Four Teams, Four Leagues, Face-off on Friday

Post by Hollywood2 » Fri Sep 04, 2015 11:20 pm

OUT OF TOWN SCOREBOARD

September 4, 2015

Teams from the German Oberliga, the OUA, the CWUAA, and the ACAC faced off in inter-league pre-season hockey on Friday night in a pair of unique match-ups.

The Peiting team plays in the Oberliga, which is Germany's 3rd tier league. That league is divided into regional divisions and is semi-pro. They placed 6th of 12 in their division last year. CIS tams usually face 2nd tier German teams, like the Pinguins, Cannibals, and Star-Bulls. So I guess Cartoon U will be happy with the win but not yet planning a parade.

The H0rny Ones picked up a surprisingly close win over an ACAC foe. All I have to go by is a few Tweets. Oddly, Lethbridge will not face any other CW teams in the pre-season. They play 6 games (5 more) against ACAC teams and then a 2 game roadtrip against NCAA teams. In one bit of great news, goaltender Dylan Tait suited up for Lethbridge. He missed most of last season with a cancer scare. So good luck to him.

The good news for Portage College is that they doubled their offensive output from Friday night. And they are young men and still have their health.

This game was 1-1 after 1 and 6-1 after 2. The Twitter feed lists the scorers. No summaries or stories have been posted for either game.

The H0rny Ones will tangle with Red Deer College, another ACAC team, in a double-header next weekend. Last season Portage was 1-29-0-2 whilst Red Deer was 15-13-1-3. (The ACAC still has tied games.)

The Bisons do not play any games next weekend either. They will start with a game against Regina in Ochapowace on September 18th.

On Labour Day Cartoon U went to 2-0-0 on their European tour. Ritten is one of Italy's leading teams. This was the toughest team on their tour. However, when the Bisons toured Europe this was their weakest opponent. One Ritten player is former Winkler Flyer Brendan Cook. Their story on him is linked here.

Sept 10: First All-CIS Exhibition Game

Post by Hollywood2 » Fri Sep 11, 2015 4:52 am

As we inch towards the Bisons' pre-season opener on September 18th, the news and results are accumulating. We also had cross-town derbies in Montreal and Vancouver.

SIMON FRASER CLAN 0
U.B.C. THUNDERBIRDS 6


Links:
:. [UBC Recruit Story] : [UBC Game Story]
:. [SFU Preview]
:. [LeagueStat Summary] : [CW Boxscore]


UBC not only started the season, they also officially announced their recruiting class.

The new recruits consist of 5 defencemen and 3 forwards, all having played some time in the WHL:

JOEL HAMILTON - 5'10 left wing/centre - Vancouver/Kamloops (WHL)
AUSTIN VETTERL - 5'11 right wing - Kootenay(WHL)
CHASE CLAYTON - 5'11 centre - Saskatoon(WHL)/Brooks (AJHL)
KYLE BECKER - 6'4 defenceman - Medicine Hat(WHL)
DEVAN FAFARD - 6'0 defenceman - Red Deer/Lethbridge(WHL)
JOSH CONNOLLY - 5'11 defenceman - Kamloops/Prince George(WHL)
RAYMOND GREWAL - 6'2 defenceman - Prince George (BCHL)/Prince Albert (WHL)
RILEY GUENTHER - 6'0 defenceman - Vernon (BCHL)

The departures include:
Cole Wilson - led team in goals, 2nd in points
Manraj Hayer - 5th in points
Nate Fleming - 6th in points
Joe Antilla - 7th in points
Greg Fraser - 8th in points
Adam Rossignol - 9th in points
Ben Schmidt - 12th in points
Brad Hoban - 14th in points
Linden Saip - 15th in points
Brendon Wall - 17th in points
Jason Yee - 18th in points
Robert Lindores - 22nd in points
Justin Georgeson - 23rd in points

The recruiting class is pretty good. However they lose 6 of their top 10 scorers and 5 of their top 6 defencemen. And they have a new coach.

So how did they look on the ice? Well, they shut the door on The Clown. But that is to be expected against BCIHL opposition. It was basically the 2nd period that put ths one away. UBC outshot The Clown 17-4 and scored 5 goals. Other than that the shots were just 17-13 for the Tweety-Birds.

CONCORDIA STINGERS 0
MCGILL REDMEN 4

:. [McGill Game Story]
:. [LeagueStat Summary]


McGill always play a wide-open style, and did so again to start the season. The amassed 40 shots. What's up with Concordia? They look like the sub-standard team they have been for years now after having been the dominant team in Quebec. From 1950 to 1984 Concordia and its predecessor schools (Loyola and Sir George Williams) won 33 of 35 titles in the old OSLC and the original QUAA. McGill went from 1946 to 2008 without a title!

Sept 11: Action Confined to Alberta

Post by Hollywood2 » Sat Sep 12, 2015 10:08 am

Only two exhibition games involving CIS teams were played on Friday night, and both were held in Saudi Alberta. Still no official roster announcements from the Bisons. This is the last of the light weekends in CIS hockey. Next weekend there is a massive schedule as everybody hits the ice.

Neither game in Friday was sent through to LeagueStat so we have no access to stats or rosters.

However, Bedrock U gave us a few team stories to kick things off. The fact they beat MRU, a nemesis opponent from last year, must be a matter of satisfaction.

Both sides were slated to lose several key players from last year. The biggest question mark is Calgary's goaltending. The Lazaruk-DeSerres tandem both graduated after last season. Either one of them would have been a first-rate starter, so the Dinos went from feast to famine.

Sept 12: A Night of Overtime

This one was played in Kamloops, B.C., home of Thompson Rivers University. I am not sure why the teams came here, perhaps to make it easier for the Monkeys to travel. Wouldn't it be nice if TRU revived their BCIHL hockey program? Wouldn't it be nice if UBC uploaded the game stats through LeagueStat?

It is great when teams put their stats through LeagueStat. Why don't they all do it? So far it is just UBC and McGill to take action. The win levels the Pats' record at 2-2-0 and was their first game back in North America after their trip to France. McGill is now 1-0-1. McGill had a 2-0 lead after one, but UQTR tied it up early in the 2nd. Then that was it for scoring until OT.

Sunday is not a heavy day for regular season games, nor is it for exhibition games. Just two games on the docket, both afternoon affairs. In any event, next week the nation-wide start of the pre-season really begins with some gusto.

This was also played in Kamloops and once again the only news is from Twitter. The Monkeys got goals from Crooks and Hickmott, whilst Daigle and Demharter shared the shutout. The win gives the Monkeys a 3-0-0 record, and UBC is now 1-1-1.

Eight Recruits Confirmed

Post by Hollywood2 » Tue Sep 15, 2015 3:32 pm

Image

On September 14th the Bisons updated their roster page and on September 15th officially announced eight recruits. The roster page still needs updates. It has the names of 14 returning players. So some names would be yet to be confirmed. Here's what we have:

Goaltenders

Confirmed to return:
1 Byron Spriggs

Confirmed recruits:
* Justin Paulic (Moose Jaw/Victoria WHL)
* Dasan Sydora (Winkler MJHL)

Departed:
34 Deven Dubyk

Defencemen

Confirmed to return:
2 Channing Bresciani
5 Lee Christensen
6 Luke Paulsen
9 Rene Hunter
12 Brock Sutherland

Confirmed recruit:
* Adam Henry (Saskatoon/Portland WHL)

Once-rumoured recruit:
* Justin Hamonic (in San Antonio's AHL camp)

Eligible to return:
3 Josh Elmes
28 Kyle Rous

Departed:
22 Darren Bestland

Forwards

Confirmed to return:
16 Jesse Paradis
17 Warren Callis
18 Dylan Kelly
23 Joel Schreyer
24 Justin Augert
25 Shaquille Merasty
27 Jordan DePape
29 Dustin Bruyere

Confirmed recruits:
* Brett Brooks (Blues MJHL/Moose Jaw WHL)
* Liam Bilton (Blues MJHL)
* Brett Stovin (Saskatoon WHL/Missouri ECHL)
* Jordyn Boyd (Portage MJHL/Kootenay and Everett WHL)
* Jonah Wasylak (Steinbach MJHL)

Once-rumoured recruit:
* Hudson Friesen (still listed at Alaska-Anchorage)

Eligible to return:
10 Brett Dudar
15 Chad Robinson
- Colin Mospanchuk

Departed:
8 Jory Coates
20 Aaron Lewadniuk
21 Taylor Dickin

The Bisons usually add a few names at a time to their roster page once the player gets all his paperwork in and picture taken, etc. Then they add the new players once they have made the team. They sometimes add the players who are trying out for the team. I would expect a minimum line-up of 3 goaltenders, 8 defencemen, and 14 forwards.

With 14 returning vets already listed, and 8 recruits confirmed, that would leave at least 3 spots open. If those are being filled by returnees then the line-up looks pretty good. If Hamonic returns from pro then the defence would be amongst the best in the whole CIS.

Roster Updates

Image

As the day has worn on, the Bison [Roster Page] has kept getting updated. It started the day with 14 vets listed. As I checked in from time to time some of the 8 recruits announced yesterday were added one at a time, albeit without the background columns completed.

Anyhow, three new names popped up.

Sean Christensen - D - Saint Boniface (MMJHL)

- There are usually MMJHLers trying out, so no big surprise there. The now departed Jory Coates was one who made it, and there have been 3rd string goaltenders to play a season. I would be surprised if there not a handful of such players at camp as walk-ons.

Links:
[Elite Prospects]
[MMJHL Player Profile]


Christian Stockl - RW - Red Deer (WHL)/Virden (MJHL)

- Stockl is a former Red Deer Rebel who did not play last year. He was a highly rated Midget AAA player who scored 36 goals in 38 games then went straight to the Dub. If he could find that scoring touch again he would be the kind of player the team needs.

Links:
[Elite Prospects]
[Hockey DB]


Zach Waldvogel - C - Portage (MJHL)

- The other names were "out of the blue" but this one was beyond that. Waldvogel was a key part of the Portage Terriers RBC championship team. He was previously announced as a Guelph recruit. Yet here he is, just a short drive away from home. He is 6'2" and 201 lbs. He had scoring touch in Junior A but would likely be a 3rd line shut-down centre in the CW.

- In CIS news, bids were received for nationals in 2017 and 2018 for basketball, rugby, and hockey. The men's hockey bids came from New Brunswick and Toronto. Neither Manitoba nor Winnipeg nor Brandon submitted any bids.

Sept 18: Bisons Start with a Loss

Post by Hollywood2 » Fri Sep 18, 2015 11:09 pm

MANITOBA BISONS 0

Friday night was the start of the full scale pre-season in the CIS. Prior to this there were scattered games. But this has more of a regualr season feel, with most teams in action sometime this weekend. So the post-game format of my posts can go to a more common format.

In a scheduling note, Lethbridge's games have been shifted back a day, i.e. they now play Saturday and Sunday. MRU is doing the same thing. Oddly UBC and Alberta have the weekend off after having played one another last weekend.

This was not a great result for the Bisons. All I have to go by is a Twitter feed from Regina. So I do not know who dressed, who sat, who played goal, and no stats whatsoever. It was 0-0 after the 1st and a late goal made it 2-0 after the 2nd. So did a hot goalie steal one for Regina? Did the Bisons fail to generate any offence?

This was the first game for both teams. The game was the first in a tournament series hosted by Regina. Calgary and Saskatchewan are also entered. Oddly, this game was played in Ochapowace.

Nothing but the score available here. On the face of it, a 3-1 loss to Calgary should be a big improvement over a 4-0 loss to Regina. But without seeing the rosters or stats it is hard to really tell. In any event, 1 goal in 2 games is not a good omen. The Bisons fall to 0-2-0. Without a report of their Friday game, Bedrock U is now 3-1-0. The Bisons are off to Thunder Bay next weekend to face Lakehead in a double-header.

Sept 20: Sunday Scores and Weekend Update

Post by Hollywood2 » Mon Sep 21, 2015 4:22 pm

The Bisons spent Sunday escaping the land of barefoot hillbillies. But at least Regina updated their tournament scores for the weekend, and there were a few other games played on a light schedule.

Friday, September 18, 2015

CALGARY DINOSAURS 2

After this game, Bedrock U was 2-2-0 and this was Sask's first game.

This one gave Sask an unbeaten weekend and a 2-0-0 start. That would not normally mean much. But after the season they had last year they likely want whatever positive reinforcement they can find. Regina levelled their record at 1-1-0.

Sunday, September 20, 2015

N.A.I.T. OOKS 8
MOUNT ROYAL COUGARS 4

The fact that MRU gave up 8 goals must be concerning to them. Of course, they may have been auditioning two goaltenders fighting it out for the #3 job. This is the problem when we don't get rosters or stats. Still, MRU has to be concerned by the GAA. MRU is now 1-2-0 in the pre-season.

The Clippers are a very weak team every year and this year looks like the same old things. The win makes the Banjocats 2-1-0 so far.

So the first time the H0rny Ones face a good ACAC team they lose. They are now 5-1-0 in the pre-season and have played an all-ACAC schedule.

On the positive side, the Bisons scored 3 goals. But a loss is a loss. There are no stats available. All I know is Shaq Merasty scored twice and Brett Stovin once. And Justin Paulic played the last half of the game in goal. The rematch goes Saturday at 6:00 CDT.
