those of you that missed it, it sucks to be you. The 2015/2016 KALI
GAME was an epic clash of young, 19 of them, vs old, 17 of them.
The young guys may have pulled off the upset but there was a late goal
that might have tied things up. It was so loud with all the 'fans in
the stands with contracts in their pockets' who could hear if the horn
went or not. Some great faces and stories from past and future Royalamainiacs.
I hope I can figure the picture thing on the site so I can post a few
pictures. But if not they will be up on
March 17 - 8:15 @ Confederation Arena is the site of the 2015/16 Kali
Game. Sounds like quite an event - that is if this season Royals can
put together a strong enough team. See you there.
have 6 Royals shinny slots (our practice times) up until March 17th.
Come one and all, bring out the Royalamainiacs, everyone is welcome
- If there is some interest we could play a Kali game on the last slot.
Let me know. - Pictures will be in April I'll let you know when after
I hear about exam schedules.
another season of Royals Hockey has come to a close with our 3-4 loss,
good luck to the Hawks. Logan Walters, Taylor Shields and Chad Coulombe
scored our goals, from Ryan Rosich, Craig Hole, Logan Walters, Bryce
Kneller and Mik Mykietyshyn. Shots 46-35, PP 1-4 and PK 4-4. The battle
was there as was the effort but we fell short. Great efforts from Shuks
and all 5 D-Men who played the last 2 games. Our graduating players
Mik, Heddle, Farquhar and Chad, thanks for your smarts, leadership,
fun conversations, efforts and overall great guys to be around, you
will be missed but not forgotten. What a crazy good season, from ridiculously
skillful goals and saves to the walking wounded. It was a season unlike
any other. Things went from the highest of highs to the lowest of lows,
then we fought back and finished strong. The things that went right
far out last the ones that went wrong. But needless to say, we need
to eat more steak and drink more milk. See everyone in the fall.
we came close but let things slip away 5-6 in OT. Goals by Taylor Shields,
James Patterson (2), Chad Coulombe and Brenden Klutke with assists from
Brenden Klutke (2), Mik Mykietyshyn (2), Ryan Rosich, Liam Skitch (2),
Zac Laiss, Tyler Heddle and Chad Coulombe. Shots 45-42, PP 0-4 and PK
4-5. We battled hard with our short staffed defense and made lots of
plays. Great support from our forwards kept us in the lead, but things
went wrong in the 3rd and we didn't recover. Our Write-In Royalamainiac
was Kevin Elkow. (9).
the result we wanted 3-4 out in the Fort. Derek McWhinnie, Brenden Klutke
and Mitch Cunningham scored our goals. From Scott Punger, Peter Lamont,
Logan Walters, Brenden Klutke and Mik Mykietyshyn. Shots 41-37, PP 2-8
and PK 5-8. Look at that, the penalty totals were the same at 8, it
might be hard to believe if you were at the game. We lost a little focus
in the 1st but kept fighting back. Our Write-In Royalamainiac was Altan
Real Royals came to the rink and skated away with a 8-3 win over the
Hawks in game 1 of the best of 5 series. Mik Mykietyshyn scored our
1st 4 goals of the game, with Peter Lamont, Ryan Rosich, Derek McWhinnie
and Carter Shukalak (his 1st Royals goal). Assists to Mitch Cunningham
(2), Brenden Klutke (3), Chad Coulombe (2), Zac Laiss, Bryce Kneller,
Connor Farquhar, Craig Hole (2), Liam Skitch, Tyler Heddle and Scott
Punger. Shots 51-32, PP 3-5 and PK 6-7. With special guest music man
'Ruptown' spinning the hits the boys played hard and smart. The time
off helped our walking wounded mend and it showed up on the scoreboard.
The belt went to Mik. Our Write-In Royalamainiac was Kevin Bain. (9).
Feb. 12 6:00 the
last ever Royals Pre Playoff Air Hockey Championship will take place.
#RAHT2016 This event is open to all Royalamainiacs. I will record the
team names as they come in. 1st entry 'MTC 4 Lyfe', 'The Dekes of
Hazard', 'The Duo', 'Whale Hunters', 'Alpha Q', 'Team Shitty', 'A Team',
'A Tribe Called MA', 'Dick Skin', 'Dumb and Dumber'. Another epic
tournament took place with 'A Tribe Called MA' (Mitch, Andy) facing
off against 'The Duo' (Peter, Liam), in the final. Both teams came into
the game undefeated with 'The Duo' coming out on top. There were a lot
of happy faces.
the 1st time in a long time we finished 1st place in the East Division
- with our 2-1 OT win over Strathcona. Taylor Shields got us started
and Liam Skitch ended it in OT. Assists to Craig Hole and Bryce Kneller.
Shots 47-29, PP 0-1 and PK 0-1. We played hard and smart but left our
soft hands at home. We have earned a 1st round bye and will wait and
practice till we get our chance. We might be a couple players healthier
by the time the playoffs start, but not completely.
need to bump for 60 and everything will be good - we didn't and lost
4-5 to the Knights. Our goals came from James Patterson, Taylor Shields
and Chad Coulombe (2). And the only assist of the night to Carter Shukalak.
Shots 32-47, PP 0-1 and PK 2-3. When the game got tight and the time
was running out we got intense and carried the play - but by then it
was to little to late - 60-60-60.
came out with a solid effort and skated through the crap to a 3-0 win
over the Regals. Scoring our goals were Scott Punger, Bryce Kneller
and James Patterson. Assists to Mik Mykietyshyn, Craig Hole, Shane Bosomworth,
Peter Lamont, Liam Skitch and Tyler Heddle. Shots 44-22, PP 0-5 and
PK 5-5. We were hard to play against and it showed with the amount of
yapping that was directed at our box. Billy earned his 1st win and 1st
shutout as a Royal. Congratulations to James, Mitch, Shane and Jenn
on being awarded Scholarships from The Friends of Alberta Junior Hockey
are learning some tough lesson's these days as we lose 2-7 to the Mustangs.
Chad Coulombe and Ryan Rosich scored our goals, from Mik Mykietyshyn
and James Patterson. Shots 30-44, PP 0-3 and PK 5-5. Maybe we need to
get more penalties early in games to amp up our compete level. We are
still seeing positives among all these lesson's we are learning...
is light at the end of the tunnel, but we just haven't got to it yet,
as we lose 3-4 to Fort Sask. Peter Lamont started the scoring with Justin
Shimizu and Logan Walters chipping in. Setting them up were Liam Skitch,
Logan Walters, Scott Punger, Taylor Shields, Craig Hole and Taylor Shukalak.
Shots 31-34, PP 1-5 and PK 2-2. Smiles are already being seen in the

oars in the water and continue to pull together.
aren't playing our best at the moment, but we will be soon, 5-7 to the
Chiefs. Peter Lamont scored 2 times with singles to Ryan Rosich, Logan
Walters and Shane Bosomworth. Assists to Peter Lamont, Taylor Shields,
Carter Shukalak, Scott Punger, Mitch Cunningham and Mik Mykietyshyn.
Shots 50-33, PP 1-6 and PK 3-4. We need to play better defense, in all
3 zones, and shoot the puck into the net (not the posts and goalies
did we suck and lost 0-5 to the Riggers. Shots 26-47, PP 0-5 and PK
5-6. The only thing on the weekend that was worse than this effort was
the All Star Game Saturday.
to our Rookie All Stars - Derek McWhinnie, Taylor Shields and Craig
Hole. Also Congrats to our All Stars - Mik Mykietyshyn, Chad Coulombe,
Brenden Klutke, Mitch Cunningham (Tyler Heddle replaced him), Ryan Rosich
and Taylor Shukalak.
the result we wanted 2-4 to the Icemen. Peter Lamont and Chad Coulombe
scored our goals from Logan Walters, Connor Farquhar and Brenden Klutke.
Shots 31-41, PP 0-2 and PK 2-2. Mental mistakes suck being forgetful
is suckyer. Lets pick up the slack.
came for 2 points and got them the hard way with a 5-4 win in overtime
against the Jets. We didn't start scoring till the 2nd period as David
Henderson (1st as a Royal) got us going, Shane Bosomworth, Brenden Klutke
and Mik Mykietyshyn (winner on a breakaway). The game sheet says that
these guys assisted the goals (for the 2nd game in a row I might disagree
on some on them) Bryce Kneller (2), Shane Bosomworth, David Henderson,
Mik Mykietyshyn (2), Chad Coulombe, Brenden Klutke, Mitch Cunningham
and Taylor Shukalak. Shots 32-29, PP 1-5 and PK 5-5. We need to start
better, being slow isn't a good way to begin a game. But as usual we
weathered the storm and got better as the game played on.
on track with a 10-0 win against the Regals. After a slow start Bryce
Kneller started the scoring, followed by, Liam Skitch, Mik Mykietyshyn
(2), Chad Coulombe, Zac Laiss, Logan Walters, Scott Punger (1st as a
Royal), Peter Lamont and Ryan Rosich. Assisted by David Henderson, Shane
Bosomworth, Ryan Rosich, Derek McWhinnie (2), Brenden Klutke (3), Mitch
Cunningham, Mik Mykietyshyn (2), Chad Coulombe (2), Taylor Shields (2),
Peter Lamont, Liam Skitch (2), Logan Walters and Scott Punger. Shots
52-26, PP 3-7 and PK 2-2. The new guys in the line up made us faster
and that's a good thing.
all reports 2016 was a sloppy start and the scoreboard said 3-5 St.
Albert. Brenden Klutke, Liam Skitch and Tyler Heddle scored from Mik
Mykietyshyn, Chad Coulombe, Zac Laiss, Craig Hole, Taylor Shields and
Justin Shimizu. Shots 21-36, PP 0-3 and PK 4-5.
had a happy group of Royalamainiacs in our 'Room de Royal' after our
6-2 win over the Flyers. Derek McWhinnie started the scoring with Liam
Skitch, Bryce Kneller (2), Brenden Klutke and Ryan Rosich into the empty
net. Assists to Liam Skitch, Mitch Cunningham, James Patterson, Zac

Taylor Shields and Derek McWhinnie. Shots 41-36, PP 1-3 and PK 3-3.
We gritted it out and earned the 2 points. NICE!! We had a great time
seeing the Royalamainiacs and the Old Royals who were able to make it
out after the game.
Party Friday and 'Room de Royal' Sunday!!
gutsy game our Royals played and were rewarded with a 7-5 win on the
northside against the Warriors. Bryce Kneller (2), Derek McWhinnie,
Justin Shimizu (2) and Liam Skitch (2) did all the scoring. Assists
to Ryan Rosich, James Patterson, Jake Schutz (2), Derek McWhinnie and
Tyler Heddle. Shots (I think, the game sheet was a mess) 30-57, PP 1-4
and PK 3-4. We were a few guys short and had to play a very unRoyal
like style but the result was what we wanted. I think a bunch of guys
played some positions they haven't played in a long time, but it worked.
could have played harder but chose not to and the result is a 1-4 loss
to the Red Wings. Brenden Klutke scored our only goal from Liam Skitch
and Mitch Cunningham. Shots 23-40, PP 1-3 and PK 2-3. It's strange but
when we have played these guys, over the last couple seasons, the rules
change and no penalties are called. That wasn't why we didn't play hard
enough to win just an interesting attachment to the game.
skating team won 3-2 over the Icemen. Mitch Cunningham scored all 3
of our goals from Liam Skitch (2), Brenden Klutke (2), Andy Fox and
Ryan Rosich. Shots 39-32, PP 3-8 and PK 2-3. It was a funny game that
didn't need to be that close. But it was a great effort by all our Royals.
2 points and improving on how smart we play is great.
win 9-3 over Riggers. Ryan Rosich with the sweet hattrick, Chad Coulombe
(2), James Patterson, Brenden Klutke (2) and Peter Lamont. Assisting
the goals Liam Skitch (2), Derek McWhinnie (2), Mitch Cunninham (3),
Ryan Rosich, Mik Mykietyshyn (3), Zac Laiss, Bryce Kneller, Craig Hole
(2), Tyler Heddle, Justin Shimizu and Jaden Beck. Shots 51-36, PP 4-10
and PK 7-7. The game was a lot closer than the score, they got a couple
penalties and we blew it up. 2 points are good.
2 good things about playing on a Sunday afternoon are winning 4-3 over
the Bruins and getting to see the Esks win the Grey Cup. Peter Lamont
(2) scored the 1st and 4th goals, Liam Skitch and Chad Coulombe the
others. I thought we passed the puck more than this but not on the sheet
- Justin Shimizu, Andy Fox, Derek McWhinnie and Mik Mykietyshyn the
assists. Shots 43-47, PP 1-4 and PK 4-4. We played like we were asleep.
trip out to St. Albert was a successful one as we skated to a 7-5 win.
Liam Skitch (2) started and finished the scoring with James Patterson,
Mitch Cunningham, Brenden Klutke and Chad Coulombe (2). Assists to Ryan
Rosich, Mik Mykietyshyn (2), Brenden Klutke (2), Craig Hole, Chad Coulombe,
Mitch Cunningham, James Patterson and Shane Bosomworth. Shots 23-29,
PP 2-6 and PK 5-5. We started the game a little short on defense and
got shorter as the game went on, way to step up Brenden. We lost a Royalamainiac
last night Don Hyland way to soon RIP.
found a good reason to play hard and 12-2 over the Knights was the result.
Ryan Rosich scored the 1st and 12th goals with 1 more in-between for
the hat trick, Derek McWhinnie (2), Taylor Shields, James Patterson
(2), Liam Skitch (2), Mik Mykietyshyn and Chad Coulombe. Assist to Craig
Hole, James Patterson (5), Bryce Kneller, Taylor Shields, Derek McWhinnie
(3), Zac Laiss (3), Liam Skitch (2), Ryan Rosich (2), Mitch Cunningham,
Brenden Klutke (2), Chad Coulombe, Mik Mykietyshyn and Peter Lamont.
They came with a short lineup and we got better as the game went on,
tough one to watch.
never quit and never back down and win 7-5 in Fort Sask. James Patterson
started the scoring, Mik Mykietyshyn, Chad Coulombe, Brenden Klutke,
Liam Skitch, Taylor Shields and Ryan Rosich. Assists to Ryan Rosich
(2), Liam Skitch (2), Brenden Klutke, Zac Laiss, Mik Mykietyshyn (2),
Derek McWhinnie and Bryce Kneller. Shots 27-40, PP 1-5 and PK 4-5. We
had a huge start then backed off a bit, for some reason?. Weathered
the storm and put the peddle down in the 3rd.
over Bruins, nice way to end the weekend. Ryan Rosich started the scoring,
Derek McWhinnie, Mitch Cunningham (2), Brenden Klutke, Peter Lamont
and Chad Coulombe (4). Assists to Andy Fox (2), Mitch Cunninham (3),
Connor Farquhar, Jaden Beck, James Patterson, Liam Skitch (2), Mik Mykietyshyn
(3), Chad Coulombe, Tyler Heddle (2), Zac Laiss, Peter Lamont and Brenden
Klutke (2). Shots 56-25 PP 4-9 and PK 7-7. I was home sick, it looks
like there is a ground swell for a bloody coup starting.
you want to be the best you must play your best, we didn't and lost
6-5 to Wetaskiwin. Chad Coulombe scored the hattrick with Mik Mykietyshyn
and Mitch Cunningham the others. Assists to Mik Mykietyshyn (3), Brenden
Klutke (3) and Chad Coulombe. Shots 33-40, PP 3-5 and PK 2-3. Even though
we hit a ton of posts we didn't compete the way we must in order to
win and get better.
weekend sweep we were looking for was accomplished with our 8-3 win
against the Chiefs. Logan Walters shot 3 pucks in the net, Ryan Rosich
2, with singles to Chad Coulombe, Craig Hole and Brenden Klutke. Setting
the goals up were Peter Lamont, Connor Farquhar, Mitch Cunningham (2),
Mik Mykietyshyn (3), Brenden Klutke, Shane Bosomworth (2), Zac Laiss,
Liam Skitch, Andy Fox, Derek McWhinnie, Taylor Shields and Chad Coulombe.
Shots 50-35, PP 2-6 and PK 4-5. Other than the 1st 5 minutes of the
game we played smart and hard. The Round Belly's were smiling around
the table after the game.
Friday night win 7-4 over Leduc. Derek McWhinnie and Chad Coulombe both
scored 2 goals with Liam Skitch, Brenden Klutke and Ryan Rosich getting
the others. Assists going to Ryan Rosich, Andy Fox, Taylor Shields,
Mitch Cunningham, Chad Coulombe, James Patterson, Liam Skitch, Mik Mykietyshyn
(2), Craig Hole, Justin Shimizu, Zac Laiss and Connor Farquhar. Shots
31-42, PP 0-5 and PK 6-8. We had a little hiccup in the 2nd period but
played a pretty solid game and earned the 2 points.
a difference a couple sleeps can make, we woke up and skated to a 6-2
victory over the Hawks. Ryan Rosich started the scoring with Taylor
Shields, Liam Skitch (natural 2nd period hattrick) and Chad Coulombe.
Assisting the goals were James Patterson (3), Tyler Heddle, Justin Shimizu,
Derek McWhinnie, Craig Hole, Andy Fox, Mitch Cunningham, Ryan Rosich,
Brenden Klutke and Mik Mykietyshyn. Shots 55-30, PP 2-6 and PK 7-7.
We became our hard skating, hard passing and having fun playing hockey
team again. Lets hope I have corrected everybody's names, spelling has
never been a strong suit of mine.
is no joy in mudville as we lose 2-6 to the Knights. Liam Skitch and
Ryan Rosich scored our goals from Taylor Shields, Peter Lamont, Liam
Skitch and Mac Laiss. Shots 36-37, PP 0-4 and PK 4-7. Ouch we weren't
ready to play and couldn't find that switch to turn us on until it was
to late. Have Fun and Play Hard are great words.
wasn't the result we were looking for as we fell 3-5 to the Mustangs.
Chad Coulombe scored all 3 of our goals and a couple were highlight
reel ones. Assists to Craig Hole, Derek McWhinnie, Brenden Klutke (2),
Tyler Heddle and Liam Skitch. Shots 31-50, PP 1-5 and PK 7-7. We weren't
focused enough to block out a couple whistles and that led us down a
bad path. But we got better in a couple areas and exposed in a couple
good news is that we won 7-2 and the roads were great. Chad Coulombe
(2), Peter Lamont (2), Liam Skitch and Mik Mykietyshyn (2) scored our
goals. From Mik Mykietyshyn (2), Brenden Klutke (3), Zac Laiss, Chad
Coulombe (3), Ryan Rosich (3) and Liam Skitch. Shots 42-38, PP 2-6 and
PK 1-2. For the first time this season we played with a short bench
and for the first time in his career Mik got a Gordie Howe hattrick.
a lot of goals scored on the weekend as we skated to a 10-5 win over
the Icemen. Logan Walters scored our 1st and 2nd shorthanded goals of
the season with Mik Mykietyshyn (4), Chad Coulombe (2), Liam Skitch
and Ryan Rosich. Assists to Craig Hole, Brenden Klutke (4), Andy Fox,
Chad Coulombe (2), Simon Kiiskila, Mitch Cunninham and Zac Laiss (2).
Shots 54-36, PP 2-5 and PK 3-5. We played hard, smart and got better
as a team. Staying focused and away from the crap is going to take us
a long way. The only hiccup on the weekend was that we let our goalies
down a bit and let the bad guys have too much puck time in our zone,
after the games were out of reach.
12-3 out in Stony Plain. Lots of goals starting with Liam Skitch (2),
Mik Mykietyshyn, Brenden Klutke, Mitch Cunningham (2), Chad Coulombe
(2), Ryan Rosich, Derek McWhinnie, Shane Bosomworth and with his 1st
goal as a Royal (even if the gamesheet doesn't indicate it) Craig Hole.

Chad Coulombe (3), Mik Mykietyshyn (6), Logan Walters, Craig Hole, Andy
Fox, Zac Laiss (2) and Ryan Rosich. Shots 60-25, PP 9-16, PK 3-4. Telling
the ref what you think of him never works. Not much to say only that
one team stayed focused and just wanted to play hockey.
play to take care of the top line and we did that 5-1 against the Riggers.
Liam Skitch got our first 2 goals with Chad Coulombe, Taylor Shields
(his 1st as a Royal) and Ryan Rosich. Assists to Taylor Shields, James
Patterson (2), Mik Mykietyshyn, Mitch Cunningham (2), Liam Skitch and
Peter Lamont. Shots 41-26, PP 0-6 and PK 2-2. We played with hands of
stone, as the puck kept bouncing when we passed or tried to receive
a pass. We played fast but are still looking for the consistent effort.
made it across the river safely and were rewarded with a 5-1 victory
over the Red Wings. You just never know when you travel north. Peter
Lamont scored in the 1st period, then James Patterson, Ryan Rosich,
Justin Shimizu and Mik Mykietyshyn. Making the passes - Ryan Rosich,
Derek McWhinnie, Mik Mykietyshyn, Mitch Cunningham, Taylor Shields and
Chad Coulombe. Shots 31-36, PP 1-2 and PK 2-3. A fast paced and fast
played game that had a bit of everything that you would expect when
these two teams play. The Royalamainiacs were looking to get body parts
signed in-between periods, sorry there was no time for that foolishness.
was no let down in our 5-3 win over the Chiefs. Mitch (welcome back)
Cunningham started and ended the scoring with Chad Coulombe getting
the hattrick sandwiched in-between. Assists to Mik Mykietyshyn (2),
Peter Lamont, Brenden Klutke, Andy Fox, Tyler Heddle, Craig Hole and
Zac Laiss. Shots 49-31, PP 1-5 and PK 2-2. We played one of our best
periods in the 1st but only wanted to shoot the puck into the crest
of the goalie. Jaden earned his 1st win as a Royal with a great showing
in the 3rd period.
beat all the opponents (players and the ones with whistles) 6-5 out
in Morinville. Mik Mykietyshyn started the scoring with Peter Lamont,
Ryan Rosich, Brenden Klutke (2) and Logan Walters. The set up guys were
Brenden Klutke, Liam Skitch, Simon Kiiskila, Logan Walters, Andy Fox,
Tyler Heddle, Mik Mykietyshyn and Connor Farquhar. Shots 35-42, PP 3-4
and PK 9-9. The shots are a bit misleading but a quick look at the special
teams numbers will explain that. We got better as the game went on and
once we tilted the ice there was no looking back.
comeback fell short and we lost 5-7 to the Warriors. Derek McWhinnie
(2), James Patterson, Mik Mykietyshyn and Liam Skitch scored the goals.
From Chad Coulombe (2), Mik Mykietyshyn, Logan Walters (2), Liam Skitch,
Peter Lamont, Bryce Kneller, James Patterson and Zac Laiss. Shots 35-43,
PP 0-4 and PK 3-4. We played uninspired hockey till late and brought
the score back to 1 but an empty netter sealed the deal. It's surprising
that we didn't carry the emotion of Friday's game to our home game.
quit is a great team mantra - 6-5 in a shoot out over the Hawks. We
were down most of the game but always found a way to come back. Derek
McWhinnie (2), Mik Mykietyshyn, Brenden Klutke and Liam Skitch scored.
Assisting the goals were Chad Coulombe (3), Brenden Klutke, Mik Mykietyshyn
(2), Bryce Kneller and David Henderson. Shots 37-31, PP 0-5 and PK 4-5.
Nothing was going to stop us or slow us down not: the suspended players,
the high and from behind hits, the spears behind the play and most importantly
the scoreboard. We overcame everything and the old 2 shot breakaway
drill paid off as Liam and Chad scored and Shuks shut the door with
2 out of 3 stops. It took a few bruises on hands and bodies to get this
scoring started early and often, 10-3 was the final score in our home
opening win against the Knights. Mitch Cunningham scored a 1st period
hattrick (I can't remember one of our defencemen ever scoring 3 in one
period before - Royalamainiacs please correct my if I'm wrong), James
Patterson, Justin Shimizu (1st as a Royal), Brenden Klutke, Shane Bosomworth
(2) also his 1st Royal goals, Chad Coulombe and Mik Mykietyshyn. Assists
to Brenden Klutke (2), Derek McWhinnie, Mitch Cunningham (2), Bryce
Kneller, Taylor Shields (3), Andy Fox, Mik Mykietyshyn (2), Chad Coulombe,
Justin Shimizu (2) and Connor Farquhar. Shots 56-26, PP 2-5 and PK 4-5.
Our room didn't look very lively before the game but that didn't stop
us from going hard and Mitch kick started the fun. It was good to see
some old faces at the game. Lets hope our AWOL time keeper finds his
way back to the rink.
Great start to our
season, 7-3 was the final score over the Chiefs. Chad Coulombe started
the scoring, ended it and added one in the middle for the hat trick, Mik
Mykietyshyn (2), Logan Walters and Derek McWhinnie (his 1st as a Royal).
Assisting the goals Brenden Klutke (4), Mitch Cunningham(2), Mik Mykietyshyn,
Chad Coulombe (3), Peter Lamont (2), Bryce Kneller and Zac Laiss. Shots
34-36, PP 2-5 and PK 5-6. We started a little tight and gripped our sticks
to hard instead of just shooting the puck into the net. But once we broke
the ice off our hands we were constantly being rewarded. Team energy grew
as the game progressed and we played with more passion. On to the Royals
came to a close with a hard skating effort that was rewarded, 5-4 over
the Knights. Some very tough decisions need to be made this week, and
then get ready for Friday and Game 1!
win over the Hawks, 8-4, was a good step. Then we hiccupped on Saturday
3-6 to the Knights. Consistency and playing the way we practice will
kick in or we will be frustrated again.
strong showing by our Royals as we skated to a 8-2 win over the Knights
in pre season action. Lots of Royalamainiacs took in the action in the
middle of the long weekend. They left the rink happy and a some left
more wobbly than others. Great start, now lets get faster.
week of camp was full of competition. There were plenty of Royalamainiacs
in the stands, getting their 1st look at the new Royals. Pre season
games are up next after a relaxing weekend.
1 of camp was great. We had a good mix of players and a lot of them.
Speed was everywhere.
2015/2016 schedule page has been updated.
WAS THE COMMERCIAL THAT WE DID FOR COKE ZERO in 2013. THE ROYALS WERE
THE STARS, WITH EXTRA'S JORDAN EBERLE, DAN O'TOOLE, JAY ONRAIT AND CABBIE.
IT WAS PROBABLY A BIG DEAL FOR THOSE YOUNG SPORTS STARS. JUST TO SAY
ONE DAY I GOT TO SPEND IT WITH THE EDMONTON ROYALS!!
