Hunter Tremblay's Journey into the Record Books

Hunter Tremblay is playing his fourth year as a V-Red, having played 100 regular season games thus far, Hunter is eligible for a fifth year, which all of us would love, but that is a decision that only Mr. Tremblay can make. As the second half of the regular season progresses, some of us have discussed where we think Hunter will end up when the final period of the Nationals is played this year, and the final numbers are tallied.

Using Vredshockey.com's ReDSea database, I have put together a spreadsheet of Hunter's record, his competition with Rob Hennigar, and where he sits in conjunction with the greats of UNB's past. I invite you all to speculate where he will sit in conjunction to these other players when all is said and done, and to discuss the most memorable parts of his career thus far.

Hunter has been a pleasure to watch play. He'll probably own the total points points record (playoffs + regular season) when all is said and done.

Will he score 10 more goals in the regular season? Probably not. That's a tough task these days. Some of the goals totals of other players are incredible - 90 goals in 112 games, 96 in 133. I remember Dax MacLean, deadly fast hands. We don't see that scoring pace these days.

Hopefully Tremblay goes on a scoring tear in March.

Most memorable goal? Has to be the OT winner against SMU in game 1 of 2008 AUS finals, doesn't it?

Derek Cormier with 5 seconds left against STU - skated from his own blue line and scored with no time left to win the 3rd Mark Jeffrey game 5-4.
or
Hunter's goal from last year when he flipped the puck over the Dman and picked it up on the other side and deaked out the goalie.
or
Kyle Baily's Overtime Penalty shot vs SMU to win the AUS Title.

For really big goals...
- Dax in OT vs UA in '97
- Jesse in OT vs UA in '04
- Rob in OT vs UdeM in '07
- ??? to tie USask in '00

For me, it's hard to top Ferguson's goal in 2004 vs Alberta. On home ice. Still the best game ever at the AUC!

Pearce's goal was pretty special in Moncton, made the beer cup to the head from the UdeM fans the night before a bit more tolerable. :)

Other memorable goal - I remember STU's Derek Campbell score the OT goal vs. UNB in the playoffs in 2002/03 (I think) in game 2 of the playoffs. That one hurt, but we whooped them down at the LBR the next game 4-1 I think. Miss those STU/UNB games at the AUC.

I thought the original comments were about Hunter's goals?

For me, the top goals include Dax MacLean's overtime winner against Alberta (a classic drive-the-net bang-bang play to finish a great pass); the more recent Jordan Clendenning goal from his knees; Ferguson's close-my-eyes-and-shoot just because of the occasion; the first three that Eric describes, especially Hunter's.

The original post said "discuss the most memorable parts of his career thus far"...so that's why I only mentioned Tremblay's OT goal against SMU. But if we are just talking about memorable goals in general obviously I would put all the usual suspects on the list (Pearce, Ferguson, Bailey penalty shot against SMU). When I think of memorable I usually think more of the circumstances than how pretty the goal was.

As for the STU/UNB game Ken mentioned (game 2 that STU won 2-1 in OT)...since I started going to UNB games I still think that one had the biggest attendance (even bigger than any game from the Nationals). I had to stand the whole game in one of the exits because I couldn't find a seat. It would be nice to see STU/UNB games get back to that kind of atmosphere.

Getting back to Hunter - what about the best goal that never counted - his shot that went through the net (vs Dal I think). That's a pretty hard shot to split the net.
