Ryan Kehler 


The 5’11 point guard is currently averaging 22 points per game for the Sabres to go with 8 rebounds, 4 assists and 5 steals. High school coach Colten Gryba, an assistant coach with the Blazers, feels that Kehler is ready for the jump to the college game and can make in immediate impact.

Head Coach Darcy Coss is also very familiar with Kehler’s game. Kehler has played club with the Winnipeg Elites, where Coss has been very involved in coaching for the past 4 years. “Ryan is a natural point guard and team-player,” says Coss, “He can push the ball in transition, is a three-point threat and is well known for intercepting balls on defense and leading the fast-break.”

Cole Mazurik


At 6’6, Mazurik promises to be a long, strong and powerful first-year presence for the Blazers. After helping Glenlawn Collegiate to a 2011 MHSAA SCAC Championship, Mazurik transferring to the Trojans to complete his grade 12 year. Last summer, as a member of the u-17 provincial team, Mazurik helped Manitoba to a silver-medal at the Canadian Nationals in Sherbrooke, Quebec.

“Cole is an Excellent Athlete, he runs the floor, rebounds, and defends the rim,” says CMU head coach Darcy Coss, “We hope that Cole can use these skills to help us in the coming year. Cole also brings great character and work ethic. We are extremely excited to have him join the CMU community.”

Coss and the Blazers will be hosting their annual Spring Identification Camp this weekend as thoughts turn to the building of the 2013-14 version of the CMU men’s basketball team.
