Tommies regular season schedules -   Our long wait for hockey to return is coming fast and we'll soon be able to watch our Tommies back in action.  The AUS regular season begins for the Lady Tommies on Saturday, October 15th at home against the Mount Allison Mounties.  Full AUS Women's Hockey Schedule

The men begin on the road at Dalhousie on Friday, October 14th.  Full AUS Men's Hockey Schedule. We tweeted both links on June 30th.  If you want to follow us on Twitter please click on the link to your left or @stutommies when you're signed on.

I have inquired about the men's exhibition schedule but have not heard back to date but I do have a few dates to share.

Saturday, September 24th @ Acadia 4 PM.
Thursday, September 29th vs. St-FX 7 PM (LBR?)
Saturday, October 1st vs. UQTR 4 PM (LBR?)
Saturday, October 8th @ U de M 7 PM (Game to be played in Grand Falls)

We are not playing the Squirrels or Huskies in exhibition play this fall and no word on UPEI but a good bet would be Dalhousie on the 23rd in Halifax, not official by any means, just a shot in the dark.  There doesn't appear to be a NCAA road trip scheduled for this year.  (See exhibition schedule above)

New updated STU Athletics site -  A new look athletics website is coming soon for St. Thomas but when the official "start up" date will be is still a mystery.  It will probably coincide with the beginning of classes.

Troy Ryan happy with new OHL recruits - Here is how Coach Ryan described his new right winger. “Sanza is a complete player who will be a welcome addition to our program, both on and off the ice...With a combination of his leadership, work ethic, and skill, Sanza promises to have an immediate impact on our program.

Our new D-man from Guelph. “At 6’2” 205 lbs, Van Laren is known around the OHL for his physical play and his high battle level. Chris is a thorn in the side of many smaller offensive players as he developed into a shutdown guy for the Guelph Storm...Our program is very excited to have Van Laren be part of the St. Thomas community. We will expect big things from him as we continue to work towards building this program.

A night with Bob McKenzie -  The St. Thomas hockey programs are excited to be bringing in TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie on Friday, September 9th at 6:30 PM.  For more information about this event please check out STU Athletics.

  2. SO with the new recruits mostly identified who are the returning veterans? for 2011-2012?
    Thank you.
