Head Coach Scott Atkinson wanted consistency from his Dinos men's hockey team. Despite some strong outings and individual efforts, the Dinos have not yet won three games in a row. They had a chance to achieve that goal with games against the University of Saskatchewan Huskies Nov. 18-19.

"We have a good bunch of guys that really want to be successful," Atkinson said following their last victory Sat., Nov. 12. "But right now we're struggling for consistency."

Things didn't seem to be clicking on another weekend for the Dinos women's hockey team. The Dinos were at Red Deer College facing off against the Queens Thu., Oct. 27, returning home for a rematch Sat., Oct. 29.

The Dinos got off to a slow start Thursday and, after giving the Queens a few power-play goals, they were down by three heading into the third. However, the Dinos weren't about to roll over and die, waking up in the last period.

The Dinos women's hockey team's pre-season ended with a tourney at the University of Saskatchewan where things were looking up. With a 2-1 third period loss to the hometown Huskies and a hard-fought game against the University of Regina Cougars, the Dinos were blossoming into a meadow of beautiful flowers.

Alas, the fall's frost hit with a loss to the younger, stronger Saskatchewan U18 team, wilting their petals. But back in Calgary, a Chinook promised milder weather.

After winning both of their games against Regina the previous week, the Dinos went into the series atop the Canada West standings.

Nowadays, it seems like you simply can't watch NHL coverage and enjoy a beer without hearing some mumbo-jumbo about the salary cap, nonsense whining, rule changes and then some more whining. So, you turn your attention to the major junior leagues, hoping to watch some uncontroversial hockey. Then some guy decides to attack his 16-year-old teammate, knocking three teeth out in an incident that has 'lawsuit' written all over it.

Now what?

This year's Dinos women's hockey team is looking at more change than a condom dispenser in rez. Last year's assistant coach, Dean Holden, has taken over the head coach position and is excited about the upcoming year.

  Hello? Hockey?PDF files may take a moment to load

We're all human here at the University of Calgary. The return of the NHL has touched us all--saving some of us from touching ourselves. And even though pre-season didn't used to be this exciting, this year it has been a distraction big enough for your girlfriend to overlook the fact that the ring you proposed with came out of the Cracker Jack box she just opened to eat while watching the game.
