    Jan 18: BISONS STAYING ALIVE IN BANJOLAND MANITOBA BISONS 5 REGINA COUGARS 2 Links: LeagueStat: [Summary] : [Report] CW Hockey Tech: [Summary] : [Report] : [Text] Boxscores: [US/CIS] : [CW] : [Coach's View] : [UofM] Stories: [UofR] : [rp @CW] : [rp @UofM] This was a battle-for-the-basement, but the win keeps the Herd's hopes alive. They close to within 6 points of Lethbridge, who play Sask today and the Bisons next weekend. With Zach Franko out with injury (joining a long list), the Bisons at least recovered captain Brett Stovin for the injured list. They also debuted a new defenceman, Ryan Carlson, a transfer from Wisconsin-Superior. Matthew Leblanc scored his first goal in the CW for the Bisons, and he Devon Skoleski (goal and assist), and Jeremey Leipsic (two assists) each had two points on the first three goals. It's always good to get some depth scoring. Defenceman Lucas Skrumeda also had a goal in that mix. Liam Bilton and Nick Zajac added empty-netters. Byron Spriggs stopped 27 of 29 shots for the win, and Dawson MacAuley stopped 38 of 41 in the loss. The rematch goes Saturday at 3:00, and hopefully canadawest.tv is up and running. Host Yare was doing site maintenance on Friday night just before 8:00, during the busiest night on the CW schedule across all sports. Bad timing.

    Jan 12: LOSS LEAVES BISONS TEETERING MOUNT ROYAL COUGARS 4 MANITOBA BISONS 1 Links: LeagueStat: [Summary] : [Report] CW Hockey Tech: [Summary] : [Report] : [Text] Boxscores: [US/CIS] : [CW] : [Coach's View] : [UofM] Stories: [UofM] : [rp @CW] : [rp @MRU] This was a game that could have gone either way. Once again, it was an empty-net goal which altered the scoreline at the very end. On the night, the shots were 30-29 in favour of the Bluegars. There were no line-up changes from Friday night, but for MRU scratching Jamal Watson in favour of Luke Simpson, who I did not notice taking a shift. The Bisons came out like they were shot out of a cannon. Liam Bilton notched his 4th of the season. MRU took some penalties for hits from behind, one of which knocked Zach Franko out of the game. Since they were already one forward short, the loss of one more made it a 3-line game the rest of the way. Byron Spriggs got the loss, with 26 saves on 29 shots and Riley Morris got the win with 28 saves on his 29 shots. Morris the Cat is a good goaltender. The loss leaves the Bisons 8 points behind Lethbridge for the last playoff berth. Next weekend the Bisons play Regina whilst Lethbridge faces Sask. After that, the Bisons host Lethbridge. Had the Bisons beaten MRU once, they would have had a great chance to vault into a playoff position in two weeks.

    Jan 11: BISONS EDGED BY BLUEGARS MOUNT ROYAL COUGARS 5 MANITOBA BISONS 2 Links: LeagueStat: [Summary] : [Report] CW Hockey Tech: [Summary] : [Report] : [Text] Boxscores: [US/CIS] : [CW] : [Coach's View] : [UofM] Stories: [UofM] : [rp @CW] : [rp @MRU] Preview: [UofM] : [MRU] GoBisons.ca: [WEEKEND PREVIEW: Volleyball hosts UBC Okanagan, men’s hockey, and more] GoBisons.ca: [Kearley Abbott and Byron Spriggs are Boston Pizza Athletes of the Week] The final scoreline is misleading. This was a 3-2 game late, then two shorthanded goals changed the final outlook. On a positive note, the Bisons had a full 20-man roster dressed. Even though they had 7 defencemen and 11 forwards. Here's how they lined up: MANITOBA Goal: 35 Spriggs (34 Sydora) Defence: 2 Henry 3 Christensen 23 Dwyer 11 Dyck 24 Lenchyschyn 25 Skrumeda 5 Paradoski Forwards: 12 Zajak 21 Brooks 8 Bolton 9 Franko 15 Jameson 29 Wasylak 22 Leipsic 10 Skoleski 17 Veloso 26 Leblanc 16 Martin Scratches: 1 Paulic 4 Nault 14 Freeman 18 Armour 27 Doerksen 28 Stovin 30 Brown MOUNT ROYAL Goal: 33 Morris (31 Cooper) Defence: 6 MacPherson 7 Lees 2 Helgesen 11 Bobyk 24 Jensen 27 Baker Forwards: 26 Rankin 17 Lindgren 23 Watson 15 Kroeker 28 Gerrie 8 Henry 10 Stephens 19 Chartier 18 Kennedy 12 Lipon 9 Zandee 16 Adamson Scratches: 3 Roberts 4 Green 13 Bly 20 Simpson 21 Pankewicz 22 Arnold 35 Hoflin The first two periods were totally different. In the first, MRU scored twice and outshot the Herd 14-7. Jessie Lees and Chris Gerrie had the Bluegar goals. The Bisons turned it around in the 2nd, dominating territory and the shot clock 15-5. However, a bad line change and a fumble at the offensive blue-line led to a 2-on-1 breakout and a 3-0 lead for the Bluegars. Brad Kennedy converted Mitch Lipon's steal of the puck. Then a Bison goal was waved off due to a premature whistle. It looked like one of those nights. Then came a Bison PP due to a routine trip, followed shortly by a 4-minute high stick to the mouth of Nick Zajac, and a too-many-men-on-the-ice call. During those, Zach Franko scored twice in 5-on-3 situations. With a comeback win a distinct possibility, the Bisons never mounted too much pressure in the 3rd. The shot stats said it was 13-9 for MRU, but it didn't seem like it. Nobody had a great shot on goal. Riley Morris got the win, with 29 saves on 31 shots. The rookie is 8-1-0, 1.80 GAA, .929 S%. Impressive! Byron Spriggs stopped 27 of 30 in the loss. The rematch goes Saturday at 2:00 pm at the Wayne Fleming Arena on campus.

The shots were 40-12, favouring the Mutts. Sam Ruopp, Collin Shirley, and Alex Forsberg had two goals each for the Banjo Mutts, and Carson Stadnyk scored his 11th of the season. Back-up goaltender Travis Child got the win, and Dawson MacAuley took the loss. Perhaps the moonshine and banjo music will flow in Saskatown for the Saturday rematch.

Jordan Papirny got the win and Garret Hughson took the loss. Friday's rematch was more of a replay. The shots were 39-16 in favour of the Dinos.

    Jan 4: HAPPY NEW YEAR! MANITOBA BISONS 1 ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS 4 Links: LeagueStat: [Summary] : [Report] CW Hockey Tech: [Summary] : [Report] : [Text] Boxscores: [US/CIS] : [CW] : [Coach's View] : [UofM] Stories: [UofA] : [rp @CW] : [UofM] GoBisons.ca: [WEEKEND PREVIEW: Top two matchup in women’s hockey, women’s volleyball, and more] Preview: [UofA] GoBisons.ca: [Bisons giving back during holiday season] GoBisons.ca: [MID-SEASON REVIEW: Updates on Bison men's and women's hockey] Colton Veloso: [Elite Prospects] : [IHDB] : [Game On] It’s good to be back! Unfortunately, after I bounced back from my own off-season surgery, the death of my business partner forced me to relocate in October. This left me no time at all for recreational internetting. I still went to the Bison home games, but there was no time to write about them. Did the Bisons ever fall apart during my internet absence. The big problem has been injuries. They usually had a short bench, and generally by two players. I have the impression that some players, though dressed, would not have been had options existed. In past years they could have overcome this. However, the early departure of some top-end and mid-range players meant that some Junior A bodies had to step in to key roles, rather than the support roles normally given. How will they fare in the second half? Well, technically the second lap around the schedule started just before the break, and the Bisons split with Calgary. Decent enough. But now its time for the annual trip to Edmontown to face the Evil Monkeys. The first thing I noticed was that there were just 16 skaters dressed, including a new recruit. Colton Veloso came from the Jacksonville Icemen of the ECHL. Last year he played for the Kootenay Ice in the WHL and scored 25 goals. He seems to be a skilled player and a strong addition. The players not dressed for the Bisons were: 1 Justin Paulic 8 Liam Bilton 12 Nick Zajac 14 Thomas Freeman 18 Garrett Armour 27 Carter Doerksen 28 Brett Stovin 30 Tyler Brown Tonight’s game was not as good as the two games played at the Fleming Arena in the first half. The Monkeys outshot the Herd 50-13. However, in the 3rd period with the score 2-1 the Bisons went on the powerplay and generated some decent chances. A turnover gave the Apes an insurance banana just as the penalty expired. An empty-netter at the 20:00 minute mark of the 3rd (isn’t that when the game is over?) made it 4-1 to enhance the scoreline. Zach Sawchenko got the win, and Byron Spriggs took the loss. Riley Keiser, Jayden Hart (with two, including the ENG), and Trevor Cox scored for the Monkeys. Jonah Wasylak had the Bison goal, on a nice break-out play with assists to Zach Franko and Adam Henry.

Carson Stadnyk scored twice for Sask (his 9th and 10th goals of the season) in the 3rd to put the game away, once short-handed and one empty-netter.

    That would explain why the picks I make and try to post them but it won't let me for some reason never show up. To be honest, if I had a heckuva lot more free time than I do, I'd gladly run things but I while I have free time, it's really not a lot with all the working I do every week. What happens to the contest if no one posts them anymore? Does it cease to be? If so, I wish someone would let me know. 😞

    Oct 20: BISONS SWEPT IN CONTROVERSIAL GAME REGINA COUGARS 6 MANITOBA BISONS 3 Links: LeagueStat: [Summary] : [Report] CW Hockey Tech: [Summary] : [Report] : [Text] Boxscores: [US/CIS] : [CW] : [Coach's View] : [UofM] Stories: [UofM] : [rp @CW] : [UofR] Manitoba Post: [MacAuley's 36-Save Night Helps Regina Topple Manitoba 3-1] Manitoban: [Bisons mauled by Cougars] The Bisons started this one dominating the Kittens. Kamerin Nault and Adam Henry scored 1st period goals to give the Herd a 2-0 lead heading to the intermission. They managed to amass the lead despite being shorthanded 3 times. The Bisons started shorthanded in the 2nd as well, but the 2-0 lead lasted until 15 minutes into the 2nd period. Dasan Sydora got his 2nd start of the season and held the fort. But the 18 shots he faced made a goal inevitable. Both goals were scored by defencemen (Tyler King and Brennan Riddle). The 2nd goal sailed over Sydora's right shoulder from the blueline. Sometimes you see why goalies these days are over 6 feet tall. So with the game tied heading to the 3rd period, the Bisons couldn't get a break. They were given 3 more penalties and were quite outraged over non-calls, such that one of the penalties called on them was a bench minor. In any event Zak Zborosky nothced himself a natural hat-trick to start the 3rd period to turn the game around. The Bisons launched some intense pressure of their own at the end but an empty net goal stopped the comeback. Here's how they lined up: MANITOBA Goal: 34 Sydora (35 Spriggs) Defence: 2 Henry 3 Christensen 23 Dwyer 11 Dyck 24 Lenchyschyn Forwards: 9 Franko 28 Stovin 8 Bolton 29 Wasylak 15 Jameson 12 Zajak 22 Leipsic 10 Skoleski 4 Nault 18 Armour 14 Freeman 26 Leblanc 21 Brooks Scratches: 1 Paulic 5 Paradoski 16 Martin 25 Skrumeda 27 Doerksen 30 Brown I believe that Brooks was injured early on and I only noticed him once.

Kamerin Nault had two goals for the Herd. The Bisons fall to 2-4-0, and the Banjocats jump to 2-3-1. The Bisons are away to MRU next weekend. OUT-OF-TOWN SCOREBOARD U.B.C.

The standings in the CW have tightened up considerably this weekend. Patrick Dea stopped just 19 of 27 shots for the T-irds and Matthew Greenfield stopped 29 of 31 for the win.

The intensity level was half (or less) than it was for the Alberta series a weekend ago. Combined with a series of bad bounces and a hot goaltender and just like that the Banjocats have their first win of the season. Here's how they lined up: MANITOBA Goal: 35 Spriggs (1 Paulic) Defence: 2 Henry 3 Christensen 23 Dwyer 11 Dyck 24 Lenchyschyn 5 Paradoski Forwards: 21 Brooks 15 Jameson 12 Zajak 9 Franko 28 Stovin 8 Bolton 29 Wasylak 10 Skoleski 4 Nault 22 Leipsic 14 Freeman 26 Leblanc Scratches: 16 Martin 18 Armour 25 Skrumeda 27 Doerksen 30 Brown 34 Sydora REGINA Goal: 31 MacAuley (35 Herringer) Defence: 2 Hilsendager 7 King 28 Peel 5 Burns 27 Riddle 22 Eisler Forwards: 23 Miller 13 Frei 32 Zborosky 10 Eskra 8 Anderson 12 Stevely 16 McPhee 9 Chaulk 14 Coughlin 20 Duperreault 17 Kosloski 19 Marr Scratches: 4 Schacher 11 Odelein 18 Adams 21 Kreklewich 24 Hicks 29 Campbell 30 Holtby The 1st period was a quick pace with lots of shots but no goals, Regina holding a 16-13 lead in shots. While still scoreless in the 2nd period, the Bisons started to take control of the game and went to the PP. However, Kitten Zach McPhee drifted what should have been a non-dangerous shot past Byron Spriggs. Arthur Miller completed the story of the 2nd period by making it 2-0 on a nice passing play flowing from an Adam Henry turnover. The 3rd period got off to a rough start. Brandon Paradoski, making his first start in a regular season game, was knocked down in the corner and rather than hold the puck, he passed it into the slot directly to Regina's Corey Kosloski. That made it 3-0, and sent the Bisons into scramble mode. Lots of chances were generated, but only Brett Brooks notched a goal. Bad give-aways were the theme of the night for the Bisons. There were at least a half-dozen glaring ones. In the end, Dawson MacAuley's 36 saves led to Kittens to their first win of 2018-19.

The Bisons had a marginally sub-standard exhibition record, but a split in the Town of Bedrock followed by a split against the Evil Monkeys is the envy of most teams in Usports. All told, the Herd is tied for 3rd place with three other teams. Regina, meanwhile, are not a bad team but the best they could manage thus far is an OTL in games against MRU and Lethbridge (the teams who were 6th and 7th last year). Being swept at home by the Hørny Ønes is not part of the recipe for success. In the recent past, the Bisons have had the Cougars' number. The Bisons beat the Banjocats 5-2 in a September exhibition game, made to look close when the 'Cats scored a late goal. In 2017-18, the Bisons were 4-0-0, with Regina getting one point for an OTL. Over the past 4 years, the Bisons are 14-1-1 (Regina is 2-13-1) in head-to-head games. Regina's top four scorers include two veteran defencemen: Tyler King (2-2-4) and Landon Peel (1-2-3). The other two are rookie forwards, Arthur Miller (1-2-3 in 3 games) is hoping to write a story called “Death of a Playoff Drought”, and Connor Chaulk (1-2-3) has done well. Last year's rookie-of-the-year, Zak Zborosky, missed the opening weekend and has one assist in two games. Goaltenders Dawson MacAuley (4th year) and Michael Herringer (2nd year) have split the duties thus far. They have both had their moments. Herringer wound up 4-12-0, 5.11 GAA, .863 S% last year. This year he's 0-2-0, 5.01 GAA, .833 S%. At this early stage, four points gets a guy tied for 7th in conference scoring, and the Bisons have four forwards in that group. Brett Stovin (4-0-4) used to get mostly assists, veterans Brett Brook and Nick Zajac are both 1-3-4, and newcomer Keaton Jameson is 0-4-0. Another newcomer, Devon Skoleski, is off to a 3-0-3 start. Defenceman Lucas Skrumeda was off to a great start and also had somepoints (1-2-3 in 3 games) before being injured on a hit from behind last Friday. When all is said and done, Regina will steal some points from various teams this season. The Bisons will hope it starts next week. ELSEWHERE IN THE CW U.B.C.

The Dinos knocked off the T-irds in last year's playoffs. I suspect that Bedrock U is on their way to a top four finish. However, they need to win series like this one to get there. The Friday game starts at 11:00 a.m. MDT, as part of a school promotion. LETHBRIDGE PRONGHORNS (2-2-0, 4-5-1, OHT35 #20) SASKATCHEWAN HUSKIES (3-1-0, 7-1-0, OHT35 #1) Links: UofL: [Pronghorns hit the road to face #2 Huskies] UofS: [Huskie Happenings: Oct. 16-21] UofS: [PREVIEW: No. 2 Huskies look to stay hot against 'Horns] The Banjomutts' position in this series is akin to the Bisons' position in the Regina series. Having played Alberta and Calgary, they are off to a 3-1-0 start. But points lost here could damage them down the road in the race for a top-two finish needed for a bye to the semi-finals.

In pre-season they split with UBC (albeit with an OTL) then split a 3-way round-robin against Calgary and MRU. In the regular season they split with Sask and Manitoba. The Bluegars, in turn, were swept by UBC and swept Regina. In this home-and-home series, it could be said that the Bluegars should feel the pressure to not just steal a point, but to get a split like everybody else.

    Oct 12: COMEBACK VICTORY FOR THE BISONS ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS 2 MANITOBA BISONS 3 Links: LeagueStat: [Summary] : [Report] CW Hockey Tech: [Summary] : [Report] : [Text] Boxscores: [US/CIS] : [CW] : [Coach's View] : [UofM] Stories: [UofM (with video)] : [rp @CW] : [rp @UofA] Series Preview: [UofM] After the conference bye week and the end of non-conference play, the teams of the CW got down to some hotly contested games Friday night. Included was a dandy game at the Wayne Fleming Arena where a boisterous crowd, which included the Engineering Symonized Marching Band, cheered the Bisons on to a win over the Evil Monkeys. The Herd is now 2-1-0 and tied for 2nd place, whilst the Primates are 1-2-0 and tied for 5th. Here's how they lined up: MANITOBA Goal: 35 Spriggs (34 Sydora) Defence: 2 Henry 3 Christensen 25 Skrumeda 24 Lenchyschyn 11 Dyck 23 Dwyer Forwards: 21 Brooks 15 Jameson 12 Zajak 9 Franko 28 Stovin 8 Bolton 4 Nault 10 Skoleski 26 Leblanc 29 Wasylak 16 Martin 14 Freeman Scratches: 1 Paulic 5 Paradoski 18 Armour 22 Leipsic 27 Doerksen 30 Brown ALBERTA Goal: 35 Sawchenko (31 Cameron) Defence: 6 Craig 4 Kirichenko 5 Fram 22 Carroll 7 Lange 8 Rehill Forwards: 36 Cox 12 Philp 27 Miske 37 Nickles 14 Kieser 11 Cooper 17 Hart 23 Clarkson 24 Tomchuk 16 Pawlenchuk 13 Owre 26 Sanford Scratches: 1 Burke 9 Legault 18 Baillie 19 Magee 21 Kimmett 40 Lineker 52 Charif For the first time in a while, Alberta iced a full roster. Also, the Bisons got back a lot of injured players. The Monkeys amassed a 2-0 lead in the 1st period with a pair of PP goals by Cole Sanford. The preponderance of penalties favoured Alberta. The Bisons turned it around in the 2nd period. Devon Skoleski (with his 3rd) scored on the PP and Brett Stovin (with his 4th) tied it up, as the Bisons outshot Alberta 12-10 in the period. Midway through the 3rd period, Nick Zajac scored his 1st of the season and suddenly it looked like the Bisons could do it. The Monkeys threw a lot of bananas at Spriggs, but he was quite up to the task. The shots were 38-28 favouring Alberta. The three stars were Spriggs, Zajac, and Sanford. OUT-OF-TOWN SCOREBOARD CALGARY DINOSAURS 4 SASKATCHEWAN HUSKIES 5 (in a shoot-out) Links: LeagueStat: [Summary] : [CWHT Summary] Boxscores: [US/CIS] : [CW] Stories: [UofS] : [rp @CW] : [rp @UofC] This was a tight battle to christen the new Merlis Belsher Place in Saskatown. So a shootout seems appropriate. I saw the ending on CanadaWest.tv after getting home from the Bison game. Lots of crazy penalties and aggressiveness. Saturday's rematch should be quite the tussle. Taran Kozun got the win (29 saves) and Jordan Papirny took the loss (46 saves). There were eight different goal-scorers. LETHBRIDGE PRONGHORNS 3 REGINA COUGARS 2 Links: LeagueStat: [Summary] : [CWHT Summary] Boxscores: [US/CIS] : [CW] Stories: [UofR] : [rp @CW] : [rp @UofL] The Banjocats scored with 93 seconds left to tie the game and there was much joy amongst the Feline Hillbillies. But the H0rny Ones Scored again with just 4 seconds left to claim the win. Lethbridge was only able to dress 16 skaters and two goaltenders. Garret Hughson made 31 saves to claim the win, and Dawson MacAuley had 28 saves in the loss. Lethbridge vaults out of the basement with the win, at 1-2-0, and Regina is 0-2-1.

In this matchup between the Bisons and Evil Monkeys, the teams (on the surface) have had similar runs the last two weeks. Both started the regular season with a split against a team with a pre-season victory over their opponent (Calgary split with Manitoba and beat Alberta in pre-season, and Sask did the same in reverse). Both were 0-1-1 in the USA last weekend (albeit the Monkeys had a tie, not an OTL). One issue to observe is both sides' line-ups. Last weekend the Bisons were without Zach Franko and Kamerin Nault from their first line, and the Monkeys were without their whole top line. With so many new players, an dmost coming from Junior A, the Bisons lack depth in comparison to the Monkeys. In disappointing news, Findlay's “Tuesday Morning Skate” and podcast are now at the Usports site, instead of CUSN. (Why couldn't it be at both?) Since the Usports site is trash, it might be hard to get it. We'll see. ELSEWHERE IN THE CW CALGARY DINOS (1-1-0, 6-2-1, OHT35 #7) SASKATCHEWAN HUSKIES (1-1-0, 5-1-0, OHT35 #1) Links: UofC: [Team Site] UofS: [PREVIEW: Huskies set for home openers in Merlis Belsher Place] : [Game Notes (pdf) This will be an interesting match-up between two sides who took last weekend off. Both were impressive on the Friday night of the opening weekend before crashing to Earth on Saturday. Sask had the best pre-season in all of the CIS (USports). Is Calgary a true contender, as pundits speculate? Or are they better viewed in a group with Manitoba, UBC, and MRU? LETHBRIDGE PRONGHORNS (0-2-0, 2-5-1, OHT35 #32) REGINA COUGARS (0-1-1, 2-3-1, OHT35 #24) Links: UofL: [Pronghorns return to Canada West action in Regina] UofR: [Three former Cougars to play professionally in ECHL this season] UofR: [Johnson named to 2018 U SPORTS All-Star Series coaching staff] UofR: [Cougars to host Lethbridge for home opener] This is a golden opportunity to get a win! IMO, Regina has recruited fairly well the last two years and are not terrible. They're just not as good as the top 6 teams in the CW. Lethbridge had some off-season turmoil but it seems like they are not far off of last year's pace. MOUNT ROYAL COUGARS (2-0-0, 3-4-0, OHT35 #14) U.B.C. THUNDERBIRDS (2-0-0, 7-1-0, OHT35 #10) Links: MRU: [Team Site] UBC: [T-Birds host Cougars for 2018-19 home opener] This is the battle for first place! However, unless the schedule changes to give these teams lots more games against Regina and Lethbridge, I don't see this holding. Realistically, these two are aiming to solidify a playoff berth and then shoot for home ice advantage in the quarter-finals.
