Last August, then GM Brendan Taman said Matt Sheridan wouldn't play another game for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

The new regime obviously felt the same way, because it released the Canadian offensive lineman from his contract yesterday after eight seasons in Blue and Gold.

Sheridan, who was born in Montreal but grew up in Winnipeg and played for the University of Manitoba Bisons, was a two-time winner of the Bombers' offensive lineman of the year award.

The latter part of Sheridan's career in Winnipeg was injury-plagued, however, and he started only 20 of a possible 54 games over the last three seasons.

The 31-year-old had a groin injury in training camp last year and was all set to return in mid-July, but the day before the team left for Vancouver to play the B.C. Lions Sheridan informed the team that he had a shoulder injury.

The Bombers put him on the nine-game injured list, and shortly thereafter Taman said Sheridan's time with the Bombers was all but over.

MOOSE CALL UP YEO

The Manitoba Moose yesterday recalled defenceman Dylan Yeo from the ECHL's Victoria Salmon Kings.

Yeo has appeared in 45 games for the Salmon Kings this season, registering 10 goals and 28 assists. He appeared in eight matches for the Moose last season, notching a pair of assists.

The Moose, losers of two in a row, will hit the practice ice this morning to prepare for the Lake Erie Monsters tomorrow night in the first of back-to-back contests at MTS Centre.

SNIDER SETTLES FOR SILVER

Winnipeg's David Snider had to settle for silver yesterday at the Canadian men's badminton championship in Laval, Que.

Snider, the defending champ, lost 2-0 (21-11, 21-15) to Ottawa's Andrew Dabeka in the gold-medal match.

Snider, 20, was the No. 2 seed going into the tournament, while Dabeka, 30, was the top seed.

Snider became the youngest person to win the Canadian men's championship last year.
