UNB@STU - Wednesday, Oct. 28th at 7pm

This Wednesday, the V-Reds visit the new and improved STU Tommies for the first regular season Battle of the Hill. According to www.vredshockey.com, this will be the 167th meeting of the two teams, taking into account the President’s Cup game which saw UNB win 8-1 on September 15th of this year. UNB has been dominant historically in this match-up, with a record of 112-47-8. STU has not managed to beat UNB since October 20th, 2006.

Will this trend continue, or is it time for STU to make home ice advantage count?

The V-Reds are off to a great start. At 4-0, they lead the AUS in goals, assists, points, goals allowed, save percent, and penalty-killing. Hunter Tremblay, Chris Culligan, John Scott Dickson, and Daine Todd have been the top forwards, while Luke Gallant at defense continues to be a play maker, now with 1 goal and 9 assists in 4 games.

STU, coming off of a dominant 9-3 win over Dal, and with a record of 2-2, has the second most goals in the AUS. STU has the #1 shot percentage in the AUS with 18.7%, and #1 power play in the AUS going 8 for 25, or 32%. Kenton Dulle, Devan Praught, Tyler Dietrich, and Maxim Chamberland have been leading STU offensively thus far this season.

The game will be available on CHSR 97.9 FM or UNB Hockey on Twitter.
