In the most recent release of the Canadian Junior Hockey League (CJHL), the Swan Valley Stampeders ranked in seventh place among the best junior teams. After some head scratching years, this really shows to be a boost of confidence in the club.

With much to be celebrated among the organization, as the Stampeders are honoring the anniversary of their 20th season.

Taurean White who spent the last 2 seasons as the Swan Valley Stampeders General Manager and Head Coach departed out west taking an Assistant Coach position with the West Kelowna Warriors in the British Columbia Hockey League (BCHL). With the vacant position, the Stampeders announced Barry Wolff would be leading the team this year in both capacities of Head Coach and General Manager.

With the season rolling, the Stampeders show to be a top team in the league. Holding the second place spot with 15 wins, 3 losses, 1 overtime loss, and 1 shootout loss, the organization is pleased with how things have turned around enormously. A high octane offense that continues to produce night in and night out can see this team make a deep playoff run if this style of play continues.

Swan Valleys Josh Tripp was the league-leading scoring to close out the month of October. Tripp spent some time playing in States, surprisingly reneged on his decision and chose to rejoin the Stampeders. With his 19 assists and 12 goals, Tripp currently ranks third in the league with 31 points. Tripp was runner-up for MJHL Player Of The Week, aiding the team to win three in a row against the Winnipeg Blues. Head Coach and General Manager, Barry Wolff credits Tripp’s ability to keep the game simple to why the Stampeders are on such a tear.

Matthew Osadick, who also made his back to Swan Valley after playing down south for a while, has 30 points on the year. In 18 games played, Osadick has netted 13 goals and earned 17 assists to sit at the fourth place right behind Tripp on the leaderboard. Osadick put on his thinking cap and discussed with Wolfe about bringing in one his close personal friends to play with the Stampeders.

Brady Goethals formerly of the Saskatoon Blades of the Western Hockey League (WHL) and Osadick who spend a lot of time training in the summers together, thought it would be a great idea to play on the same team for what will be Brady’s last year in Juniors.

A decision already proving worthy and paying dividends as Goethals has the fifth highest ppg in under 10 games with the club.

On the defensive end, Quintin Sudom’s size and strength are protecting the Stampeders very nicely in critical moments and allowing his team to stay on top of the competition and standings. Along with his blue line partner Dane Hirst, the two are great two-way hockey players who can also create offense and be ready up at the point for potential goal scoring opportunities. Both defensemen are praised by Head Coach each Barry Wolff for their top-notch vision and awareness to find the gaps against their opponents and not wasting time in executing.

9 skaters in a Stampeders uniform are averaging one point or more per game so far this season. Leading the Manitoba Junior Hockey League (MJHL) in goals per game.

This month the Swan Valley is scheduled to play three straight against the Dauphin Kings. The Kings are one game about .500 at 11-10. With the type of game the Stampeders are playings, the Kings have their work cut out for them as they’re already searching for their own levels of consistency and strength. Back to back matchups are set against the Steinbach Pistons who are 14-7-1 bring in a revamped roster to the 2018-2019 season. The Pistons are yearly contenders for the Turnbull Cup and with that type of record, this matchup is one that should be marked on the calendar.

Head Coach Barry Wolff wants his team to get better and more consistent on the defensive end. Forcing the offense to make decisions faster. Wolff, wants his club to take away the opponents chances and passing opportunities at a much higher intensity and pace. Wolff knows that come playoff time, it’s the defense that will keep them in the race for the Turnbull Cup.
