V-Reds take on StFX and SMU this weekend

This weekend, The CIS #1 ranked UNB V-Reds travel to Nova Scotia to take on the CIS #7 ranked StFX X-Men and the SMU Huskies on Friday and Saturday night.

Tonight, the V-Reds (2-0-0) travel to Antigonish to face the CIS #7 X-Men (1-1-0) at the Keating Millennium Centre at 7pm. It was only last Saturday night that these two teams did battle at the AUC in Fredericton, with the V-Reds coming out on top with a score of 3-1 and outshooting the X-Men 32-20.

For the 12th National poll in a row (11 last season and one this season) The V-Reds were voted as the #1 team in the Nation by a committee of media members from across Canada. The V-Reds received 15 of 17 possible first place votes, and have topped 43 of the last 65 polls (.662) since 2006-07. The V-Reds are currently being led in scoring by a pair of rookies, Tyler Carrroll (2G 1A) and Taylor MacDougall (1G 2A).

The X-Men may have lost their first game of the regular season to the V-Reds, but came back the next night and soundly defeated the CIS #11 ranked UPEI Panthers (1-1-0) by a score of 5-2. The X-Men are led in scoring by last year’s CIS Rookie of the Year Jason Bast (2G) and Josh Day (1G 1A).

Saturday night, the V-Reds travel to Halifax to take on the SMU Huskies (0-2-0) at 7pm at the Halifax Forum. The SMU Huskies have not had a great start to the 2011-12 regular season, losing both of their opening contests last weekend. Friday night they were defeated 5-2 by the UPEI Panthers, and then fell 3-1 the V-Reds on Saturday night. The Huskies are led in scoring by Parker Deighan, Michael Stickland, and Matt Tipoff, each with one goal.

The X-Men game can be seen as a webcast here, while the SMU webcast can be found here, and as always, you can follow UNBHockey on Twitter.
