Gotta love those Fridays... especially when you just bought yourself a new car this morning... it's an '01 grand am for those of you who were asking.
A couple of quick notes here before I go on the air.
The La Ronge Ice Wolves were part of a couple deals. The following is from sjhl.ca:
The La Ronge Ice Wolves have acquired 1990 born forward Michael Bzdel from the Nipawin Hawks for future considerations.
Bzdel was fourth on the PJHL’s Tri-Town Thunder in scoring last year as a 17-year-old rookie. He fired 20-goals and 22-assists in 33-games. He also dressed for 4-games with Nipawin and picked up 1-point.
The Ice Wolves have also acquired the SJHL list rights to 1991 born forward Jesse Dengler from the Notre Dame Hounds as the future considerations in last year’s trade that saw the Hounds pick up Kyle Ireland.
Dengler had 13-goals and 8-assists in 9-games with the Humboldt Midget Broncos of the Centre Four Hockey League. Dengler is still midget eligible for the upcoming season.
Also the SJHL has extended its contract with Sherwood Hockey for another three years. Sherwood Hockey is the official pant, glove and stick of the SJHL.
The Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League is pleased to announce a new sponsorship agreement with Sher-wood Hockey Inc.
In exchange for receiving Sher-wood's financial support to the SJHL, the league will continue with the naming rights in the southern conference to be referred to with the sponsorship title. Web presence, audio advertisements, print ads in all league programs, and an on-ice logo in each centre will also provide Sher-wood with a very visible profile in each SJHL community.
Sher-wood's Doug MacInnes says, "Sher-wood Hockey Inc. is very excited to be involved with the SJHL for another three years as the official glove, pant, and stick of the SJHL. Sher-wood Hockey Inc. embraces the SJHL's rich tradition and its place as the top Junior 'A' League in the world. We are also truly honored to be outfitting the future of Saskatchewan hockey and providing them with the tools to achieve all of their goals."
Among the NHL Players who endorse Sher-wood are Ottawa Senators forwards Jason Spezza and Antoine Vermette as well as Tomas Plekanec of Montreal, and Pierre-Marc Bouchard from the Minnesota Wild.
SJHL President Laury Ryan says, " We are pleased to continue our partnership with Sher-wood. The product and service that they provide our teams and league provide our players the best equipment in the market."
By the way I am 1-0 this week in my CFL picks as the Stamps beat up on the Ti-cats last night. Ryan Tunall (got his picks in at the last minute) is also 1-0.
More to come later in the day...
