February 2018 report

The Aardvarks posted a 3-3-1 record over the month of February.

With playoffs out of sight for the Aardvarks, they dressed a few affiliated players to see how they jelled with the veterans. Some notable standouts were Mitch Johnson and Darren Sigurgeirson. Johnson notched a whopping 11 points over 3 games played while Sigurgeirson sniped in 7 goals in his one game tryout. It will be interesting to see if either one of them can crack the 2018-19 Aardvark line-up.

In other news, GM Gunner Gislason is currently negotiating with the Commissioner of the RCMP to extend Evan Kassay’s contract for the 2018-19 IRHL season. The commissioner is a tough negotiator but Gunner is willing to sign Kassay at all costs, even offering the Aardvark roster to take turns patrolling the Municipality of Bifrost-Riverton in place of Kassay when he takes his summer holidays.

Kassay continually works to improve and refine his skills.

“Cory Johannesson is determined to reach the 70 goal plateau this season. How will he score his 70th goal” poll results

The Aardvarks’ Nation has spoken… they have no idea how Johannesson is going to pot his 70th goal of the season.

Sitting with 68 goals going into this Wednesday’s game against the Comrades, Johannesson is eager to reach 70. Although the numbers are on his side, owning  a 3.16 career goals per game average against the Comrades, he is up against the leading IRHL Vezina Trophy candidate of the year, Ryan Jonson.

January 2018 Report

The Aardvarks struggled to get their overall record above 500 this January recording a 2-3-2 record over the month.

With the 2017-18 season coming to a close, it is looking like the Aardvarks are going to be sellers, rather than buyers, this upcoming trade deadline. The lads have struggled to find their true form this season. The only Aardvark safe from negative criticism is netminder Jayde Barkman, who is currently on pace to break former Aardvark Curtis Chyzy’s 2009-10 team record of facing 1218 shots in a single season.

In other news, Aardvark’s shut-down D-man Jon Finnson is sacrificing the remainder of the IRHL season to work in the oilfields of Alberta to increase the Aardvark’s petty cash fund. He is determined to make enough money to supply the team with post game Reuben sandwiches for the upcoming 2018-19 campaign.

“When Gunner’s IRHL career comes to an end, which sport should he master next” poll results

The results are in. The Aardvarks Nation has decided Gunner’s post retirement endeavours by selecting his next achievement….mastering the art of hide and seek.

Associate Captain Gislason is planning on asking his father, Kenneth Gislason, to organize an alfalfa hay bale maze this upcoming summer in order to begin his training for The Nascondino World Championships, the annual international hide and seek championship, held in Italy. Gislason is sure to succeed in this competition upon retirement from the IRHL.

December 2017 Report

The Aardvarks posted a 3-3-0 record this past December.

The Aardvarks have yet to hit full stride this 2017/18 IRHL Season. The team greatly misses having forward Caleb Kanteluk in the lineup on a consistent basis, as they are 4-1-0 with him on the ice. Kanteluk has been missing games due to the outrageous prices of pork at the Arborg CO-OP. To battle these inflated prices, Kanteluk has purchased pigs that he has to take care of most nights when the Aardvarks are in action. After the upcoming butchering of his pigs, the team expects Kanteluk to return on a regular basis.
