The Regina Pats have been busy lately making changes to their roster.
After their 3-1 win over the Moose Jaw Warriors on Sunday the team announced that they've traded a fourth round draft pick in the 2014 Bantam Draft to the Calgary Hitmen for defenceman Jesse Zgraggen.
Zgraggen will join the team as they begin a long road trip in Lethbridge on Wednesday. When he does, Zgraggen will bring some much needed size to the Pats back-end.
The Regina Pats returned to the win column with a 3-1 win over the Moose Jaw Warriors on Sunday afternoon.
The Pats are undefeated on the season against their Trans-Canada rivals, beating them in all four meetings so far this year.
The Swift Current Broncos spoiled Saskatoon’s third period lead Saturday night, scoring six goals in the final 20 minutes to prolong Saskatoon’s four-game losing streak.
Blades’ forwards Collin Valcourt scored twice on either side of Matt Revel’s natural hat-trick getting Saskatoon to a comfortable 5-1 lead after 40 minutes, but it wasn’t enough as the high-powered Broncos didn’t give up in front of their home fans, rallying six times in the third period for a thrilling 7-6 finish.
The Roughriders regular season had a rough ending.
The Green and White lost their final game of the season 30-26 to the Edmonton Eskimos Saturday at Mosaic Stadium.
The good news is that the outcome of the game didn't matter too much to the Riders who will be hosting the B.C. Lions next Sunday in the West Semi-Final no matter what. Even though the game didn't much of anything, head coach Corey Chamblin wasn't too pleased with his team's effort after the game.
The University of Manitoba Bisons pulled out a 37-36 win over the University of Saskatchewan Huskies in a thrilling Canada West semi-final on Friday night at Investors Group Field in Winnipeg.
A struggling penalty kill continues to plague the Saskatoon Blades who now find themselves on the losing end of three straight games; losing to Swift Current Friday, 5-3.
On a night where the Blades saluted the original team by wearing replica jerseys from the first Blades team from 1964, the Bridge City crew couldn’t channel the energy at Credit Union Centre and turn it into a victory for the home fans.
Swift Current jumped to an early lead with goals from Colby Cave and Zac Mackay in the first period.
The Riders are set to close out the 2013 regular season against the Edmonton Eskimos.
It's a game that doesn't really mean much as the Riders will finish second in the west no matter what. Saskatchewan is guaranteed to host the B.C. Lions in the West semi-final next week while the Eskimos will finish last in the West and miss the playoffs.
So the game may have the feel of a pre-season match-up with nothing on the line. It will likely look that way too with a number of starters sitting it out and others getting a chance to play that normally wouldn't.
A new reality show debuting Friday night will give a glimpse into the very busy lives of two Regina brothers who are living on top of the snow-dusted world.
McMorris & McMorris is an MTV Canada show that follows brothers Mark and Craig as they compete in the snowboarding world, but it doesn't stop there. Click here to watch the trailer for the show.
"It's 10 per cent snowboarding and 90 per cent, I guess, craziness," said Craig McMorris a few days before the show's television premiere.
Darian Durant will not be staring at quarterback for the Riders Saturday afternoon against the Edmonton Eskimos.
The move shouldn't come as much of a surprise to anyone who has seen practice at all this week as Durant's helmet has spent more time attached to his belt or on the ground than on his head. That being said, Head Coach Corey Chamblin didn't want to say much of anything when asked about it.
"I don't expect (Durant) to see much time, if any at all," said Chamblin.
A new initiative throughout Saskatchewan schools is taking football from the field directly to the classroom.
Students from Kindergarten to Grade 12 from over 1,000 schools around the province are seeing the 101st Grey Cup Festival and the CFL's championship game incorporated into their curriculum through a new education supplement. The effort is aimed at helping them get into the spirit of the upcoming "Celebration in Rider Nation."
