Afternoon hockey fix

As the Riders touch down in Calgary this afternoon let's take this opportunity to talk some hockey.


The SJHL handed down a suspension yesterday to Melville's Craig Karius. He'll get three games as a result of a match penalty in Saturday night's game against Yorkton.

The big thing here is the timing. Karius will now be forced to sit out and miss the entire Showcase in North Battleford beginning on Thursday.


There are four games on the SJHL schedule today.

La Ronge @ Weyburn
Nipawin @ Flin Flon
Notre Dame @ Humboldt
Yorkton @ Battlefords

A win by Yorkton could put the Terries in a tie for second with Kindersley having a game in hand.

Blue Jackets F Dorsett on IR after Neal boarding

COLUMBUS, Ohio — The Columbus Blue Jackets have placed forward Derek Dorsett on injured reserve retroactive to Thursday.

General manager Scott Howson made the announcement Monday.

Dorsett was injured Thursday in a 4-1 win over the Dallas Stars when he was hit from behind by Stars forward James Neal.

Dorsett was dazed after striking his head on the boards, and Neal was assessed a major penalty for boarding and a game misconduct. The NHL suspended him for two games and he must forfeit $8,515 in salary, with the money going to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.

Neal said he didn't intend to injure Dorsett.

Dorsett has one goal and three assists in 18 games this season.


I'm putting together a list of former Klippers still playing hockey to give you an update of where they are now. I'll hopefully have that ready sometime next week.


That's all for now. Enjoy the afternoon.
