Wednesday afternoon blogging

A few quick hitters this afternoon from

Estevan Bruins forward Payden Benning has committed to the Curry College Colonels for the up coming season. Benning played three seasons with the Bruins joining the team for the 2005-06 season out of the Estevan Midget AA program. In 2007-08, Benning led the team in regular season scoring with 57 points in 53 games and added an additional 8 points in 6 playoff games.


The Flin Flon Bombers have received commitments from two more rookies. 1990 born forward Mathieu Lecours (pronounced le-cure) from the Sudbury Nickel Capital Wolves and 1990 born defenseman Frank Riddle of St. Catharines ON.

Lecours was the second leading scorer in the Great North Midget League with 38-goals and 44-assists in 31-games.

Riddle, 6’0” 155 lbs, played at Stanstead Prep School (in Quebec) last season and had 5-goals and 29-assists in 51-games.


Also Mustang Matt Hill has committed to Queen's University in Ontario this season as well the Notre Dame Hounds have John Esposito joining the team. John is the younger brother of Angelo Esposito who was drafted by the Pittsburgh Penguins and traded to the Atlanta Thrashers in the Marian Hossa deal.


I found out that there will be no Klipper golf tournament this year. I guess for another year I can still call myself the defending champ.

Also, I'm working on some new and exciting things for this season. The new blog is one of them and there will be new features added to the blog as the season draws near. I am also working on a couple of other things that will hopefully take Klipper coverage above and beyond what you have seen in the past. One of those being new and improved audio features that I will explain further at some point before the start of the new season.

Until then have a great afternoon!
