Melville Millionaires running a Hockey Pool fundraiser

The Melville Millionaires are running a hockey pool with office pools this year in order to help us raise extra funds to go towards our off ice apparel. In order to get your team entered, simply follow the link and select your players/teams. A goal is worth 2 points and an assist is worth 1, teams will get 1 point for each win and 1 point for each shutout. Each entry will cost you $20 and you may submit as many entries as you like, we also encourage you to send this to as many of your friends as possible! Also if you or them require a new link please let me know and I will send it again. The more people that enter, the more money you might win!

The pay out for the pool will have a 50/50 split, half of the pot will go to the Millionaires with the remaining half divided amongst the winners. Once we see how many entries we have, we will determine how many places we will pay out, however a minimum of the top 3 places will be paid out.

The deadline to enter the pool is November 2, 2016 at 6:00 pm CST

Entry fee of $20 CAD is payable by cheque to the Melville Millionaires, cash or email transfer to melvillemills@sasktel.net

La Ronge Ice Wolves relieve HC/GM Shawn Martin of his duties

(From Braden Malsbury and MBCradio.com)

Late on Sunday evening, the La Ronge Ice Wolves Board of Directors relieved Head Coach and GM Shawn Martin of his duties.
"Looking over the season a little bit, the board felt that the organization wasn't quite where it needed to be," said Ice Wolves President, Mike Bell. "The board felt that change was in order."
Bell adds that the current group of assistant coaches will take over duties for now, but he says they are actively looking for a new head coach and general manager.
"We’d like to thank Shawn (Martin) for his passion and dedication for the last four years," said Bell. "We wish Shawn all the success in his future endeavors."
Martin replaced Bob Beatty, who left the SJHL for the BCHL's Cowichan Valley Capitals shortly after the 2012-2013 season ended.
During Martin’s tenure, he compiled a 69-96-10-10 record. The Ice Wolves stumbled out of the gate this season, posting a 2-12-0-1 record through 15 games.
