Swift Current radio feed: Radioplayer
can't get it on 304 or 354
Broncos win!!! Skinner joins Hebig as the 2nd Oiler prospect that will be at the Memorial Cup!
This radio announcer is awesome, giving me goosebumps. Can't wait to see Skinner in the Memorial Cup.
There it is...SC wins it!!! Skinner with another shutout to put the cherry ontop.
Listening to the crowd in the background was awesome too!
Second season in a row with an Oiler prospect in the MC. But this one has 2 to choose from.
Swift Current joins Acadie-Bathurst (who won their series in 6 today), Hamilton (who upset SSM in 6 today) and host Regina.
Skinner deserved the MVP, 6 shutouts these playoffs. Oh well
Gawdin takes the MVP.
Stauffer just tweeted he had a .948 SV%. Tied the WHL record for most shutouts in the playoffs
:edit: my bad, .948 sv% in the finals
.948 in the finals.
.932 for the entire playoffs.
I wonder if him getting the hook in game 5 cost him a few votes.
Didn't get the hook. Just got pulled for an extra attacker twice.
Twenty-nine years ago today the Broncos won their only Memorial Cup (they won the Ed Chynoweth Cup in 1993 as well). Tonight they win the Ed Chynoweth Cup.
Or the fact Gawdin is in his 5th full season with Swift, and is team captain.
Definitely pretty weird not seeing Skinner get it, usually the goalies get MVP if they dominate in the playoffs. 0% chance Swift wins the league if Skinner isn't between the pipes.
Oh well, he's saving the individual awards for the Memorial Cup!
I must have misread the postgame report...I thought he got pulled after the 5th goal, my mistake for not realizing it was for an extra attacker lol.
I have no idea how Skinner got snubbed from MVP. Gawdin had less points than two players who played only three rounds, barely was even the best forward on the team, as they are so deep that could go to a number of players.
Regardless, Skinner played fantastic and put up some crazy numbers. Excited to see what he can do in the Mem Cup and hopefully build on this for next year!
He gave up 4 goals on 38 shots then there were 2 EN goals.

Awesome!! Thanks for taking the time to prepare the schedule for the Mem Cup for us!
Interesting that there's a couple of late starts. Might be because of the SC playoffs.
I think it was very close between Gawdin and Skinner for MVP, but Gawdin got the nod for sentimentality's sake because it was his last game in Swift Current after 5 full seasons as a Bronco.
Brossoit had very similar numbers as Skinner during his last WHL season. In fact, Brossoit had a better regular season save % at .917 vs Skinner's .914 and the same playoff save % at .935 but with Brossoit having a GAA of 1.82 vs 2.12. So, I'll save my enthusiasm until he actually makes the NHL or at least does well during training camp.
