Kodiaks Improve to 4-0

There is no stopping the Creighton Kodiaks who continue to out power their opposition in the Northern Saskatchewan Football League.

 

Yesterday, the Kodiaks improved to 4-0 with another impressive  offensive display in a 54 to 20 win over Pinehouse.

 

Once again the Kodiaks pounced on the opposition early and bulit up a 40 to 6 lead at half time.

 

The offense was spread out with Carson Straile picking up a pair of touchdowns and Payton Pelletier, Aidan Joa Hall, Ethan Lavis, Jaxon Smith and Owen Durette all finding the end zone.

 

Gracie Dubinak was able to kick 6 converts.

 

Next up for the Kodiaks will be their toughest test of the year as they travel to Cumberland House next Wednesday.

 

Cumberland house is also undefeated on the season and have a lot of very good athletes and should give Creighton everything that they can handle next week.

Kodiaks Host Pinehouse

The Creighton Kodiaks will be back in action  today as they welcome the Pinehouse Lakers to the Creighton Field.

 

The Kodiaks are an impressive 3-0 on the season and are fresh off a 60 to 13 win against Sandy Bay in the Kodiak's home opener this past Friday.

 

This was the first game that the Kodiaks actually gave up points after shutting out Laronge and Ahtahkakoop to open up the season.

 

Chicken Chef will once again be running the concession and there will be a 50/50.

 

The Phantom Lake Golf Club has also donated 2 rounds of golf and a cart, so pick up your raffle tickets for 5 bucks.

 

Kickoff today is at 3:30.

Martens Wins It In OT

Another strong performance from the Flin Flon Bombers at the SJHL Showcase in Warmen yesterday.

 

Veteran Jaxon Martens who has broken out offensively picked up his second of the season just 50 seconds into the 3 on 3.

 

Martens,  who also picked up 2 assists earlier in the day converted a nice pass from linemate Jaeden Mercier to beat Alexis Giroux to give the Bombers the 5 to 4 victory.

 

Cole Duperreault scored 2 more goals to give him a team leading 6 on the season.

 

Other goals came from Dryden Jeannot who scored his first and Jeremi Trembley added his second.

 

The Melville goals came from Zach Cain, Ayden Lamarre, Payton Kostyshyn and Brayden Fryfogle.

 

The 18 year old out of Regina, Kenneth Marquart made his first start of the season and played very well stopping 31 out of 35 shots.

 

His counterpart Alexis Girous stopped 29 out of 34.

 

The Bombers improve to 3-1-0-1 and now sit top spot in the Sherwood Division with 7 points.

 

Melvilee will drop to 2-2-1 and sit second in the Viterra Division.

 

Next up will be division rival Nipawin who come to town on Saturday. Flin Flon will try to avenge a 5 to 2 loss at the Cage on opening weekend.

 

Puck drop is 7:30 and will be broadcast on 102.9 CFAR and flinflononline.com.

 

 

Bombers Stymie Wings

It may have been the most complete game of the season for the Flin Flon Bombers who beat the Weyburn Red Wings last night at the Showcase 4 to 1.

 

Flin Flon finally got some secondary offense from Liam Bridger, Jeremi Tremblay, Jaxon Martens and Alexi Sylvestre who  all collected their first goals of the season.

 

The Bombers also put in a good effort defensively and only allowed 31 Weyburn shots and Harmon Laser Hume did his job making 30 saves.

 

The only blemish was a Weyburn powerplay goal from Jakob Kalin early in the third period.

 

The Bombers improve to 2-1-1 on the season and find themselves second in the Sherwood Division, 1 point behind front running Laronge. Flin Flon also has a game in hand.

 

Next up will be the Melville Millionaires as the Showcase in Warman continues today as this matchup will go down at 2:30 MB time.

 

The Mills beat Notre Dame yesterday 4 to 3 and sit at 2 and 2 on the season.

 

Flin Flon took 3 of the 4 meetings head to head last year.

 

 

Offensive Woes Continue

A decent effort from the Flin Flon Bombers, but they are still struggling to find the back of the net early in the SJHL season.

 

Laronge made their way to the Whitney Forum on Friday and pulled out the 2 to 1 shootout victory.

 

It was a good start for the Bombers when returning defenseman Cory King was able to fire a nice snap shot,  over the right shoulder of Dawson Smith to give Flin Flon a 1 to 0 lead after 1.

 

Laronge answered with a goal of their own on the powerplay early in the second,  when Dylan Handel grabbed a loose puck back of the Bomber net and beat Laser Hume with the wrap around.

 

That was all the offense for the rest of regulation and OT, as both goalies did their job.

 

The Wolves dominated the shootout with both Dylan Handel and Ethan Strik scoring on their chances. Dawson Smith stopped both Bomber shooters, Jaeden Mercier and Cole Duperreault.

 

Flin Flon's record will drop to 1-1-1 and have only scored 5 goals in the 3 games. 4 of the goals courtesy of Cole Duperreault.

 

It was nice to see Cory King score his first ever SJHL goal and he has really stepped up his play and is one of the best Bomber blueliners so far  this season.

 

Final shots were 43 to 32  in the Bombers favour. Dawson Smith looks like one of the top tenders in the league and didn't give Flin Flon much.

 

Next up for the Maroon and White express is the SJHL Showcase in Warman.

 

Normally , you would think the Bombers could snap out of their funk by playing Weyburn and Melville, but both those teams have improved immensely this year.

 

Weyburn just beat the defending league champs, Estevan 9 to 2 on Friday.

 

Flin Flon will play Weyburn tonight at 8:30 MB time and face the Mills at 2:30 MB time tomorrow.

 

Next action at the Whitney Forum will be this Saturday when Nipawin comes to town.

 

Queens Win Tournament In Creighton

Congratulations to the Senior Hapnot Queens won won the first volleyball tournament of the year this past weekend in Creighton.

 

The Queens knocked off both Creighton teams, Carrot River and Sandy Bay in the round robin.

 

That would set up the Championship Final against Churchill out of Laronge and Churchill couldn't handle the Queen's serves and they dominated the final winning in straight sets.

Kodiaks Roll Over Sandy Bay

The Creighton Kodiaks did not disappoint the large crowd at Creighton Field this past Friday as they won their third straight game taking it to Sandy Bay 60 to 13.

 

After a bit of a slow start the Kodiak offense kicked it into high gear and took a commanding 46 to 6 lead at half time.

 

Carson Straile had another great night as he led the way with 4 touchdowns including a 70 yard touchdown return.

 

Payton Pelletier, Aidan Joa Hall, Marcus Kennedy and Josh Trumbley scored the other touchdowns with Gracie Dubinak adding 6 converts.

 

Sandy Bay did throw some different things at the Kodiaks offensively but Creighton was able to make some adjustments in another dominant performance.

 

Creighton School would like to thank everyone for coming out and taking part in the first ever under the lights game. The crowd was estimated to be between 400 and 600 people.

 

The Kodiaks improve to 3-0 and Sandy Bay will drop to 2-1.

 

Creighton will host Pinehouse in their next game this Wednesday at the Creighton Field starting at 3:30.

OCN Storm 7 PBCN Selects 5

The PBCN Selects hosted their first home exhibition game last night welcoming the OCN Storm to the Whitney Forum.

 

The Selects played a lot better last night dropping a 7 to 5 decision with an empty net goal.

 

Dwayne McKenzie held the hot hand for PBCN as he led the way with a goal and an assist.

 

Other PBCN goals came from Caden Joanis, Domi Leask , Tyler Bird and Leon Natamogan.

 

Starting goalie Braxton Constant Kuba allowed 2 goals on 23 shots while local product Hayden Linklater allowed 4 goals on 18 shots.

Friday's game is in Carrot River with the re-match at the Whitney Forum on Saturday at 7:30.

Kodiaks Host Sandy Bay On Friday

The Creighton Kodiaks will finally play their much awaited home opener this Friday under the lights against Sandy Bay.

 

The defending Northern Saskatchewan football champions have rolled over Ahtahkakoop and SMVS out of Laronge,  and haven't given up a single point in two lopsided victories to start the season.

 

Sandy Bay is also 2-0 and always play the Kodiaks tough according to Head Coach Ryan Karakochuk. "Sandy Bay has traditionally given us trouble and beat us the last time we travelled there a couple years back. They throw the ball a ton and is a big reason why they are 2 and 0. We need to be ready for that and they will present a different type of challenge."

 

Kickoff will be at 7:30 this Friday night at the Creighton Field and there will be lots of events taking place including a 50/50, raffles and Chicken Chef will be looking after the concession.

Bombers Lay An Egg In Nipawin

It wasn't the result or the effort the Flin Flon Bombers were looking for in Nipawin on Saturday night.

 

The Bombers who worked so hard for their 2 to 0 win  against Melfort on Friday were never really in Saturday's game.

 

Flin Flon definately had bus legs and didn't generate much for offensive chances in the first period and were quite fortunate it was scoreless after one.

 

The second was a different story as the Hawks would get rewarded with four straight goals from Joel Mabin, Bryden Kiesman and two from Braxton Buchberger.

 

The Bombers did get a little momentum late in the frame when Cole Duperreault scored on the power play with just 26 seconds to go.

 

Duperreault found the back of the net again early in the third and it looked like the Bombers might be able to mount the comeback.

 

The offense would sputter the rest of the way and Maguire Ratzlaff would score an empty netter to give Nipawin the 5 to 2 win.

 

The Hawks were able to avenge their 7 to 4 loss against Laronge from Friday and were also able to beat the Bombers at the Cage.

 

Flin Flon won all 4 meetinmgs in Nipawin last year.

 

Harmon Laser- Hume faced his former team and gave up 4 goals on 23 shots after recording a shut out a night earlier.

 

New comer Reid Lalonde out of Edmonton picked up the win with 25 saves.

 

After opening weekend all 4 teams in the Sherwood Division sit at 1-1. The Bombers will get a few dayts off before welcoming Laronge to the Whitney Forum on Friday.

 

On a side note, the Bombers did trade local favorite Jordan Pfoh to Dryden of the SIJHL just before Saturday's game.

 

I just wanted to say that Jordan was the ultimate team guy who never complained about his ice time and was always the first to jump out and congratulate his team mates after a win.

 

He is the example of what a good team-mate should be. Good luck to Jordan in Dryden and I hope he has an excellent 20 year old season. He really deserves it.

Kings And Queens Soccer Results

It was a good weekend for the Hapnot Senior Soccer Teams who travelled to Swan River for the first tournament of the year.

The Queens finished first going 3-0 with wins over Minnedosa in penalty kicks 3 to 2, and a pair of 2 to 1 wins against Swan River and Thompson.

 

The Kings will be in action tomorrow night as they welcome Moose Lake to Foster Park at 5 pm.

Bombers Win Home Opener

It was just the start the Flin Flon Bombers were hoping for to kick off the SJHL regular season last night.

 

After a very inspiring video tribute from the graduatiing players from last year, the Flin Flon Bombers and Melfort Mustangs took to the ice to rekindle the rivalry.

 

One of the big question marks heading into this season was the Bomber goaltending situation. Neither goalie is back from last year and Cal Schell had a season for the ages and has moved on to the NCAA.

 

Harmon Laser Hume was just picked up from Nipawin and maybe answered some of those questions about the goaltending situation,  as he stopped all 34 Melfort shots to pick up the shut out in the Bombers 2 to 0 win.

 

Not bad for his first start with his brand new team. 

 

Laser Hume had to be really good last night to match his counterpart at the other end of the ice in Joel Favreau who was also rock solid.

 

Favreau kept his team in it early and made lots of big saves from point blank range and ended up with 29 saves on the night.

 

Cole Duperreault was the only player to find the back of the net last night when he converted a beautiful pass from Jaeden Mercier on a 2 on 1 early in the third.

 

That stood up as the game winner as Duperreault would also score an empty netter with just 10 seconds remaining in the game.

 

That pleased the crowd of over 1100 who went home happy after the Bomber victory.

 

Flin Flon will try to ride the momentun into Nipawin tonight for the Hawks home opener after Nipawin lost 7 to 4 in Laronge last night.

 

This will be an 8PM, Manitoba  start time so we will be on the air at 7:45 with the Great North GM Coach's Show from the Cage.

 

Catch all the action once again on 102.9 CFAR and flinflononline.com.

 

  

Bombers Ready To Kick Off Regular Season Tonight

We are just hours away from the curtain opening on another SJHL regular season.

 

The Flin Flon Bombers are hoping to ride the wave on one of their most successful seasons in franchise history.

 

They hit last year's playoffs on a skid and seemed to be headed for an early exit in the opening round of the playoffs against the Battlefords.

 

Game three changed everything. Down 2 games to none, the fans came out in droves and turned the whole series around and the Bombers went on to win 4 straight.

 

They followed that with a upset series win against the tough Humboldt Broncos in 5  and eventually took the front running Estevan Bruins to 7 in the league final.

 

With Estevan hosting the Centennial Cup, the Bombers got a pass for finishing second and made it all the way to the Quarter Finals. They certainly proved that they belonged there with the top teams in the country.

 

Tonight it all starts over,  and 12 players remain from last year's team including the trio of Jaeden Mercier, Jaxon Martens and Cole Duperreault who will all be counted on to score. These are the top three returning scorers from last year.

 

The Bombers also bring back Lucas Fry, Reece Richmond, Cory King and Cole Tanchuk on the back end. All these players contributed last year and should be better with a year under their belts.

 

Unfotunately, this is the first time in many years that the Bombers do not have a returning goalie. Cal Schell had one of the best year's in franchise history and set a new franchise record for shut outs in a season with 7.

 

Big shoes to fill,  and Flin Flon is hoping that former Nipawin Hawk Harmon Laser Hume can be their starter and play big minutes in the absence of Schell.

 

The Bombers are hoping for big things from a couple of rookies as well in Ethan Farrow and Kenneth Marquart who will battle for the back up job.

 

Other new faces to watch this year will be Defensemen Aiden Chow and Lorenzo Bono out of Quebec. Bono can really fly and the Bombers are hoping he will be able to contibute some offense from the back end after losing Xavier Lapointe, Cole  Vardy and Rylan  Thiessen from last year.

 

A couple of forwards to keep your eye on will be Alexi Sylvestre from Quebec, Dawson Karol out of Alberta  and local product Joey Lies.

 

The Bombers will get a good test right off the start as Melfort brings in 16 players from last year's team that finished  third overall.

 

Melfort got upset by Yorkton in the first round of the playoffs last year  and are very motivated to compete for a league title this year.

 

The two teams have a rich  historic  rivalry and last year they were 4 and 4 in the head to head match ups.

 

Melfort has taken 13 out of the last 22 meetings in the last 5 years and always play the Bombers tough at the Whitney Forum.

 

Don't forget to get to the rink early tonight for a special video tribute with lots of highlights from last season at around 7:20.

 

Make sure you also have a radio or mobile device for the call of tonight's game on 102.9 CFAR and flinflononline.com. We kick things off with the Great North GM Coach's Show at 7:10.

 

 

Kodiaks Cruise To Second Straight Win

The Creighton Kodiaks made their way to Laronge to battle SMVS and put up 20 points in the first quarter enroute  to a convincing  60 to 0 victory.

 

Carson Straile led the way with three touchdowns as he continues to lead the Kodiaks offensively.

 

Other touchdowns came from Payton Pelletier, and Kieran Bonsant McInnes who is only in grade 9,  and picked up his first ever Northern Saskatchewan Football touchdown.

 

Gracie Dubinak continues to have a good season with the kicking game and added 5 converts for 10 points.

 

The Kodiaks look poised to win their fourth straight Northern title as not only are they scoring lots of points,  but have yet to give up a single point in two straight wins.

 

Creighton will improve to 2-0 and will play at home for the first time next Friday as they welcome Sandy Bay under the lights at 7.

Selects Trade For A Player In Saskatchewan

The Delisle Chiefs of the Prairie Junior Hockey League have traded  the playing rights of Larry Flett to the PBCN Selects of the Keystone Jr Hockey League for a player to be named at a later date.

 

Deal to be completed by Dec 1, 2022.

 

Flett will arrive in Flin Flon Thursday to join his new club ahead of training camp schedule for September 17-18 at the Whitney Forum.

 

Last season in the PJHL the 04 Forward scored 13 points in 33 games. Flett is a big kid and was scouted at the recent OCN Blizzard camp.

Bombers Squeek Out Shoot Out Win

It was a lot closer this time around in the battle of Northern Manitoba as the Bombers had to come from behind to beat the OCN Blizzard last night in a shoot out.

 

Flin Flon scored early on the power play when Jaeden Mercier grabbed a rebound off Chase Hamm's pad and flipped in a back hander to put the B'S up 1 to 0 just 3:31 in to the game.

 

The Bombers kept peppering the Blizzard net with lots of shots but had a tough time scoring on Chase Hamm,  who redeemed himself after a tough start on Tuesday that saw him surrender 5 goals on 5 shots.

 

OCN also seemed to look more confident and you could see that they are starting to implement some Doug Johnson systems.

 

The Blizzard would get rewarded with the next two goals with 4 year vet Riley Zimmerman tapping a puck through Laser Hume's legs to tie the game early in the second.

 

Laser Hume was traded by the Nipawin Hawks earlier in the day to give the Bombers a little more experience in goal.

 

The Blizzard would grab the lead when local product Laz Constant was able to get some room ,  streaked down the ice and fired a nice shot stick side to beat Laser Hume and put his team up 2 to 1 after 2.

 

Down a goal, the Bombers came out and continued to get lots of shots and finally got rewarded late in the third when veteran Cole Duperreault came through.

 

Duperreault fired a shot off the post and grabbed his own rebound with lots of traffic in front of the Blizzard net and Hamm down and out.

 

The rest of regulation and 3 on 3 OT solved nothing so we had to go the shoot out and the Bombers went with Jaeden Mercier and Cole Duppereault back to back.

 

Both snipers found the back of the net and Laser Hume stopped both OCN shooters and the Bombers grabbed the 3 to 2 victory.

 

The game really shouldn't of been close as the Bombers out shot OCN 41 to 15 but Hamm played well.

 

Flin Flon went 1 for 3 on the powerplay while the Blizzard were 0 for 6.

 

The Bombers finish the preseason 5 and 1 while the Blizzard went 1 and 2.

 

It now starts for real as the Bombers will get ready for the regular season which will start on Friday when the Melfort Mustangs come to town.

 

Don't forget you can pick up your season tickets at the Bomber office this Monday between 4 and 7 .

Pats Sign Stinton

Congratulations to Flin Flon's Wyatt Stinton who has been signed by the WHL'S Regina Pats.

 

Stinton was drafted by the Pats in this year's WHL Bantam Draft in the 5th round and 102nd over all .

 

Stinton has impressed the Pat's brass with a great showing at Spring Camp and got the invite to Main Camp where he was able to showcase his skills once again.

 

Wyatt played last year at the Rink Hockey Academy in Winnipeg and picked up 47 points in 30 games including 23 goals and will return there this season.

 

Head Coach John Paddock had this to say about Wyatt's play.  “His future seems bright to us, When we saw him at Spring Camp, the puck seemed to follow him around, and some guys have the knack, that wherever he goes on the ice, he gets opportunities. I think he’s going to score, that’s his game and I think by 18 and 19, he’s going to be a productive player for us.”

 

The Regina Pats are excited to welcome Wyatt to the organization and City Of Regina.

 

 

 

 

Bombers Blank Walleye 6 to 0

Another impressive showing from the Flin Flon Bombers last night as they shut out the Kam River Fighting Walleye of the SIJHL 6 to 0.

 

Cole Duperreault held the hot hand as he picked up the hat-trick and added one assist and was flying around all night long.

 

Ethan Anstey picked up 4 assists and was a threat every time he stepped on the ice.

 

Matt Egan was also a big force and scored two goals while adding an assist.

 

The other Bomber goal came from Lucas Byrne.

 

Connor Stojan and Ethan Farrow combined for 21 saves to collect the shut out.

 

The Bombers will wrap up the pre-season tonight with the second round of the battle of Northern Manitoba as the OCN Blizzard come to town.

 

OCN will try to evenge Tuesday's 10 to 4 loss at the GLMC.

Bombers Hammer Blizz

 

The first six minutes told the story last night as the Flin Flon Bombers travelled to the GLMC to battle the OCN Blizzard in the latest chapter in the battle of Northern Manitoba.

 

Flin Flon scored on their first 5 shots of the game and took a commanding 6 to 0 lead before the game was even 6 minutes old and ended up winning 10 to 4.

 

This was the Blizzard's first pre season game and only wrapped up camp on Sunday. Flin Flon was playing their fourth pre season game.

 

A tough start for Blizzard  goalie Chase Hamm who was hung out to dry for many of the early goals. 

 

I give OCN credit who played a lot better in the second and third after surrendering 6 goals in the opening period.

 

Matter of fact,  if you take away the first 6 minutes it was actually 4-4 the rest of the way.

 

The Blizzard settled down and scored earely in the second when veteran Mitch Hlady converted a pass from his brother Michael.

 

OCN got the rest of their goals from Marlen Edwards, Miguel Bouvier and John Kremer.

 

The Bomber attack was led by Jaeden Mercier who had a 4 point night including two goals.

 

The other Flin Flon goals came from Alaska's Silas Hughes who had a pair, local product Jordan Pfoh, Cheechoo Lathlin, Andrey Manov, Kylynn Olafson, Liam Cochrane and Aiden Chow.

 

Specialty teams saw the Bombers go 1 for 4 with the extra attacker while the Blizz finished up 0 for 3.

 

Ethan Farrow started for the Bombers and stopped 7 out of 8 shots while Kenneth Marquart came in later and ended up with 5 saves.

 

Chase Hamm went the distance for the Blizzard and ended up stopping 13 out of 23 shots.

 

These two teams will meet again on Friday with the venue switching to the Whitney Forum. The Bombers will face Kam River out of the SIJHL on Thursday at the forum with puck drop at 7:30.

submitted by PBCN Selects

 

PBCN commit to two 2004 born players

Justin Halcrow from Pelican Narrows has signed a player commitment with the Selects for their ? inaugural season. Justin Halcrow a 6’2” Forward played for the High Prairie Red wings in the GMHL. “Halcrow is a big body and he’s getting his groove going skating the past 3 weeks here at conditioning. I expected him to kill penalties and add secondary scoring for our team this year. With players like Justin we are going to be hard to play against, commented Head Coach Gatlin Church.

 

The Selects also committed to 18 year old Forward Shayden Custer. Custer is from Pelican Narrows Sk and played most of his minor hockey in Flin Flon. Church had this to say regarding the signing, “ Shayden is a small speedy forward who we hope can provide secondary scoring for us this season. He’s a good hockey player and an even better individual, we are very happy to add Shayden to our organization. 

 

The Selects host their Training Camp September 17th and 18th in Flin Flon.

Lies Traded To Blades

Saskatoon, SK – The Saskatoon Blades are pleased to announce the acquisition of forward Justin Lies, from the Vancouver Giants, in exchange for forward Kyren Gronick and a 2nd round pick in the 2025 WHL Prospects Draft.

 

Lies, originally from Flin Flon, MB, collected 16 points (8G-8A) and 42 PIM in 50 games for the Giants during the 2021-22 WHL season, while adding 3 points (1G-2A) in 12 playoff games last year.

 

“Justin is the exact type of player we’ve been coveting over the last year to help add size, ability and tenacity to our forward group,” commented Blades President and General Manager Colin Priestner.

 

The power forward, who stands 6’2” and weighs 205lbs, attended Las Vegas Golden Knights Rookie Camp in July.

 

“He is very difficult to play against and creates room for his linemates every shift,” continued Priestner. “We think he brings an element that was missing from our team with his style of play and his competitiveness.”

 

The Saskatoon Blades would like to thank Kyren Gronick for his service to the team and wish him the best in Vancouver with the Giants.
