The Roundup, C word, Radio head KI Facebook no controversy...

The Weekly Roundup

Not much this week that we can talk about... yet... stay tuned

The C Word
Well if you haven't already heard, Head Coach and General Manager Craig Mohr announced that former Calgary AAA Midget North Star Cole Keebler  will be the Ghostriders Captain this year  in his third and final season with Riders. Keebler (95) was hampered by injuries in his first two years with the Ghost and missed a month late in the season last year but still battled hard enough to be named as the Rider's Playoff MVP with 13 points in 11 playoff games.
For the record, Cole once had Craig Mohr as a coach in minor hockey.
Sara Moulton, (like me) formerly of the Fernie Free Press, wrote up a press release on Keebler, click here to read the full story

The A Team
Several of last season's players are trying out at the JR A Level, we'll know more in a week or so how they are doing but one player we won't see is 17 year old Cavin Tilsley  Tilsley has signed with the Jr A Prince George Spruce Kings after having a pretty good season here in Fernie as a 16 year old with 33 points in 46 games. Both goalies- Jeff Orser (Calgary Canucks ) and Brandon Butler (Drumheller) are trying out at the next level as well. William Lightfoot was bitten by the 20 year old bug and was traded to Fort St John where he will also be working.

Radio Heads
The Ghostriders broadcast several of their road games on The Drive Radio in the Fernie -Sparwood area. For the last several years Kyle Christensen was doing the play by play but he moved on to a job on the coast opening up a spot and Tom Ross is the announcer who got the job. Tom has been working at the radio station in Cranbrook for the last couple of years and says he took the job because he has been a lifelong sports fan and got a taste for it while he was in College where he did the play by play for the SAIT woman's hockey team. " I'll strive to be an entertaining voice for the fans, and look forward to meeting the whole team and staff." Well we look forward to it Tom.

Fernie's broadcast schedule is below, our old buddy  Howie Ashmore will be doing the first two games then Tom takes over Sept 19.

The Kootenay Ice just hired Chris Wahl as their play by play guy after losing Jeff Hollick who had been in the booth since day one. Wahl started out doing PxP in Castlegar a few years ago before moving up to Trail then on to  Surrey. It has been interesting watching him move up over the years. Congrats to both of those guys.

If you're a Face Booker there is now a KIJHL Facebook page and it's here a nice job by the Summerland Steam's announcer Tim Hogg...  The slug who did This Week in the KIJHL last year bailed, last I seen him he was gassed and askin what is this Fecesbook
