UNB Vs. StFX - Friday, Nov. 13th, 7PM

The V-Reds host the #8 ranked team in the country this Friday when the StFX X-Men visit the Aitken Centre.  The X-Men are off to a strong start, currently sitting 2nd in the AUS standings with 13 points, just 3 points back of the V-Reds.  Perhaps most surprising about this year's StFX team is that they rank second in goals scored in the AUS with 37.  Second year forward Bryce Swan leads the team with 10 goals and 5 assists in 9 games.

The V-Reds needed overtime last weekend to beat the X-Men by a score of 4-3 in the first meeting between these teams.  StFX goalie Bryan Gillis was on his game making 37 saves.  This could be the biggest challenge on home ice yet for UNB this season.

The game will be available on Rogers TV and UNBHockey on Twitter.
