Goal: TWU: Sommer (24 shots, 22 saves); Man: Thornton (34 shots, 29 saves)

After a strong finish on Thursday, the Bisons had no follow-up in this one. I could not attend in person due to car trouble, and had to rely on CWTV. Unfortunately, the stream would not connect for most of the first half of the game. The Bisons had just one line-up change, Eric Fawkes subbing in for Cameron Trimble. The Bisons now need a sweep of their own in Regina next weekend.

It seems the Bisons have made themselves into a team that tries to contain superior opponents, not to crush the weaker teams. Of the Tier 2 teams, they give the Tier 1 teams the most problems. Yet they are 0-4-0 head-to-head against the Tier 2 teams.

With a lot of Friday night overlap, this one was not on my radar. Bedrock U needed a bounce-back win, now they need to complete the sweep.

I caught the end of this one, and it was very well played. Both sides had well-organized defensive structure and could be a problem for any opponent. The rematch should be good. Sask has proven they can play at a Tier 1 level. That 5-way race is on, IMO.

The T-irds’ unbeaten streak came to a halt in this one. They outshot the Bluegars 42-22 but that was not enough. After the Bison game, I focused on the Monkeys/Mutts game so I did not get a real handle on this one.

November 4, 2023: TIER 1 TEAMS SPLIT THEIR SERIES

The Bisons finished their series on Friday night, so all we have is three games from out of town.

On a super busy Saturday (Jets started at 3:00 followed by a smorgasbord of NHL games, two CFL playoff games, and two CW football playoff games), this game was almost lost in the shuffle. But I did see a lot. The score was close than Friday’s, but this was a very dominant performance by Bedrock U. The Banjo-Cats did manage two goals on six shots in the 2nd period. They only had three shots in the 3rd period, hence no chance of a rally.

This game was a late-starter so I saw most of it. Sounds funny to say, but the Evil Monkeys were kinda dominated. They have enough skill to cash in their chances. Overall, the split was probably an appropriate result. The Mutts tied the game at 2-2 on a 2nd period penalty shot, awarded whilst short-handed. Now, That’s a rarity. Matt Berlin definitely was the star of the game in the Monkey goal.

I was able to see the 1st period of this one. The T-irds built a 5-1 lead and had the Bluegars reeling throughout. MRU put up a bit of a fight thereafter to make the final score reasonable. I’m thinking that the five Tier 1 teams are all capable of beating one another, and expect that most series they play will be splits.

For the first time in a long time, these teams will play just one series against each other this season. This series is pretty much the Herd’s last chance to rally for a playoff berth. The Tier 1 teams in the CW are 28-0 against the Tier 2 teams (four of those in extra time). I don’t see that changing a whole lot. So ground must be made up against the Tier 2 teams. Both sides have been outscored rather heavily, Regina 42-27, and Manitoba 44-19.

Last year, the Bisons swept the games in Banjoland, and Regina swept the games in Winnipeg. The games in Winnipeg opened the second semester and started the Bisons on a 1-10-1 run.

I’ll be looking to see if any defencemen are returning to the Bison lineup. Recent series have seen them play with just five, which is not good.

The Banjo-Mutts were 8-0-0 to start the season, with two wins over each Tier 2 team. However, they split against the Evil Monkeys last weekend and, in my opinion, had the edge in play. IMO, the five Tier 1 teams are hard to handicap right now. The Dinos were receiving a lot of positive attention to start, based on last year’s record and a 6-0-0 pre-season, but they have been 1-1-0 against MRU and 0-1-1 against Alberta. I expect this series to be well worth a good look.

If any series can challenge the one in Saskatown for eager anticipation, it is this home-and-home series for the rivals in Saudi Alberta. These teams thus far have the fewest Tier 1 vs Tier 2 games, the Bluegars having just four and the Evil Monkeys only two. Against Tier 1 teams, MRU is 3-3-0 and Alberta is 4-3-1.

In the Tier 2, there is one playoff berth at stake for whichever team can prevail. Right now, the Family Guys are one point out, and Holy Trinity are two points out. Regina and Manitoba will just be hoping that there is no overtime here.

Yet another loss for the Bisons has them teetering on the brink. I was out at a family dinner but did see most of the goals. In the 3rd period the Bisons were down 2-1 and applied severe pressure, generating some powerplay chances. However, they could not score, Regina scored an insurance marker, and an empty-netter wrapped up the scoring. Both sides went 0-for-6 on their powerplays.

November 11, 2023: BISONS HIT THE WIN COLUMN

➤ UofR: Late Manitoba surge gives Bisons 3-2 win over Cougars (with boxscore)

Quick Summary
Man: J. Hooker (08:42 3rd), C. Veloso (17:08 3rd), J. Arpin (17:37 3rd)
Reg: L. Barlage (17:42 2nd), J. Brook (06:27 3rd)
Goal: Man: Hawryluk (41 shots, 39 saves); Anders (41 shots, 38 saves)

The Bisons have hit the win column at long last. Goaltender Ross Hawryluk made his first start of the season, and had a good game. Each goaltender faced 41 shots. (Kolby Thornton faced 44, and stopped 41, on Friday.)

The Banjo-Cats opened a 2-0 lead early in the 3rd period before the Bisons mounted a rally. Captain Hooker opened the scoring with his 9th of the season on a mid-period powerplay. Colton Veloso scored another powerplay goal with less than three minutes left to play. Jackson Arpin then got the winner just 29 seconds later.

Those game-tying and winning goals happened when the CWTV stream was showing a spinning circle. Now that was aggravating.

After both sides went 0-for-6 on the powerplay on Friday, in this game the Bisons were 2-for-3 and Regina was 1-for-2.

Bedrock U needed this road sweep to build some cred as a nation-wide contender. They built a 3-0 lead after the 1st and then hung on for the win. Of note, the Banjo-Mutts went 2-for-3 on the powerplay. I was unable to catch this one due to a crowded afternoon/early evening schedule which included Jets and Bombers, plus the Bison game starting at 5:00.

Goal: MRU: Sims (42 shots, 38 saves); Alta: Berlin (24 shots, 21 saves)

I was able to catch a lot of this one, due to it being the late game. The Evil Monkeys rallied from a thorough defeat on Friday in Calgary to get their own convincing win back in Edmontown. The last two Monkey goals were empty-netters, however they did really control the play in this one.

The Bisons are off to the Town of Bedrock this weekend to face the Dinos. Whilst the Dinos started the season racking up the W’s and coasting to a ranking at the top of the national rankings, they have since come back to Earth a little. They are still #3 in the OHT35, and are prohibitive favourites this weekend.

The Dinos are a Tier 1 team, and the Bisons are a Tier 2 team. Tier 1 teams are 28-0 against Tier 2 teams so far, and only 4 of those wins were in extra time. The Bisons have one of those OTLs, and would likely be happy to pick up one or two points in this series.

The Dinos are way better on offence (51 goals, v 22 for the Bisons) and on defence (30 goals against, v 50 for the Bisons). Each side has some stars. Calgary’s Colson Gengenbach leads the CW in goals with 10, but Jonny Hooker has 9 for the Bisons. The Herd also has Chase Hartje on defence, tied for 4th in scoring by a d-man, with 2 goals and 11 assists.

If the Bisons can steal points here, they will need goaltending. Kolby Thornton of the Bisons and Carl Stankowski of the Dinos are tied for 2nd with .908 save percentages. Thus far, the Dinos have split their goaltending between Stankowski and Carl Tetachuk (.899 S%). Bison backup Ross Hawryluk has a .951 S% in the one game he played last weekend.

The Evil Monkeys have had what is, for them, a wonky start. Yet, they are in the range of the national contenders. The Banjo-Cats are having pretty much the start one would expect. They are generally a borderline playoff team, and that looks to be their fate again this year.

This is the feature match-up of the weekend. The rest have Tier 1 v Tier 2, and this one has Tier 1 v Tier 1. The T-irds started with a sweep of Alberta, then had a soft schedule, but for their split with MRU. In comparison, the Banjo-Mutts are 1-1-0 v Alberta and 0-2-0 v Calgary. Both sides are 8-0-0 against Tier 2 teams. These games should be worth a peak.

This series was previously announced for Holy Trinity’s bye weekend, but it is currently not on either team’s schedule. The schedules on the West Coast were in a constant state of flux in pre-season.

Since TWU left the BCIHL, StFU have dominated the BCIHL. So this year they have two sides. The Globetrotters have a (mostly) road schedule against a hodge-podge of non-BCIHL teams, whilst the “2nd” team operates in the BCIHL, where they have a 2-3-1 record. The Globetrotters lost pre-season games to TWU and UBC. They won twice over Briercrest (ACAC)and once over Pittsburgh (ACHA). In addition to their CW losses, they also lost to Adrian College (NCAA D3), and have four losses to NCAA D1 teams (Michigan, Colorado College, Lake Superior State, and Robert Morris).

The Red Leafs hosted that Briercrest series, and have home games pending against Holy Trinity on December 30th and UBC on January 27th.

Goal: Man: Hawryluk (54 shots, 52 saves); Calg: Stankowski (25 shots, 24 saves)

Ross Hawryluk has caught fire in the Bison net, and managed to keep this one close. Maybe we’ll see a rotation in net. A bit of rest is needed once a goaltender has been tenderized with 50+ shots. The 1st period was very close, and a late goal by Cody Behun had the Bisons looking like a potential giant-killer. However, over the final two frames the shots were 38-13 in favour of Bedrock U, and the score flattered the Bisons. On the positive side, defenceman Ryan Gottfried returned to the Bison blueline.

This was grim from the outset. Kolby Thornton was back as the starter in goal, but maybe his confidence is not where it once was. I got in right at 4:00 when it started, but by the time I got the stream going it was already 2-0. The 1st period was reasonable (shots 15-11 for the Dinos), but in the 2nd the shots were 18-1 for the Dinos and it looked like it. The weekend results vault the Dinos back into 1st place.

The Bluegars bounced back from Friday’s upset with a convincing and dominating victory on home ice. Though scoreless after the 1st, it always seemed inevitable that the floodgates would open.

After being whipped on Friday night, the Banjo-Cats deserved a better fate in this rematch. IMO they outplayed the Evil Monkeys. They went 0-for-6 on the PP, which made the difference. Remember when the Monkeys were NEVER outshot in their games?

If anything, the Banjo-Mutts dominated this game more than Friday’s. Holding a 3-2 lead entering the 3rd, the T-irds were outshot 11-3 in that 3rd period alone. Those five Tier 1 teams never seem to put any distance between themselves and the rest of the pack. The sweep means that these two teams are now tied for 2nd, with dead even strength-of-schedule thus far.

The Bisons bring their first semester to a close with a homestand against the Evil Monkeys. Although they sit 4th in the CW, they and Calgary are the only teams in the CW with positive records against their fellow Tier 1 opponents. (Both due to having an OTL.) The difference is that whereas Calgary, Saskatchewan, and UBC are 8-0-0 against Tier 2, the Monkeys are just 4-0-0. They need to sweep the Bisons here, and MacEwan next weekend, to keep pace for the pennant.

Oddly enough, the Bisons have above-average goaltending stats. Ross Hawryluk came from the backup role to hold the hot hand in his two starts. His stats line is 1-1-0, .936 S%, 3.12 GAA. Kolby Thornton is 0-10-1, .901 S%, and 3.81 GAA. (The Hockey Tech site has two entries for him, with one indicating he surrender 0 goals on 19 shots in 21 minutes. If those should be added to his stats line, he would have a .905 S%, which would be 4th amongst qualified goaltenders in the CW.) His numbers have declined in the last two weekends.

The other positive aspect of the Bison season thus far is the powerplay, sitting at #3 with a 22.6% success rate. The PK is just 78.8%, last in the CW. Overall, they are (barely) on the plus side of the ledger.

Jonny Hooker still leads the team with 9-5-14 in 14 GPs. Chase Hartje is one point behind with 2-11-13, and sits 5th amongst defencemen.

The Monkeys are still contenders, and could easily finish first, but are not as scary as they once were. They used to dominate the shot clock and the scoring race. This year, they have been outshot several games, and last weekend could well have lost to Regina.

Both Ape goaltenders have lesser numbers than the Bison goaltenders. Matt Berlin is 5-0-1, .896 S%, 2.86 GAA and Ethan Kruger is 3-4-0, .869 S%, and 3.31 GAA. They also have just two players at or above a PPG ratio. Eric Florchuk is 6-14-20 and Josh Prokop is 8-8-16. They have outscored their opponents 56-45, whilst the Bisons are down 24-61.

The linked story is a sad one about the death of forward Hayden Ostir’s boyhood friend, Declan Erickson, a year ago. Worth a click, I say.

This is a key series for these teams as they could be fighting for the 6th and final playoff berth this year. The Family Guys are thus far the only Tier 2 team with a win over a Tier 1 team, which gives them a big edge. The Banjo-Cats did well against Alberta last weekend, and could well have matched the Mythical Mutants accomplishment.

After a loss to MacEwan, the Bluegars cannot afford another loss to a Tier 2 team if they want to avoid 5th place. Holy Trinity is, like the Bisons, in a situation where they need a miracle or two to challenge for a playoff berth. A win over the Bluegars last year cost MRU 2nd place and a first round bye.

This is the feature series of the weekend in the CW. The T-irds were swept by the Banjo-Mutts on home ice last week, and now enter the Town of Bedrock looking for a bounce-back. Against Tier 1, UBC is 3-3-0, Calgary is 3-2-1. Against Tier 2, both are 8-0-0. UBC leads the CW in goals scored with 70 (Calgary has 62) and Calgary is 2nd in fewest goals allowed with 32 (UBC allowed 39). So UBC is +31, Calgary +30.

Quick Summary

Goal: Alta: Berlin (29 shots, 26 saves); Man: Hawryluk (36 shots, 34 saves)

The Bisons needed some points against Tier 1 opposition, and really earned it against the Evil Monkeys. This was by the best game of the season for the Herd. Here’s how they lined up:

MANITOBA
Goal:
34 Hawryluk (30 Thornton)

Defence:
8 Toth - 4 Malchuk
16 Hartje - 27 Gottfried

Scratches:
G: Bennett
D: 3 Sexsmith - 8 McLeod - 25 Herhouf - 22 Sakowich
F: 5 Tapia - 13 Fincaryk - 29 Paterson

The Monkeys wore their white jerseys with the Evil Monkey logo, and the Bisons wore their dark brown. This is the best visual combo these teams can offer.

The opening Bison goal was a goal-mouth scramble, initially awarded to Eric Fawkes, later changed to Cameron Trimble, making it 1-0 after one.

The Evil Monkeys levelled the score in a 2nd period they dominated (15-8 on the shot clock). Adam Hall converted a wonderful passing play.

Jackson Arpin restored the Bison lead just about two minutes into the 3rd period. The Bisons then clamped down and appeared to have it under control. But with just over two minutes left, Ross Hawryluk (who had an outstanding game and is certainly on a roll) whiffed on an unobstructed point shot from Noah Boyko. Ugh. Was this to be another disappointment in a season that’s not working?

Nope! Captain Hooker ripped a one-timer in 3-on-3 overtime to salt it away, and the Bisons got two needed points.

One word about the lines. Colton Veloso was injured so all the lines were shuffled about for the ending of the game.

The rematch goes Saturday at 2:00 p.m., not the 3:00 p.m. start previously advertised.

This game was tighter than the score would indicate. Until the Bluegars scored on the PP 13 minutes into the 3rd period, it was just a 1-0 game. The shots in the 3rd period were 15-4 in favour of the Bluegars, so Holy Trinity might not be in great shape for the rematch.

First, do not over-react to the final score. Well into the 2nd period, I thought this had a good chance to be a Bison sweep.

The lineup had three changes. On defence, Brandon Casey was in for Owen Wareham. Up front, Andre Sutter and Riley Zimmerman were in for Colton Veloso and Eric Fawkes. Codey Behun left the game with an injury when Cam Wiebe of the Monkeys kneed him, getting a 5-minute major and a game misconduct.

The Monkeys switched goaltenders, as usual, but were otherwise unchanged. Their line-up was altered when forward Jacob Kendall was hurt and, of course, when Wiebe was tossed.

The difference in this game was the powerplay. The Monkeys went 2-for-3, the Bisons were 0-for-4 and gave up a shorthanded goal.

The 2nd period was what turned the game around. The Bisons trailed 1-0 after one, in an evenly played period. They took control in 2nd, outshooting the Monkeys 13-7. However, the Monkeys got the only two goals, which were similar. The Bisons would get the Monkeys running around in circles for a prolonged period, eventually lose the puck, and rather than switch to defence make a vain attempt to keep up the offence and, instead, surrender a quick break-out with nobody back for rebound control. The 2nd Monkey goal came after Riley Zimmerman missed two close calls in a net-front scramble. The 3rd Monkey goal was shorthanded and was particularly galling, as it made the game 3-0 heading into a 3rd period where the Bisons deserved, at worst, to be tied.

The Monkeys scored in the first minute of the 3rd period, and the Bisons had no bounce-back from that point onward. Andre Sutter (usually a healthy scratch) had his 1st goal for the Bisons, and two late Monkey goals padded their stats and scoreline.

The Bisons end the first semester with a bye next weekend. Then it’s off to Thunder Bay for some non-conference action on December 29th and 30th. The next home series is against UBC on January 5th and 6th.

Yet another split occurred in this battle for 6th place. The Family Guys could have really put a stranglehold on this race, but I reckon this race will last all year.

Holy Trinity played quite well in this one. Trailing 2-1 entering the 3rd, they took a 3-2 lead. The Bluegars scored with 90 seconds left to force OT, and ultimately took it on a shootout. Had Holy Trinity won that shootout, every series this weekend would have been split.

The T-irds must have been feeling some pressure heading into this one. A loss here in the Town of Bedrock and their hopes of a 1st place finish would have taken a serious pounding. The Dinos played down a man, due to that dreaded injury bug. It seems to get to everybody sooner or later.

This is the feature match-up of the weekend in the CW as the 1st semester comes to an end. The top five teams in the conference are so close. Calgary has 25 points, UBC 24, and Alberta and these two teams have 22. A sweep could put one of these teams in 1st place, and the other in 5th.

The Banjo-Cats could be slipping kind of far from the playoff race if they are swept in British California this weekend. The T-irds were on a mini-slump, which they ended in game two last weekend. They are 8-0-0 against the Tier 2 teams, including an earlier sweep of their series in Regina.

Bedrock U is also 8-0-0 against Tier 2 teams, including a home sweep against Holy Trinity. Holy Trinity trail MacEwan by 8 points, so they will need wins over Tier 1 teams if they want to get in to the CW playoff race.

December 1, 2023: BETTER LATE THAN NEVER DURING A BYE WEEK

I had other commitments which kept me away from the laptop Friday night, so this is a brief synopsis of the evening’s events.

The Mythical Mutants had a 3-1 1st period lead, but the Evil Monkeys crawled back into the game. In the end, the Monkeys were all over the Mutants, outshooting them 11-1 and outscoring them 3-0 in the 3rd.

December 2, 2023: WEEKEND OF SWEEPS AS THE 1ST SEMESTER WRAPS UP

The good news for the Bisons is that they lost no ground while not even playing. There were lots of goals this Saturday night. Just read down.

OUT-OF-TOWN SCOREBOARD

Goal: Calg: Tetachuk (22 shots, 20 saves); TWU: Sommer (45 shots, 41 saves)

Odd 1st period. Holy Trinity built a 2-0 lead, but Bedrock U came back to tie it up by intermission. The shots were 26-4 in favour of the Dinos. The rest of the claim was closer (shots 20-18 in favour of the Dinos) but they gradually cemented a lead. Of note, the Dinos played two men short.

Goal: MRU: Farkas (23 shots, 19 saves); Sask: Kooy (29 shots, 24 saves)

This was a key sweep for the Bluegars, actually giving them the best head-to-head record amongst the Tier 1 teams. The 2nd period was wild. Sask entered the period with a 1-0 lead, and left trailing 5-1. MRU went 3-for-3 on the PP. After that wild 2nd period, I switched my focus elsewhere. The stats would imply weak goaltending with a combined 5 goals on 17 shots.

Goal: Reg: Evanoff (45 shots, 38 saves); UBC: Schwebius (23 shots, 22 saves)

The Banjo-Cats look like the weakest team in the CW now. There were only two PPs each, so it was just Cats chasing around fruitlessly after Birds. Reminiscent of Sylvestre, Tweety Bird, and an old lady armed with an umbrella.

Goal: Alta: Berlin (30 shots, 25 saves); MacU: Davis (41 shots, 34 saves)

This was the evening’s nightcap, so I saw a lot if it. Both sides looked sloppy. The Evil Monkeys always looked like they were about to burst out and bury the Family Guys, but never really did.

Still nothing from the Bluegars nor the Evil Monkeys, but lots from the Banjo-Mutts, and MacEwan is always reliable.

Once again, nobody switched categories this week, which is even more unusual. Ontario Tech have beeen moving up, and if they hold on for another week they will be moving up to C+. On the other hand, Lakehead’s two losses move them back to teetering on the brink.

Christmas is over and New Year’s is pending. So some USports teams are kicking off the rust with some weekend action. There are also free streams of this series on OUA TV, for those not seeing enough hockey from the World Juniors, Spengler Cup, and the NHL. So put away the turkey, order some pizza, curry, or cheeseburgers, and get back into the groove.

There used to be 4-team tournament every holiday season in T-Bay, in which the Bisons participated on several occasions. It then became a double-header between Lakehead and an invited guest. This year it is the Bisons’ turn.

The Bisons will be anxious to say farewell to 2023. Last year they went a not-so-bad 7-9-0 in the 2022 1st semester but then fell to 1-10-1 in the 2023 2nd semester. So a reversal would be the goal this season.

The Thundermutts have been wobbly thus far. They looked like a team with a good shot at a U-Cup berth last season, but have fallen back to mid-table team this time. I admit that I root for them when they compete in the OUA, being a former GPAC team and all.

This Friday night game was a late addition to the non-conference schedule. It makes sense that these two teams from Edmontown would play a game like this. However, it would be better to see them choose opponents from another conference. NAIT from the ACAC used to be a part of this process.

TRINITY WESTERN SPARTANS (2-13-1, 6-15-1, OHT35 #31)

If you want to see a Saturday late-night free livestream, they have one here. The BCIHL has all games on YouTube.

This is the Harlem Globetrotters version of the Red Leafs. They have one squad in the BCIHL, and that squad is 4-3-1 and sits in 4th. The travelling team seldom plays in British California. After this game, they have only five games left on their schedule (all in the Excited States) and three of those are on one weekend.

Holy Trinity beat SFU 3-2 on September 9th. In 2022-23, Holy Trinity won two out of their three games (SFU won 6-3, TWU won 5-0 and 5-2).

FWIW, thus far the Globetrotters are 0-2-0 against the CW, 2-0-0 against the ACAC, 0-5-0 against NCAA D1, 0-2-0 against NCAA D3, and 1-0-0 against the ACHA.

This is on January 2nd, which is technically after the holiday season. However, it is on a Tuesday night before conference play resumes. These teams did not meet in the pre-season, as they usually do. Instead, Manitoba and Minot State visited Banjoland and took turns playing these two teams over the same weekend.

The Clippers are not the ACAC doormats they once were. They were 13-9-2 last season, good for 4th place, and have taken a further step this year.

➤ MRU: Bouchard named WHL Grad of the Month for November/December

There are no seasons greetings games for the Bluegars (nor for Sask, Calgary, and UBC) but there is at least news from MRU. Conor Bouchard was named WHL Grad-of-the-Month for November/December. He had 35 points in 25 games last year, and has 16 goals and 20 assists through 16 games this year.
