This week on #InsideTheCru GM Kyle Chase joins Tyler Yaremchuk to recap the Crusader’s deadline day moves & look ahead to a big week on the ice:
Sherwood Park Crusaders
The Crusaders are looking for a strong start to their post-trade deadline stretch as they welcome the 21-13-6 Calgary Mustangs to Sherwood Park Arena. There was no shortage of moves made by team General Manager Kyle Chase, as the Cru saw forward Cody Laskosky sent to the Camrose Kodiaks and brought in a couple of seasoned veterans in Zach Kaiser and Reid Irwin from the Lloydminster Bobcats.
Kaiser wasn’t in the lineup tonight as he’s recovering from a wrist injury but is averaging just under a point per game so far this season and should add another top scoring threat to the lineup, along with a veteran presence that will be vital to this team making a strong push in the playoffs.
Irwin made his debut tonight which will give the fans a chance to see what he brings to the table. He’s put up 12 points so far this season, which isn’t bad for a defenceman playing on a weak team. He’s a guy who will be depended on to shut down other teams top players but may surprise a few people with his puck moving ability.
The Crusaders are also getting one of the leagues top player’s in Carter Savoie back in their lineup after serving a two-game suspension. Which will be huge as they come into this weekend hoping to grab four points and continue to reign number one in the North Division.

The Sherwood Park Crusaders suffered just one loss in the month of December and it came at the hands of the Spruce Grove Saints in their final game of the month. The Cru was looking to push their winning streak to double-digits last Sunday against the Saints and instead, they were dealt a 9-3 loss.
Crumple it up and throw it out. The 2018 portion of this season has been wildly successful and there haven’t been too many nights where the Crusaders have been beaten up that bad.
Tonight, the team was looking to get back into the win column against the Canmore Eagles and the Sherwood Park Arena was bumping considering that Rogers Hometown Hockey was in town.
Here’s how things went down:

Some of the most entertaining games on the entire AJHL schedule this season have been a product of a matchup between the Spruce Grove Saints and the Sherwood Park Crusaders. It shouldn’t come as a surprise either. The Saints are the defending AJHL Champions, as they reminded me earlier today on Twitter, while the Crusaders are better than they’ve been in years and currently sit atop the AJHL’s North Division.

The Sherwood Park Crusaders were on home ice tonight against an opponent they played just last Sunday in the Whitecourt Wolverines.
Carter Gylander got the start between the pipes, and in front of him both Tyler Jette and Arjun Atwal made their return to the lineup.
Here’s how this one played out:
