ALUMNI UPDATE: Hennigar, Bowman

In today's Daily Gleaner Bruce Hallihan gives us an update on former V-Reds Rob Hennigar and David Bowman, both of whom are playing for Sportivi Ghiaccio Cortina in the Italian league Serie A. Hennigar, the 2008 CIS male athlete of the year, currently leads the team with 42 points (15 goals, 27 assists) in 25 games. Meanwhile, Bowman has chipped in with 12 points (2 goals, 10 assists) in 26 games, which places him second on the club among defencemen.

During Hennigar's four year CIS career he helped lead UNB to a National Championship (2007) and a runner-up finish (2008), while becoming the team's all-time leading scorer (which has since been broken by Hunter Tremblay). Bowman, who played three seasons for UNB, won a CIS Gold in both 2007 and 2009, while capturing a CIS Silver in 2008.

Hennigar ended his career as UNB's all-time leading scorer, but he has since been eclipsed by Hunter Tremblay.

Yea...I meant it in the sense that he left as the all time leading scorer. I assume most know Tremblay is now the leader...but I will add that just to avoid any confusion.

How stupid is it that you have to pay $19.95/month to read the Daily Gleaner....outrageous. Don't bother posting links to the article because nobody is paying that money. Just copy and paste the article on here.

It's is too bad that many UNB hockey fans around the country are being asked to pay $19.95 a month to basically follow the game by game results and features written about the UNB hockey game. This site does a great job but it was nice to have the extra input as well.
Would it be possible for UNB to try to negotiate a better rate on behalf of the parents and fans especially those out of province who are really not interested in the numerous other links to newspapers but rather only to the Sports section of the Daily Gleaner?
