Thank-You Farmers!

grainrush sept222014

Last week marked the final dinner in the field for local farmers when it came to Grain Rush 2014.  It was a lot of fun the past few weeks visiting those hard working producers in the area, and I know many of them are happy to be hitting the fields once again with all this gorgeous weather! 

 

Thanks to all our sponsors who made it possible and Seasons Family Restaurant for providing the delicious food.  As always a huge thank you on behalf of CFRY to all the farmers in the prairies who work so hard!  See you next year!

Terriers Trade History

The Terriers were busy preparing for the RBC Cup in 2013. In September Portage acquired the rights to 20 year old forward Jack Rodewald, Dane Schioler, and Brett Friesen from Virden in the trade that sent Adam Iwan the other way. In November The Dogs traded Dylan Butler and Brent Wold to Dauphin for the rights to defenseman Landon Peel, and Taylor Sanheim.

Here are the trades from 2014:

May 21 - Portage acquires 20 year old forward Garick Gray from OCN for 18 year old forward Devin Muir, and list rights to 18 year old defenseman Adam Heinemann

July 18 – Portage acquires 19 year old goaltender Justin Laforest and 19 year old forward Stephen Cooney from the Carelton Place Canadians for future considerations

July 25 – Portage acquires 19 year old forward Cameron Whyte and 18 year old defenseman Jordan Thomson from the Dauphin Kings for 19 year old forward Drake Bodie, and the list rights to 18 year old forward Landon Plett, and 18 year old defenseman Hayden Pierce.

July 25 – Portage acquires 20 year old defenseman Tanner Jago from the Winkler Flyers for 19 year old forward Cameron Whyte and 20 year old defenseman Jon Carlson and Future Considerations.

July 25 – Portage acquires 19 year old forward Joey Miller from the Soo Thunderbirds for future considerations.

Sept 9 - Portage acquires 18 year old forward Ryan Swier from the Lloydminster Bobcats for future considerations.

 

New Player Outlook

20 year old defenseman Tanner Jago has already been named the Terrier captain. He brings an immediate leadership voice, and has the ability to make a difference at both ends of the ice, especially on the powerplay. Look to see him contribute offensively as in two seasons with Winkler he had 86 pts.

19 year old right wing Stephen Cooney has RBC Cup experience, playing last year with the Carleton Place Canadians. The 6'2" forward likes to play a physical game, and can put up the points. Last season he had 19 pts in 40 games.

19 year old centre Joey Miller comes to Portage coming off a great season with the Soo Thunderbirds of the NOJHL. He scored 55 pts in 56 games, and likes to play physical and isn't afraid to go in the corners.

19 year old goaltender Justin Laforest has RBC Cup experience under his belt, as he also played for the Carleton Place Canadians last season. Last season he posted a 2.75 GAA and a .896 SV%

18 year old forward Ryan Swier played last season with the Lloydminster Bobcats in the tough AJHL. He is a defensive forward who was able to put up 12 pts in 56 games as a 17 year old.

 

Summary: The Terriers bring in forwards Gray, Miller, Swier and Cooney, defensemen Jago and Thomson, and goaltender Laforest.
The Terriers lose 6 roster players: Carlson, Bodie, Hay, Robidoux, Sanheim and Muir

The Terriers have the potential to have some important players return to the team. Sanheim, Rodewald, and Robidoux will all likely start the season in the WHL, and Gray in the USHL.
