Dal & Acadia Come to Freddy Beach

Well after a long hard weekend in the Bluenose Province the St. Thomas Tommies Men's hockey team suffered two losses in NS to the Saint Mary's Huskies and the St. FX X-Men.

This weekend the guys take on the Dalhousie Tigers on Friday night and the Acadia Axemen on Saturday, both games are at the GH Centre at 7pm. These are the first home games for the Tommies who are coming back after the Christmas break

The Tigers are coming into Freddy Beach Friday night on the heels of two losses, one to UPEI (2-1) and the other a shut-out loss to the Squirrels (3-0). The Tigers are coming to town with some controversy following them after an announcement that some players have received financial awards above and beyond tuition and fees. At this point the CIS has not handed down any suspensions or placed the team under any sanctions.

On Saturday night the Tommies are taking on Acadia. The Axemen are headed into town after a loss to the Squirrels (4-2) and a loss to UPEI also (4-2). Even with two losses last weekend this team is still plenty dangerous.  The teams leading scorer Andrew Clark will be on a mission to get the ship back on course and make a move to get back in front of the Squirrels in the AUS standings.

The Tommies did have an addition to the line-up over the Christmas break, goaltender Tyler Piercy has joined the team. Tyler is joining the Green and Gold after playing for the Woodstock Slammers and Miramichi Timberwolves of the MHL also having played a handful of games in the QMJHL for Lewiston MAINEiacs as well as the Acadie-Bathurst Titan.

Also defenceman Christian Morin back in the line-up, he is a welcome addition back to the blue-line for the Tommies, also hopefully we will see the return of forward Randy Cameron. Unfortunately with the loss of Robert Zandbeek due to injury as a result of blocking a shot during the game against St. FX, having Morin and Cameron back on the ice will be a welcome sight.

Come on out to the Grant/Harvey Centre for a pair of what will be exciting games in AUS Men's hockey action!
