Weekend Scores

After shaking up the roster with a pair of major trades on Friday, the Melville Millionaires picked up their first win against the Estevan Bruins in 5 tries this season, 5-4 on Saturday.

Russell Trudeau, one of the newcomers, had a goal and an assist in his debut, while captain Lee Christensen made his return to the lineup, with a goal and an assist, while having a Plus-4 rating.

Trudeau was acquired from Steinbach, with 20 year old forward Mark Owen, and goaltender Zach Rakochy going the other way.

The other deal saw the Mils ship forward Roger Tagoona to Battleford for 20 year old goalie Blake Voth.

Coach & GM Jamie Fiesel says goaltender Alex Wakaluk will push Voth for playing time.

The Millionaires are now 7-6-1-3 on the season, and look for back to back wins on Wednesday, with Weyburn coming to town.


The Yorkton Terriers fell just short of having a perfect road trip to Flin Flon and Nipawin.

They went into the Whitney Forum on Friday and beat the Bombers 4-1.

The next night, after holding a 3-1 lead, the Terriers fell 4-3 in a shootout in Nipawin.

Yorkton still grabbed 3 of a possible 4 points on their trip, and are now 2-0-1, as they're halfway through a stretch of 6 straight away from Farrell Agencies Arena.

The next two are this Wednesday and Thursday when they travel to Kindersley and Battleford.

We'll have both games on the air.


Taking a 4 game winning streak into the weekend, the Wayway Wolverines managed just 1 of a possible 4 points on a 2 game swing.

The Wolverines llost 6-3 Saturday night in Selkirk, but battled for a 3-2 shootout loss in Portage last night.

Stephane Robidoux had a goal and an assist, and has 3 points in 3 games since returning from injury.

Cory Simons made 32 saves, but was upstaged by Shea Cooper's 36 saves at the other end.


The Swan Valley Stampeders lost a pair of 1-goal games to Winnipeg teams on the weekend. They led the Saints 1-0 for most of the night, before the Saints tied it, and then won it, with 1 second left in regulation, for a 2-1 decision.

The Stamps then picked up a point, falling 5-4 in a shootout to the Blues on Saturday.


Understandably, you readers like trades more than anything. Check out the difference in views on Friday with the Melville moves. What's more interesting to me is how dead-even the other days were in the last week.
