A Visit With The Sautners



This past August long weekend is one I will not forget for many reasons, one of them being a special visit from a couple of old friends.


This past Sunday I got to sit down with Blaine and Ashton Sautner. Blaine patrolled the Flin Flon Bomber blue line in the late 80's and also got his start in coaching when he was an assistant between 1997 and 2001.


Blaine went on to coach the Battleford North Stars and Regina Cougars of the CIS before retiring from coaching a few years ago to take over the family farm.


Aston was born in Flin Flon and has been able to put together a very nice career so far, including 2 appearances in the Memorial Cup with the Edmonton Oil Kings, winning it all this past spring in London Ontario.


Ashton still has 1 year of junior hockey eligibility remaining.


Here are the two interviews from this past weekend, and I hope you enjoy listening to them as much as I did conducting them.

Roller Highlights




The Roller Goodwin Hockey Tournament wrapped up Sunday at the Whitney Forum, with the Dough Boys closing things out against the Crones.


It was a historic weekend for the Dough Boys who finished 3-0 for the first time in franchise history. If you want to hear more pop by Pharmasave and chat with Ryan Watt, who I am sure would not mind filling you in on it.


The hockey is always secondary and is more about who you can bump into on the weekend. There were no shortage of characters like Tates Andersen, Pat Liss, Dustin Ernst, Todd Horning, Lance Johnston, Edsy, Walter Wynnychenko, Duke Rodnisky, Jack Turner and the list go's on and on.


No shortage of former great NHL stars like Jordy Douglas, Gerry Hart, Reid Simpson and Bobby Clarke who added to a pretty interesting mix of hockey players from every calibre you could imagine.


A big thanks and congrats to Stewie Lloyd, Duke Rodnisky and Ray Crone for organizing a top notch event. Also want to thank the referees Les Boulet, Alex Willett and Walter Wynnychenko for their efforts.


The weekend concluded with a dinner and dance at the Flin Flon Community Hall Sunday featuring the Usual Suspects, who had the masses up and dancing all night with great hits courtesy of CCR, Fleetwood Mac and John Mellencamp.


The draw for the autographed Philadelphia Flyers sweater signed by Bobby Clarke, Reggie Leach and Bill Barber went to Scott Smith.


Every ticket was sold and the proceeds will be donated to Flin Flon Minor Hockey.


It was announced that the Roller will be headed to Calgary, Easter of 2015, and back to Flin Flon for the August long in 2016.


This is such a special weekend for the community and you get a real sense of what Flin Flon is all about. It was a real pleasure for me to not only cover the tournament for 102.9 CFAR, but partake in the festivities and suit up in the 50 and over. I even scored 2 goals on the weekend, but then again who's keeping track. I guess I am.


Nice to see lots of folks in the stands and at the social which was a complete sell out.


Till next year in Calgary, keep your stick on the ice and once a Flonner always a Flonner.
