After loosing their only game this season to the Grande Prairie Storm, they have continued with their winning ways by taking the next 7 games. The last of was a 9-1 waxing of the Whitecourt Wolvories yesterday. Their record is an amazing 27 wins, 1 loss..... 8O

The two heavy weights in the AJHL north division faced off in Spruce Grove last night. The Storm and the Saints are 1 and 2 right now. The Storm dominated the first period and a half jumping outto a 2-0 lead, but the Staints had a great third period and the game ended up 4-3 in favor of the Saints.

Kulmanovsky Blanks Crusaders

2012 December 7th

It was the one thing which had eluded Nick Kulmanovsky thus far this 2012-13 season...but such is no longer the case. The 19 year old goaltender, who has played exceptionally well all season for the Grande Prairie Storm, finally has his first AJHL shut out.

Kulmanovsky kicking out 31 shots on Friday night, in front of 1785 fans at the Canada Games Arena, as the Storm blanked the Sherwood Park Crusaders 2-0. The product of Fairbanks, Alaska, had come close on several previous occasions, but was finally able to post his first "zero", as he raised his record to 13-5 on the year.

Coach Blaine Bablitz credits his first-year goaltender with much of the success the Storm are having this year. Balbitz says Kulmanovsky gives the club a chance to win even when the offence isn't clicking on all cylinders. "Nick deserves all the accolades he's getting. He's been a major part of our turn-around this season.

His great lateral movement is key to slamming the door shut on our opponent's scoring chances." Marc-Etienne Drapeau got the scoring started for the home side just 3:32 into the first period. However, that would be it for any more goals until Ryan Matthews found the open net in the last half minute of play. Matthews was the only Storm with multiple points, as he also assisted on Drapeau's goal.

Neither powerplay was able to get much sustained presssure, as the Crusaders went 0-for-5 and the Storm were scoreless in four opportunities. Coach Bablitz likes his club's chances any night where their penalty killers can stiffle the opposing powerplay. "The PK unit was effective tonight, as guys were rotating well and getting into the lanes to block shots. We feel that any time where we can be 100% on the penalty kill, the odds of winning the game are heavily in our favour."

Despite the win, the Storm remain five points back of Spruce Grove for top spot in the AJHL North, as the Saints also won, edging Whitecourt 3-2. Grande Prairie, however, still has five games in hand on Spruce Grove. The victory was also the Storm's first in three tries this season against the Crusaders, after falling twice previously this season in Sherwood Park.

The two clubs meet again Saturday night at the Canada Games Arena. Game time is 7:30.

Storm / Saints Split the weekend, Taqa Teddy Bear Toss Huge Success!

2013 January 6th

The top two teams in the AJHL Noth split a weekend set, with the Storm getting the 6-3 win over the Saints on Saturday Night. The Taqa Teddy Bear Toss was a huge success, with upwards of 1000 bears hitting the ice before heading to the QE2 Hospital Childrens ward. $1630 cash was also raised for Odyssey House, with Taqa North topping that up to an even $2000. The Storm now hit the road for a 3 game trip before returning home Friday January 18th vs. the Olds Grizzlies.

The Storm were eliminated by the Sherwood Park Crusaders in their first round best of five series, 3 games to 1.

The second place Storm were very undisciplined in the two games in Sherwood Park as the seventh place Crusaders scored their series winning goal on their ninth power play of the game. Can't win games in the penalty box!

A very disappointing playoff after such a great regular season.

Season Done

2013 March 9th

For the Grande Prairie Storm, it just wasn't to be. An excellent regular season, which saw the club put on a late charge to finish in second place, ended up going to waste with a first round playoff upset by the Sherwood Park Crusaders.

Saturday night in Sherwood Park, the Crusaders nipped the Storm 3-2 to win their opening round best of five series three games to one. The Crusaders did exactly what you have to to pull off an upset---splitting the first two games in Grande Prairie, before sweeping back-to-back contests at home.

After a scoreless first period, the Crusaders tallied twice in the second. Ryan Baskerville would tie the game up in the third, as he scored two goals within a 51-second span. However, just a couple minutes later, Sherwood Park would go back out in front with what proved to be the game winner.

In the final analysis, the Storm simply lost too many key players during the season, after an eleven game winning streak back in November had the city thinking about another AJHL championship run. Heart-and-soul captain Taylor Cote and talented forward Sam Lawson were both lost for the year with concussions, while star forward Marc-etienne Drapeau left to go to college at Christmas time.

So, while the Storm pack away their equipment for the summer, the Crusaders move on for a second round meeting with first place Spruce Grove. The Saints had a bye in the opening round of the playoffs.
