The 2nd period would be dominated by the Klippers but once again Isaiah Plett came up very solid in the Mils net and then Chris Stovall would choose to shoot on a 2 on 1 and put it top shelf on Tyrell King to give the Mils a 2-1 lead.

The Mils continue to lead by a goal, until just over 7 minutes left in the 3rd and that's when Stefan Seel would bang one home to even it up at 2 apiece.

The Mils would get their first 2 goal lead of the hockey game as Brady Constant would bang home a rebound for his 3rd of the year to make it 3-1.

The Swan Valley Stampeders allowed 4 goals in the 2nd period and that was enough as they fell 5-3 to the Virden Oil Capitals.

CJHL Implements New Fighting Rule

***Release from

The Canadian Junior Hockey League (CJHL) Board of Directors has overwhelmingly voted to support an automatic game misconduct for fighting (the one-fight rule) and new national minimum discipline guidelines.
"The co-operation among our leagues and partners for standardized fighting rules and consistent discipline guidelines across all Junior A leagues is a significant step in the continuing development and evolution of the CJHL and Junior A hockey in Canada," said CJHL President Kirk Lamb. "We will work closely with our stakeholders and key partners, such as Hockey Canada and provincial branches, on bringing these endorsements forward for consideration."
One-Fight Rule Endorsed as National Standard
The CJHL supports the automatic game misconduct penalty for fighting beginning with the 2014-2015 season. The automatic game misconduct penalty, commonly known as the 'one-fight rule', results in a 5-minute major as well as the immediate ejection of the player from the game. Five CJHL leagues - SIJHL, NOJHL, OJHL, CCHL and LHJAAAQ - are currently using this rule. In five other CJHL leagues - BCHL, AJHL, SJHL, MJHL and MHL - a player's first fighting penalty results in the same 5-minute major penalty, but does not carry with it in an automatic ejection from the game. In those leagues, the automatic game ejection occurs after a player's second fight in the same game. A move to a national rule for fighting would see all 10 CJHL leagues operate under the same automatic game misconduct penalty for fighting.
Junior A Supplement Supported as National Supplemental Discipline Guidelines
In addition to supporting a game misconduct penalty for fighting, the CJHL has overwhelming endorsed in principle a comprehensive set of minimum discipline guidelines based on a 4-year pilot project called the Junior A Supplement. The Junior A Supplement was designed and implemented by the BCHL, AJHL, SJHL, MJHL and MHL, in partnership with Hockey Canada.
"The Junior A Supplement has been an invaluable game management tool," said BCHL Commissioner John Grisdale. "We have experienced a significant change in the culture of our game and player behavior and are enjoying the benefits of enhanced communication and education among players, coaches and officials."
The Junior A Supplement is an innovative set of regulations involving both existing playing rules that have been strengthened or expanded, as well as the creation of new penalties for certain actions and player behavior. The key principles of the Junior A Supplement are:
  • establishing common values relating to player, coach and team behavior
  • suspension thresholds for multiple offenders of various infractions
  • increasing suspensions for subsequent infractions beyond the suspension threshold
  • coach and team accountability, such as fines and suspensions, for the actions of their players
  • education of players, coaches and officials about the rules and values of the Junior A Supplement
"The Junior A Supplement provides a consistent supplemental discipline guidelines across the country and arms Junior A leagues with additional tools to help manage many aspects of our game," said CCHL Commissioner Kevin Abrams. "As a league dedicated to the development of student-athletes, we continuously evaluate new rules and regulations to make the game more enjoyable and safer for our players and more exciting and entertaining for our fans."

Terriers' 3 game win streak snapped by Broncos

The Yorkton Terriers had their 3 game winning streak snapped as they fell 1-0 to the Humboldt Broncos on Tuesday night. 

The first period ended scoreless with both teams having some great chances especially the Terriers who had 3 power play chances but they couldn't convert.

The 2nd period would start similar to the opening frame as both teams would go back and forth but half way thru the middle frame it would be the Humboldt
 Broncos converting on the power play as Gray Marr would take a nice feed in the slot and put it top shelf on Kale Thomson for his first of the season to give the Broncos a 1-0 lead.

In the third, it would be by far the Terriers  best period of the 3 as they peppered Ryland Pashovitz with shot after shot but like the previous two periods couldn't get anything past the Humboldt Goalie.

Pashovitz would stopped all 30 shots he faced for his 2nd shutout of the season while Kale Thomson was once again very solid in the Terriers net stopping 32 of 33 shots in a losing cause. 

The Terriers will continue their 7 games on the road on Friday when they visit the Battlefords North Stars.

Flanagan Plays Hero as Stamps storm back to beat Neepawa 4-3

The Swan Valley Stampeders came back from an early 3-0 deficit to score 4 unanswered goals and beat the Neepawa Natives 4-3.

The 1st period was one to forget for the Stamps as they would go down 3-0 early as Riley Hillis, Kyle McDonald and Sam Briscoe would all get one past Cole Holowenko. But SV would get one back just as time was gonna expire as Max Provencher would a fortunate bounce off a stanchion and put it in for his 7th goal of the season with only 3 seconds left to make it 3-1 Neepawa after 1 period.

The middle frame would start off a little bit better for the Stampeders and they would get rewarded for it as Mitch Deacon would put a nice wrister top shelf on a nice feed from Dylan Favell in the slot to make it a 3-2 Stamps deficit only after 40 minutes. 

The last frame would be a back and forth affair with both teams having their fair share of chances and it would remain 3-2 until the Stamps would tie it up at 3 with just 42 seconds left as Max Flanagan would scoop up a loose puck and go top shelf on Michael Gudmandson for his 11th marker of the year to tied it up at 3-3 to force OT.

Then in overtime it would yet again be Flanagan with the heroics as he would make the right decision and elect to shoot on a 2 on 1 and would go low glove on the Neepawa goalie for his 2nd of night and 12th of season to give the Stamps a big 4-3 victory. 

Cole Holowenko stopped 36 shots for the win while Michael Gudmandson stopped 42 shots in a losing cause.

Bomber forwards' Cam Blair & Cole McCaig opened the scoring with 2 goals mid way through the 1st period as they give the Bombers an early 2-0 lead.

It was more of the same in the middle frame as the Bombers responded with 3 more goals which included Brett Boehm notching 2 goals and 1 assist the period, while Landon Hiebert replied with the other goal for the Bombers.

In the 3rd the Mils would come out with a little bounce and they would be credited with it shorthanded as Kelvin Walz would notch his 2nd of the season to cut the Bomber lead to four. But the Bombers would reply with another marker as Erik Pederson would notch his 1st of the season to give the Bombers once again a 5 goal lead. But the Mils would try and make a game of it as they would get two quick goals by Colin Mospanchuk and Tyson Predinchuk would make it a 6-3 Bomber lead. But the Bombers would ice it with their 7th goal as McCaig would get his 2nd of the night, that WANs before the Mils would get the last marker of the game in the final minute as Alec Brandrup would continue his hot play from the backend, but it wasn't enough as the Mils fell 7-4 to the Bombers.

Stamps lose to Blizzard for 2nd straight night.

The Swan Valley Stampeders fell in defeat to the OCN Blizzard for the 2nd straight night as the Stamps lost 5-4 at home tot OCN.

The Stamps controlled most of the start of the 1st period that was until the 11:26 mark of the period when Damien Kulynych scored a powerplay goal for the Blizz to get them a early 1-0 lead. But with just 50 seconds left in the first frame the Stamps would get their own powerplay goal as Max Provencher would bang home a rebound in the slot to make it 1-1 after 1 period of play.

The Stamps would feed off that late girl in the 1st, with 2nd of the game just 20 seconds into the 2nd period as Bo Sigurson would pick up a loose puck and throw it five-hole on rookie goalie Brody Clays to make it 2-1 Stamps. Then 10:29 later the Stamps would get themselves a 2 goal lead when MJHL reigning Player of the Month, and leading scorer Mitch Deacon would pick the far side on Claeys for league leading 20th point to give SV a 3-1 lead. But that 2 goal would last until the 14:38 mark as Edward Bayer would get his 3rd goal in as many games, and the 2nd PP goal of the night for OCN to cut the Stamps lead within 1 after 40 minutes of play.

It would be another quick start to the 3rd period, but this time it would come from the OCN Blizzard as Tyler Grove would beat Cole Holowenko to tie it up at 3-3. The Blizzard would once again regain their one goal lead at 7:29 of the first as Tyler Grove would get his 2nd goal of the night to make it 4-3 Blizzard lead until 17 seconds later as Braydon McDonald would tip home the tying goal and it was 4-4. It was all tied up until the 12:29 mark of the last frame and yet again it would another OCN PP goal and again it would Kulynych getting it as he beat Holowenko from a weird angle to give him the game winner and 5-4 OCN victory.

Brody Claeys stopped 43 of 47 shots for his 1st MJHL win for OCN, while Cole Holowenko stopped 25 shots in a losing cause.

The Stamps would return to action this weekend with 2 more home games, Saturday night hosting the Winkler Flyers at 7:30 MB, before entertaining the Steinbach Pistons for a 4PM MB time afternoon affair on Sunday afternoon.

Yorkton loses a Hockey Legend

The Yorkton sporting and hockey world is in mourning after losing a legend as Metro Prystai has passed away at the age of 85 years old. The Yorkton native played more than 670 games over his 11 year NHL career that was played with 2 teams the Detroit Red Wings (2 stints), and the Chicago Blackhawks.

Prystai scored 151 goals and 179 assists over his NHL career that went from 1947-1958. Metro also was on 2 Stanley Cup winning Red Wings teams in 1952 & 1954. In '52, Metro scored the game winning goal in overtime and also added an assist to help the Wings to sweep the Montreal Canadiens and to defeat the defending Stanley Cup champion Toronto Maple Leafs.

This extremely talented Yorkton Saskatchewan boy left his humble beginnings to play junior hockey with the Moose Jaw Canucks in 1943. He became a sports icon in the community where they named him "Marvelous Metro". In his final season with Moose Jaw he got 32 goals and 39 assists in 22 games
(from, a website developed by local author Frank Block who is almost complete a book about the hockey legend.)

Norrish Twins commit to be Tigers Next Season


(From the Yorkton Terriers) 

The Yorkton Terriers are very pleased to announce that twenty year-old defensemen Brady (pictured bottom) and Chase Norrish (pictured top) have committed to play Division I NCAA college hockey for the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) Tigers beginning in the fall of 2014. Located in Rochester, New York, RIT has an enrollment of over 18,000 students. The Tigers men’s hockey program plays in the Atlantic Hockey Conference at the NCAA Division I level. A relatively new program at the Division 1 level, RIT men’s hockey made the jump to from Division III to Division I in 2005. By 2010, the Tigers program grabbed national attention when they advanced to the NCAA Frozen Four tournament in Detroit, Michigan. Next season, the Tigers will be moving into a new 4,200 seat arena located on campus.
The exposure that the Norrish twins received at the recently completed SJHL Showcase in Warman certainly helped both young men to solidify their educational and hockey futures. 
Prior to joining the Yorkton Terriers program, the Norrish brothers played one season with the Beardys Blackhawks of the Saskatchewan AAA Midget League. Both players were called up as Affiliate Players with the Terriers before making the move to Yorkton full time in the fall of 2011.
The Norrish brothers first season with the Terriers in 2011-12 saw both players post identical stats, playing in 56 games, scoring 6-goals and adding 11-assists. They also shared the Terriers Rookie of the Year award.
After logging key minutes and playing in all situations as rookies the Norrish’s really saw their game take off to a whole new level in the 2012-13 season and capped it off with an SJHL League Championship.  Before their second season with the Terriers, both players were named as Assistant Captains for the hockey club. In 54-regular season games Chase put up 7 goals to go along with 15 assists. He would also add 7 more assists in 17 playoff games. Chase was also recognized as the SJHL Defenseman of the Week on three different occasions while also being named the Terriers Unsung Hero for the season.
Brady’s second season with the Terriers was an exceptional one. He finished the regular season with 32 points in 52 games played. In 17-playoff games he added 11 points while sharing the SJHL playoff MVP. At the Western Canada Cup in Nanaimo, BC Brady was named as the tournament’s Top Defenseman. He was also named the SJHL Defenseman of the Week four separate times, the leagues Defenseman of the Month once and capped off a memorable 2012-13 season by being named the Yorkton Terriers MVP.
The entire Yorkton Terriers organization wishes to congratulate Brady and Chase on achieving their goal of advancing to play hockey at the NCAA Division I level and getting a quality education at a fine institution like RIT.
Below, Brady Norrish quickly chats about his commitment along with brother Chase to RIT
