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. The loss wrapped up an underwhelming season for a team that qualified for the U SPORTS University Cup a year ago. At the Christmas break, the Ravens found themselves with a 10-7-1 record, and split back-to-back games eight times. By the end of the season, the Ravens were able to become more consistent, and finished fourth in the Ontario University Athletics (OUA) East with a record of 16-9-3. “I feel like in general we felt like we underachieved . . .

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.
