Rosetown Redwings player Jared Jagow had himself a bit of a surprise earlier this week.

The long time Wings forward, who has played for Rosetown's rosters in the Sask Valley Hockey League and Allan Cup Hockey West, received an award from the ACHW following the long weekend for his ability and sportsmanship on the ice.

 

 

Jagow was the only player from the Redwings to receive an award for the 2018-2019 season. I sat down with Jared to ask him about his reaction to the news and how he found out he won the Most Sportsmanlike Award.

The former WHLer didn't appear in as many games this season as he has in previous years, but he still managed to be a big part of Rosetown's offence this winter. In 11 games during the regular season, Jaggy notched 7 goals and 5 assists for 12 points with only 4 penalty minutes to his name.

Unfortunately for the Redwings, their run in the 2019 ACHW Playoffs came to an abrupt ending last weekend when the Innisfail Eagles whipped out the brooms and swept them 3-0. It was definitely not the finish Jared and his teammates were hoping for as he shared his thoughts on the matter.

Despite not making it to the ACHW Final this year, the Redwings will have a chance to compete for national glory when they are in Lacombe, Alberta for the 2019 Allan Cup in April. Last year, the Redwings hosted the tournament which brought in teams from Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario and the Maritimes.

This time around, the Redwings have earned an automatic berth into the tournament as the representatives of Saskatchewan. They qualified since there will be no team from British Columbia that will challenge for the Pacific spot, leaving it for the taking between the Stony Plain Eagles and Innisfail Eagles. The Manitoba champion will then take the West spot, meaning no Rathgaber Cup against the winners from Manitoba for Rosetown.

The only other team other than the Generals and Redwings we know will be competing at this spring's event are the Haut-Madawaska Panthers, who are the Atlantic qualifiers from New Brunswick.

Without the Rathgaber Cup and extra playoff games, the Redwings won't have any big games from now until the Allan Cup. Jagow shares his thoughts on their schedule.

This year's Allan Cup will be played from April 8th to the 13th.
