BLIZZARD RETIRE A LEGEND

As S39 is all but set to begin, the Edmonton Blizzard prepare for the next chapter in their franchises history, one which many believe could yield positive results for the first time since their playoff berth back in S33. Not to get too caught up in the hype, Blizzard management has opted to take a look back at some of their franchises successful, longtime members from season’s past, as well as retire one player's number which is frankly long overdue.

First up we have the blueline stalwart and sauce-pass wizard, Viktor Svensson. Acquired during the S30 offseason, the Swedish native made his first appearance in the Blizzard blue back in S31. Fresh off an emotional 5 game series loss to the New England Wolfpack in the Challenge Cup Finals, Edmonton management opted to strengthen their defensive corps, and while they arguably overpaid, you can’t deny they got a solid addition in Svensson. He’d play a depth role en route to another Challenge Cup Finals appearance in S31, where they fell to the Wolfpack yet again in 5 games. After the loss of several big names from the Edmonton blue line Svensson saw his role increase in S33, posting a career best 42 points, including an impressive 41 assists. That would be the last season Edmonton would qualify for the playoffs as they would dive in to a deep rebuild at the beginning of S34. Svensson continued to be a key piece, albeit a quiet one, for the rebuilding Blizzard up until his departure in S37 via trade to the San Francisco Pride, where he eventually retired. A 16 season veteran, Svensson racked up over 350 points with 6 different teams, but the Edmonton Blizzard will always be the team he’ll be most associated with, especially given his ties to Blizzard legend Lucas Smith.

1 Cole Reinhart Trophy (S31)



Next up we have another defenseman and longtime Blizzard ambassador, Winston Windsor. The UK native was acquired during the S27 offseason and hit the ice as a member of the Blizzard at the beginning of S28. Brought in to solidify an enviable top 4 that featured Vikstrand, Rogers-Tanaka and Muller, Winston played his part perfectly as the Blizzard would go on to win the Challenge Cup that season as well as reach the finals two more times in S30 and S31. Much like Svensson, Windsor saw his role grow, eventually becoming the #1 defender in the Blizzard depth-chart. His best year in the blue would have to be S29, which saw him rack up 43 points, including 38 assists and an immaculate +18 rating. As highlighted earlier the Blizzard would eventually fall under tough times at the beginning of S34 as many pieces were shipped out to acquire draft picks. The veteran two-way defender was no exception as he was moved during the S35 draft for multiple picks, a significant haul for the rebuilding Blizzard. Through 15 seasons Windsor racked up over 450 points across 4 teams, but as is the case with Svensson, the Blizzard will always be his “team”. Ties with Blizzard old timer Andrew James, as well significant time as a member of the Blizzard management puts the Blizzard at the top of the heap and the city of Edmonton will never forget his contributions.

A strong two-way defender, Windsor thrived in every scenario and was especially effective in the playoffs.

Last, but certainly not least, we have one of the definitive Blizzard defenseman that helped shape the organization and was a key part in what was arguably a dynasty in the late part of the S20’s, Jackson Rogers-Tanaka. More commonly referred to simply as JRT, this Norwegian born stud played his entire 11 season career in the Blizzard blue, and looked darn good doing it. Outside of his rookie season in S21, he posted at least 31 points every season, including a remarkable 51 points in S30. As was the case with Windsor, JRT was a prominent figure in the Blizzard management as well, spending several seasons as general manager and co-general manager. Following a disappointing end to a strong season in S31, Tanaka opted to hang them up for good, announcing his retirement. Fresh off a 37 point season, some could claim he still had more to give, but JRT wanted to retire while he was on top and not fade in to a role player and as JRT always said "quality over quantity". Regardless, he made his mark on the Edmonton franchise, something which will not be soon forgotten and now can be remembered forever as the Blizzard management have decided to add his number to rafters, alongside renowned names such as Lucas Smith, Jakub Aittokallio and Sergei Karpotsov. Congratulations on a successful career with the Edmonton Blizzard Mr. Rogers-Tanaka.

Sometimes I wish I could go back in time and re live those days. They were good days.

Thanks to Tez, Keenan, JY, Kez, and JP for bringing me on to the team. Couldn't imagine myself anywhere else.
