Wolverines; Stampeders kick-off 2019/20 MJHL season with victories 

The Swan Valley Stampeders opened up their 2019/20 MJHL season on a winning note on Friday night as they doubled up the Dauphin Kings 6-3 at the Centennial Arena in Swan River.

After a 1st period that the Stamps played pretty well, it was the visiting Kings that got the fortunate break to strike first as Cole DeKonick's long point shot would go off a leg in the high slot and go right back-door to 18 year old Nakodan Greyeyes who made no mistake to get the only goal of the 1st.

Shots after 1 were 14-7 for Swan.

The Stampeders would even it up 2:33 into the middle frame as 19 year old Nathan Carl would nab his 1st as a Stamp after taking a nice feed from Carter Cockburn. They would then grab their first lead of the night as 20 year old Quebec product Tommy Cardinal buried his 1st after a nifty feed from Luke Beerman to make it a 2-1 game. But the Kings would respond as after a big rebound, Leaam Tivers would grab it and beat a sprawled out Michael Davis to make it 2-2. Leyson Coleman who was named Captain of the Stamps earlier in the day would regain his team their one goal lead by taking a dish from Josh Maucieri (pictured above)  and sniping it home. Cardinal would add his 2nd of the period late to help his team take a 4-2 advantage after 40 minutes of play.

After some great chances earlier in the game on the powerplay, they would finally convert on the PP as newcomer Frazer Dodd would re-direct a nice pass from Josh Maucieri again to make it a 5-2 game just 4:57 into the 3rd. But just under a minute later, Nakodan Greyeyes would add his second of the night to make it a one goal once again. But some insurance would be added late, as while on the penalty kill, Maucieri would cause a turnover at his own line and then go in alone on the breakaway and convert to complete the scoring and complete his 4 point opening night.

20 year old Michael Davis earn the victory between the pipes making 32 saves on 35 shots while his counterpart Mattias Smith turned aside   shots in the losing cause.

The two teams will meet in the back-end of their season opening home and home on Saturday night from Dauphin's Credit Union Place with puck drop at 7:30PM MB time.

Then just under 9 minutes later, Henry would see a trailing Kurri Woodford coming late into the Estevan zone & find him and the Littleton, Colorado would make no mistake going top-shelf to make it even at 2-2 after 40 minutes.

After a back and forth start to the 3rd the Bruins would break through to get the eventual game winner with 2:24 remaining in regulation as Eddie Gallagher would be left wide-open in front and his snap shot would squeak through the glove of Terrier G Phillipe Bond and into the back of the net.

Jayden Davis would seal the game with an empty-netter with 40 seconds left to help the Bruins improve their record to 1-1.

The first Centennial Cup was launched in Manitoba. In 1971, the Red Deer Rustlers of the Alberta Junior Hockey League claimed the inaugural championship and Centennial Trophy with a win over the Charlottetown Islanders. The final Centennial Cup was awarded to the Calgary Canucks in 1995, with the tournament being re-named the Royal Bank Cup from 1996 to 2018. 

“Within the CJHL, we are exceedingly excited about reactivating the Centennial Cup,” said Canadian Junior Hockey League president Brent Ladds. “It represents a cherished memory from our past and will capture the period of the RBC Cup to maintain the history of the road to the National Junior A Championship, which is so important to our members.”

As with other Hockey Canada national championships, the net proceeds from all ticket sales remain in the host community of Portage la Prairie to assist with hockey programs that encourage the growth of the game in the city and surrounding communities.

The 2020 National Junior A Championship represents a partnership between Hockey Canada, the Canadian Junior Hockey League, Manitoba Junior Hockey League and Hockey Manitoba.
