OUT-OF-TOWN SCOREBOARD

The Bisons have the weekend off, which is not surprising following their trip to the British Isles. None of the teams out east will start until next week. This week's best source for scores and updates will be Twitter. Also, none of the teams has a 2018-19 roster page uploaded. Here's what happened on Friday, September 7, 2018:



ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS 5
U.B.C. THUNDERBIRDS 2

Twitter was about the only source for updates, as is often the case in the pre-season. It sounds like the Evil Monkeys handled the T-irds quite easily. This series is being played in Penticton, as part of the "Young Stars Classic" with Vancouver Canucks and Winnipeg Jets rookies. There are no games scheduled between NHL and CW teams.



MACEWAN GRIFFINS 2
CALGARY DINOSAURS 6

ACAC: [Schedule & Results]


According to the string of tweets, this was scoreless until late in the 2nd when the Dinos took a 2-1 lead. In the process, they enjoyed a 26-12 edge in shots on goal. Presumably that 3rd period must have been quite dominating as Bedrock U outscored the Griffins 4-1 in the period. This one was held in the Town of Bedrock, and Saturday's rematch will be in Edmontown.

The Dinos also have a recruiting announcement, available in the links. They have now confirmed five recruits from the WHL. They have two defencemen coming, and three forwards.

James Shearer (D) - Brandon Wheat Kings (WHL)
Jordan Henderson (D) - Medicine Hat Tigers (WHL)
Graham Black (F) - Swift Current Broncos (WHL)
Regan Nagy (F) - Prince Albert Raiders (WHL)
Cal Babych (F) - Everett Silvertips (WHL)



RED DEER COLLEGE KINGS 2
LETHBRIDGE PRONGHORNS 4

Not much can be gathered on this one. Lethbridge has been through some turmoil so any sort of a win must be a great relief. The Horny Ones held period leads of 2-1 and 3-2.
