V-Reds host the Axemen and Tigers this weekend

This weekend the CIS #1 ranked UNB V-Reds (4-0-0) are at home to take on the CIS #3 ranked Acadia Axemen (3-1-0) and the AUS #4 ranked Dalhousie Tigers (2-2-0).

The V-Reds were once again voted the top team in the country, this time receiving all 17 of the top place votes in the weekly media poll. The V-Reds have battled through the injury of many key players, and are still undefeated this season, the only team in the country to have not had a loss thus far. The V-Reds are on a 17 game regular season winning streak at home dating back to Feb. 12th of 2010. UNB is led in scoring by Dion Campbell (3G 3A) and Tyler Carroll (3G 2A).

Tonight will be a battle of the stingiest defense and the most potent offence in the AUS as the V-Reds, who have allowed the fewest goals thus far this season, host the Axemen who have been making waves in the AUS this season. The Axemen currently have the highest shots per game, goals per game, Power Play goals, and Power Play percent in the AUS. The Axemen are led in scoring by Andrew Clark (4G 6A) and Joe Gaynor (4G 2A).

Saturday night, the V-Reds host the Tigers at 7pm at the AUC. The Tigers have struggled a bit this season, losing two rather lopsided games to UdeM (3-1-0), while defeating The STU Tommies (0-4-0) twice in fairly close games. The Tigers are led in scoring by Benjamin Breault (4G 1A) and P.-Alexandre Vandall 1G 3A).

Both games can be viewed on Rogers TV, viewed as a webcast, listened to on CHSR 97.9, and as always, you can follow UNBHockey on Twitter.

Nice to see Chris Culligan back in the lineup, carrying the puck and making nice passes as if he'd been playing all along.

nice to see Fully got first star, whoever picks the stars need to look at our goaltenders, usually over looked. Last years nationals he only let one goal in and didn't get mvp, who does the stars? Goalie was Mike maclean, played high school hockey for leo hayes a couple years back. Word around the rink the injury is more than they thought, lets hope nothing happens to fully , all they will do is run the crease knock fully out, then what?

Gardiner MacDougall got a two-game suspension for the verbal incident between the bench and SMU's Chris Wallingford at the end of that game two weeks ago at the AUC.
