Manitoba's Macaulay, Henry earn CIS hockey honours

  • Print

UNIVERSITY of Manitoba hockey star Blair Macaulay and rookie forward James Henry have been named to the 2012-13 CIS men's hockey all-star teams.

Macaulay was named as a first-team all-Canadian. It's the second consecutive year that the 24-year-old Winnipeg native has been selected an all-star. During the 2011-12 season, the 5-11 forward was named a second-team all-Canadian. This season, Manitoba's alternate captain finished tied for 12th in CIS scoring with 35 points (12 goals, 23 assists) in 28 conference games, and was named the 2012-13 Canada West men's hockey MVP.

Winnipegger Henry, 21, was named to the CIS all-rookie team after a robust first season with the Bisons, scoring 22 points, including eight goals, in all 28 conference games, good for fifth in team scoring.

DePape heading to U of M

A Western Hockey League forward with a nose for the net is coming home to play for the Bisons next season. U of M has recruited right-winger Jordan DePape, who turns 21 next week, for the 2013-14 season. DePape played 17 games for the Kamloops Blazers this season, scoring four goals and two assists before being sidelined with an injury. He was picked up by the Red Deer Rebels and could return to the ice later this month to wrap up his WHL career.

DePape, who was the 2008-09 MJHL rookie of the year as a Winnipeg Saint, launched his WHL career in 2009 with the Brandon Wheat Kings and was traded to Kamloops later that season. In 2010-11, he notched 21 goals and added 27 assists in 54 WHL games.

Two more for the hall

TWO new handball hall of famers will be inducted in May, when Winnipeg hosts the 2013 Canadian National 4-Wall Handball Championship at Duckworth Centre. During the tournament, Manitoban handball stars Lisa Fraser-Gilmore and Merv Deckert, both former world champions who have captured 19 Canadian National titles between them, will be inducted into the Manitoba Handball Hall of Fame.

The tournament will run from May 16 to 19. Players from the United States, Ireland and Canada are expected to compete.

Steeves, Rogalsky honoured

THE glow from the big win hasn't even worn off yet and already John Taylor Pipers hockey coach Justin Steeves is being lauded. The head coach of the new AAAA high school hockey champs has been named the Subway urban high school coach of the month. This season, Steeves took last-year's 11th-ranked team to a dream season, which saw them win the Winnipeg High School Hockey League championship en route to taking the provincial title with a victory over Oak Park on Monday.

Meanwhile, Landmark Collegiate junior varsity boys basketball coach Tim Rogalsky was named the Subway rural high school coach of the month for February. Rogalsky, who has been coaching at Landmark Collegiate for four years, helped coach his team to an undefeated season in A/AA league and tournament play, and took home a silver medal at the A/AA provincial tournament.

Wilford gets shot with nats

ONE Manitoba soccer player is one step closer to pulling on the red-and-white jersey for the under-20 FIFA World Cup.

Goaltender Madison Wilford, 16, was selected to the upcoming Canadian Soccer Association under-20 national women's team camp that will take place in Portland, Ore., next week, the Manitoba Soccer Association announced on Tuesday.

The camp is a chance for under-20 women's national team coach Andrew Olivieri to winnow down the roster that will eventually lead to the team selection for the U20 FIFA World Cup in 2014.

High school stars

One day before helping lead her team into the provincial semifinals, Oak Park Raiders basketball guard Jenilyn Morton was named the Home Run Sports urban high school athlete of the week. The Grade 12 student averaged 14 points and 11 assists per game over the season. Oak Park heads into the AAAA Final Four semifinal tonight with a match against the Sisler Spartans.

After leading his team to their first-ever provincial A/AA junior varsity championship, Somerset Lions basketball player Dominic Picard was named the Tri-Star rural high school athlete of the week on Wednesday. The Grade 10 student averaged 20 points, 10 assists and 15 rebounds per game through the championship, earning him the title of tournament MVP.
