2011-12 Manitoba Bisons/CIS Hockey Thread



MANITOBA BISONS 2011-12

There are, as yet, no official announcements of recruits for the Bisons, nor a schedule. However, there are some solid rumours, along with some announcements from other teams and some off-ice news. So I figure time to start my annual thread. The 2010-11 Thread can also be re-lived for posterity!

The rumoured recruits (linked to their Elite Prospects career stats) are:

Mark Friesen - goal - Swift Current Broncos
- He has 4 years in the WHL. He played two years in Chilliwack and two more in Swift Current. He was the #1 goaltender in Swift last year. With former all-star goaltender Steve Christie gone first to the Texas Brahmas and then Manitoba Moose (as a backup) for their playoff run, the Herd need somebody to fill some big shoes.

Matt Lowry - centre - Elmira Jackals/Binghampton Senators
- He is the only recruit not born in 1990. After two years each with the Medicine Hat Tigers and Brandon Wheat Kings he turned pro for a year and then red-shirted for the Bisons last year to regain his status. He is a highly-touted 2-way player. He peaked at 24 goals in 2008.

Neal Prokop - centre - Tri-City Americans
- He played one game with the Moose Jaw Warriors as a 16 year old in 2005-06 and had five years in the WHL with Moose Jaw, Regina, and Tri-Cities. He only played 27 games last year (10 of those in the playoffs). His peak was 22 goals in 2009-10.

Jordan Davis - forward - Topeka Roadrunners
- He is an Ontario boy and the only non-Manitoban in the recruiting class. He was with the Owen Sound Attack in the OHL in 2007-08 and then went to the Fort William North Stars of the SIJHL for two years before turning to the Topeka Roadrunners of the NAHL last year. He did have 33 goals in 52 games in 2009-10. As usual, it is hard to compare junior "A" stats to major junior stats.

Tyler Schmidt - defence - Tri-Cities Americans
- He has played five seasons for the Tri-Cities Americans and seems to be yet another solid d-man. He managed 11 goals and 42 assists last year.

Travis Bobbee - defence - Seattle Thunderbirds
- Like Prokop, he got a game in 2005-06 and then played five more years in the WHL. He went from the Lethbridge Hurricanes, to the Portland Winterhawks, then Swift Current Bronocs before closing his WHL career in Seattle.

Darren Bestland - defence - Vancouver Giants/Brandon Wheat Kings
- Last year was his 3rd with the Wheaties and he was dealt to Vancouver for the playoff drive. He has the highest PIM totals amongst the new blue-liners.

The CWUAA announced that the Mount Royal Cougars will be joining the league in time for the 2012-13 season. They currently play in the ACAC. So an 8 team league will have two teams named "Cougars"! Evan Daum addresses this development at South Campus Sports. He ponders the possibility of dilution. Since MRU already has a hockey team they have been competing for recruits. However, going CIS will no doubt get them more WHL grads in future years. They should be pretty good. They defeated another Calgary school, SAIT Trojans, 3 games to 2 in the ACAC final.

The CWUAA also announced that UBC will not be leaving the league for the NCAA. On the recruiting front, the Thunderbirds have announced four players:

Steven Stanford - goaltender - Saskatoon Blades (WHL)
Jason Yee - defenceman - Powell River Kings (BCHL)
Kyle Johnson - forward - Dauphin Kings (MJHL)
Cole Wilson - forward - Camrose Kodiaks (AJHL)

They will need a lot more bodies to re-stock their roster this year. The fact they will be staying in the CIS should make that job easier because most of their line-up from 2010-11 was ineligible for the NCAA.

The Regina Cougars also have landed seven new recruits, with two being WHL grads. The players are discussed at South Campus Sports and The Regina Leader Post. The players are:

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)
Andrew Hayes - Goalie - Cape Breton (QMJHL)

Both "name" recruits have a Brandon connection. Schneider and Hayes were both once Wheat Kings. Schneider was traded to Regina for the playoff drive and Hayes was not kept on for his overage year.

BTW, since the MRU Cougars will be joining the league, maybe all Regina teams should now be called the "Rams".

The Lethbridge Pronghorns announced they have signed Mike Reddington, captain of the Lethbridge Hurricanes of the WHL. Also, the U of L reported a $350,000 donation from Telus. The enigmatic H0rny Ones will also need an infusion of new recruits to be announced.

The Evil Monkeys were shocked when their head organ grinder resigned. Eric Thurston Howell III up and quit.

The Banjo-Mutts announced that Jeremy Roenick will be the speaker at a fund raiser. Hopefully, he will have the guts to call them out as uncouth hillbilly swine.

BCIHL goes international for 2011-12 Season

The British Columbia Intercollegiate Hockey League has approved the application of Eastern Washington University.
http://www.bcihl.ca/leagues/newslett...139&page=53475
Quote:
Eastern Washington University is located in Cheney, a town of about 10,000 residents located about 20 miles southwest of Spokane. The Eagles were previously a longtime member of the American Collegiate Hockey Association, where they competed in Division II and finished fourth in the nation in 2011.

"Our membership was very pleased that Eastern Washington expressed an interest in joining the BCIHL and I'm confident that they will quickly become a competitive and valuable member within our league," says BCIHL President Kim Verigin.
Current Members of the BCIHL are:
Okanagan College (Kelowna, BC)
Selkirk College (Castlegar, BC)
Simon Fraser University (Burnaby, BC)
Thompson Rivers University (Kamloops, BC)
Trinity Western University (Langley, BC)
University of the Fraser Valley (Abbotsford, BC)
University of Victoria

All of these teams have 'club' status with their schools except Trinity Western. Trinity Western was granted 'varsity' status last season with rumours that the team will join the CIS in the near future.

Recruits confirmed

The Bisons announced seven recruits. Not included from the rumoured list was goaltender Mark Friesen but added was Brendan Rowinski, a centre from the Vancouver Giants and Moose Jaw Warriors. He has had 6 seasons in the WHL and his high-water mark was 30 goals in 2009-10. He was injured for part of last year.

SCHEDULE ANNOUNCED

Canada West announced all schedules this week, most importantly men's hockey. It is kind of a funny start in that there are two series on each of the first two weekends. To make sense of this we will have to see what sort of non-conference games the teams have scheduled. I don't see that any team has released their non-conference schedule yet. I will keep checking the U of M Site for their announcement.

The Bisons first three weeks are away, bye, away. And 3 of their first 4 series are away against the other playoff teams from last year. So if they survive the start it should be clear sailing.

Instead of playing the extra series against geographic rivals, the Bisons will play UBC and Calgary 3 series each (i.e. 6 games). Oddly, their last two home series are both against UBC. When Mount Royal joins the league next year I suppose they will have a home and away series against each team, without bye weeks.

Here's a quick summary (there is nothing on their site as yet):

2011
Sept 30-Oct 1 Manitoba at Calgary
Oct 14-15 Manitoba at Alberta
Oct 21-22 Regina at Manitoba
Nov 4-5 Manitoba at Saskatchewan
Nov 11-12 Lethbridge at Manitoba
Nov 18-19 Manitoba at UBC
Nov 25-26 Calgary at Manitoba
Dec 2-3 Alberta at Manitoba


2012
Jan 6-7 Manitoba at Regina
Jan 20-21 Saskatchewan at Manitoba
Jan 27-28 Manitoba at Lethbridge
Feb 3-4 UBC at Manitoba
Feb 10-11 Manitoba at Calgary
Feb 17-18 UBC at Manitoba

Now with the NHL schedule coming out I can strategically draft games when my group gets together.

There is precious little in other news these days. Still no recruiting announcements at all from Calgary. South Campus Sports has a story about Der Fuhrer Dave Adolph returning in Hillbilly-land to coach the Banjo-Mutts. They have had, on paper, solid recruiting classes in recent years and two early playoff exits to show for it.

Canada West Exh. vs NCAA

Here are some exhibition games I found vs NCAA Teams. UBC is busy with three games in three days. I didn't check Hockey East or Atlantic Hockey (probably too far East for Canada West teams) and not all NCAA teams have posted their schedules.

09.30.11 | Alaska Anchorage vs NAIT

10.1.11 | Alaska Fairbanks vs NAIT
10.1.11 | Nebraska-Omaha vs UBC
10.2.11 | U. of Minnesota vs UBC
10.2.11 | Bemidji State vs Regina
10.3.11 | Minnesota State vs UBC

Other CIS Games
10.1.11 | Michigan Tech vs Lakehead
10.1.11 | Michigan vs UOIT
10.1.11 | Western Michigan vs UoT
10.1.11 | Ohio vs Windsor
10.2.11 | Colorado College vs McGill
10.2.11 | Minnesota Duluth vs Lakehead
10.2.11 | Miami vs Windsor
10.1.11 | Ferris vs UoT

1.2.12 | Lake Superior vs Western

Manitoba Non-conference Games In Europe

the University of Manitoba will be touring Europe to begin their season. They will be playing in Italy, Austria and Germany in late August, early September. Should be a great experience both on and off the ice.

EUROPEAN TOUR



I have found information on the first leg of the Bisons' pre-season European tour. They will be in a tournament in Renon (Italy) August 27-28 where they will play two of the following:
* SV Renon (aka Ritten)
* Fischtown Pinguins Bremerhaven
* HC Pusteral Wolfe (aka HC Val Pusteria)

I linked to the Google translate links for the team sites. The Italian sites were in German!

Fischtown is a German 2nd div team for whom several Bison grads have played in the past (Paul Deniset, Rob Smith, and Chris Falloon come to mind). The other two are from the Italian league. Pusteral was 1st and Renon was 4th last year.

I believe the Bisons are in the Bremerhaven tournament Sept 2-3 and also will play in Austria. I will seek out details.

They like their jersey ads:

It appears that the Bisons, in addition to the tournament in Ritten, Italy, will be playing two exhibition games. September 1 in Graz, Austria and on September 3 in Landshut, Germany.

The Graz 99ers play in the Austrian Elite League and boast an international lineup that includes former NHLer Yannick Tremblay.

The Landshut Cannibals play in Germany's second league.

this should be a great experience for the Bisons.

Possible recruit:

Jacob DeSerres is a goaltender with 5 full seasons in major junior, with Seattle and Brandon in the WHL and then going East to win the Memorial Cup with St. John in 2011. The Brandon Sun reports that he has been signed by the Phoenix Coyotes to attend their prospects camp and after that he may join the Herd.
Quote:
If he plays CIS hockey, it would likely be with the University of Manitoba Bisons. "I talked to (Bisons coach) Mike Sirant a lot through the year," DeSerres said. "It's a good team and they're losing their goalie, (Steve) Christie.
They also have an older story about former Bison captain Kip Workman heading to Holland. The team is callled "Eaters Geleen". He was with the Colorado Eagles in the CHL last year.

A potential walk-on is forward Kyle Turgeon, as reported in the Fort Frances Times. He is from that area and played for the Portage Terriers last year, and is attending the U of M this fall.

Bisons in Europe

Great team-building exercise for sure. They'll get to play against decent teams plus get a chance to see a different part of the world.

Another recruit?

Blair Holmes - left wing - Neepawa Natives
- The Natives announced that he is going to the U of M but don't say for sure that he will be playing for the Bisons. The Bisons often do not send press releases for the commitments of Junior "A" recruits, and have released nothing on this one. The story is also at the MJHL site. He is likely trying out. It seems that the team will need some forward depth. Here's how they describe him:
Quote:
Holmes played a total of 178 games for the Natives, setting a number of team records in face-offs wins, blocked shots and even strength plus / minus. Holmes also collected a few pieces of hardware during his time with the Natives organization. 2008 / 2009 Most Improved Player, 2009 / 2010 Named Team Alternate Captain, Unsung Hero Award and Hardest Worker Award, 2010 / 2011 Named Team Alternate Captain, Hardest Worker Award and Coaches Choice Award.
He only had 10 goals in 169 regular season games. So he would be a 4th liner/PK kind of guy.

Other news:

The H0rny Ones announced that they have recruited two goaltenders, namely Spokane Chief James Reid and Lethbridge Hurricane Dylan Tait. Scott Bowles is returning for them in goal, so it could be a season of bench-arming for them.
