What Did You Miss Monday?

--The Riders made a small trade with Toronto. The green-and-white acquired receiver Brian Jones from the Argos for a 7th round selection in the 2019 draft.  Jones was taken with the 4th overall pick in the 2016 draft.

--The Pats made a small trade with Kootenay.  The Pats send a conditional 8th round pick in next year's bantam draft to the Ice for 17 year old goalie Carter Woodside.  The Asquith, Saskatchewan native was with the Prince Albert Mintos of the Saskatchewan Midget Triple A league last season.  Pats rookie camp starts Tuesday at the Brandt Centre with main camp starting on the weekend.  The first pre-season game is August 31 vs Swift Current at the Brandt Centre.

--A tough break for the Moose Jaw Warriors. 20 year old goalie Brody Willms will not play this season due to a hip injury. Willms won 37 games for the Warriors last season with four shutouts.

--Saskatoon's Bobbi Brandon will join another Saskatoon golfer, Anna Young, as locals in the field at the CP Canadian Womens Open.  Brandon was one of four to qualify in an 18 hole event at the Royal Regina Monday.  The CPWO starts Thursday at the Wascana.

--The Edmonton Oilers signed free-agent defenceman and recent Stanley Cup champion Jakub Jerabek to a one-year contract on Monday. Jerabek, 26, appeared in 36 games last season with the Montreal Canadiens and Washington Capitals, recording two goals and six assists. He also played in two playoff games in Capitals' run to the Stanley Cup title. Jerabek appeared in 17 games with the American Hockey League's Laval Rocket, posting 11 points with one goal and 10 assists.

No need to keep a aged Rob Bagg around with the first rounder Brian Jones coming in. Mr. Chris Jones highly probable brought back Bagg to rectify behind scenes issue with players association, league head office. Roughriders team doing just fine without the old Rob Bagg.
