With the addition of Philippe Trudeau to the Tommies line-up, STU is hoping to make a serious push towards the 2015 AUS playoffs.  They currently sit nine points back of 6th place Moncton for the final playoff spot.

The 6' 6" goaltender takes up a lot of net so lets hope this will be an important piece of the puzzle that the Tommies were missing in the first half of the season.  Below you can find a quote from Coach Pat Powers', Trudeau's stats, and a few videos.  Welcome to the St. Thomas community Phil.
"Powers has kept tabs on Trudeau all season, especially when workhorse netminder Jon Groenheyde decided in mid-August he wouldn’t be returning. 
“I was recruiting him throughout the summer,” Powers said. “Obviously when Jon kind of disappeared on us in August, I made sure to keep in touch with Phil throughout the first half, just periodically.
“He texted me a few days before Christmas and said he was leaving pro and he was thinking about CIS.” From the Daily Gleaner
