1998/99 Year End Write-up and Stats

Schedule | Playoffs

The 1998-99 version of the University of New Brunswick Varsity Reds began the season with the goal of defending their national title. Key and unexpected losses from last year's squad along with numerous injuries hampered the Varsity Reds from opening day.

All-Star goaltender Ken Carroll, went down with a severe knee injury and the team played with a shortened roster for most of the first half. Kirk Gormley stepped in for Carroll and his stellar play enabled the V-Reds to be close to the top in league play at the Christmas break.

The second half found the Reds battling to find a consistent level of championship calibre play. They appeared to be peaking at the right time, but lost a heart-breaking and dramatic triple overtime contest to the eventual AUAA champions, the Universite de Moncton Aigles Bleus, in the third and deciding game of the first round.

Senior, Dax MacLean continued to shine in a Varsity Reds uniform and moved into 1st place on the all-time total point scoring list. With 158 points (77-81-158), Dax is now on top of UNB's all-time points list, second on the all-time goals list and fifth on the all-time assists list.

Milestones
