Aardvark Jason Gulay hangs onions outside his front door a month before the IRHL season. This is a good way to keep the negative hockey Gods out of a house.
Caleb Kanteluk is the official Athletic Mechanic for the Aardvarks. His mechanic bag includes booster cables, a tire iron, a crescent wrench, a hammer, a flat-head screwdriver, a skate sharpening stone and WD-40.
The second annual Christmas turkey of the game award goes to Gunner Gislason. Even though the Aardvarks outshone the Comrades tonight, Gunner was not his usual self…recording a season low -3 in tonight’s affair.
The winner of Guess that Aardvark is Daryl Fuz who correctly guessed his brother Jeff was the mystery Aardvark. Daryl wins an all inclusive trip with Jeff to Bangalore, India to celebrate Raksha Bandhan, a festival that celebrates the love and duty between brothers.
Thanks to everyone who participated! Stay tuned for future contests with the Aardvarks.

Interviewer: Rate the following activities in order from most important to least important: watching TV, playing hockey, going on vacation, washing dishes and mowing grass.
Aardvark in question: Hockey, mowing grass, watching TV, vacation and washing dishes. The dish soap makes my hands too soft.
Interviewer: What is your favourite pre-rec game meal?
Aardvark in question: A&W Teen Burger.
Interviewer: How many rolls of sock tape do you go through in a rec season?
Aardvark in question: Not many. Usually just borrow from Gunner.
Interviewer: Who was your favourite hockey player growing up?
Aardvark in question: Steve Yzerman. I admired how he played his final few years with bad knees and still produced. I know from painful experience that it is difficult.
Interviewer: What member of the Aardvarks reminds you most of a NHLer from past or present?
Aardvark in question: Travis Bobbee reminds me of Tyson Barrie. Both excellent puck movers.
Interviewer: What is your greatest hockey moment?
Aardvark in question: Winning the MMJHL Hockey Hutch Player of the Week Award in the 96-97 season. I tallied 4 goals and 3 assists on a Sunday afternoon against the Portage Terriers. I can’t remember if I was drunk, hungover or just normal. But, it was an honour.
Interviewer: Where should the Aardvarks hold training camp for the upcoming 2017-18 season?
Aardvark in question: MTS Centre. I am sure we would draw a couple thousand dedicated ‘Vark fans.
Interviewer: What is your least favourite arena to play in? What is your favourite arena to play in?
