1995/96 Year End Write-up and Stats

Schedule | Playoffs

For the first time in the history of the program, the Varsity Reds hockey team achieved the CIAU number one ranking. This was held for one week in November and then again for the month of December. The Reds finished the regular season with a 15-10-1 record to place second in the MacAdam division.

The playoffs were heartbreaking for the Reds. After trading wins with UPEI in the first two games (with a combined total of 27 goals scored), they lost the final game 1-0.

Although the end result was not as rewarding as the team would have liked, the coaches still felt very good about the year overall - primarily due to the fact that the team had 11 rookies in the lineup. With such a young team and the potential of 20 players returning, the future looks bright for the Varsity Reds hockey team.

Key graduates this year include Chris Nadeau (BPE), Toby Burkitt (BPE), Lesley Reddon (MPE), Dan Sherstenka (BA), Scott Muscutt (BA), Trevor Boland (MBA) and Toby is the all-time scoring leader.
