OVER 300 TEAMS ON BOARD FOR SUPER-SPIKE WITH TEAM REGISTREATION DEADLINE THIS FRIDAY JULY 19

OLIVIA LUNNY, LEANNE PEARSON AND DUST RHINOS HAVE NOW BEEN ADDED TO MUSIC LINE UP

Winnipeg – Super-Spike, presented by Michelob Ultra, is excited to announce that over 300 teams have already registered for the iconic summertime event.  Many more are still expected, with the team registration deadline fast approaching this Friday, July 19th at midnight.  

Super-Spike, which takes place at Winnipeg’s Maple Grove Rugby Park July 26th & 27th, combines Western Canada’s largest outdoor/beach volleyball tournament with a weekend long concert series, all set in a festival atmosphere.  For the second year in a row, Ultimate Frisbee has been added as an additional sport that will run in conjunction with the volleyball tournament.

Hip Hop, Dance and Funk will be taking centre stage this year with Canadian stars Delany Jane, The Funk Hunters, and Kardinal Offishall headlining the main stage at the event.  Local acts Olivia Lunny, Leanne Pearson, The Dust Rhinos, and DJ Zack Daniels have just been added to the music line up. 

Public interested in registering a team for this year’s event can do so by visiting www.superspike.ca. Registration fees are $59 per person, with tournament participants receiving free access for the concert series and on-site festivities.  Weekend passes for non-tournament participants can be purchased in advance for only $35 at www.superspike.ca

All three music headliners will be making their first ever appearance at Super-Spike. A four-time Juno & MMVA winner, Toronto’s ‘Kardinal Offishall’ will headline the main stage on Saturday July 27th, bringing his distinctive hip-hop style, spirited stage performances and captivating persona, that has helped make him a stand out on a world stage.  Offishall boasts a surplus of chart-topping hits that are guaranteed to energize crowds, including “Numba One”, “Body Bounce,” “Turn it Up,” and the smash hit “Dangerous” that made him the first ever Canadian rapper to chart a song on Billboard’s Hot 100.  Joining Offishall will be ‘Delaney Jane,’ a fellow Canadian international star who is currently one of the most recognized voices worldwide in Dance music with recent hits including “Easy Go,” “Bad Habits,” and “Throwback.”  

Headlining the main stage on Friday July 26th will be B.C.’s ‘The Funk Hunters’ who borrow inspiration from classic funk and hip-hop, while putting the soul back into electronic dance music. The DJ duo’s show is a brilliant technical display of creative collaboration between four turntables that have made them regulars and audience favorites at global festivals including Coachella, Osheaga, Burning Man, and Shambhala.

Super-Spike, now in its eighteenth year, acts as a significant local charitable fundraiser with over $1.2 million raised to date for annually selected charities of choice.

THREE GOLDEYES HEADED TO ALL-STAR GAME JULY 23rd 07/12/19

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Friday, July 12th, 2019

WINNIPEG, MB –
The Winnipeg Goldeyes, in conjunction with the American Association and the St. Paul Saints, announced Friday that infielder Wes Darvill, left-handed pitcher Mitchell Lambson, and right-handed pitcher Victor Capellan have been selected to the 2019 American Association All-Star Game on Tuesday, July 23rd at St. Paul’s CHS Field.
 
All three players will represent the American Association North Division.  The game will be played in a North versus South format.
 
Darvill has been voted in by the league’s field managers, general managers, and media representatives as the North’s starting shortstop.  Having been voted in as the American Association’s starting third baseman during the 2017 American Association/Can-Am League All-Star Game, Darvill becomes just the second player in the 14-year history of the league to be voted as a starter at two different infield positions (David Espinosa, 2008 and 2010).
 
Darvill is batting .309 with 31 runs scored, 12 doubles, two triples, four home runs, 20 RBI, and10 stolen bases in 12 attempts.  The Langley, British Columbia native opened the season as Winnipeg’s everyday third baseman where his .983 fielding percentage (two errors in 19 games) ranks third in the league. Since mid-June, Darvill has served as the Goldeyes’ shortstop where he has committed just two errors in 33 contests, and leads the league with a .986 fielding average.
 
Lambson is 5-2 in 11 starts, and currently ranks eighth in the league in ERA (3.08), second in strikeouts (67), and first in innings pitched (79.0).  Lambson has allowed two or fewer earned runs in seven of his 11 starts, and pitched back-to-back, nine-inning complete games June 13th and 20th.  The June 13th effort was a six-hit shutout at Gary SouthShore.  On June 26th at Sioux City, Lambson set a career-high with 11 strikeouts over eight-plus innings while picking up the victory.
 
Capellan leads the American Association with 18 saves and is tied for first with 26 appearances.  The 29-year-old right-hander has 24 strikeouts in 21.2 innings pitched.  Nine of Capellan’s 18 saves have come in one-run ballgames.  On June 11th at Gary SouthShore, Capellan earned his 38th save in a Goldeyes’ uniform, setting a new franchise career record.  This past Monday, Capellan notched the save in a 7-6 win versus St. Paul.  It marked Capellan’s 221st career appearance in the American Association, which surpassed the previous league record of 220 held by Dustin Cameron.
 
Lambson and Capellan were selected by Saints’ manager George Tsamis who will lead the North All-Stars having guided the Saints to the 2018 American Association Championship Series.  Joe Calfapietra, manager of the defending champion Kansas City T-Bones, will pilot the South Division.
 
The 2019 American Association All-Star Game is Tuesday, July 23rd at CHS Field in St. Paul, Minnesota.  It is the second time in four years the Saints host the league’s All-Star Game.
 
The Goldeyes open a three-game series against the St. Paul Saints tonight at CHS Field.  First pitch is at 7:05 p.m.  All the action can be heard locally on 93.7 FM CJNU and worldwide at www.cjnu.ca
 
The Goldeyes return home on Tuesday, July 16th when they host the Sioux Falls Canaries.  Advance tickets are on sale now by visiting www.goldeyes.com/tickets or by visiting the box office at Shaw Park.

Hockey Canada Selects Team East & West Coaches for 2019 World Jr A Challenge

Source: Junior Hockey Network

Nine coaches have been selected to lead Team Canada East and Team Canada West at the 2019 World Junior A Challenge, scheduled for December 7th – 15th at the Encana Events Centre in Dawson Creek, British Columbia.

Martin Dagenais (Embrun, Ont./Ottawa, CCHL) makes his return to Team Canada East as head coach, having previously served as an assistant coach at the 2016 and 2017 World Junior A Challenges, winning a silver medal in 2017. Dagenais will be joined by assistant coaches Corey Beer (Oshawa, Ont./Timmins, NOJHL), who assisted Team Canada East at the 2018 World Junior A Challenge, Greg Leland (Quispamsis, N.B./Campbellton, MHL), who has served as an assistant coach for Team Atlantic at the World Under-17 Hockey Challenge four times (1998, 2002, 2008, 2011), and Dan Sauvé (Ottawa/Rockland, CCHL), who will make his international coaching debut.

For Team Canada West, Joe Martin (Kingston, Ont./Alberni Valley, BCHL) makes his return to the World Junior A Challenge for the third-consecutive year, taking over as head coach after serving as an assistant for the past two years, winning gold in 2017 and bronze in 2018. Martin will be joined by assistant coaches Mike Vandekamp (Fort St. John, B.C./Cowichan Valley, BCHL) and Scott Barney (Oshawa, Ont./Humboldt, SJHL), who will make their international coaching debuts. Clayton Jardine (Lacombe, Alta./Camrose, AJHL), who suited up for Team Pacific at the 2008 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge, will support the team as video coach, while Allen York (Wetaskiwin, Alta./Camrose, AJHL), who won a gold medal with Team Canada West at the 2007 World Junior A Challenge and represented Canada at the 2013 Spengler Cup, will serve as goaltending coach.

“The coaches selected to lead Team Canada East and Team Canada West bring a combination of Junior A and international experience as players and coaches, and represent the level of talent in the coaching ranks in junior hockey in Canada,” said Brent Ladds, Canadian Junior Hockey League (CJHL) president. “It’s exciting to see our coaches moving into new roles with the two Canadian teams at the World Junior A Challenge and to welcome coaches who are new to international competition. We believe this year’s coaching staffs for both teams will benefit the players selected to participate, and bring their international experience back to their club teams.”

The CJHL also announced that Mark Grady (Halifax, N.S.) has been named director of operations for Team Canada East. Grady, who won bronze in 2007 as an assistant coach and silver as head coach in 2008, will make his fourth appearance with Team Canada East. Jamie McCaig (Edmonton, Alta./Alberni Valley, BCHL) will move into the role of director of operations for Team Canada West after serving as a goaltending coach for the past two years, winning gold in 2017 and bronze in 2018.

Dawson Creek will host the World Junior A Challenge for the first time, and the local host committee will look to continue its historic success with Hockey Canada events. The city most recently hosted Canada’s National Women’s Team Fall Festival in September 2018, as well as the 2015 and 2017 World Under-17 Hockey Challenges, and 2012 National Women’s Under-18 Championship.

The 2019 World Junior A Challenge represents a partnership between Hockey Canada, the CJHL, B.C. Hockey, NHL Central Scouting, and the local host committee. The international showcase features two Canadian teams – Team Canada East and Team Canada West – along with the Czech Republic, Russia, and the United States.

UND Hockey: Where Did They End up

By Eric Burton

After the last round of the 2019 NHL Draft, I had a conversation with my buddy Redwing77. We discussed the various hockey analyst’s predraft rankings and how the draft played out.

First, the analyst’s rankings were all over the place. That’s understandable, because there really isn’t an exact science for predicting the draft. Surprise picks throws off everyone else’s draft boards. Looking at the different analyst’s rankings, there really was no rhythm or reason to them.

Where Did They End UP?

Here’s how UND’s recruits fared during the 2019 NHL Draft. Some of them were drafted and others weren’t. I used the links from the Schlossman’s article at the Herald. I added a few of my favorite sites/blogs. I also added DU incoming freshman Bobby Brink for obvious reasons.

Here’s a list of incoming UND hockey players, their NHL Draft rankings and what team selected them. Obviously, a few of them were ranked but weren’t drafted.

Shane Pinto, 2000, UND – 28, 49, 45, 38, 106, 105, 56, 40, 73 : average ranking 54.375 – 32 Senators

Aaron Huglen, 2001, Roseau/Minnesota – 90, 92, 91, 75, 87: average ranking 87 – 102 Buffalo

Cooper Moore, 2001, UND – 88 – 128 Detroit

Harrison Blaisdell, 2001, UND – 80, 60, 105, 141, 165, 56, 87: average ranking 99.14  – 134 Winnipeg

Judd Caulfield, 2001, UND – 67, 82, 85, 87, 74, 183: average ranking 96.33  – 145 Pittsburgh

Massimo Rizzo, 2001, UND – 84, 139, 214, 94: average ranking 133.5  – 216 Carolina

Luke Bast, 2000, UND – 137, 217, 157: average ranking  170.33– Undrafted

Brendan Budy, 2000, UND – 155 – Undrafted

Bobby Brink, 2001, DU – 19, 32, 26, 37, 19, 20, 23: average ranking  25.142 – 34 Flyers
