Men’s hockey regroups before break

At the midway point of the season, the Ravens men’s hockey team can be best described as surprising. The team is coming off a disappointing first-round exit during the 2016-17 season, which saw the departure of head coach Marty Johnson in the off-season. Also leaving the team were top-line-centre and last season’s leader in points on the team, Michael McNamee. In a pre-season interview with The Charlatan, interim head coach Shaun Van Allen said the team would have to start playing more physically. “I don’t want us to be an easy team to play if we’re going to be beat, I want the other team to know that they had to play a full 60 minutes to beat us,” Van […]

Ravens vs. Gee-Gees: Colonel By Classic preview

Since the return of the University of Ottawa (U of O) Gee-Gees men’s hockey program in 2016, the two schools have made a bigger effort to promote and make an event of their rivalry game. The second annual Colonel By Classic will take place on Nov. 17 at the TD Arena. The Ravens are the current holders of the Colonel By Classic banner after a 6-2 win last year. Despite the early confidence that the win at the Colonel By Classic instilled, the Ravens team went on to have a lackluster year. Carleton struggled all season with an underperforming power play and poor defensive zone play, leading to a record of 16-9-3. The team tied with the Université du Québec […]
