Zac Robidoux is one shutout shy of his total from a year ago, in half as many starts.  Robidoux made 18 saves for his fourth shutout this season, and ninth in the last season and a half, as the Flin Flon Bombers won their fourth straight game, 5-0 in Kindersley Saturday night.

Dondre Watson had two goals and an assist to lead the way up front for the Bombers (25-10-2-2).  Nate Hooper and Eric Sinclair got them started as Flin Flon scored three times in a 2:12 span late in the first period, including two goals 13 seconds apart.  Kristian St. Onge scored a powerplay goal late in the second to round out the scoring.

The Klippers (16-23-1-0) have now played a league-high 40 games (18 remaining) and remain one point back of a playoff spot.


The remaining three games Saturday were 2-1 decisions, with the exception of an empty-net goal in Yorkton, where the Terriers skated to a 3-1 win over La Ronge.

The Yorkton win, and a Weyburn loss Saturday, puts the Terriers (18-18-3-0) into a top six spot, tied with Weyburn for 6th, with a game in hand.

Jordan Ross scored twice in the victory, and set up the opening goal by Jared Legien.  Nathan Hargrave made 22/23 saves.

Luke Lush turned away 33/35 shots for the Ice Wolves (6-27-1-4), while Craig Pejkovic spoiled Hargrave’s shutout midway through the third.  La Ronge goalies Lush and Aaron MacKay combined to stop 64/69 shots (.927%) in losses to Melville and Yorkton over the weekend.


The Humboldt Broncos completed a home and home sweep over Nipawin, winning 2-1 on the road on Saturday.

Carter Seminuk backstopped the Broncos (22-16-0-1) making 34 saves on 35 shots, with Chris Van Os-Shaw and Logan Schatz doing the scoring.

Logan Casavant opened the scoring in the first period for the Hawks (20-12-2-1) and Declan Hobbs made 23/25 saves.

The weekend’s results saw the Broncos leap-frog the Hawks into 4th place in the overall standings, and those two clubs would meet in the league Quarter-Finals if the season ended today.  The Hawks do have four games in hand, having played a league-low 35 games.


After their recent 13-game winning streak, five games seems rather modest, but the Battlefords North Stars continue to roll after a 2-1 win in Weyburn.

The Stars (32-7-0-0) are 24-2-0 in their last 26 games.

Coby Downs had a goal and an assist in Saturday’s win.  Layne Young also scored and Joel Gryzbowski made 21/22 saves.

Mike Eskra added a powerplay goal and Carter Phair turned away 29/31 shots for the Red Wings (17-18-1-4).
