Delisle honours hockey brothers with highway sign

The town of Delisle paid tribute to a pair of local hockey hall of fame brothers on Saturday with the unveiling of a new sign along the highway.

The town honoured the Bentley family by erecting the permanent sign outside the City Office to Doug and Max Bentley.

“I think it’s one of the best things the community could do to show the past, deal with the present and move onto the future,” Delisle mayor Dave Anderchek said.

Just as it did a week ago, a somber mood filled the lowest level of the Brandt Centre as the Regina Pats cleared out their lockers.

Emotional hospital departure for Bozon family

It is with great happiness that Tim Bozon is being discharged from the Royal University Hospital in Saskatoon after a remarkable recovery from meningitis.

The Kootenay Ice player and Montreal Canadiens prospect contracted the illness on March 1 after playing the Saskatoon Blades. He ended up in a medically-induced coma for nearly a month. In just three hours, he went from healthy to "almost a dead body."

Saskatoon teen trains for international diving competition

Micaiah Besler, 14, doesn't have much time for anything but school, sleep, and diving but that commitment has started to pay off.

Earlier this month, the Saskatoon teenager took down her first national diving competition in Ottawa, earning her a spot on the Canadian national team.

"I was just really excited and happy," Micaiah said.

In late April, she will be in Dresden, Germany competing against the best in the world.

Pats blow first period lead now trail Brandon 3-0

The Regina Pats season is now hanging by a thread thanks to a 5-4 loss to the Brandon Wheat Kings on Wednesday night.

The blue and white actually held a three goal lead in the first period but let it slip away. Jayce Hawryluk powered the comeback for Brandon with a hattrick including the game winner with less than five minutes to go.

Graham DeLaet gets first look at Augusta National

As Saskatchewan not-so-patiently waits for golf season to get going, the province's best golfer is preparing for the biggest tournament of his life.

Weyburn's Graham DeLaet will tee-off for the first time in two weeks at the Masters. Golf's first major is viewed by some to be the biggest and best tournament on the PGA Tour.

Saskatchewan Roughriders sign pair of receivers

The Saskatchewan Roughriders signed a pair of receivers Tuesday: import Duke Calhoun and non-import Guillaume Rioux.

Calhoun, 26, comes to Saskatchewan from the NFL. He played two seasons with the New York Giants after signing with the team in 2010. He missed all of 2012, however, after suffering an injury at the Oakland Raiders training camp. During his college years with the University of Memphis he managed 212 receptions for 2,981 yards and 19 touchdowns over the span of 49 games.

Blades part ways with head coach and GM

After 14 years with the Saskatoon Blades, general manager Lorne Molleken found it difficult to put it into words as he addressed the media for the last time.

“14 years,” Molleken said, followed by a long pause.  “Is a lifetime in one place in the hockey world.”

“Over those years as the head coach and general manager obviously a lot of great memories, things that I’ll take with me for the rest of my life.”

On Tuesday the Saskatoon Blades announced they were parting ways with Molleken and first year head coach Dave Struch.

Pats looking for answers defensively

The shovels are out in the Regina Pats dressing room as they try and find a way to dig out of the hole they've found themselves in.

Through two games in their playoff series with the Brandon Wheat Kings the Queen City Kids have given up a whopping 14 goals; a number that is simply to high to have any kind of success in pre-season hockey let alone the playoffs.

The task at hand is pretty simple right now for the Pats.

"We can't right now have bad shifts and play anything but flawless defensively," said Head Coach Malcolm Cameron.
