Construction behind schedule

Surprise surprise, the renovations for the Weyburn Colosseum are falling further behind schedule. I know it is hard to get these things underway but let's move already.

Last night at City Council, it was stated that the current time line for construction is 'at least' two months behind schedule. During the meeting, Council approved the option for Cardinal Construction to do a cost estimate on the South Dressing Room addition and corresponding second floor.

Cardinal Construction will provide the City of Weyburn up to date costing of the project (no tendering), breakdown of labor, materials and subcontractors for a fee of $5,750. Hopefully now the construction can get underway with this decision.

*Also they would like to let everyone know that the 'Take A Seat' campaign is still underway. 150 seats have been sold right now to people and businesses around the community If you are interested in purchasing a seat you can call City Hall.

That's all for now....

Let's get Dwight in The Hockey News!

Well last week I got a return email from Edward Fraser, editor of ‘The Hockey News’. Unfortuantely it wasn’t good news. I suggested that someone on the staff think about doing up an article on Dwight McMillan and all the years he has put in with the Weyburn Red Wings and Junior Hockey in general.

I said I can get all the contact information they would need as well as former player contacts as well but they kindly said they would pass for now, but they would keep the story in mind.... so I think some of the fans should contact Edward and kindly tell him all of the things Dwight has done for the team, the league and the community. THN would be great exposure for the Junior A Ranks, Dwight McMillan and the Weyburn Red Wings

To contact Edward you can email him at or call 416-227-8244

After a rougher road than expected, the Humboldt Broncos are right where everyone thought they would be – into the semi-finals at the 2008 RBC Cup.

The Schroeder brothers – Scott and Steven – combined for five points as the Broncos clinched a spot in the final four of the National Junior A Championship with a 4-1 win over the Weeks Crushers on Thursday afternoon in the final round robin game for both.

Needing a win over the winless Oakville Blades to wrap up a spot on Wednesday, the Broncos turned in an uncharacteristically poor defensive performance, falling 7-6 to the Central Region champions.

They made sure there would be no repeat on Thursday, holding the Crushers to just 26 shots on goal, while they directed 46 towards Weeks goaltender Alexandre Quessy.

After spending much of the opening 10 minutes in the Weeks zone, the Broncos were finally rewarded when Steven Schroeder – Humboldt’s player of the game – picked up a loose puck off the end boards and snuck a shot past Quessy.

Knowing that a win would clinch a semi-final spot for them, and eliminate the Broncos, the Crushers fought back, and pulled even on the powerplay less than five minutes later, as a point shot from captain Scott Lavigne – Weeks’ player of the game – hit a Humboldt defender on the way in and deflected past netminder Taylor Nelson.

Quessy stood tall in the first period, stopping 19 of the 20 shots he faced to keep the game close, but the floodgates opened in the middle frame.

Mitchell Stretch gave the Broncos the lead for good just 37 seconds after the period’s opening face-off, rifling a point shot over the shoulder of Quessy, and Steven Schroeder and Matthew Kirzinger added goals in a period dominated by the West Region champions, who outshot Weeks 18-4 in the period.

Weeks pressured the Broncos in the final 20 minutes, outshooting Humboldt 12-8, but could not get a puck past Nelson, and now must wait for the outcome of tonight’s Camrose/Oakville game to determine their playoff fate.

If Oakville wins, the Crushers will watch the remainder of the tournament from the sidelines – but a Camrose win puts Weeks into the semi-finals by virtue of their overtime win over the Blades on Monday night.

New link...

If you want to keep up to date on Stephen Simms and Kyle Haines next season, I have added a link the the Lake Superior State University Blog!

It is on the link list and should be at the bottom right hand side of the blog if you are using something other than Internet Explorer (which you should be). For some reason the blog shows up in two columns in Internet Explorer so if you are using it, the link should be near the very bottom of the left side.

WHL Bantam Draft is almost here!

<----- Weyburn's Brent Benson has been featured in The Hockey News and is expected to go in the top 5 during the WHL Bantam Draft.

The WHL Bantam Draft is on Thursday, May 1. A number of Weyburn Crescent Point Wings have a chance to get selected in this year's draft. They are Brent Benson, Nate Ferris(former Milestone resident..thatta boy), Reid Jackson, Carter Struthers and Garett Walbaum.

Benson is expected to be one of the top five picks and could be taken first overall, but just being selected will be huge for any of these boys.

Other names of interest around the area are Blaine Thomson of Assiniboia who played in Notre Dame, Ryan Murray of White City who played Pee Wee Hockey in Weyburn, Codi Sjostrand of Midale and Brandon McClarty of Ceylon.

Best of luck to all of the boys in the draft.
