evil Monkey goal scorers from the U of A linescore: Jesse Craige, Levko Koper, Torrie Dyck and James Dobrowolski, all returning to the zoo and clearly throwing feces already. So the Monkeys are 2-0-0 and the Herd 0-2-0 on the weekend.

The Regina results page was not updated on Saturday. The CW linked page has scores only.

The H0rny Ones must be thrilled to have a close game after being pummulled on Friday. And the Banjo-Cats go to 2-0-0 on the weekend. The bragging rights will be at stake when the Kittens face the Monkeys on Sunday.

This would have to be looked upon as compensation for the football victory by the Bedrock Boys over the Mangy Ones earlier in the day. Calgary is 1-0-1 on the weekend, with a game remaining against Lethbridge. Sask is 1-1-0 and finished.

Sept. 15: Monkeys Claim Regina Title

OUT OF TOWN SCOREBOARD

The Bisons had Sunday off, but there were two other games.

Both teams entered the game at 2-0-0 on the weekend. The Evi; Monkeys outscored their opponents 24-1 over 3 games. The 4-0 win over the Bisons looks like a good result for Manitoba in the circumstances.


CALGARY DINOSAURS 4

Calgary finished 2-0-1 on the weekend with this win. The H0rny Ones fell to 0-3-0, looking very much like the team they were last year, which is truly unfortunate.

good lord holley! The bears out scored their opponents 24-1 in the three games in Regina!?
Smoked someone from the college ranks, the Dinos twice and the who cares oilers from the fall camp that puts them at 6 and 0 thus far.
I think I now get why the NCAA legislates the same start date and preseason dates! Run aways like this can be bad for the league at the start of the year dont you think, or is it a pretenders go home mentality? Thank goodness our Jets rookies are playing the Bruins rookies this week,not the mid season form bears!!

There is not a strong correlation between number of pre-season game and season success. Saint Mary's typically just plays about 4 games. By the time the season starts the Bisons will have had 10, including 4 in Europe. They otherwise play 6 or 8 pre-season games.

The Monkeys won their games against Calgary and Manitoba but the scores were normal. The aberrant results were the games against Lethbridge and Regina. Those might equally be seen as a sign of weakness of those teams.

Also, since rosters and stats were not posted anywhere we don't know what the tournament games looked like.

Here are the CW cumulative standings so far:

Alberta ......7-0-0
Regina........3-1-0
Calgary ......2-3-1
Manitoba......2-3-1
Saskatchewan..1-1-0
Lethbridge....0-3-0
Mount Royal ..0-0-0
UBC ..........0-0-0

There's a little detail here: http://www.hockeyscene.com/hockeysce...id=2&nid=15168

The game was played in the village of Cocagne, NB, probably the closest decent rink to St. Leonard, the hometown of UdeM coach Serge Bourgeois. Moncton scored first, but UNB's special teams were the difference with two on the PP and one shorty. Moncton won the exhibition season opener against UNB 6-2 last season in a game played in a small Acadian village in PEI.

The "new and improved" Bison website is taking its sweet time getting up and running. The schedule link has the scores for last week, but no links. The roster has 2012-13 players, less the 5th years. And even the story on Macaulay going pro has not been added.

To top it all off, the games are at 2:00 because the Bummers play the Igloo Dwellers in a CFL game on Friday. Could they not move that to Sunday afternoon where it belongs and would not get in the way of campus Friday night activity? IMO the U if M should be firm on there being no Friday or Saturday night games once CIS sports start.

Looks like the usual runaway train in CanadaWest this year. Alberta may be better and the rest of the upper pack look to have downgraded a bit.

With Alberta essentially being the same as last year I fully expect them to win both the regular season title and conference banner.

Sept. 20: Bisons trample Banjo-Cats


REGINA COUGARS 3
MANITOBA BISONS 6


Links:
:. [U of M Boxscore] :. [LeagueStat Summary]


This was a matinee and I was able to leave work about 15 minutes before it started. The game must have had almost no stoppage time because I arrived with under 6 minutes left in the 1st period. And it was already 3-0 for the Bisons.

Since the website has no current roster, here's the line-up:

Goal:
1 Joe Caligiuri (34 Deven Dubyk)

Defence:
3 Pierre Landry - 4 Jeremy Schappert
12 Brock Sutherland - 24 Travis Bobbee
5 Lee Christensen - 22 Darren Bestland

Forwards:
21 Taylor Dickin - 19 Ian Duval - 6 Luke Paulsen
29 Luke Cain - 18 Dylan Kelly - 25 Paul Ciarelli
20 Aaron Lewadniuk - 15 Craig Scott - 16 Jesse Paradis
8 Jory Coates - 26 Justin Dalebozik - 9 Andrew Dunsmore

Scratches:
2 Dane Crowley D
10 Brendan Rowinski F
17 Austin Lauder F
27 Jordan DePape F
28 Reid McLeod F
35 Joey Rewucki G

Regina's Line-up:

Goal:
1 Mitch Kilgore (35 Lucas Gore)

Defence:
4 John Sonntag - 2 Ryan Dech
24 Ward Szucki - 5 Jordan Reeve
7 Mark Schneider - 6 Steven Turner
19 Sanfred King

Forwards:
20 Ryan Sawka - 10 Tyler Henry - 22 Troy Hunter
25 Cody Fowlie - 14 Craig Cuthbert - 11 Christian Magnus
13 Brock Appleyard - 12 Liam Brennan - 17 Carter Selinger
16 Brayden Nargang - 29 Tanner Lange - 21 Skylar Hladun

Scratches:
8 Austin Bourhis D
9 Tyler Penny F
15 Tyler Murray F
18 Brody Luhning D
28 John Neibrandt D
30 Andrew Hayes G

Going over the Bison roster, there were some previously unannounced arrivals and departures. Some names popped up from the European tour.

Arrivals:

3. Pierre Landry - defence - Briercrest Clippers - EP Stats
- He played just one year at Briercrest after having played in the MJHL, mostly with Waywayseecappo. Although he scored the opening goal, he is mostly a defensive type. They have only 8 d-men on the roster so I assume he will be kept in a back-up role for the 6 veterans they have.

8. Jory Coates - forward - Pembina Valley Twisters - EP Stats
- It is not often that grads of the MMJHL get a look for the Bisons. A few years back two goaltenders were vying for the role of 3rd string goaltender. But this 6'6" late bloomer could be a catch, especially if he sticks it out for 5 years and keeps improving. When he graduated from Midget he played two seasons bouncing between the Neepawa Natives of the MJHL and the Twisters of the MMJHL. In 2011-12 he stuck it out with the Twisters and scored 3 goals in 40 games, and none in 6 playoff games. But last year he caught fire as the season wore on. With 24 goals in 45 games then had 13 in 17 playoff games as he led the Twisters to a surprise championship.

9. Andrew Dunsmore - forward - St. Vital Victorias - EP Stats
- He is another MMJHL grad and has not played since 2010-11. He never scored in 33 MMJHL games spread over 2 seasons. The question is whether they'll keep all 15 forwards around.

26. Justin Dalebozik - forward - Steinbach Pistons - EP Stats
- He was acquired by the Pistons mid-way through last season and was a factor in them going from below average to a shocking provincial championship. The question is whether he can contribute some goals.

28. Reid MacLeod - forward - Sacred Heart University - EP Stats
- He played for the Stonewall Flyers senior league team as he red-shirted last year. He peaked as a junior in 2007-08 when he scored 47 goals in 57 games for the Flin Flon Bombers. But the next year he plummeted to 13 goals in 49 games playing for the same team. In 3 seasons at Sacred Heart he had 8 goals in 53 games. Could he regain his scoring touch? He did have 19 goals in 19 senior league games last year.

Departures:

3. Eric Mestery - The former 2nd round draft choice of the Washington Capitals appears to have left hockey again. He retired in 2010 when still a junior in the WHL before making a brief comeback with the Selkirk Steelers in 2011, and then another with the Bisons last year.

6. Brodie Melnychuk - The former Wheatie was a Christmas newcomer who stabilized the defence last year. He does not appear to be involved in organized hockey this year.

Back to the game at hand, since the game was in the afternoon the only fans there were people playing hookey. It very much had the feel of an exhibition game for that reason.

On the down side, Ian Duval was injured late in the 2nd period on a knee clip. Hopefully he will be available for the start of the season.

In general, the Kittens rarely generated sustained pressure. One goal was a deflection of a point shot, one a breakaway which arose from an ill-conceived line change by a d-man, and one point shot that Caligiuri would like to have back.

The Bisons will be challenged to score this year. They have lost Blair Macaulay, Tyler Dittmer, Matthew Lowry, Del Cowan, and James Henry. One factor, though, is that returning players often improve. Craig Scott, Jesse Paradis, and Dylan Kelly are now 2nd year players and all seemed to be more effective and had strong games. Paradis was the only one of those to get regular ice time last year, in fact Scott was usually a scratch. Paradis was the 2nd star. Kelly was used on both the PK and PP.

One surprise was that newcomer Luke Paulsen, recruited as a defenceman, was used as a forward. And he was so effective that he was named 1st star.

Rematch goes Saturday at 2:00 p.m. at the Max Bell Arena.

Sept. 21: Bisons Sweep the Hillbillies


REGINA COUGARS 1
MANITOBA BISONS 4


Links:
:. [U of M Boxscore] :. [LeagueStat Summary]


It was tough spending a sunny Saturday afternoon indoors watching a hockey game. I would have much preferred the traditional Saturday night game, but there you go. Also, this year's Saturday games are going to be at 6:00 p.m. so I need to get used to this. I personally dislike the 6:00 p.m. start time. The Goldeyes have done it for 2 years now. It is hard to get your Saturday afternoon done that 1 hour earlier. I digress.

The Bisons went with the same line-up as Friday, except that Ian Duval was not dressed and Joe Caligiuri had the day off. Here's the alignment:

Goal:
34 Dubyk (2 periods) - 35 Rewucki (1 period)

Defence:
5 Christensen - 4 Schappert
12 Sutherland - 24 Bobbee
3 Landry - 22 Bestland

Forwards:
29 Cain - 25 Ciarelli - 21 Dickin
6 Paulsen - 16 Paradis
8 Coates - 18 Kelly - 15 Scott
20 Lewadniuk - 28 Dalebozik - 9 Dunsmore

Scratches:
1 Caligiuri G / 2 Crowley D / 10 Rowinski F
17 Lauder F / 19 Duval F / 27 DePape F
28 McLeod F

NOTES; The line-up card listed Dalebozik as #26 but LeagueStat had him as #28, so I'll go with that. Paulsen centered a line and the wing spot was usually either Lewadniuk or Scott.

Regina's Line-up:

Goal:
35 Gore (1 Kilgore)

Defence:
4 Sonntag - 5 Reeve
24 Szucki - 7 Schneider
8 Bourhis - 2 Dech
19 Luhning

Forwards:
20 Sawka - 10 Henry - 22 Hunter
25 Fowlie - 14 Cuthbert - 11 Magnus
13 Appleyard - 12 Brennan - 6 Turner
16 Nargang - 29 Lange - 21 Hladun

Scratches:
9 Penny F / 15 Murray F / 17 Selinger F
19 King F / 28 Neibrandt D / 30 Hayes G

NOTES: Although the line-up card listed Sanfred King as #19, LeagueStat named Brody Luhning as #19 instead of #18. IAE I never noticed #19 on Saturday. As with Friday Magnus switched from #23 to #11 and Fowlie switched from #27 to #25. The only switch was #8 for #17, with #6 switching from D to F.

Going into the season my concern was with scoring. However, with 10 goals in 2 games maybe that ought not to be a concern. Perhaps injuries are the bigger concern. Other than the goaltender switch, the Bisons never dressed any of Friday's scratches. Even though Duval was sidelined they played with a 19 man roster rather than activate a player from the sub list.

Last year I saw enough of the Feline Hillbillies to get sick of them. They came here in pre-season, regular season, and playoffs for a weekend double-header. They looked like crap in all 6 games. While they have not made any earth-shattering additions, they have added bona fide defencemen. Last year they had forwards forced to drop back. This year they are tougher to play against, although they remain several notches below the Bisons in calibre.

However, Regina over-achieved something fierce last year. I was constantly shocked to look at the out-of-town scoreboard and see them pick up points here and there such that they left the New-Kittens-on-the-Block and the H0rny Ones in the dust.

Even though the Bisons did not trash the Cats like last year, they did ring up two convincing wins. The defence, even without Captain Crowley, limited them to mostly low quality shots from the perimeter.

Here's how it went. The Bisons got off to a quick 2-0 lead, with goals by newcomers Aaron Lewadniuk and Taylor Dickin within the first 3 minutes. Lewadniuk's goal was a conversion of a nice passing play. Dickin's was a solo effort after he was tripped on a delayed penalty call. Once ahead the Bisons seldom made any venturous offensive plays.

The intermission appeared to get the Bisons re-charged. Although the 2nd period was scoreless, the Bisons had dozens of nice passing plays which generated quality shots on goal. Each line was quite effective in that regard. Despite the lack of goals, the Bisons generated their most sustained offence in this period.

The 3rd period was much like the first. The Bisons scored two early goals within 3 something. Paul Ciarelli and Jesse Paradis converted passing plays. Then the Bisons went into a shell, playing very conservatively and generating few shots. There was also a steady flow of penalties which never helps a game to flow.

Regina's only goal was from d-man Mark Schneider during a 2-man advantage mid-way through the 3rd. The screen shot elluded Joey Rewucki, a rookie goaltender coming from the Selkirk Steelers. He made 14 saves in the period. Starting goaltender Deven Dubyk made 19 saves over two periods. They both looked sharp and would appear to be good backups for Caligiuri.

The three stars were Dickin, Lewadniuk, and Dubyk. Clearly, it was a good day for the new blood.

The Bisons are now 4-3-1 in the pre-season, and Regina is a respectable 3-3-0.

Next up for the Bisons is a home doubleheader against the Toronto Varsity Blues on homecoming weekend. Saturday's game goes at 7:00 (well after the Bison football game) and Sunday goes at 1:00.

Could MUN get a hockey team? It would appear unlikely:
Quote:
“I probably get asked about three times a year, ‘Why doesn’t MUN have a hockey team?’,” said Healey. “We’re not getting asked that 300 times. We have had a number of consultation sessions [...] and there isn’t a public outcry for the need of a hockey team at MUN. So, I’m not really sure whether it’s a possibility or not. It is something that we certainly like to look at. I’d be the first in line to say I’d be a number one fan of a MUN hockey team. But, if you do the math on it—to run a competitive men’s hockey program and maybe offer gender contemplative women’s program, you wouldn’t be far off from a million dollars to try and make that happen.”

Sept. 22: Out-of-Town Scoreboard

UPEI PANTHERS 1
OTTAWA GEEGEES 3

Link: [UPEI Story]

This game was played Saturday in UQTR's tournament. Both teams won on Friday, so this win gave Ottawa the title. Based on last year's performances that stands as quite a surprise. Final standings: Ottawa 1st, PEI 2nd, Moncton 3rd, and UQTR 4th.

ACADIA AXEMEN 4
SAINT MARY'S HUSKIES 4


DALHOUSIE TIGERS 4
ST. FRANCIS-XAVIER X-MEN 3

(in overtime)
Link: [Acadia Story - covering both games]

This was Day 2 of the tournament. The 3rd place game between the Cajuns and SMUskies was called due to an injury. Dal-Lousy took the title with an OT win, in what must also be considered a surprise. You know what else would be a surprise? If the CIS finishes their investigation into Dal's financial irregularities before **** freezes over.


NIPISSING LAKERS 3
LAURENTIAN VOYAGEURS 7

Link: [Laurentian Twitter]

Laurentian made their debut with a convincing win over their Northern Ontario rivals. All I could find was the score from the LU Twitter. Both sides have new logos.


And here are the CW cumulative standings so far:

Alberta ......9-0-0
Manitoba......4-3-1
Calgary ......3-4-1
Regina........3-3-0
Saskatchewan..2-2-0
Mount Royal ..0-2-0
Lethbridge....0-3-0
UBC ..........0-0-0

ACAC/BCIHL Update



I did an update about a week ago on these leagues. The interlocking exhibition games continue, so here is what transpired over the last week:

Wed Sep 18 NAIT (ACAC) 5 Augustana (ACAC) 0
Thu Sep 19 Augustana (ACAC) 3 Red Deer (ACAC) 3 (OT)
Fri Sep 20 Briercrest (ACAC) 0 Minot State (ACHA) 2
Fri Sep 20 Thompson Rivers (BCIHL) 2 Red Deer (ACAC) 2
Fri Sep 20 SAIT (ACAC) 5 Simon Fraser (BCIHL) 3
Fri Sep 20 NAIT (ACAC) 2 Portage (ACAC) 1
Fri Sep 20 Selkirk College (BCIHL) 3 Concordia (ACAC) 2
Sat Sep 21 Briercrest (ACAC) 0 Minot State (ACHA) 4
Sat Sep 21 Simon Fraser (BCIHL) 3 Red Deer (ACAC) 2 (OT)
Sat Sep 21 Thompson Rivers (BCIHL) 4 SAIT (ACAC) 2
Sat Sep 21 Augustana (ACAC) 8 Portage (ACAC) 2
Sat Sep 21 NAIT (ACAC) 3 Selkirk College (BCIHL) 2 (OT)
Sat Sep 21 MacEwan (ACAC) 4 Concordia (ACAC) 2
Sun Sep 22 MacEwan (ACAC) 6 Selkirk College (BCIHL) 4


LINKS:

It would seem that the two leagues are a fairly even second tier of intercollegiate hockey out west. It also seems that Red Deer, as a first year program, are going to be competitive.

Weekend Preview: Bisons Got the Blahs!



TORONTO VARSITY BLUES (OUA: 0-0-0, 0-0-0) at
MANITOBA BISONS (0-0-0, 4-3-1)


Saturday, September 28th, 7:00 p.m. CDT @ Max Bell Arena
Sunday, September 29th, 1:00 p.m. CDT @ Max Bell Arena

:. [Every Link Re: CIS Hockey] : [CIS Exhibition Schedule]


There are no new links at GoBisons.ca. It seems that new content was sacrificed when they updated the web page. However, once the games begin there should be live updates at LeagueStat, as happened last weekend.

The first thing I will want to check is the number of players available to the Bisons. Last weekend, once Ian Duval was injured on Friday, they played one short on Saturday.

This is the last weekend of play before the regular season starts next weekend with a home series against the Evil Monkeys. Are the Bisons ready for the challenge?

The Blahs were once the dominant team in the CIS, back when Tom Watt was their coach. Back then a player could stay on the team for 8-9 years if they were getting a PhD. In recent decades they have become very average. Last season they went 15-15-8 overall, and were 24th in the OHT35. This is how I broke down their season:
Quote:
v OUA-x`````` 1-2-0
v AUS-x`````` 0-2-0
v NCAA-x``````0-2-0
Exhibition``````````````1-6-0

v A`````````` 0-3-1
v B`````````` 2-3-3
v C``````````11-3-2
Conference```````````` 13-9-6
v B`````````` 1-0-2
Playoffs````````````````1-0-2
Total``````````````````15-15-8``````````B


The Blahs had the weakest schedule in the CIS with 16 games against C teams. They did, however, manage to have a good series against Ottawa where they were eliminated with two OTLs. This team could benefit from a tougher schedule next year. To their credit, they did have non-conference games against Acadia and SMU.
Is a trip out west their idea of seeking a tougher schedule?

What I would like to see from the Bisons is a return to the line-up from the players scratched last weekend:
2 Dane Crowley D
10 Brendan Rowinski F
17 Austin Lauder F
27 Jordan DePape F
28 Reid McLeod F

Those players, with Ian Duval, would significantly raise the level of the team.

It is funny that neither team from Banjoland will be in action this weekend. It must be in commemoration of St. Cletus Day. (He's the one who brought the first outhouse to Saskatchewan!)

ELSEWHERE:



ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS (0-0-0, 9-0-0) at
CALGARY DINOSAURS (0-0-0, 3-4-1)


The Monkeys swept the Bedrock Boys in a pair of exhibition games earlier on this year. These two games will give them 11 pre-season exhibition games, which must be some sort of a record. Can they sweep? The Friday game will be played in the Town of Bedrock and Saturday's rematch will be in St. Albert.



LETHBRIDGE PRONGHORNS (0-0-0, 0-3-0) at
MOUNT ROYAL COUGARS (0-0-0, 0-2-0)


These teams will play just the once this weekend. Last year's bottom two teams have started winless through 5 combined losses. Not a good sign.



SIMON FRASER CLAN (BCIHL: 0-0-0, 2-1-0) at
UBC THUNDERBIRDS (0-0-0, 0-0-0)


The Clown have so far played three games. They beat Trinity Western and then split 2 games against ACAC teams, losing to SAIT 5-3 and beating the new team from Red Deer 3-2 in OT. The Tweety-Birds have yet to play. The Clown really get up for these games. Still, they always get outshot by a large margin and pray they have a hot goaltender. The teams have played 4 games over the last 2 years. In 2011 each team won a game by a 3-1 score. In 2012 UBC won 8-0 and 4-3.

The CIS Blog ha sput up the AUS preview. In addition to coverage of the exhibition games, it deals with the three bids to host the U-Cup, the Dalhousie soap opera, and the roster-limit rule. Each team can only use 22 non-goaltenders per season. When injuries hit this could be problematic.

Sept. 27: Out of Town Scoreboard

Since the Bisons are playing a Saturday-Sunday doubleheader this weekend, Friday night is devoted to the Out-of-Town Scoreboard.


LETHBRIDGE PRONGHORNS 2
MOUNT ROYAL COUGARS 5

Link: [LS Summary]

The New-Kittens-on-the-Block entered the win column to avoid being shut-out in the pre-season. The H0rny Ones need to be concerned. After last year's debacle they are already 0-4-0. The Kittens built a 4-0 lead before the Viagra kicked in. But it was too little, too late. The closest they git was 4-2, despite outshooting MRU 14-4 in the 3rd period.

Lethbridge takes their 0-4-0 record to the States next weekend to play Minnesota and Minnesota State. Meanwhile, the Kittens are done, having played only 3 pre-season games. They open next weekend at home against Sask.


SIMON FRASER CLAN 2
UBC THUNDERBIRDS 6

Link: [LS Summary]

The Tweety-Birds took game one of the double-header in convincing fashion. It is nice that they play at least one BCIHL team, but one would think they would be better off facing some better opposition. Next weekend they go way up north to face the two Alaskan sides, and that's it for their pre-season.


ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS 2
CALGARY DINOSAURS 3

Link: [U of C Story]

The Evil Monkeys have finally tasted defeat. The Dinos gave the fans in Bedrock something to cheer about with a win over their nemesis. It took 3 tries, but what the heck. The rematch goes Saturday in St. Albert. Next weekend the Monkeys are in Manitoba and the Bedrock Boys have been sentenced to a weekend in Regina as both sides open the regular season.

Sept. 28: Blahs Ride Goaltender to Win


TORONTO VARSITY BLUES 4
MANITOBA BISONS 1


Links:
:. [U of M Hockey Site (nothing posted yet)] :. [Bison Twitter]


I got to this game about 5 minutes in, as I waas trying to finish watching football first. There must have been more fans than they expected because they ran out of game sheets. I managed to grab an abandoned one in the 3rd period. Which is fortunate because for some reason they never uploaded data from this game to League Stat, as they did last weekend against Regina.

I did load the player numbers for the loine combos into my phone, and this is what they were:

Bisons:
Goal:

1 Caligiuri (35 Rewucki)

Defence:
5 Christensen - 4 Schappert
12 Sutherland - 24 Bobbee
3 Landry - 22 Bestland

Forwards:
21 Dickin - 25 Ciarelli - 29 Cain
16 Paradis - 6 Paulsen - 20 Lewadniuk
15 Scott - 18 Kelly - 27 DePape
8 Coates - 10 Rowinski - 28 Dalebozik

Scratches:
2 Crowley D / 17 Lauder F
19 Duval F / 34 Dubyk G

NOTES; MacLeod and Dunsmore were not on th eline-up card so I assume they have been cut.

Toronto:
Goal:

29 Willows G

Defence:
2 Turcotte - 6 Jackson
21 Werbowski - 26 Connell
3 Bernier - 24 Heide

Forwards:
17 Doyle - 22 Markovic - 25 Englebrechten
18 Luikkonen - 9 Boddy - 19 Brown
15 Klomp - 16 Van de Velde - 27 Cleverley
12 Valente - 23 Turner - 28 Deagle

Scratches:
4 Yolevski D / 5 Oakley D / 7 Halloran D
11 Knight RW / 20 Harris RW
30 Nishi G / 35 Sheehan G

NOTES: I am not sure who dressed as the backup goaltender.

Since no stats have been posted, this is an unofficial summary:

2nd 00:26 Manitoba: Dickin (Schappert)
3rd 02:00 Toronto: Deagle (Markovic) SH
3rd 04:50 Toronto: Cleverley (Klomp)
3rd 18:52 Toronto: Cleverley (Heide) EN
3rd 19:57 Toronto: ? PP

Shots on goal:
Manitoba ...... 14 16 13 - 43
Toronto ....... 7 5 8 - 20

As you may infer from the shots on goal, this was a very one-sided game. If the teams repeat their performance on Sunday afternoon, the Bisons will probably win 6-2. Blues' goaltender Brett Willows made at least a half dozen spectacular saves, and had some goalpost and cross bar assistance, to keep the Blues close. It was tough for Caligiuri. The Bisons were seemingly on pace for a routine win when a loose puck on a PP led to a 2-on-1 break and a game-tieing goal for the Blues. The second goal, he would like to have over. It was an unscreened shot from the top of the left face-off circle.

As you can tell from the scratches, Captain Crowley and Ian Duval did not suit up for the Herd. Hopefully they will be ready for the Evil Monkeys next weekend.

OUT OF TOWN SCOREBOARD

I am off to watch the rematch, so I'll update the out of town scoreboard after the game.

Regina 2 Saskatchewan 5
Calgary 5 Alberta 4
UBC 5 Simon Fraser 1
Moncton 4 Acadia 5
Brock 1 Dalhousie 2 (ot)
Carleton 3 St. Thomas 0
Nipissing 3 York 2 (tournament final)
UOIT 9 Ryerson 1 (tournament 3rd)
RMC v Ottawa - moved to Sept 29

I don't mind that. In fact, I would rather see a really bad team host than a team who is almost good enough to qualify. That way a deserving team does not get eliminated by a lucky-to-be-there team.

Well, while I know what was is not necessarily what is, Ryerson has had exactly 1 winning season in the progam's history when they finished above .500 (11/12, by one game). Moving to the OUA West this year is only going to make it tougher. Personally, I'd love to see them get better, but at the same time hosting the Nationals in Toronto is a bad idea...I can't see them drawing crowds. Leave it in Atlantic Canada or in the West where at least there is a fan base.

Sept. 29: Bisons Get a Split to End Pre-Season


TORONTO VARSITY BLUES 2
MANITOBA BISONS 4


Links:
:. [U of M Hockey Site (nothing posted yet)]


As was the case on Saturday, there was no League Stat upload for this one. (Also, no national anthem singer nor goal judges.) So here is everything (almost) that you would get if there was an actual link about this one:

Bisons:
Goal:

1 Caligiuri (1st period) - 34 Dubyk (2nd and 3rd periods)

Defence:
5 Christensen - 4 Schappert
12 Sutherland - 24 Bobbee
3 Landry - 22 Bestland

Forwards:
21 Dickin - 25 Ciarelli - 6 Paulsen
18 Kelly - 10 Rowinski - 29 Cain
16 Paradis - 15 Scott - 20 Lewadniuk
8 Coates - 28 Dalebozik

Scratches:
2 Crowley D / 17 Lauder F / 27 DePape
19 Duval F / 35 Rewucki G


NOTES: Same scrathes as Saturday, but Jordan DePape was added to the scratches. So the Bisons played one short.

Toronto:
Goal:

35 Sheehan (29 Willows)

Defence:
3 Bernier - 4 Yolevski
6 Jackson - 24 Heide
21 Werbowski - 26 Connell
5 Oakley

Forwards:
17 Doyle - 22 Markovic - 25 Englebrechten
18 Luikkonen - 9 Boddy - 19 Brown
15 Klomp - 16 Van de Velde - 27 Cleverley
11 Knight - 23 Turner - 28 Deagle

Scratches:
2 Turcotte D / 7 Halloran D
12 Valente / 20 Harris RW
30 Nishi G


NOTES: The Blahs dressed one extra defenceman for a 21-man roster and moved two starters from Friday to the pressbox.

And here is an unofficial summary:

1st 06:07 Manitoba: Bobbee (Coates & Paulsen)
1st 18:12 Toronto: Luikkonen (Brown & Yolevski)
2nd 19:55 Manitoba: Schappert (Paulsen & Dickin)
3rd 09:25 Toronto: Cleverley (Heide & Connell) pp
3rd 18:29 Manitoba: Rowinski (Kelly & Sutherland)
3rd 19:56 Manitoba: Cain (Paradis) en

Shots on goal:
Manitoba ...... 12 17 12 - 41
Toronto ....... 08 05 11 - 23

This game was very similar to Saturday's opener. The Bisons carried the play, limited Toronto (for the most part) to perimeter play, generated a massive advantage in territory and shots on goal, but could not score.

Toronto golatender Garrett Sheehan was very good in goal. He never made the spectacular saves that Brett Willows made on Saturday night. But he still kept his team in a game that could have over mid-way through the 2nd period.

The Bisons gave Joe Caligiuri the start and one more period in net. He was fighting the puck on Saturday and, since he appears tipped to be the #1, I don't think they wante dhim to face the Evil Monkeys coming off a game like that. So, he got one more period. Deven Dubyk gives me lots of confidence. Since the Bisons not only play two games against the Primates, they also play the No-Longer-Fighting Sioux, I suspect that the management will give each of them at least one start.

There must be some concern on the injury front. On each of the last two weekends the Bisons have dressed only 19 players for the second game. This time it was Jordan DePape who played just the once.

The Bisons shuffled their first three lines and played them all relatively equally. None stood out above the other. They all generated scoring chances by the bucket-load. But where is the finish? Was it just good opposition goaltending? These are the questions to be answered.

The 4th liners (Coates and Dalebozik) were used with a variety of linemates, often Ciarelli or Paulsen. I suspect that both are slated to be extra forwards this year once Lauder, Duval, and DePape are in the line-up.

The blueliners all looked good. I suspect that newcomer Pierre Landry will be the extra once Dane Crowley returns to the line-up. Over the weekend, Landry took a regular shift and was not out of place. Since Paulsen appears to have found a home with the forwards, I would feel a lot more comfortable if they had one more body on the roster. Maybe there is somebody in the pipeline.

The Bisons have finished the pre-season at 5-4-1, and the Blahs are 1-1-0.

The team also announced that the family of the late Wayne Fleming will be at Friday's home opener for a dedication ceremony. I am not sure what this entails but I am looking forward to it.

OUT OF TOWN SCOREBOARD


REGINA COUGARS 2

This was a late addition to the schedule, which I stumbled upon at the Regina schedule page. The Sask site is crappola. This is too bad since they are hosting the U-Cup this year. It would be nice if they had a good and easy-to-navigate website. I obtained a link for the game story on this one by going to the main sport site and clicking through to find a story. If you go to the hockey team's page, good luck. They have a roster page with a picture of each player and nothing else.

In this game Kenton Dulle scored a 3rd period hat-trick to win it for the Mangy Ones. The Canines are now 3-2-0 and the Felines 3-4-0 in the pre-season.


UBC THUNDERBIRDS 5
SIMON FRASER CLAN 1

This was the return match and was hosted by The Clown. Therefore, no LeagueStat for this game. The Tweety-Birds should have kicked off the rust with this series. Next weekend they go way up north to Alaska for a pair of games before starting the regular season on October 11th against Bedrock. The sweep makes the T-Birds 2-0-0 in the pre-season.


CALGARY DINOSAURS 5
ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS 4

The Evil Monkeys are now on a losing streak. A weekend sweep at the hands of the Bedrock Boys has not happened for a while. Maybe it is a case of teams starting to catch up to the Monkeys after they got off to an early start. Nevertheless, the Monkeys are still 9-2-0 in the pre-season (best in the CW) and the Extinct Ones are 4-3-1 (tied with Manitoba for second).

Canada West Exhibition Standings

Since no games are scheduled before the start of the regular season, here are the CW cumulative standings so far:

Alberta ......9-2-0
Calgary ......5-4-1
Manitoba......5-4-1
Saskatchewan..3-2-0
Regina........3-4-0
UBC ..........2-0-0
Mount Royal ..1-2-0
Lethbridge....0-4-0

People often debate the merits of the pre-season, but IMO this pretty much reflects what most would expect out of the CW this year. The Evil Monkeys will be favoured to finish first. Bedrock U, Manitoba, and the Mangy Ones should all be in the top 4 and very close to one another. The Banjo-Cats, British California, and the New-Kittens-on-the-Block could make the playoffs. (I really want to see the Birdies face somne CIS teams before judging them. Some nice recruits could make them a threat to the top 4.) And I fear for the H0rny Ones.
