173rd Battle of the Hill, tonight!

The V-Reds (20-5-0) host the Tommies (3-18-4) for the 173rd Battle of the Hill and the annual Mark Jeffrey game at 7pm. The V-Reds will wear pink jerseys as part of the ‘Pink in the Rink’ promotion. Fans are encouraged to also wear pink in the rink to show their support for this worthy cause.

The V-Reds are coming off their first loss in 11 outings and currently sit both first in the AUS and also first in the CIS national media poll. Hunter Tremblay has 9 pts (7G 2A) against the Tommies this year, including two hat tricks and Chris Culligan has 7 pts (2 G 5A) against the Tommies this year. Travis Fullerton has allowed only two goals on 68 shots over three games against the Tommies this year.

The Tommies are currently on a seven games losing streak and sit last in the AUS. Randy Cameron and Corey Banfield have been the only Tommies to find the back of the V-Reds net this season, and Alex Labonte has assisted on both goals. Jason Cassidy leads the Tommies in pts this year with 19 (7G 12A).

The game can be watched on Rogers TV, and followed on
