CIS Nationals, game #2: Calgary vs UNB

The second game of the tournament features the hometown and CIS #1 ranked V-Reds taking on the #6 Calgary Dinos at 7pm at the AUC. This will be the third meeting between these two teams as the V-Reds travelled out west in the preseason and beat the Dinos 10-2 and 6-1 in exhibition play.

This is the 11th trip to Nationals for both these teams, the V-Reds are returning after a one year absense, and the Dinos are returning for the first time since the 1999-2000 season.

Calgary's goalie Dustin Butler was named as goalie of the year for the CIS last night, and is a big part of the reason why this team is in the National tournament this year. Forward Reid Jorgensen led the team in scoring with 33 pts (17G 16 A) in 28 regular season games this year.

UNB's Hunter Tremblay leads in both regular season and career points in the history of the V-Reds, so far this year he has amassed 57 pts (44 regular season, 13 playoffs). Goaltender Travis Fullerton had the best GAA in the country at 1.60 and the best save percentange in the AUS at .928.

The game can be viewed as a webcast on the SSN network, listened to on CHSR radio, and followed on UNBHockey on Twitter.
