UNB Varsity Reds - 2009 Men's Hockey National Champions

It was the outcome that UNB fans have been hoping for since the beginning of the 2008/09 CIS men's hockey season. The University of New Brunswick Varsity Reds defeated the University of Western Ontario Mustangs 4-2 in the finals of the CIS Men's Cavendish University Cup. This win marked the 2nd time in 3 years that the V-Reds have captured the gold medal.

New Brunswick's own, Lachlan MacIntosh, provided much of the fire power for UNB, scoring a hat trick. For his efforts, he was named Player of the Game for the 2nd time in the Tournament. UNB's only other goal came off the stick of John Scott Dickson. Assisting on the UNB goals were David Bowman, Jonathan Harty, Jimmy Cuddihy and Kyle Bailey (2). Goal scorers for the Mustangs were Patrick Ouellet and Kevin Baker.

In addition to being named Player of the Game, MacIntosh (F), along with teammates Kyle Bailey (F), Dustin Friesen (D) and Travis Fullerton (G) were named Tournament All-Stars for the Champion V-Reds, while Chris Petrow (D) and Joe McCann (F) were selected from Western Ontario. Lachlan MacIntosh, as well, was named the Tournament Most Valuable Player, tallying 5 goals and 1 assist in the process.

Congratulations to the University of New Brunswick Varsity Reds on a job well done.

What is perhaps most special about this victory is that the supporting cast stepped to plate and delivered team to victory.

They needed to improve on special teams, secondary scoring and get the one big save. Check, check and check.

Congrats guys!

Lots of New Brunswick talent on this years team. Gritty performances by lots of players in all 3 games - Campbell really stepped up and you can't say enough about Dickson's play.
How many minutes did Bailey play in those 3 games?
Looking forward to Wednesday night.

So....
was Tremblay playing on a broken ankle?

I understand it was/is a high ankle sprain, which is even worse (think Sidney Crosby). I'm pretty sure they froze it for the game. I talked to Hunter after the game and he'd said it was pretty sore ... but said that it didn't matter ...
