Meet Eric, the newest member of the Satelites family.

 In May of 2017 we were contacted by Scott Godfrey, a Program Coordinator for the Autism Society in Calgary, asking us if we could help. They were running their inaugural AAFSBHL (AAFS Ball Hockey League) and were seeking merchandise donations. Their goal was to provide each participant with a jersey from a different team from anywhere in the World, and to learn about all levels of hockey. We donated a recently retired home jersey to their cause, and Eric selected ours to wear in this event.

*All of their participants have Autism*

This event has grown from 10 to upwards of 40 young people weekly experiencing one of Canada's National Sports in a safe, supported and positive Environment.

Saturday Dec. 19

    The Winnipeg Satelites game vs. the Norway House Northstars for Saturday Dec. 19 at the Billy Mosienko

Arena was cancelled, so, with that in mind and 2.5 hrs of ice time to kill, the Satelites, on the bus ride home from

their game in Lundar that night, managed to organize an impromptu alumni game featuring members of the

2005/2006 KJHL Championship Satelites team vs. current and recent members of the North Winnipeg Satelites.

        

    It was a see-saw battle between the two sides with the final score resulting in a shoot out, the final results remain

a mystery, but a great time was had by all.

 

 

2015 KJHL Scholarship Award Winner

    The Winnipeg Satelites are pleased to announce that Kevin Haines has been awarded one of

the two 2014-15 KJHL Scholarship awards handed out by the Keystone Jr. Hockey League. Kevin 

is enrolled in the Faculty of Kinesiology and Recreation Management at the U of M and plans to

pursue graduate studies in chiropractic. 

 

 

Saturday April 18

The Winnipeg Satelites held their annual awards dinner Saturday night at Alfie's Restaurant

and handed out their annual player awards as well as saying thank you to their four graduating

players. Presenting the awards were Satelites head coach Taylor Lemon and assistant coach 

Gary Duszak.

    Kyle Collins was awarded the Satelites leading scorer award after leading the Satelites with

30 goals and 38 assists for 68 points, good for second overall in league scoring.

    Scott Douglas was awarded the Satelites 2014-2015 Rookie of the Year award. After a successful high 

school career with the Kelvin Clippers of the WHSHL Scott  was invited to camps in the USHL, from there he

went to the NAHL and made the roster of the Wichita Falls Wildcats. After 14 games injuries cut short his junior 

career and after a year and a half off he came to the Satelites for the 2014-15 season where he rediscovered his

love for the game.

 

    The Satelites next award was the Hardest Working Player award and it was shared by Derek Ramage

and Bryan MacKenzie. These two players never took a shift off, it was a 100% effort every shift of every

game from the start of the season to the end.

 

    The Satelites next award went to second year player Ben Ingimundson. The "For The Boys" award goes 

to the Satelites player who demonstrates "outstanding commitment and dedication to the hockey club". 

    The Satelites Coach's Choice award was shared this year by two Satelites, Kevin Haines and Sean Murray.

This award goes to the player or players who the coaches feel they can send out in any pressure situation and

succeed.

    The Satelites Playoff MVP Award this season again went to starting goaltender Marc Hildebrand. Marc's tenacity

between the pipes gave the Satelites a chance every chance to win in the playoffs as we were in every game till the

end.

 

    The Satelites Regular Season MVP award this year went to leading scorer Kyle Collins. Kyle played in all 32 

games for the Satelites this season and even when he wasn't putting points on the board he was a major factor

in the Satelites success this season.

    And lastly, the toughest part of any season is saying goodbye to your graduating players. This

season Vinny Carriere, Jason Campbell, Kevin Haines and Kyle Collins all played their last games

as Satelites. They all played 3 great seasons with the Satelites and played an important role in who

we were as a team on and off the ice. We wish them well on all their future endeavors.

outstanding commitment and dedication to the hockey club. The "For the Boys" award was 

awarded to Bobby High.

August 2013

Winnipeg Satelites Complete Coaching Staff for the 2013/14 Season.  

      

    Head Coach Taylor Lemon is excited to add another asst. coach to his staff for the upcoming season.

Charlie Scibak will join Taylor and Cam Hildebrand on the Satelites bench.

 

    Charlie Scibak was with the Interlake Lightning Midget Provincial AAA team last season, taking over the 

head coach's position midway through the season.

  • In 2010-11 Charlie was an asst. coach with the Sisler Spartans of the WHSHL were he helped them capture

the "B" division championship.

  •     Previous to his coaching career, Charlie played for the Winnipeg Hawks AAA Midget Hockey Club, where in

2001 he helped lead them to the Provincial Championship. Later that year he was picked up by the Swift 

Current Broncos of the WHL. After AAA, Charlie played for the Raiders Jr. Hockey Club from 2003-2005.

 

 

August 2013

    The Winnipeg Satelites would like to announce their coaching staff for the 2013/14 season.

We would like to thank last season's head coach Nan Nadeau for the time he spent with us. Dan 

has returned home to Calgary so he can be closer to his son and his parents.

    Last season's assistant coach Taylor Lemon will be taking over the Satelites head coaching duties. 

Taylor brings with him several years of coaching experience, having coached at the 14 year old A2 

level a few seasons ago and finishing with a record of 22-2. He has also coached at several 

instructional clinics and rookie camps. After his junior playing days were over with the Satelites, 

Taylor was offered a position with the team as an assistant coach, which he readily accepted.

 

        Joining Taylor on the bench as an assistant is Cam Hildebrand. Cam as had some coaching 

experience, helping out at several high school hockey camps. Cam played his minor hockey in

North Winnipeg and 7Oaks, playing for the AA Stars and the AAA Hawks. He also played for the

Winnipeg Thrashers.

        Cam started his junior career with the Steinbach Pistons of the MJHL, earning the "C" in his

second season with the Pistons. At the age of 20 Cam returned home to play for the Raiders Jr.

Hockey Club of the MMJHL, again wearing the Captain's "C" for his final two seasons of junior

hockey. Cam was a two time first team All-Star in each of his two seasons in the MMJHL.

Cam had a big impact with the Raiders club, helping the club turn around and rise to the

upper echelons of the "MM". It's that character that we hope he brings with him to the

Satelites in his new role as a coach.

    

        The Winnipeg Satelites are pleased to welcome Cam to the Satelites coaching staff and to

the Satelites Family.

Arborg Ice Dawg Tune-up for the Westerns

April 14,2012

Manitoba Stars vs. Arborg Ice Dawgs April 14/2012

        In the Arborg Ice Dawgs tune-up game against a team made of Ice Dawg Alumni, members of the 

U of M Bisons, the North Winnipeg Satelites, Selkirk Steelers, Stonewall Jets, Interlake Lightning, 

Stonewall Flyers, the Gimli Wolves and the Plum Coulee Express, the Ice Dawgs found themselves on 

the wrong end of the 8-2 score. The team dubbed Manitoba Stars proved to be a little too much for the 

Ice Dawgs, who showed the effects of not having been in competitive hockey games for almost two weeks.

        Jeff Sonnenburg had bookend goals, scoring the first and the last goals for the Manitoba Stars. After

Sonnenburg's early first period goal, Jeff English scored a late first period goal for the Ice Dawgs to send

the game into the first intermission tied at one.

        In the second, the Stars scored two goals in 20 seconds, the first by the Selkirk Steelers Evan Laye 

and the next by Brendan Rowinski of the Bisons to take a 3-1 lead. The Ice Dawgs cut into that lead when

Brock McMahon scored to make the score 3-2, but the Manitoba Stars team reeled off three consecutive

goals from the sticks of Tyson Fergula of the Interlake Lightning, Bruce Hoban from the Satelites, and

Rowinski with his second of the game to take a 6-2 lead after forty minutes. In the third, Hoban added

his second of the game, followed by Sonnenburg's second to make the final 8-2.

        Mark Friesen of the Bisons made 25 saves in the nets for the Manitoba Stars, while the tandem of

Brendan and Connor Darowski combined to make 43 saves for the Ice Dawgs.

        The North Winnipeg Satelites making the trip to play in the game against the Ice Dawgs were:

Gary Duszak, Bruce Hoban, Jordan Monis and Conor Stephenson.

        After the final whistle both teams lined up to shake hands in a display of good sportsmanship and 

then both teams posed together for a collective team picture.

        The Ice Dawgs will now prepare to leave for Saskatoon and vie for the Keystone Cup which gets 

underway on Thursday April, 19 and represent the Province of Manitoba and the KJHL in the Western 

Canada Junior 'B' Championship. We wish you all the best and good luck.
