Moose Jaw D Dallas Ehrhardt was a minus-3 on Friday as the Warriors beat the Prince Albert Raiders 6-5 in a shootout. He then was a healthy scratch on Saturday, so sat out the Warriors’ 7-4 victory over the visiting Swift Current Broncos.
And you have to love Moose Jaw head coach Mike Stothers’ explanation.
“He’s a great kid,” Stothers told Matthew Gourlie of the Moose Jaw Times-Herald. “He’s working hard. He’s just lost his game a little bit and we’re going to help him find it.”
TWEET OF THE DAY:
F Nick Buonassisi of the Prince George Cougars, who are about to begin an East Division swing, tweeted on Sunday:
“Heading to sask tonight. For 2 weeks. Nothing worse then the sasky guys saying how great their province is #clueless”
Buonassisi, 19, is from Coquitlam. The Cougars’ roster includes six players from Saskatchewan. They open the swing Tuesday in Prince Albert against the Raiders.
From the Red Deer Advocate:
PRINCE ALBERT — The Red Deer Rebels were on the receiving end of a jolt early Sunday for the second time in a matter of hours.
After falling 7-2 to the Prince Albert Raiders in a Western Hockey League game Saturday night, the Rebels were shaken out of their early-morning slumber when their team bus struck a deer near Landis, Sask.
The collision broke both headlights on the drivers’ side and cracked both windshields. But it might not have been as painful as the Rebels’ loss at Prince Albert . . .
For today’s good read, we go to Bill Plaschke of the Los Angeles Times. He remembers Roger Maris and wonders why baseball doesn’t work harder at doing the same. That piece is right here.
