Selects Fill The Net

A pretty successful weekend for the PBCN Selects as they took both games at home against the Cross Lake Islanders by scores of 7 to 5 and 14 to 2.

Tyler Bird collected 4 goals on Sunday and Jase Martin scored his first four goals of the year as the Selects had no trouble finding the back of the net.

 

With the two wins, the Selects continue to climb up the standings and are now 6-7-0-3 and sit just one point behind Norway House for fourth spot.

Bombers go 1-1 On The Road

The Flin Flon Bombers went 1-1 on their mini road trip to Melville and Yorkton this past weekend.

 

Kenny Marquart got his fifth start of the season on Friday,  and played very well stopping 46 shots as the Bombers beat Melville for the 5th time this season 5 to 2.

 

The night was highlighted by Dawson Karol picking up his two first ever SJHL goals. Even more impressive for Karol was his family was in attendance for his best night so far as a Bomber.

 

Karol's home town is Regina, which is only a couple of hours from Melville.

 

Flin Flon was hoping to ride the momentum into Yorkton on Saturday but fell short losing 5 to 2.

 

The Terriers were excited about it being Teddy Bear Toss night and came out flying and jumped out to a 2 to 0 lead on goals by Greg Nelson and Colton Koran.

 

The Bombers Jacob Vockler fired a beautiful shot over Caleb Allen's left shoulder early in the second to cut the deficit to 2 to 1, but that's as close as the Bombers would get.

 

Dylan Ruptash would score the next three for his first SJHL hat-trick and the Bombers couldn't recover.

 

Alexi Sylvestre did score his 11th of the year late in the third to make it more respectable at 5 to 2.

 

Yorkton has now beaten Flin Flon two straight and they will play again this Friday at the Whitney Forum.

 

The Bombers see their record fall to 17-7-2-1 and are two points behind Laronge for first in the Sherwood and second overall.

 

Flin Flon only has three games remaining in 2022 including the rematch against Yorkton this Friday and a home and home against Laronge on December the 16th and 17th.

courtesy of bombers.ca

 

The Flin Flon Bombers have acquired 19-year-old defenceman Noah Houle from the CCHL’s Kemptville 73’s in exchange for 18-year-old defenceman Lorenzo Bono and a player development fee.

 

The 6-foot-1, 180-pound blueliner from Montreal, Quebec, appeared in 71 games with Kemptville and put up 3 goals and 20 assists. Noah is the brother of former Bomber, Donavan Villeneuve-Houle who suited up for the Bombers from 2017 to 2020.

 

Bono played 11 games for the Bombers and chipped in with 3 assists.

Bombers Trade Cook

The December 1st cut down date is coming up for the SJHL and Mike Reagan has started to make some moves to trim down his roster.

 

The Bombers have dealt Wyatt Cook to the Kindersley Klippers in exchange for a 2023 SJHL 4th round pick and player development fee.

 

Cook was picked up back in October from the Bonnyville Pontiacs of the AJHL,  and picked up 6 points including 5 goals in 16 games with the Bombers.

 

The Bombers will be announcing more  moves ahead of Thursday's CJHL Roster Cut down.

Selects Add Experienced Forward

Clake says he is excited to play for the Selects and doing his part to help bring home a championship in the franchise's inaugural season.

 

 

Duperreault Does It Again

Another big game for Cole Duperreault who picked up his second hat-trick in less than  a week, and helped the Flin Flon Bombers collect a big win.

 

The Bombers were trying to make good on a tough loss to the Melfort Mustangs the night before.

 

It wasn't easy,  but the Bombers pulled out the 5 to 4 win in OT in the rematch Saturday.

 

Zac Somers gave the Mustangs a 1-0 lead midway through the first and that held up til the third.

 

The two teams came out like gangbusters and combined for 7 goals in the final period.  Duperreault led the way for Flin Flon  with a pair, his 17th and 18th of the year.

 

Jaxon Martens scored his 9th and Jeremi Tremblay his 13th.

 

It looked like the Bombers would win it in regulation with a 4 to 2 lead late in the third.

 

Like I have said many times, the Melfort Mustangs are a good team and play well at the Whitney Forum. With the goalie pulled, Melfort scored twice in the final 3 minutes courtesy of  Zac Somers and Ryan Duguay.

 

That was Somers second of the game and third of the weekend.

 

It was off to OT, and the Bombers were determined that they would not let this one slip away.

 

Jeremi Tremblay continues to impress every single game and took the puck up the ice and fought off two Melfort defenders. He got behind the Melfort net and made the pass out front to Cole Duperreault who did the rest blowing the shot past James Venne.

 

This would complete the hat-trick and give Duperreault his league leading 19th of the season.

 

Flin Flon gets the two points and improve to 16-6-2-1. They also take over sole possesion of first place in the Sherwood with 35 points.

 

That is two more than Laronge, but the Wolves have a game in hand. Melfort picks up 3 out of 4 points on the weekend and are starting to challenge with 29 points.

 

The Bombers will be back on the road this weekend in Melville and Yorkton, this Friday and Saturday.

 

102.9 CFAR and flinflononline.com will have both games starting with the Great North GM Coach's Show at 7:10 both nights.

 

U-13 Bombers Win Tournament In The Pas

Congratulations to the U-13 Kinsmen Bombers who were in the Pas for the Wescana Tournament this past weekend.

 

The Bombers went 3-0-1 in the round robin to finish first place and a showdown against the host team from the Pas for the Gold Medal.

 

The Bombers played another great game and took the final 2 to 1 to win the tournament and finish undefeated.

 

The Peds Threads U-11 Bombers were in Nipawin for their first tournament of the year and had a very good showing.

 

Flin Flon beat Martensville and Nipawin handilly in the round robin and tied the Pas heading into the playoff round.

 

The Bombers dropped their Semi- Final to Thompson and would play the B- Final against the Pas.

 

Flin Flon prevailed in a thrilling fashion when Cohen Banting scored the game winner with just over a minute remaining in regulation, as the Bombers won 2 to 1. Lennox Ggnon stood stall in net.

Bombers Lose To Mustangs Add Pearce

Not the way the Flin Flon Bombers wanted to start the weekend in Melfort.

 

The Bombers travelled to the Northern Lights Palace to kick off the home and home and ended up dropping a 6 to 3 decision.

 

Things started well , with Kylynn Olafson and Cole Tanchuk scoring their first goals of the season to give the Bombers a quick 2 to 0 lead.

 

Melforts's leading scorer Zac Somers answered the second Bomber goal and the Mustangs took over.

 

They out scored the Bombers 5 to 1 from that point and picked up their 5th straight win.

 

Somers would add one more, with a pair from Dawson Leroux, Cameron Emigh and Aidyn Hutchinson.

 

Jaeden Mercier scored the other Bomber goal.

 

The Mustangs were finally able to get to Laser Hume after scoring just one goal in the two previous meetings. Hume gave up 4 goals on 25 shots with a couple of empty netters.

 

Joel Favreau was back in net for Melfort and was solid with 36 saves on 39 shots.

 

A big win for the Mustangs who all of a sudden have crept to within 5 points of Flin Flon and Laronge. If the Mustangs can win the rematch in Flin Flon tonight, the deficit would only be 3 points.

 

The Bombers will get a boost with the addition of Rylan Pearce who was reassigned to Flin Flon from the Kamloops Blazers of the WHL.

 

Pearce only dressed in 8 games with Kamloops picking up two assists. He is expected to dress tonight.

 

Don't forget it is the Northland Ford Teddy Bear Toss tonight. So please bring a teddy bear or unwrapped toy to donate towards the Salvation Army Christmas hamper drive. You can throw the teddy bears on the ice after the Bombers score the first goal.
