Terriers drop a 6-1 decision on road to the Notre Dame Hounds

For the first time in the 2017/18 SJHL regular season, the Yorkton Terriers have lost in regulation.

The Terriers fell on Thursday night, 6-1 to the Notre Dame Hounds at the Duncan McNeil Arena in Wilcox.

The Terriers got an early PP opportunity just 4 seconds into the game but they weren't able to convert and just seconds after it expired the Hounds capitalized as Chaz Smedsrud jammed it past Logan Bateman for his 2nd of the season to make it 1-0. The Hounds would then get two late goals just 1:36 apart off the sticks of Chance Longjohn and Curtis Wiebe to give the home-side a 3 goal lead at 3-0 after 20 mins with shots 17-3 ND.

The Hounds would add another in the 2nd period just 3:36 into it, as Colby Brandt made a nice move around a couple Terrier defenders and put home his 2nd of the year to give Notre Dame a 4-0 lead after 40 minutes. Shots were 31-7 ND after 2 periods.

Power play goals would be the theme for the Hounds in the 3rd as they would add couple more markers from Marshall Wiltom and Connor Mylymok to push their lead to 6-0. Yorkton would add one late as Shane Sherban would break the shutout of Jack Ryan with his 2nd with just 3:50 remaining to make it a 6-1 Hounds final.

Jack Ryan made 13 saves on 14 shots in the Hounds net for his 1st SJHL win while Logan Bateman had his record drop to 1-1-1 on the season making 41 saves in the loss.

The two teams will meet on Friday night for the back end of the home and home series. Game time is at 7:30 from the Farrell Agencies Arena.

Yorkton Raider Gridder Coaches Show - Sept 21st Edition

In this weeks edition of the Yorkton Raider Gridder Coaches Show, Head Coach Roby Sharpe recaps the teams two wins over Weyburn and Estevan and previews Saturdays game at home vs. Swift Current. Meanwhile special guest and former Raider Gridder Coach Ed Magis talks about the past history of Raider Gridder football.

2017 SJHL Showcase set to begin on Sunday

(SJHL Press Release)

One of the mandates of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League is to promote its players for opportunities to continue playing the game while gaining an education after their junior career has been completed and the first major event to do just that takes place this weekend when the annual Showcase is set to begin on Sunday in Saskatoon.

The Showcase gathers all 12 teams into one location where each club will play a pair of contests with points gained from those matches counting in the overall standings. The philosophy behind this format is simple: it allows scouts from various levels – CIS, NCAA, WHL and NHL – to view the players at one time and in one place and also provides for easier accessibility to these players so that more information can be garnered.

There are a couple of notable changes this year with the event being held at the Hamm Latrace Arena (1347 Fletcher Road – beside Gordie Howe Park) in Saskatoon as opposed to the Legends Arena in Warman and the other is that there will be no Young Guns contests preceding the event.

Another change is the partnership with the Knights of Columbus that has been struck up for the event. The K of C will be charging $10 admission per day for adults with proceeds being split between that group and the SJHL.

The Showcase is held early in the season to give scouts an opportunity to see what kind of talent is out there and it also falls into a favourable rotation for that group who attend similar events in other leagues prior to and immediately after the SJHL Showcase.

Armed with the information gleaned from this event, the scouts will return to Regina in mid-January when the inaugural SJHL/MJHL showcase will be staged. Evaluations will be more complete with this additional showcase of talent and it is hoped that more players get opportunities to continue to pursue their dream of playing the game while also getting an education.

Following is a complete list of games to be played at the SJHL Showcase. Fans and scouts alike can expect thrilling and competitive games throughout.
