More hockey??

One follower on twitter suggested that I talk about other hockey teams such as the Toronto Maple Leafs and team Canada. So I will try my best. Team Canada with Mike Babcock as coach faces Team Europe in a best of 3 final.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have begun training camp and will play pre season games. They are coming to Saskatoon on Oct 4th and yours truely has a ticket. I am excited!!

Blades Crash and Burn during Home Opener.

I expected more out of this team at the Home opener. Maybe all the buzz of Gordie Howe tribute day was a distraction?? The Blades were held off the score sheet. 6-0 was the final score. 70 games left. Long season. Saskatoon will travel to Medicine Hat for a tilt with the Tigers on Friday September 30th

Blades Start off on the right skate.

The Saskatoon Blades opened the 2016-2017 WHL season on the road VS Swift Current Broncos. Dean Brockman made his WHL coaching debut. 

Saskatoon scored the first goal of the game. They would not look back. The line of Mason McCarty,Jesse Shynkaruk and Brylon Shmyr was on fire tonight. 

Newcomers Josh Bruce and Michael Farren contributed offensively as well. 

Logan Flodell was the starting goalie for the visitors. He shut the door on the Broncos.

The final score was 5-1 for the visiting Blades. The rematch goes Sunday afternoon in Saskatoon. The Blades will pay tribute to Mr.Hockey.

Time to update this blog

I finally decided to start blogging again. The Saskatoon Blades have made big changes since my last blog entry. New owners. New head coach and GM as well. The team has not made the playoffs in awhile. Fans including myself are hoping this season will be different.

The team has produced a winning record in the pre season. Most recently defeating the Edmonton Oil Kings last night 5-4.

I am excited for the season to start Sept 23rd. The home opener goes Sunday Sept 25th with a tribute to Geordie Howe. It should be a great display.

Go Blades Go. Stay locked here for my own reports and opinions on the Blades this season.
