V-Reds Heading To USA For NCAA Exhibition

Looks like the Varsity Reds will be heading south for a pair of exhibition contests against some tough NCAA opponents this fall.  According to, UNB will play New Hampshire on October 1st, while UMaine Athletics advertises the V-Reds for an October 2nd game.

The V-Reds have history with these clubs, going 2-2 vs Maine since the 07/08 season and also holding a 4-2 victory over UNH the last time the clubs met in 2007/08 when Philadelphia Flyers forward James Van Riemsdyk was dressed as a rookie and scored twice on Mike Ouzas.

Best Wishes To "The Voice" of the V-Reds

By now you all know that Dave Ritchie of CHSR-FM and Daily Gleaner Sports fame is leaving Fredericton to pursue other interests.  On behalf of all the V-Reds hockey fans, we would like to wish him and his wife all the best, and thank him for his tireless hours calling V-Reds games as one half of "the Daves" on CHSR all these years.  We probably don't know how much effort it took on his part to plan and travel to all those games to keep us up to date.

Best of luck Dave!  Something tells us we haven't heard David Ritchie's "heee scooorrrrres" call for the last time yet...
