Zone Champions Again

 

Hapnot Collegiate continues to dominate soccer in Northern Manitoba and both the Kings and Queens were able to defend their Zone titles.

 

Both Hapnot squads came into the weekend as the top ranked teams  and neither disappointed with dominant performances.

 

The Kings reeled off wins over Cranberry, Coss Lake and Norway House in the round robin out scoring the opposition 23 to 0.

 

They would meet a good Moose Lake team in the final and won a nail biter 1 to 0.

 

The Queens beat The Pas, Cross Lake and Norway House by a combined score of 15 to 0.

 

The Queens also played Moose Lake in the final and won 3 to 0.

 

Pretty impressive as both the Hapnot squads didn't allow a single goal in the tournament.

 

Next up will be Provincials coming up in Dauphin the weekend of October the 12th to the 14th.

Home And Home With Laronge

The Flin Flon Bombers and Laronge Ice Wolves will rekindle their rivalry with a home and home this weekend.

 

The Wolves make their way to the Whitney Forum tonight after opening the season with a loss to Melfort and a 3 to 2 shoot out win over Nipawin.

 

Flin Flon beat the Hawks on opening night and followed that up with a OT loss to the Mustangs in their home opener on Sayurday.

 

Tonight the Bombers will have a boost with the recent addition of Ashton Paul, who they picked up from the Blizzard earlier this week. Paul has been practising with the team all week and will make his Bombers debut tonight.

 

These Sherwood Division matchup's are especially important as you only play teams in your division 6 times, so you really have to take advantage of the points when you can get them.

 

Flin Flon took the season series 4-1-1 last year but points are always tough to come by and the Wolves have played quite well in Flin Flon through out the years. The Wolves are 5-8 in Flin Flon in the last 13 meetings.

 

Laronge is led offensively by Mason Bueckert, Dylan Handel, William Forsberg and Jacob Cossette who have combined for 10 points in the first two games.

 

A healthy Parker Layton on the back end should help too.

 

The top Flin Flon guns have had a slow start to the season and the top line of Jacob Vockler, Justin Lies and Alexi Sylvestre have not been able to muster a single point in the first two games. The addidtion of Ashton Paul should help a lot especially with the powerplay which is 0 for 13 to start the season.

 

The Wolves powerplay is slightly better at 2 for 13.

 

No broadcast of tonight's game on radio but we head to Laronge tomorrow for the re-match which is Truith and Reconcilliation Day.

 

Join us for the Great Norh GM Coach's Show at 8:10, MB time followed by puck drop at 8:30.

 

The Bombers will be wearing special orange jerseys to commemorate Truith and Reconciliation Day for their game tonight.

He scored a pair of goals in a 5 to 3 win over the Nipawin Hawks on Friday and scored the Bomber's only goal in a OT loss to Melfort on Saturday.

Bombers Trade For Offensive Forward

After starting the season 1-0-1, the Flin Flon Bombers announced a major trade today that they have picked up the offensive gifted Ashton Paul from the Blizzard of the MJHL.

 

Paul was just released from Wenatchee of the WHL, and the Blizzard had his junior A  rights which they flipped to the Bombers for a PDF.

 

Paul could be just what the Bombers need as he was pretty much a point a game player in the MJHL with 56 points in 57 games last year including 26 goals.

 

He should also help stabilize the powerplay which is 0 for 13 to start the season.

 

Head Coach and GM, Mike Reagan  says this is a major pickup. " We are excited about it for many different reasons. Ashton is a kid that I have known through the conditioning camp at the hockey school, he is a northern boy who understands what our organization is all about and the history and tradition. He brings size, skill, he can skate , it is an exciting time for us. I know Ashton has wanted to be a part of this for some time , it is a good marriage."

 

Paul is in town and will skate with the team today and will be in iniform against Laronge this weekend.

Selects Finish 1-2 on Saskatchewan Pre Season Tour

The PBCN Selects travelled to Saskatchewan this past weekend to play three games Thursday through Saturday to help get ready for the start of the Keystone Junior B regular season.

 

The Selects dropped an 11 to 1 decision to the Saskatoon Royals on Thursday then lost 6 to 1 to Carrot River on Friday despite out shooting them 44 to 29.

 

Saturday the Selects found their groove beating Onion Lake 5 to 1.

 

Kadin Eetuk led the way with a pair of goals.Maddox Dominey, Kaden Joanis and Owen Angootealuk  also found the back of the net.

 

The Selects will now get ready for the start of the regular season which will start this weekend.

 

PBCN will host Nelson House in their home opener on Saturday. It is also National Reconcilliation Day and they would like everybody in attendance to wear orange.

 

Puck drop is 7:30.

Bombers Grab 3 Out Of 4 Points

 

The SJHL opening weekend has come and gone and the Flin Flon Bombers were able to take 3 out of 4 points against a pair of Sherwood Division rivals.

 

On Friday the Bombers were able to beat a hot goalie Damon Cunningham with three goals in a 56 second span in the second period picking up the 5 to 3 win against the Nipawin Hawks.

 

The Bombers handilly out shot Nipawin 49 to 20 and without Cunningham the score should of been a lot worse.

 

It was quite the weekend for Northville Minnesota's Trevor Stenglein who potted three goals in the first two game including a pair in the win over Nipawin on Friday.

 

Joey Lies, Matt Egan and Aiden Chow who picked up his first ever SJHL goal scored the other goals. Chow's goal stood as the game winner, not bad for his  first junior goal.

 

Saturday, the Bombers hosted the Melfort Mustangs.

 

Melfort came in a played a typical Trevor Blevins game limiting the Bomber offensive chances and did a really good job keeping most of their shots to the outside.

 

Trevor Stenglein was able to score the Maroon and White's only goal. On a rare Mustang mistake, Stenglein got behind the defense and went in alone to beat James Venne with a shot low glove hand and gave Flin Flon the 1 to 0 lead mid way through the second.

 

Melfort answered just 25 seconds into the third when Ryan Duguay beat Harmon Laser Hume with a quick wrist shot.

 

That score would hold up the rest of the way through regulation and we would need overtime.

 

The Bombers won the opening face off and got the puck in the Mustang zone but turned the puck over which resulted in a 2 on 1 the other way.

 

The very talented Zac Somers flipped  a perfect pass to Aidyn Hutchinson who beat Laser Hume five hole just 15 seconds into ot.

 

This quieted a very large Whitney Forum crowd as the Mustangs will start the season at 2-0.

 

The Bombers despite not playing one of their better  games will take the point and start the year 1-0-1.

 

Some early concerns may be the powerplay going 0 for 13 in the first two games and the top line of Vockler, Sylvestre and Justin Lies who  haven't picked up a single point.

 

The good news is it early and Head Coach and GM, Mike Reagan feels it is just a matter of time before they start to gel.

 

Next up will be a home and home against another Sherwood rival in the Laronge Ice Wolves. Laronge comes to town on Friday and the Bombers will return the favour on Saturday.

 

We will broadcast Saturday's game on 102.9 CFAR and flinflononline.com beginning with the Great North GM Coach's Show at 8:15 MB time.

 

 

 

Bombers Kick Off The Regular Season In Nipawin Tonight

The long wait is over and it's time to get down to business as the SJHL regular season will begin tonight with 5 games including the Flin Flon Bombers off to the Cage to face the Nipawin Hawks.

 

Both teams are coming off good seasons with the Bombers finishing the year at 37-15-2-2 which was the best record in the Sherwood Division. Flin Flon would carry the success into the post season making it to the league final for the fourth time in 6 years.

 

Nipawin also made the playoffs under new bench boss Tad Kozun finishing the year at 26-24-5-1 and lost out to the Humboldt Broncos in the first round of the playoffs.

 

Kozun mentioned after the season that they are happy to get some playoff experience and feel poised to be one of the top 6 clubs in the league this year.

 

They certainly have a very good forward group returning with Braxton Buchberger, Joel Mabin, Maguire Ratzlaff and Finley Radloff all back in a Hawks uniform. Scoring goals should not be a problem

 

They did lose starting goalie Jackson Fellner who won 18 games last year and decided to go to school. They feel confident with Damon Cunningham who started all 5 playoff games and will be  the starter coming into tonight.

 

Flin Flon has a good forward group also led by returnee's Jacob Vockler,Alexi Sylvestre and Kylynn Olafson. The addition of home town product Justin Lies from the WHL will be fun to watch as well.

 

The Bombers will bring back both goalies including former Hawk, Harmon Laser Hume who was one of the top netminders in the league last year. Harmon was amongst the league leaders in wins with 28, save %at .913 and GAA at 2.57.

 

To say the Bombers haven't had their way with Nipawin the last few seasons would be a huge under statement. After losing the season opener in Nipawin last year, Flin Flon reeled off 5 straight wins. 

 

The Bombers are 8-2 against the Hawks in their last 10 meetings and are 16-4 in the head to head matchups in the last 5 years.

 

Don't forget to listen in for all the action tonight as we hit the air with our first installment of Creighton Furniture Flin Flon Bomber Hockey from the Cage with the Great North GM Coach's Show at 7:40 and puck drop at 8.

 

Flin Flon will return for the home opener on Saturday when the Melfort Mustangs make their way to town. We are on the air at 7:10, with drop of the puck at 7:30.

 

Northland Ford will be hosting a tailgate party before the game so make your way down to the Whitney Forum parking lot for face painting, a beer garden, prizes, free hot dogs and drinks and there will also be a skate with the team after the game.

 

See you at the rink this weekend.

Kodiaks Win

It was a successful home opener for the Creighton Kodiaks who hosted the Rosthern Longhorns yesterday at the Creighton field.

 

This was Creighton's first official game in Conference 4 of the Saskatchewan 6 Man Football League.

 

Creighton was able to score a touchdown on their second set of downs and cruised to a 40 to 12 win in front of a crowd of well over 300 people.

 

Payton Pelltier had a great afternoon scoring four touchdowns including one run of 90 yards. Quintan Lycan scored the other touchdown on an interception return.

 

Both thse players are in grade 10 and look to have impressive futures with this program.

 

The Kodiaks also played good defensively and Rosthern was held in check and had trouble moving the ball.

 

Head Coach Ryan Karakochuk had this to say after yesterday's win. " When you prepare very well sometimes you get the results and I feel that's what happened. In our exhibition game against Shellbrook I felt we were unprepared and the score indicated it. I truly believe the guys bought in to what we were telling them and they studied. We put the work in on the field and the results came. It feels very good and it is the first win we have ever had against a south team. Saying that we have to get back to work and prepare for next week."

 

Creighton will hit the road and travel to Hague for their next game next Thursday, then get a bye the following week.

 

Next game at the Creighton Field will be on Thursday October the 5th vs Wakaw.

Bombers Wrap Up Pre Season With A Win

The Flin Flon Bombers dressed mostly vets and it showed as they doubled up on the Laronge Ice Wolves 4 to 2 last night at the Whitney Forum.

 

New comer Bailry Ewonus who has looked good since coming over from the AJHL, opened up the scoring just 4:36 into the opening period.

 

Veteran blue liner  Rylan Silzer would tie the game on the power play for the Wolves when he snuck a shot in from the blue line in front of a crowded Bomber net.

 

Jacob Vockler continues to have a great pre season and put the Bombers ahead late in the first with his third of the pre-season.

 

Alexi Sylvestre would then re-direct a puck past Logan Abric late in the second which would stand up as the game winner on the powerplay.

 

Vockler would get his second of the night for a little insurance late in the third and ends the pre season with 4 goals.The other Laronge goal came from new comer Payton Hu.

 

It was another powerplay goal and the Wolves would finish up 2 for 4. Flin Flon went 1 for 4.

 

Harmon Laser Hume went the distance in net for the Bombers and stopped 28 out of 30. Laronge went with two goalies including returning goalie from last year, Logan Abric and Karl Soneff who combined for 36 saves on 40 shots.

 

Flin Flon will finish the pre-season at 4-1 and will now prepare for the regular season which will open up next weekend. The Bombers kick off the season in Nipawin on Friday and host the Melfort Mustangs in their home opener on Saturday.

The Flin Flon Bombers are happy to announce the acquisition of ’04 Forward, Anthony Piccininno, via trade for a Player Development Fee from the North York Rangers of the OJHL.

 

The Toronto, Ontario product was selected 16th overall in the 2021 OHL U-18 Priority Selection Draft by the Erie Otters.

Selects Pull Off Big Deal Heading Into The Season

courtesy of pbcn selects

 

The PBCN Selects have traded 2002 Forward Dwayne McKenzie to the OCN Storm.

 

The Select receive the playing Rights of 2003 Forward Keilan Holland. Holland played 48 regular season games in the MJHL with both the Winnipeg Blues and OCN Blizzard. Last season Holland won the Central Canadian championship with ?the Storm.

 

The Selects also acquired the Junior B Rights to 2004 Forward Harlene Jacobson. Jacobson, a Cranberry Portage native who played minor hockey in Flin Flon scored 62 points last season for the Storm while helping them finish first during the regular season and ultimately winning the Central Canadian Championship.

 

Jacobson is currently playing with The Blizzard in the MJHL which is the Selects Jr A affiliate.

 

“We feel extremely satisfied with this deal, we thank Dwayne for his contributions to our program as he was the franchise’s first ever player signed. As we prepare for the season, our goals and his goals no longer similar, we look forward to the opportunity of adding two talented hard working individuals to our lineup.” -Gatlin Church

Bombers Light Up Bliz

With redemption on their minds, the Flin Flon Bombers looked like a totally different team last night rolling over the OCN Blizzard 7 to 1.

 

The Maroon and White dressed a lot more veterans last night and it showed as they dominated last night's game from start to finish.

 

It took all of 32 seconds for Alexi Sylvestre to find the back of the net and Flin Flon poured it on for the rest of the night firing 48 shots at the Blizzard tandem of Loic Morin and Jack Osmond.

 

I thought both goalies played pretty good and the score could of been worse if these guys didn't hold the fort.

 

Noah Houle led the way with a pair of goals with singles coming from Jacob Vockler, Trevor Stenglein, David Ander and local product Ryder Mucha.

 

Marlin Edwards had the lobe goal for the Blizzard.

 

Ryan Bain started the game for Flin Flon and was perfect stopping all 10 shots in his direction. He gave way to Harmon Laser Hume who came in at the mid way point of the game and gave up one goal on 7 shots.

 

The Bombers will even their pre season record at 1-1 and avenge their 4 to 3 loss against the Blizzard in The Pas on Tuesday.

 

No rest for the Maroon and White Express who make their way to Laronge for a pre season encounter with the Wolves tonight at 8:30 MB time.

Lies Comes Back Home to Play for Bombers

The Flin Flon Bombers are proud to announce the signing of Flin Flon local, ’03 Forward, Justin Lies, from the Saskatoon Blades of the WHL.

 

Being born and raised in Flin Flon, Lies played peewee and minor hockey for his hometown. In 2015, Lies, made the Norman Wolves U15 AAA out of Thompson, Manitoba, where he played for 2 seasons, tallying 40 goals and 23 assists in 38 games played. Following his time with the Wolves, his skill landed him a spot on the Rink Hockey Academy U16 Team out of Winnipeg, Manitoba for the 2018/19 season. In one season, Lies put up 17 goals and 16 assists for a total of 33 points in 38 games.

 

In 2019, Lies was selected with the 12th pick in the third round by the Vancouver Giants in the WHL Bantam Draft. During this same time, Lies was also selected to represent Team Manitoba in the Canada Winter Games, playing in 6 games, he scored one goal and claimed 5th place in the tournament.

 

From 2019 to 2022, Lies played in 132 games for the Vancouver Giants. During his time with the Giants, he put up 13 goals, 20 assists for a total of 33 points. Last season, Lies was traded to the Saskatoon Blades, where he had his most successful season in his WHL career. Throughout the 2022/23 regular season and playoffs, Lies scored 12 goals and tallied 15 assists for 27 points in 71 games with the Blades.

 

This year, Lies has decided to return to his hometown and finish his Junior career alongside his brother, Joey, and with the team he watched growing up as a kid. Coming in at 6’1, 205 lbs, Lies is a big and strong Power Forward with exceptional skating ability and an elite shot. Lies will be a huge addition to the Bombers front end this season, not only with his skill set but with his experience and leadership abilities.

 

“We are obviously very excited to add Justin for so many reasons. Not only is he a great player and will make us a better team, but it’s been a long time since we have two local brothers on the Bombers. This is a special time for our fans to have Joey and Justin playing for the Bombers together. There are a lot of young kids that look up to these two. As a Flin Floner, I’m proud to have these two representing our great community.” Head Coach/GM – Mike Reagan

 

The Flin Flon Bombers and their fans are very excited to have Lies back in town and can’t wait to see the difference he will make not only on the ice, but in the community as well.

Blizzard Take Round One In Battle Of Northern Manitoba

The first round of the Battle of Northern Manitoba went down last night at the refurbished Roy H Johnston Arena as the Pas Blizzard took on the Flin Flon Bombers .

 

The Blizzard got the best of their counter parts from the SJHL, coming back from a two goal deficit to stun the Bombers 4 to 3.

 

Flin Flon jumped out to a 2 to 0 lead in the first period courtesy of top prospects Koen Senft and Jack Bechard.

 

After a shaky first period, the Blizzard were able to cash in on some chances and the pride of Thompson, Brady Krentz was able to find the back of the net twice including a power play goal late in the frame.

 

Krentz was able to re-direct a shot past Bomber goalie Ryan Bain with just three seconds remaining in the period and gave the Blizzard some big momentum coming out for the third.

 

The Blizzard kept coming and Isaac Tomchak gave them their first lead of the night when he beat Bain with a nice snap shot off the post and in, just over four minutes into the final period.

 

Flin Flon would answer when local product Ryder Mucha capitalized on a Blizzard give away in front of their own net,  and Mucha put a nice shot over the Shoulder of Blizzard goalie Loic Morin.

 

The game remained tied and looked like it might be headed to over time, but the Bombers had a major blunder at their blue line and veteran defenseman Emilien Charron grabbed the puck and raced down the ice firing a shot low blocker on Ryan Bain with just 29 seconds left in regulation.
