2014-2015 Season Comes to a Close

By: Sophia Etier, Stampede Sports
As always, all things must come to an end eventually, and on March 7th, the Stampede officially wrapped everything up for their 2014-2015 season. Going into the playoffs, Cheyenne went up against the Colorado Eagles but were unfortunately denied the one way ticket into the second round of Thorne Cup playoffs as the Eagles took the series with a 2-0 record. In Game One, the Stampede saw goals from Cody Key and Ville Tikkanen, and in a valiant effort to force a game three, Cheyenne pushed their final match with a late goal from captain Heath Lantz.

Now despite having an earlier playoff exit than expected, the Stampede have shown quite a high amount of growth throughout the regular season. With this post season appearance, the Stampede have officially made the playoffs every year of the franchise's history. Not only does this show how impeccably well the team can stay together during any situation that is thrown at them, this shows the immense connection the Stampede have with Cheyenne. In a truly valorous effort to salvage the last match of the post season, the entire Cheyenne bench played probably their best game out of the whole year. Cheyenne may have made an early departure, but they certainly went out with finesse and flair. The Stampede most certainly built an incredibly strong core unit throughout the past 6 months and paired it with an out of this world sense of team confidence.

Leaving the past behind and looking towards the future, the Stampede organization has already begun their search for 2015's new batch of players. This year, the skaters set amazing examples of team chemistry, determination, and ambition, and the new faces that will show up in Cheyenne's Ice and Events Center in late August will have some particularly big shoes to fill. Along with the head start on recruiting, the Stampede are planning some big changes for the upcoming season including a new Stampede Booster Club!

Looking to have this new season follow up the great accomplishments of those of past years, the Stampede will be in full force looking for skaters that can up hold high levels of ambition, determination, and pride for the Stampede logo.

Stampede Prepare For Intense Post-Season

By: Sophia Etier, Stampede Sports
The Stampede wrapped everything up in their 2014-2015 regular season this past weekend when the Colorado Eagles participated in Cheyenne's closing series. The team was in Fort Collins for the first match of the weekend, and after three periods, the Eagles would take the game 3-1. Moving back to Wyoming for the Stampede's very last home game, Colorado would end up taking the final for this game as well with their 8-1 win. Looking into the post season, the Stampede have everything in their bag of tricks to make a very strong playoff run and that is all backed up with the tremendous passion each skater possess for the game. These players have proved throughout the season that they can pick themselves back up after any rough patch and come back fighting with an intense fury. Each skater plays with an immense heart almost every game and it is very apparent every time they step on the ice. I was able to speak with the Stampede's General Manager Mark Lantz on his opinion of the Stampede's 2014-2015 season and he stated, "Any season that doesn't end with a championship is a disappointment. We didn't finish atop of the league, but we showed tremendous growth as [an] organization, Our players worked hard and came out wanting to play and wanting to win. We didn't get the results we wanted on the scoreboard, but we won the battle for hearts, dedication, and love of the game. We have to acknowledge our tremendous fan support. The end result should have been better but the good thing about junior hockey is you don't have to rebuild...you can reload! Our off season is going to be very busy with new players, new strategies, new approaches and the addition of another team. We're excited about the prospects for the 2015 season and can't wait to get back on the ice."

Nolan Kinney and Ville Tikkanen were the Stampede's scorers for the weekend whereas Michael Ballard, Cody Key, and Cory Hurtubise were the final skaters to record assists in this season. Egor Riabchikov was the main goaltender for the series and he was able to stop a total of 67 shots on goal. Alex Groner was the series' Penalty Minute Leader with a total of 10 PIMs.

In the first round of the Thorne Cup playoffs, the Stampede will be facing off against the Colorado Eagles. The first three scheduled games will take place on March 6th, 7th, and 8th in Fort Collins, Colorado. The 6th's game will begin at 8:40 pm MST, the 7th's game will start at 8:00 pm MST, and the 8th's match will begin at 10:30 am MST. Best of luck Cheyenne!
