Laurier ices the puck constantly for usually the last 10-12 minutes in the 3rd if they have a lead, and there is always a linesman at the bench not allowing the player change.

Good win for Lakehead. Lakehead fan's would know better than me, but I would rank their top forwards likely as
1. Caria
2. Frazee (off of size/points I will guess)
3. McDonald
4. Beljo
5. Sergerie
6. Hammond

Gamache has put up good numbers, but I think he is more a product of the other top players. Of those 6, they had 2 in the lineup last night, and regardless of how they have done compared to expectations, Calgary is still a strong group. Interested to see how they will match up again.

I think he may be mistaken, because I have seen this used throughout the year at LU games. To be fair, it was far more evident at last nights game than any other this season.

Dec 2: Bisons 3, Monkeys 2

December 2, 2011

THE HERD IS NOT MONKEYING AROUND


ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS 2
MANITOBA BISONS 3


|> [U of M Story] : [U of A Story] : [CW Friday Recap]
|> [LS Summary] : [CIS Boxscore] : [CIS Friday Round-up*] : [CW Standings]


The Bisons notched a key win over the Evil Monkeys. The win, combined with the Banjo-Mutts' win, leaves the three sides tied atop the CW standings. If not for Saudi Alberta being granted special permission to score with too many mone=keys on the ice, Manitoba would be 1st, Sask 2nd, and Alberta 3rd. The game can be seen in the "on demand" section at CanadaWest.tv. The recording starts about 10-15 minutes early so you hear sound-checks and see a team practicing.

The Bisons started slow and in fact looked somewhat "off". They were down 1-0 on a goal by Jets' prospect Levko Koper. The Bisons got it together as the period progressed. A point shot from Jeremy Schappert was deflected by Brenden Rowinski (6 goals in 10 games) to level the scores. Another point shot from Travis Mealy on the PP with 4 seconds left made it 2-1 for the Bisons.

The Bisons carried the play early in the 2nd period and Blair Macaulay scored (his 13th) from the point two minutes in and victory seemed just around the corner. Especially when a monkey was assessed two minutes for an evil deed and the Bisons went on a PP and just missed on several good chances. A golden opportunity for a 4-1 lead went amiss. Instead, Alberta rallied and in the end left the period) in which shots were 18-17 for Manitoba) down only one goal.

Things were back to normal in the 3rd. Alberta was held to 8 shots and there were no goals, and generally few good chances.

While I plan on attending Saturday's rematch live and in person, for those planning on watching the Jets on HNIC, you can also follow the Herd on CanadaWest.tv.

OUT OF TOWN SCOREBOARD:


REGINA COUGARS 2
SASKATCHEWAN HUSKIES 10


|> [U of S Story] : [LS Summary] : [CIS Boxscore]


What a blow-out. Maybe the Premier of Saskatchewan should create some interest in the rematch by declaring an "Outhouse Bowl" where the winner gets a fresh sliver-free outhouse in the middle of their campus. Yee=haw! That would generate interest. I wonder if Regina can win 2-1 for a split? That would be ironic. They have managed to scrounge such points this year. The Saturday night rematch is also scheduled for CanadaWest.tv.


LETHBRIDGE PRONGHORNS 2
UBC THUNDERBIRDS 5


|> [UBC Story] : [U of L Story]
|> [LS Summary] : [CIS Boxscore]


The H0rny Ones need a shot of viagra if they want to be a factor in this year's race. UBC are all cozy in 5th place now and seem destined to meet Calgary in a quarter-final series. This one was tied 1-1 after two periods. Then UBC pumped in four goals in a 3rd period where they dominated 21-7 on the shot clock. There was supposed to be a live audio link but it was not on Friday night.


CALGARY DINOS 2
LAKEHEAD THUNDERWOLVES 4


|> [LU Story] : [LU Story and Summary]


The Thunder-Mutts picked up a tidy win over the Flintsones. Once considered a contender, Calgary now seems to have hit the skids. They went with Jacob DeSerres in goal. One would think they would want all 3 goaltenders to get some work on the weekend. Although it is not uncommon for some players with exams at this time of year to stay home.

Hmm, maybe I missed it like thook said. For sure it wasn't used last year, right thook? I remember saying to one of the guys that I would like to see it. I'll have to pay closer attention to that once the OUA games start back up. Like he said, it was really evident last night.

As for the top 6...Caria is easily #1. Omitting Frazee, I would say McDonald #2 is pretty clear cut as well. I would probably give 3 to Hammond. He has tended to perform much better at home than on the road, so he likely didn't do much in Laurier. He has more speed and better moves than both Beljo and Sergerie. It's odd that he's better here at home because we have a smaller rink than most. I would probably put Sergerie ahead of Beljo as well, for now, since he has done more for a longer period of time. They both lack high end speed and size, but they produce. Gamache is our most improved player in my opinion. He's a good two way forward but, like you said, the points are more so a product of playing with Caria.

We should make a Lakehead thread so we can stop taking over Manitoba's lol. Sorry Hollywood

Agreed. No more hijacking. Tight race in CW indeed, with any of 3 teams being able to potentially game sole possession of first after tonight.

Dec 3: Monkeys 4, Bisons 3

December 3, 2011

MONKEYS SALVAGE SPLIT HEADING INTO CHRISTMAS BREAK


ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS 4
MANITOBA BISONS 3


|> [U of M Story] : [U of A Story] : [CW Saturday Recap]
|> [LS Summary] : [CIS Boxscore] : [CIS Saturday Round-up*] : [CW Standings]


This was a golden opportunity for the Bisons to sweep yet another Alberta team. They are now 9-1 (or 8-1-1 after appeals) against the Province of Saudi Alberta.

The Evil Monkeys scored twice on d'oh! goals that snuck past Jesse Deckert and twice on questionable 5-on-3 PP's.

Scoring started 7 seconds into the game when Johnny Lazo dribbled one towards the net. Deckert took a nonchalant stab, missed, and it was 1-0. Play was more or less even for the rest of the period until Dane Crowley was penalized for hooking whilst killing a penalty (he actually lifted the stick of a Monkey), and Colin Joe made it 2-0. The Bisons picked up the pace once they killed their penalties and the pressure created their own PP. Jeremy Schappert then scored yet another goal from the point, and the Bisons trailed 2-1 after one.

The 2nd period got off to a rough start. With the Bisons killing a penalty, Chad Erb pushed over a Monkey who was hacking the goalie after the whistle. The last two weekends the officials have shown great tolerance for those who hack goaltenders after the whistle, and Levko Koper cashed in to make it 3-1 Monkeys.

There was not much action in the 3rd period. But midway through Darren Bestland cashed in to narrow the gap to 3-2. The Bison 4th line deserved a goal. The three d-men were doing some good work all weekend. It must be said that they were inn the midst of a line change when the goal was scored. The Bison attempts to tie the game were thwarted and the comeback was effectively laid to rest when James Dobrowolski chipped a one-handed swipe over Deckert's shoulder for the second d'oh! goal of the night. Ian Duval did score on a nice 3-way passing play to make the last 2 minutes interesting.

BTW, the Monkeys tried to deny their monkeyness by wearing the dark green sweaters with "Alberta" written diagonally across, instead of the usual Monkey face logo. They also had odd white-and-yellow socks that made them look like an east-European team of some sort. Maybe they should have зло мавп on those sweaters!

Here's how they lined up:

MANITOBA BISONS

Goal:
Deckert (Caligiuri)

Defence:
Schappert - Crowley
Mealy - Rumsey
Erb - Bobbee

Forwards:
Dittmer - Walker - Macaulay
Hellyer - Duval - Lowry
Rowinski - Benias - Cowan
Bestland - Lockerby - Flynn

ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS

Goal:
Mucha (Cyr)

Defence:
Joe - Craige
Lindemulder - Barteaux
Rowley - Carr

Forwards:
Reddick - Lazo - Gardner
Nichol - Nielsen - Szaszkiewicz
Rodgers - Dobrowolski - Toomey
Hickmott - Dailey - Koper

OUT OF TOWN SCOREBOARD:


REGINA COUGARS 0
SASKATCHEWAN HUSKIES 6


|> [U of S Story] : [LS Summary] : [CIS Boxscore]


When I saw the score I thought it made sense. Regina appears to have hit the skids. But, lo-and-behold, Regina actually outshot somebody! Newcomer Troy Moltz went the distance in the Regina goal. The Bisons will be hoping that Regina does not find their form over the holidays. The Herd will visit them January 6th and 7th in their next action.


LETHBRIDGE PRONGHORNS 3
UBC THUNDERBIRDS 7


|> [UBC Story] : [U of L Story]
|> [LS Summary] : [CIS Boxscore]


Like on Friday, this was a tight game (4-3 for UBC) after two periods before UBC put the boots to the H0rny Ones in the 3rd period. The weekend results seem to indicate that UBC will be facing Calgary in the 4 v 5 quarter-final and Lethbridge will fight it out with Regina to see who will be cannon fodder for the 3rd place team in the other quarter-final.


CALGARY DINOS 4
LAKEHEAD THUNDERWOLVES 5

(in overtime)

|> [LU Story] : [LU Story and Summary]


Calgary appears to have let one slip away. Kris Lazaruk started in goal but gave up 4 goals on 15 shots, Jacob DeSerres finished and gave up one goal on 8 shots. So Dustin Butler had the weekend off. Not sure if he was even available. One would think that an all-Canadian goaltender would get a shot if he was available. Meanwhile, Calgary amassed 40 shots of their own.

While Calgary has the talent on paper, there is no doubt that they have failed to gel as a team. After a so-so start, it appeared that they had turned the corner when they swept Sask. That, however, appears to be the aberration on their form chart. It looks like Calgary will be #4 and will face UBC in the quarter-finals.

Lakehead must be feeling good. Although they have steamrolled through the OUA West, they have had such a soft schedule that they are tough to rank. They could use a revived GPAC so they could face good teams all year long.

Great Plains Athletic Conference

actually it was a conference geographically inside the Canada West conference and the OUA
It included Lakehead, U of Winnipeg, U of Manitoba, Brandon U and U of Regina.
I am not sure what caused the shift. U of Winnipeg, Brandon and Lakehead all dropped some sports and left Manitoba with a number of sports with no conference to play in....and they looked to the Canada west conference.....earth shook, a bunch of AD gave up the farm ...they booted Lakehead back to Ontario and we got a 6 hour bus trip trip to our closest rival the water melon heads. some thing like that

Interesting. I wouldn't mind playing with the teams from the West instead of Ontario. Our guys have to fly everywhere anyway, and outside of the local boys, a lot of our recruits actually come from out west.

Our roster- 7 Thunder Bay, 6 elsewhere in Ontario, 5 BC, 3 Manitoba, 2 Saskatchewan, 1 Quebec, 1 Sweden

Of course, this is just our hockey team. I have no clue what the rest of our sports teams look like

Sask was supposed to join when they split the conferences but they ditched it at the last minute.

In football there never was a GPAC conference and Manitoba stayed in Canada West the whole time.

I believe that Lakehead (then called the Nor'Westers) discontinued athletics and this was the impetus to scrap the conference.

Interestingly, they never gave automatic berths to each conference in those years. They only invented that rule after so that Quebec would get a berth in the nationals even though they don't have a league.

Exam Break News and Notes

CW NEWS, NOTES, AND WORLD JUNIOR EXHIBITION GAMES


TEAM CANADA JUNIORS 7
CIS DINOHORNS 4


|> [U of C Story - at U of L at CW]
|> [Hockey News Tournament Page]


On December 13th the Team Canada WJHC team faced the Dinohorns in their final selection game. The win broke a two game losing streak for TC against CW opposition. They lost to the Husky-Cougars and a previous edition of the Dinohorns before the last two WJHC events held in western Canada. Also, TC split a pair of games against the Manitoba Bisons the year the tournament was held in North Dakota. I saw some of the game on FastHockey, which was fairly decent I must say. Though I don't know why they dub these teams "CIS All-Stars". Team Canada's PK was victimized and none of the goalies looked too sharp. Both sides used two different goalies from the TC camp.



TEAM DENMARK JUNIORS 0
ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS 5


|> [U of A Story] : [CIS Story] : [Edmonton Sun Story]
|> [LS Summary]


TEAM DENMARK JUNIORS 3
ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS 8


|> [U of A Story] : [Edmonton Sun Story]
|> [LS Summary]


The Evil Monkeys did a nice job on the Danes in the games played December 15th and 16th. The Danes are new to the WJHC and hope to stay around for next year's tournament. This is written about in Evan Daum's story at Canada.com and the Vancouver Province. They have steadily improved at senior level. On February 12, 1949 they were beaten 47-0 by Canada in what remains a record whitewash. As recently as 1994 they were beaten at junior level by 22-0 against Slovakia.

Manitoba Bison head coach Mike Sirant took a leave of absence to help them out. I would like to see them send a team over to play the Bisons.

The Danes had a pre-season tour of the QMJHL where they exceeded expectations. Their results were:

August 28th: Blainville-Bobriand Armada 5 Denmark 4
August 30th: Shawinigan Cataract 5 Denmark 4
September 1st: Rimouski Oceanic 3 Denmark 1
September 2nd: Acadie-Bathurst Titan 8 Denmark 6

Sure, that's 0-4. But not too long ago a 2nd tier national junior team would have lost badly to Junior "A" teams. Check the QMJHL standings. Those teams rank 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th in their respective divisions as I post.

STORIES FROM AROUND THE CIS



The CIS Blog has its final CW weekly round-up as does South Campus Sports. The stories share my view that one has to rank Sask-Man-Alta-Cal in that order so far.



Chris Benias was Bison sports male athlete of the week for the week ended December 4th. Benias has been a 4th liner and often a healthy scratch in previous seasons. Now with the team being heavy on D and short up front, he has been centering one of the top 3 lines and getting a lot of ice time.

Blair MacAulay was also named the WHL grad of the month for November-December. Since most CW players are WHL grads, this is an impressive award. He may be the best pure sniper in the CIS.

Incidentally, both Benias and MacAulay are both MJHL grads, also.



The Mount Royal Cougars are slated to join the CW next season. They are finishing up their last season in the ACAC in style, with a 13-1-2 record so far. The ACAC is odd this year in that there is a huge gap in the standings between 4th and 5th. Mount Royal is first at 28 points and are followed by SAIT, NAIT, and Augustana who all have 25. Then there is a 15 point gap between those teams and Portage.



The CIS site has a first half recap of the OUA with a team-by-team report. The big story IMO is that the OUA East has dominated the OUA West in their interlocking schedule.



The CIS Blog also has their final AUS weekly update story. There is also a story that Dalhousie has fired their coach, Pete Belliveau. Or is he going to be more of a GM/recruiter? Stay tuned for that one. They have stunk, so maybe devoting time to finding players for next year may be a good idea.



The final top 10 is discussed at Boxscore News. The Official Hollywood Top 34 is of course much more authoritative!

This is how they have it:

1. UNB (11-2-1) / 166 pts (14) / (1)
2. McGill (13-1-2) / 147 (3) / (2)
3. Western Ontario (13-1-2) / 122 / (4)
4. Saskatchewan (11-2-2) / 107 / (6)
5. Alberta (11-3-2) / 106 / (3)
6. Moncton (10-4-0) / 81 / (5)
7. Lakehead (13-3-0) / 73 / (8)
8. Saint Mary’s (10-5-1) / 41 / (NR)
9. Manitoba (10-4-2) / 38 / (9)
10. UQTR (13-5-1) / 21 / (10)

I do not see Alberta winning the Canada West this year.
Saskatchewan has better forwards, Manitoba better defence and Calgary has pretty good goaltending.
The U. of A. will also "lose" it's home ice advantage at Clare Drake Arena even if they win they come first in the Canada West.

EDIT: There is a PREVIEW now posted at the U of R site.

Finally, the Herd will hit the ice. The bad news is they will have to travel to Banjoland to face the Hillbillies, feline version. Neither side had any games throughout the break. So I suspect that the first game at least will be a little awkward.

The Bisons need a sweep. There are only 7 weeks left in the regular season, and each team has one bye week. So any points lost to Regina, even on the road, could cost them home ice advantage in a playoff series.

The Banjo-Cats have had a simple and not very successful formula: Get outshot by a wide margin and hope that Lucas Gore stops an obscene number of pucks and that the rest of the team cashes in on the PP.

SAIT CHALLENGE CUP:



January 2, 2012

Alberta Golden Bears 2
Calgary Dinosaurs 3

Lethbridge Pronghorns 4
SAIT Trojans 4


January 3, 2012

Alberta Golden Bears 4
Lethbridge Pronghorns 1

Calgary Dinosaurs 5
SAIT Trojans 3


|> [Day 1 Report] : [Day 2 Report] : [ACAC Site]

SAIT hosted a 4 team tournament earlier this week. Calgary took the title. Is this a sign of things to come? SAIT is in a tight race to catch up to Mount Royal in the ACAC. The blew a 4-1 lead in their game with Lethbridge. So a nice comeback for the H0rny Ones, but still no wins.

ELSEWHERE:


SASKATCHEWAN HUSKIES (11-2-2, 1st in OHT34)
LETHBRIDGE PRONGHORNS (3-10-2, 27th in OHT34)


|> [Live Stats Friday] : [Live Stats Saturday] : [Live Video both nights]
|> [U of L Preview]


There will actually be three games decided in this series. On Friday at 6:40 MST the teams will play the 3rd period of the game suspended due to a leaking Zamboni back in October. Sask leads that game 3-0. The Banjo-Mutts are in a situation similar to the Bisons in that they will be under pressure to get all 6 points. Meanwhile, Lethbridge will be striving to catch Regina for the 6th and final playoff spot. IMO Lethbridge looked better than Regina.


ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS (11-3-2, 5th in OHT34)
CALGARY DINOS (9-7-0, 12th in OHT34)


|> [Live Stats Friday] : [Live Stats Saturday] : [Live Video Saturday]
|> [U of C Preview - at CW] : [U of A Preview] : [Monkeys sign Ferguson]


This series is a home-and-home. Calgary could fall out of contention for a top 2 position this weekend. They beat the Evil Monkeys twice already in their earlier series, and again in the SAIT tournament. Calgary has an impressive team on paper. If they can get it together on the ice then Alberta is in trouble. It struck me that an over-abundance of new players was proving to be a problem. In goal, they used Butler against Alberta and then had Lazaruk and DeSerres split the Lethbridge game.


UBC THUNDERBIRDS (7-7-2, 14th in OHT34)
SIMON FRASER CLAN (9-0-3, 1st in BCIHL)


|> [SFU Hockey Site] : [SFU Live Audio] : [UBC Site]


Since UBC have a bye week they are using it to play Simon Fraser's BCIHL team. It will be interesting to see how SFU stands up since they are running away with the BCIHL so far.

Jan. 6: Bisons 3 Cougars 2

January 6, 2012

BISONS WIN ONE IN BANJOVILLE


MANITOBA BISONS 3
REGINA COUGARS 2


|> [U of R Story] : [U of M Story] : [CW Friday Recap]
|> [LS Summary] : [CIS Boxscore] : [CIS Friday Round-up*] : [CW Standings]


This game followed the Cougars' script. They were severely outshot but hung in there. The Bisons took a 2-0 lead in the 1st period, with goals from Mike Hellyer and Jered Walker. Brett Leffler had an interesting stretch. He took a penalty and Walker scored on the PP. He then came out and took another penalty 10 seconds after the goal.

The 2nd period was one the Cougars dream of. They were outshot 16-3, bit scored the only goal (by Leffler, no less). So after two periods the shots were 24-7 but the score was 2-1.

The 3rd period saw Blair Macaulay score his 14th of the season in the opening minute. Then nothing much happened until the Banjo-Cats notched one with 30 seconds left to improve the look of the scoreboard.

Joe Caligiuri went the distance in the Bison goal and Lucas Gore did what he could in the Hillbilly net. The Bisons used the same line-up as for the pre-Christmas games, with 3 defencemen on their 4th line. Hey, it's working.

OUT OF TOWN SCOREBOARD:

SASKATCHEWAN HUSKIES 5
LETHBRIDGE PRONGHORNS 2

|> [U of L Story] : [LS Summary] : [CIS Boxscore]

The teams first concluded the previously suspended game. The Banjo-Mutts led that one 3-0 after two periods. When the teams came out to play the 3rd period Friday night, the H0rny Ones took a dose of Viagra, Cialis, and probably several dozen oysters. Within 6 minutes, Lethbridge had tied the game on a natural hat-trick by Dustin Moore. They outshot Sask 15-4. But neither team could score in the final 14 minutes. So it was on to OT where the Mangy Ones scored.

In the full game it was all Sask. The final shots were 46-23 and Lethbridge was never really in it. So despite an heroic comeback to start the evening, in the end Sask left with all four points available to them. But I am sure Lethbridge will find the one point useful as they pursue Regina.


ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS 3
CALGARY DINOS 2

The Evil Monkeys won the away leg of the home-and-home series. The Dinos took a 2-1 lead in the 2nd period with a pair of PP markers. The combination of results boosts the top three even further ahead of the rest of the pack.

I saw a lot of this on the internet. UBC really dominated SFU in the 2nd and 3rd periods. However, they only scored once in 43 shots. At least that was the total late in the game on the shot clock. The stats are not on League Stat and have not been uploaded at either team site as I post.

Lethbridge may be in trouble...Dustin Moore took a hit late in conclusion of the suspended game and did not return at all for the remainder of the Friday games. It will be interesting to see if he will be in the line up tonight, if he is not that will be a huge loss for the 'bridge as he seems to be one of their only sources of scoring...

Jan. 7: Bisons 4 Cougars 1

January 7, 2012

BISONS SWEEP, TWO POINTS OUT OF FIRST


MANITOBA BISONS 4
REGINA COUGARS 1


|> [U of R Story] : [U of M Story] : [CW Saturday Recap]
|> [LS Summary] : [CIS Boxscore] : [CIS Saturday Round-up*] : [CW Standings]


The Bisons needed a sweep and they got it. The Bisons outshot the Banjo-Cats 47-18, including an incredible 21-2 in the 2nd period during which they amassed a 3-0 lead. It is impossible for 21-2 to be a misleading stat. Ian Duval scored his 6th and 7th goals of the season, Blair Macaulay notched his 15th, and d-man Travis Mealy will rejoice with his 2nd. (BTW, there are two other CIS players with 15 goals and two more with 14 so far.)

Also, each team switched goaltenders from Friday night. Jesse Deckert was in goal for Manitoba and newcomer Andrew Hayes made his debut for Regina, and was the 3rd star.

In reviewing the line-ups from both nights, I note that Tyler Schmidt in fact drew into the Bison lineup on defence, in place of Chad Erb. They are still using the 4th line of defencemen, as noted in Friday's recap. Former Bison Terrance Delaronde was scratched from the Cougar lineup.

The weekend results have left the Cougars a point behind Lethbridge in the race for 6th. The Bisons remain 3rd, but are now just 2 points behind Sask and Alberta. Next week the Bisons will have their final bye week of the regular season, while Regina will head out to British California.

OUT OF TOWN SCOREBOARD:


SASKATCHEWAN HUSKIES 2
LETHBRIDGE PRONGHORNS 3


|> [U of L Story] : [U of S Story] : [LS Summary] : [CIS Boxscore]


The H0rny Ones did everybody a favour (except Regina) by taking two points from the Banjo-Mutts. That makes for a 3 point weekend, and at least temporary hold of 6th place. I guess they deserved some points after that 3 goal rally in the conclusion of the suspended game on Friday night. Sask held the lead until 12 minutes into the 3rd period, but Lethbridge was not to be denied.

Sask is now tied with the Evil Monkeys, just 2 points ahead of the Bisons. Sask and Alberta will play next weekend, and the Bisons' only wish will be that there be no 3 point games.


ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS 4
CALGARY DINOS 2


|> [U of C Site*] : [U of A Story]
|> [LS Summary] : [CIS Boxscore]


The home-and-home series ended with a sweep for the Evil Monkeys. The year of disappointment continues for Calgary, who are now at 9-9-0. The surprise hear was that Alberta really controlled Calgary. The shots were 38-19 and from the brief amount I saw at CanadaWest.tv that really did reflect the play. Nevertheless, Dustin Butler held Calgary in there so that Taylor Stefishen was able o give them a 2-1 lead 3 minutes into the 3rd. However, Greg Gardner and Levko Koper put the Monkeys back into the lead before an empty-netter sealed the deal.

It now seems unlikely that Calgary can avoid the quarter-final with a 2nd place finish. They are 10 points out with 10 games left.


UBC THUNDERBIRDS 3
SIMON FRASER CLAN 1

(SFU won shoot-out 2-1 to win series)
|> [UBC Site*] : [SFU Site*] : [SFU Friday Story]


I saw some of this one on-line in a Simon Fraser broadcast. I would say that UBC controlled more play than SFU, however SFU looked to be a decent side. The BCIHL is evidently coming along, and SFU would look to be comparable to teams like SAIT, NAIT, and MRU. It would also appear that they were a lot more serious about this "tournament". Their announcers were treating it like the Stanley Cup and there was even a trophy. Since UBC's win evened the "tournament", overtime and a shoot-out decided the matter. The announcers talked about expanding the tournament next year, which would make sense. A two team tournament?

Meanwhile, there was no mention of this on the UBC site. Saturday morning, I did see highlights of Friday's game on Sportsnet. Maybe the CW should send them HQ highlights for other games, starting with Alberta v Sask next weekend, and continuing with Sask v Manitoba the one after that.

Would Simon Fraser or one of the other BICHL teams eventually make the jump to CIS?

Simon Fraser rejoined NCAA Div II a couple years ago mostly for better exposure for it's football, track and lacrosse programs. Their hockey team is a pay to play student run club team that is required to be financially self supporting. It is not a varsity team. Simon Fraser can offer athletic scholarships to it's varsity team players making them ineligible to play in the CIS.
The hockey team does a great job of recruiting JrA players. It's biggest competition in BC is UBC but because of the high academic standards at UBC not many of the best hockey players qualify for admission and can stay closer to home by playing at SFU. You can expect to see SFU playing NCAA Div II hockey sometime in the future.

Before last season Trinity Western announced that they were upgrading their hockey team to full varsity status. They had been a club side. This was also part of a plan to enter the CIS. I have not since heard anything further from them. From the standings it appears that they are not ready to make the jump.

The league also includes Thompson Rivers and Victoria, and neither has made any announcement of an intention to join the CIS in hockey. Fraser Valley also had a team, which folded before this season started.

The league also includes Okanagan College and Selkirk College, both of whom are in the BCCAC and are not yet Canada West members, nor do I believe they have any intention of joining.

Simon Fraser left the CIS to join the NCAA, and Eastern Washington is also in the NCAA. Since the NCAA does not operate a league in the region they are thrilled to have the BCIHL. Any loss of teams from the BCIHL to the CIS would really hurt them.

IMO, this type of 2nd tier league could be a model for Ontario and the Atlantic to follow. It is way cheaper. I would not be surprised to see TWU decide to stay put for so long as the BCIHL remains a viable league. It is my understanding that they no longer operate college hockey leagues out east.

For that matter, there used to be a 3-team MCAC league in Manitoba. It folded before last season due to lack of teams. One of the 3 teams was very weak a forfeited their final game, leaving just two teams. I would have liked to see those two (CMU and Assiniboine College) play Brandon, Winnipeg, and Red River College. That would have been a low-cost local league. But despite occasional bluster there has been nothing from Brandon and Winnipeg.

I cannot comment on the financial arrangement SFU has for their hockey team. But several statements you made are incorrect:

- They have athletic scholarships in Canada West. In some sports SFU has gained "scholarship space" and in some they have lost. IAE, SFU was not "maxed out" for allowable CIS scholarships when they left. In other words, under CW rules they could have issued more scholarships than they did.

- There is no NCAA Div II hockey league. There are Div III leagues, but I am not sure SFU is eligible, or interested. Note that Eastern Washington joined the BCIHL this year.

I'm aware that there is no Div II hockey league however SFU is rated as an NCAA Div II school but hockey is not included because it is not a varsity sport. Most Div II schools play ACHA and all are club teams like SFU.
Each province governs the amount of athletic scholarship money available to athletes. I have no idea what the cap is in BC however I seriously doubt that an athletic scholarship in BC would amount to a full ride (tuition, books, room & board and student expenses) like NCAA Div I. Most players coming from the CHL have scholarships that cover tuition and books only. Players with only JrA experience (no CHL scholarship) will need to bring some cash to school.

The ACHA would be a step down from the BCIHL, at least from what I have seen. If SFU and EWU wanted to join an ACHA league this year they would have. But both saw the BCIHL as an upgrade.

The CHL scholarship covers all "mandatory fees". The amount of scholarships available in the NCAA are conference- and sport-specific. For example, one league may have a rule that 14.5 scholarships are available for hockey teams in their league. This is a rough equivalent to a salary cap in a hockey league. The better the league, the higher the cap.

I do not believe that provincial governments regulate scholarships, except to the extent that they contribute greatly to a school's overall budget.

When SFU was considering a move to the NCAA (along with UBC) I saw all kinds of numbers on scholarships. While some sports gained "cap space", others lost. In the end, UBC chose to stay put in part because too many sports would have lost out. BTW, many sports which would have won already play outside the CIS, either in the NAIA or leagues along the lines of the BCIHL set up for just one sport.

In Ontario the basic athletic scholarship (also based on grades) max's out at 3500 for 2011/1012, for next year according to premier Dalton McGuinty the amount will be increased to 4500. Each school also has scholarships for various amounts available that have to be applied for.

The provinces don't govern the amount of athletic scholarships available to CIS athletes, the CIS does. There's a set amount of full-ride scholarships available to each sport and the schools aren't allowed to go over that (...). I believe for Men's Hockey that # is 14 bursary's of whatever amount tuition plus fees is for whichever school, Women's Hockey is either 8 or 9 full bursary's, can't remember for sure. Each sport is different.

Saskatchewan vs Alberta

This looks like a possible CanadaWest final.Friday and Saturday, Live video for both games.
Two teams playing well and tied for a share of the CanadaWest lead. Alberta is proving many wrong!
On the other side, Saskatchewan boasts the 3 top scores in Hulak, Bortis, Ross, with Bailey also sitting in the top ten in conference scoring. First place is key in order to force Alberta to play on the road for a change in the playoffs. Will the recent addition of Ferguson help the Bears get back to Freddy?
This series is huge for Saskatchewan!
