    Default Off-Season Stories


    Most teams in the CW have a story posted this off-season, and here's a summary, other than the previously posted stories on the new TV deal and Butenschon getting a contract at UBC.


    Sask's plans to replace with long-condemned Rutherdump with a new facility appear to be well underway. The rumour mill states that this will be Saskatown's 3rd building with indoor plumbing.

    The MRU Bluegars will be going through a transition this coming season. Two stalwarts, Cam Maclise and Matt Brown, have signed pro deals with the Colorado Eagles of the ECHL.

    The Hrny nes have two significant announcements, one an arrival and the other a departure. Their captain, conference all-star defenceman, and 3rd leading scorer, Tim Campbell has signed in France. He will be replaced by Kamloops Blazer defenceman Dallas Valentine. Tough shoes to fill, but still a quality recruit for a building program.

    Elgin Pearce left the Bedrock Dinos to join Bison goaltender Byron Spriggs with the Manitoba Moose (AHL). Twenty goals in 28 games will earn a guy a shot. He still has a year left and previously played in the ECHL. He was on an ATO so, like Spriggs, could still play in the CWUAA.

    The Evil Monkeys had some dubious goaltending last year and have lined up some competition in the crease with Moose Jaw Warrior goalie Zach Sawchenko.
