Weekend fun

Sent from my BlackBerry® wireless handheld

It's a busy weekend and I like it that way.

The klippers are hosting a conditioning camp at the WCEC and I hope to make it to some of it. The 93 and 94 born players hit the ice thursday and the 90-92 born go till sunday.

I'm at the Mcqueen/Finley wedding as a groomsman. I'm told the phone stays away tomorrow or its getting shoved someplace special. Ill do what they say.

Maybe something from camp maybe not. Either way have a great weekend!

More Klipper News


Graduating Kindersley Klippers forward Kirk Pearce has agreed to a scholarship and will play at Brock University (CIS).

Last season, Pearce finished with 27-goals and 37-assists in 56-games, capping a solid three year career in Kindersley. The Rosetown SK native 166-games with the Klippers, scoring 50-goals and 81-assists for his career.

Brock is in St. Catharines, Ontario.

The Klippers have also announced the carding of 1990 defenseman Shayne McVittie (St. Thomas ON).

“He’s a good, solid defenseman,” said Kindersley coach Larry Wintoneak. “He has some experience already and he’s looking for a place to call home for the next two years. I watched him play at a prospects tournament in May and he liked what we had to offer. He has a good combination of offense and defense. He skates well and he’s going to get an opportunity for us to see what he can do. I see him as a top four and we’ll go from there.”McVittie is 6’1”, 190 lbs and should fit in well with Wintoneak’s well known culture of high end fitness training.
Meanwhile, the Klippers have announced Head Scout Jim McInnes is resigning his post and assuming a full-time scouting job with the WHL’s Chilliwack Chiefs. McInnes also has given notice he’s leaving his full-time job in the food sales industry in an effort to concentrate solely on the Chiefs.

Wintoneak has utmost praise and respect for McInnes and even involved him in finding his replacement in the Kindersley organization.

To that end, Cory McCafferty will succeed McInnes.

“Cory has been around the game for many years as a coach and now he’s going to become involved in scouting. He’s well respected as an honest, straight shooting guy,” said Wintoneak.

Random Update

As the title of this post would suggest this is a pretty random update. Random in the fact that this is the first time I've touched the blog in over 2 months!

Since then, Kindersley Klippers' voice Ryan Tunall has moved on to Lethbridge, AB. Good luck Ryan, you'll be missed!


Klippers' coach Larry Wintoneak has been selected to be an assistant coach for Team Canada West at the upcoming World Junior A Hockey Challenge in Summerside, P.E.I. Barry Butler of the MJHL’s Wawayseecappo Wolverines is the other assistant while Rylan Ferster of the BCHL's Salmon Arm Silverbacks will take on head coaching duties.

I can't think of a more deserving guy that Wintoneak. Congrats!


Team Saskatchewan dropped a high scoring affair in the sixth annual SasKota Bowl on Saturday in Rolla, N.D. The American team won the game 50-40. Lumsden's Brady Aulie, who had a pair of touchdowns, was named Saskatchewan's MVP while defensive honours went to linebacker Chase Tuberfield of Meadow Lake. Devin Sapara of Melville and Taylor Johnson of Humboldt also had a pair of touchdowns for Saskatchewan.

Next year's game will be held July 10th at Lumsden High School.


You'll find a lot more high school football on the blog over the next little while. I'll have more on that in the coming days as I put the finishing touches on a project I've been working on. I'm excited.

That's all for now.
