UQTR is now 2-0 in a round-robin tournament. Also at 2-0 are the Nottingham Panthers, the defending champion of the EIHL, the "big leagues" in the British Isles. Kassel is in the DEL2, which is Germany's 2nd tier league. The Bisons have played teams from that league in their tours of Europe.

On Sunday, the tournament wraps up with games between Nottingham v UQTR and Amiens v Kassel.

One note: Due to the hot weather at this time of year the first 3 games of the tournament had to be played in a smaller secondary arena.

BTW, the scores of the Napoleon Cup games nor incolving UQTR are as follows:

Aug 26: Nottingham 3, Kassel 0
Aug 27: Nottingham 5, Amiens 3

Despite the loss, UQTR must consider their European sojourn to have been a success. They were 3-1-0 and will bring home some hardware.

There are no hockey games in the CIS on the Labour Day weekend. We are now less than 9 days away from the first Bison game.

We are just a day away from the start of the season. At this stage it is hard to do much of a preview because the Bisons have yet to upload a roster page for this year. One good reason is that the season is starting a week earlier than usual. Also, the training camp roster usually undergoes updates as players are added and deleted.

However, I found a useful link at Elite Prospects. Here is what I found. On this list, "confirmed" is with respect to the Elite Prospects list.

The top 3 scorers from 2015-16 (Merasty, DePape, and Stovin) are "unconfirmed". There are already 15 forwards on the list. Like I always say, you cannot evaluate the quality of a recruiting class until you see who is eligible to return but is not returning.

Also, I have nothing to say about Jamestown. This is the first season for the program so Friday night's debut will go down in their history as a momentous occasion.

Another recruit?

Post by Hollywood2 » Thu Sep 08, 2016 5:53 pm

Reid Zalitech - D - Moose Jaw (WHL)

- A right-handed defenceman with WHL experience would be an asset. But is he playing? Is he playable? I came across his name at Elite Prospects. They linked to a story from almost a year ago in the Moose Jaw Times.
Zalitach played 65 games in two seasons with the Warriors. He was acquired from Vancouver for a fourth round pick in 2015 and a third rounder in 2016.

"Reid re-injured his knee during the week," Millar said. "He has played for the past while with some chronic pain in his knee and he just feels he can't continue to do so. It's been a real challenge for him. He's going to move on with his life as well and is looking at going to the University of Manitoba in the beginning of January."

Zalitach had previously torn his MCL and also had a patellar dislocation in his knee during his career.
We'll see.

Sept 9: Bisons Coast In Jimmies Franchise Debut

Post by Hollywood2 » Sat Sep 10, 2016 1:07 am

JAMESTOWN JIMMIES 0
MANITOBA BISONS 6

Links:
• [U of M Schedule/Results]


It is always nice to get out to hockey for the dirst time in late summer. The crowd was small, yet more than I anticipated due to the Goldeyes having a hom game and TV featuring the Red Sox v Blue Jays and the World Cup exhibition game.

The game was also significant in that the Jamestown team was playing their first ever game. Will this lead to bigger and better things? Time will tell. Althoufh they looked sharp in their bright orange jerseys, they were in way iver their heads. One can safely say the score flattered them.

I have thus far not seen a game report and summary. The Bisons held period leads of 3-0 and 5-0. The shots be period were 15-3, 17-2, and 9-5. Justin Paulic shared the shut-out with Dasan Sydora. Goals were scored by Justin Augert, Jesse Paradis, Brett Stovin, Dylan Kelly, Joel Schreyer, and Jordan DePape.

There was a vast difference betweem the teams. I don't believe that Jamestown had consecutive shots in the game. There were only maybe 1 or 2 faceoffs per period in the Bison end. Of the 10 official shots only 2 or 3 actually required effort.

My vision is not good at present so I could not jot down the alignment. I got help from my son for the Bisons and got this:

Goal
1 Paulic - 34 Sydora

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

Forwards
16 Paradis - 28 Stovin - 27 DePape
18 Kelly - 25 Merasty - 29 Wasylak
8 Bilton - 11 Laurencelle - 24 Augert
21 Brooks - 17 Callis - 23 Schreyer

Scratches
G 35 Spriggs
D 6 Heinrich
F 10 Dudar - 12 Zajac - 14 Nault
F 15 S Bowles - 19 Friesen - 22 B Bwles
F 26 Lisoway - 30 Stagg

So 20 forwards are trying out for the team, and just 7 defencemen. I remember one season when they kept 10 defencemen and 14 forwards, and played many games with 2 or 3 d-men playing forward. It is mucj harder to do the reverse.

One notable absence from the roster is defenceman and former #12 Brock Sutherland. He could have been back for a 5th year but likely graduated after 4 years and has moved on. There were also two new names not previously announced as recruits.

Blake Heinrich - D - Portland (WHL)

- This Minnesota boy played two full seasons with the Sioux City Musketeers of the USHL then went to the Portland Winterhawks in the Dub. He had been a recruit for UMD but then switched to the major junior route.

Daniel Stagg - F - Cochrane (NOJHL)

- He played a mix of Junior A and B hockey before being recruited by Portage College last year. However he did not play at all in 2015-16. Looks like a walk-o.

MANITOBA BISONS 9

Links:
• [U of M Schedule/Results]
• [U of M Twitter]


The Jimminies came out with some intensity, giving it a literal "college try" after their Friday night debacle. For one period, it worked to an extent. The Bisons came out trampling them but on a PP the Jimmies actually carried the play and had scoring chances. However, the Bisons got goals from Channing Bresciani and Remi Laurencelle (on a fabulous breakaway) and outshot them 12-5.

In the 2nd period, Byron Spriggs replaced Dasan Sydora in the Bison goal. This gave each goaltender 2 periods on the weekend. It seemed that the 1st period physicality wore out the Jimmies. They were gassed and the Bisons piled on 4 goals and outshot them 15-2. Goals came from Shawn Bowles, Liam Bilton, Justin Augert, and Brett Dudar. Dudar's was on a nice passing play where he was left to put the icing on the cake.

The 3rd period was more of the same. I believe that the shots were 14-3, for 41-10 on the night. The Bison goals were scored by three newcomers: Hudson Friesen, Quintin Lisoway, and Daniel Stagg (into an empty net!). Of note, Lisoway switched from #26 to #23 (taking Schreyer's jersey) and Stagg switched from #30 to #29 (Wasylak's jersey). Friesen's goal was the end of a nice passing play with his linemates, Laurencelle and Augert. Incidentally, that line were also the 3 stars.

Another interesting tidbit: No Bison scored twice in either game. Only one (Augert) scored in both. He was the only player to score on Friday and dress on Saturday.

A couple of players wore a different number than was listed on the line-up sheet. So these alignments may not be 100% accurate.

Goal
34 Sydora - 35 Spriggs

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

Forwards
19 Friesen - 11 Laurencelle - 24 Augert
12 Zajac - 17 Callis - 8 Bilton
15 S Bowles - 22 B Bowles - 10 Dudar
23 Lisoway - 21 Brooks - 29 Stagg

Scratches
G 1 Paulic
D 6 Heinrich
F 14 Nault - 16 Paradis - 18 Kelly
F 23 Schreyer - 25 Merasty - 27 DePape
F 28 Stovin - 29 Wasylak

I did not see a 6 or 14 out there. So if Heinrich of Nault drew into the lineup it was in a different jersey number.

The Monkeys completed the CW's sweep of the Tier II ranks. However, NAIT is a legit CW-level team. They dominated the ACAC last year, going 36-0, including playoffs. They won a number of games against CW teams, including the Brick Invitational Tournament. So the Monkeys have to be happy with this win in the Athabasca tournament finale.

All players except Heinrich played at least once. He has a tryout with the Minnesota Wild. They really need a 7th defenceman. In fact, I would like to see an 8th. I am wondering if any of the forwards could be moved back.

This event is a two games per team event. In past years Regina would add a game against Briercret just so that they could wipe them out. Here's the schedule, all times at CDT:

Regina v Saskatchewan 7:00 p.m. (Ochapowace First Nation)
Calgary v Manitoba 7:00 p.m. (The Co-operators Centre)
Manitoba v Saskatchewan 12:00 p.m. (The Co-operators Centre)

Sept 17: Bisons Beat Mutts, Claim 2nd

This win for the Herd left both teams at 1-1-0 for the weekend and tied for 2nd. The Bisons were awarded 2nd by virtue of the win. Here's the report from the host site:
Manitoba kicked off Saturday's action with a 5-2 victory over the Saskatchewan Huskies, led by Brett Dudar who had two goals and an assist. Daniel Stagg, Brett Stovin and Brett Brooks also found the net in the win.
They also added a blurb on Friday's game:
Also on Friday night, the Dinos dismantled Manitoba, earning a 7-2 win at The Co-opertaors Centre. The Dinos exploded for six unanswered goals over the first 45 minutes thanks to Danny Gayle, Luke Harrison, Mackenzie Colasimone, Chris Collins, Walchuk and Dumonceaux. Stagg and Stovin replied for Manitoba and Robbie Fisher added one more for the Dinos.
It is not likely that I will find a roster link nor stats for either game. Not surprising to see Stovin score in both games, and Dudar closed strong when he plaued two years ago. But Stagg may be a surprise. This would give him 3 goals in 3 games as a walk-on in a camp with 20 forwards. Of course, last weekend's goal was an empty-netter and Friday's goal was once the game was out of hand. Next weekend's roster against Regina should be interesting.

Impressive numbers for Bedrock U. Mr. Slate must be impressed. Without stats it is jard to know how the jumped all over the Bisons.That score seems to be the only anomoly in the tournament.

You have to give credit to UBC as an orfanization for uploading the rosters and stats. Or at least some of them. The daily stats link does not link to the usual game stats page but does link to team pages. At least for now.

After hosting a 4-team event last weekend, the Banjo-Cats have the honour of bparding a bus leaving Saskatchewan this weekend. For Regina's new recruits the first road-trip could be an eye-opener. Things like cutlery, toothpaste, colour TV, indoor plumbing, and shoelaces can overwhelm a young hick.

Although ranked 8th in the CW by most people, the Cats should be a huge step up from the Jamestown team the Bisons faced in their other home series.

The Bison roster page is not yet updated for this year, so I don't know if any cuts have been made.

ELSEWHERE

The ACAC starts their schedule so no more interlcok for them. Four teams are off to Edmontown for the Brock Invitational. And in an interesting match-up YBC will host Ryerson. That leaves Lethbridge with a rock in their Halloween bag. Here's the schedule:

Sep 21 Edmonton Oilers Rookies (NHL) at Alberta
Sep 22 Calgary at Mount Royal
Sep 23 Ryerson at U.B.C.
Sep 23 Saskatchewan at Alberta
Sep 24 Calgary v Saskatchewan at Edmonton
Sep 24 Mount Royal at Alberta
Sep 24 Ryerson at U.B.C.
