The past weekend in Cheyenne found your Stampede playing host to the Colorado Evolution for a 3 game set. It was a weekend of accomplishment for the Cheyenne Stampede. In a clean 3 game sweep of the Evolution, the Stampede picked up 6 crucial points. At the end of the weekend they were tied with the Salt Lake City Moose in points. The Moose do have 3 games in hand on the Stampede. It was also the annual Teddy Bear Toss Game on Saturday. Fans were encouraged to bring teddy bears to throw on the ice after the Stampede’s first goal. The fans did not disappoint. Hundreds of teddy bears rained onto the ice that will be donated by the Stampede to local organizations to give to children in stressful situations by police, fire or medical personnel. Sunday found Alternate Captain Thayne Trumbull adding his name to the top of the Cheyenne Stampede record books. On the heels of a 13 point weekend, he became the single season scoring leader all time for the Stampede. Trumbull, with the help of his line mates Heath Lantz and Lukas Slansky, had 5 goals and 8 assists on the weekend to give him 69 points on the season. The Stampede outscored the Evolution 32-6 in the 3 game set. Balanced scoring from all 4 lines proved to be the difference in the series.


Friday saw a very large enthusiastic Stampede crowd turn out at the Cheyenne Ice and events Center for a high scoring affair. The Stampede outshot the Evolution 64-19 and would win this one running away by the score of 12-5. The Stampede found themselves down 2-1 with 6 minutes left in the first. 3 unanswered Stampede goals in the last 3:30 of the first would be enough to give the Stampede a 4-2 lead at the end of 1. 4 goals in the second and 4 in the third would cement the first victory of the weekend. Goals were scored by; Craig Thurston and Lukas Slansky with 2 each, Austin Dittenhafer, Brett Howard, Heath Lantz, Shane Sefton, Dominik Taras, Thayne Trumbull and Parker Wall each had 1. Assists were picked up by; Thayne Trumbull and Austin Dittenhafer each with 3 apiece. Troy Beinhauer, Lukas Slansky and Parker wall each had 2. Casey Goodmanson, Ruslans Ignatovics, Heath Lantz, Walter Malcom, Justin Stein, Dominik Taras, Craig Thurston and Kristians Zelts each had 1. Cameron Madrid would pick up the win in goal.


Saturday saw a tremendous effort in goal by the Evolution net minder. While the Stampede put up 76 shots, only 5 would find the back of the net. The Stampede’s number 1 tender Patrik Asenbrenner stopped all 21 of the shots he faced getting the shutout and the 5-0 victory for the Stampede. Heath Lantz would get the Stampede on the board first at 16:39 of the first period. His game winning goal unleashed the teddy bears to rain upon the ice. Many fans brought bags full of bears to donate and couldn’t wait to throw them. Other goal scorers for your Stampede were; Thayne Trumbull, Lukas Slansky, Parker Wall and Austin Dittenhafer all with 1. Assists were tallied by; Thayne Trumbull with 2, Austin Dittenhafer, Matej Klust, and Kristians Zelts each 1. Blade Roh was solid in net picking up the win.


Super Bowl Sunday found a small group of fans turn out before the other big game. The smaller crowd in no way changed the game plan or determination of the Stampede players. Led by hat tricks from Thayne Trumbull (3 goals and 3 assists) and Craig Craig Thurston (3 goals), the Stampede would dominate this one from start to finish and win it going away by the score of 15-1. Other goal scorers were; Heath Lantz with 2, Troy Beinhauer, Austin Dittenhafer, Brett Howard, Ruslans Ignatoviks, Matej Klust, Shane Sefton, and Justin Stein each with 1. Assists were put up by; Lukas Slansky and Kristians Zelts with  4. Heath Lantz and Thayne Trumbull each had 3. Ruslans Ignatoviks had 2. Austin Dittenhafer, Brett Howard, Brody Knelsen, Mitchell Kocisis, Walter Malcom, Shane Sefton, Justin Stein, Dominik Taras, and Parker wall each had 1.
