This weekend marks the mid-point of the CW schedule. At 5-7-0 the Bisons have some degree of urgency in this series. The Banjomutts are sitting at the top of the table tied with the Monkeys at 18 points. The Bisons are 6th with 10. A 4-point weekend would dramatically alter things.

Last year Sask won the conference, and swept the Bisons along the way. However, in the previous 3 seasons the Bisons held a 7-5 edge, with each side claiming one OTL.

There are many players to watch. Sask has 5 of the top 20 scorers. Michael Sofillas and Kohl Bauml each have 13 points, Logan McVeigh has 12 points, and Jesse Forsberg and Josh Roach have 11-a-piece. The Bisons have 3 at that level, Shaq Merasty (4-8-12), Justin Augert (8-3-11), and the captain Jordan DePape (6-5-11 in only 8 games).

Despite all their credentials, the Mutts would be nothing more than your typical pack of toilet water drinkers and butt sniffers without good goaltending. Jordon Cooke leads the league and has played all but about 10 minutes so far. He is 8-3-1, 1.97 GAA, and .926 S%.

In the Bison goal, Byron Spriggs is now 4-3-0, 3.02 GAA, and .907 S%. Decent numbers in this year's CW.

Both games can be seen on canadawest.tv. Both games can be heard free at UMFM.com, and Friday's game can be heard on 101.5 FM.

After a surprise sweep last weekend the 'Horns are in a pretty good place right now. 13 points is good for 5th place, and they are within 2 points of 3rd. Meanwhile, the Evil Monkeys are rounding into form. Their 50 goals in 12 games is by far the best in the CW. And the top 4 scorers in the league are all banana-eating båstårds. Big test for the Hørny Ones. They made need some extra Viagra.

Those crazy Banjocats are on a roll! Last week the Kittens were purring after they devoured the Tweety Birds. Twice! Can they keep it going? Bedrock U have somewhat exceeded expectations this year, sitting in 3rd. But with local teams playing for the Vanier Cup on Saturday and the Grey Cup on Sunday, there may not be a lot of fretting about this series.

These two teams had sobering experiences last weekend. The Bluegars were swept by Lethbridge and UBC was swept by Regina. Both sides must have had a tense week of preparation. Still, MRU is in 4th and could easily move up a notch or two. UBC could be left with little more than a wing and a prayer if they lose both of these home games.

On Overtime Night in the CW (all 4 games went past 60), the Bisons suffered another loss. More significantly, captain and leading scorer Jordan DePape went MIA at some point. Hopefully he is not on his 3rd injury stint of the season.

I will start with the teams' alignment:

MANITOBA

Goal
35 Spriggs (1 Paulic)

Defence
2 Henry - 20 Johnston
3 S Christensen - 9 Hunter
4 Bresciani - 5 L Christensen

Forwards
12 Zajac - 28 Stovin - 27 DePape
25 Merasty - 13 Laurencelle - 24 Augert
10 Dudar - 26 Lisoway - 22 B Bowles
19 Friesen - 23 Schreyer -17 Callis

Scratches
6 Heinrich (D) - 8 Bilton (F) - 14 Nault (F)
15 S Bowles (F) - 16 Paradis (F) - 21 Brooks (F)
29 Wasylak (F) - 34 Sydora (G)

SASKATCHEWAN

Goal
30 Wapple (32 Cooke)

Defence
4 Harmsworth - 2 McFaull
3 Cox - 6 Fransoo
5 Forsberg - 8 Lishchynsky

Forwards
15 Sofillas - 14 McVeigh - 7 Roach
22 Johnson - 19 Bauml - 10 Cable
18 Yakubowski - 23 Thomas - 28 Lawrence
20 Sutter - 9 Tkatch - 16 Stadnyk

Scratches
12 Gay (F) - 17 Blair (F) - 21 Stumborg (D)
25 Borstmayer (D) - 26 Johnson (F) - 29 Forsberg (F)

And here's a quick summary:

1st
0:13 Man Zajac (2) ASST: Stovin (5), DePape (6)
8:32 Sask Forsberg (5) ASST: McFaull (2), McVeigh (9) (PP)

2nd
No scoring

3rd
No scoring

1st OT
2:37 Sask Harmsworth (1) ASST: Cable (6), McFaull (3)

The Bisons were penalized 5 consecutive times in the late 1st and then 2nd periods. Most of those were for jay-walking, as Paul Maurice would say. Other than when penalized, the Bisons probably had a slight edge in play. They certainly had the most point-blank scoring chances.

On a positive note, Byron Spriggs suffered the loss but still stopped 33 of 35 shots. Sask gave Daniel Wapple his first start in goal and stopped 25 of 26 shots, including two breakaways.

Saturday's rematch is at 7:00, just like in the good ol' days.

Usually when the Hørny Ones upset somebody, or when the Evil Monkeys suffer an upset, it is because of a great goaltending performance. But this time Lethbridge won in style, outshooting Alberta 44-34. They bombarded losing goalie Luke Siemens with 17 shots in the 3rd period alone to score the goal they needed to tie the game. Garret Hughson picked up the win.

The Banjocats rolled into the Town of Bedrock and, although 2 game winning streak ended, they still picked up a valuable point. Nice turn-around for an unwanted litter of kittens if ever there was one. Despite the high score, the shots were only 28-23 in favour of Bedrock U. The 2nd period was wild. Regina outscored Calgary 4-3 and outshot them 10-6. That's almost a .500 shooting percentage. Steven Stanford got the win and Andy Desautels the loss.

The Tweety-Birds completely fell apart on home ice to blow this one. After two periods they held a 4-1 lead and were outshooting the Bluegars 21-12. The 3rd period saw MRU outshoot UBC 19-4. There was no weird avalanche of penalties to turn it around. There was just one minor penalty, and that to UBC. The west coast links are not up as I post.

SASKATCHEWAN HUSKIES 2

On a night when the whole CW hit the season's mid-point, the Bisons were faced with the prospect of having to scramble to just eek out a playoff berth. They responded with a strong effort and, though hardly ready to coast, at least have some breathing room, and a shot to move into the top 4.

The alignment shifted somewhat, a natural occurrence when the Bisons have loads of forwards and apparently an injury to Jordan DePape. It looked like this:

MANITOBA

Goal
35 Spriggs (1 Paulic)

Defence
2 Henry - 20 Johnston
3 S Christensen - 9 Hunter
4 Bresciani - 5 L Christensen

Forwards
12 Zajac - 13 Laurencelle - 28 Stovin
25 Merasty - 24 Augert - 10 Dudar
26 Lisoway - 22 B Bowles - 17 Callis
29 Wasylak - 21 Brooks - 8 Bilton

Scratches
6 Heinrich (D) - 14 Nault (F) - 15 S Bowles (F)
16 Paradis (F) - 19 Friesen (F) - 23 Schreyer (F)
27 DePape (F) - 34 Sydora (G)

SASKATCHEWAN

Goal
32 Cooke (30 Wapple)

Defence
4 Harmsworth - 2 McFaull
3 Cox - 6 Fransoo
8 Lishchynsky - 5 Forsberg

Forwards
15 Sofillas - 14 McVeigh - 7 Roach
22 Johnson - 19 Bauml - 10 Cable
18 Yakubowski - 23 Thomas - 28 Lawrence
20 Sutter - 9 Tkatch - 16 Stadnyk

Scratches
12 Gay (F) - 17 Blair (F) - 21 Stumborg (D)
25 Borstmayer (D) - 26 Johnson (F) - 29 Forsberg (F)

And here's a quick summary:

1st
15:55 Man Lisoway (3) ASST: Callis (3), Bresciani (4)

2nd
9:55 Man Zajac (3) ASST: Laurencelle (6), Bresciani (5)
10:37 Sask Thomas (3) ASST: Yakubowski (3)
12:56 Man Dudar (2) ASST: Bresciani (6), Merasty (9) (PP)

3rd
5:57 Man Laurencelle (2) ASST: Zajac (3), Stovin (6)
14:14 Sask Tkatch (3) ASST: Thomas (5), Fransoo (4) (PP)
17:32 Man Hunter (2) ASST: Laurencelle (7), Zajac (4)

The shots on goal were 43-30 in favour of the Banjomutts, which is a bit misleading. The shots were pretty even throughout two periods. Sask piled on the shots by a 17-7 margin in the 3rd period, during which the Bisons had a 3 or a 4 goal lead most of the time.

Byron Spriggs appears to be the starting goaltender now. He had two very strong games over the weekend, stopping 74 of 78 shots. I would expect Spriggs to start at least next Friday.

On the other hand, Jordon Cooke did not look like the CW's leading goaltender. He stopped 25 of 30 shots.

One feature of the Bison scoring is that the goals were not scored by their leaders. DePape was injured. The Merasty-Augert combination threatened lots but did not score. The Zajac-Laurencelle-Stovin line sure had it going (even though they were the only line to give up an even-strnegth goal). Stovin had just the one point but was a force out there. His size was a big factor assisting his smaller linemates. He and Laurencelle centred the line at various times.

All the Bison lines did well. Of note was the line of players who did not suit up on Friday night, Wasylak-Brooks-Bilton, all put in a good effort. They never scored, but were not scored upon either. (No Bison was a "-" on the night.) The checking line was re-jigged so as to include Lisoway-Bowles-Callis. They got the opener.

The Bisons are off Calgary to face MRU next weekend before breaking for exams and Christmas. They return home in the new year to face the Regina Banjocats. Meanwhile, Sask had a drink from the toilets, ate some slop off the floor, peed on a fire hydrant, then hopped in the bus and rode home with their heads out the window.

No photos from Saturday (when Sask was wearing their awesome green jerseys) are up yet. But we have some with their blah blah black ones from Friday night.

The Pussycats strutted into Bedrock on a high after a sweep and had a good game Friday. But Saturday's 1st period brought them back to Earth. Four goals on 17 shots gave the Dinos an insurmountable lead. Coda Gordon scored twice and Matthew Breenfield stopped 33 of 34 shots to claim the win. Andy Desautels was yanked after 4 goals, Mitch Kilgore finished it off.

The Bisons fell behind 4-0 in the 1st period but rallied to make it close. Here is a quick summary:

1st
2:42 MRU Brown (7) ASST: Simpson (9), Amatto (2)
7:34 MRU Rankin (8) ASST: Maclise (54) (PP)
11:28 MRU Brown (8) ASST: Simpson (10), Baker (3) (PP)

Good to see DePape back in the line-up. Byron Spriggs was in the Bison net and he stopped 29 of 33. Colin Cooper stopped 27 of 30 to claim the win. Saturday's rematch goes at 2:00 MDT or 3:00 CDT.

Dec 3: Bisons Collapse

The Bisons were looking good in the first half of this game. The only goal was a shorthanded marker by MRU when Brett Stovin mishandled the puck in his own end. The Bisons suddenly ran into penalty trouble. The Bisons started getting a string of penalties out of thin air for no apparent reason. Two 5-on-3 goals, followed by one for good measure (all by Connor Rankin), put the game away.

Here's the skinny:

1st
5:19 MRU King (2) ASST: None (SH)

2nd
12:21 MRU Rankin (9) ASST: Maclise (6), Smiley (6) (PP)
13:24 MRU Rankin (10) ASST: Brown (4), Maclise (7) (PP)
17:38 MRU Rankin (11) ASST: Maclise (8)

3rd
6:04 MRU Brown (9) ASST: Zarazun (8)
17:10 Man DePape (8) ASST: Stovin (8), Henry (3) (PP)

Goaltenders
Byron Spriggs (L) saves 26 shots 31
Wyatt Hoflin (W) saves 23 shots 24

The Bisons must be lamenting that they never played the Bluegars when they were laden with injuries. They are leading the conference in scoring, with a 7 goal lead over Alberta.

Play resumes on January 6th when the Herd hosts the Regina Banjocats.

I never expected the Monkeys to be skunked like this. Luke Siemens started in goal for the Apes but was ynaked when he allowed 3 goals on 27 shots mid-way through the 2nd. Brendan Burke came in and stopped 10 of 11 shots. Meanwhile, Jordon Cooke again started for the Mutts and picked up a 45 shot shutout.

What a home ice disaster. Sure, the Hørny Ones are stronger than they once were. But two whippings in one weekend on home ice is a horrible sign. Lethbridge outshot them 40-27. Yikes. Garret Hughson got the win. Andy Desautels took the loss. Jay Merkley and Justin Valentino had two goals each to lead the way.

The next event on the agenda is the mini-series of U Sports v. Team Canada Juniors, to take place in Blainville-Broisbiand, Quebec on December 12th and 13th.

The U Sports team is not a true "all-star" team in that 11 spots were reserved for the OUA, and 6 each for the CW and AUS. Here's the roster:

Goaltenders
30 Kevin Bailie (Queen's)
1 Corbin Boes (Dalhousie)
29 Jordon Cooke (Saskatchewan)

Defencemen
9 Spencer Abraham (Queen's)
5 Tim Campbell (Lethbridge)
15 Nathan Chiarlitti (McGill)
22 Martin Lefebvre (UQTR)
2 Kendall McFaull (Saskatchewan)
4 Jordan Murray (UNB)
3 Geoff Schemitsch (Acadia)
6 Derek Sheppard (York)

Forwards
11 Guillaume Asselin (UQTR)
14 Holden Cook (St. FX)
10 Jamie Crooks (Alberta)
19 Jordan DePape (Manitoba)
20 Michael Fine (Ryerson)
18 Olivier Hinse (Concordia)
16 Philippe Maillet (UNB)
12 Michael McNamee (Carleton)
7 Elgin Pearce (Calgary)
21 Mathieu Pompei (McGill)
8 Allain Saulnier (Moncton)
17 Brett Welychka (Carleton)

After pounding the bejeebers out of a sub-standard team selected from the schools of the Big Lemon (i.e. Ryerson, Toronto, York), it was decided last year to draw a team from across the CIS. In the past teams from the CW, or a combination of teams, were capable of beating the Juniors. Here is a compendium of recent results:

Dec. 14, 2004 at Winnipeg: Manitoba Bisons 4 Team Canada 2
Dec. 15, 2004 at Winnipeg: Team Canada 6 Manitoba Bisons 3

Dec, 15, 2006 at Calgary: Cal/Leth 5 Team Canada 4

Dec. 2010 at Toronto: Team Canada 6 OUA Selects 2

Dec. 17, 2011 at Calgary: Team Canada 7 Cal/Leth 4

Dec. 12, 2012 at Edmonton: Alberta Golden Bears 4 Team Canada 1
Dec. 13, 2012 at Calgary: Team Canada 2 Cal/Leth/MRU 0

Dec. 2013 at Toronto: Toronto Selects 3 Team Canada 0

This was a game marked by mediocre goaltending and a wild change of pace. The Juniors built a 4-0 early in the 2nd period, but by the intermission the lead was whittled down to 4-3. The shots were just 29-23 in favour of the Juniors (much lower than is typical in these games). In a twist, the U Sports team used goaltender Connor Ingram from the Junior camp. So Sask netminder Jordon Cooke got to wear a baseball cap, and two other U Keepers got to eat some popcorn. Sam Steel paced the juniors with two goals.

Game 2 goes Tuesday afternoon.

The Danes have been an ascendent team in the international rankings. However, for some smaller countries they manage promotion in a down year for the program. Having lost players like Ehlers they will be in a tough spot to stay in the top pool.

Must be a nice bonus game for the Stingers. This has been a better-than-usual season for them so far, being ranked #10 in the OHT35. They are 11-5-0 in conference play and with this win are 14-7-0 overall.

December 28, 1946

If you were in Winnipeg 70 years ago today you would have had the opportunity to watch a university hockey team from eastern Canada face one from the west, for the very first time. The University of Toronto Varsity Blues arranged a holiday trip to Winnipeg (where they would face the University of Manitoba Bisons in two games at Shea's Amphitheatre) and The Lakehead (where they would have an additional pair of games against the renowned Port Arthur Bearcats).

The game on December 28th was the best one for the Boys from the Big Lemon. They tied the Bisons 2-2. Two days later they were trounced 8-4 by the Herd. Things got no better in The Lakehead (Thunder Bay did not yet exist) as the Bearcats won 7-4 and 9-4 on January 1st and 2nd.

The Blues played in a grandiosely named "CIAU", which was not the national governing body of the same name which later came into being. It was a 4-team loop, which also included McGill, Montreal, and Queen's. The Family Compact, or Chateau Clique, of athletic conferences. A Trudeauesque national conference if ever there was one. I digress.

The U of T was a strong team. They went on to win the CIAU title that year with a 6-2-1 record. They faced Dartmouth University (NCAA, 16-2-2) in an international final. The game was tied 2-2 when they had to stop due to poor ice conditions.

The university game was struggling to get a foothold in the west. The WCIAU was never more than a 2- or 3-team competition until 1956-57. In 1946-47 Manitoba placed 2nd with a 2-2-0 record, whilst Alberta placed 1st and Saskatchewan 3rd. In any event, the tradition of an average team from the west defeating Ontario's best started with this series!

Nevertheless, it is worth noting that the Bisons won the 1928 Allan Cup. That championship gave them a ticket to the 1931 World Championship, which they also won. The University of Saskatchewan had earlier made it to the Allan Cup final, but lost with an Olympic berth at stake.

I could find no reportage of this series. However, it was played at Winnipeg's best facility of the day. Shea's Amphitheatre was designed for horse shows in summer, hockey in winter, and the usual host of indoor events all year round. It held 5,000 spectators and was located to the immediate west of the legislature on the present site of Great-West Life's building. Osborne Stadium (former home of the Blue Bombers) was also there. Both were torn down in 1955 when the Winnipeg Arena and Winnipeg Stadium were built. Any event at the Amphitheatre would have been quite a night out. Check out the pictures!

There was one other university league in Canada at the time, namely the Maritime Intercollegiate Athletic Association. The St. Dunstan's Saints (now part of UPEI) won that title in 1947.

The games which were once announced for UQTR did not appear on teams' websites, so I presumed those were cancelled.

The RMC tour is also in doubt. The game was on the link to the Nichols College S&R page 2 days ago but has now been removed. It is still listed on the JWU S&R page, with no score reported.

So a very sparse holiday season schedule became even sparser. Of the games played, the results were what one would expect.

Edmontown Tournament

Post by Hollywood2 » Sun Jan 01, 2017 1:16 am

An unpublicized holiday season event was held between 3 of Edmontown's 4 univeristy/college teams. Only the Concordia Thunder were not involved. It was hosted by MacEwan, yet all they had was a preview story. The teams provided scores on Twitter, and the Monkeys had hidden scores at the bottom of their page. Here's what happened:

Welcome to the 2017 semester!

The presents are unwrapped. The hangovers should be gone. The credit card bills are on their way. And the Bisons are ready to once again hit the ice.

The first weekend back often produces unexpected results. Th Bisons have to hope such is not the case here. While the Bisons have had a disappointing first semester (largely by going 0-4 gainst MRU), Regina has been overwhelmed. On the weekend of Nov 18-19 it looked like they might turn things around when they swept UBC. But then they finished the semester with 4 straight losses against Calgary and Lethbridge. The Banjocats are last in the conference in both goals for (36, compared to 37 for #7 UBC) and goals against (74, compared to 60 for #7 UBC).

The Bisons cling to a 2-point lead over UBC in the race for the 6th and final playoff spot. They need 4 points here to keep UBC at bay, and keep alive their hopes for a rise.

The Bisons are 11-5-2 against Regina over the last 5 years. 13-5-2 would sure be nice for them.

Both games can be seen on canadawest.tv.
