‘Roadkill’ describes Chiefs’ big win

The Regina Leader Post doesn’t have the stories posted from the Chiefs’ 11-1 drubbing of the Regina Pats but reporter Greg Harder shared his stories with us - one on the game, the other on Tyler Johnson’s return to Saskatchewan, a golden memory fo him. They’re on the extended entry.

News from around the WHL

There is some news around the Western Hockey League today to get fans ready for the Spokane Chiefs’ game against Everett, in its first road game of the season, at the Arena Saturday night. Check the extended for the links.

Cowen knows what he has to do

Jared Cowen is disappointed he’s not in the NHL, of course, but Spokane Chiefs teammate Tyler Johnson happily gives up the C to have the big blue liner back with the Western Hockey League team. Story here.

 

Chiefs win is just part of the news

On good thing that happens when the Spokane Chiefs venture to Kamloops for a Western Hockey League game is that in addition to a good game story from WHL guru Gregg Drinnan, there is also bonus coverage. Read about that and much more below.

 

Chiefs lose in Cowen’s return

Defenseman Jared Cowen met the Spokane Chiefs at Chilliwack on Tuesday, just in time for a 2-1 loss to the Bruins. It was his first Western Hockey League game after being sent down by the Ottawa Senators. The game story from Eric Welsh of The Chilliwack Progress is below.

By the way, Cowen was wearing the C. Does that mean Tyler Johnson’s tenure as captain was just for one game after all that hoopla last week?

Cowen a victim of numbers

Jared Cowen is headed to the coast and a Tuesday night game against Chilliwack. It’s not where he wanted to be, but it’s a definite lesson on the business side of professional sports.

The Spokane Chiefs defenseman was sent back to the Western Hockey League when age and contracts made it difficult for the Ottawa Senators to keep their 2009 first-round draft pick.

From the Ottawa Citizen, after this story about the move, is this story about the unsung veteran that got the final spot on defense. Here’s the take from the Senators’ website.

Cowen sent down

The Ottawa Senators sent 2009 first-round draft pick Jared Cowen back to the Spokane Chiefs on Saturday afternoon. The Sens’ release is below but it doesn’t say much. Also, the full box from last night’s 6-3 loss at Kootenay.

Cowen, Senators win big

Spokane Chiefs captain Jared Cowen wasn’t mentioned individually but everyone got a pat on the back after Ottawa opened the NHL exhibition season with a 5-0 thrashing of Toronto. There is this Ottawa Citizen blog comment - and by the way, Cowen is wearing No. 2.

Hopefully today there will be some information on the other two Chiefs who have not returned from pro camps, Tyler Johnson (Minnesota) and Blake Gal (Philadelphia). Otherwise, check back for our Central Division capsules later today and our first story on the Chiefs building up to Saturday’s opener at Tri-City.

And an FYI - Spokane is the only team that will not appear on one of the WHL-Shaw TV broadcasts, as broken down on Alan Caldwell’s blog, which, by the way, points out the league’s website, and therefore the teams’ websites, a new look rolled out recently, is woefully lacking at the moment.

Cowen focused at Senators’ camp

It appears Jared Cowen will start the season - well, at least the Western Hockey League season - in the National Hockey League.

The Spokane Chiefs captain, Ottawa’s No. 1 draft pick in 2009, has moved up the ladder in the Senator’s training camp because of an early injury. That information comes from Greg Drinnan’s blog and is posted below. Cowen can play nine regular-season games with the Senators, who play their first preseason game tonight, before he has to stay up as a 19-year old. Cowen is expected to at least be with Ottawa for all eight of the Sens’ preseason games, which go through Oct. 2, which is the date of the Chiefs’ home-opener.

And just like that, the Chiefs are down two defensemen since Brenden Kichton was injured while in Detroit’s camp.

I am currently in the process of putting together the short scouting reports the WHL beat writers have put together. They’ll appear here this week, starting with the Eastern Division today, finishing up with the U.S. Division on Friday when the WHL opens. Check back later today.
