12 Takes with Dave Anthony | Week 24 2021-22

Only a couple weeks left in the regular season…. unless Mother Nature keeps forcing games to be postponed, then who knows how long the regular season could go for. Jokes aside, this has been a great month of hockey. It’s not over yet, either! Take 1: Scoreboard watching is so much fun. The league’s website […]

12 Takes with Dave Anthony | Week 23 2021-22

Just three weeks left in the regular season. Some teams have a lot of games to play with a lot on the line while others will look to keep momentum high in the remaining contests. Still, there is a lot to be decided so I’d bet the website “scoreboard” section gets quite a lot of […]

12 Takes with Dave Anthony | Week 22 2021-22

We’ve entered into week 21 of the MJHL season. 147 days of hockey action. As we get closer to the end of the regular season, let’s crack on with the 12 Takes for this week. Take 1: We start off this week on a somber note. The Winker Flyers released a statement regarding assistant coach […]

12 Takes with Dave Anthony | Week 21 2021-22

Before we get buried by more snow, let’s look around the world of the MJHL, hockey and a little life in general! Take 1: If the words “capacity limit” are never, ever uttered again, I think we’ll all be pretty happy about that. Teams and staff have done a beyond amazing job juggling all the […]

12 Takes with Dave Anthony | Week 19 2021-22

It’s nice to have a full week of games again, isn’t it? We haven’t had this much consistent MJHL action in years. So, before more things happen, let’s get into the Takes! Take 1: When did wearing dress shoes without socks become a thing? Players now a days are out there in the snow, loading […]

12 Takes with Dave Anthony | Week 18 2021-22

Days are slowly getting longer. It’s still unreasonably cold for the most part, but we’re into the final full and very busy month of the season. The playoffs and spring are just around the corner. Let’s kick February off. Take 1: I give a lot of credit to Virden for bouncing back after that soul […]

12 Takes with Dave Anthony | Week 17 2021-22

Back at it for another week of Takes. Feels like January kind of flew by and it seems like every game from here on out carries a little more weight, which will be entertaining for all fans and give coaches a few more grey hairs. Let’s close out January in style. Take 1: Heads up […]

12 Takes with Dave Anthony | Week 16 2021-22

After a few nice days in a row, we are right back in the thick of winter. Let’s get into some random thoughts and talk some hockey. Take 1: I really hope that these capacity limits are going to be lifted in February. There will be some really intense regular season matchups with teams fighting […]

12 Takes with Dave Anthony | Week 15 2021-22

Happy New Year! It’s so great to be back in the rinks across the province. I think we’ve learned from the past couple years just how many people need the MJHL and love the game of hockey. Let’s sink our teeth into some hockey talk here to kick off the un-official second half Take 1: […]

12 Takes with Dave Anthony | Week 14 2021-22

The final week before the final games before 2021 is behind us. We’ve got some special things cooking over the next couple weeks, given how much time teams will have off. But, that’s for later. Let’s stay in the here and now, shall we? Let’s go! Take 1: I was up in OCN this past […]

12 Takes with Dave Anthony | Week 13

Lots to catch up on around the league so let’s get into the Takes quick, fast and in a hurry. Take 1: Shoutout to HyLife who put on a great show in Neepawa when the Titans played the Pistons. I was in the rink and as broadcasters know but maybe some fans don’t, the visitors […]

12 Takes with Dave Anthony | Week 12 2021-22

The calendar has flipped into the final month of 2021. Amazing to think all that’s happened even in the few short months of the MJHL season. Things are picking up on the trade front after teams learned a lot from the MJHL Showcase in Portage. It was a terrific, terrific event. Getting to see all […]

12 Takes with Dave Anthony | Week 10 2021-22

No time to dilly-dally, let’s giddy up and get into the Takes quick. Take 1: Oh, baby am I ready for the MJHL Showcase. It’s going to be a blast seeing all the teams in action, having all the coaches and GM’s around each other and of course, the scouts there to see the talent […]

12 Takes with Dave Anthony | Week 9 2021-22

Hope you’re feeling great coming off the time change. Always great to fall back an hour. Some use it to get more sleep while others use it to toss and turn or play on their phone. Either way, it’s good except knowing eventually you’re going to lose that hour. But that’s then, this is now. […]

12 Takes with Dave Anthony | Week 8 2021-22

Happy November! Lots to get through this week on the Takes so let’s not waste any time because the more time we waste the more likely it is that I’m interrupted by Michael Bublé or Mariah Carey, both of whom have awaken from their slumber and will ringing our bells with Christmas carols soon enough. […]

12 Takes with Dave Anthony | Week 7 2021-22

Almost two months into the season, a dozen games and Halloween right around the corner, let’s fill our pillow cases not with candy but with Takes from around the MJHL! Hopefully their good and yummy and not like raisins. Take 1: Billet appreciation nights are great. It’s always a treat to see the billet moms […]

12 Takes with Dave Anthony | Week 6

I was in Portage for Sunday’s game between the Terriers and the Steinbach Pistons when I got to talking with an individual there. This guy has been doing lighting for decades. He told me his story, how he’s been very busy with weddings this summer and how he enjoys doing the hockey games when he […]

12 Takes with Dave Anthony | Week 5

Wishing you and yours a happy Thanksgiving! Sure, it’s in the review mirror now but the leftovers and things to be thankful for will carry on. This week, let’s look at what each team has to be thankful for. Before we start, it should be said that having great community support, fans, billets and coaches/boards […]

12 Takes with Dave Anthony | 2021-22 Week 4

Sun continues to shine. Golf continues to be played. Hockey is underway. Life is GOOD! Let’s get down to business. Take 1: It usually happens as the year goes on but I’ve quickly regretted a Take already… the less than 20 shutouts. *Facepalm* I should have known better. The talent between the pipes across the […]

12 Takes with Dave Anthony | 2021-22 Week 3

September 30th is National Truth and Reconciliation Day. The day honours the lost children and Survivors of residential schools, their families and communities. Public commemoration of the tragic and painful history and ongoing impacts of residential schools is a vital component of the reconciliation process. This National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, explore the rich […]

12 Takes with Dave Anthony | Week 2

We’re geared up and ready to go after a successful opening weekend across the league. Team’s had a solid week of practice to work on things they either liked or didn’t like in the first two games. Fans are gearing up for more hockey this weekend and as the leaves turn and temperature drops, it’s […]

12 Takes with Dave Anthony

It feels so good to be back! Lots to get excited about for all the teams in the MJHL and lots to catch up on. New faces, new expectations and lots of hope for a safe and full year. The regular season starts tomorrow, so let’s get started with a brand new season of Takes! […]

12 Takes with Dave Anthony

Well… this sucks. Watching other provinces make trades, skate and prep for games, it’s hard not to feel like the runt of the litter in this province. The league did everything it could. Coaches, players, volunteers… everyone did EVERYTHING they could. It wasn’t good enough, apparently. Now, we have to sit back and hear about […]

12 Takes with Dave Anthony

Anyone else’s fingers and toes hurt from being crossed so long? I’m not a doctor, expert or someone who’s opinion matters much, but I get the sense the next two weeks are going to determine whether the MJHL returns or not. Here’s hoping we can get back to the rinks, the players can get back […]
