    2018-19 Manitoba Bisons/USports Thread

    Sept 15: BISONS LOSE, SPLIT WEEKEND REGINA TOURNAMENT MANITOBA BISONS 1 SASKATCHEWAN HUSKIES 4 Links: Manitoba: [S&R] : [Twitter] Sask: [S&R] : [Twitter*] Ottawa Citizen: [Big-time departures] S.A.I.T. TROJANS 3 REGINA COUGARS 7 Links: SAIT: [S&R] : [Twitter*] Regina: [S&R] : [Twitter*] Time to bring back the asterisk for links that are missing as I post but may show up later when you read. There were no game stories nor boxscores/summaries posted for either game. Only the Manitoba Twitter had a tweet. In any event, I guess if medals were being awarded, the Mutts claimed gold, the Bisons settled for silver, and the Kittens got a bronze. The Condoms got nothing but experience. Without any other teams posting even a tweet, here's a photo of everything I could obtain: So returning Zach Franko and rookie Devon Skoleski paced the scoring for the Bisons this weekend. Rookies also did very well on the scoring in the UK tour as well. Next weekend, the Bisons have just the one game, that being a Saturday matinee against Regina. The week will start with York's sad commemorative tour of Saskatchewan. Oddly, the above-linked story from the Ottawa Citizen is their story on Sask's recruiting. I have no idea why such a story would be printed there. BRICK INVITATIONAL MOUNT ROYAL COUGARS 3 ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS 7 Links: MRU: [S&R] : [Twitter] Alberta: [Linescore] : [Twitter] Boxscore: [CW] Good to see that the Apes uploaded boxscores to the CW site, joining UBC. The win gives the Evil Monkeys 2nd place in the 3-team tournament. Here's the last of a string of tweets from the evening: With a depleted line up the boys get it done tonight. Final score 7-3. @bmagee18 with a heck of a night gets the star for the Bears and Watson for the Cougars. Off to Athabasca next weekend for games against @UofA_AugVikings & @NAITMensHockey Alberta's site has yet to add their Athabasca exhibition games to their posted schedule. MRU acknowledges that they face the Dinos, and not Minnesota State, on Wednesday. However, their official schedule has yet to make the correction. OUT-OF-TOWN SCOREBOARD N.A.I.T. OOKS 1 U.B.C.

    Sept 14: HERD PICKS UP ROAD WIN REGINA TOURNAMENT MANITOBA BISONS 2 S.A.I.T. TROJANS 1 Links: Manitoba: [S&R] : [Twitter] SAIT: [S&R] : [Twitter] SASKATCHEWAN HUSKIES 4 REGINA COUGARS 0 Links: Sask: [S&R] : [Twitter] Regina: [S&R] : [Twitter] This was the opening night of the Regina Tournament. There isn't much news about these game out there. The SAIT Twitter had a blurb and all teams' S&R pages have a score without a link, at least as I post. So both Bison wins so far have been 2-1 games, and they are now 2-3-0 in the pre-season. It would be nice if someone in Regina tweeted out a picture of the lineup cards. On Saturday, it will be S.A.I.T. v Regina at 1:00 CDT and Manitoba v Saskatchewan at 4:30 CDT. BRICK INVITATIONAL CALGARY DINOSAURS 6 MOUNT ROYAL COUGARS 4 Links: Calgary: [S&R] : [Twitter] MRU: [S&R] : [Twitter] CALGARY DINOSAURS 1 ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS 0 Links: Calgary: [S&R] : [Twitter] Alberta: [S&R] : [Twitter] The first game was played Thursday in Cowtown and the second was Friday in Edmontown. The two wins give Bedrock U the tournament title, and a 4-0-0 record in pre-season. It's Yabba Dabba Doo time. The Evil Monkeys are now on a two game losing streak! MRU and Alberta will fight it out for second place on Saturday. Here's the Dino tweet: OUT-OF-TOWN SCOREBOARD N.A.I.T. OOKS 2 U.B.C.

    Preview: SEPT 13-16: BISONS AT REGINA TOURNAMENT MANITOBA BISONS (1-3-0) S.A.I.T. TROJANS (0-0-0) SASKATCHEWAN HUSKIES (0-0-0) REGINA COUGARS (0-0-0) This is the first weekend of a national exhibition hockey weekend across USports. The Herd suffers the indignity of a trip to Banjoland, where they will face the SAIT Condoms and the Banjo Mutts from Saskatown. Here's the schedule: Sep 14 Manitoba v S.A.I.T. (ACAC) - 5:00 CST/6:00 CDT Sep 14 Saskatchewan at Regina - 8:00 CST/9:00 CDT Sep 15 S.A.I.T. (ACAC) at Regina - 12:00 CST Sep 15 Manitoba v Saskatchewan - 3:30 CST/4:30 CDT The Bison roster page is still in 2017-18. In fact, Calgary and Regina are the only teams in the league with a 2018-19 roster page. That may change by the end of Friday. No teams have posted a weekend preview as I post. Sask has a story posted from the "WHL Powers the CW" series, as all the teams are doing one by one. Their WHL recruits are announced, but their non-WHL recruits are not. Those come from Elite Prospects, for now. Here's the list: - Gordie Ballhorn (D) - Kelowna Rockets (WHL) - Travis Child (G) - Edmonton Oil Kings (WHL) - Shane Collins (D) - Prince George Cougars (WHL) / London Knights (OHL) - Evan Fiala (D) - Saskatoon Blades (WHL) - Donovan Neuls (F) - Seattle Thunderbirds (WHL) - Kendall Fransoo (D) - Wilkie Outlaws (SWHL) - Dakota Boutin (F) - Penticton Vees (BCJHL) There is no news from the Bisons, except a tweet from Victor Findlay stating that leading scorer Michael St. Croix will not be returning.

    Sept 7: NO UPSETS ON OPENING NIGHT OUT-OF-TOWN SCOREBOARD The Bisons have the weekend off, which is not surprising following their trip to the British Isles. None of the teams out east will start until next week. This week's best source for scores and updates will be Twitter. Also, none of the teams has a 2018-19 roster page uploaded. Here's what happened on Friday, September 7, 2018: ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS 5 U.B.C. THUNDERBIRDS 2 Links: Alberta: [Twitter] : [Schedule & Results] UBC: [Twitter] : [Schedule & Results] Twitter was about the only source for updates, as is often the case in the pre-season. It sounds like the Evil Monkeys handled the T-irds quite easily. This series is being played in Penticton, as part of the "Young Stars Classic" with Vancouver Canucks and Winnipeg Jets rookies. There are no games scheduled between NHL and CW teams. MACEWAN GRIFFINS 2 CALGARY DINOSAURS 6 Links: Calgary: [Twitter] : [Schedule & Results] Calgary: [Dinos add five WHL alums looking to continue surge] MacEwan: [Series Preview] : [Schedule & Results] ACAC: [Schedule & Results] According to the string of tweets, this was scoreless until late in the 2nd when the Dinos took a 2-1 lead. In the process, they enjoyed a 26-12 edge in shots on goal. Presumably that 3rd period must have been quite dominating as Bedrock U outscored the Griffins 4-1 in the period. This one was held in the Town of Bedrock, and Saturday's rematch will be in Edmontown. The Dinos also have a recruiting announcement, available in the links. They have now confirmed five recruits from the WHL. They have two defencemen coming, and three forwards. James Shearer (D) - Brandon Wheat Kings (WHL) Jordan Henderson (D) - Medicine Hat Tigers (WHL) Graham Black (F) - Swift Current Broncos (WHL) Regan Nagy (F) - Prince Albert Raiders (WHL) Cal Babych (F) - Everett Silvertips (WHL) RED DEER COLLEGE KINGS 2 LETHBRIDGE PRONGHORNS 4 Links: Lethbridge: [Twitter] : [Schedule & Results] Red Deer: [Schedule & Results] Not much can be gathered on this one. Lethbridge has been through some turmoil so any sort of a win must be a great relief. The Horny Ones held period leads of 2-1 and 3-2. NEXT UP Sep 08 Alberta v U.B.C.

    Sept 6: MRU BOLSTERS ROSTER I have two links today, one about MRU's recruiting class and the other with more pre-season games for the BCIHL, plus some Twitter feeds pertaining to the weekend games. The Bluegars landed quite a crop of WHL recruits, after being almost shut-out a year ago. The players are: - Colton Bobyk (D) - Red Deer Rebels - Tyson Helgesen (D) - Spokane Chiefs - Keegan Iverson (F) - Portland Winterhawks - Kade Jensen (D) - Victoria Royals - Colton Kroeker (F) - Kootenay Ice Three major junior defencemen in one season is quite a haul. The BCIHL schedule has added two games, neither of which involves a CW team: Sep 21 Selkirk College at Victoria Sep 22 Selkirk College at Vancouver Island The first puck drop in North America takes place this weekend, with three series out west involving four CW teams and two ACAC teams. I have linked to the team Twitters because that's probably going to be the best place to find results. Here's the schedule: Sep 07 Alberta v U.B.C. (in Penticton) Sep 07 MacEwan (ACAC) at Calgary Sep 07 Red Deer (ACAC) at Lethbridge Sep 08 Alberta v U.B.C.

    Sept 5: LIMITED ROSTER NEWS The roster pages throughout the league are stuck on 2017-18. By now we should have learned of any recruits of significance. Usually, news travels when a player has left to sign a pro contract. However, players who have departed for other reasons are not known until we see roster pages. The Bison site has a WHL recruiting story. They have recruited goaltender Tyler Brown from the WHL, but he is in rehab and won't start the season. The other links are for team roster pages which are sure to be updated now that players should have reported to classes. Links: ► [WHL powers CW: Sirant eyes Manitoban talent to take Bisons to next level] ► [Alberta Roster] ► [Calgary Roster] ► [Lethbridge Roster] ► [Manitoba Roster] ► [Mount Royal Roster] ► [Regina Roster] ► [Saskatchewan Roster] ► [UBC Roster] In scheduling news: - The BCIHL has added an exhibition game component to the schedule, which includes just 6 games.

Sep 28 Simon Fraser at Anchorage (NCAA) Sep 28 Simon Fraser at Fairbanks (NCAA) (?) - That oddity on the MRU Schedule which has them going to the States on two separate weekends would seem to be (as suspected) in error. Minnesota State says their game with MRU is on Oct 6th. - Brock has their schedule in 2018-19 at long last, but it is missing the pre-season. That leaves Concordia and Nipissing battling for Laggard-of-the-Year. Links: ► [BCIHL Schedule] ► [Minnesota State Schedule] ► [Brock Schedule]

    Aug 30: SOME LATE NEWS AS WE HEAD INTO LABOUR DAY Is this a recruiting announcement? Or nothing more than a back-to-school notice?

    Aug 28: SCHEDULE UPDATES No new schedules from CW, or even USports. But there are games from the ACAC and BCIHL which affect the CW. http://www.acac.ab.ca/sports/mice/2018-19/schedule-all There are quite a few new additions to the ACAC schedule.

    Aug 21: BISONS LOSE OPENER MANITOBA BISONS 3 MANCHESTER STORM 4 Links: Manchester: [Preview] : [Twitter] I can't find a summary, or a game story even. I did find one more preview story and the Twitter was updated. The Bisons were down 2-0 and 3-1 but rallied in the 3rd to tie the game. A late goal won it for the Storm. There were quite a few tussles as well. Newcomer Keaton Jameson was Bison Man-of-the-Match and will be wearing #15. Next up: Aug 23 Manitoba at Fife Flyers OTHER NEWS The Banjo Cats had their official announcement of three WHL recruits: Conner Chaulk - Swift Current/Calgary - centre James Hilsendager - Kelowna - defence Brennan Riddle - LethbridgeVancouver - defence In a season where major junior recruits seem to be down, this is a decent haul for the Kittens.

There is a live video link, which costs £10. I have not yet found live stats or audio. The Bisons are touring with just 5 veterans and 12 rookies. Thus far I have only heard about 8 recruits, which means there are four more. Also, they have fund-raised half the cost. Which may explain why some vets are waiting for September to play hockey. The veterans mentioned are Kamerin Nault, Brett Stovin, and Byron Spriggs.

    Aug 19: TWO DAYS UNTIL PUCK DROP On Tuesday the Bisons will start their exhibition schedule against the Manchester Storm. When I think of Manchester I think of the greatest continuous stretch of bands that one city has ever produced. Their hockey history is not quite so accomplished, so far anyhow. Although Tuesday's game will be Manchester's first of the season, there were 8 games this weekend, and 4 games last weekend. All of those games featured an EIHL team facing a team from elsewhere in Europe, execpt for a pair of games between Nottingham and Cardiff. The stories being generated are about ticket sales and meeting the players. Hopefully there will be more pre-game news and access to stats. Last year all of the EIHL teams had loads pf pictures but nothing on stats/rosters/summaries. Here's the links and a couple of videos.
