1994/95 Year End Write-up and Stats

Schedule

For the fourth consecutive year the Reds hockey team finished first in the MacAdam division. The 1994-95 team broke the UNB record for most points in a season with a total of 40 out of a possible 52 points. Four first place finishes since 1991 and a league record of 80-27-7 establishes the current UNB hockey team as the most successful since 1960-64 Maritime Championship teams.

The first of the season started on the road when the Reds visited #1 ranked Boston University, Boston College, Harvard and Brown. The Reds put in an impressive performance against the highly regarded Division 1 contenders. The Reds also entertained UQTR and the St. Thomes Tommies in the Annual River City Shootout. The Reds won the tournament by defeating both teams by scores of 4-3 and 8-3.

The Reds first half saw the team embark on an extremely difficult schedule, playing the majority of their games on the road. The regular season started slow as the team won only three of their first eight games. But with the talent on the Reds team, one knew it was only a matter of time before the Reds would turn things around.

After a 2-2 tie with St. Mary's on November 18th the Reds went on a winning streak second to none. From November 18th to the end of the season the Reds record was an incredible 15-1-2. The Reds finished the season with a record of 18-4-4 and were ranked 5th in the nation.

Key graduates this year include fifth year veteran Karl Taylor, fourth year veterans Rob Knesaurek, and Mike Cavanagh, and two third year veterans Todd Sparks and Alastair Still. With the loss of these players (all four captains) it will be up to the returning players to step up and take on a leadership role with the Reds next year.
