Anderson, McIvor Returning

The 2019-2020 University of New Brunswick Reds got a boost to their line-up as it was announced today that defenceman - and team captain - Marcus McIvor and forward Stephen Anderson will both be returning for their fifth season.

The slick skating Anderson is coming off of the best season of his UNB career, finishing 6th in the league with 33 points while playing in all 30 regular season contests. He will be looking to improve on his career totals of 39 goals and 59 assists in 102 games.

Meanwhile, the steady, but perhaps unheralded, play of Marcus McIvor was on full display at the University Cup, where he was named a tournament all-star. His shot blocking ability and penalty kill play were key components during UNB's championship run, especially in the national championship game against Alberta.

Both players will be looking for a school-record 4th University Cup championship this season, which gets underway with an exhibition game against Acadia on September 16th.
