League Champs Crowned
Posted By: Gene
Saturday, March 22, 2014

For the second straight year, a first year team in the Fishing Lake Hockey League has taken home the league championship. After the Hudson Bay Hunters did it last year, the Valley Axemen took the title away this year. After winning Game Three 5-4 in overtime Friday night, the Axemen wrapped up the title at home edging the Hunters 3-1 (with the last goal into an empty net with one second left).
 
The last two games were very good senior hockey games, so congratulations to both evenly matched teams, but the Axemen deserved it based on this weekend's play, winning the best-of-five final three games to one. After scoring two goals in Game Three (including the tying goal late in the third, Darren Miller had the first two for the Axemen, including the winner in the third period, Saturday, notching his 12th and 13th goals of the playoffs. 
 
League President Kelly Patrick presented the Axemen with the league trophy and a banner for the arena. He also announced that Miller had been named Playoff MVP. This was also a deserving award. 
Game three of finals is a classic

Game Three of the FLHL final turned out to be a tremendous hockey game. The home ice Hudson Bay Hunters led 4-2 after forty minutes but gave up the only two goals of the third and lost it 5-4 in overtime. The Valley Axemen lead the best-of-five series 2 games to one with Game Four in Swan River Saturday evening, 7:30 local time (6:30 SK time). If the Hunters can force a fifth and deciding game, it will Sunday evening in Hudson Bay.

The next two games in the FLHL final have been set. Game Three is in Hudson Bay Friday, March 21 at 8:30 (SK time), while Game Two is Saturday, March 22 at 7:30 (MB time) in Swan River.
Hunters SHA run ends abruptly

Sunday, March 16, 2014

The provincial playoff run for the Hudson Bay Hunters ended very abruptly in Wilkie on Sunday evening as the home ice Outlaws clobbered the Hunters 9-0. The Hunters gave everything they had on Saturday night to force a deciding Game Three, but after three tough games in three straight nights, plus the drive across the province today, they obviously had nothing left in the legs against a very good Wilkie team. The Outlaws go on to the provincial final for Senior C hockey, while the Hunters will turn their attention to finishing up the FLHL final series against the Valley Axemen.
SHA playoffs

Saturday, March 15, 2014

The Hudson Bay Hunters played a strong second half of the game, scoring the final four goals to double visiting Wilkie Outlaws 6-3 Saturday evening in Game Two of the best-of-three Northern Final for senior C hockey. The Hunters lost Game One a week earlier 7-2. The win forced a return trip to Wilkie on Sunday with the winner of that game advancing to the provincial final. The Kelvington Wheat Kings lost 5-4 to St.Walburg on a late goal. The loss in the second game of the best-of-three Senior D Northern final knocked the Wheaties out of the provincial playoffs. They lost Game One 8-3. St. Walburg will play the winner of Gull Lake and Avonlea in the provincial final. It was a nice run in the provincials for Kelvington.

New schedule for finals
Posted By: Gene
Tuesday, March 11, 2014

Calm, intelligent minds have met, got on the same page, and rescheduled game two of the league final. According to the constitution, playoffs must be played on the weekend. Therefore, the game scheduled for Wednesday, March 12, has been moved to Friday, March 14 in Swan River. Game time is 7:30 (SK time) and 8:30 local time (Manitoba). 
 
I will adjust the schedule on this site again. Representatives of the Axemen and Hunters will assess the situation after the Hunters' SHA playoff action this weekend and see when the rest of the league final will get played. It may well be that the Hunters will have three-game weekends, but it may be hard to avoid.
 
Obviously, lots of people want to see the series come to an end, but, at the same time, I can't believe Valley wanted to win any other way, than on the ice. The Hunters want the same outcome, but the situation is definitely complicated by Hudson Bay's provincial hopes. 
 
Congratulations to both sides for settling this confusion with mature attitudes. May the best team now win the series.

Sunday, March 09, 2014

Both FLHL teams involved in SHA playoffs lost the first game of the best-of-three Northern finals on the weekend. Both series will finish up this coming weekend.
 
Kelvington lost 8-3 at home to St.Walburg. The winners have a very good team, including former St.Louis Blue D.J.King. One observation noted, "He's 6-5, 240, and can he move the puck." His brother, Dwight, is a current L.A. King. Games two and three (if necessary) are scheduled for Saturday, March 15 and Sunday, March 16 in St.Walburg.
 
Likewise, the Hudson Bay Hunters are glad they are in a best-of-three, rather than a two-game, total-goal series following their 7-3 loss to the very good Wilkie Outlaws. The Hunters hope that, with a complete line-up this weekend, they can stay alive on Saturday with a win, and return the long trip to Wilkie on Sunday.
Final is now best-of-five
Posted By: Gene
Sunday, March 09, 2014

The league final has been changed to a best-of-five series. Apparently, both teams agreed to the change before Game One in Hudson Bay on Friday. The proposed dates have been entered on the schedule. If there is a mistake on times and/or locations, please inform me immediately so I can post proper information.
Clarification
Posted By: Gene
Saturday, March 08, 2014

Apparently, an innocent (or what I intended as an innocent comment) observation about Friday's game one of the finals did not sit well with some FLHL observers. I never meant to insinuate that the Hunters 'gave' Valley the game when I made a casual comment about the Hunters being short-handed. I have used the same phrase 'short-staffed' several times this season about a variety of teams. 
 
I was not at Friday's game, so I went from what I knew they were missing, some very key players. I had not talked to anyone from the team before I posted the score, so I certainly was not whining on behalf of the team, nor were the Hunters whining through me.
 
 I'm sure Valley fully deserved the win, and I hope the rest of the final series is good hockey.

Change to schedule for final
Posted By: Gene
Wednesday, March 05, 2014

Unfortunately, because of the provincial playoffs for  the Hudson Bay Hunters, there has been a change to the schedule for the FLHL final. The Hunters are in the Northern final, which is a best-of-three, so they have to get that series started this weekend, and then they will also have to play a potential two games of provincials next weekend.
 
The FLHL final will start Friday, March 7 in Hudson Bay at 8:30. The game (second of the final) scheduled for Minitonas for Saturday, March 8 has been postponed and will be re-scheduled. 
Kelvington Playoff Dates
Posted By: Gene
Tuesday, March 04, 2014

Kelvington has solidified its playoff dates for a best-of-three Senior D Northern final against St. Walburg. The Wheat Kings will open at home Saturday, March 8 at 8:00. A week later they head to St.Walburg for an 8:00 game on Saturday, March 15. If a game three is necessary, it will be played Sunday, March 16 at 2:30.
FLHL Award Winners

Sunday, March 02, 2014

While the league award winners were announced quite some time ago, I finally got around to posting pictures of the winners. If someone from Valley can send me a picture of Darren Miller (either head and shoulders, or being presented his award), I would post it along with the picture I have put in a Photo Galley. I have included pictures of Derek Leidl, Braden Messer, Blake Foster, and Donnie Melnyk. I need more education on handling this part of the site. Click on the picture of Donnie Melnyk as it shows up in the gallery, and the other winners will show up.
SHA results Feb 28-March 1
Posted By: Gene
Sunday, March 02, 2014

Two Fishing Lake Hockey League teams are still alive in SHA provincials following weekend action. The Hudson Bay Hunters, who will start the league final against Valley Axemen this coming weekend, played twice, winning 5-0 in Kinistino Friday and then losing 6-5 at home Saturday, a game in which they did just enough to win the series 10-6. They will next play the winner of Wilkie and Delisle (Wilkie won the first game 6-2) in the best-of-three Northern final.
 
The Kelvington Wheat Kings tied Allan 8-8 at home a week ago, but then went to Allan on Saturday and beat them 4-2, winning their series 12-10.  The Wheaties will play the winner of St. Walburg and Luseland in the best-of-three Northern final in Senior D.
Provincial results

Friday, February 28, 2014

Two FLHL teams were involved in provincial playoffs Friday, February 28. The Hudson Bay Hunters rode the solid goaltending of Derek Leidl to a 5-0 win in Kinistino in the first game of their second round series in Senior C. Game two is in Hudson Bay Saturday, Marc h 1, 7:30.
 
Kamsack lost their opener to Esterhazy 10-0 but they battled hard in Esterhazy Friday night, losing 11-9 in a wild one. They lost the series and are done for the year, but they certainly went out fighting.
 
Saturday, Kelvington will try to close out their second round series as they play game two after an 8-8 tie against Allan in game one. The Wheat Kings are on the road Saturday.
 
 
League finalists have been determined
Posted By: Gene
Sunday, February 23, 2014

The finalists in the Fishing Lake Hockey League playoffs have been determined after the Hudson Bay Hunters trimmed the Blues in Porcupine 3-2 on Saturday evening to win the best-of-five in four games. The game was excellent until the dying moments when it once again ended badly.
 
After a scoreless first period, Ed Lathlin and the Hunters' Tyler Lang exchanged goals in the second period. Scott Vaughan put the Hunters ahead 2-1 with 13:08 left in the third and Alex Anderson snuck in another just 1:22 later. With 7:01 left Jordan Sinclair tapped in a goal to give his team a chance, but the Hunters survived the onslaught.
 
The box score has been finally entered.  I wasn't sure how to enter an ejection for a coach so I listed Marshall Cowan as a player. The Hunters' assistant coach was assessed a gross misconduct at the end of the game. 
 
The Hunters will now try to defend their league title against the Valley Axemen, the league's newest team. That series will not start for two weeks as the scheduling is complicated by what will hopefully be a provincial run by the Hunters. They  play a home-and-home with Kinistino Tigers this coming weekend.
 
On another provincial easel, the Kamsack Flyers did not paint a very pretty picture as they opened at home against Esterhazy, and took it on the chin 10-0. The return game is Friday in Esterhazy, and barring a miracle, the Flyers will see their season end. 
 
Kelvington opened their provincial series at home Saturday night and tied Allan 8-8. Game two for the Wheat Kings will be on the road Saturday, March 1 at 8:00.  
Final series
Posted By: Gene
Sunday, February 23, 2014

With many teams involved in playoffs (league or provincials), ice time is at a premium. The managers for the Valley Axemen and the Hudson Bay Hunters have agreed on the first two dates of their best-of-seven series. The series will open in Hudson Bay on Friday, March 7, and continue Saturday, March 8 in Minitonas.  The rest of the schedule will have to be worked in around provincial playoffs for the Hunters.
 
[Webmaster Note -- because of the Hunters' provincial playoffs, these dates are still pending and one of them could be supplanted by a provincial game, although that is contingent on Hudson Bay getting by Kinistino this weekend.]

Friday games
Posted By: Geno
Friday, February 21, 2014

Both semi-final series were in full swing Friday evening. In Kamsack, the Valley Axemen wrapped up their series over the Flyers by scoring two third period goals to win the game 6-5 and the series three games to one. Blake Bulcz had two goals for Valley, including the winner with 2:20 left in the third. There were just 11 minors called (seven to Kamsack) as the boys played hockey.
 
 
In Hudson Bay, the defending league champion Hunters pulled ahead of Porcupine Plain in their series with a 6-2 win. The Hunters broke open a game that was tied at two in the second with the winner by Travis Dennis, and then the only three goals of the third period. The third was a wild affair, which will likely result in three suspensions to Blues players. Unfortunately, there was also action in the crowd, which ruined the outing for many fans. The Hunters, who head to Porcupine tomorrow evening for game four, had six different scorers.
 
 Hudson Bay was whistled for 18 minors, while the Blues drew 17 minors, one major, two misconducts, and two gross misconducts.
The penalties drew a three-game suspension for Porcupine Kevin McGillvary, who was leading the playoffs in scoring, and two-game bans for Garrett Young and Kirk Cote.

My apologies for being late on the scoring summaries from last weekend. I was away for a week, tried to do a game tonight, and, of course, it wouldn't enter. I will try to finish later. The individual scoring stats of PP and HB are entered, I hope. .The Valley-Kamsack game from last Saturday will be entered soon.
 
Hudson Bay and Porcupine Plain plan to wrap up their series this weekend with games Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. 
 
The Axemen are hoping to close out the Flyers in Kamsack Friday evening. They lead their semi-final series 2 games to 1.
Axemen hew out series lead

Wednesday, February 19, 2014

The Valley Axemen trailed visiting Kamsack Flyers 1-0 after the first period, but did almost all the damage on the scoreboard after as they skated to an 8-3 win to take a 2-1 series lead.
 
Darren Miller fired three goals and set up another to pace the attack. 
 
The game summary will have to be competed later in the week.

Hudson Bay evens series
Posted By: Gene
Saturday, February 15, 2014

The Hudson Bay Hunters proved that they are not done yet as they trimmed the home ice Porcupine Plain Blues 2-1 on Saturday to even their semi-final at one game each. Porcupine led 1-0 after the first on a goal by Jordan Sinclair. The Hunters tied it after the second as Travis Dennis scored, and then won it on a goal by Scott Vaughan midway through the final period. Hudson Bay outshot the Blues 31-25.
 
The game had just 12 minor penalties, five to Hudson Bay. The night before there were nine power play goals; tonight there were none.
 
Game three is scheduled for next Friday in Hudson Bay. 
 
The box score will not be completed until later in the week.
Blues grab semi-final lead
Posted By: Gene
Friday, February 14, 2014

The Porcupine Plain Blues walked into Hudson Bay and edged the Hunters 7-6 in the first game of their semi-final series. The Hunters led 4-0 after the first and totally stopped doing the things that got them the lead in the second period. The Blues scored five power play goals, while the Hunters had four as both teams took turns taking bad penalties. Period scores were 4-0 and 6-5, and the Blues had the only two goals of the third, notching the winner about halfway through the period.
 
At least three goals were credited to the wrong players. Ed Lathlin clearly had the winner, but it was credited to someone else. 
 
Game two is in Porcupine Plain Saturday. 
 
Meanwhile, the Kelvington Wheat Kings beat Lake Lenore 7-4 to win their provincial series and move on to the next round.
S.H.A playoffs
Posted By: Gene
Sunday, February 09, 2014

Hudson Bay Hunters are through to the second round of the S.H.A. after disposing of the Naicam Vikings. The Hunters won 10-1 at home Saturday, and then tied game two 5-5 in Naicam Sunday. The Hunters did not display nearly as much urgency as they did in Game One. Vikings' goaltender Chris MacDonald was also very good in both games. Hudson Bay will await the winner of Birch Hills and Kinistino. There are 17 teams in Senior C. Meanwhile, Kelvington Wheat Kings may be out of the league playoffs, but they are very much alive in provincials. At home Saturday evening, the Wheat Kings beat Lake Lenore 8-3 to grab a nice lead heading on the road for Game Two Friday, February 14 at 8:00. There are just 14 teams in Senior D. Kamsack Flyers are playing Senior B with just 9 other teams. They are locked in a series with Esterhazy.
Axemen even series
Posted By: Gene
Saturday, February 08, 2014

The Valley Axemen evened their semi-final by trimming Kamsack 7-6 in OT on a goal by Joel Mateika. Darren Miller had two for the Axemen, while Robert Cochrane had a pair (as well as three assists for a fine 5-point outing) for the Flyers. Game Three is set for Minitonas Sunday evening. Hopefully, the summary can be completed soon.

In SHA action, Hudson Bay Hunters pounded Naicam Vikings 10-1 in game one of their Senior C series. The two team go at it again in Naicam Sunday afternoon. Ian Munro had three goals for the Hunters, while Bobby Dyck had two.
 
Hopefully, other FLHL teams will send in their provincial scores, and they will be posted here. 
Porcupine Plain moving on
Posted By: Gene
Friday, February 07, 2014

The Porcupine Plain Blues were firing on all cylinders in the third period of Game Three of the Survivor Series as they pumped in five goals to double the Kelvington Wheat Kings 10-5 to win the series and advance against Hudson Bay in the semi-final. That series will likely start next weekend.
 
The Blues won both games one and three in Kelvington to take the series on Friday night. 
 
The game summary will hopefully be entered sometime on Saturday. League scoring leader Donnie Melnyk was held in check the first two games, but he exploded with three goals and three assists. Kevin McGillvary had a goal and five assists. Other goals were scored by Mike Young (also two helpers), Dustin Constant, Jordan Sinclair, Chris Niquanicappo, Ryan Kehrig, and Ed Lathlin.
 
Replying for Kelvington, last year's league finalists, were Cole Melrose with three, Jared Boyes, and Daniel Hope (also three assists). 
 
Kamsack hosts Valley Saturday evening in Game Two of the semi-final. 
Kamsack-Valley opener
Posted By: Gene
Sunday, February 02, 2014

This was a classic playoff contest as the two teams basically played two games. Devin Severson's second goal of the game in the sixth period gave the visiting Kamsack Flyers a 4-3 OT win over the Axemen. With just 11 skaters, the Flyers also got goals from Brooks Cochrane and Logan Hilderman.

Valley got two from Darren Miller and one from Riley Morden.

Special mention of the goaltenders -- Blake Foster of the Flyers and Mike Smith -- for their double-header duties.

With help from Dan Pilling at Sportzone, the goalie numbers are up-to-date and accurate, as he made a slight adjustment. He was also able to enter the Valley-Kamsack game. I appreciate Dan's support, but I wish I knew why it messes up for me from time to time.

Just a word on the goalie statistics in the playoffs. Apparently, I will continue to learn the ins and outs of this program. The website requires shots on goal totals to maintain a proper GAA. During the season, if I had no shot totals, I entered 10, 10, 10 for each period and it worked well. When the playoff season was set, I followed directions and did not enter the length of the games (normally 60 minutes, of course) because I could not be sure I would get accurate shot totals for every game.  So, now it calculates Goals Against per Game, and does not figure in Minutes Played. I will try to keep accurate GAA in this section after every game, because a triple overtime game will really skew the individual stats. I have no idea what will happen when two goalies split a game??
 
I warned you that any team could win any series. Two of the first three playoff games have gone to OT. Exciting, but it has caused problems entering the game summaries! I will continue to work on getting the Kamsack-Valley game entered
 
With that in mind, after two games each -- Trevor Logan (PP) has a 4.09 GAA,
                                                                             Treven Leason (Kel) is officially at 2.73. 
                                   with one game each -- Blake Foster (Kam) 1.76
                                                                             Mike Smith (Valley)  2.35 
Saturday playoff games

Saturday, February 01, 2014

Sorry about the lateness, but the website wouldn't let me on for several hours. Porcupine did a great job getting me the score sheet immediately after the game. So that score is in from Saturday evening, but the Kamsack-Valley game has not yet been reported.
 
In Porcupine Plain, Kelvington stayed alive as they beat the Blues 5-1 to send the Survivor Series to a third and deciding game next weekend. Daniel Hope had two goals, and Sean Patrick three assists to lead the attack. Other Wheat King goals were scored by Scott Standish, Jared Boyes and Ryan Mottram.
 
Mike Young had the lone Blues goal. 
 
The website will be updated properly in the morning. 
Playoff season starts with a bang
Posted By: Gene
Friday, January 31, 2014

The Fishing Lake Hockey League playoffs started off with a bang as the visiting Porcupine Plain Blues edged Kelvington 5-4 in overtime. Jordan Sinclair had the winner 12 minutes into the extra session. 
 
  The game was a rough one with 30 minors (18 to Porcupine) and 3 misconducts to each team.
 
Kevin McGillvary had a pair for the Blues, while Mike Young and Ryan Bartle had the others.
 
For the Wheat Kings, Cole Melrose had two, and others were scored by Nick Grona and Daniel Hope.
 
Details will be posted Saturday morning. 
 
Game two is Saturday in Porcupine Plain at 7:30. The series between Valley and Kamsack starts Saturday with a 7:00 start in Bowsman.

Playoff rosters
Posted By: Gene
Friday, January 31, 2014

Just a reminder that the team line-ups that I moved over to the playoff season are NOT official rosters. I just wanted to see if I could set up a new season. I did trim some players off the rosters, but I left others who were questionable. I am waiting for official team rosters to come from managers and the league office. Who is eligible (or desirable) for playoffs is not a decision I am making. I will fix the rosters when I start to get results or once I am faxed the rosters.
 
If there are questions about specific players, I will go back to the game sheets and check. With the troubles I had entering some games, I had to manually update the players from those games and I may have made a mistake. I did adjust the number of 'games played' for one Porcupine Plain player (Dennis Dorian) this morning. He has legitimately played four games. I apologize for the mistake. 
 
Please send game sheets as soon as possible, but please text me (865-6456) so that I know to go pick up the faxes.. 
New season has been created
Posted By: Gene
Sunday, January 26, 2014

I think the new season (2013-14 Playoffs) has been created and I have even cleaned up some of the rosters, taking off people who have not played four games or who have not played in a while. Team reps, let me know about rosters. I can always add players.
 
 I have entered the three dates of the Kelvington-PP series. As soon as other series are planned, please send me the dates.[Update -- first game of the Kamsack-Valley series is now posted on the schedule.]
 
To find the new season, open the site and wherever it says "2013-14 season", there should be a drop-down menu. Select "2013-14 playoffs". 
Thanks to team management

Sunday, January 26, 2014

I think the first year with the Sportzone website was a huge success. I still have lots to learn and it's going to start tomorrow when I try to set up the playoff season. I have learned a lot and have worked through some issues (some self-induced, to be sure).
 
I can't take credit for the way the website looks, as all I do is enter the info. I do try to get it updated as quickly as I can and still have a life of my own. I can't do that without cooperation from the various team reps. Sorry I bugged you, but I will continue to do so through the playoffs. It is very important that game sheets continue to come into the league office and to me.
 
So a huge thank-you to Chris Leis, Doug Elsasser, and especially Coach Brian Caldwell in Kamsack; Bill Zaitsoff, Todd Dolton and Coach Gene Gel here in Hudson Bay; Cramer Coulthart and Dallas Anderson in Swan Valley; Karen Standish in Kelvington; and Evan Ashdown and Trevor Logan in Porcupine. Your help is much appreciated. Hope I didn't miss anyone.
Regular season ends
Posted By: Gene
Sunday, January 26, 2014

The 2013-14 regular season has ended in the FLHL. Now it is time for some very interesting playoff series. In fact, every one of the four coming series could go either way. It will be exciting to see which teams show up in which uniforms because every team has a chance to win.
 
The regular season wrapped up with a 7-3 win by Valley over Kamsack. Those two teams will meet in one semi-final. The Axemen swept the four games between the two teams. 
 
In the Survivor Series, Kelvington holds home ice advantage on Porcupine. The two teams split the four games, with one of Porcupine's two wins coming in a shootout. The winner of this best-of-three will advance to play first place Hudson Bay. 
 
The scoring race was won by Donnie Melnyk (HB/PP) 51 pts; followed by Scott Effa (Kam) 40;  Darin Miller (Valley) 39;  Daniel Hope (Kel) 38; and Devin Severson (Kam) 33.
 
Top goal scorer was Donnie Melnyk 27. Miller was second with 24 followed by Severson 19, Hope 17, and Effa 16.
 
Assists leaders were Jordan Sinclair (HB/PP) 28, Effa and Melnyk 24, and Hope 21.
 
As for the goaltenders --  Derek Leidl (HB) finished the regular season with a record of 10-1-1 and a GAA of 4.39. Mike Smith of the Axemen had an 9-2 record and a GAA of 3.70 (tops among regularly played goalies). Treven Leason of Kelvington was the league workhorse playing 15 of the 16 games, and playing 915 minutes (7-7-1, 4.72).

   The Hudson Bay Hunters stopped a mini two-game losing streak by edging visiting Kamsack Flyers 7-5 Saturday night. Aaron Porter had his best game of the season with three goals and two assists, including being in on the last two goals that broke a 5-5 tie. Dustin Skilliter also had a strong game with two goals and one helper.
 
   Kamsack deserves full marks for a gutsy effort as they came with just 10 skaters and lost one before the game was four minutes old. They worked as hard as they could with a short bench, and were very opportunistic with their chances. They got two goals from both Jordan Vogel and RJ Cochrane, while their top scorer, Scott Effa, had three helpers.
 
    Meanwhile, in Porcupine Plain, Kelvington beat the Blues 3-2. The home side had just 10 skaters. Details will be posted tomorrow. None of the games this weekend meant anything in the standings.  
 
    A correction from a previous note -- Sunday's game has Kamsack at Bowsman to play the Axemen. Sorry about that!

In Bowsman on Friday evening, the Valley Axemen edged Porcupine Plain 7-5, with the insurance goal coming with 16 seconds left, likely an empty-netter. Kelly Gray had three goals for the winners, and Darren Miller added a pair.
 
For the Blues, defenceman Jordan Sinclair continued his fine play-making with four assists, lifting his league-leading assists total to 28. League-leading scorer, Donnie Melnyk, scored two goals and added an assist. It looks like Melnyk, with one game left, will certainly win the scoring title.
 
There are two more games tonight -- Kamsack @ Hudson Bay, as well as Kelvington @ Porcupine. The regular league commitments wrap up Sunday with Kamsack @ Bowsman for a 3:00 game against the Axeman.

Friday's result demonstrated how closely-contested the playoffs promise to be.
All-Star Result

     The Fishing Lake Hockey League took one on the chin Saturday evening at the Gallagher Centre in Yorkton as they were bounced 15-7 by the Triangle Hockey League in an All-Star Game between the two rival leagues.
    
    There were obviously some big scoring totals for the winning side, but they only had seven different goal scorers. Scott Woytas (Esterhazy) led the way with three goals and two assists. Jon Jensen (Bredenbury) had a three-goal performance. Ashley Howie and Brad Hickman (both of Rocanville) both chipped in two goals and two assists. Logan Dew (Kipling) and Cody Bowtell (Langenburg) both had three points, including a pair of goals. Everett Bear (Ochapowace) set up four goals. The other marker came from Don St. Marie (Bredenbury).

     For the FLHL, R.J.Cochrane (Kamsack) scored in the first, and  Beau Purves (Hudson Bay) in the second. The FLHL trailed 4-1 and 7-2 by periods, and the third was a shootout as the winners outscored the FLHL 8-5, with three of their goals coming in the final 1:04. The third period saw FLHL goals scored by Bradyn Melrose (Kelvington) and Scott Effa (Kamsack), both with two, and Ryan Bartle (Porcupine Plain). Effa had one helper for a three-point game.  Scott Vaughan (Hudson Bay), Donnie Melnyk (Porcupine Plain), and Daniel Hope (Kelvington) all had two assists. Bartle and Cochrane both added one assist for two-point games.

    Hudson Bay Hunters coach Gene Gel coached the FLHL All-Stars and felt that all players represented the league with class. He was disappointed in the result, but said the THL deserved the win because they took advantage of their chances and put the puck in the net. Both leagues have talented players. 
 
    Thanks to all the players who represented their league, and hopefully the rivalries will be resumed within the Fishing Lake League in a way that is competitive, but fair. Life is too short for playoff series filled with bitterness.

     This coming weekend is the final one for the regular season as there are four make-up games. The Survivor Series will get underway the next weekend, so three teams will be sitting for awhile.

     


Make-up games
Posted By: Gene
Saturday, January 18, 2014

I am showing there should be four games to make up on the weekend. On Friday, Porcupine Plain goes to Bowsman for a game with the Axemen. On Saturday, Kamsack is in Hudson Bay, and Porcupine Plain hosts Kelvington. On Sunday, Kamsack goes to Bowsman to meet the Valley Axemen in a game with huge final standing significance. 
 

Site problems

Saturday, January 18, 2014

I have entered the Porcupine Plain @ Kamsack game stats three times and it will not work for me. There will be no game summary, I guess, because I have tried everything that I know to enter the game. There is a game sheet that seemed to work. The standings and the individual statistics have been updated. 
 
Don't put too much stock into the team penalty minutes, because those have not been corrected all season. When these games won't enter, the standings won't update and there will not be a summary, but the individual stats do enter. If I enter the game three times, like today, then I have to go back and individually adjust each player in the game. Very time-consuming, and very, very annoying! Hopefully the stats are correct in the end.

Th Kamsack Flyers upended the visiting Porcupine Plain Blues 10-7 in some high-scoring FLHL action Friday. Michael Fedoruk scored three straight goals for the Flyers who clawed back from a 5-1 first period deficit. The Flyers played very well through the last part of the game. With difficulty the stats were updated. You have to click on game sheet, as there is no game summary.

All-Star Changes

Tuesday, January 14, 2014

 Kamsack has been forced to change its participation in Saturday's All-Star Game. Unfortunately, Devin Seversen has pulled out due to his uncle's funeral. Robert John Cochrane and Brooks Cochrane will now be attending the game with Scott Effa and Jordan Vogel.
All-Star Game Saturday
Posted By: 9728
Sunday, January 12, 2014

    The Fishing Lake Hockey League is quickly winding down, but there will be a brief interlude this weekend with league participation in an All-Star Game in Yorkton, between the FLHL stars and the rival Triangle Hockey League.

    The game will be held Saturday, January 18 in Yorkton at the Gallagher Centre with a start time of 7:30. This has proven to be a great fundraiser for both leagues in the past. Each FLHL team has named 4 players -- 2 forwards, one defenceman and one other player, depending on the teams supplying goaltenders. Both teams will be supplied with jerseys sponsored by Mosaic.

     Some FLHL players declined the invitation for a variety of reasons, but each team was required to fill their spots as the profits from the game will be used for league administration, such as paying for referees.

     Hudson Bay will be sending Captain Braden Messer as their defensive representative, along with forwards Beau Purves (30 points) and Scott Vaughan. Goaltender Derek Leidl, who leads the league with 9 wins and is second among regulars with a 4:34 GAA, will share the goaltending duties with Treven Leason, who plays with Kelvington.

    Leason will be joined by forwards Daniel Hope and Bradyn Melrose, and tough defenceman Sean Patrick. Hope has moved to second in league scoring with 36 points in 13 games.

    Valley Axemen will send rugged forwards Cramer Coulthart and Joel Mateika, slick forward Brock Jersak, and defenceman Riley Morden.

    Porcupine Plain  has named  league-leading scorer Donnie Melnyk (19 goals and 39 points), defencemen Ryan Bartle and Jordan Sinclair, along with Mike Young, who has potted 4 goals and set up 6 more in his three games with the Blues. Melnyk, Bartle, and Young all have pro experience which will add to the FLHL line-up.
 
    Kamsack has named forwards Scott Effa (32 points) and Devin Severson (19 goals) to the squad.  Defenceman Jordan Vogel will suit up, and the Flyers are expected to name one more since Brandon Whitehawk, one of the top scorers in the league has left the team to return to school.
 
     It should definitely be a great show. 
 
    
Finally...updated
Posted By: 9728
Sunday, January 12, 2014

Apologies for taking so long to update the site from the four weekend games, but the site was determined to completely ruin my Sunday. After almost eight hours, I think it is updated, but there may very well be minor mistakes. It is set up for me to just enter the info, and then the site keeps a running total. What happens often is that it hangs up after I enter a game, then I enter again, and then that game's stats are double-entered and I end up trying to check it by hand.
 
If you notice that something is really off, drop me a note (gene.hauta@sasktel.net ) and I will see what I can do. I have all the score sheets and I can manually check them if I really need to. The standings are the important thing and they are correct (as of this minute!)
 
Again apologies...but right now, I will give up this position in a heartbeat!
 
Hopefully later tonight, I can post the Fishing Lake line-up for the All-Star Game  against the Triangle League. That game is scheduled for  Yorkton this Saturday.
Has league parity arrived?
Posted By: 9827
Saturday, January 11, 2014

After a pair of interesting results on Friday, the two games on Saturday, January 11 perhaps indicate better than any other results that there is true parity in the Fishing Lake League. Porcupine Plain came into the weekend with one win to their credit and solidly in last place. But they promptly won both their games, including a 13-6 trumping of the visiting second place Valley Axemen Saturday. Their rebuilt line-up bears little resemblance to any rosters early in the season. 
 
Hudson Bay had not suffered a regulation loss in the first 13 games of the season, but after playing poorly in Kamsack and losing Friday, they were beaten 5-3 in Kelvington on Saturday. They had weakened line-ups both nights and had just 11 skaters on Saturday, but the Flyers and Wheaties were also full marks for their wins.  
 
It certainly seems evident that any team can beat any other team on any given night. That will make the playoffs very, very interesting as the championship is up for grabs.
 
There is just one weekend of make-up games left.  Remember the All-Star game against the Triangle League in Yorkton this Saturday.
Results from Friday, January 10

Friday, January 10, 2014

Two interesting results from Friday, January 10. Hudson Bay suffered their first loss in regulation as they went down to defeat in Kamsack 9-4. In Kelvington, the Wheat Kings battled through overtime with Porcupine Plain, tied at 6. The Blues won it 7-6 in the shootout for their second win of the year.
 
Since the stats guy is out of town, the details will have to be posted late on Saturday. Sorry about the inconvenience. 
 
On Saturday, January 11, Hudson Bay will be in Kelvington and Valley will be in Porcupine Plain. The season is quickly winding down.
 
The All-Star Game is in Yorkton on January 18th, and the last weekend in January will see a flurry of make-up games. 
rescheduled game

Friday, January 10, 2014

The Valley Axemen have rescheduled another postponed game. The game from December 18 will now be played Sunday, January 26 at 3:00 in Bowsman, not Minitonas. Kamsack Flyers will be the opposition.
 
The Axemen and the Porcupine Plain Blues have rescheduled a cancelled game for Friday, January 24 at 8:30 in Bowsman. This game will replace the one cancelled on Saturday, December 7. It still says Minitonas on the schedule, but this game will be played in Bowsman. I can't change the location on the actual schedule so spread the word.

Thursday, January 09, 2014

The Kamsack Flyers traveled to Bowsman for a rare Wednesday evening game against the Valley Axemen. The home side pulled out a 9-5 victory over the very short-staffed visitors, who had just 10 skaters. The win solidified Valley's hold on second.

The Hudson Bay Hunters defended home ice, winning a one-goal game at home for the second straight night as they edged Valley Axemen 5-4. Despite the nine goals, it was a great goaltending duel between Mike Smith (V) and Derek Leidl (HB). After some recent games, this was a treat to officiate and to watch as both teams just wanted to play hard-hitting hockey, evenly splitting 10 minor penalties.
 
In Kelvington, the host Wheat Kings beat the suspension-weakened Kamsack Flyers 12-1. Daniel Hope had four goals (six points) to lead the attack, while Bradyn Melrose had five points (2 goals) and Cole Melrose had three. 
 
There is a mid-week game in Bowsman on Wednesday, January 8 when Kamsack will meet the Valley. 
Playoff format
Posted By: 9827
Saturday, January 04, 2014

The playoff process for the Fishing Lake Hockey League has been released. The teams finishing 4th and 5th will hook up in a Survivor Series (best-of-three) with the winner moving on to face the regular season winner in a best-of-five, while the second place team will face off with the third place team in the other semi-final. The FLHL final is scheduled for seven games. 
 
With the recent improvements in Porcupine Plain, any of the five teams has a good chance to make a solid run if they get 'hot' at the right time. There is also the potential for some bitterly fought series, depending on the match-ups. 
All-Star Extravaganza

Saturday, January 04, 2014

The FLHL will participate in an all-star contest, pitting the stars of this league against the stars of the Triangle Hockey League. The game will be held Saturday, January 18 in Yorkton at the Gallagher Centre with a start time of 7:30. This has proven to be a great fundraiser for both leagues in the past. Each FLHL team will name 4 players -- 2 forwards, one defenceman and one other player, depending on who sends goaltenders. Both teams will be supplied with jerseys sponsored by Mosaic. Compete teams (18 skaters plus two goalies) should be released this week.

Friday, January 3 action

Friday, January 03, 2014

The Hudson Bay Hunters survived a serious scare from the rebuilt Porcupine Plain Blues who played a great hockey game January 3. The Hunters won 8-7 in overtime on a power play goal by Kyle Cowan. The Hunters moved to 10-0-1 and the Blues' record is 1-9-1, but, if they maintain a complete line-up, they will be very tough in January. They have been bolstered with seven skilled players from The Pas, most with junior and/or pro experience..
 
Valley Axemen got back on the winning track with a 6-4 victory in Kamsack.  The Axemen moved into sole possession with a 7-3-1 record, while the Flyers fell to 5-4-1, sticking onto third, but they face the 4-8 Wheat Kings in Kelvington Saturday night.
 
Saturday action will see the Hunters at home for another tough one against Valley, while Kelvington hosts Kamsack. 
 
 
Stats update
Posted By: 9827
Friday, January 03, 2014

As can be seen, there are still some unresolved issues with the stats, especially those involving the players who changed teams. That has to be fixed by the webmaster so I will contact him again.
 
There were questions about the goaltenders' records. Any stats from a shootout are not counted. Any goals in a shootout are not recorded; therefore. that is an explanation for the "shootout winner" being a player with two goals for Kelvington. Goaltenders who make it through to a shootout are rewarded with a 'tie" no matter if their team wins or loses the game. In a game settled in overtime, the goaltender gets a "W" or a "L".  This seems to be fair to all.

The Hudson Bay Hunters beat visiting Kelvington 6-2 on Saturday. Travis Dennis and Ian Munroe both scored a pair for the Hunters against the Wheat Kings, the only team to beat the Hunters through the first 11 games. Goaltender Derek Leidl posted his league-leading seventh victory of the year, stopping 43 shots. The game scheduled for Kamsack on Saturday, December 28 between Porcupine Plain and the host Flyers was cancelled at the request of Porcupine Plain.

There were two games played Friday. Hudson Bay walked into Porcupine Plain and beat the Blues 9-1. In Kelvington, the Wheat Kings showed they are back as they beat visiting Valley 7-3.

Kelvington is scheduled to play in Hudson Bay while Kamsack is to host the Blues on Saturday evening.

Thanks to the team contacts for getting the game sheets to me so promptly.
 
Kelvington avenged the loss they suffered the night before by thumping a very short-staffed Porcupine Plain team 10-2 after losing 7-2 to the Blues the night before. Bradyn Melrose pumped in a hattrick and added a helper. Daniel Hope set up 5 goals. Brodie Wearing had both goals for Porcupine Plain who trailed 3-0 and 6-0 by periods.
 
In Kamsack, the Valley Axemen got back on the winning track by beating the home ice Flyers 6-4 in Kamsack, in the first meeting of the year between the two teams. Devin Severson had three goals in a losing cause, while Valley got two from big d-man Dallas Anderson. 
 
I will fix up the split stats on the scoring leaders and on the Porcupine page as soon as I can. 
 
 The first half of FLHL has been interesting and we should expect nothing less in the second half. Hopefully everyone can have a relaxing, enjoyable, and safe holiday break.

Friday, December 20, 2013

The results are in for Friday's games. Porcupine Plain won their first game of the season, beating Kelvington 7-2. The six players that joined the team from the Hudson Bay Hunters played major roles. In Hudson Bay, the Hunters beat Valley Axemen 5-1
 
The individual stats from that game in Hudson Bay entered twice for some reason, but I seem to have corrected that as of noon Saturday.  There is an issue with the Kelvington-Porcupine Plain stats being entered (probably user error!), but SportZone is aware of the problem and is working on it. The error is definitely centred on the 'traded' players.
 
Saturday's games will see Valley at Kamsack, and P.P. in Kelvington. Team reps from Kamsack and Kelvington, please fax the game sheet to me immediately after the game (865-2468) but PLEASE text me (306-865-6456) to let me know that the fax has been sent. I need to update the site tonight.

It's that time of year when teams might have trouble finding players for a game. The game scheduled for Wednesday, Dec 18 (Kamsack @ Valley) has been postponed. Kamsack cited a lack of players for the decision. I will post the new date as soon as it is finalized.
 
Porcupine, Kamsack and Kelvington, please send your game sheets as soon as possible the night of the weekend games. Just shoot me a text (306-865-6456) when you fax (306-865-2468) so I will know to go pick it up. I want to update the site before I start holidays! 
Saturday game

Saturday, December 07, 2013

Only one game on this frosty night as Hudson Bay stayed in first place with a 7-4 win in Kamsack. 
 
I will enter results as soon as I get them, the night of the game if I get the sheet. Please fax to 306-865-2468, but also please text or call 306-865-6456 so I know when to leave the house to pick up the fax.  
 
Any more teams working to get a full set of individual pictures in to me, like Kamsack, and almost Hudson Bay? Hopefully those two trend-setters can fill in their missing players. 
 
No games until December 18, a rare Wednesday tilt.

Games for Saturday, Nov 30
Posted By: 9827
Saturday, November 30, 2013

The games for the last weekend in November are updated. There are still issues with the goalie stats, but if you click on your favourite goalie's name, and go to 'game log' those statistics appear to be correct. We are working on the records which are the most out of whack. I may have to delete and re-enter games for the people whose records are really messed up.
 
I realize keeping the game sheet is a difficult task and scorers are often under pressure. Please be neat, please be complete, and please be consistent. A recent sheet had time counting up and counting down which fooled me for a bit! Please try to record PPG, SHG, and SOG if you can. The save percentage shots are not accurate as I have to put something in that space so I am putting in 10 shots per period if I don't have accurate counts. 
Shots on Net
Posted By: 9827
Friday, November 29, 2013

Teams are urged to count and record shots on net. The program administrator believes that the problems with the goal stats stem from me not entering shots on net. I have been instructed to enter 10 shots per period against each goalie unless I have real stats to use. We might as well have an accurate shot count.
 
The website is coming together but full credit goes to Dan Pilling and his partner at Sportzone. I have fixed up a few areas myself, but mostly I'm just good at plugging numbers. Keep the game sheets coming in as soon as possible after each game and I will try to do them that night. 
Website building!
Posted By: 9827
Wednesday, November 27, 2013

The website "might" be up-to-date. It took a while to get it up for a variety of reasons, but we think we have it (mostly). There will still be some growing pains as I try to learn all the subtleties of the site. I will now keep it as current as possible. 
 
Please have some patience and lay off the criticism of league executive and the statistician unless you want to help me! There are still some problems with the stats being converted from the game sheets to the league leaders section, especially with the goalies.
 
My contact info is Gene Hauta, 865-6456 (cell) and fax 865-2468. That fax is not in my home so please text me when you send game sheets. Please do not fax a coloured sheet (especially pink) as they do not come through clearly. Please have your scorers write neatly and be complete. I am currently guessing at goalie minutes. Please record goaltender changes, and it would also be interesting to record power play goals and shorthanded goals.
