18th annual Lou Chabot Memorial Game goes tonight

It's that time once again when the St. Thomas University community pays tribute to a young man that passed away much too soon.  Tonight marks the 18th annual Lou Chabot Memorial Game and the last time it will be played at the LBR where Lou skated proudly in Green and Gold for two seasons.

Tonight's game against UNB will be the third meeting of the season between the cross campus rivals, both won by the Squirrels, including an overtime victory the last time they played in December.

Both teams are currently on losing streaks, so one will end tonight.  UNB has lost two straight and STU 7 in a row, not to mention something like a 29 game nightmare at the hands of our favourite pals in red and black.

The game tonight will also be UNB's last foray into the old "Beav".  This was of course their home rink for 20 odd years until the AUC opened in the mid 70's.  Rest assured they will be looking to close out their final game at the LBR with a W.

STU season passes will not be honoured this evening.  Tickets are available at the JB O'Keefe Fitness Centre on campus, MacTavish's Source for Sport on Queen Street, and at the LBR after 4 PM.

Good luck Tommies.
