REGINA — The NHL’s outdoor game in Regina doesn’t have a player from the province of Saskatchewan in it, or even a Western Hockey League Regina Pats alumnus.
So the player with perhaps the strongest emotional tie to Saturday’s Heritage Classic between the Calgary Flames and Winnipeg Jets at Mosaic Stadium is Flames defenceman Travis Hamonic. The 29-year-old from St. Malo, Man., played his major junior hockey for the Moose Jaw Warriors — less than an hour’s drive west of the provincial capital on the Trans-Canada and thus the traditional rival of the Pats.
YORKTON, Sask. — A Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League player who was serving a suspension for rough play on a goaltender won’t be playing for the rest of the season after appearing in a profanity-laced video.
The Yorkton Terriers released forward Greg Mulhall on Sunday and the league banned him for the remainder of the 2019-20 season.
MEDICINE HAT, Alta. — The lawyer for a former journalist convicted of robbing banks has told a sentencing in Alberta that his client was suffering from a deep depression at the time of the robberies and hadn’t been able to find work.
Stephen Vogelsang appeared in Medicine Hat Provincial Court on Monday via closed-circuit TV from Alberta’s Drumheller Institution, where he’s serving a five-year sentence for four other bank robberies in Regina and Saskatoon.
