Men’s hockey reflects on underwhelming season

The Carleton Ravens men’s hockey team’s season ended after a first round elimination at the hands of the Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières (UQTR) Patriotes back on Feb. 19.

Sports Blog: Redden talks about his return to Ottawa

I still remember the team like it was yesterday. Daniel Alfredsson, Jason Spezza, Dany Heatley, Zdeno Chara and of course—Wade Redden.
