Notes from October 17th-PP's bars gym equipment and the usual drivel

Ghostrider Notes Oct 17th

The Riders lived and died via the power play last weekend. On Friday in a 3-3 tie vs the Rockies the boys scored three, Brendan Nemes had 2 and Keelan Saworski had 1. On Saturday in a 4-2 loss the Border Bruins had 3 and the Riders just 1 (Kevin Pierce) . 

If it means anything... the Riders had more shots in both games, 44-36 Friday and  34-26 Saturday.

With 7 goals and 4 assists in 7 games Keelan Saworski now leads the team in scoring, he has had at least a point in every game and at least 1 goal in his last 6. He was the Tim Horton's Player of the Week too.

Titus brothers took somewhat of a beating this weekend, Mitch got in front a hard chest high shot that hobbled him late in Friday’s game to help preserve at least a tie (and 1 point) and Owen left Saturday’s game with a leg injury and is now out for 8 weeks.

The 16 year old watch...D man Shaun Pierce is out for likely another week or so with an injury but speedy Ethan Jang is still chugging along with 3G 2A... I keep hearing shoot the f**8 puck chants from the crowds...a possibly even speedier Jordan Kromm (18yrs) also gets the same coaching from the stands.

Rider GM Craig Mohr has brought in defenceman  Eric Welford. Eric is 18 and was in the SJHL to start the season and played AAA Midget in Medicine Hat last year. Welford will wear # 26.

What that means is a defensemen may end up on the wing, Kyle Haugo has done that before and Coach Mohr says Gregg Susinski (McDonald's Practice Player of the Week) has also patrolled the wings in the past as well. Me I eat em... my favourite gym equipment, the snack bar.

Both Grand Forks and Fernie wore their pink jerseys in the warmup Saturday night then had their picture taken as a group at the end of the warmup. You don’t see that kind of thing very often. Border Bruin HC and GM Emery Olauson has sure done a great job in the Forks who are now tied for first over all in the KI with 19 points... they're not your fathers Bruins anymore.

Remember you can still bid on a jersey, just go the the Ghostrider website and click on the jersey on the RH side.

Over 500 in Elkford Friday
night, it sure turned out to be a well received game. We tried to keep the twitter feed going in Elkford but my iPhone wasn’t so smart and there was a poor signal at my end of the rink... I saw more bars in Cardston when I was there.

The Riders are in Invermere Friday and it is a scheduled radio broadcast game with Josh Hoffman at the mike...then on Saturday they host Spokane right here in Fernie. 

The Kimberley Dynamiters are now millionaires via Mike Gould who grew up in Kimberley and just gave $7.5 million to the Dynamiters and KMHA.  It's part of some money that he won in the  EuroMillions lottery  in 2008. They will be a first place team for ever... even with just using the interest. The New York Rangers before the salary cap era?

The boys helped out one time Spiritus award winner Pat Gilmar build some bike-hike trails last week.
